Do you want to get trashed? Drink every time you hear any politician spewing bullshit. You'll be shitfaced drunk within the first 15 mins.

We all know Obama is going to walk all over Romney, he has the public speaking skills.

I thought I heard a statistic that non incumbents have a tendancy to win the first debate.

Maybe it was not a statistic, but you probably know where I am going with this.

they poll less people to say Obama is going to win the presidency...you only need to poll so many people to get within a 3% margin of error.

also, everyone else in the world is saying the same thing about romney "winning" the debate.

Again public reaction reminds me of Idiocracy.

The argument lacking facts, rational thought, or connection to the issue wins.

Not sure if true, but it sure did seem like that. So cute how they had their families come up at the end.

Gary Johnson, the libertarian candidate obviously not invited.


Obama clearly won (I do not like either of them).

I must say I thought this debate was much better than the usual fodder. There really is a stark difference in philosophy, policy and direction this time around -- much more so than at any time I can remember (I wasn't alive in 1860).

I thought the opposite. I don't know what the record for lies per minute at a presidential debate was, but both these guys destroyed it.

Also made me lol this morning:

Debates used to actually be debates and not a "who can say the most thigns to offend the least amount of people" race.

watch some VP debates with George Bush Senior and before, it all went downhill from there.

And it should be that way: they are worrying about their familes, they are worrying about their job, they are worrying about their neighborhood, they got a lot of others things on their plate than to understand facts, rational thought, or connection to the issue.


This post is very clever, unfortunately, no one will understand its true value.
