2. Good! I hope he drilled the Libya response into the President's head and good

That is definitely Obama's achilles heel right now. Anything else he has the upper hand. Just needs to focus on selling himself and his accomplishments and future goals, all the while nailing Romney on his lies and flip flops.

7. Yes, good response, too

He also needs to shame Romney for making political hay out of a sensitive issue that is still being investigated and is classified.

14. Actually, no Obama is not vulnerable on Libya

After that NYT article came out saying the Libyans said the attack was in reaction to the YouTube video. Gee, imagine that: it could actually be TWO things at the same time: terrorist attack AND it was in response to the video.

Sorry, but this is the right wing grasping on a current event issue and trying to make hay about it. I just don't see this hurting the President. I read this piece, and realized the whole thing is a made up "scandal":

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/16/world/africa/election-year-stakes-overshadow-nuances-of-benghazi-investigation.html?_r=0

To Libyans who witnessed the assault and know the attackers, there is little doubt what occurred: a well-known group of local Islamist militants struck without any warning or protest, and they did it in retaliation for the video. That is what the fighters said at the time, speaking emotionally of their anger at the video without mentioning Al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden or the terrorist strikes of 11 years earlier. And it is an explanation that tracks with their history as a local militant group determined to protect Libya from Western influence.

6. Oh, and if people are really going to be ignorant enough to elect that lying weasel

I am going to have a stroke. I'm so mad and scared I haven't been sleeping or eating or doing anything else lately.

8. Same here

except for the sleeping part, where my customary mild chemicals continue to help. I am anxious. And mad. And again anxious. I was able to come home early today, but I can't watch TV yet, I'll turn it on shortly before the debate starts. I tried to eat something, but I was only able to chew on some granola (very tasty ). I hope I am overreacting, but I am awfully scared.

12. It was a good night. Now I would like to hear an apologize from Michael Moore.

The jerk was tweeting after the last debate that the President's bad performace was somehow Kerry's fault.

16. John Kerry on Morning Joe this morning:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3036789/

I like how he is looking forward to being "exorcised" of Mitt Romney from his body. Too funny!!

Oh, and at the beginning of the video, look at Romney's face where he think he really got Obama, and then got fact checked by the moderator!!! Ha, love it.

22. Thanks for posting even if it didn't feature Sen. Kerry. I had an early committment at work today.

I missed the entire show. And, this part was interesting even if it did try to marginalize te impact of Obama's debate performance.

I guess MSNBC is a bit funny to navigate. Thanks to MBS upthread for getting the right link.

17. Anybody else love Josh Marshall's take on the Libya moment?

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/2012/10/hoisted_on_their_own_petard.php?ref=fpblg

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/2012/10/just_keep_goin_buddy_dont_let_me_stop_you.php?ref=fpblg

He has also been saying what I thought after reading that NYT article from Libya upthread. That this is a completely made up scandal. By the way, there are intelligence issues to address but that has not been the main attack from the Right. Well, see what Josh says.
