1. Wow, I thought there would be a few votes for Tie...

...I hope you are all right.

Btw, Jon Stewart just reminded me, President Obama is going to be on The Daily Show w/Jon Stewart on Thursday night Oct 18, 2012.

3. It was really pretty pointless.

Almost all of the talking from both of them came in the form of rehearsed, vague, jingo-istic answers.

It sort of bothered me that almost none of the questions were ever answered, but the questions were mostly really terrible anyway.

There were points where Obama could have nailed Romney, but he didn't, either because he isn't quick-witted enough (I really don't think he's good at debating) or because he was just so adamant about delivering those canned responses. However, in some cases, the strongest attacks the president could have made would have also been attacks against all of the very wealthy, including many of his donors - the pessimist in me is afraid that was a factor.

Sure, Obama won on truth-telling, and of course I think his policies are better, but I don't know what purpose that 90 minutes really served. It was a lot like sitting down to watch 90 minutes of campaign commercials.

These debates need real questions and real moderation.

4. I pretty much feel the same way...

...but I just feel so dead inside, politically, after 4 years of the Rethugs fighting President Obama on everything he's done or tried to do to improve our current situation, that I just have no energy to express that feeling anymore.

5. I'm glad someone else feels the same way.

I've never been super crazy about Obama particularly (or almost any politician for that matter - not singling him out), but I just hate the Republicans so much at this point, I really want to see him win - I mean, I REALLY want him to win.

I'm not going to hope and pray for him to enact or even suggest policies that I would personally love, but I just wish he'd at least be more concrete about the good stuff he has done and less vague about what he plans to do.
