Modest advantage Obama, but neither man did all that well

Which media source are you using to watch the Debate? C-Span here

Anti-teacher film opens to WORST movie opening of all time.

I think that the mics should be cut off once the time limit has been hit.

New path, my ass!

So Romney is basically abdicating federal responsibility to the whims of whatever State you live in

Over talking and not following the rules of the debate (Romney) is not winning DU.

I think Obama is doing fine!

HELP! head exploding and think am having stroke

Everyone said the moderator or Obama would bring up the 47%

Obama is defensive, not offensive on the Economy

Romney on special needs education

One of the worst debating performances of a sitting President I've ever seen.

"It wasn't very detailed... seems to be a trend"

MAJOR FAIL !!! - Romney Finishes With A Flourish On The Constitution By Quoting The Declaration...

Politifact is making Romney look like a psychopath. Obama seems to be doing quite well...

Now Laher is inturupting the President.

So we added 12,000,000 more people on food stamps because Obama crashed the economy?

"Trickle down"

Post Debate Plan

How fast was this parody Twitter account made?

Lehrer not doing his job puts Obama in a predicament

Romney Backs Away From Own Tax Plan

Lehrer Cutting President Obama Off

I would like to file a formal complaint, this so called debate has been handled horribly.

Lehrer needs to grow a spine and tell Robme to STFU!

Anyone getting sound drop offs on PBS feed?

Bill Maher tweet...

Finally 10:22 an actual zing.

Romney doesn't know the difference between the Declaration of Independence and The U.S.

Mr. Etch A Sketch is tacking to the middle. He's going to continue

Debate Almost Over - Even More Confused On Romney's Positions

Romney said you put your money where your heart is

Romney Backs Away From Own Tax Plan

"I most certainly am not planning on doing all those things I've been saying I was planning to do."

Sweet Jesus

how do you debate someone who changes their positions at whim?

is Romney coming off as Likable ?

They need to send in the regular moderators, instead of the scab jim

I like Big Bird and I cannot Lie!!

Romney's been practicing making his voice sound like Reagan's


Neil deGrasse Tyson tweet:

Romney could drop trou and take a dump on the carpet,

Great! Mitt is running on MORE MEETINGS!

Lies didn't really work for them at the GOP convention

Romney sounds like a suck up, but......

What was Romney's approval rating as Massachussetts governor?

#JimLehrer is trending on Twitter, and the comments are not kind

Romney spent the entire debate on the verge of hyperventilation

OK<...I claim ignorance...

It's 10:23. Romney is spewing like Bill Murray's character in groundhog day. Debate making me ill.

When Lehrer and asshole don't interrupt him

"Massachusetts has union teachers"

I think Motormouth Mitt wins a trophy for speed-lying tonight.

there are 3 debates... romney showed a lot of cards tonight...

Bad Moderation ruined the integrity of the debate, in my humble opinion.

78 year old Jim Lehrer ...

Romney Supports Education!

I have never seen as many critical low class criticisms of a Dem nominee on DU

There are two more debates

"I'm concerned about America." Ladies and gentlemen: Mitt Romney, The Ultimate 'Concern' Troll!


The trolls are in force tonight

Obama is going up on Intrade

LOL, YouTube just cut off Romney in his closing arguments, an automated hard-cut.

Those of you who think Obama lost tonight

I do not want your America you lying creepy robot!

Explain Intrade to me -- because Romney is losing big time there

When people compare what Romney said to (a) the facts, and (b) what he's said previously

Obama started slow and finished strong

The loser of this debate: The Commission on Presidential Debates

Romney was a rambling, hyperventilating wreck

Before I say goodnight, Fuck you Mr. Robme fuck you

When you're winning in the 4th quarter, you play it safe, run the ball & run out the clock

Mitt Romney's closing argument!

Can we please get DU back top normal now? Will the traffic slow down?

On CNN's graph, mittens is flatlining with female undecided voters

forty seven percent was never once mentioned.

The President Did Just Fine- Now Chill and Let Him Get On To the Rest of the Campaign!

So did that dumbass reality show help the dozen undecided voters out there pick their horse?

Romney didn't win the debate, Obama lost it

From now on, rMoney's new nickname is Creamsmirk! N/t

Suddenly, Beldar's discovered Massachusetts!

