    George McGovern is the winner.

    He was right about US foreign policy all along...neither of these schmucks deserve to win

    Okay, I won't ask you to change your opinion.....

    ......but I'd like to see you explain it in some detail.

    Don't be lazy. "Schmucks" doesn't tell us much about your reasoning

    process.


    BACK TO MCGOVERN, Yes he would appeal to you....because in one area he appears to agree with your man Ron Paul.

    McGovern wanted to end the Vietnam War-----which turned out to not be so controversial because within 3 years, President Nixon was ending the War himself.

    McGovern was specific about the conflict he wanted to end. Ron Paul wants to end all of America's conflicts----and IGNORE THE WORLD we live in.
    Sounds Dreamy....and crazy!

    Both Mitt and President Obama have more grasp on current reality than Ron Paul.

    But TONIGHT, President Obama proved worthy of continuing our leadership in the world.

    More polls coming in... Obama with big leads in everything I'm seeing.
    Public Policy Polling is important because it polls only swing states:



    PPP tweets that Obama is winning their swing state poll on the debate...

    PublicPolicyPolling ‏@ppppolls
    Here's our post-debate swing states poll, which found Barack Obama as the winner by a 53/42 margin: http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/pdf/2011/1022PostDebatePoll.pdf …

    8m PublicPolicyPolling ‏@ppppolls
    The states covered in our swing state poll were CO, FL, MI, IA, NH, NV, NC, OH, PA, VA, and WI

    10m PublicPolicyPolling ‏@ppppolls
    Swing state voters say Obama won the debate 53-42, and are planning to vote for him 51-45

    President Obama has now won two of the three debates.
    And he won this debate by 30 points - a wider margin than Romney's win in the first debate:
    http://www.businessinsider.com/debate-poll-obama-wins-won-romney-cbs-instant-2012-10

    This debate seemed like a reverse of the first debate - with Mitt looking weak and indecisive and President Obama looking strong and in command.

    Yup. But at least CJAZ is FINALLY on the record as supporting Romney and predicting he'll win (it happened last night, in case you missed it.) None of the "I never said that, Rick!" stuff anymore. icon_biggrin.gif

    I did miss that.
    Thanks for bringing me up to date.
    No wonder he's MIA.

    We all knew CJ's excuses and denials were BS - but I'm glad he finally admitted that he is predicting Romney will win.
    We'll see if he's correct.

    Wherever you are, CJ:

    I AM SO GRATEFUL THAT HE REMINDED ME TO WATCH

    THE MOST DECISIVE AND DEFINING DEBATE.

    Mitt Romney's easy five-step approach to foreign policy:

    Step 1: Get the facts wrong.
    Step 2: Undermine long-standing relationships with your allies.
    Step 3: Frequently highlight your lack of experience.
    Step 4: Assemble a team of ideologues committed to endless war.
    Step 5: Mistake your enemies.

    WOW
    Landslide win for President Obama tonight - even in the Fox poll.

    It's a somber mood tonight among the Repubs.
    The Repubs didn't seem to mind seeing Mitt try to flip-flop to the middle in the previous two debates - but I think Mitt's sudden (attempted) conversion tonight - to anti-war peacenik - didnt go over well with the GOPers.

    And Mitt's weak and rather sad tone was the absolute WRONG tone to strike in the foreign policy debate - when voters are looking for someone who will be a strong commander-in-chief.

    Mitt's strategy tonight was just dead wrong.

    As expected in the final presidential debate, Mitt Romney was in way over his head, as President Obama used his experience as Commander in Chief to lay waste to his Republican challenger.

    With Romney badly losing the debate, the Republican broke out all of the far right talking points about Obama being weak. Romney claimed that Obama wanted to sit down with China, N. Korea, Iran, and that the president apologized for America. Obama fired back by calling out Romney’s lie about the apology tour as not true. He then knocked down Romney’s tough talk on Iran by bringing up his investment with a Chinese oil company that was doing business with Iran.

    It was interesting, I listened to the debate on Sirius Radio on my iPhone while working out at the gym, and you get a whole different perspective while only hearing the voices and not seeing the body language or split/screen. Does anyone else think Romney (at times) sounds like Ronald Reagan? (Not so much what he says, but the sound of his voice) I came home and watched it on TV and came away with pretty much the same feeling about it. I'll let the polls dictate who won or lost this debate, but being the 3rd debate, what was important in the end was WHO actually emerged WINNING the most overall. If Obama loses this election, I think it will all have come down to debate #1 --- and the fact that the Obama campaign has spent the last year painting Romney as this shrewd, uncaring, wishy washy business man who was unfit to be President, and that's not the Mitt Romney who showed up. Obama's lackluster performance in that debate (which personally I didn't think was nearly as bad as it was portrayed as) opened the door even wider for Mitt Romney to walk right through it --- and he did. What America saw was a confident, knowledgable, and very Presidential looking, talking, and acting Mitt Romney -- not what Obama needed or wanted. It was by all accounts the "game changer" Romney needed to, in fact, get back in the game. In Debate #2, both came off as bickering and unlikable at times -- which doesn't help either candidate. Obama got the nod because in that debate he was perceived as more on his game, a vast improvement on Debate #1, but did he stop Romney's momentum? I don't think so. Slowed it down perhaps. Now we have Debate #3, and the objectives for both candidates were different than than in the first two debates. What Romney needed to do more than anything is continue to appear Presidential, while at the same time obliterating the whole "war mongering" persona that the Obama campaign had been trying to paint him as. He succeeded on both counts. Again, we'll let the pollsters pick the winner on this one, but the candidate who may ultimately have won the most, in MY opinion, will be Mitt Romney. Clearly, he made a very calculated tactical decision to not go overly aggressive, to stay on point, and drive the Regan-esque "Peace Through Strength" mantra home over and over again, while at the same time bringing this back to how it applies to the economy. I think it worked. So, yes, my clock is still ticking...Tick..Tock...Tick...Tock... icon_wink.gif

    I managed to get out of the gym in time to watch it and it was a tie IMO. I expected Romney to be a little weak on this one because as a governor, he just can’t have too much in the way of foreign policy experience, but he was stronger than I expected. Obama was knowledgeable, but petulant, defensive and condescending in a way that only Obama can be plus rude and interruptive.

    Nothing changed for me. Romney / Ryan 2012

    Those were your words I believe? All I did was underline.



    Edit: OK, I stand corrected, but that's the first time I've seen CJ make any prediction.

    I'm not there yet. I still think the odds are 60 - 40 in favor of Obama as much as that pains me to say.
