Romney won the Debate, hands down!

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.

Obummer now has a worthy adversary. McCain unfortunately was not up to the challenge. Romney can and will run circles around Obama's vacant arguments.

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".

HAW! Not even ever-reliable Radical Left organs of hate and propaganda like MSNBC and CNN (among others) attempted to insult the audience's intelligence like NPR did this morning.

All Romney and this debate did was expose Obama for the empty suit he is.

Now to see if that makes a difference.

Regardless of which candidate anyone sides with... it is clear that Romney brought plenty of ammo to this gun fight and it appears that Obama didn't even have a gun! All figuratively speaking, of course.

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. 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.

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.

wait for the fact checkers, I just thought it was absurd the amount of crap he was saying that was completely different from what he has been saying. I guess it is easy to win a debate when you just make **** up as you go.

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.

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.

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 this explains why gas was $5 per gallon a few months before the election in 2008? GWB obviously wanted to make sure that mcain did not get elected, makes since.

indirecty, yes. The idiot we have now has been doing it by restricting supply in hampering drilling efforts.

Hits supply. drives prices up.

Low demand, high supply. Adverse future outlook, Lower speculation.

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...

Stupid Obama....

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.

He didnt have a canned audience in front of him or a teleprompter to tell him what to say or cheer on ANYTHING that comes out of his mouth...without that he is a empty suit.

Face it Cameltoe, your candidate got pimp slapped HARD last night. Seems like it was so hard that even you're butt-hurt now.