Because poor, inner city parents can choose where their children go to school.

Fuck Jim Lehrer

boring as hell

Moderator SUCKS

This the first time the Rmoney family has ever seen black people in person, by the way....

Rachel: We saw this debate format die a slow death on camera tonight

Jim Leherer acted like an NFL replacement ref

For the record. Mittens did NOTHING for Massachusetts.


Obama Wins by Fighting Every Single Day for All Americans

$716 billion cut in Medicare, $716 billion cut in Medicare, $716 billion cut in Medicare

YES! Rachel!!!

Biggest loser: Jim Lehrer

I forgot how much I hate fucking debates!

I thought Romney acted like a tweaked out bully

plastic face plastic smile

After the Debate tonight, all I can say is...

That was not a debate - it was a Rmoney Monologue

I am not a troll.

Face it friends...Mitt won this one.

Gish Gallop

Go, Ed! Telling the truth about Obama's SS comment!

Obama did fine!

Big Ed:The President was horrible

I'm a coward and admit it, I turned off TV--what are the pundits saying?....

MSNBC - Ed saying the President made problems for himself tonight and I agree. The SS was

AlJazeera saying...

Romney wanders at the end. Tosses out random talking points.

Those of you who think Obama lost...

Is something going on that has Obama preoccupied?

Mitt wins the debate until the fact checkers are heard tomorrow morning

Mondale won the first debate in 84

Debate polls thread

The only one who seems to understand what he's suppose to do on MSNBC, is Sharpton.

Obama held his own. The MittTwit got NO game change. No major mistakes on either side. DRAW.

The reason the debate wasn't that great ->>>>>> Jim Lehrer


Obama's always too goddamn nice to Republicans. And we saw that again tonight.

Romney is being crushed to a pulp in this debate

Gore was bashed by the same Whores for being Aggressive

When I press "Latest Threads" or "Greatest Threads" I don't get the list

You know what? It doesn't take more than 30 seconds to say: "Hey

Romney was as bland, uninspiring, and robotic as he's always been.

WOW! Tweety is foaming at the mouth.

Tweety is beside himself

Ed on MSNBC is pissed..

If Obama wins this election, it's because of us, not him....

Wow . . . Tweety is blowing a gasket!

Where was Obama tonight? Tweety

Tweety Is On Fire

Nothing Romney said was true

Oh boy... here it comes...

Matthews is dead on about the debate.

Romney just shook his etch a sketch...

Ed says Romney won.... would you disagree?

Any snap polls yet?

Well, that was disappointing.

My favorite Romney fuck up moment...

People, ROMNEY WAS REHERSED FOR THIS, he doesn't have an original thought about anything

Romey told Leher "I'm coming after you and Big Bird" PBS going down.

Is there really ANY room to favor Romney over President Obama in this debate? On what?

Yahoo Debate Poll

What is President OBAMA'S October surprise?

I'm in a state of shock/sadness

What are the shots Obama missed???

I think Romney DOMINATED the debate, rather than winning it....not the same thing

I was watching the pre-debate show on C-Span when an older woman, Republican called

Joe Madison:I though the President was Presidential

Intrade is calling it a draw

Dennis Kucinich...Ten Years Ago Congress Began Debate Over Iraq War.

Dear Obama Re-election team....

President Romney

CBC onscreen debate poll

geez...when romney talked about working with dems in MA - just bullshit

When did Obama hit the asshole with 47%?

Played it safe and had a very bad night.

Thank you Lawrence O'Donnell

My wise, more moderate husband said this:

Why did that debate suck so much?

So how many ads can be made juxtaposing Mitten's latest flip flops?

I'm just amazed. This is the first Presidential Candidate that has gotten away

He will be indicted for perjury.

MSNBC is crucifying Rmoney

Romney trying to miraculously reinvent himself as the friend of the middle classes...

While Obama lost some opportunities, Romney seemed unhinged..Very me.

So yelling over your opponent and moderator is winning? Bullshit.

Romney made a good testimony, but

I just donated to President Obama.

Romney installed a 1tb lying chip for tonight, Obama forgot his fact checking chip

Why was Romney smirking when Obama spoke?

