    Can’t we all just get along?

    I wonder if the president was in the debate to win it or to find out what Mitt really thinks. The preisent did not come after Mitt with Bain or The 47%, why? Something is going on. I wonder.

  • Dave

    Mitt mopped the floor with Obama, he can’t make a case for his failed policies over four years…

  • Larry

    Ooouuuccchhhh!!

  • Coffee Steve

    Impressive numbers for Fox and CNN, I am sokewhat surprised MSNBC did not get higher numbers than they did, but still respectable

  • Coffee Steve

    ^somewhat

  • Doug

    Eyepopping numbers for FNC.

  • dave

    Looks like someone is impersonating me.Obama told the truth last night and Romney lied his a-s off.What a low life scum Romney is.

  • Doug

    Although I guess the debate numbers don’t really matter because they’re not selling ads during that time.

  • Hillbilly

    We have a Blue Lady siting. :shock:

  • Hillbilly

    TwilightZone – I just realized I referred to Faith3 as a she, but I have no idea if he/she is a she. I’ve been assuming Faith3 is a she.

    —————————–

    100% female. ;)

  • Hillbilly

    Coffee Steve – The scary thing is? I voted for that boob against Bush. Gore had it all, he followed Clinton (Whom I voted for as well) and the economy was doing well, no big wars, Employment was good etc. And the man just simply flat blew it.

    ——————————–

    Huh? Didn’t Bush “inherit” a recession?

  • Ralph Hahn

    Not only did Fox News Network beat all cable and broadcast networks covering the debate last night, it beat its broadcast network FOX.

    FNC already won with 10,421,389 on cable, add another nearly seven million people to the above, people who watched the debate on Fox Broadcasting. That’s about 17.4 million people. Fox News won total viewers and demos 25-54.

    DOWN Boy, DOWN!!

    Yes, sorta, When Bush took office the economy had started to hit the skids, which oddly enough, no one remembers, But at the time, I thought Gore would do a better job. As The song says By Gary Lewis and the playboys, “I Won’t make That Mistake Again”

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Coffee Steve: Didn’t you mean that you voted for that boob against McCain?
    Looks like the big lie of 2008 (a vote for McCain is a vote for Bush) is still around and even confusing fine conservative folks like yourself. :)

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ralph

    LOL.. I was a long time Democrat before the Harry Reid’s and Nancy Pelsoi’s took it over, sad I know, but true, but became an Independant (Right Leaning) once I grew up :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    Jumpin Joe Biden JUST did it again

    *BIDEN: ‘Yes, We Do’ Want to Raise Taxes By a Trillion Dollars…
