My Favorite Quote of the Night: OBAMA
"ONE area we agree on is the importance of parents and the importance of schools." -President Obama
Biggest Missed Opportunity: ROMNEY
During the Equal pay for women portion, Romney squandered an opportunity by not pointing out that women CURRENTLY working in Obama's White House are making less than the men. (Second missed was the 2-3 times Romney said the middle class had been buried over the past four years he didn't attribute the quote to Biden!)
Travesty of the Night: CROWLEY
The Man was annoyed all day yesterday that CNN's Candy Crowley was moderating the debate. I assured him that she would be as impartial as possible. I mistakenly thought a National stage would ensure that. The fact that Obama ended up with 4 full extra minutes and that her on-stage Fact Checking was erroneous wins her the "Travesty of the Night."
The President of the United States using the terms "jerked around" and "gang bangers" during a Presidential debate. And, how many times did the President say "mentally ill?!" Is there some huge epidemic of the mentally ill brandishing automatic weapons of which I am unaware?
My Tweet immediately after the debate ended:
Before I listen to or read any spin...Obama did better than last time, but Romney still won in my estimation. #debate