Fact checkers are going to have a field day with Mitt.

October 11--VP debate--Biden vs. Lyin' Ryan

This is not a fucking game!

Obama cleaned house tonight

In The First Presidential Debate in 1984, Walter Mondale Crushed Ronald Reagan

Governor O'Malley: Mitt's promises were like eat cake, lose weight

I know we wanted Obama to obliterate Romney but a draw is a win for Obama

Has anyone else wondered if the reason the President seemed so out of it

It is vaguely *possible* this was the right debate strategy.

Tweety looks like he is going to have a stroke right there on camera.

My teenaged daughter on Facebook --

A theory on the 47%, and why it wasn't brought up tonight by Pres. Obama.

President's surrogates are doing a much better job having this President's back......

Romney: I’ll Cover Pre-Existing Conditions, Obama: No, You Won’t

Thanks for creating the next etch-a-sketch ad, Mitt

Free money! Go to Intrade and buy Obama shares (freepers buying Romney shares which'll be worthless

Cutter: "I sometimes wondered if we even needed a moderator because we had Mitt Romney."

How can Pres Obama respond to 100 lies in 1 minute? C'mon MSNBC!

Now here's some good news - check out this ad by Allen West's opponent.

I do not think the President did well tonight.

Romney, for the first time in his life, was pumped with caffeine

I think what is important is how many minds were changed..

After tonight's debate performance I'm going to...

Three Preliminary Observations

Now I get why Romney changes his position. It was in prep for the debates.

President Obama stumbled thru his words & Romney sailed thru his lies.

Did anyone else see Romney wipe his lip?

As Gregory just let slip - Mitt served up a big plate of ads and stump talking points for Obama...

Depressed after the debate

Romney did not win votes today

FACT CHECK: Presidential debate missteps

Romney according to CNN was more agressive in first debate

Romney was way too aggressive -- looked like a bully and a NUT.

Rudy the Skull is on lying on MSNBC

Romney was a real dick to Jim Leher, how is that going to play with the Seniors?

Let's be freaking honest, damn it

alot of newbie threads tonight wonder why nt

My impression from the debates is that Obama is saving up for the last ones.

post debate fact checkers will kill Romney

Do people here really think these debates are going to alter the underlying dynamics of this race?

Only one question remains after the debate

Mass was #1 in everything when Mitt was gov

It's easy to win a debate if you can make up your own facts.

Romney is a LIAR - relax

Next debate, people will have high expectations for Willard

If Romney won't cut taxes what's the Fucking Point?

"Male person's conservative kind of middle of the road cotton undergarment"

Why were there no questions on women's rights, gays or immigration in tonight's presidential debate?

Remember how Kerry's ass kicking debates lead to victory?

Just found this - haven't read it all yet - NY Times debate live blog

WTF? Did they see the same debate I saw?

In terms of securing votes tonight. Obama clearly wins.

Stop Panicing people. Be calm.

Would a GOOD JOBS REPORT Friday make up for ...

R-OPMoney's smoke and mirrors tax plan - Mostly False

It's a shame Mitt didn't show up tonight.

Oh shit, Chris Hayes just punked Rudy!

Chris Hayes is doing a better job debating Guillliani than Obama did debating Romney.

Mitt just threw the Tea Party under the bus -- his entire base, in fact.

Romney won on style and Obama won on substance. This is becoming more and more clear.

Romney: I’ll Cover Pre-Existing Conditions, Obama: No, You Won’t

Is there anyone here who really understands independents / swing voters?

So,...I can't decide, MSNBC a bunch of jackoffs or a circle jerk?

I Have a Nuanced Take on The Debates

Watch the polls . . . none of the superficial, performance judgments about the debate will matter

The etch-a-sketch moment

Here's why the media seems to think Romney won the debate, and it should be familiar to all of us.

The source of my "concern."

Obama was deeply affected by...

Why didn't Obama bring up Mitt's missing tax returns or foreign investments?

I have seen this line..Bullies Always Win...It isn't true..NO

romney was too manic, obama too understated

Why didn't he take off the gloves?

Tonight - Romney told middle class/middle aged voters that he is eliminating Medicare as we know it

47%, woman's rights, immigration, outsourcing --- Obama will slam Mitt on this next time, right?!
