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.
his stopping oil drilling in the Gulf is a disgrace,

his funding oil drilling in Brazil is disgrace,

A recent letter touted the President Barack Obama’s 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.

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 Obama’s 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 isn’t working Mr. President?”


Solyndra: FAIL!- Obama gave $500,000,000 (that’s 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 Obama’s 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 Obama’s 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 Obama’s 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...

there is only one word to describe Biden's behavior, buffoon.

Ryan did a great job in battling the tag team of Raddatz and Biden to a stalemate.

in the old days of journalistic integrity, someone like Raddatz who had Obama to her wedding would have come right out front with that information rather then hide it,

and in the old days of journalistic integrity debate moderators like Raddatz would have gone out of their way to be non biased, now not only was raddatz aggressive in attacking Ryan, she may actually get an award for it,

journalistic integrity is a thing of the past when it comes to the corrupt mainstream media.

frankly this is on us, if we demanded journalistic integrity we would right now not be watching ABC at all, to send a message that we expect their news people to be non biased, and until they lose the biased media people, we will not watch their channel,

that is the only way to repair the corrupt mainstream media.

i can just imagine what biased questions the Gallup poll is picking out for the next debate, but i know what the people want to ask,

President obama, since you took office as senator in 2006, and continueing with your being president starting in 2008, you have overseen horrendous economic times with long term high unemployment, despite you spending trillions of dollars, a large amount of which included payoffs to cronies and supporters,

yet in the face of such high unemployment you spent a year ramming through healthcare, and have spent years demonizing job producing companies such as bain capital and small businesses, and in fact a large part of your reelection campaign is based on more job killing tax increases to small businesses,

why on earth would any american want to vote for you for president.

You right wingers might be better served to just keep your fox news drivel to yourselves. Every time you write something you expose more of your inability to think for yourselves and your reliance on the tin hat far right media to tell you what to think. Normal people get a laugh out of it, but it's getting harder and harder to take any of you seriously anymore. Don't you know that we have access to the same crappy sources that you paraphrase here? We all know the sources of your insanity.

Appeared to me that Obama clearly wasn't on his game but didn't actually do any complete reversals of his positions as Romney did. And I know you prefer visuals over facts, but Biden wiped the floor with Ryan. And he did it in the way you right wingers approve of when one of your clowns do it. Oh well.

Raddatz and Biden double teamed Paul Ryan, and between them contrived to prevent him from completing any statement!
Then they have the nerve to say that Ryan didn't give any "specifics"
Between Biden and Raddatz, they interrupted Paul Ryan ONE HUNDRED and SIXTEEN TIMES in less than 90 minutes!

Biden lied about the Obama tax increases being only for people earning over $1 million (its always been $200K for Obama).

He also lied about religious organizations not being forced to fund abortions and contraceptive care (US Bishops today reiterated that and, among other groups, are suing the federal government over that).

Biden also told bald faced lies about the terrorist attack in Libya.

And, of course, he acted like a complete ass. That part was honest, since he is a complete ass, and he makes a fantastic case for congressional term limits.

Nope, sorry, you're wrong, as usual. Biden had major ownage on Ryan, big time. He pounded him like the little boy Ryan is. I won't bother to refute your right wing talking points, you guys don't read any other sources than fox or rush, etc.

Says you. I am wrong about the Obama tax cuts not kicking in at $200K?? Prove it.

I am wrong about PelosiCare not forcing religious institutes to fund abortion, and the Catholic Conference of Bishops suing the federal government?? Where do you get your news? Sharpton????

the corrupt mainstream media think we are so stupid that we don't see the obvious bias in their news and how they handled the debate.

raddatz acted as part of the Obama reelection team, the irony is that ABC and the rest of the corrupt media are paying the price as more and more people shut off these channels in favor of a fair and balanced approach.

i actually know quite a few people that are so angry that they are refusing to buy any products from companies advertising on these networks.

the corrupt media are destroying their own credibility and influence, as their number of viewers drop every year.

Biden hurt the Obama cause, the people are much smarter then the left wing zealots give us credit for, we all know Biden lied continually, and we all realize how much of a buffoon he acted like, and how hard the media are working to try to help Obama,

it is all backfiring, if anything they are all making it worse for Obama, and the longer they pull this garbage the better it is for Romney and the republicans.

your posts are just like your hero Obama's campaign, all personal attacks and no facts.

4 years in office and the Obama administration is so devoid of accomplishments that they can only run on personal attacks on Romney. and your posts show that you can not find any positive accomplishments to quote. what a disgrace.

Barack Obama is by far the worst president in American history.

Yes. Exactly.

I just saw that there will be no split screen tonight. I think that's because Obama looked stupid on split screen (looking down, smirking), and Biden looked totally unhinged.

So tonight, no split screen.
