- Post Debate Roundup

I don't really have anything to say on the debate because I only managed to sit through about 20 minutes of it. After nearly 4 years I just can't stand to listen to Obama anymore. So this is really just to provide a post for user comments. Personally I can't see how it was a clear victory for either of them.

The bikini girl is basically because it's less boring than a photo of the candidates - call it an homage to Frith's clever quip and to celebrate his return. (But this idea could go south quickly so let's call this the last of them.)

We'll see where today's Bikinis will swing.

I too can only handle small teaspoons of Hussein. Harwood and the other buffoons called it a win for Obama. I watched snips and was forced to turn Obama off midway through most of his pitch. For me - It's too late Obama, you had your chance.

If the Democrat Base is energized by the style of last night's debate, then they really have nothing left in the tank.

I saw 45 seconds of post debate and Kudlow was saying something bout BHO ripping the Bush tax cuts . So once again I figured that the Repubs had let BHO take the tax cut bad high ground.
I just dont get it.So simple to defend.
And seeing her in the stqrs and stripes makes we want to sing God bless America!!!

Mitt gave us a Prelude to next Monday:
ROMNEY: "My foreign policy won't include bowing to every two-bit, third world dictator, potentate and hustler in the known world."

I don't think they EVER had anything in the tank.

Being a liberal/progressive/democrat is all about froth. It's believing in miracles. and when the miracles don't come (and they never do even thought it's always going to be 'different this time') the thing you have left when they're done coping with their disappointment is a conservative.

My brother thinks the most memorable thing I've ever written was from my Obama election post Hail Ants:

"The inevitable shattering of liberal ideals as they collide with the inescapable facts of reality is never pretty. But it’s a lesson I suppose we need to learn every generation or so."

That's where we are now I think. I just hope we've had enough pain for the enough of the Obama-zombies to learn that lesson.

Mitt fumbled the Assault Weapon Question last night, but its not a game changer.

James Carville, Democrat political consultant extraordinaire – and former Bill Clinton campaign manager, has astonishingly come out and said what all good Republicans have known for decades: Not only are most Democrats politically clueless; they’re easily manipulated by the puppet masters of their party as well. Wow. James Freaking Carville. Of all people. Here’s an excerpt, as quoted by “Ideologies aren’t all that important. What’s important is psychology. The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running.

The Libya whiff, even with the Crowley thumb on the scale, is a missed layup by Mitt. I don't know why I put myself through watching these: my vote isn't changing, NJ isn't turning red, and neither is my home state of MA (despite my efforts to "turn" liberal family & friends there). I hope there is a decent MNF game next week...

I didn't watch the debate - too much like work. I heard a few sound clips on the drive in to the office. Obama's voice was an octave too high for most of them. High emotion in the voice makes you appear defensive and less confident. Romney used a lower pitch.

I'll be waiting to see the post mortems and the ensuing bikinis, whatever style they may be.

bzod, NJ did turn red to get to Christie. For presidential election it may not go red, but it will be close enough, not a slam dunk for blue, due to some of the work Christie had done. You dont think an ex-gov of MA can pull some independent votes in MA? I think it will be closer there too
