    TODers: Here is your assignment tonight:

    DO NOT LET THE MEDIA TELL YOU WHAT YOU SAW. DO NOT ALLOW THEM SET THE NARRATIVE.

    Already, according to Chris Matthews, PBO must “eviscerate” Romney to win. Otherwise he loses the election. Shit like that MAKES ME SICK. Apparently, all Romney has to do is show up and he wins.

    MSNBC has turned into a sports channel this afternoon, and we are going to be watching a heavyweight boxing match on a GLADIATORIAL SCALE instead of a Presidential Debate.

    Everyone needs to push back on TWITTER. If you’re not on Twitter – SIGN UP NOW. Do not expect others to speak for you. We need EVERYONE fighting back if they decide to do what they did during the first debate.

    FUCK THAT.

    FACTS, TRUTH, SUBSTANCE, and INTEGRITY MATTER.

    Romney should have been called out for the lying sociopathic bully on speed that he was.

    I am OVER the press insisting The President Of The United States do their job for them.

      You’re right Tally. Let’s tweet Matthews and co like mad. Not with anger because of they are very think-skinned and they could react in doubling-down. But like in your own tweet, just asking them to remember that truth and integrity matter.

    • October 16, 2012 at 7:16 pm

      Well said, Tally – I’m sick of these Chuck Todd types. Just the fact that Candy Crowley is the moderator is disgusting. I really feel for PBO – what a ton of pressure has been put on his shoulders.

      I am so glad someone said this!!! I was just telling my sister that Chris Matthews and his guests sounded like the Super Bowl pre-game show and I turned it off. I can’t imagine what it’s like at CNN. Families in danger of losing Earned Income Tax Credit, mortgage deduction, healthcare deductions, etc. have a vested interest in the outcome of the election. The MSM does not. They’ll be fine no matter how this comes out so it’s just a game to them.

      Disgusting.

    Good afternoon Chips and TOD family. It has been quite awhile since I have been able to comment here. But I want to be with you for this debate tonight. I have great confidence in the President but not with Romney or with Candy Crowley. Things here in MT are very strange. Due to many reasons I am not able to volunteer except for making phone calls from home. I have several friends who have tried to go to the local OFA office and they say they are only calling other states because they know they will loose MT. That has really made us all mad. How can they write off all of us supporters here in MT. Beside our Senate, House, Govenor races are all very close and it is very important for them to be Democratic. I know OFA is doing a great job in other states but those supporters here in MT feel they shouldn’t give up on us. I know we are only 3 delegates but oh well. I have to be so careful with most of the people I work around. They are mostly Repubs. I want to say something but I also want to keep my work. At least nothing has been too bad.

    14,000,000 hits!!!!!! This is such a special place. I was so thankful to be here after BWD went on hiatus. One thing I have been able to do is to join the tweeter brigade! It is so easy to retweet from my droid. Thanks for all for keeping the information flowing. We will win this election and I feel we will win the Senate and the House.

    As with most of us, coming here has kept us all sane!!! Thank you all for being the wonderful people you are and for Chips keeping this place going. Now to get ready for the debate.

        Can’t wait to see Obama take charge tonight. Romney won’t know what hit him!

    I just got this thick envelope in the main from the President Obama today, and on the front of the letter it said, “Donald, This is our last campaign together.” it knocked the wind out of me for a second. I’m really trying hard to stay focused, but already I miss this man. I remember as a young man reading “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” and how that book changed my life to a certain extent. But what Obama has meant to me is something that is hard to explain. I feel emotionally connected to him.

    I notice the dow was up again today – on good reports from business – this is the result of democrat policy.

      I have recommended this site to two friends in the last few days, who also get all stressed out over what they hear. I hope they too come to this place and read what is REALLY going on.
      I have learned a lot on this site, for one thing I’ve learned about polls, and about crosstabs, and skewing, and reliability and non-reliability, and credibility….of polls. Most people take them at face value, I used to. So, I am thankful for this site for many reasons, the education being a big one!!! I appreciate the work that so many of you do, and the explanations you write. A number of you could be “Secretary of Explaining Things!”

    Oh my goodness, it seems the minutes are ticking by so slowly!!!!!!!!!!! I want this debate to be done with already! I feel like i am on pins and needles. On Fb there is this group named something like “I am happy every morning to wake up when barack obama is President.” i may not have that just right but the title is something like that. Anyway…I UNLIKED that group today believe it or not because of some ridiculous thing they posted that I did not like. I was then later trying to find the group again in a search to send them a message of disapproval and I mistakenly clicked on another fb site with a similar name but it was not a supportive group for POB. The front page of that group had pics of its members up and i kid you not it was all older smiling white guys! i was so disgusted. I am a white woman even…but i do not, not, not connect with that group whatsoever. Yuck! aAl i could think of was that t-shirt seen at a Romney rally within this past week. Sorry about venting….but I am so disgusted with that segment of these United States.

