I'd love to hear Romney close tonight with:"Ladies and Gentlemen, America, thank you for the opportunity to speak with you tonight. You have heard two vastly different approaches to regaining prosperity in this great nation, I hope you will consider the facts, and conclude that my vision is the path we need to take. Should you give me the honor of being your President for the next four years, I can promise one additional thing, I will NOT spend the next four years blaming the the guy before me. Thank you, God bless you and yours...goodnight.
Okay LDotters, depending on you guys to tell me how it's going. The truth is, I cannot bear to lay my eyes on the Empty Chair. I was born and raised in NJ and now am stuck in DE, haven't I suffered enough?!
I can't bear to watch...Obama turns my stomach. Convinced he's been fed the questions ahead of time, and praying that Romney makes mincemeat of him, but know the MSM is going to declare an Obama victory, regardless. Depending on my fellow Ldotters to keep me up to speed.
Yes, thank you to the wonderful Ldot site for this thread. And for the unbelievable effort required to present and administer this site. The debate threads are better than the debates. There are many really smart people who post on this site. Being it on posters!
Wonder how many voters realized Romney is slightly taller than zero...didn't hurt that one of the nets showed the full blown presidential looking Romney motorcade...small things, but rain drops make the storm...Romney of to a good start, good modulation...
Romney gave an excellent answer. Trickle down government !! Great line. Obama looks more nervous than Romney and he is over rehearsed , vomiting out a jumble of statistics and programs that don't answer the questions.
I am seeing the difference between wise business experience and one who is talking the points given to him by a staff. I see someone who has worked at business and one who has no personal experience running a business.
Maybe I'm too cynical and am just expecting to be led down a primrose path...but it just seems that Romney is trouncing BO time after time...and BO is gettin testy, bitchy, snarky...all the traits that everyone LOVES so much about him. Go Mitt Go!
Dear Lord, thank you for my many blessings. Please bless Romney tonight. Please give him your guidance and inspiration. Please allow him to talk clearly and directly to the world and show how hussein's policies are destroying America, killing innocents, encouraging dependence and terrorists, punishing hard work and success, and moving us closer to Sodom. Please open the eyes of the liberals so that they see hussein is bad for the world. And, please forgive me for my sins. Amen.
BIG Holy Spirit- led, unified prayer meeting today. We were hooked into a nationwide teleconference call from Ft. Worth, TX. We are believing God to anoint ears of all hearers - that they hear and understand THE TRUTH No matter what is spoken. Prayer is working. O is rattled and rambling. Mitt, continue to stay in charge.
Mitt is doing great. Obama keeps repeating the same lies even after Romney told him that he has never said that. I love the way Romney did a couple of "There you go again" type responses!! No, Obama is not winning unless you believe someone who keeps repeating lies over and over again even after he has been corrected several times. Thanks for the thread, Ms. Lucianne!!

On Sunday night, I wrote a short post soliciting stories from my readers about how Obamacare has already immediately impacted their lives. I asked that all of these emails be directed to ObamacareMakesMeSick@Yahoo.com. I expected a response; I didn’t expect it to be quite so overwhelming. Over the last 24 hours, my inbox has been flooded with hundreds of emails. What you’ll read in this post represents a portion of them. I’m only one guy (with a fulltime job and twins) — I wasn’t able to go through every single message just yet. Some, I left out because the information
The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood. The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August. According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV´s, provided
Details buried in the United Nations report on the Syrian chemical weapons attack point directly at elite military formations loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, some of the strongest findings to date that suggest the government gassed its own people. A weapons inspector collecting samples near Damascus. The inspectors, instructed to investigate the attack but not to assign blame, nonetheless listed the precise compass directions of flight for two rocket strikes that appeared to lead back toward the government’s elite redoubt in Damascus, Mount Qasioun, which overlooks and protects neighborhoods and Mr. Assad’s presidential palace and where his Republican Guard and the army’s
UNITED NATIONS – U.N. inspectors said Monday there was "clear and convincing evidence" that chemical weapons were used on a relatively large scale in an attack last month in Syria that killed hundreds of people.They said positive blood and urine specimens provided definitive evidence of exposure to the nerve agent sarin by a large proportion of the survivors assessed by investigators. These results were corroborated by clinical assessments, which documented symptoms and signs consistent with nerve agent exposure.The inspectors in a report said "the environmental, chemical and medical samples we have collected provide clear and convincing evidence that surface-to-surface rockets
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
