Better than Big Bird and Binders full of Women.... it's horses and bayonets.



ANd yeah, if you were drinking every time Romney agreed with Obama tonight, you'd be on the way to the hospital.

So if I vote for Obama again, and the economy still stinks in 4 years, will it still be Bush's fault?

What a closing statement by Romney!!

In the War Room of Obama 2012 Senior strategists David Plouffe and David Axelrod are each inserting a key into a metal box labeled "October Surprise" and preparing to punch in the launch codes on the order of the president.

Opportunity? The opportunity for women to use coat-hangers, again to self-abort when they are no longer able to choose WHEN or IF to have child/chidren either by NO Doctors able to help them decide one of the MOST major decisions of their lives, or even no contraception available to them. What kind of opportunity is that, Indy?

The opportunity for younger/young people to have their social security monies which is an insurance program for all not an "entitlement" be put onThe Wall St roulette table, just like those lost lost their savings and retirement monies under mortgage securities bundling of good with toxic assets and getting them more & more intertwined with other bundling near the end of Pres W Bush's administration?


Liberty? The liberty of certain white people to continue to be able to act on their views that people of color, women and people of any color to act on their views, lesbians, gays, bisexiuals or transgender people are dsomehow still 2nds or third-class citizens of the USA- and deny them jobs or housing. And even under the wrong place at the wrong time beat up or murdered?

The kind economic prosperity where the rich still get richer at the expense of everybody else because many of them refuse to give a little more. And then whine when they are now asked to go from 36% back to 39% in income tax -- which we were under Clinton administration wherewe grew jobs, and got a surplus in the budget not the deficeit Pres Bush ran up.

Imagine if we went back to the around 50% tax rate under JFK or about 90% under Eisnerhower... the howling and cursing that would go on.
Well those years the 50', 60s even part of the 70's we had a great big thriving middle class. aThe things started to change for the worse under Reagan Adiministration with trikle-down BS.

So WHO'S Opportunity, Liberty and Economic gains are we talking about here, INDY..... the continued mostly White, Male and Rich only ?


or a more level playing field still not completely there yetn hewre in the USA.

so are you upset that all of American foreign policy is essentially Obama's foreign policy now that Mitt has not just agreed with and applauded every single area of discussion tonight, but also totally reversed his previous positions essentially calling the GOP base fools and idiots who he pandered to in order to get the nomination? or does the rank cynicism and opportunism and reliance upon your microsecond attention span somewhere, deep down inside, bother you? how does it make you feel knowing that Mitt thinks you're wrong?

also, the right wing blogs are complaining about the questions, the moderators, and saying that Mitt "sure looked presidential out there."

all of which means Obama decisively won.

I think Obama had more zingers. If that's winning, then he won.

I don't believe he did anything to make Romney look significantly weaker, so I wouldn't call it decisive.

We'll see where the polls go.

Romney spent most of his time rehashing his points about the economy from the first two debates as opposed to actually talking all that much about foreign policy.

I'm asking you as a voter.

Who would you rather have dealing with the next foreign policy crisis?
