The moment I heard that complete, unmitigated bullshit, I turned the channel. I don't know if Schmuck Todd was on spinning that crap, too, as I didn't watch. Last time I looked, which was last night, Slick Willard was far behind where it really counts: the electoral college. And, those numbers really haven't been moving. Not that I believe the one or two polls that have him up in the popular vote, too.

have come out with a different tone since the debate. Its like they needed an excuse to put their plans in motion and I just have the same gut feeling as I did in 2004...confidence in a Kerry win but never thought we would see another theft like in Fla but a different state..I think there is a possibility it could come down to just one state(ohio) again and if that happens we will lose

fetal position on the floor, crying for Michelle and his Mommy, then it is clear that is a *WIN* for the President.

Remember, Mitt's got to leave him on the floor. Obama has to not allow Mitt to lie his ass off.

that way, when that *doesn't* happen, we declare victory and sprint this thing home.

I did the exact same thing last Thursday with the veep debates. No matter what, Mr P90-OhPlease was the smartest, most formidable debater on the face of planet earth, and if he can't handle our 'elderly, gaffe ridden veep' he is clearly unfit for office.

I say the same thing about Mitt right now.

But he knows how to attack and I think he will do so.

where whatever Obama does at the town hall can be criticized.

If he grins and laughs (as he often does when working crowds etc.) - ZOMG HE'S JUST LIKE BIDEN, HOW UNPRESIDENTIAL!!!! If he's more somber and restrained - ZOMG NO PASSION HE'S UNENGAGED, UNINTERESTED AND PROFESSORIAL!!!!

3. They hate it.
4. If our laughing is the best criticism they can muster, we have already won.
5. They hate it.

The Boomers are retired or retiring soon. I think they want Medicare to stay like it is or get better, not be turned into a voucher program that makes them do more work to get care.

If I were the Obama campaign I'd be showing lots of ads about Social Security and Medicare - who do you trust.

"If you believe ReTHUGs on Medicare and Social Security I Betty White am a virgin..." followed by a raucous loud laugh.

The funny thing is Fox news wants Obama to win... I know, many are saying whatttt?, but think about it, if Romney wins, what will Fox news talk about. Who will they cut down, who will they try to call racist slurs, what will the birthers do?, the teaparty?, the unemployment number truthers?, and right wing newspaper?.... See all these "functioning muckrakers" will be without things to rant about... OH NO... WHAT WILL MICHELE MALKIN DO?, HANNITY, O'REILLY, VARNEY... How will these tripe spewers survive without the Kenyan socialist, nazi, black, muslim anti-christ in the whitehouse. Well don't you worry Fox news cuz we will rescue you... We will make sure you guys have something to talk about for another 4 years. Hey how about I start off a good news story for the day after the election.... Hmmmm hey how about this.. "OBAMA STEALS ELECTION" there you go...go for it, its all yours.....

Biden did not let any lies pass. Obama should do the same. People will believe Obama over Romney any day.

Laughing isn't necessary.

Obama should laugh only in response if Romney starts laughing -- then they'll both be laughing.

The scum they send to vie for Pres and VP do not have a mature grasp of the Constitution, nor the workings of the government. They can't even do simple math. The fault of laughing at Republicans lies not with us but with them.
