    CNN poll

    Romney looked maniacal and Obama seemed disinterested or distracted. Of course, no ones knows what's going on in secret around the world. Two people show up to debate, one with no responsibility, the other, responsible for keeping the world together.

    Re: The Debate Thread

    Obama did a terrible job tonight in the debate. He let Romney walk all over him, and missed so many opportunities to call out Romney on such glaringly obtuse contradictions to Romney's own campaign. And that closing statement? Awful. That's your 2 minutes you know to rehearse for. Shape up, Mr. President.

    Re: The Debate Thread

    Per my challenge to myself, I have refrained from watching any post-debate commentary- I even rmanaged to resist reading any posts in this thread before posting. So, time to make a complete ass of myself... I will amend this once I have the proper talking points...

    I think overall the debate was kinda blah... I didn't see any "gotcha/a-ha" moment/implosion that is going to get serious airplay post-debate. I do think Romney was able to make this debate about Obama and his record. I think particularly early on, Romney came across better to truly undecided voters- obviously nothing major happened that is going to change minds. I do think Romney lost a little steam midway though when it became very apparent that he was still going to refuse to talk about the specifics of any of his policy changes; I loved how he completely pivoted dropping the tax/budget plan he has been promoting for the last year. I think the president's best moments were pointing out this recurring theme of no plans on the part of Romney. Though I disagree with his point/logic, I think Romney's most compelling line was about spending $90 billion on renewable energy that could have been spent on hiring two million teachers. I think Romney's position of still refusing to actually stand for anything specific helped him here as the president has an actual record and is not afforded the same luxury. And, finally, as I've said before, all Romney had to do to "win" was repeat ad naseum how bad the economy is- which he did.

    Thus, overall, regarding the immediate effect of the debate on viewers at home, I think Romney had the slight advantage. However, in the longer term- once the media gets ahold of the fact the Romney still refuses to talk about "complicated" specifics and subequently presses him/ his capaign on this- I think it becomes closer to a wash.

    Overall, I see Romney getting a 1-1.5% bounce in the national polls from this by the end of the week. Now time to turn on MSNBC and see what I got wrong.

    Re: The Debate Thread

    I'll admit, Romney did a lot better than I expected him to, but he didn't hit a home run either.

    Problem was, it was "Massachusetts Mitt" up there, not the "Republican Romney" that the GOP picked. The TeaBaggers and Evangelicals aren't going to like that one bit.

    Obama needed to be more on the offensive, not on the defensive. Then again, if he got too aggressive on Romney, it would've made Obama look like a bully or an asshole. Hopefully, Obama used this opportunity to gauge Romney and adjust his tactics for Round 2 & 3.

    I hope the next debate has someone else as moderator. Dude totally lost control of the debate, and just let everyone go past the allotted time and speak over each other.

    The bad news for Romney is that while he managed not to swallow his own tongue, he gave Obama a lot of ammo for next round, once FactCheck debunks 90% of what Romney said.

    Re: The Debate Thread

    Hmmmmm, just finished watching the debates on the Tube. While Obama could have done so much better, I wonder if his plan was to let Romney stick his foot in his mouth. Yes, Romney seemed more animated and aggressive, but I can't get over how tacky he came across as he fought with Jim Lehrer ( whowasted 3 minutes telling everybody they had 2 minutes left).
    So I did my best to ignore all that hand waving Romney was doing and paid attention to what he was saying.

    His whole economic plan, yes the plan he chastised non-partisan groups who gave him an F for arithmetic suddenly went out the window!
    He's gonna replace Obamacare with. . . . .Obamacare? Huh?
    He went on this spiel about lowering rates and cutting spending and providing no revenue. He'd just close loopholes and deductions without giving any specifics! Even if I were an overrated, knuckleheaded undecided voter, I'd still want to know what Romney is going to do.

    I can't believe he flip-flopped in front of the whole nation!

    Re: The Debate Thread

    It was pretty even. Romney didn't win squat... refuj is right. Conservatives on here will try to paint this as a win... but the reality is it's not. I think it was more for Obama to see what Romney is like. One of my friends said Romney was like a shady used car salesman trying to sell a shitbox tonight... and he does it with a fake smile and lies. I tend to agree with the assessment.

