You're too old for that Tom.
No, if anything, I'm too young. Those pics were taken before I was born.
And by the way.............
That was a boring debate. I don't care who won, it put me to sleep.
I'm not sure if one actually wins a debate like the one tonight. It's more of a "you think this" then a "no I don't" kind of thing. Regardless of points made or policy ideas, Romney finally looked strong.
YEah Romney definitely won but it was all just the same ol left right rhetoric boring as shit
I don't think Romney won so much as he didn't lose. I expect that approximately 0 votes were swayed tonight.
Romney had a bigger hole to dig out of entering this debate, and the last month of campaigning. I don't see any blue states becoming red states because of this, nor do I think this will affect undecided voters a great deal. The base is proclaiming "victory," and rightfully so, but I still see Obama winning the election.
Plus, they didn't even touch on social issues. Those issues seem to be the things that endear Obama and the Democratic party the most with moderates and undecided voters.
I thought this debate was stupid from the very first lines from the moderator. The premise was: I will ask you what you think your opponent's positions are. How about something that makes way more sense and is more productive, like "what is your position?"
If anybody gained anything from these debates, it was Romney. But what he gained, exactly, was probably just more confidence from his party. He appeared strong, charismatic, and intelligent tonight. Obama was constantly defending himself, and he didn't defend himself particularly well. It was especially disappointing, because there are so many ways to attack Romney.
I hope Obama will wake up in the next debates. He shouldn't just coast into the presidency, even if it is quite assured. I understand that it's hard for him to speak about economics with an air of pride, despite that he inherited a shitty economy, as opposed to have created it. And from what I've read, it looks as though Obama has helped things improve a little since when Bush saw everything tank. He didn't touch on that as much as I would have liked, but again, I guess it's still tough to spin the positive of putting out a few fires when a bunch of things are still burning. What shouldn't be tough for Obama are the social issues, and if he doesn't expose Romney for the backwards Mr. Monopoly man that he is, I'll be very disappointed.
It's fun to see two men pretend like things they do will change things.
Clean coal? hmmmm....
It's absurd. I thought the debate was pretty even, with Obama coming out ahead on the facts. I don't want to see an automaton up there repeating "47%" over and over. Couldn't believe it when every single major network presented it as a blowout. I guess I'm out of touch.
Obama came across as a very busy man who was being forced to take time out of his very important schedule to explain what it is he does to people he has no respect for.
obama also didn't do a good job of talking about his accomplishments. he seemed to get a bit flustered talking about the affordable care act. i still don't understand romney's healthcare plan. if you leave it to the states, how are pre-existing conditions covered by his "plan"?!? and why can't romney or ryan effectively explain their tax plan?
and that moderator was shit. he had zero ability to cut off romney or keep the conversation within the allotted time frames.
He seemed like a man disenchanted by the lack of enthusiasm from his own base
