It's your second one that shows where your fault lines are buried, not the first.

President Obama will show up when the debate switches to social issues. But, by adopting Rethug-lite economic positions he has little room to distinguish himself. Talk about giving life to a party that should have been vanquished 4 years ago.

Reelect Obama. Why? Because he's no worse than McCain or Romney and he brings us good luck... sort of.

Really, you mean he spent millions of dollars and alot of hard work campaigning and didn't realize what he was getting into?

Obama began campaigning during an already weak economy and then just six weeks before his election, saw it suffer the biggest collapse since the Great Depression. He knew things were bad, but they got a lot worse.

I believe that McCain and Romney would have made things worse. Obama has gotten the US on the slow road to recovery. None of Obama's predecessors could have repaired all the damage in just four years. I think the economy will continue to improve under Obama, so he can start working on reducing the debt.

Your first link doesn't reference Putin or Russia. Your second link gives you away as a full on conservative, not an independent. Breibart.com? C'mon! Yeah, no bias there :roll: Your third link has nothing to do with our economy or national debt and makes you look like the troll that you really are, Meade.

Your link doesn't say anything about the US debt. FAIL!

Anyway, we know we can trust Putin. W. looked into his eyes.

Yowza....

"According to a new Gallup poll of those who watched last week's presidential debate, 72% picked Mitt Romney as the winner, while only 20% thought Barack Obama won.

That''s the biggest win in history, exceeding even Bill Clinton's 42% advantage in his townhall debate over George H.W. Bush (the one where Bush checked his watch)."

That's right, Ned. Romney did even better than George H.W. Bush did in the debate in which Mike Dukakis didn't seem to mind if his wife, Kitty, were raped and murdered.

Edited to add "and murdered".

Kinda funny that the oh-so-smart conservative puking heads haven't realized what really happened at the debate last week:

Oh, I think it's pretty clear from all the follow-up you choose to not pay attention to that Romney hung himself last week, and his prospects for success in the remaining debates is grim at best.

But I'll humor you... wow, he sure whooped Obama the first time!
