Romney is in panic mode and it showed. His only hope is to try and sway people with these debates since he hasn't been able to it with his candidacy. He came across as an angry robot and unlikable, "the guy that fired you" as Obama so well put it.

Since: Apr 12

Romney the Lying Goon promised to kill BigBird and fire the moderator tonight.

He wants the money for PBS in his own pocket in the form of tax breaks. Romney hates little children.

Romney's hit squad:
Kill Big Bird immediately
Kill Medicare in 2016
Kill Social Security asap
Kill the Middle Class soon thereafter
Kill Democracy at any time
"Kill Big Bird"? Really? Exaggerate much? You progressives are really, really funny. PBS has fund raisers 4 times a year, why on earth should our tax $$$ support them as well? As for the rest of your crap, Biden himself has admitted that the middle class has been "buried since 2008". Ummm, who has been President since 2008?

Romney doesn't need to "panic" as you say. He has to articulate his case to the American people. Of course, that is assuming that you will listen to what he has to say. Not thinking you are willing to do that now.

Granted even democrats are saying that Obama came out flat and that Romney probably scored a win in last night's debate. So, I'm changing my vote.........

These libtards cannot admit when they are just flat out wrong....even when it's obvious to the whole world. It was a substantive debate and Obama was schooled. Any level headed person agrees.

Obama doesn't pick winners and losers, he just picks the Losers...BOOM

people just left of center saw a person they believe would be a competent president...unlike the current one.

Jennifer Psaki is on tv right now and she's flat out a looney tune...sounds verbatim of what Oregon sux just said.speaking about talking points...you all are just embarrassing.

Here's what you all don't seem to get, you are not mainstream, you are not reasonable, and your guy is INEPT.

The country saw a viable replacement last night. This wasn't about talking points or practice, this was about your guys ideas are wrong for our country, and have proven disastrous everywhere they've been tried.

Bo.en11You don't have to "like" either candidate. You have to vote on who can do the job! Who can create jobs? Who has proven he can work bi-partisan and get things done for the American people? Who knows how to manage a budget and debt? Both sides probably told some lies. But only one of them told lies 4 years ago and has proven he can't do the job. He got "schooled" in the debate. Why do you lose a debate? Because you don't KNOW the injects and topics well enough. You can't hide that in debates. In November Obama gets his first job evaluation and we get the opportunity to fire him for poor job performance.
amen!!

are bob and Artie the same person too...awesome. Good trick.

Did you watch your guy get bitch slapped all over the stage last night...now your guy looks weak on foreign policy...weak on domestic policy....and our guy looks presidential.

Oh and by the way, I was always for Romney, even last election cycle. You may think the tea party is nothing but Ron Paul followers but you would be wrong. I've been telling you for sometime the tea party started as democrats and republicans watching the government of pelosi Reid and bush spending trillions....

Those people see Romney as a viable presidential option....and they see Obama as weak and failing

Romney sounds like a petulant little kid. He rudely bashed Lehrer and said that his job would be wiped out along with all of PBS - what a jerk Romney is.
Romney then got hammered time and again by both Obama AND Lehrer over Romneycare-Obamacare and was found, yet again, to be a lying scumbag.
Romney is also deep into the Nixonian flop sweat. He also can't wipe that weird smile off his face. Has he been crying again? He looks weirdly moist.
Not even your beloved liberal media would back that drivel up, SUX. Not even the most liberal would or could deny the complete thrashing Romney put on Obama last night. In fact, they've been in full tantrum over Obama's performance, up to and including CNN promising this embarrassment wouldn't happen next time. LOL

The liberal media is in full panic after that debate lashing. And we haven't even seen Paul Ryan take that idiot Joe Biden to school.

I'm not saying these debates will be enough to sink reality into the brainwashed Obama voters, but hopefully the common-sensed independents will be watching with open minds.

BTW: Romney never said he would wipe out PBS, you moron. He said he'd cut the taxpayer funding of it, which makes up less than 5% of it's backing.

I actually felt kinda sorry for Barry.As future President Romney spoke,Barry had a sad look on his face,knowing his partying days on the taxpayer dime will soon be over.No more executive orders and blatantly trashing the USA Constitution.

But I'm sure Barry has his Presidential pardon list of terrorists and other thugs all drawn up.Can't wait to see that one.

OK lets put it like this (if you watched the debate), who would you rather have confront Iran, or Russia, or make a trade deal that will be to our (USA) advantage in the meeting rooms.?

Or even go with you down to a used car lot and help you decide buying a car, or go with you to a bank to set up a loan, or buy land.

I sure wouldn't pick Obama, eeeeuew.

Hmm, this is going to put the pressure on Obama from here on out, gonna be popped like a big zit.
You can only lie and spin and get pampered by the media for so long and not have to prove anything about how good or bad you done while people are going to judge you by casting a vote for you.

This kinda ruin's about anything Obama says at his rallies because people will now have doubt.

Stand Up America Now will be coming to Edsel Ford High School, in Dearborn, Michigan, to protest the bullying of non-Muslim students. This is typical of the Islamic population as it grows in numbers.

As we see the outbreaks of violence in the Middle East concerning the film "Innocence of Muslims", here in America and in western countries, we see a definite lack, again, of Islam condemning those terrorist attacks.

Let us join together, stand up and protect our rights in America of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press.



On October 11, we will be in Toronto, Canada, where there is also a Muslim problem.







Location of Dearborn protest:
Edsel Ford High School
20601 Rotunda Drive
Dearborn, MI 48124
