2012 Presidential Debate 1

I’m sure you’re all looking forward to this with the same breathless anticipation I am.  Stop holding your breath, you’ll turn blue and pass out.  What about…

The Hypnotoad

"Television is a vast wasteland"

Jon hosts Rand Paul, Stephen has Kenny Rogers.  More programming at Zap2it.

I’m thinking Red Sox/Yankees last day of the season pre-play-off Baseball followed by How Booze Built America, so we can certainly chat about that.  Of course if you want to talk politics I’ll ask you to step to the back of the bar and try not to disturb the other customers.

This is a respectable joint.

Oh, so you want to talk politics.

Romney is done and has been since April or May.  Perhaps we have finally reached the nadir (that’s a terribly bad pun) of what the Republican Party can offer, remember the reason he’s the nominee is that like John Kerry he has “electability”.

History is not kind to Massachusetts candidates.

For more effective evil you have the ‘Hey, we’re not as crazy as those guys’ Party who proudly parade around as if their ‘D’ Belly hides the fact that they are just as corrupt only sneakier.

    of this debate.

    What I did catch was that Romney was, in essence, continually “talking down” to Pres. Obama — wonder if anyone else noted that as well.

    Romney made all kinds of promises as to what he would do in relation to so many issues, but not one explanation as to how he would do it!  He continually berated Obama for that which he had not done, particularly, in the economic scene, glossing over all the obstruction Obama has faced with respect to his efforts to continually improve the economic prospects.  Romney came up with a “lotta’ stuff he hadn’t heretofore mentioned” re healthcare and a sundry of issues, taxes, etc., with unrealistic solutions or such offered.

    The bottom line is:  Are any of us the wiser for having heard/seen these debates?  

  69. tahoebasha3

    include my views on so many issues, wars of aggression, torture, human rights issues, whistleblower protection and so much more, much of which I do question Obama’s position.  But I’m also aware of the MIC’s influence and power in matters military.  I have great problems with drones, judgemental killings and so much more!  Who IN THE HELL are we to judge the destiny of SO MANY in this world?

  70. ek hornbeck

    Am I any wiser?  No.

  71. ek hornbeck

    it’s ok to like Obama if you do around here, no need to apologize.

  72. tahoebasha3

    It’s not a matter of liking Obama so much, as it is how I would feel about anyone’s like behavior in such circumstances.  

    Romney was a pompous lying dogmatic asshole, Obama was lackluster and seemed weak (all the way around) . . . maybe, it was simply a ploy or such.  Romney did a good job of exposing himself and his blatant lies.

    But, more on target as to what I meant was Romney’s attack on Obama for not having created more jobs in the last four years and improving the economy.  That was the part that blew me away.  When Bush was in office, jobs were being lost at around 200,000 a month continuously throughout his tenure and more.  Congress fought every effort of Obama’s ideas to create more growth in jobs and otherwise and blocked him.  And Romney has the gall to accuse him of failing on jobs and the economy?

    It’s really not about liking Obama or not, it’s the continual effort to avoid or circumvent the calculated and devastating damage the Bush Adm. caused this country in just about every arena imaginable and, instead, just lay it all on Obama.    

  73. tahoebasha3

    I think he may not have been feeling well . . . he didn’t look too well and this a.m. heard him speaking from Colorado, a bit on the radio and I heard what seemed like a cold in his voice.  Not trying to make excuses for his performance, but I do think he was not feeling real well.  (O.K., this is the femme part of me . . . . don’t chastise me!)
