Presidents often struggle in first debates

Oct 2, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: USA Today

When President Obama steps onto the debate stage Wednesday night in Denver, he'll seek to avoid what might be called "incumbents opening debate syndrome." Presidents seeking re-election have often struggled in their first debates: Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush.

Mitt is going to win because he has prepared a long list of zingers to use against Obama. I understand right after they open the debate, no matter what the question is, Mitt is going to read the first zinger off the cards, "Hey Barack, the Jerk Store called and they want their you back." That will means a sure win for Romney in this debate as long as he remembers to keep going back to the zingers 3X5 cards.
Have you ever considered giving up trying to predict things? Obama got his assed kicked from here to Altoona in the debate. Stop listening to gubmint altered news like MSNBC. It makes you sound like an idiot like the rest of the gullible democrats.

Good heavens! Was that our President who got his butt kicked in Denver? Jeez, are we in trouble. Obama is the guy we're trusting to deal with all the REAL tyrants out there in the world, yet he can handle a simple debate on domestic issues with a state Governor?! WTF???

I think what we saw was the real Obama: confused, clueless, weak, uniformed and just generally incompetent. We elected someone with no experience, no record and no accomplishments. He's still without experience and still has no accomplishments. He's got a record now though. And it sucks!

Obama was so confused and meek he couldn't remember his lines. Is was especially pitiful when he ask the moderator to change the subject to something else and to ask different questions.

This shows you why Obama don't meet with world leaders, they can't quit laughing at him.

Bad news...

7 Election: 7-Eleven Coffee Poll Goes Overwhelmingly For Obama

The Huffington Post | By Alice Hines Posted: 10/03/2012 4:10 pm EDT Updated: 10/03/2012 4:57 pm

Mitt Romney should take a big gulp -- 7-Eleven shoppers have already decided on President Obama.

According to 7-Eleven's "7-Election" poll, which allows coffee drinkers to pick a blue cup for Obama or a red one for Romney, Obama is leading with 60 percent of "votes." Romney currently has 40 percent.

President Obama has held the lead since the first day the poll opened on September 6, said Margaret Chabris, a 7-Eleven spokeswoman. That day, Obama received 57.2 percent of cups, compared to Romney's 42.8 percent.

Though the poll calls itself "unabashedly unscientific," it has never been wrong in its three-election history. Six million cups were cast for candidates in each of the past polls, according to a press release.(In contrast, the sample size for a typical Gallup poll is 1,000 adults.)

7-Eleven, the world's largest retailer by number of stores, has managed to expand successfully to 16 countries by cleverly harvesting sales data in real time and adjusting each store's assortment to local tastes. The same technology allows the chain to track purchases of red and blue cups and report the data to its website the same day.

In the Philippines, where 7-Eleven has roughly 750 stores, the company also polled shoppers with soda cups printed with pictures of the country's nine presidential candidates in 2010. The poll correctly predicted that Benigno Aquino III would win the election. Originally founded in Dallas, 7-Eleven is now based in Japan, where its official name is Seven & I Holdings.

Of course, the poll is also good marketing for 7-Eleven. In 2004, hot beverage sales grew by 6.5 percent per store per day during the second U.S. "7-Election," Jim Keyes, 7-Eleven's then-president and CEO said in a call with analysts.

I can understand why BO seemed a bit befuddled during the debate. Which of Romney's policies does POTUS combat: Romney's "on record" policy, or his policy du jour?

I'm on your side. I'm just a bit afraid that Obammy was baiting Bishop Rmoney, allowing him to talk too much. Bishop Rmoney ended up saying more lies than were necessary. There's blowback as a result. Obammy lost the battle, but seems to be winning the war.

You think you're taking the macro-view, but you actually not. IF Obama wins "the war" (meaning the election), he still loses. We ALL lose in the long run (the real "macro-view"). Because Obama's "plan" of borrowing from our grandchildren and the Chinese to fund endless give-away programs can have NO other end but a huge disaster.

Obama has no special powers that will allow him to spend trillions of dollars we don't have without consequences. Eventually, we'll pay for his foolishness and incompetence. Obama could win the election, true, but he will still eventually fail. There's absolutely no doubt about that. Even he admits that the debt cannot continue to spiral ever upwards!

Obama will fail because there is no such thing as a free lunch and even the US economy is not in that fantasy category known as "too big to fail". NOTHING is too big to fail.

You are so right. We need Bishop Rmoney for his business experience, like Bush. Let's take the country back to the Bush policies.

Snow White, Superman and Pinocchio are walking along.

They see a sign: "Contest for World's Most Beautiful Woman." Snow White goes in, later comes out smiling, wearing a crown.

They walk along and see another sign: "Contest for World's Strongest Man." Superman goes in, later comes out smiling, wearing the belt.

They walk along and see a sign: "Contest for World's Greatest Liar." Pinocchio goes in, later comes out with his head down crying.

"Who the hell is Mitt Romney?" Pinocchio sobs.

LOL! Good one. But you forgot the last line:

They continued down the road a bit and came to another sign: "Contest for World's Most Indebted Nation". Miss America went in and came out with the Blue Ribbon and smiling from ear to ear. Then Obama raped her, mortgaged her kids and also her stole her grandkid's inheritance, all to pay for more give-away programs and buy votes. She was left with a ragged, cum-stained Clintonesque blue dress, a $16 trillion tab and no job but part-time burger flipping.

It was a frickin' horror movie!

This is HORRIBLE!! Here's the PROBLEM, the stock market believes the lie of the Dummycraps!!!!

Stocks rally on drop in jobless rate to 7.8%
Adam Shell, USA TODAYShare

Story Highlights

Stocks rally as unemployment rate hits lowest level since January 2009

If rally holds, Dow could make new 5-year high

Lower jobless rate could help Obama's presidential chances

12:27PM EST October 5. 2012 - NEW YORK -- The stock market rally powered by a drop in the unemployment rate to 7.8%, its lowest level since January 2009, has the Dow Jones industrial average and S&P 500 stock index on pace to close at fresh five-year highs.

The stock market, fueled in large part by a Federal Reserve-powered stimulus, headed into Friday's trading session just shy of the bull market highs it notched in September. If its gains continue, benchmark indexes will close at new highs.

The Dow Jones industrial average, which is up 11.1% this year and at levels not seen since December 2007, blew past a new cycle high in morning trading. Similarly, the Standard & Poor's 500 index, which closed yesterday at 1461.40 is trading well above a new bull market level high.
