Optics matter.
The fact that Romney didn't need to constantly refer to his notes to keep his statements in line was a telling visual as well. Romney looked like the professor who knows the material cold, while Obama came off as a grad student trying to work his way through his first teaching class.

This one was a massacre.

They both suck, it all sucks. I weep for what was once the Republic.

Of course, I will hold my nose and vote for Romney. He will manage the decay better.
Amen Rabbi!

Optics matter.
Appearances matter too.
Liberals are fuming over Obama's pathetic performance.
Now on MSNBC Reverend. (not so) Sharpton is calling for Mittens to be prosecuted for perjury.

Fox had the split screen thing going... barry looked off as far as his general demeanor. In fact, his face tonight continually looked uncannily similar to the expression he displayed when he spoke to "joe the plumber" for the very first.

I agree. Both seemed more center than normal, without having any huge disagreements/arguments.

In spite of the high fiving *we* have going on now because of Romney's performance, yes, that is true, it was a shockingly centrist debate on both parties. The both came to the middle.

It makes sense as they are both looking for the undecided middle. They were not pandering to the base. Although, I think it is important that they do, because they still need to get the base to the polls.

I doubt even the CNN / MSNBC journolists will have the nerve to claim Obama cam up on top.

I wish I knew you in person. I'd love to bet you money on that.

Everyone I know in person loves to talk the big talk, but when they say Romney is going to win, I tell them "Let's put 200$ on it..." then all of a sudden they aren't so confident and start to him haw.

I figure, if a clown for a president is going to win, I might as well make some money off it.

Meh... send me a pm and stop trying to draw attention to yourself. Wow rabbi, there is someone on an internet thread that an insecure narcissist like you don't care for. Oh yeah... that's worth hijacking a thread over.

Not. Take it to pm or drop it.

50%-60% of the voters vote on appearances, not issues. It was important that Romney not appear to be beating up on Obama.

Folks here underestimate Romney.

You simply dont live in reality. You drop the "it only matters who is counting the ballots..." in the thread and accuse me of being the hijacker?

You are a buffoon of the highest order but I bet the view from your planet is awesome.

No, voting and choice of vote are paramount to the freedoms in this country. One could argue the bankers of old created the two party political system, this is a matter of debated opinion, but most assuredly it is a hands down fact that wall street and bankers take huge advantage of the two party system.

Simply put, if sheeple didn't allow there only being two, "mainstream" political parties in this country, and did so with their votes, we might have had a chance to fix what ails this country.

+100.
Romney was presidential and in control of the debate without looking mean and aggressive.
Obama looked like a kid caught stealing who is looking at his shoes. Even when he was talking all I was really hearing him say was "it's not my fault, I didn't do it"
