    You know - BLAME BUSH.

    One thing that stuck out to me is that Romney very effectively showed that he has a great record and that Obama has a failed record. There's just no denying that and he made Obama look like "the amateur" he is. So, will he have to go back to blaming Bush? He really didn't a whole lot of that during the first debate.

    Will that work? We know that libs rely on it on message boards. Will that even work with the average American? I don't think so; but one has to wonder if he's so desperate that he will attempt to do it.

    My fav was when he told how he took suggestions from Republicans.


    "The top congressional leaders from both parties gathered at the White House for a working discussion over the shape and size of President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus plan. The meeting was designed to promote bipartisanship.

    But Obama showed that in an ideological debate, he’s not averse to using a jab.

    Challenged by one Republican senator over the contents of the package, the new president, according to participants, replied: “I won.”

    His big boost was when he had Bill Clinton speak for him at the convention, he didn't seem to do all that well when he had no coaches or popular Presidential speakers on his side. Obama says Mitt has no detailed plans on these tax cuts, however where are HIS detailed plans to get America working? Simply education? Invest in clean energy? (we tried that) Roads and bridges? (tried that too). He hasn't shown that he can work with Republicans, he chose unemployment extensions over a pipeline (Is that what he truly believes the American people trying desperately to find work ..... prefers?)

    Obama the (illegitimate) president and Obama the campaigner have two very different messages. I believe that alone is a reason to withhold a vote from him. I hope Americans are realizing that. Meanwhile, we saw a Romney who has a track record of working with both parties to get things done (a fact which scares me; but a fact nonetheless).

    Will it work as far as your guy getting Democrats to vote for him? No.

    Undecideds aren't really undecided at this point. You're fooling yourself if you think this display was a game changer.

    You guys realize Obama is still kicking Romney's butt, right?

    No matter. If you cling to your delusions, it's your party's funeral. Why should we interfere?
