And now that gunner is awake "early" we can get a feel for how the uneducated people feel about the debate.
"Plugs" was the most uneducated person on that stage, even had to have the moderator cover his sorry behind? We truly feel sorry for the State of Delaware, to be represented by such an inept person. Another career politician whom the Taxpayer is required to support for the rest his life.

I never criticize how people look. Well OK, I suppose I maybe did when they sprayed their faces orange and it wasn’t for Halloween. That sort of thing makes me laugh.

In contrast to Mitt Romney’s used-car salesman approach in which he craps in your mouth but does so in a way that makes you thank him and shake his sweaty hand in the end, Barack Obama’s natural and authentic — underscore authentic — style might’ve seemed like he wasn’t as polished. Furthermore, many of my friends on the left lapsed back into this weird chronic amnesia in which they forget how Barack Obama carries himself, how he debates and who he is.
No, the president wasn’t as energetic as he could’ve been. Yes, he was far too kind and deferential to an opponent whose entire goal is to roll back every Obama administration achievement. There was zero chance that President Obama would appear in Denver last night and suddenly reveal himself to be a snappy, idealized Aaron Sorkin character. With a few exceptions, the Obama you watched last night was the same Obama we watched win all three debates against John McCain four years ago, say nothing of all of the various town halls, press conferences and Question Time forums he’s hosted. He’s thoughtful and deliberate and, yes, he sometimes stammers during pauses, but that’s no reflection on his leadership qualities or unrivaled intelligence. For the most part, this is how he’s always comported himself. The problem, however, was that it might’ve come off as too deliberate and thoughtful when contrasted against Romney’s caffeinated morning zoo deejay persona.
This was well written. Agree.

A most interesting development going over the wires after the debate.

The White House scrambled Friday to explain Vice President Biden's confusing statement that "we weren't told" of requests for more diplomatic security in Libya, claiming he was referring only to "himself" and President Obama.

Moderator Martha Raddatz pressed him: "And they wanted more security there."

But Biden responded: "Well, we weren't told they wanted more security there. We did not know they wanted more security again."

State Department officials just one day earlier had acknowledged they knew about, and turned down, requests for more security.

Hey Homer, which shell do you think the ball is under this time?

It's called being assertive and confident when Romney does it. When a democrat does it, well then it's a horse of a different color. It's called rude, interruptive and aggressive. These people go off the rails when the truth and facts are presented. They live in a world of Fox/Limbaugh/Beck distortions and lies. Last night was a shock to em. This is how they react. Like a bunch of little girls. Professional cable news screecher Sean Hannity is shocked that Biden had the audacity to go after Ryan and act "interruptive". I Can’t wait for the clip of tonight’s show when Hannity rudely shouts down a Democratic guest about Biden’s rudeness and “interruptive”(not a word) behavior. Today agressive is a dirty word. Last week, not so much.

Fact is that "over thirty" American individuals were, cough, rescued from the annex, thanks to the GOP loudmouths, we now know that they were working for the CIA as were at least two of the deceased who ran to the building where Stevens was in attempt to rescue him.
Here's a clue__the fkn CIA is not the state department and is not real good about sharing info with anyone, particularly the administration. Perhaps you remember when the CIA informant blew up a half dozen US soldiers in Afghanistan___how long did those details take to surface?
Please do not confuse a CIA informant with the CIA of the United States. Hillary Clinton is speaking out today-trying to cover Bidens' stupidity on the situation. I understand how liberals hate the CIA-they are the scape goat in this administration. Hillary is saying that they are still oblivious to what happened.
And yes the Washington Post is a liberal controlled outlet. They also report to O'bama before publishing.

He asked her, "Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient

Obama frowned, and then asked, "But how do I know the people around

The Queen took a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy, you just ask them to
answer an intelligent riddle."
The Queen pushed a button on her intercom.
"Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?"
Tony Blair walked into the room and said, "Yes, Your Majesty?"
The Queen smiled and said, "Answer me this please, Tony. Your mother

Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answered, "That would be me."
"Yes! Very good," said the Queen.
Obama went back home to ask Joe Biden the same question. "Joe, answer

This must be National Hate Vice President Biden Day.

Obviously everyone thought he did well at the debate.

I know I did, but then I respect him.
