  • Hmmm…

    There certainly is a lot of news we don’t get from our media…

  • In the first place we have to understand that these are not Debates. They are simultaneous press conferences.  And the so called moderators have always sucked, always want to be part of the news themselves.

  • You shallow, sterile, neaderthal, angry, inbred Goebbels-like righties. Of course Obama is going to display the wonder, intellect, and charisma that is Obama. He thinks like me, and that’s obviously the right way to think, and it’s completely appropriate that the media moderates do their hosannas when the debate is over.

    And since you guys insult me all the time and won’t go back and forth a thousand times with me handwaving aside your so-called arguments, I’m probably going to stop reading and commenting here. Stop laughing! I might do it! So don’t start up with how many times I’ve threatened to do it or even said definitely I was going to do it, but didn’t. This time I’m serious. I really might, maybe, possibly do it.

    And oh, how you’ll miss my rich, creamy analysis when I’m gone. You will be reading a boring, shallow, sterile post here and thinking “I wish Ott would come back and give us some rich, creamy analysis. I miss him so, so much.”

    Of course, I’ll be over at my own blog, which has much better discussion than here (stop laughing!) and I won’t miss you. At all. Because I don’t either need to come here and comment so that I can talk down to you and boost my own self-worth to cover up the fact that I’m a failed academic at a mediocre moose college in Outer Farmville, Maine. I can stop coming here any time I want. And I’m going to stop. Really. Stop laughing, I said!

      An obvious location for a minor riff on ample bosoms of our favorite snow billy.

  • I see foreign policy figured prominently in that topic list.

  • I love the 50 years of breaks for green energy and he doesn’t pick winners and losers, he picks losers. Best so far.

  • Obama just said “budgets matter”. Good time to ask why he hasn’t had one in three years . . .

  • So, intrade still has Obama at 67%, but here is my question…would anyone hedge a donation using intrade?
    Say I give a thousand bucks to Romney, but I also buy $1,000 on Obama so that if Obama wins I break even. Sure, if Romney wins, I lose money, but I am happy that my guy won anyways.
    Does this make any sense?

    • Intrade is international.  And despite being a bad ally and leader, Europeans are still in love with the idea of Obama.  They weren’t afraid to mention Bush by name when the US did something they didn’t like.  With Obama, they say the US or US government and don’t get specific.  I think its obvious why much of the middle east loves Obama.  Asia probably goes by CNN.

      Then add the ability for people to flood Intrade with money to rig the number.  That indirect campaign financing Soros and friends can do.

  • He looked like he wanted to cry! :-)

  • Obama was quite right that Romney was promising to keep the “good parts” of Obamacare and Dodd-Frank and just get rid of the rest.
    The fact that Romney counts coverage for pre-existing conditions as one of the good parts tells you all you need to know about him…..
