About the Debate on Wednesday - Remember Anything Much That Obama Said? [View all]

Here's a transcript of the entire debate:

http://www.npr.org/2012/10/03/162258551/transcript-first-obama-romney-presidential-debate

It's a good read. There, you'll see what each candidate actually said, rather than focusing on the drama surrounding the debate, which tends to bury the actual words of the debaters in a flurry of comments about their style.

In the discussions here on DU, I noticed that not much was said about the actual content of the debate. Everyone's focus was primarily on Romney's aggressive approach and Obama's seemingly passive acceptance of that. In reality, Obama said a lot of stuff during the debate. I heard it all, but got caught up here on DU in how the debate went, and pretty much forgot what was said during it.

It's worth reviewing. It might change some people's minds about how President Obama actually did in the debate.

Anyhow, the link above will take you to the transcript, if you're interested.
