    Yeah, that would be cool. But, the Obama supporters don't want to go any nearer to Obama's record than Obama does.

    I didn't see the debates but I have been reading the reviews. Ironically all my liberal friends are very, very quiet this morning. It's rather pleasant!

    wrong I saw it at the pump, the only reason it dropped so low was from it being so high and everyone not being able to buy it. It only lasted for a week but yes it was $5.00 per gallon.

    Doesn't it make sense that prices were so low because the markets were in the tank and everyone was losing their homes and jobs?

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

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

    Hits supply. drives prices up.

    Buildup of inventories. They have only so much storage space for a momentum driven process production. If prices are too high and product sales slow, they drop prices.

    It's called market forces. Supply and demand. A basic fact of market economies.

    Only thing I had against Romney. When bongo started snarking about "big oil", Romney should have explained that big oil isn't the cigar chomping billionaire you see in the monopoly game, wallowing in rooms filled with cash like he's scrooge mcduck or something, but that oil companies are publicly held, stock issuing entities that pay dividends to the guy on the street who probably has Exxon stock or Chevron stock in IRA or 401k.

    WE are big oil. Anyone ever look in their retirement mutual fund to see what the holdings are?

    That's right, YOU are big oil. A little chunk at a time. Them billions are paid out in dimes by the share to a lot of little people on main street.

    When Obama ran against McCain, his campaign was filled with idealistic platitudes of Hope and Change. Those slogans were appealing to many people after 8 years of Bush.

    Those slogans don't fit so good now.

    Jimmy Carter got elected in 76 because of the same thing. People were tired of Nixon and Watergate. Carter won because he ran against Nixon not Ford.

    Just like Carter, Obama isn't a very good president. Ideology doesn't create jobs. Ideology doesn't manage crisis, or bring down the debt. All the empathy in the world for the little guy doesn't do them any good if they can't find a job. Coupled with Obamacare which is Obama trying to create a legacy, his tenure at president has been all about ideology and not about performance.

    If people were working, they wouldn't care as much about healthcare or the government taking care of them. That's what we saw when Reagan was elected. People railed against Reagan as a statist, "just an actor", a fuddling old man. Yet, he brought the country back from the brink. Yes he grew government, and spent a lot of money but people didn't care because it was boom times. Reagan knew how things works. He was a good leader and he knew how to get things done.

    Romney is same way. He knows how to run things and get things done. Yeah, he is not as conservative as some people wish he was. He is a neo-con in others eyes. The thing is that he knows how things works. He knows how to get things done.

    For you third party guys. I feel your pain, I lean libertarian myself. The problem is that a third party candidate is never going to be elected President until they build a base in local, state and federal office. There is just not enough base to support them yet. Build a local and state base of support and then go after bigger and bigger offices. I will be working on that after I am done working on Romney's campaign.

    Interestingly enough, most of the people I've met in the campaign, particularly the young ones are libertarians. They are tired of the move to the left by the Republican party. In the mean time, we need to slow the fall and the only one who can do that is Romney at this point.

    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....

    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.

    No doubt about it, even for a neutral, outside observer (like me), Romney was the absolute masterdebater....

    Even overheard some stereotypical Obama voters this morning talking about Romney winning the debate. I was pretty surprised at that. Not that it will change their vote.

    Sucks that the debate questions are picked. Wish it was an open floor. Questions like border security, etc. No it is VERBOTEN. Anyway, the next Presidential debates are on the 16th and 22nd. Cannot wait for the VP one.

    Especially after today, when Biden blurted out that he and Obama want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars.

    Even Whoopi and Joy were very subdued on The View. I watch it occasionally with my wife, but can only take so much of those 2. I watched it today just to see their reaction. If they couldn't find anything good about Obama's performance you know it was bad. They didn't have much to say at all about their president and they are usually drooling all over about him. The best Joy could come up with is that this is only the first round.

    I'm confused how did he win the debate when he was dodging questions and not being specific about his answers he just made himself look rude and had something to hide if you ask me. He couldn't explain himself FYI what he does in Massachusetts doesn't mean that it'll work for the other 49 states. Hahaha in Massachusetts in Massachusetts in Massachusetts that's all I got from him.

    It's only the fence sitters that are going to be swayed by charisma and debate performance.

    The people with a grasp of politics know that this election is between a businessman and a socialist. They know that this election will determine the future of the country because whoever is president in January will be the one to shape the supreme court for the next quarter century or more.
