     Romney has finally abandoned the right wing extreme in favor of a more moderate approach. Will it help at this late date? I didn't see the debate last night but the MSM is declaring Romney the winner. This should put to bed the claims by the right of biased media.

    From the racist NY Times.

    President Xanax, I like that.

     

    Lost, bewildered without teleprompter...

    NYT: 'President Xanax'...

    Slips, says he wants to 'make sure that ... everybody's getting a fair share'...

    Romney won hands down last night and the President had nothing. Romney explained his 5 point plan. What don't people understand. Lowering tax rates and more people in the work force = more revenue.

    If Romney can keep this up and Obama can't explain his record than it's over.

    He was successful individually

    He was successful in the private sector

    He was successful with the Olympics

    He was successful in Massachusetts (87%) Democrat

    Now if elected he will be successful as President

    That is very likeable.

    What is so hard to understand.

    In response to DirtyWaterLover's comment:

    He said that the tax cuts would be paid for by increased revenue related to a growing economy, but means the existing deficit would stay the same

    Right. It basically only works if the economy not only recovers but goes into massive expansion. Insantly.


    Which won't happen.


    Obama also missed an opportunity to point out that Mitt's "shift it to the states" argument means only one of two things:

    - Each state raises state taxes by the amount federal taxes are cut, doing nothing for the taxpayer.


    - States do not raise taxes and simply say screw 'em, as to whoever benefits from what was cut from the federal budget.

    [/QUOTE]
     States would still get federal money just not federal control over thier citizens. The obama plan is good in Mass but, not all 49 others states!!

    It's why we have what the foiunding fathers knew was best; a Republic of States and not a federalist one size fits all type govt!

    Romney hit this one out of the park and he'll get a debate bump, it is now game on for the White House. Romney was a man on fire; a master with his facts, confident with every answer, even masterful with a little humor but also firmly ans strong in going after Obama



    Good lord. Wipe your nose off Mr. "moderate". ROFL. Couldnt' get it any further up there. 

    Romney was certainly energetic but he was completely full of it. Absolutely zero detail. His excuse for not having detail? Reagan.

     [/QUOTE]


     Romney answered with the best answer "The Presidents job is to set a course and then go to congress and lead to find compromise and unity toward solutions" (not verbatim)

    He should have finished that with "you went and took your plan, rejected ideas from across the isle without even debate and shoved it down the American peoples throat because you had a super majority; that is not leading nor bringing a country together"!

    ONLY an certified IDIOT thinks a presidential debate is the time and place for detail




     

    Oh I know. It's for vapid nothings that please the likes of you. Detail would hurt your fragile little mind.

     

    Unfortunately, without detail, one cannot begin to assess whether each candidate's policies will do anything, or what they might do.
     

    Without detail, it's two buffoons trying to throw more America-loving buzzwords than the other. And the certified IDIOTS cheer on, starting endless threads about who they thought won this utterly irrelevant ideology-slinging contest.

     

    Sad day for American politics. They both suck(ed)

    Nice attempt at *ahem* leveling the results, but, it was a battle of visions.  Romney pushed his, Obama crouched in fear that his would be exposed.

    Some good comments on these boards, though few from the usual denizen snipers.

    More voices on these threads = an improvement

     

    P.S.  In terms of winning the 'debate', there's no doubt that Romney pitched a solid game and came out on top, and he should now reap the spoils. 

    Five weeks to go, and we finally have a race....

    Agreed. Obama performed poorly, but did not make a fatal gaffe. The campaign is re-set, and the pressure is on both candidates.

    The poor mainstream media will have to poll with a +20 Dem oversample to claim the race is over.

    If the debates are run honestly and real issue/competency/candidate contrast questions are asked. Obama has NO chance in the debates!

    Romney clearly did a good job.    I'm not voting for him, but I was happy for him because it's been painful for the past few months watching him tank his own campaign.  

    Maybe I wear rose colored glasses, but Obama did fine.  Not great, but fine.   Obama has a record of 4-years he can't possibly hide, and his supporters are willing to give him 4 more years, debate points scored or lost.

    Romney got a boost, no doubt about it.    But did he get any of the 47% on his side?  :)

    When Romney said he would "cross the aisle" that was the one place I thought Obama had a hard time not laughing out loud; he exercised restraint.  :)

    The families congregating after the debate was a nice human touch, albeit a photo-op.   

    Romney came out of the gate very gracefully when he congratulated the President on his anniversary and made the joke about spending a romantic evening with him -- that was the first time I've ever heard Romney make a joke that was actually funny.  

    Rejoice Romney supporters; heating up the race is a very good thing.   

    "Beware the fury of a patient man."   Obama is not done.