    Romney didn't destroy anyone. It's not "over".

    And Romney may get a small bounce, until the next tape comes out.

    Look at it this way, what Romney says in the 47% tape is what he really feels. People wonder where he stands.... that's it. I figured it out. Where he stands is not what he says in public.

    I just don't get why some here were so excited about his performance. Can you point to some specifics he offered? Oh wait... that's right. He's up there selling us a lemon. And if I recall the debates have a really marginal effect on polling... a 1-1.5% jump is far less then what Romney got at the convention.

    Not only that Romney was wrong on various issues, including on the petroleum industry. I hope Polifact dissects his entire set of BS.

    perhaps too late
    Mitt is finding his stride? With what? Lying to the American public and offering phony snake oil without any real specifics? May I ask what specifics that Romney is offering to make this country better? Because I didn't see any. I saw generalities, falsehoods and... Snake oil. That's all it is. Romney will get destroyed by Polifact tomorrow.

    Yeah, I noticed that, too. Romney completely backed off his previous emphasis of helping the rich get richer, and presented himself as some kind of champion of tax cuts for the middle class. He said not a word about keeping the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, one of his most insistent economic demands since his campaign began.

    I thought it was a good message, but I imagined that the Republicans were squirming in their seats. This was the old, liberal Mitt, raising its ugly head again (and once again delivering yet another inconsistent message).

    Agree again. Lehrer is a great newsman, but he totally lost control of this debate. He let Romney walk all over him, and handed Romney an advantage in so doing. Lehrer's job was to guide the discussion and enforce fairness. He did neither.

    In formal debates, the speakers can see a clock which counts down their available time. They can see when time is running out, and wrap up their comments. They are not permitted to speak one second beyond their allotted time.

    The problem for Obama (and Democrats generally) is that they focus on the message, not the delivery. Audiences invariably judge debates not on how reasonable is the message, but on the demeanor and apparent confidence of the debaters. Obama needs to focus on his presentation, not his message.

    Gads.

    That was awful.

    1) Jim Lehrer needs to retire. Hand him his hat and overcoat and "farewell" Harry and David deluxe fruit basket and call him a taxi. NO moderator worth his salt let's himself get "steamrolled" by the man standing behind the podium. I don't care WHO that man is... It was embarrassing.

    2) They will be wearing fur coats in Hell tomorrow because Gov. Romney won this debate this evening, (Pains me as it does to say that...)

    3) WHO exactly removed Obama's testicles before this event ? I realize it's your anniversary, Mr. President, but save a little jizz for AFTER the debate, could ya ? I've never seen the man look SO dejected. He had the affect of a 10 year-old whose older brother just pissed in his Count Chocula.

    SO many missed opportunities. NO mention of that "lazy, no account" 47 percent of the population.

    I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

    Perhaps Obama is playing his cards close to his vest and is going to lay down an inside straight on the table when Romney least expects it. But, they're only a couple of rounds left and our country's fate hangs in the balance.

    Color me officially worried at this point in the game.

    As usual, most of what Romney said was a lie, most of what Obama said was true.

    Romney pays for initial success with first wave of fact checks.

    Obama wins for truth - although I don't suppose anyone cares about that.

    It's pretty obvious by now that Obama doesn't show his hand too soon. If he was too aggressive with Romney, the GOP shills would spin it as "bullying" or even worse, "the negro is getting all uppity". Obama didn't have to do much other than stand back and let Romney spew one lie and contradiction after another.

    Still, Barrack could have at least downed a Red Bull or 2 before hand and put a bit more pep in his debate.

    Thank you! I thought I was watching two Democrats debate. LOL!

    The problem for Obama (and Democrats generally) is that they focus on the message, not the delivery. Audiences invariably judge debates not on how reasonable is the message, but on the demeanor and apparent confidence of the debaters. Obama needs to focus on his presentation, not his message.
    I think Romney's provided plenty of message for Democrats to use out on the campaign trail. He dropped the conservatives like a hot potato and revealed that Massachusetts moderate they've been suspicious of from the get-go. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's just not how today's conservatives roll. It'll be interesting to see how he transitions back into a "severe conservative".
    I also get the impression that Romney kinda blew his wad on this debate. I just can't believe that the "47%" and "self-deport" comments will not come up in future debates, and by that time people won't remember the first debate. That could be where Obama and his team are hedging their bets. It's that last debate that's going to count, and Obama's taken Mitt's measure.

