He did do that, but he also interrupted the moderator constantly too. That's why some people are saying Mitt thought Mitt was the moderator.

At least he wasn't sighing like Al Gore, or eye rolling, etc. Smirking, yes. And he did make a point of wishing the Obamas a happy anniversary. He actually seemed like a kinder, gentler Mitt than you see on the campaign trail. I don't think the VP debate will be kind and gentle.

I'm ecstatic for the VP debate. Not because I like or support Biden and certainly not that misogynistic psychopath Ryan, but because of the guaranteed bloodshed. It's going to be at least 20 times more interesting than what we saw last night.

Speaking of, here's Biden's take on what happened:

Quote:

“I thought the president did well,” Biden said. “He was presidential. I think that you just never know what game, what position Gov. Romney’s going to come with. I mean, you know, the centerpiece of their economic policy so far has been their tax cut, and last night we found out he doesn’t have a $5 trillion tax cut, and I guess he outsourced that to China or something. I don’t know if that’s offshored. … But it’s hard to figure out what Gov. Romney’s position is on a number of issues.

“But I think as time goes on, meaning days, it’s going to become pretty clear that Gov. Romney has either changed a number of his positions or didn’t remember some of his positions,” Biden said. “And I think at the end of the day, we have two more debates coming up, the president does, and I feel really good about it.”
lol Biden is such an asshole.

Obama should stay with the commercials in the battle ground states,

If Obama brings it up in the next debate Romney will be able to kill it, and Obama commercial's won't have any currency
I dunno, he might've been, or he might have stammered again like he did many times, too. I agree ultimately the commercials are pretty powerful on their own, but it still would've been interesting to see Romney try to explain or defend away those statements in the debate regardless.

Agreed on that, definitely. I want to hear Ryan try and talk about "complicated math" again.

Ok, I'll start with the question from the moderator, you, or anyone else, answer for Obama and I''ll answer for Romney

Question to you Mr President: "What do you think is the role of the President in helping Americans that may have fallen on hard times?"

Those who dare not to be intelligent become politicians.

I don't buy that for one second.

There are a LOT of average schmos out there, especially in my parents generation and beyond, who still think debates matter.

They also vote. A lot.

And in the states that will decide this election, all it takes is a 3-5% swing in one direction or the other to decide who wins.

he really wanted to do this with a t v audience of 65 million people last night

Romney on 47% comments: I was ‘completely wrong’ – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

Obama was smart enough not to give him the platform.

It is an uphill battle, but I am sure over the next week,

numbers will trend Romney's way,


and with how the votes are counted, and if some votes are counted in a few key states is the most important thing.
Polls show Romney making headway in swing states - The Hill's Ballot Box

Show me something other than Rasmussen, and I'll believe that Romney is making big gains.

Biden may fuck up at times, but he also has genuine heart, and connects with mddle & working class people.

I was somewhat diappointed that Pres Obama didn't use the 47% line, mention that the 718 million from medicare that Romney keeps lying about was related to damn i'm tired and can't remember it completely...it's tied up with waste & fraud he elimated plus something to do with Medicare Advantage which was a way to snooker people into yet another insurance money pocket-lining program.

At least I heard him say how people had gotten checks back from insurance companies who spent more than ?20% on overhead or something....the idea there being that Medicare has a lower overhead costs...and companies should get closer to tsat.


as for 2 other topics people have mentioned here...

1) This Weds morning I heardon my local Public Radio's local programming... ..where in a lot of people called up to say why they were still undecideded!

2)This evening abunch of peole called up on a more liberalish radio talker's show and many of them felt Pres Obama acted dignified as a Pres should, let Romney spout off (maybe with enough lies to "hang" himself with) and use -as someone mentioned here- ads & surroagets speak for him.

His campaign adviser (? David Axelrod) also said "changes would be made" . And the next day Obama painted Romney as "who was that man showing up and pretending to" be Romney..... because of all the 180° turns he made.
