18. historically speaking

challengers generally win the first debate. Rachel Maddow did a first segment on this last week. I recommend you go look that up.

I think Obama is going to be way stronger because now he knows exactly what he's dealing with. Everyone was crying about him looking down and writing all the time: what I saw was a look on his face saying "oh no, he di-in't just say that..." and wrote it down---and interestingly, he was using a lot of what mittiot said at the debate in his stump speeches and ads over the course of the next week. mittiot hasn't used anything Obama said, nor his demeanor, at the debate against him in the interrim.

A reporter in Michigan got ryan on the record saying that Obama hasn't instituted any restrictions in the gun laws since he was in office--and that is flying in the face of the nra's ad running saying that he did.

I'm one of those Dems who is unwavering in their support of the president. I'm not distracted by shiny, sparkly lies like apparently some seem to be. It would take a hell of a lot more than Obama's performance at one debate to make me stay home on election day.