    Yeah, the man is an out and out liar. I guess his sons are, too (according to Mitt). Granted, he's probably lying about them, too, but I know apples don't fall far from the tree.

    Lmao. Well Im glad someone else picked up on this, Romney destroyed himself tonight. He did put his foot in his mouth, Obama did let himself get raped by Romney. Mitt just cant catch a break, and this debate will catch up to him, like every other dumb thing he has said in front of or behind an audience.

    I can see it now, "Mitt we know you only tell the truth when your behind closed doors, how do we know your telling the truth now?"

    You're right about this. By the time the 3rd debate rolls around, no one will remember the 1st one. It's the 3rd debate they'll remember before going to the polls, so it's important not to blow your load on the first one. The fact checkers are raping Romney right now and it's going to provide fodder for all the people out stumping for Obama. At that third debate Obama better lower the boom on Romney when it comes to his stance on the 47%, gay marriage, tax cuts, women's rights, and immigration/self-deportation, as well as the needs of the middle class. I think that's their game plan. I could be wrong, though.

    It is all about hating Obama more than loving the Republicans for some.

    But don't begrudge Chance experiencing a tingle down his leg today.

    He's been rabidly supporting Mitt for months now while playing coy about how he'll vote.

    Today is like coming out for him.

    Breaking News from Chance .... "Mitt won the debate". As if you didn't hear that 10,000 times already on here. Who is really disagreeing with you on here that you feel the need to keep repeating it? From what I see, everyone basically is agreeing with you.

    However, what is your reply above supposed to mean? Are you implying that I was saying that Lehrer "didn't help Obama enough"????

    I was criticizing Lehrer for allowing Obama to speak over by 4 minutes.

    I was responding on the cock stroking not initiating

    Ask TX

    Btw - David "droopy dog" Axelrod is doing his standard

    "What it appears you experienced did in fact not happen"

    Mark Halperin said the Pres. Was dominated

    People who watched ......: see that Mitt is strong, smart and isn't afraid to be Pres

    Interested to see the "he's a liar" media inserts

    As u recall And the overplayed "fact check" stuff

    Clearly Obama needs more notes - more cue cards - more earpieces to hear then say rebuttals

    2 more to go

    So mitt doesn't have much time to celebrate

    Re: The Debate Thread

    My impression is Obama was overconfident. The media polls, by exaggerating the probable Democrat turn out, have created the impression that Obama has it in the bag. Obama went into the debate thinking, the voters are with me, Romney's ideas are wrong, the whole debate is a waste of time. While Romney was talking, Obama was looking down and saying to himself, yeah, yeah, yeah, blah, blah, blah. Let's get this over.
    As you know, I have consistently predicted, not only a Romney win, but a landslide. His victory in the debate confirms my opinion, but I think a landslide was inevitable anyway.
    Obama is in more trouble next time, talking about foreign policy.
    But Ryan v Biden will be the most fun. With Biden, nothing is too outrageous and, backed into a corner, trying desperately to make up for Obama's loss, he will be at his most unpredictable. Gaffecity here we come.

    Poor Barry. He should have followed Biden's advice . . .

    I do feel sorry for all those people in Chicago who had to stay up all night and scheme a response?

    Jim Lehrer did a terrible job. He allowed Romney to bully his way around the debate. Romney likes to be in control of the situation and like any spoiled child he's used to getting his own way.

    The President should have taken the several opportunities to stand up to Mitt's lies but didn't.

    2) They will be wearing fur coats in Hell tomorrow because Gov. Romney won this debate this evening, (Pains me as it does to say that...)

    3) WHO exactly removed Obama's testicles before this event ?... I've never seen the man look SO dejected. He had the affect of a 10 year-old whose older brother just pissed in his Count Chocula.

    SO many missed opportunities. NO mention of that "lazy, no account" 47 percent of the population.

    I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

    Perhaps Obama is playing his cards close to his vest and is going to lay down an inside straight on the table when Romney least expects it. But, they're only a couple of rounds left and our country's fate hangs in the balance.
    I have a proposal for a new debate format: let Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly ask the questions.

