You missed a good one, Bob! Faux News is crying, this morning, because of moderator favoritism. Crowley did a good job attempting to keep moving from topic to topic and allowing as many questions from the audience as possible. Romney always wants the last word. He looked frustrated, tired, and about as “un-presidential” as I’ve seen him. The President did come to the event much better prepared for “fisticuffs” than he did for the first debate.
The first debate saw Romney run away with the post-debate polls. Last night’s event has it a much more even scoring, giving the President a slight win.
If undecideds were leaning towards Obama, but the first event had them second-guessing that choice, last night’s performance will move them back to that camp. If the undecideds were leaning towards Romney, and had moved even further in that direction after the first debate, they may be swallowing hard this morning.
i’m not surprised candy delivered the goods. glad i passed. i expected the president to do better. just showing up this time would have been a victory for him, i suppose. thankfully, this will soon be over one way or the other, and we’ll know then how far left the country has moved politically.
Welcome, Jerry!! Please be cautious about hurting Bob’s feelings. He’s and old man, see. Feeble, aged too soon by years of hard work… slaving behind a desk. :>)
I caught tidbits from Beck, Limbaugh, Huckabee, and Faux this morning. These folks are really upset. They were fine with Leher refraining from keeping Romney to a time limit during the first debate. Yet, they’ve really hammered the next two moderators who have been diligent in keeping the discussion moving from topic to topic. Guess your opinon of the moderator depends on whether or not you feel your candidate was successful in the event.
i really can’t believe people are seriously arguing about this point at this late hour.
Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said Sunday that last week’s deadly attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya was a spontaneous reaction to an Internet video offensive to Muslims and not a premeditated response to U.S. foreign policy in the Arab world.
So the Washington Times is believable even when they don’t print what Rice said:
On September 16, Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said, “We do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned.”
That is definitely not: “... that last week’s deadly attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya was a spontaneous reaction to an Internet video offensive to Muslims and not a premeditated response to U.S. foreign policy in the Arab world.”
Instead they print what they wanted to hear. As somebody once said “Facts matter”.
Oh and by the way, Mitt brought up his version last night (over a month after the incident and Fox continues to harp on this everyday nonstop). But, since you didn’t watch the debate I guess you missed it.
i listened at the time. she said it was the result of the video. obama said it time after time as well. as did his press secretary. they should simply say they were wrong and move on. voters are not fools.
Mitt Romney has taken a six-point lead over President Obama in the latest Gallup national tracking poll — his biggest lead to date and the first time he has led outside the margin of error.
The latest seven-day tracking poll of likely voters shows Romney at 51 percent and Obama at 45 percent, up from 50-46 on Tuesday and 49-47 on Monday.
