Alright, Debate #1 of 3 is coming up at 9 ET. Who do you think is going to come out on top, do you think that this is going to have an impact on the presidential race, and what surprises might we see? This debate is on domestic policy, and is sure to have lots of issues like the economy, gay marriage, and other civil rights like abortion.

it's not like the left-wing doesn't do anything even close to it.

I see blackmail for both and almost certainly both problems wouldn't get so far as to be fulfilled


I agree that there are people who support Obama who probably do the same thing, but the link you gave implied that you were going to actually give an example of one. I dunno, it just seems like your point would have gotten across a lot better if you gave an example that was pretty much the same. (But with the boss being an Obama supporter of course.)

Romney did better in the first one, but Obama did better in the other two. One thing I don't understand about Romney's plan: he says that he's going to make tax cuts, put more money into education and the military, but where is he going to get all of this money if he's making tax cuts?

He says he will get it through closing tax loops; which has been proven by non partisan think tanks to be rot. There is no such thing as a free lunch; spending more whilst saying you can cut back on sources of revenue defies basic arithmetic.

Romney didn't talk about Libya because he realized the futility of accusing te President for what was not his fault and because he realized that making political attacks over the death of a diplomat during the 9/11 truce was a political embarrassment that has been condemned across the aisle.

I thought Romney did about the same in all three and it was just Obama who improved.

That's a very good question. Allow me to answer it in the fashion we could expect Romney to answer that question. You see being a businessman himself he knows how businesses are run and how to manage money. Also this might be a good time to mention this.
