Best because it works very well both ways.

You must have misunderstood me. Editing your posts to try and get a leg up is like saying "No, I didn't say that, I said this other thing that makes my position stronger."

Good lord :roll:

I'll spell it out for you:

It said politician because I wrote Republi-can which the board filters to politician. What's so hard to understand about that?

You're obviously the one who didn't know, because you assumed I did write politician at first and even complained I 'edited' it to Republi-can spelled wromngley :lol:

I learned that back in my first week here. Okay, I missed your remark, but that just goes to show that we're all idiots.

It's a wierd thing, not quite bipolar, but I do have a very multi-faceted personality. But you know damn well what I mean.

It wasn't that good of a debate. Romney kept pulling numbers out of his ass and Obama couldn't produce a cohesive response. This debate was simultaneously the most and least important one. The economy is the most important issue in this election, but neither candidate can propose a better plan. I'll call this one a draw.

Am I the only person that was surprised that Obama didn't do any 47% comments? He could've easily pushed Romney on the defensive. My guess is that he's saving it for the debate on social issues, but I don't see why. There is no way Romney can beat him in that one.

I also look forward to the vice-presidential clown show.

Yeah this is my ultimate response, and why I straight stopped watching it. Ultimately, it's all talk. Whatever either candidate says is a) going to be vague enough to draw as many of the undecided voters as possible and b) a fucking lie. Neither of them has any clear points, and all of the "hard facts" were completely made up, especially when they were both claiming the other would tax the middle class harder. I guess most of the internet says that Romney "won" the debate, but that's certainly not what I saw. To me, it looked more like he was flailing around trying to grab any shreds of credibility that he could.

I'm not surprised at all that barrack didn't mention the 47% thing - it's the easy move and he honestly doesn't even have to say a thing for everyone in the room to already know about it.

And the whole fucking thing's a clown show.

I stopped watching after 15 minutes.

6. Its just another part of the beauty contest.
7. Its not even really a debate.
8. Winner? If guys are discussing their policy and how they differ, how could there be a winner? Unless its a popularity contest and not about policy.
9. The media needs winners and losers so they have something to talk about.
10. R-Money could "win" every "debate", but that wouldn't make his policies any better.

That debate was almost unwatchable. I get the feeling that Obama knew that the debates are Romney's last chance to catch up, and so he wanted to make it as boring as possible so that no one would watch.
