Work your way back from "mispell"...
Work your way back from Obama......oops no phone.

Obama has given the same speeches and campaigned since elected......When he leaves the White House in January, he will have finally done something to help the contry.

Obama to the Presidency is what the Volt is to GM......expensive and a failure.

Denver, Colorado (CNN)– Two-thirds of people who watched the first presidential debate think that Republican nominee Mitt Romney won the showdown, according to a nationwide poll conducted Wednesday night.

According to a CNN/ORC International survey conducted right after the debate, 67% of debate watchers questioned said that the Republican nominee won the faceoff, with one in four (25%)saying that President Barack Obama was victorious.

"No presidential candidate has topped 60% in that question since it was first asked in 1984," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
While nearly half of debate watchers said the showdown didn't make them more likely to vote for either candidate, 35% said the debate made them more likely to vote for Romney while only 18% said the faceoff made them more likely to vote to re-elect the president.

More than six in ten (60%) said that president did worse than expected, with one in five (20%) saying that Obama performed better than expected. Compare that to the 82% who said that Romney performed better than expected. Only one in ten felt that the former Massachusetts governor performed worse than expected.

The sample of debate-watchers in the poll was 37% Democratic and 33% Republican. Sound Familiar.
"That indicates that the sample of debate watchers is about four points more Democratic and about eight points more Republican than an average CNN poll of all Americans, which shows their bias. Makes you wonder where the independents……..were.

The poll suggests that the debate didn't change opinions of the president. Forty-nine percent of debate watchers said before the debate that they had a favorable opinion of Obama, and that number didn't change following the debate.
(damage control)

It was pretty much a similar story for Romney, whose favorable rating among debate watchers edged up just two points, from 54% before the debate to 56% after the debate.

The economy dominated the first debate and according to the poll, and by a 55%-43% margin, debate watchers said that Romney rather than Obama would better handle the economy. On the issue of taxes, which kicked off the debate, Romney had a 53%-44% edge over Obama. And by a 52%-47% margin, debate watchers said Romney would better handle health care, and he had the edge on the budget deficit by a 57%-41% margin.

Debate watchers thought Romney was more aggressive. Fifty-three percent said Romney spent more time attacking his opponent. Only three in ten thought Obama spent more time taking it to Romney.

By a 58%-37% margin, debate watchers thought Romney appeared to be the stronger leader.

Au contraire, since pattie and barebutt are the same along with three others they are busy fighting with their other three names to see who won.

I didn't watch it: Like everyone else in American, it didn't and wouldn't change my vote.

Gee, Dumbo: no one is going to keep up with your copy & paste off topic, cross posted DumboSpam... but you still haven't found someone who changed their mind one way or another.

And you still need ten million votes, ScrotumSniffer.

I won't disrespect you by calling you names, but to answer your question- no it didn't change my mind. I watched it purely for the entertainment value.

What makes you think you are any different from the 60+ million others who watched it who have already made up their minds?

You're righteous indignation is blinding you and causing you to lash out at people. Debates have winners & losers. Romney won this one, whether you agree with him or not.
Each candidate have economists that are advising them. Economics is simply an interpretation of raw data. There are basically two predominate economic theories that are floated every election cycle. The raw data by each candidate.
For example the new jobs report just came out the Department of Labor, 114,000 jobs were created and the unemployment rate stands at 7.8 percent. Each candidate is going to interpret those numbers differently. Obama is going to say the unemployment rate is going down because we're creating jobs. Romney is going to say the unemployment rates going down because more people are dropping out of the workforce. See, different interpretations.
Don't let your rage cloud your reasoning ability.

I guess you missed the line where I said I did not care who "won" and who "lost"and I *did not watch the event* and said so before the debate: it (would not) changed no votes, what very little impact it will have will come as the spin doctors point to statements made (mostly by Romney) that conflict with earlier or later statements.

No votes will change; the bigger news already is the jobs report.
