I’ll watch the debate, I suppose, much like I might glance over at a bad car wreck despite telling myself not to. No matter what occurs, I’m not going to change my opinion about Obama. If the choice were to be between Obama and, say, a brain-eating zombie, I’d want to know the zombie’s prior political affiliations, naturally, but I’d probably choose the zombie even if he used to be a Democrat. The outcome of the debate DOES NOT MATTER. What does matter is the past four years of the country being systematically destroyed by Obama’s little helpers.
I’d be shocked, SHOCKED, if Obama hasn’t had the questions submitted to him ten weeks in advance and had panels of sequestered test marketers analyzing various answers written for him by his handlers for the one calculated to play best in the swing states. Hell, they’re probably on teleprompter for him.
Mitt probably isn’t going to call the press “Obama’s harem of Marxist knob gobblers” or respond to a particularly egregious untruth by saying “You lying commie bastard”. *sigh* But I can hope.
First response by Obama earned a heartfelt spontaneous “BULLSHIT” from both SwampMan and myself.
Mitt Romney’s “trickle down” government comment was good.
Obama isn’t answering the questions in his response. And you can’t legislate better schools from the fucking Federal level. NO CLUE. Training people for the jobs out there? THERE AREN’T ANY! You don’t need a lot of training for asking if you want fries with that. Oh, BULLSHIT on the biofuels by Obama. It doesn’t work, you dipshit.
Oooooh. Romney called Obama a liar twice.
Obama still hasn’t actually answered any question. And he’s lying again. Oh. And it’s still Bush’s fault. And Obama is going to copy Clinton’s approach, which was actually Gingrich’s approach.
Obama keeps bringing up what he says Romney’s program is despite what Romney has repeatedly said. Romney is not letting him get away with it. I dunno, but from here it looks like Romney is kicking his ass.
Oooh, Romney is going to cut PBS. VOTE!
Jesus F. Christ. Now Obama is saying how he’s a big spending cutter. Oh, please.
Romney grabbed Bowles-Simpson again. SWEET! If dirty looks were lethal, Romney would be a dead man. Romney is educating Obama on the economy. He doesn’t like the lesson.
Obama’s response: Oil companies are rich and eeeeeeevil and don’t need tax breaks! Overseas factories shouldn’t get tax breaks. Young people and college. Teachers having classes sitting on the floor with 10-year-old textbooks. WHATTHEFUCK? Romney is talking about jobs. Obama is talking about bullshit.
ROMNEY JUST POINTED OUT THAT OBAMA GAVE MORE TAX MONEY TO SOLYNDRA AND OTHER GREEN ENERGY FIRMS IN ONE YEAR THAN THE TAX BREAKS THAT OIL GOT IN 50 YEARS!
Obama doesn’t really know what he’s talking about, does he?
I was just saying “DAMN. Obama’s lying about what Mitt Romney just said!” and then Mitt Romney went WHACK upside Obama’s head with a large solid object and “No, that’s inaccurate.”
Now, on to health care! (They move on when Obama’s reeling against the ropes, so to speak.) Woohooo. Unelected board aka death panels. Woohoooo! Back to jobs.
Obama’s response: Ramble ramble ramble evil insurance companies. Kid on insurance plans until 26 years old which is pretty damn stupid. SwampMan’s response: Mr. President, do you have an actual answer in there somewhere? Oh, it’s Romney’s fault.
Romney’s response: Facts, figures, numbers.
Obama’s response: Ramble ramble ramble. Cleveland Clinic? What the FUCK does this have to do with Obamacare?
Obama: “The first role of the federal government is to keep people safe”. Oh, REALLY? Tell that to the dead Americans in Libya.
Obama rambled some more, told a few lies, got called on it by Romney, and sent back to school. Again.
Obama keeps repeating the same tired old lies about Romney despite being repeatedly reschooled.
Obama said that he cut taxes for families and small business. Bullshit. Bullshit. Bullshit. Now he’s all bipartisanship. Oh, and He Has a Plan. Yo, Obama, YOU HAVEN’T EVEN HAD A BUDGET SINCE HE’S BEEN ELECTED.
Oh, great, more Obama rambling about nothing.
Romney had a strong close, IMO.
You know, we’d all be drunk on our asses if we took a drink every time Romney called Obama a liar.