    They might get the candidates energized enough to get some blood flowing.

    Re: The Debate Thread

    Clearly Obama failed in the debate- Romney told lie after lie and the Prez didn't call him on one of them...Lehrer was worthless as a moderator- he works for PBS and Romney says he wants to shut it down- ah, Jim- you still let him rail road you after that??? Romney kept going on and on about how much he would help the poor and Obama doesn't mention the 47% comment once???? 90% of what Romney said last night was contrary to what he's been saying the last year- the ole etch a sketch got a work out last night!!! Sadly, he'll probably get a 1-2 point bump out of it...undecided voters won't fact check- if the gave a damn about the facts, they would have checked them by now!

    Romney shouldn't let his guard down going forward.
    This. I think this was planned by the Obama campaign. Just sit back and let this guy spew all of his crap then come back in the next debates and make him fess up to all the bullshit he said.

    Let's hope so.

    I emailed the campaign (in response to a request for a donation) that the President ought to call Romney out on that 12 million job claim right off the bat in the next debate, regardless of format. There's not a reputable economist on the planet who thinks that can be done -- unless Romney wants to increase the deficit by a trillion a year to revive the CCC.

    Re: The Debate Thread

    Two points:

    1. Romney won this debate, that's obvious. Obama was inert, and though he did manage to land a few punches, he largely left Romney to rampage free. I think he came underprepared and expecting Romney to just lie and make himself look stupid. Romney lied his ass off, but didn't appear stupid. I expect next debate to be better. Obama is a superb debater, he won't fail twice.

    2. Romney did not "destroy" Obama. Truth is, the bump he will get from this is not going to be huge. By this point the only people who don't know who they're voting for, have either lived under a rock until now, or are complete and total morons. Anyone who would change their mind on who to vote for based on Romney's confident vagueness from last night clearly needs to stick to Jersey Shore and leave voting for the grown-ups...

    A friend of mine phoned about an hour ago and this is the exact analogy I used in describing Romney's performance. I just now saw you posted it here. Glad to see someone else recognized it..... a fast talking used car salesman. When asked specifics about the car they don't respond to the question just go one talking about something else.

    I thought this also. President Obama sat back and allowed Mitt to make a fool of himself spewing out his lies. Allow Mitt to dig his own grave. The President realized the fact checkers would destroy him afterwards.

    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-me...ential-debate/

    Don't know if this has been posted yet... most of Mitt Romney's claims were either "mostly false" or "completely false" according to Politifact. Obama was telling the truth on most of the things he said, including on Romney wanting to raise taxes on the middle class. I have the feeling that the Obama campaign wanted the used car salesman, erhm... politician to say as much bullshit as he could so they could sink him later in ads. He's a compulsive liar. Very little of what he said was the truth, and the tid bit on college grads while truthful doesn't take into account context. College grads take time to find the right job... while doing temporary jobs in the meantime.

    Mitt Romney the compulsive bullsh*t artist, and I strongly believe that this "initial win" will turn into a loss. He put his foot into his mouth even if it was sugarcoated.

    Sugary on the outside, rotten on the inside. I'm glad certain folks thought it was necessary to gush over his used car salesman performance. Congratulations you just bought a lemon.

    Oh and will the racist comments stop in this thread? I'm sure there is a Log Cabin message board one or two particular posters (who I will not name) can visit.

    Obama didn't make a fool of himself. Most of the stuff he said was truthful or mostly truthful, according to a non-partisan website. Boasting over the sugary performance by Romney may be the initial reaction, but if you dive deeper you'll see it's just sugarcoating. Obama will have to bring up the lies Romney said... Romney was outright lying at certain points.

