You are confusing people with the media.

When Obama is re-elected, we will revisit this conversation.
Since RP didn't make it to the stage why don't we talk about the debate?

Barry looked so bad.....I was thinking they would stage something so the Secret Service could sweep him from the podium.....then their was a loud noise back stage that both candidates stopped and looked behind them....I thought the SS were on their way in to throw Barry the life preserver.

Ok, then.

Obama is going to violate the constitution because he wants to impose his own view on the country..

Romney is going to violate the constitution because he wants to impose his own view on the country..

(at higher levels, you do need teachers with expertise and extensive training).

Teachers can inspire the kids, and I'll always love the five or ten best teachers in my life. But I spent 25 years as a student (12 yrs, 1-12, skipped K; 4 yrs undergrad physics; 9 yrs grad physics). Plenty of teachers

I can't agree more...I believe the decline in student scores in this country (in general) can be attributed to a large degree in the degradation of the nuclear family.

There is a great tendency to blame the economy, and the fact that both parents have to work. But I recall that it was my father (who worked full time), who spent nights with me at the dinner table going over my homework with me. My mother spoke very little English, so it was up to him. He could have just packed it in after 9 hours on the job and a long commute home -- but come 8 o'clock, he was my tutor.

Parents (or some surrogate thereof) should be every child's #1 hero -- and those of us who can claim that are truly blessed.

Holy crap. I just finished. Obama was absolutely schooled. If the other two can look like this, Romney can win.

I don't know. How many on this site are in the 10% of "undecideds"?

I almost had the feeling that Lehrer, while he looked partial, was secretly giving Obama "fail breaks" as if to show, even with some help he was still a fail.

Donated money, made phone calls, got friends and family to check him out, many voted for him, some probably didn't.

So more than the vast majority of all people who are going to be voting for Obama or Romney?

Obama will have a lot more "flexability" - his own choice of words to the Russians - after his re-election.

True...because most here did not initially support Romney (I'm assuming). I contributed and supported my candidate, who lost the primaries. However you are kidding yourself if you think someone other than Romney or Obama will be president. You can either pick the one that you think is the better choice or you can pick one that will lose and help the incumbent retain his power. Your choice.
