Jon Stewart was spot on

For a year and a half you have inundated our emails. Your Campaign has demanded a level of urgency and passion from us.

Shouldn't your urgency and passion be on the same par as your email blasts? (Or, are you not on your email list?)

1. Oh will you Sky Fallers please stop your stupid bullshit. This was one event. Have you forgotten the

entire rest of the campaign.

4. I respect you -- but I just happen to think the exact opposite. I think what Jon

said was a very true observation.

10. I don't think it demoralizes people any more than the "stop your stupid bullshit" responses do

And that's from someone who doesn't even think the debate was that bad.

2. Jon was a bit off the money.

The president's strategy appears to be winning. You can't beat success.

11. exactly. And nothing improves when we bury our head in the sand. My biggest disappointment of

last night was learning how little the voices on the left ...all of us...all of the left blogosphere, all of the left media are listened to by the people closest to the president.

8. Stewart has a soft spot for Ron Paul.

 

Or a Hard Spot, depending on your angle.

16. I've tried to unsubscribe like 5 times

and today I just hit the spam button.

I'm fucking broke and I'll start caring about the democrats when the democrats start caring about the things I care about and the place I live.

17. Let's look at the big picture,

 

Yes, Romney was "feisty" as the media is spinning. Others among us would say acting like a rabid squirrel on meth.

Yes, he took the attack to Obama, that attack is known as lying, and Romney is being called on it today.

Meanwhile, in the real world, Nate Silver has Obama's election chances up to 86%, the highest mark yet, and an Ipsos/Reuters poll today showed only a 1% gain from this post debate bounce. Big whoop.

Frankly a lot of people looked at that debate and saw a candidate who is willing to do anything, say anything, at any time, and they simply aren't going to trust him to lead this country.

This is one debate. After one debate, Mondale looked like he could clean the floor with Reagan, after one debate, Kerry looked like a winner over Bush. Let's stop freaking after just one debate.

Does Obama need to change his approach to the next debate, certainly, and I'm sure that he and his crew are getting right on it. But that is what the first debate is for, to scout out what your opposition is going to do. Now we know, and adjustments will be made accordingly.

18. Agree with Stewart

Poor preparation, poor strategy, lack of understanding who they were debating.

Plouffe, Axelrod, and Prez, get it right next time.
