And on the economy, what is Obama's plan? I heard him try and defend the last four years, you want four more years of the same?
Romney got spanked like a little boy being taught a lesson.
LOL You keep telling yourself that if it helps. Not only did Obama have to hide behinds Hillary Clinton's skirts by letting her take responsibility for Libya, he had to hide behind Candy Crowely's considerable bulk in the debate. Candy may have let him get by with his lies last night during the debate, but the truth is getting out today.

Candy -- your new avatar looks too much like Sarah Silverman to be taken seriously.. Just sayin'......

Anyways --- Something odd happened last night.. I actually started cheering for Obama for about 15 seconds. It was when he started leveling with the American people about ".... many of those jobs are not coming back".. And when they do "... manufacturing will need NEW technologies and less lower skilled workers"... For about 12 seconds --- he was telling the most important economic story of the election concerning jobs --- WITHOUT all the phoney hype and numbers..

But then -- my elation turned to outright jeers as he launched into how the "rich need to pay more so "WE" can educate the engineers required to do that".. And how GOVT needs to develop all of those spiffy new 21st Century manufacturing ideas.. NO -- Mr Dear Leader.. YOU supply the truth and the direction and WE WILL provide the resources and manpower without lawyers and politicians standing in the way. This dude has the childish opinion that we are all waiting on govt dweebs to invent and develop every tool required to accomplish the goals..

Also -- BOTH of them blew the question about "lowering my gas prices".. It's NOT ALL about drilling and leases, and extraction.. The gasoline price problem is LARGELY REFINING --- not drilling and extraction. And NEITHER of them was familiar enough with energy issues to point out that we have not built a REFINERY in this country for over 25 years, can't UPGRADE refineries without onerous permitting, and have 40 different govt mandated "SEASONAL BLENDS" that screw up pricing and distribution.. I wouldn't trust EITHER of these men to DICTATE an "energy policy"... Refining also BOOSTS our exportables and increases jobs.. It's NOT as simple as the cost of crude...


Also dissapointed that NEITHER actually points out that America IS ALREADY "energy independent" for it's electricity generation.. And they (especially Obama) conflate wind/solar/electricity with transportation.. When we haven't establish a WILLINGNESS to double the production and distribution of electricity to support such a policy.. Wind/Solar today have NOTHING to do with driving. And probably won't in the future either since it's likely that we will have electric cars alright --- but they will be fueled by hydrogen or nat gas via fuel cells.. Not charged directly off the grid..

That is just too freaking funny, thanks for the laugh.

Would you explain if you can how I'm blaming others for MY faults by pointing out that Obama let Hillary take responsibility for Benghazi and allowed Candy Crowely to try to pull his fat out of the fire on his portrayal of Benghazi as a spontaneous protest? By the way.. How is it that when Obama told Crowley to "check the transcript", she just happened to have it right in front of her? Can you answer both of my questions or do we get more meaningless drivel from you?

I think Obama's plan last night was to make some passionate statements that he can use in his campaign ads. Romney has been using some from the last debate and I think Obama just needed some lines for his ads.

Obama was more aggressive, but his record still speaks for itself no matter how he tries to spin it. He's still trying to make the same promises as last time and the way he carries on, you'd think he was running for the first time if you didn't know better.

Even if Obama was as good as his supporters think, it's still too little too late. We don't need any more promises or bold statements. He has had 4 years to show us something and prove he is more than talk. He hasn't done that. What he has done is turn allies into radical Muslim countries and facilitated the ruin of the economy so he can rebuild it with a socialist one. The far left sees that as a plus, but not most Americans. The question I have is this; has Obama intentionally hurt us or is he that lame when it comes to fixing things? If he truly believes in our constitution and wants us to have jobs and a strong economy, he is a miserable failure. If, as I suspect, he is the leader of those socialists and Marxists that filled the stadium for the DNC convention, then he may be a huge success. All depends on what it is he is really trying to do.

I want all radicals to fail. If they succeed, our country fails. I know some want the kind of change that the far left has to offer, but there is no question that it is un-American. I say that because it's not what most Americans want and it certainly isn't how our country, the best country ever, was designed.

Who needs blame.

Romney's headed into a tough job come next January, cleaning up after Obama's mess.

It's not going to be fun for him.

Obama can settle into a job in Chicago....maybe work at the morgue.

In his own mind...that is correct.
