2012 Presidential Debates

Just thought I'd start a thread. Who knows how active it will be..

I guess I'll watch, since it is the first one and since it should be important.

I won't be able to watch it tonight, but I set my DVR.

I fully expect that by the time I'm able to watch it tomorrow night, I'll be so sick of hearing about it, I'll delete it from the DVR.

I'll watch, too, at least most of it, if not all of it, depending on what's going on. As I noted elsewhere, it's mainly morbid curiosity that will make me tune in.

I'm going to bed on time. It's not that I don't care, I *do* care and I already know who/what I'm voting for.

I'm watching but I'm also doing other things at the same time. I just wonder how Romney will present himself for this fight (because it is a fight no matter what) and how Obama will present himself differently than he did four years ago. It won't affect who I vote for.

Romney moving hard to the center, at least so far.

He's doing pretty well, at least so far.

based on this first 20 minutes, Romney will be declared the winner of this debate

Economists have zero consensus on Romney's tax plan, it seems.

Romney's acting like a rude brat by repeatedly cutting off Jim Lehrer. But remember, Obama is the arrogant one!

if Romney is right, that he will bring the tax rates down, but do away with some deductions to keep the same level of revenue, then why do it?

unless he is shifting who pays that revenue

Of course he is!

It's not the trainwreck I wondered if it'd be, no, but the whole thing about people coming up to him and Ann and asking "Can you help us?" at the start of the debate-given some of Mitt's recent remarks about people in those situations it especially rang seriously hollow to me.

Plus, he's babbling over time a lot and trying to be all, "Just let me get this in" a lot and it's annoying.

Romney is not uppity, he is just being assertive, that is a leadership quality.

My thoughts exactly.

Seriously, I just can't listen to Romney act like he's all concerned about small businesses and the working people without feeling a strong urge to roll my eyes.
