Tonight could have been Rmoney's death knell

With the latest polling data, many of Rmoney's big money donors were quietly looking for the exit and potentially getting ready to stitch sides in order to be with the winner. Slimebags like Rove were beginning to shift monies away from Rmoney and put them instead in down-ticket elections for Senate and House. A good performance by the President might well have been the final touch to push all of them and make Rmoney's Presidential bid a dead item. But I fear that with the President's lackluster performance tonite, particularly when combined with his inability to challenge Rmoney on the myriad of lies he spouted are going to breathe a whole new life into the Rmoney campaign. The end result may well be an election a hell of a lot more in doubt than it should have been and that's a damn shame. I don't know why the President is unable to show more balls in confrontation with Rethuglicans. It's a trait which has in large part ruined much of his first term and may in the final analisys cost him his second term.

God, Chuck Toad is a loathsome little

woodchuck of a TV commentator. Watching Hardball and heard him pontificate on why Obama is only ahead because he got 3 or 4 'lucky breaks' during the course of the campaign until now, and how we can expect miracles from Rmoney because he's a 'seasoned debater who does well coming from behind in debates'. Do they really have to keep uttering this shit to keep the 'this is still a horserace' meme going?
