    I for one am looking forward to the foreign policy oriented debate.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    By a NOSE? Were you watching the same debate I was?

    I'm also looking forward to Ryan v. Biden.

    Big Bird needs to get a job and stop relying on the taxpayers to pay his way.

    TGND thinks Biden will wipe the floor with Ryan and I think the very opposite. I just think it's gonna be an entertaining debate.

    I agree with you. I can't imagine Biden wiping the floor with anything except a mop.

    Re: Who Won?

    I would say Mitt Romney generally came across as more confident and better prepared for the debate, but Obama probably got better soundbites to use in attack ads. I'm not sure it was a good idea for Romney to express his bewilderment about Obama's claim that businesses can get tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, by joking that maybe he needs to hire some better accountants.

    Overall, the whole debate was a waste of two hours of my life. Fortunately I wasn't expecting very much in the first place.

    Honestly last time around I thought he wiped the floor with Palin, but obviously that's not saying much. Ryan will indeed be a much more formidable opponent even if I think half of the stuff that comes out of his mouth is complete BS.

    Big Bird is owned by Disney and isn't hurting for money by any stretch of the imagination.