    I think overall the debate was kinda blah... I didn't see any "gotcha/a-ha" moment/implosion that is going to get serious airplay post-debate. I do think Romney was able to make this debate about Obama and his record. I think particularly early on, Romney came across better to truly undecided voters- obviously nothing major happened that is going to change minds. I do think Romney lost a little steam midway though when it became very apparent that he was still going to refuse to talk about the specifics of any of his policy changes; I loved how he completely pivoted dropping the tax/budget plan he has been promoting for the last year. I think the president's best moments were pointing out this recurring theme of no plans on the part of Romney. Though I disagree with his point/logic, I think Romney's most compelling line was about spending $90 billion on renewable energy that could have been spent on hiring two million teachers. I think Romney's position of still refusing to actually stand for anything specific helped him here as the president has an actual record and is not afforded the same luxury. And, finally, as I've said before, all Romney had to do to "win" was repeat ad naseum how bad the economy is- which he did.

    Thus, overall, regarding the immediate effect of the debate on viewers at home, I think Romney had the slight advantage. However, in the longer term- once the media gets ahold of the fact the Romney still refuses to talk about "complicated" specifics and subequently presses him/ his capaign on this- I think it becomes closer to a wash.

    Overall, I see Romney getting a 1-1.5% bounce in the national polls from this by the end of the week. Now time to turn on MSNBC and see what I got wrong.
    Eh... I didn't do so bad without any help. I do think the damage is potentially slightly worse than my initial assessment only because it does set off the potential for a perfect storm scenario. If for example, the jobs report is worse than expected tomorrow, Mitt essentially gets two weeks of momentum... the VP debate should be fun... but isn't big news... unless Biden is allowed somehow to paint Ryan as the extreme nutjob he is with regards to women's rights/ social issues and his ridiculous budget... which, while Romney can run away from, he cannot (except by I suppose claiming Mitt is the presidential candidate and his views are meaningless).

    I think Obama made two tremendous mistakes during the debate, the first which is kind of understandable, the second which is incomprehensible:
    1.) The campaign misjudged that Romney would, in fact, still not only refuse to outline ANY of the details on ANYTHING (taxes, budget, health care, Dodd-Frank, etc.) , but would even backtrack on the sprinkling of minor details he has been campaigning on for the last 18 months. The ludicrousness of which left the president (and me) dumbfounded, but he never really called Romney out on this. I mean, how hard is it to say, "So, you've told us the magical good things about your plan, but not how it would actually be feasible. Would you hire someone who refused to provide such details? I guess we will just have to take your word on it- just like on your taxes..."
    2.) The Obama campaign seemed tremendously overconcerned with hurting Obama's "likeability" ratios, which was an epic miscalculation... Obama is sly enough that he comes across as likeable even when throwing subtle jabs. Noone wanted him to be acerbic... but, I mean, something... He didn't have to bring up "zingers" on his own, but simply respond to Romney's nonsense with something for the soundbites... how is 47% mentioned not once when Romney starts railing about how much he loves the poor?

    That being said, I stand by my statement that no major lasting "sound bite" was created. Obama had the potentially strong but underplayed "Romney's plan is suddenly 'nevermind'" and Romney's most memorable sound bite was about Big Bird. Thus, there was no knockout blow, but Romney clearly won the stylistic battle on points throughout. The Obama campaign will be able to mitigate some of the damage in "fact checks" of Romney's nonsense... assuming the jobs report is not horrendous... but certainly not all of it. Unfortunately, a debate is about style not substance... and, as we joked about in another thread, most undecideds aren't exactly "high information" voters...

    All the babble about Romney's lack of specificity overlooks that Obama's only plan for the economy is more "tax the rich". And quibling about the accuracy of each others statistics will not win votes. It is just quibbling. Calling everything Romney says a lie is just partisan sqwabbling, which the public does not want to hear.
    Next he has to face the public over his failed foreign policy. It will not be a pretty picture.

    Obama failed in Foreign Policy? Are you that serious? Romney botched his chance at Foreign Policies when he was at the Olympics in London, and in Poland.....the people were screaming Obama's name joyfully, and drowned out Romney. Romney botched it again in Israel....He's the laughing stock of American Voters! Romney is an absolute embarrassment to USA!

    Romney came to Fight last night and Obama came with the Facts....For Style & Performance Romney gets an A+ and the Crown...Obama gets an F- for taking the Nice President route and letting Romney dance all over that stage....

    The main thing I took away from last night's debate is that Romney will say ANYTHING to become President. I believe he'd sell out Ann and his children to accomplish the one thing his Dad could not....

    And I know The Donald was tickled to Death that the President said his name...
