No question about it, Romney dominated the debate. Obama's performance was so bad even Chris Matthews could not defend Obama. Chris Matthews freaked out! This might take Romney's campaign in a whole new direction!

Yes he did. Mitt is a smart business guy and the Pres is a community organizer and needed notes and or a teleprompter. Obama is all show and no go. The winds of real change need to come and reality is now here. Obama's best friend the teleprompter just didn't show up for his performance......can't wait to see Biden get crushed by another intelligent guy named Ryan.

So you are waiting for the fact checkers but you already say he is making crap up? I guess you also subscribe to Pelosi wanting to pass O care so she'll know what is in it? Maybe you should think for yourself instead of waiting for those fact checkers? BTW, the lib pundits were also saying O did a not so great job last night.

All Mittens has to do is continually run a loop of all the campaign promises O made in 08 (otherwise known as lies) and he could work a lot less.

Yes, Romney thoroughly thrashed Barack Obama in the debate.

But ever the loyal Team Obama player, National Public Radio this morning declared that the winner of last night's debate is "the candidate you're most likely to favor".

Unfortunately that is partially true. I would estimate +/- 80% of voters have made up their minds on who they want.

While Romney probably isn't the one I would support in a primary (I thought they all sucked) I think he is smart enough to make this into a real race.

All presidents - and politicians in general - are to a certain extent. They all listen to advisors. That is what scares me most about Obama - the people who are pulling his strings.

One good thing on GWB was I felt like he surrounded himself with very smart people.

Unfortunately that is partially true. (NPR's assertion about the opinion on the debate winner)

In a close debate NPR would have a point, but as the debate progressed Obama's body language provided ample evidence he was totally outclassed.

In the last thirty minutes Obama tried to hide his anger and frustration behind his rehearsed smile, but the muscles that bulged at the back of his jaw betrayed his true emotions. His gaze was continually downcast and he appeared to be an errant child in the midst of a well-earned reproach who resented having to suffer the punishment.

Obama's visuals were more telling than his halting, rambling answers to questions and except for NPR no other network dared carrying Obama's water last night. The Radical Left is in total panic this morning, but it's really no surprise that the Myth the Obama Media created years ago crumbled once all of America had the chance to see how ordinary he really is without his prepared scripts and twin teleprompters.

One commentator last night encapsulated Obama's performance as president and why he performed so poorly last night. To paraphrase, "Anyone can be an actor, anyone can play a part." Without his script and props Barack Obama is exposed as merely an actor, not a president. And his anger at being exposed as such for ninety minutes spoke for itself.

As happy as I am at the outcome, I think there was room for improvement. I'll give Romney a B. Obama, a D. If he had been on his game ie better versed on his lies and rhetoric, this wouldn't have been so clear cut. My wife watched the debates with me, and though she clearly doesn't like the typical Repub stance on abortion and gay marriage, even she was finding lies and contradictions coming from Obama. I think it's true, if the Repubs left those 2 topics alone, they'd have a lot more people like my wife supporting them.

Camelotkid,
Pull your head out of the sand and look at the real BHO.
Having no foreign policies AND hindering domestic drilling AND blocking the Keystone pipeline all have a negative affect on gas pricing.
Then factor in the Stazi like EPA AND crushing debt due to his "drug addict" like spending AND you have the dollar in a free fall on the world market once again negatively affecting oil prices.

The Dems need to face the facts, Obama has a very negative record as president with very few flattering talking points.
Without using demagoguery the Democrats can only use their tried and failed platform of fear and blame.
Lets hope that Mitt doesn't back off or start using Biden's speech writers.

Actually the President can influence pricing by
- prohibiting or allowing drilling
- prohibit or allowing new refinery construction
- -- Hint: EPA heavily involved in that decision
- determining if/when to release strategic reserves
- setting EPA mpg guidelines
- prohibit or allowing new pipelines
- middle-east foreign policies
- economic policies that are killing the dollar
- -- Hint: weak dollar = more expensive imports
- killing the coal industry (an alternate fuel source)

If you don't realize these basic facts, then you're not even worth the time and effort it takes to respond to your drivel.

So if gas companys know people are dependent on gas to go places, and they know that people will still buy gas at the current price, even if they increased supply what incentive would they have to then lower the price? seems like even with increased production of oil the only thing that would happen is higher profits for oil companies not relief for people who can't afford gas.

So if gas companys know people are dependent on gas to go places, and they know that people will still buy gas at the current price, even if they increased supply what incentive would they have to then lower the price?

Buildup of inventories. They have only so much storage space for a momentum driven process production. If prices are too high and product sales slow, they drop prices.

It's called market forces. Supply and demand. A basic fact of market economies.

Only thing I had against Romney. When bongo started snarking about "big oil", Romney should have explained that big oil isn't the cigar chomping billionaire you see in the monopoly game, wallowing in rooms filled with cash like he's scrooge mcduck or something, but that oil companies are publicly held, stock issuing entities that pay dividends to the guy on the street who probably has Exxon stock or Chevron stock in IRA or 401k.

WE are big oil. Anyone ever look in their retirement mutual fund to see what the holdings are?

That's right, YOU are big oil. A little chunk at a time. Them billions are paid out in dimes by the share to a lot of little people on main street.

When Obama ran against McCain, his campaign was filled with idealistic platitudes of Hope and Change. Those slogans were appealing to many people after 8 years of Bush.

Those slogans don't fit so good now.

Jimmy Carter got elected in 76 because of the same thing. People were tired of Nixon and Watergate. Carter won because he ran against Nixon not Ford.

Just like Carter, Obama isn't a very good president. Ideology doesn't create jobs. Ideology doesn't manage crisis, or bring down the debt. All the empathy in the world for the little guy doesn't do them any good if they can't find a job. Coupled with Obamacare which is Obama trying to create a legacy, his tenure at president has been all about ideology and not about performance.

If people were working, they wouldn't care as much about healthcare or the government taking care of them. That's what we saw when Reagan was elected. People railed against Reagan as a statist, "just an actor", a fuddling old man. Yet, he brought the country back from the brink. Yes he grew government, and spent a lot of money but people didn't care because it was boom times. Reagan knew how things works. He was a good leader and he knew how to get things done.

Romney is same way. He knows how to run things and get things done. Yeah, he is not as conservative as some people wish he was. He is a neo-con in others eyes. The thing is that he knows how things works. He knows how to get things done.

For you third party guys. I feel your pain, I lean libertarian myself. The problem is that a third party candidate is never going to be elected President until they build a base in local, state and federal office. There is just not enough base to support them yet. Build a local and state base of support and then go after bigger and bigger offices. I will be working on that after I am done working on Romney's campaign.

Interestingly enough, most of the people I've met in the campaign, particularly the young ones are libertarians. They are tired of the move to the left by the Republican party. In the mean time, we need to slow the fall and the only one who can do that is Romney at this point.

Ehhhh I'm no longer interested in debating economic realities with people who have no interest in the topic. When Bush was in all the Libtards harped on was how Bush was helping his buds in the oil business with high gas prices.

Payback is hell.

Of course Obama is responsible for high gas prices. He's president. He's responsible for everything! Jeesh... Everyone knows that...

It's only the fence sitters that are going to be swayed by charisma and debate performance.

The people with a grasp of politics know that this election is between a businessman and a socialist. They know that this election will determine the future of the country because whoever is president in January will be the one to shape the supreme court for the next quarter century or more.
