    First Presidential Debate thoughts and discussion

    Post 'em here.

    For myself, I agree with Romney's campaign that debates these days are almost exclusively about moments and the storyline that eventually emerges from them. Whether practiced "zingers" does the trick or not is another matter, but the substance of the issues certainly takes a backseat to sighs or jacket bulges or gaffes or the multitude of body language garbage (or Joe the Plumber, which truly ranks as a low moment in presidential debate history, imo).

    But those depressing realities aside, it should be interesting to watch. Obama is easily annoyed and greatly dislikes debating and Romney is pretty much the same, only with a more uncomfortably forced smile and more stammering.

    I'll be watching the debate and post debate discussion on CNN. To those of you watching on MSNBC and Fox News... would you mind posting a summary of their post debate analysis? It would help getting a head start on how this will play out over the next few days.

    Careful, jacking off leads to abortions.

    But those depressing realities aside, it should be interesting to watch. Obama is easily annoyed and greatly dislikes debating and Romney is pretty much the same, only with a more uncomfortably forced smile and more stammering.

    My initial read is: the moderator is losing.
    "Ignorance is not an excuse" were the words Goodell used when describing why those involved in the Saints bounty scandal would not avoid punishment.

    Romney is pivoting off what he said in the past and it is blowing up Obama's debate strategy which is to attack Romney's perceived plan. Romney is coming off better this way even if his math does not compute and it is intentionally vague.

    Love the old red meat PBS argument Republican boilerplate. As if that is breaking the bank.
