1. You know, this right here is what is wrong with politics

I'd much rather talk about how horribly Mittens performed at the foreign policy debate. Not just his "body language" but his total lack of real knowledge, the apparent lack of curiosity about the subject at all. We can never have a President again that doesn't have some sense that foreign policy matters--especially if we're going to continue to fight the "war on terror."

I'd rather talk about a man running for President who thinks he doesn't have to release his tax returns.

I'd rather talk about the character of a man that lies every time he opens his mouth, just to get a vote. I mean politicians lie but RMoney takes it to a brand new level--and that is frightening.

Those are the important things we should be thinking and talking about (and GOTV). We shouldn't be talking about something that MATT DRUDGE brought up, which should make us all know there really isn't anything to see here. Drudge is just HOPING like hell, that someone nibbles on the hook.

2. I get the feeling that this Allred thing is a big pile of nothing

Just like the Trump thing. Both actually sound really stupid and pointless.

3. Yup. Obama won the debate big time, is closing strongly, lets remain focused not sidetracked.

 

and maybe all this stuff should go not in the politics2012 or general discussion, but somewhere in a lesser part of this board, at least for the next 2 weeks. IMHO

6. Do you think someone like Romney goes to the yellow pages when he needs a lawyer

It doesn't matter whether its a matter large or small -- he, like others with the means and resources -- is going to go top drawer for legal assistance no matter what the issue.

5. Not objecting to the release?

That's a surprise.

I wonder whether he has someone else fighting it for him (the ex husband?)
