He really said he would cut funding to Sesame Street?

Romney reminds me of a slick used car salesman. Obama put on a poor debate performance.

Lets see how they do on social and foreign policy issues first before crowning a winner.

Sesame Street (the only thing worth a carp on PBS as far as I know) rakes in enough money to build Big Bird a nest that would dwarf the Beijing "Bird's Nest" and keep Snufalufagus in peanuts for the rest of his live, not to mention buy Elmo a Ducati tricycle. They may have to cut back their charity work a little bit but believe me they will survive.

You priced anything Elmo lately?

<<< Just gave them $115 for tickets to "Sesame Street Live."

Very clever of Romney to say that as he neutralized Jim Lehrer, the moderator; no way Lehrer could sneak in biased questions after that.

Lehrer knows Romney’s view on cutting taxpayer’s money for PBS.

Lehrer had a conflict of interest and had no business moderating the debate.

Agreed - they should IMO cut down their chartiable giving some and become self-sufficient (if they aren't already).

I would bet they would still be "in the black" and could continue their (very worthwhile BTW) chartiable giving.

They could probably just buy PBS and run Sesame Street 24/7.

If they would switch the ticket around w/ Ryan for Pres and Romney for VP I could stomach voting for them.

I have much more respect for ryan than Romney when it comes to record / politics.

It's good thing they were not playing golf last night! Mitt probably does not get in as many rounds as the President. I like a guy that smiles vs. a guy that looks worried. I'd rather buy a Used Car from Mitt than a proped up new Govt Motors model from the Pres.

Honestly, if your credit cards are maxed out and you have to choose between food and a continuing piano lessons what do you do?

I don't know that PBS would be the first thing I'd cut but, you know, if it's federal funding that could otherwise be spent elsewhere then you do what you have to do.

Aside from the fact that the money would probably just be flushed down the toilet somewhere else I don't think this is so bad. If we shouldn't cut that then we shouldn't cut anything deemed wholesome or "for the children."

Big challenge Romney has is that a tough message is always harder to bring than a mana-from-heaven message.

It's amazing how many people are grousing about Mitt's plastic smile. It's a simple debate tactic. Smile and don't let things bother you.

I think you're right, Obama did look concerned a few times and really stuck to his canned talk track. Best part was when Mitt said, referring to a tax cut for offshoring jobs, "I've been in business for 25 years and have no idea what you're talking about."

Who knows? Maybe a chance yet if Obama louses up the next two.

So If Romney mumbled and bumbled you would cheer he bombed. Your man was trounced because he has a radioactive record. Nothing could save him.

Trew2life – I will save you carpal tunnel syndrome from typing.

You are on a gun forum. Do you think we have bad memory? Are we stupid?

With 300 million people, once in a while a crazy person shoots some people.

We are sad but then count how many minutes it takes for a shrill Democrat to shout “BAN GUNS NOW!”

The Democrats putrefied their brand.

Sure, let's cut funding to PBS. They're a profitable non-profit organization. What makes our publiclly elected officials think we should invest in our own public access? It's public for pete sake. Too many liberals.

I work in TV......PBS is not public access. I produce programming and I can not access PBS with out spending $$$$$.....that's a fact. I also worked production for ABC and our local PBS could never float without being constantly bailed out by the Fed and wealthy liberals.

It didn't change the Obama true believers. The NYT site is a hoot with readers coming up with every reason under the sun why Obama should have been declared the winner.

The debates on social issues and foreign policy are yet to come.

I listen to NPR and like some of it. They do use the words “Social Justice” a lot and that alarms me.

Our tax dollars should not fund an organization that pushes the radical policy of social justice.

Obama's record on both of those is crap. .

Social Issues. . A new health care system (with new taxes) that 65+% of the country didn't want

A failed (and expensive) "green" policy

Foreign policy. . Umm . . look at the middle-east. . . Russia. . .

The EU is about to collapse, yet under Obama the US has guaranteed Billions in funding for the EU. . . (good money after bad)
