Third Debate

PostBy: freetown fred On: Tue Oct 23, 2012 7:36 am

Pretty boring on both sides for the most part. They both acted as much like gentleman as they felt they should. Not much info that was not already out there. Definitely not a tie breaker. Semi brain fart--I'm a firm believer that the the media has screwed up more of our foreign relationships/ situations--could the 2 of these guys just wanted to keep their projected thoughts/plans close to the chest--a movie line comes to mind---"you're not ready for the truth" I know with 2 tours in the Nam--all you had to do was tune in CNN to find out exactly what we would be doing the next day---I do know that both kept getting back to the economy. Just one old guys thoughts

They both played it safe. Neither one was willing to break new ground or risk making a questionable statement or remark. Even so, I still think Romney will win, just not by the same margin that Obama won over McCain in 2008.

I was painting the coal stove so I accomplished more than they did :D If I didn't know so much about Obama's broken promises and socialist policies I would have been impressed.
Everything he said about the middle east was a repeat of what has happened so far- what a mess.
Romney held back and looked presidential.
Obama was losing it when he replied, "It's not 1914, we don't use horses and bayonets, etc" Actually we do, but the point was modern technology etc..
Panetta himself said the proposed military cuts will be devastating.
The prez interrupted, looked like a crazed zulu warrior, got condescending, petulant, expert slick politician though. :D

I saw a sign on a local lawn yesterday, Uncle Sam with fists and the words: "This is America! No redistribution of wealth! You earned it!"

He's a hit with the Twitter crowd of teenage girls & city-dwelling welfare recipients. :roll: Those will be the ones that take him at his word. Fact-checking is not in their vocabulary ... and you couldn't explain it to them if you tried! :lol:

Oh, and by the way, Mr. President:

I kidna feel that Romney was trying to show that he is not another Bush for the Bush haters. But I feel Romney should have been more aggressive towards obammas lack of accomplishments

I changed my mind. I am voting Obomma, I figure he can wipe out the coal industry then I wont have to work 16hrs a day running a business he built for me. Hell then I could sit back and teach my kid how to collect checks for doing nothing.

Now there's a lot of buzz about Amabo's statement that there will be no sequestration in regards to military cuts. The White Hut is already backpedalling on that blatant lie. Just heard that a huge amount of Virginia is in the defense industry, and they're used to being insulated from the recession. now they will feel the hit of this drastic reduction too. And the heinous attempt of Barry to literally bribe defense contractors by offering to pay legal bills if they just simply forget about the WARN act. You are supposed to, by law, give 60 days notice if you're gonna lay people off. Cut defense and increase welfare, the O fans just love it.

Sequestration? That's the law as Congress passed it, not something the President set up, and it applies to lots of stuff beyond military. I think what President Obama was saying is, "Yeah, Congress did it but they will undo it, not even Congress is that irresponsible to let it stay in place."

Funny, I thought President Obama won the 2nd debate going away, and that the 3rd was a draw. Everybody else seems to say the opposite.

On Libya, Syria, Israel, Iran, Egypt, Afghanistan there was a startling repeated pattern:
1. Romney criticized Obama.
2. Obama replied with his position and reasoning.
3. Romney repeated Obama's position and reasoning point by point, in slightly different words, as his own position.
4. Obama criticized Romney for things he had previously said.
5. Romney said he didn't say that.

If you just listened to Obama's position followed by Romney's position, in all these foreign policy areas, you would say it was not a debate at all, just lots of agreement. Later when they went back to mudslinging about domestic policy, neither one said very much that was concrete, just "I can do it better than you can, but I'm not going into any details on how I'm going to do it."

Best part of the whole debate was, I had been up for 18 hours by the time it finished, so I slept well. :P

Well, if concrete is as hard as a wet sponge, then I guess your right -- Obama had lots of concrete things to say ...
