Romney didn't say that.<quoted text>
but threatening to get rid of PBS and big bird was better for a closing speech???
He said he would end the federal subsidy for PBS.
There's a difference.

Oh my gracious - even Ohio looks like it's sliding toward Romney ...
Keep wishing and clicking those ruby slippers together, Wishful ...

Having John Kerry as your debate coach is like having Dr. Jack Kevorkian as your "wellness" Doctor.
#117622 Oct 5, 2012
I agree with you Joe. BO appeared dazed in debate because he didn't know which Romney policy stance to combat; his on the record policy, or his policy du jour... just conjured up that night.
#117623 Oct 5, 2012
Oh my gracious, another conservative polling result. What happened to it's too early to tell?

Big bird can take care of himself. He will do just fine in the commercial world. Oh wait... He already does. All those Big bird toys, lunch boxes, and other paraphernalia seem to do just fine. Romney summed it up very well. Is it worth borrowing money from China just to keep Big Bird in his nest. Time for the bird to fly on his own.

The nice thing about these early polls is that we already know they are somewhat skewed to the liberal viewpoint. The reason being that those of us that work for a living to support all those who sit at home answering poll phone calls, just don't have the time to talk to the pollsters.
#117628 Oct 5, 2012
Nice thing about early polls is when the results don't favor the conservatives, terms like "somewhat skewed" are used to protect their flank.
Reality is the debate showed no bump in favor of Willard.

in one night the entire dynamic of the election has changed, you can feel the desperation in the democratic party, i fully expect Romney to now put the hammer down and start spending his war chest and hit Obama on his utter failure of a presidency.
just think about it, Obama is cheering 7.8 per cent unemployment like it is an accomplishment, this is a disgrace.
his green jobs programs are a disgrace,
the stimulus was a disgrace,
his foreign policy is a disgrace,
his administration is buried in scandals from fast and furious, to sebelius, to the cronyism, the solyndra's, the libya coverup,
the momentum has changed, and things are looking good on the right.

You got to love the recent job report.
All you President Obama haters, eat your hearts out!
#117633 Oct 6, 2012
just goes to show how low expectations are for Obama, he buries us in debt, trillion dollar deficits for his term, and at best the unemployment rate is 7.8 percent, if that number is really true, and the democrats actually act as if this is good news.
frankly if we had a real president who actually cared about jobs instead of ramming through obamacare, then the unemployment rate would be 5 percent or less.
fortunately our current choice is clear.
Romney, the American success story, who made himself rich while creating thousands of jobs, who has raised 5 sons, cared for his wife through multiple sclerosis and cancer, went to Harvard law and business school at the same time, and who has been successful at everything he has done right down to his governorship of the liberal state of Massachusetts, where he showed that he can work with both sides of the aisle,
vs. Obama, the pothead and drug user, who has lied and scammed his way into office, and basically failed in every part of being president, he is such a failure that he dares not run on his record, but instead is running one of the dirtiest campaigns in history, counting on smear tactics rather then telling the truth about his negative accomplishments as president.
this choice is crystal clear, and hopefully we will wake up the morning after election day and realize that the long night is over, and it is morning again in America.

When obama care goes into affect ,will i need to put my 26yr old child in a car seat? and do you know where I would buy one?

Now Obama is being called out by the same economist that he quoted as the basis for his statements in the debate about taxes, as "misrepresenting his paper",
"But that's not true. Princeton professor Harvey Rosen tells THE WEEKLY STANDARD in an email that the Obama campaign is misrepresenting his paper on Romney's tax plan:"
" Mr. President, you're entitled as the president to your own airplane and to your own house, but not to your own facts."
#117639 Oct 8, 2012
I just hope that Romney and Ryan don't let up now that they won this debate,
they need to prepare just as hard for the next debates including the debate with Biden,
it would be very easy to underestimate Biden, but they can not afford to underestimate him, nor can they afford to sit on a lead,
this election is just too close at this point to not use every opportunity to display the differences between the failed Obama Biden policies that have buried the middle class over the past 4 years and which promise a trillion dollar tax increase,
and the Romney/Ryan plan of bringing prosperity back to our country and creating jobs to end this economic downturn once and for all.

