    I did go into the debate willing to change my mind. It's just that nobody did that.

    I voted for Obama 4 years ago, and up until the "47%" debacle I was going to vote for Romney. So I figured I would give them both a chance to win me back. Didn't happen last night.

    So you were one o the independents that the debates do target. It really is more a salesman job than anything else.

    I'm not sure what anyone was expecting. We talked about his a few days ago. Obama delivers prepared comments like nobodies business, but when he has to speak off the cuff he is the charter member of Hogwarts new house of Stumblebum.

    Which is what it felt like last night. Mitt was mostly better at sticking to his script and keeping the big O on defense.

    I have to give credit to Obama for meeting Romney's family. That must have been awkward.
    I have to ask why you think it was awkward for Obama to meet with the Romney family? I have seen this statement from a couple of people. It doesn't seem to me that Romney hates the Obama's or Vice versa. I see this as a typical political race where they will sling mud every chance they get and the best person wins. I have doubts that these two professionals harbor ill will towards one another. JMO, not trying to be critical of your opinion I really would like to know why you think that.

    I'm pretty sure that they don't hate each other, but undoubtedly their families have taken notice of all the mud slinging. Considering how feirce this election has been, I'd just imagine that it would be weird to meet the family of your opponet.


    Maybe I'm wrong. They all seemed pretty happy.

    Obama called him out on it a couple of times, but did not deliver the message with any "oomph" to make it stick, with the exception of once.
    The Presidents line "Five weeks before the election his big bold idea is, 'Never mind.'"

    Problem is, the President seemed to get a few late starts off the block but failed to follow through. There were a couple times I thought, "OK here we go, now he's going to show us what he's got" then fizzle, fazzle, look down at the podium.....

    No way Jose. If for nothing else, I support the Supreme court justices that Obama would pick over what Romney would pick. I support making the court lean left rather than right.

    I supported Obama and I still do the debate made Romney look like even worse of a candidate.
