15. I agree with him

I have the debate playing in the next room, and the President sounds sluggish and hesitant (and a little bit wonky). Romney sounds animated and confident.

That being said, people watching the debate say he looks a little psychotic. So let's most most people are watching and not listening.

19. What the hell is a 'concern troll'?

Is this the term to put down DUers who are blogging the debate and are commenting on how Pres. Obama and Rmoney are doing?

33. I have been here for years. I am no troll, and I love Obama but...

...this debate is not going the way I hoped. Obama could be doing much better.

I am just honest and objective. You can support all of the President's ideas and still thinking Obama is looking down too much, stumbling more than Romney, and seems kind of worn down.

His ideas are all great. It is his delivery ... and the truth is, that's what shallow independents look at in these debates.

He is also being too polite. He should be tearing Romney a new one, and he is holding back.

This is how he would handle intense crisis..jumps in without thinking things through

And you probably don't even deserve it. At least according to 47% Rmoney.

17. It sounds like you're not listening too well.

RMoney sounds frantic, spitting, nervously hyper, and like a piglet who wants to hog all the time.

Obama sounds .... sane.

Unless you think the lunatics should run the asylum, I dunno where you get the "ass kicking" model.

28. My FB News Feed seems to agree

and I've got all my conservative friends (meaning, family) blocked. Mitt's lying like a mofo but is, nevertheless, controlling the tempo of the debate.

Hopefully an electromagnetic pulse will disrupt Romney's circuitboard.

38. It's simple

I hate Rmoney and I hate Republicans like a Baptist hates fun but he's glib and speaks with passion while Obama's his usual stumbling, uming and ahing self. He does great when he's reading a speech he had time to mull over and write but he's never good on his feet.

I felt the same way in 2008. In his favor, McCain was even worse. Palin scared the shit out of me because she was a vapid, empty-headed bimbo but she could deliver those idiotic lines like a champ. When I saw her debut I feared we'd just seen the next Reagan. Fortunately, she became self-parody and only effective with the die-hard believers. She has no crossover appeal, not like Reagan, thank Cthulhu.

Nobody is fact-checking in this debate so if you don't already know, all you have to go on is delivery. Rmoney's spanking Obama.

There's plenty of opportunities to kick Rmoney's fucking teeth down his throat but Obama's just not got the fight in him. God, this pisses me off. And for anyone who says this is a concern troll, fuck you. This is about policy, not a cult of personality.

45. People were fact checking in real time. Google it.

Now everyone who listened heard what Romney said. He's stuck with his blatherings from now on. It's on video and there are many, many who heard him say it all.