A recent letter touted the President Barack Obamas steady leadership. Unfortunately, the letter left out a few accomplishments. They include:
Unemployment is over 8 percent.
The United States debt is $16 trillion.
No budget has been passed during his term.
A new entitlement passed that is now forecasted to cost more than $1.7 trillion during the next 10 years.
46 million people are receiving food stamps.
A decrease in the net worth of almost all Americans.
No plan submitted to save Social Security or Medicare.
14 million people are projected to lose their employer-sponsored health care.
Gas prices are approaching $4 a gallon.
College tuition is up over 8 percent in 2011.
Foreign policy that has created a Middle East crisis and puts the United States at risk.
$26 billion IOU to taxpayers from General Motors, that will likely never be paid.
EPIC F A I L U R E !

Most Americans are asking,Can the United States of America REALLY afford FOUR MORE YEARS of President Obama?
List Of Failed Green Energy Jobs & Companies By Obama
Update: 7/19/12: The Amonix Solar: FAIL! manufacturing plant in North Las Vegas, subsidized by more than $20 million in federal tax credits and grants given by Obama Administration, has closed its 214,000 square foot facility a year after it opened.
Solar Trust of America: FAIL!- Filed Bankruptcy in Oakland, CA, April 3, 2012
Bright Source: FAIL!- Bright Source warned Obamas Energy Department officials in March 2011 that delays in approving a $1.6 billion U.S. loan guarantee would embarrass the White House and force the solar-energy company to close. Bright Source lost billions of dollars but is getting more money to keep trying. Can you say,This isnt working Mr. President?
Solyndra: FAIL!- Obama gave $500,000,000 (thats a HALF BILLION!) in taxpayer money to Solyndra who shut its doors and laid off 1100 workers in August 2011 after billions in losses due to failure to make a solar product that works! Barack Obama was not vetted before being elected President and neither was Solyndra before Mr. Obama threw that taxpayer money down the drain of unproven technology.
LSP Energy: FAIL!- LSPEnergy LP filed bankruptcy protection and a sale of its assets in Feb 2012
Energy Conversion Devices: FAIL! On February 14, 2012 Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. and its subsidiaries filed for bankruptcy
Abound Solar: FAIL!- Abound Solar received a $400 million loan guarantee from Barack Obama then announced in June, 2012 that it would file for bankruptcy. Many of these failed corporations, such as Abound, donated MILLIONS and continue to donate to Barack Obamas campaign. Can you say,Democrat Slush Fund? Yes this is illegal. But Democrats are being protected from being prosecuted, for now.
SunPower: FAIL!- SunPower stopped producing solar cells in 2011 at near bankruptcy then restructured with the help of, get this, oil giant TOTAL, Inc. who owns 60% stake in SunPower. Irony? The company is still struggling.
Beacon Power: FAIL! Beacon Power Corp filed for bankruptcy protection in October, 2011 just a year after Obama approved a $43 million Government loan guarantee. They remain barely in business, still struggling to make energy that makes sense or that works at all.
Ecotality: FAIL!- ECOtality, a San Francisco green-tech company that never earned any money and remains on the verge of bankruptcy after receiving roughly $115 million in two loan guarantees from President Obama, who wants to do some more of this kind of Democrat Slush Fund Guarantees after he is elected to a 2nd term.
A123 Solar: FAIL!- A123 Solar received $279 million from taxpayers thanks to President Obamas Department of Energy loan guarantees even after the Solyndra bankruptcy and is getting another $500M from Obama after a loss of $400M.
UniSolar: FAIL!- Uni-Solar filed for Ch 11 bankruptcy in June 20, 2012 after laying off hundreds of workers. UniSolar received even more Obama money after showing now progress, no profits and is still failing yet they still remain in business with Obamas help.
Azure Dynamics: FAIL!- Azure Dynamics filed for bankruptcy in June , 2012 wasting millions in Obama Stimulus money and received abatement on taxes owed and and several tax credits. Azure Dynamics LLC filed for bankruptcy protection in Canada and the US. Azure laid off 120 of its 160 employees in Oak Park; Boston; Vancouver, British Columbia; and the UK.
Evergreen Solar: FAIL!- Evergreen Solar received $527 Million in Taxpayer money from Obama and filed bankruptcy in late 2011...
