Debate II


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."

Strangest: OBAMA

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

One of these moderators needs to ask Barack the relatively simple question, "What is an S corp?" It won't happen because they don't know themselves, but I would love to see him stutter through the answer. He knows nothing about the economy.

I think my TV actually tilted when Candy Crowley threw her weight behind Obama.

I want someone to ask Obama how one becomes a millionaire as Community Organizer...talk about the American Dream!

That is a good question. We all know how Romney made his money. Let's find out how Obama made his. He isn't exactly a pauper.

"that her on-stage Fact Checking was erroneous "

I wish someone would explain this for me, what exactly was incorrect with her statement?

Romney's answer regarding equal pay for women was laughable. It reminded me of how when I say the GOP has done little to appeal to blacks and Latinos, conservatives hold up Allen West and Marco Rubio and imply "Yes we have, problem solved."

Romney also displayed brute CEO behavior last night. If you contradict him or even try to get him to stay within the pre-ordained talking time he gets all flustered and starts stalking around the stage. You know... acting entitled.

Obama, at least in my head as I watched: “My plan is that instead of unpatriotically borrowing money to spend on two wars, we instead invest that money here at home. Now, Governor Romney will tell you that money’s already been spent, that we’d just have to borrow even more money, adding to the federal deficit, in order to pay for my proposals. But if it’s one thing the Obamacare experience with Medicare has shown, it’s that we really can spend the same dollar twice.”

I couldn't watch much of it. What I saw was Obama spewing outrageous lies. The leftist moderator backing him up, then Romney doing a half-assed job of refuting it because he can't be too conservative (or just isn't).

My favorite Obama lie of the night. Romney's corporate income tax "cuts" would cost "$5 Trillion". Hard to understand how any tax cut could cost that much given that total annual federal tax revenue is about $2.2 Trillion. Annual corporate tax revue is $181. billion - so cutting the corporate to zero would cost $5 trillion over about 27 years. The liar's pants should have ignited at that moment.

Every number that come from Obama's lips was bullshit and I couldn't stand it more than 10 minutes.

How can it be determined that somebody "won"? Seems to me that anyone who was a Republican yesterday thinks Romney "won" and any Dem thinks Obummer "won". With that logic I could make it so that the Cowboys go 16-0 every year...

If you ask me, they both came across like mindless puppets.

Just once, it would be nice if Jim M would respond with something other than an attack.
Please Jim, this administration is the most corrupt, racist, and lawless administration in modern American history--defend evey corrupt thing it has done instead of attacking.

Zelda said...

The Democrats are all talk. They bring up these "issues" like equal pay and throw themselves around and wail hysterically over them, but they don't do anything about it at all because they simply can't. Obama doesn't even pay the women on his own staff equally, so the only conclusion you can draw is that it's a smokescreen for their incompetence.

I watched all the "debate" (these dog and poney shows are NOT actual debates)last night.
Barak Goebbles was by far the best at theatrics. Romney ran circles around the fibber-in-chief because he has facts and logic on his side.
I can't decide if I would rather see fatso Crowley turpentined or tarred and feathered.

Bram said...

What could they do to enforce equal pay? Prevent women from taking time off for children? Force them to take jobs that require extensive travel, dangerous physical jobs like Service Linemen?

It would just be more intrusive

My boss is a woman, my previous boss was a woman. I'd love some of that equal pay.
