The man (0dumbo) is a f'n liar, federal support for education! I thought that was what my local taxes (that are strangling me)are for, who knew. At this moment jug ears is filibustering on education, and lying.
I haven't been able to access the site for an hour! Bummer. Romney is doing very well. 0bama looks like a rambling fool. The contrast between the two is very stark. I think Lehrer is doing a pretty good job, surprisingly.
Is it just me or does Jim seem to be feeding Obama reminders of what to say? Obama seems to be saying "Ah" a lot. It seems to be that O is spending a great deal of money in my state, Washington, to raise their basis' energy for him. I love that Mitt keeps being a fact checker.
Wow, it took a couple of hours to get on tonight. Gremlins I guess. But just wanted to check in and say, it was awesome. Dear Leader didn't seem to know what was going on. And Mitt, well he was Presidential!
and there's the Rev. Al Dullton, putting in his two cents on MSNBC . . .
and Bill Kristol, who adored and promoted John McCain, who made an Obama presidency possible
I thought Mitt Romney did a great job - Lehrer tried to make Mr. Romney pay for Obama going into overtime but he just charged ahead - it was mortifying to see Lehrer flummoxed by Obama but I think he was finally somewhat exasperated by Obama . . . as if he could almost say, "I am trying to help you out here, Mr. President, but you're not cooperating."
I couldn't get on lucianne all nite long. There must be a lot of others out there like me... High 5s everyone! Mitt absolutely wiped the floor w Obama! The best comment I've heard? The MEDIA is responsible for Obama's terrible performance---bc they have not done their job for the past 4 yrs. They've never asked questions. He's been so coddled by them that his inexperience at answering questions could just do him in. Bwaa haha
Great performance by Romney. The wheels have come off of Obie's propaganda machine. Romney now needs to keep poking the prod in a little deeper at a time and contine exposing Obie for what he is. Obie was clearly intimidated by Romney's command of the facts and Romney's overwhelming self-confidence and Romney's obvious air of already acting presidential.
It's late but I couldn't go to sleep until after one more try to get on this site. I understand those who couldn't listen to obie's voice but you missed a treat. I usually mute him too, but I decided to listen tonight and I'm glad I did. Obey got spanked! Ole Mitt is in it to win it, boy! This was the best debate in a long time. I was my own Brit Hume with running commentary throughout the whole debate. Obit was rambling, incoherent, off topic, and clearly agitated. When Romney was giving it to him, he was looking at the moderator and the look on his face was screaming, "Help, me, Jim. Make him stop." it was hilarious.
Mitt Trickle down government You've obviously studied the specifics of what I would do, so obviously I've laid out some specifics. He took obit to school, but I think he flunked the exam. Cool move going last in the closing remarks. He put the last nails in obit's coffin. Mitt had a lot of family join him on stage. Obit just had Arms. They had to join Mitt's crew to keep from looking pitiful. Mitt ignored the interruptions of the moderator and wouldn't let him get him sidetracked. The Dems seemed to scatter like roaches once the debate was over.
I enjoyed the entire debate and after its close I watched a little coverage on fox news. They semed to be dampening my enthusiasm for Mitt's performance so on a lark I looked up which channel carries msnbc and tuned in to their coverage. Well, let me tell you, my spirits began to soar. I personally don't go in for too much schadenfreude but I had to make an exception for tonight. I lit my post debate celebratory cigar and puffed like a champ!!!
Mrs FF and I switched to NBC from Fox after the debate ended. There was a sense of defeat and shock. Andrea the hag tried to change the mood with her Truth Squad nonsense. I don't think anyone cared what she spouted off about. Next thing I know, we're off to local news.
Bottom line - no one could hide the fact that the emperor had no clothes.
couldn't bear to watch as I can't stomach the sound of O's voice. Watched tweets and facebook posts. Interesting to see that even though all the pundits are grudgingly admitting Romney mopped the floor with O that those who were already deep in the tank are STILL deep in the tank for Obama and claiming that Romney did nothing but lie.
My take: The ones who were already going to vote for Romney are still going to vote for him, the ones who were already going to vote for Obama are still going to vote for him. But Romney picked up some of the undecideds tonight.
By the way, Intrade Obama plunged on Intrade and Las Vegas is betting on Romney.
