If you believe Obama is responsible for a failure to personally put together a series of vague threats and non-specific warnings into concrete knowledge that an attack was planned for Benghazi on 9/11/12, then George W. Bush was personally responsible for the failures that led to 9/11/01

Here are some points I'd like to make on the debate:

Romney, by his very character, is known to be up front, arrogant, and aggressive. Coming into this debate, he knew he had to play a risky card after things like the 47% in the video and being massively outshone by the DNC. Meanwhile Obama has been comfortably in the lead in polls, so he would want to play very conservatively--passively--in this debate. He felt he only needed to reiterate his same talking-points, which simply came off as being overly redundant. People were looking for something fresh.

Obama cannot be aggressive with Romney, as that will not fit his image/narrative. Obama is far more likeable, and that's very important. He doesn't want to tarnish that.

For showing a more humble side of himself, Romney seriously failed with his little back-and-fourths with Lehrer¬óreally made Romney look bad. If I had to guess, women in particular were likely very turned off by him (I know my girlfriend was absolutely disgusted with his arrogance).

I was watching the ABC pre-debate show and they were talking about how Romney has been practicing for this debate for months with this campaign being his sole focus, not to mention he had fresh practice in the primaries. Despite reelection, Obama still has to run a country.

If the polls stay around the same, I expect Obama to take a passive approach to the debate once again. If they narrow, he might get a little more aggressive, but not a whole lot.

edit: The fact-checking is going to be a fairly crucial component to where this victory goes. As Zee pointed out above, it would be difficult for Obama to plan for the debate around Romney/Ryan's plans because their plans are more or less vague and generally tend reverse when convenient. Meanwhile Romney has a repertoire of talking-points to jab Obama in the side with.

Let's hope we get a moderator that's a little bit more firm in the next round.

The next debate is a town hall style meeting-the presidents strength for ROMNEY if given time can give you a good answer but off the cuff questions he has a problem so as they say dont count em till they hatch..

Imagine a world where PBS has enough to money to make tons of more science and learning-oriented shows like Wishbone and the Magic School Bus and Bill Nye and Carmen SanDiego, only new ones for a new generation of kids, that are entertaining AND educational and awesome.
Those shows taught me that learning is fucking awesome.

If you think this election is strictly about abortion which the obamacrats want people to believe you are an easily manipulated fool.It is about the Economy which obama is a total failure and the safety of Americans which obama is a total failure and its about our freedoms which obama is going to destroy.

Every time you say 'I oppose a woman's right to abortion, even in cases of rape,' what you're also saying is 'I believe that a man who rapes a woman has more of a right to control a woman's body and life than that woman does.
