TIME’s politics team brings you up-to-the-minute Twitter commentary and coverage throughout the Hempstead, New York debate.
As I predicted: if Obama even showed-up with half a fight, Romney would make his own gaffes just from hubris.
Romney just undid himself really.
New,different performance for Obama(Why twitter had delete my refugee direct message to Obama,UN,others- As my documents at: www.helmyelsaid.blogspot.com)
CNN just liveblogged that their insta poll gave the debate to Obama, 46 to 39 and right away declared the meme of the night; basically a draw for the horse race.
Rightie spinners is predictably making this all about Libya. Ignoring everything before and after the event. It must be pretty damning for Romney that an entire debate is boiled down to a talking point where righties are using a tragedy to make political hay.
This election is going to be about the economy and jobs, that's why GOP won in 2010. And they're trying to obfuscate it but I'm pretty sure people are focused on their wallet.
And Romney did a TERRIBLE job giving us a clear vision for the economy going forward. Most of it was anti-Obama.
I thought Romney was fantastic, btw. Unlike Obama who much of the time sounded like the Charlie Brown teacher when he spoke. "Waa Waa Waaaaa Waa."
And btw, I voted for him.
Fantastic how? When he failed to provide any details of his tax plan and shifted the topic from Assault Guns to Marriage. Or how he said he is all in favor of equal rights for women and wants to make sure they have plenty of time to go home and cook dinner?
Kudos to the Twitter guys! TOTALLY entertaining and witty during the debate. I toggled back and forth between here and debate. Also seemed straight down the middle!
"Obama is a huge bore." Now there's a great GOP attack line. Just make sure that whoever says it has the proper up-turned nose angle, and is either wearing a monocle or holding opera glasses. I envision Mittens saying it while riding Rafalca inside of his in-home car elevator. The proles will eat it up!
I don't look for the president for entertainment and comedy.
I don't grade presidents on how much they bore me; only if they do right by all citizens.
Maybe you like Romneys flip flopping clown act of no ideas and blame Obama, personally I find that nonsensical.
First Big Bird, now binders full of women. Keep it up, Mitt.
Have you seen this? http://bindersfullofwomen.tumb...
Subbing for sacred, tonight (since he appears to be AWOL), I'd agree that, Yes, "Binders full of Women" are no big deal. And, once you take the staples out of their navels, they're much easier to...review...
I worked 4-12 and it turned into working 4-4. I work 4-4 again tomorrow. It's 4:20 am and I just got home.
Geez, kbang. sacred is working.
a) don't you have any respect
b) don't you memorize what he says
c) if you are going to sub for him, you'll have to step up your game.
Although the staples in navels wasn't bad for a start!