The last time I checked, Jesus is not on the 2012 presidential ballot. Therefore, I have to vote for which of the two existing candidates, I believe better reflects biblical values. Keep in mind that a president is not in power to promote theology. That is what pastors and theologians are for. Rather, a president is elected to politically and economically govern our country. Therefore, I pick a president not based on his personal theology but rather upon his philosophy of government. When you compare Romney's philosophy of government to Obama's philosophy of government, which philosophy better mirrors biblical values? This is a question that all Christians need to ask in this upcoming election. For me, the answer is a no-brainer. Romney's philosophy of government, while not perfect, is much closer to Scripture than Obama's. By Dr. Andy Woods
Yes, I loved that comment about "you're not entitled to your own facts." Ha ha! Don't get mad at me, but I thought Romney was a little Reaganesque in his responses. I just recently watched the old 1984 debate and I had the same feeling watching this one. Let's keep up the prayers!
Oh, and yes, the only thing Obama could do is repeat the same lies over and over even after he was corrected 5 times he still would say the same lies. Does he really believe that tactic will always work? Go Mitt!
One last thing...the leftist media is trying to spin it back into Obie's favor by repeating his comments about the lack of specifics. I just hope more people watched the actual debate than just listen to the comments afterwards by the leftist propagandists.
i watched the whole thing on c-span WITH my democrat husband who was SILENT through the whole thing. i was too but only because i didn't need to say one word. ROMNEY CLEANED PRES. OBAMA'S CLOCK!!! okay. now, remember, the dems are tricky. maybe pres. obama did this bad bad act on purpose and will be brilliant, awesome and assertive in the next debate. a possibility (he can't be worse, can he?). thing that really surprised me is that romney is so obviously incredibly smart (a dual law degree and mba from harvard that he EARNED proves that) and well mannered and cheerful and not the least bit intimidated. he has a lot of class and pres. obama looked like a curmudgeon. yeah. a curmudgeon. it was just great!!!!

I'm late to the party too, it took all night to get back on the site. First the NY Yankees won, then Mitt stole the show! I am so pumped I can't sleep. I was also absolutely thrilled with the Frank Luntz group, I think Mitt won over alot of undecided voters tonight.
The Guardian gives it to Mitt but finds him not likable. American on the other hand likes winners.
Romney flummoxed the unprepared media idol, did he? As I expected but was still wondering if I would be wrong. Going wobbly? But Mitt wasn't.
Was obama stunned or over medicated? The pathological liar needs fawning, constant approbation so he can believe his own lies IMO.
I am also stunned in having read headlines that some leftist pundits had been less than praising o. Meanwhile will the conservative pundits praise Romney, finally, or keep hedging their bets to be on the criticizing band wagon in case he loses? They have many suggestions on how he can do and say things their way. Now he has won markedly, will they have more critique than praise? They aren't dumb old republicans you know, they are conservatives. Win, win critics.
Tried getting on for about an hour. Then went to my ''history'' and clicked on a Lucianne thread. That got me in, went to home page and began reading all the wonderful comments. Right off the bat Obama's anniversary comment didn't go over well, too sweet and sickly - so obviously rehearsed. However Mitt's response was quick and cute. Seven Hundred and Sixteen, not going to forget that number in a hurry. Mitt was fantastic. He was the Chairman in the Board Room, so used to speaking with business leaders. No notes, just plain knowledge. That's who I want as my next President. Mitt handled Obama and Lehrer perfectly. And he will deal with world leaders perfectly. He was happy to be there and deal with the business, the debate, at hand.
There was a very telling moment. Leherer let zero get away w/something and zero gave him a big, sheepish grin and blinked his eyes (need descriptor here) twice. Looked like a little kid who had been offered ice cream. Really strange, and probably a subconscious strategu zero has been using, sort of "What a cute little boy you are." Really very strange. I don't know if anyone else saw it. Would love to hear O'Reilly's maven Tanya analyze this.
Gotta say I enjoyed watching President Romney spank that little boy tonight.
Several days ago, a very dear friend of mine predicted something close to tonight's result. He said:
"Relax, my dear friends. All hell is about to break loose! Romney will come off the Wednesday night debate like a fully-armed F-18 off a carrier's catapult. He will thoroughly embarrass the Kenyan in front of the eyes and ears of the nation...without being filtered and contaminated by the media."
There are two reasons to claim Romney won tonight: the real reason, as expressed in this thread. And the media's reason, which is to build Romney up in order to tear him down later.
