87. Too much deception

built in to these politically adapted "debates" and then someone wants to to go back to the classic rules. Too late. JFK/Nixon set in this long reaction/manipulation and whether you believe the League of Women Voters holds the most honest arbiter handbook all that was abandoned long ago.

False impression, fraud and corporate media manipulation is the gameboard. You can play astounding chess on that tilt and over go the pieces.

Not understanding how that applies to the event is astounding foregetfulness. Both sides in this maze of illusion get so full of themselves they get lost in it regularly. It is now tilted so badly in favor of the GOP even a professional liar can't beat them at their own game. Dem primary debates and GOP debates are not just ideologically different although they both carry on as if the only thing you can do is untinkingly fail expectations.

There was literally nothing Romney could do other than he did. He was a strutting dead man doing a puppet show bluff. That it seemed to work- on Obama- was a setback we have seen before as in Reagan's betrayal of mental and physical incompetence against a polite, factual, energetic Mondale. But the debate game does not end there. The GOP has a whole preset operation of gaming the media and polls after the debate to make the insignificant real. Mondale was never given any bounce or chance. His victory was turned into a tragic attack on the unclad Emperor. The Dems then as now had nothing except a few standard cheerleading tacks against the machine and a well bludgeoned populace.

"poor debate performance" "mean Joe". Were these Big bird 47% gifts from dangerously deceitful, unlikeable pro-plutocrats/screw America candidates? Even people who don't believe the meme serve the meme by merely repeating the lunacy.

Could for once, instead of trying to beat these obnoxious liars at their own disgusting game, put an honest one back in its place? Or even face up to what is going on and how it is resented when the perpetual Dem straight man script is not strictly followed while Mr. Yuk Yuk star gets to throw pie in the face?
