Obama won by a slight margin. Romney made the same mistakes Obama made in the first debate, like not pressing, for example, on the Benghazi security measures taken BEFORE the attack, not after. Also, Romney looked like he was lying when he maintained that Obama did not mention a "terror attack" the day after in the rose garden. Proven that he did.

This small victory won't change the polls, it's still a dead heat. Anybody's election.

True it is they are filthy rich
Yet the Gulf States import almost everything except oil and gas and produce next to nothing, just like the other Emirates.

By the way, speaking of the Gulf, the Persian Gulf has enjoyed a Persian identity for millenia, much to the dismay of the Arabian Sunnis.

THE FACTS: What Obama didn’t mention is that much of the money that has been paying for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was borrowed. In fact, the government borrows nearly 40 cents for every dollar it spends. Thus using money that had been earmarked for wars to build schools and infrastructure would involve even more borrowing, adding to the federal deficit.
Wait a sec, Rogue Moron said that we're not borrowing money to fund the military.

Can you clear this up with him?

Barfer Girks, you can easily put an end to this by posting case law that supports your silly, uneducated interpretation of jurisdiction.
It's really simple.
Maybe next time you leave the bunker you can stop by a law library? The librarians will be more than happy to help a layperson find the resources s/he needs to write a cogent reply.
Funny that my silly, uneducated interpretation of jurisdiction is exactly what is contained in the 14th and the CRA of 1866. Imagine that Girdle Buns! Hmmm, you just got clownstomped. LMAO pigeon

"Crowley's False Fact Check Saves President, Derails Debate - UPDATE: Crowley Backtracks

**UPDATE 4: Politico's Dylan Byers: "After the debate, even Crowley seemed to acknowledge that she had erred."

***UPDATE 3: Even Politico's Mike Allen is questioning Crowley's call.

***UPDATE 2: Even Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler says Crowley got it wrong: Obama "did not say terrorism."

***UPDATE: After the debate, Anderson Cooper was the first member of the CNN post debate group to question whether or not Romney really got the Libya issue wrong. They then brought Crowley on and after all the damage she had done during the debate, she finally admitted that Romney was "right" but "picked the wrong word."

That's settled law. Play law doesn't count.

Wish-full thinking, Puss!
Oh, what ever happen to that dual-citizenship, that would have made Obama subject to a foreign power.
As you know the US government can't strip away citizenship of other nations, unless the individual request naturalization.
Aliens have never been under the jurisdiction of the Constitution, to do so would make them citizens without naturalization.

I'm sorry, but play law simply doesn't count.
As Justice Field explained, in the Look Tin Sing opinion, "The jurisdiction over these latter must at the time be both actual and exclusive." (That means complete jurisdiction, birfoon.)
In US v. Ark, the USSC also noted that jurisdiction must be "complete" for a person to be born a citizen under the 14th Amendment. In quoting Elk v. Wilkings the Court observed that such person must be "completely subject to their political jurisdiction, and owing them direct and immediate allegiance’."
Play law doesn't count. Both Wong Kim Ark and Look Tin Sing were understood to be COMPLETELY under the jurisdiction of the United States at birth.
Sorry, play law simply doesn't count.

I rest my case! Obama was born a citizen of his father's nation, the US can't strip that citizenship away and hasn't any claim to him.

Obama mentioned TERROR, but DID NOT call the Benghazi attack on our Embassy and murder of 4 Americans a terrorist attack.
Nonetheless, Romney misstated Obama's statement and in a debate, it's perception, perception, perception, as Romney proved in the 1st one. Take your opponent off-guard by re-stating your image 180 degrees. Content was not important and Romney won the 1st debate by a long long shot.

OBAMA:“And what I want to do is build on the 5 million jobs that we’ve created over the last 30 months in the private sector alone.”
THE FACTS: As he has done before, Obama is cherry-picking his numbers to make them sound better than they really are. He ignores the fact that public-sector job losses have dragged down overall job creation. Also, he chooses just to mention the past 30 months. That ignores job losses during his presidency up until that point. According to the Labor Department, about 4.5 million total jobs have been created over the past 30 months. But some 4.3 million jobs were lost during the earlier months of his administration. At this point, Obama is a net job creator, but only marginally.
Of course he cherry-picks his numbers. He's a politician trying to win re-election. How about Romney stating he'll keep jobs and industry at home even though he's himself exported thousands of jobs to China and Mexico. Talk about cherry-picking! At least, Obama's claim has some truth to it, whereas Romney's, well, he'd have to undo what he did, bring his companies back.

Damn, another Fracking earth quake. This one in Maine!!! Ever since they started fracking everywhere, there have been Fracking earth quakes everywhere!!!
I mean, just look at that Fracking earth quake in Virginia that fracked the Geo. Wash. Memorial and the fracked National Cathedral. Next thing you know, California will frack away from the other 48 contiguous states! Come to think of that, that may not be a fracking bad thing!

Well, 1) she mentioned it first and 2) Obama must've somehow known what he said at the rose garden press conference, no?. But I know, according to salivating and fabricating birthers, that Obama must've had a little get-together with Candy Crowley before the debate, as he did with Chief Justice John Roberts before his 2009 inauguration.