First, the real reason. He won because he marshalled the truth. That takes two parts. The truth must be your friend, and you must know how to wield it in combat. Done, and done.
The fake reason, the media's reason, that Romney won: Obama wasn't aggressive enough. Obama was too passive. Not enough 'zingers'. You'd better believe that narrative will change in the second debate. And you'd better believe those who judge these things on matters other than an affinity for truthfulness, i.e 'the Mainstream Media', will be tripping over themselves to declare the 'new' , 'fired-up' and aggesively mendacious Obama the victor in future rounds. For those of you who will be unable to see future debates, worry not about missing anything, you've just been saved the trouble.
The key is, Romney should feel pleased with his performance because he had truth on his side and he expressed it well in a neutral venue. That won't hold next time and the media will almost undoubtedly spin a win for the incumbent.
Governor, don't overheed the counsel of either the naysayers or the sycophants. Trust the truth, defend it forcefully, and let the spinners be damned.
It's been obvious for more than four years that Zero was woefully unqualified to be president, is lazy and uninterested in actually doing the job of president, and has failed at it. (The only thing he enjoys and is good at is community organizing.... er, make that campaigning.... in a controlled environment.) So we should not be surprised that he was also woefully unprepared for this debate after four years of goofing off on the job.
To clarify, by saying Romney will not have a neutral venue next time, I meant that future moderators will have gotten the overarching order: 'Don't be like Lehrer and let the candidates speak, rather YOU control the flow of the narrative. If you like your job, that is.'
Did anyone besides me notice that toward the end, when Lehrer the shill emphasized "You two have a TOTAL of three minutes," O not only hogged the whole three minutes but went way over, without protest from his shill?
Be that as it may... I said to my husband on the way to work this morning, "Well, I know which of those two I would rather see at the diplomacy table speaking to a terrorist leader!"
We Coloradans are laughing our you-know-whats off at Joey B's claim that "it was the altitude"... O and his entourage have been burdening Colorado with their presence for the last several months so much that we've been wishing he'd leave us the heck ALONE!
Not to mention that Aspen, where they hang out so much on their innumerable vacations, is at nearly twice Denver's altitude. Maybe it was the LOWER altitude that was giving him the bends.

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
(Article leads with chart) A Gallup poll conducted last month provides a powerful tribute to the wonders of Fox News. Gallup posed a wide-open question to more than 2,000 adults across the country: “Thinking about various sources of news available today, what would you say is your main source of news about current events in the U.S. and around the world?”The winner was “television” as a basket category, at 26 percent. The “Internet” took second place with 18 percent. And then came Fox News, at 8 percent.
“If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.” -Mark Twain - It’s become clear to us that Ambassador Stevens was someone who cared deeply about his work to promote American diplomacy in Libya. He was one of four heroes who perished on September 11th, 2012 in the Benghazi attack.Stevens’ diary has never been made public, until now. It was first discovered and reported on, in brief, by CNN, but the news network soon caved in to outside pressure, most likely from President Obama’s staff, and ceased reporting on it all together.
Reacting to the news that the administration’s National Security Agency has been collecting the phone records of every American customer of at least one telephone service provider, the New York Times minced no words in a scathing editorial criticizing the practice and the lack of forthrightness from the White House. “The administration has now lost all credibility,” the Times editorial read. “Mr. Obama is proving the truism that the executive will use any power it is given and very likely abuse it.”
Credible sources indicate that the president of the United States watched in real time what might well be called the Benghazi snuff film.Among those sources is retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer. At the time of the assault, Shaffer relates, two U.S. drones were hovering to the consulate and recorded the final hours of the attack, which killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other brave Americans (From LCom Archive originally published November ´12)
The murderer is the new celebrity. He emerges out of nowhere with a rags to mass murder story, and is swiftly accorded all the trappings of fame. Reporters track down anyone who knew him to learn about his childhood and his main influences. Relatives and friends both contribute fuzzy anecdotes, mostly indistinguishable from the ones they would present if he were competing on American Idol or running for president.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
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
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
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
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people. Sir Brian said: “Given the tragic events this
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is sending out letters telling gun owners to turn over their rifles and shotguns — or else face the consequences. New York City’s ban on rifles and shotguns that hold more than five rounds is now being enforced, according to a letter the NYPD is sending out to targeted city gun owners. “It appears you are in possession of a rifle and/or Shotgun (listed below) that has an ammunition feeding device capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition.
