    I just got this email from Carville :lol: :lol: :lol:
    This is the Subject line
    “splash of water in the face”

    Well, Jeff and I have dinner with James all the time.

  • Ratboy

    I heard the results of a poll done today as i was listening to the news on the radio in the car. I think it was a CBS poll. I think it was around 45% of undecided thought Romney won, 20 some % thought Obama won, and the remainder was split between tie and not sure.

    If that holds, Romney will be harvesting the votes he needs.

  • Paul

    @ Coffee Steve

    thx for the info

    I’m outta here for the remainder of the afternoon have a good one

  • Coffee Steve

    *Tom Brokaw: If Romney Performed Like Obama Did Last Night ‘It Would Have Been Over’

    Dear Tom, If Obama has another night like Obama had last night, it truly will be over

  • Doug Z

    Coffee Steve

    You were young.

  • Coffee Steve

    Have a good one too Paul

  • Coffee Steve

    CBS also did an Instant count Rats, 56% of previous Obama voters said they were now voting for Romney. BUT, with 32 days to go, that could change

  • Suikostinger

    I hardly ever go to huffington post but I found Stewart DESTROYING hannitys video. Hannity talks about how Obama had a different tone in the video because he was talking to black people…then Stewart shows a video of Romney talking about “hanging out and having bling bling.” and saying “who let tha dogs out!!”

    Sean Hannity promised a look at Barack Obama that you’d never seen before. Only problem was we had seen it before back in 2007. But Tucker Carlson explained: “People say ‘this has already been reported.’ Well, actually, it hasn’t been reported, and I know because I reported on it the first time.”

    @Coffee Steve

    You were young.

    Yes, I was young once, I remember when God formed the Earth and created Adam & Eve, when Eve ate the Apple and then Adam blamed Eve for him eating too, the Lord said ADAM!!! You remind me of President Obama in the future blaming everyone else but yourself :twisted:

  • Suikostinger

    @Coffee

    “CBS also did an Instant count Rats, 56% of previous Obama voters said they were now voting for Romney. BUT, with 32 days to go, that could change”

    Is this what you are referring to? Thirteen percent (13%) of uncommitted voters who watched the debate said their opinion of Barack Obama changed for the better, while 56% said the same about Mitt Romney.

    How does that translate to 56% of previous Obama voters now voting Romney? Am I missing a poll or is this spin….?

  • Coffee Steve

    @Suikostinger

    At this point no one cares about the videos anymore on either side

  • Suikostinger

    @Ratboy

    If that holds, Romney will be harvesting the votes he needs.

    You do realize that just because someone thinks Romney won the debate doesn’t mean they are going to vote for him right? Pretty much every leftie in here thinks Romney won the debate….doesn’t mean they are going to vote for him…..

  • Coffee Steve

    @Suilko

    They did it live last night on air, instant polls aren;t very reliable though

  • Coffee Steve

    @Suikostinger
    doesn’t mean they are going to vote for him…..

    Nope, but they are now more likely too

  • Suikostinger

    To add to what I said, 1 debate doesn’t change anything, I do however love that Romney won the debate. He did a GREAT job. I have a few people that I know that are undecided, that think Romney won the debate by a long shot, but are still unsure of who to vote for.

  • Ratboy

    @ Well, Jeff and I have dinner with James all the time.

    Well then the next time you have dinner please tell him to take me off his didtribution. :lol:

  • Coffee Steve

    @Suikostinger

    but are still unsure of who to vote for.

    I do agree with that, and as I said earlier, its a long way to go. Its not over by any means

  • Suikostinger

    They did a live poll and more than HALF of the people that were going to vote for Obama are going to now completely change their mind set and vote Romney, dumbest poll ever (if there is actually one that is)……I would love to see the poll. I just found and posted a poll with 56% (the same percentage you posted) and it didn’t say that at all.

  • Raz

    It was a very interesting night. It shows what I was always taught: poor preperation produces piss poor preformance. The prez expected to diddly bop in and expected everyone to be thrilled with anything he said. Not the case. Plus his appearance, he looked older then John McCain’s mother-fire the make up man. Then that grey hair has to go girlfriend. Either do a total dye job like Ronald Reagan, a total silver fox like Bill Clinton or the distingished grey at the temples like Mitt Romney. The grey Gorvachov splatch was distracting.
