    .. and only one for the VP candidates..

    I really think this sucks, I believe the American people deserve to know more on the views of these candidates...

    A full test of their mettal before the American people..

    (Personally, I believe Obama is to much of a coward to submit to the test and Democrats/liberal media will provide Obama with excuses)

    Does there really need to be more?

    How many?

    I think 3 is a fairly good number actually. Maybe MORE than Obama would want even. Romney debates better on multiple attempts.

    Definitely more than Obama wants..especially if it's not a liberal shill announcer..

    I'd say a minimum of 5 with balanced questioning would shut me up.:lol:

    Id say it would take more than that to shut you up...but as funny as I think it is it might be seen as an insult...so Ill just keep it to myself.


    Oh wait!


    Nah 5 is too many. The American People wont watch five. They most likely wont watch three. Theyll watch one and then let FoxNEws or MSNBC tell them who won it.

    I no longer even see the point of debates. Primaries yeah, but not the general. We know the differences already. If we dont, well we shouldnt be voting then. Its just guys saying what theyve said on the campaign trail. We have Youtube now. Its not like these things are Lincoln-Douglas. Theyre all show to see who can get the best jab in off the cuff or who is rolling their eyes too much while the moron speaks.

    Intriguing.. sheesh, I hate to miss a good/funny insult...

    Well, you follow politics, many don't and the debates may be their only involvement but alas, they still legally vote.

    Sure there is the talking heads handicapping from their political perspective but that's good for the laughs at least.:dunno:

    I think 5 would be too many as well, while hopefully people will be clued to their TV sets for the 3. I think its true that many have already made up their minds, but I am sure it will be very interesting to watch.

    How long does each debate last? If it is an hour and a half, I think 3 is enough.

    Can't wait to see the Veep debate, :badgrin: regardless of whom Romney selects, which I am rooting for Paul Ryan, as of this post.

    As evidenced by many on this board, following politics does not necessarily mean one has the intelligence to understand politics and they can still legally vote. ( Something I aklways believed in but this forum has really made me start to question...sigh )

    Well..it's either 5 or I keep bitching....:lol:

    Like you say, " while hopefully people will be clued to their TV sets for the 3"

    the odds aren't good on that... soooo 5 makes for better opportunity for the voters.

    It's about the voters after all...
