Debate Pre-Thread

I gotta tell ya, I thought it started at 8.

Here's the news: It doesn't. 9.

So I was counting down the minutes at 7:45.

Anyway, prognostications?

Via Breitbart, Andrea Mitchell will be serving as NBC's "Fact Checker," so we're covered on that front, baby.

George Stephanopolous, who has declared the Democrat the victor in 8 of the 9 debates he's covered as a "journalist," will do ABC's wrap up, so, again, Gold Standard.

At NR, the media's storyline of the night is already set.

12 Posted in the last thread, because I have no patience and some ADD.
I just thought of Romney's best opening:

R: Mr. President, I wish you a happy 20th anniversary. Clearly our advance staffs could have done a better job of scheduling. We could have done this last night.
O: Well, thank you, Governor. Or tomorrow night.
R: Tomorrow, and move another football game? American's take that stuff seriously. This is just a presidential debate.

Game-set-match MITT.

I can dream, can't I?

I know this is not the debate open thread but with my ADD I would forget in the next 40 minutes.

Posted by: Bizarro Barack at October 03, 2012 08:27 PM (9otrl)

48 Recommendation for Romney (take with a grain of salt, since I wasn't exactly his biggest fan during the primaries) -

Avoid your tendency to 'count coup.' You may have a witty retort or rejoinder, but don't look around after you deliver it expecting applause. Employees laugh and clap when you're a CEO because they're afraid of you. Same goes for your lickspittle. Just keep going and don't draw attention to them. They will be more effective.

Soetero is going to try to make this dull and get people to change the channels. You have to make sure when you get the camera you light the place up. Otherwise people are going to change the channels and the media will tell them you lost.

The MFM will declare Obama the winner.
The coveted independents will be watching Honey-boo-boo and base their votes on election day by the random movements of dust motes in a sunbeam.
Morons here will drink heavily and weep for the Republic.

73 I STILL say that Romney connects with people better than the chattering class says. He obviously loves his grandkids and THEY don't have the sour faces that Obama's kids do. His grown boys are all on board with the campaign and tweet funny stuff which shows how much they love the guy.

He does his own laundry, doesn't have a lavish mansion (except for the car elevator which is something most morons would have) and likes to balance the books.

He's a 1959 dad (a great era, speaking as someone who is 64) and uses those old-fashioned terms such as "Gosh darn it!" and "Gee whiz!"

he's not a hipster. He's a 65-year-old grandfather who is in good shape and knows how to fix the country.

So let's all pray he is able to withstand the forces of Evil, led by SCOAMF!

OTOH, the Lightbringer only needs to show up and basically bring his D game, because, well, he hasn't debated in a while and the bar is already set low. He can screw up and still do great! Romney will wipe the floor with him. The MSM will declare Barky the winner anyway and that's all the low info voters will hear. The ones who won't watch to begin with. I think I've got it.

Depends on what's making it cloudy. With a filter, it should stay pretty clear....unless you're lighting it a lot, in which case you can get a green tinge from algae. Is your filter working properly?

Also note that the #1 cause of cloudy water isn't the water -- it's the inside of the glass. See if a little section wipes clean.

Are the Ranger's done, or just a wildcard?

Posted by: jaimo at October 03, 2012 08:34 PM (d8hzE)

Wildcard - gotta play somebody Friday night, either the Yanks or the Orioles. But all we needed was one measly win in the last week to tie up the West and we couldn't do it. EPIC choke...

defend us in battle.

Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of
the devil.

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;

and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -

by the Divine Power of God -

cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,

who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.

I'm very proud of Romney's performance. Excellent job.

But Obama did well, too.

Lehrer, overall, did a good job. I have no particular objections.

This won't change anything for people committed or leaning toward either candidate.

For that small group who really are uncommitted, this might sway them toward Romney.

Posted by: Scobface at October 03, 2012 10:41 PM (IoNBC)

165 I want to be clear that I think Romney won the debate. He was much more focused on facts and less on empty rhetoric.

Posted by: Scobface at October 03, 2012 10:45 PM (IoNBC)

166 Romney won. I am biased. I went to MSNBC and they were hysterical and banging tables with angst. This confirmed my analysis.

Am going to post this also in above live blog link, which I wish transcript was available and sorry I missed...

Anyway, if any of you see a youtube, near the second question or so, where Obama starts the subject and says "Yo" I want that plastered over the Internet.
If he had to start and not defend something Romney said, well, he was pathetic. He got in the weeds at one point over Medicaid and tossed around a percentage. He was simply blabbering at that point and my husband and I were cracking up.

Romney did really, really well.
