Don't miss it.

Last night we were privileged to have had our First Lady so elegantly explain to us why we should re-elect her husband.

Tonight, we are privileged to have the most popular President in our lifetime tell us why we shouldn't vote for Willard.

..... and later, we'll chat!

He dropped the ball as expected. He sounded ridiculous, most of his "facts" were wrong and his proposals didn't add up. I guess the dems are back to using their fuzzy math like back in the Al Gore days.

BAAAAAAAA HAA! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You righties can't touch this!

You wasted your convention talking about Obama instead of Romney, don't be hate'n just because you decided to run the only man in the country who could be considered a bigger joke than W.

Bill Clinton walked out in front of America last night and schooled voters on the two paths they are faced with choosing from.

The choice is clear.

And once this election is over, I will probably retire as a Topix poster with a smile on my face.

I don't think I can sit and read another four years of you righties snivelling like a bunch of babies with dirty diapers.

Romney will fight to address the issues facing minorities. Like the one percent for example.

CHAT TIME,,,

WASHINGTON—It's a fact of life in Washington that what one party considers a principled stand, the opposition considers pigheadedness. Compromise? That's the other guy's problem.

But when former President Bill Clinton took the stage at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday, he portrayed President Barack Obama as a pragmatic compromiser who has been stymied at every turn by Republicans. There was no mention of the role that the president and the Democrats have played in grinding compromise to a halt on some of the most important issues facing the country.

That was among the lines by the former president and others Wednesday that either cherry-picked facts or mischaracterized the opposition. A look at some of them:

———

CLINTON: "When times are tough, constant conflict may be good politics but in the real world, cooperation works better.... Unfortunately, the faction that now dominates the Republican Party doesn't see it that way. They think government is the enemy and compromise is weakness. One of the main reasons America should re-elect President Obama is that he is still committed to cooperation."

THE FACTS: From Clinton's speech, voters would have no idea that the inflexibility of both parties is to blame for much of the gridlock. Right from the beginning Obama brought in as his first chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, a man known for his getting his way, not for getting along.

One of the more high-profile examples of a deal that fell apart was the outline of a proposed "grand bargain" budget agreement between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner in 2011.

The deal would have required compromise from both sides. It slashed domestic spending more than most Democrats wanted and would have raised some taxes, which most Republicans oppose.

Boehner couldn't sell the plan to tea party factions in the House or to other conservative activists. And Obama found himself accused of going too far by some Democratic leaders. The deal died before it ever even came up for a vote.

In another instance, Obama appointed a bipartisan group, known as the Simpson-Bowles Commission, to recommend ways to fix major fiscal problems like Social Security and Medicare. The commission issued its recommendations but fell three votes short of formally endorsing them. And Obama mostly walked away from the report. He later incorporated some of the less contentious proposals from the report into legislation he supported.

But that ensured the tough compromises would not get made.

The problem with compromising in Washington is that there are few true moderates left in either party. The notion that Republicans are the only ones standing in the way of compromise is inaccurate.

———

CLINTON: Clinton suggested that Obama's health care law is keeping health care costs in check.

"For the last two years, health care spending has grown under 4 percent, for the first time in 50 years. So, are we all better off because President Obama fought for it and passed it? You bet we are."

THE FACTS: That's wishful thinking at best. The nation's total health care tab has been growing at historically low rates, but most experts attribute that to continued uncertainty over the economy, not to Obama's health care law.

Two of the main cost-control measures in Obama's law—a powerful board to keep Medicare spending manageable and a tax on high cost health insurance plans—have yet to take effect.
