What should Romney do during the debate to get Obama to flip out?
Please, please, please, moderators ask the follow up questions, get the candidates to answer the questions so RoMney has to go beyond his index-card talking points and think past two/three sentences which have ben toooooooterred, rehearsed, etch-a-sketched and rehearsed again.

The Brits were right to compare him to palin.

Yes, those 60 Minutes interviews with ROmney and President Obama were an eye opener weren't they?

Why does ROmney look so uncomfortable, shifty, unconfident and has that deer-in-the-headlights look when he is asked simple (and complicated questions)?

Does he need time to etch-a-sketch, shuffle the index cards to find the right answer?

The two Dem progressive presidents elected were smooth talkers. Talking and twinkling eyes and throwing bull stats out have destroyed us. We live on this crap now. What ever you think of Romney, he will at least crunch numbers and work in the West Wing rooms into the night with his staff. He will take the other party seriously and not demean them like what happened from 2008 to 2010. And there will be at least some input from them only with common sense this time. 320 million people and we elect shallow self serving egotists who appeal to groups of people in America instead of the whole nation. And we don't even pay attention to their under staffs. The ones who do the elitists bidding and their own. Romney will be like Obama. Under their control. I just want some crumbs thrown to me. And Obama has not done that.

Such a pleasant, good-humored, attractive couple. So totally different than plastic, stuffed-shirt Romney and his screechy, whiny blond harridan of a wife.

Let's hope we have the Obamas for four more years. It'd be awful to have to look at the Romneys for even ONE term. Not that they'd go on TV to talk to Americans, of course - they'd be too busy hanging with their rich friends, running her race horse, and acting too good for the rest of us.

Let's face it, America prefers the Obamas. Let's re-elect, shall we?

I think so.:)

All of what is Romney probably some truth. Then watching the current president continuing the movement to a police state of tyranny without even attempting to remove any laws. He will be smiling with his wife with good humor as the camps open up as Americans are declared "terrorists". Scripture tells you men become blinded for their own selfish ways. If not for belief in God, for the ways humans are in history.

Your ridiculous, whiny rant aside, neither CLinton nor Obama are true "progressives." Billy boy established the DLC (Democratic Leadership Conference) in the run-up to running for President as a way of co-opting ReTHUGlican political positions and beating the GOP at its own game, and Obama's followed that same game plan. Both are centrists who co-opt moderate-Right positions, neither is TRULY progressive.

Ralph Nader ran against Gore AND Bush in 2000 and again in 2004 as a TRUE progressive. Use him as a more accurate point of reference.

I'm not in total disagreement, but I hope you were criticizing Bush just as harshly when he began the modern security state post-9/11.

I had no issue what bush until the speeches and laws made about security and wars. he will not be remembered well. He is a traitor like practically every other politician. Obama and the progressives had the power to eliminate it all. They did not. they expanded it. They are the same. No matter who bellows his indignant view on issues. the bottom line is, nothing has changed.

"Smooth talkers" who have more than an index card of talking points and spin are more credible than those who can't answere their way out of a paper bag.

Clinton's speech at the democratic convention showed that facts work - along with smoothness - as he supported his president.

I liked Clinton before the 1992 election. Was tired of the bull and lies from the first Bush. Supported Perot until he quit the race while possibly winning. The fraud came back in getting half the votes and Clinton won. Clinton's first two years defined who he was. He just moderated a bit when the Republicans destroyed Dems in the 1994 election. I never trusted him again. Perot then ran in 1996 and the Lieberman type traitor Dole would have probably beat Clinton without him running. I don't care about your talking points. Talk and walk are two different things. and baby boomers will go down in history as the greatest talkers in human history. Like the 60's movement we are entering a new one and people do not like the changes. As they did not like it back then and before. Only the power is extreme now with the massive government and a massive media that tells you what to do. In th eend the changes will occur because the resources are diminishing. It is just how bad it will get and who suffers the most that needs to be determined.

If I live to be a hundred, I will never understand
the democrates......The press says he is ahead and
will win! Explain please!
His job is forgotten and goes on the view and
Letterman. "More people watching him on the TV
shows"? Democrates watch more and love seeing
him than what he should be doing as a ?Leader????

"Like he said, I don't have the time for world
conditions, I'm running for president".
Only the democrates would agree with that!
IF when you give him another term, will he take
running our country seriously? Willing to bet
YOUR COUNTRY and your life (like our ambassor and
his men) on HIM????? Pretty words and smiles
written on a prompter IS Enough FOR YOU!

HOW LONG WILL WE BE ABLE TO SURVIVE on WORDS?

LIES SPEAK LOUDER THAN "HIS" WORDS and
ACTIONS....

I will never understand someone who says, We
will set and wait until this uprising passes!!!

How long can we depend on a man who simply think
his job is winning this election?

Well now aren't you just the perfect example of unity created and brought to us by the "great uniter" Barack Obama.

THis is exactly what has become the norm in our society since Obama's campaign for the first election in 08. And your post proves you can't blame it on the whites alone for creating all this racial tension in our country. But you will claim that only whites are racist....but then you prove yourself that isn't the case.

From what i have read there are a lot of gums purchased already. And many more to be bought. But fedupwiththemess, outside the killing of individual people living in the cities, the nation will turn completely fascist and a national police force will be officially established. they will be chartered to put down and quell violence with extreme prejudice. And that is not racial. Although it would include many of certain cultural backgrounds. People who have family killed will not disagree with this. I am sorry. You are fighting individuals of a different background who have no real power while you should be paying attention to your government who is the power and the politicians who do the bidding of others. Tragically many of those politicians are of your background. They got their crumbs and power for selling their souls thinking they make a difference. Today all they have left is to yell and scream that others hate while people in general do what they want and have a massive reducement of character, honor and integrity.

What I wrote is neither Obama or Romney unless the economic collapse happens on their watch. Then it does not matter who you voted for.
