    I think it's something different. If Obama attacks Bain then all Romney has to say is "Stop cashing those Bain checks Mr. President."

    And Obama can turn it around on Romney by reminding him he has no room the complain about campaign contributions or cashing Bain checks in general.

    My opinion on it is: Obama wanted to focus on small details and build a contrast with Romney. He wanted Romney to come across as someone who has no idea what he is promising. Problem is, Romney barreled over it, took control of the debate, and didnt let things like "facts" slow him down. Both sides repeated factual inaccurate information, but Obama was banking on one or two "revelations" to slow Romney down and Romney just charged on.

    Bain, 47% comments, auto industry bailout....all just missed chances for Obama, who was clearly underprepared.

    Both seemed to playing safe and not wading heavily into the Bains, etc or the private sector is doing fine, etc. even when their seemed to be openings available...and for the most part was boring and disappointing to MSNBC and FOX if thats what you wanted in the debates. Expect that to change in the upcoming Biden/Ryan debate.

    Interesting to see Oblama outside of his bubble of protection and actually having to fends off ligitimate questions. Everybody kisses his ass so much I think he was even taken off gaurd and baffled with real confrontation. He's so far over his head he'd need a ladder to reach the belly of a snake.
    And even more mysterious is that so many believe his crap.....Bad enough he's been adding to the destruction of the US, but his leading from behind in global matters sure is turning out great too. Think he thinks he can get the world blown up before he has to handle the economy. Kind of silly to try to convince people of his ineptitude after 4 years of seeing it and listening to all his excuses and blaming everyone else. President Oblamer
    Well to all you O followers, no worries about the last debate theres an excuse around the corner, lets see how about Bushes fault....or even better it was the altitude in Denver or how about just saying he was better ya that's the ticket.......Next debate start thinking of some good excuses, because not only does he not understand Romney but he doesn't even understand his own friggin policies....

    This isn't an election folks, this is an IQ test for our Country.........

    And here I thought this thread was actually going to stay non-partisan and intelligent. Guess it's too much to ask during election season...

    LOL like your threads are non partisan,
    Sorry but the mis-direction approach isn't working anymore, the folks are not that nieve. Kill the messenger because you have nothing of substance to stand on beside exhuberation over job numbers that are still just as unbelievably pathertic. Great job mister President 7.8% with 2 month left in his term.....We are all so thrilled at a accomplishment wow can't wait for another 4 years,...... and leading from behind in world affairs.....BRILLIANT.....Gee interesting concept leading from behind strange it's taken all these years to figure that one out..........lol
    This says it all when people are satisfied or don't even see mediocrity, and I'm afraid mediocrity is giving to much credit

    Interesting to me that after "Romney won" the big story of the post debate cycle has been about Big Bird.