      Of course, newcomers and lurkers are a reminder to regulars that whatever position the President takes in this debate is the right and ONLY position to be taken. He is our leader into ‘battle’ tonight, and we are following blindly like we would on an actual battlefield. We are not pausing to question the commander in chief! We are not explaining him to anyone tonight! We are not telling him HOW he should have answered or WHAT he should have answered! WE ARE SOLDIERS SURROUNDING HIM SO THAT NONE CAN GET TO HIM OR TAKE HIM DOWN BECAUSE HE HAS THE LITTLE ATTACHE CASE WITH THE SOLUTION! (Teehee! Can you tell that I haven’t watched an action or war movie in decades? :lol:)

    Everyday lurker here, don’t get opportunity to comment frequently as Chips is like Speedy Gonzales with her blog, I can never keep up and I can’t get on the website at work but I wanted to add my congratulations on surpassing 14,000,000 hits. I was referred here from HuffnPuff when the hits were no more than 3,000,000 and I hit the site everyday without fail and get inspired by the fabulous pictures and uplifting news articles and crack up over the political cartoons and some of the TOD hilarious antics and comments. Truly Chips I don’t know what I’d do if this site wasn’t here for us. I have complete faith in our President and know that he will blow Robney’s butt out of the water with his quiet calm and intelligence…

    The first debate I came here to watch while participating in this blog site. I was very disappointed as it left me feeling so upset at the discussion and accusations. I also had on MSNBC most of the day and hated their criticisms.

    The second debate I just watched C-Span and MSNBC, then came here later. Everyone on our side was happy so no problem.

    This third debate I am so nervous as all the chatter has made me think it may have a similar outcome with Dems, not good enough. I have not watched MSNBC today because of the expectations. I think I will just watch C-Span alone and come here later. Am worried but praying hard. Love PBO whichever way it goes. I am one of the people that does not think you can call a liar a winner.

    I am going to be walking the dog during the debate (it’s on at 6 here.) I’ll check in here every once in a while. I don’t have a tv, but even if I did I’d adhere to my #1 rule of sanity: never listen to people who are paid to talk. This particular election seems far zoo-ier than others in my long life, a real circus, and I attribute that largely to the media. I can’t let the crazy energy take over, and, by coming here instead of anywhere else, I keep relatively calm, since I do get infected when anxiety is posted here.

    I woke up this morning with a great feeling of calm. I’m not sure where it came from. The sense that I’ve had since 2008, that Barack Obama is an avatar, was especially strong. He is destined to bring us into the future. He has been called. Avatars don’t have an easy time of it (ask Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela), and they can’t do everything they and we dream of. But their destiny is to advance human evolution, no easy task. And the bane of their existence is the pull backward of human weakness, fear and greed.

    As an avatar, PBO needs our constant supportive energy. He needs the genius of Chipsticks, gathering, educating and chivvying an army of supporters, and all the love we bring him. We hold him up. Whatever he’s destined for, we go with him. Let’s create a flood of positive energy.

Did anyone hear Republican Steve Schmidt say Romney is peddling the same ole thing? Maybe I heard him wrong, I’m excited just cooked dinner and got my drinks ready.

Thanks as always for the oasis of calm and positivity amongst the swirling noise of the Intertoobz. I will still be at work while the debate is going on and altho I can’t get onto Twitter at the office, I CAN retweet from TOD, so this Twitter “probie” is reporting for duty! Keep those tweets coming oh TOD Twitter Warriors and I will re-tweet like there’s no tomorrow. #4MoreFor 44 #FORWARD.

    Loved this post today from Extreme Liberal to Sully, Tweety and Ed which ended as follows:

    “What the candidates say actually matters, not just how slickly and passionately they deliver it. Fuck style, give me some substance.

    If you give a shit about the future of our country and want to see President Obama continue to move us forward, don’t let your personal expectations and desires interfere with your other higher brain functions, like reasoning and tact.

    If you can’t handle any of the above, just SHUT. THE. HELL. UP. and let the rest of us do your jobs for you.”

    Sincerely,

    Extreme Liberal

    “Obama’s biggest challenge tonight will be… working in the 3 hours of pre-debate advice HARDBALL has been giving him.”

    Hi All – I had an idea that we each consider pledging 25 cents for every Romney Lie told in tonight’s debate then donate the total to the Obama campaign.

      Living in Oklahoma, I know the south is very negative about the President. I had a feeling that the South was what swayed the national numbers, and I also think Gallup overpolls the south.

    One more reason Pres. Obama needs to win.

    Chips, when you post the actual debate thread, I would recommend you state clearly that rule about no newbies today, nicely explaining that you don’t have the time to check each comment in moderation, but that you welcome them back in a couple days. It can get frustrating posting a comment someplace where you are new, being told your comment is in moderation, and it remaining there for hours and hours without any explanation as to why.

    A funny——in response to the news that Willard had to practice sitting on a stool—–apparently had never seen one of those dang things, no bar experience.

    C-SPAN is showing the town hall stage and 99% of the “undecideds” are white voters. This is who Gallup picked? How does this represent the electorate? We’re more diverse than this.

    Do we have a drinking game on for tonight? I will be drinking hot cocoa! Not sure what the word or words should be.

    This is a good page on Facebook to ‘like': The Obama Prayer Team. They are prayer warriors for Pres. Obama and the whole administration. I always feel uplifted after I read their posts.

    Calm has come over me, Barack Obama does not hold our destiny in his hands, WE hold our own destiny in our hands by voting and working hard to relect PBO……..the only thing BAD that can happen to PBO tonight is for him to fall off the stage and break a bone…..so……my prayer is….Dear Lord please protect PBO from physical harm and give him strength and control to not cause physical harm to anyone else no matter what my thoughts are.

    Just heard a tv promo for the upcoming debate: Romney, Obama round two of the debates. Just what the hell is this? A debate or the Ali-Frazier fight ? I will definitely be watching it on channel PBS, then I’ll turn the sucker off.
