Look at you, all bright and bushy tailed and in 1st
Yup. And ready for some ass kicking.
That woke you up.
Grrrr! Knocked out 5 times! Scoot over, Amk ……I want to be in the first row …so my hearing aid will work? /beseeching eyes – will say a hail mary about the hearing aid lie later/ Aw come on, just a wee bit over ….pleease!

Not sure if I’m all set. I keep running to the bathroom!

I am fired up!
Readdddddddddddddddddddddy to GOOOOOOOOOO!!!
I knew it. I knew Chips would be putting up a new thread. Refreshed and then saw the header and got distracted at the image on the TV. lol
Almost:) Won’t OFA site have the debate too?
Hi DF, here’s the OFA link – http://www.barackobama.com/live/october-22
The live-streaming video it’s using is the same one in the post.
I am ALL SET.
Ready to go !!
Best wishes PBO. Youwill be brilliant tonight.
Yummy, yum yum …. eat’um up Mr President ….
#AdmitItMitt your fondest thought of being President is destruction of everything Presidents Roosevelt through Clinton achieved for the 98%.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
Bringing this over from the end of the other thread.
#AdmitItMitt you soooooooo want to self-deport to Paris right about now— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
Ready and waiting for third debate #Forward2012! Go PBO – you will knock it out of the park!
Chips…can you add this to the links for debate tonight?? Hugs
Yes I am, and so is my Commander-in-Chief.
Welp, Willard, this is the end of the line for you. The closest you’re going to get to the presidency is your handshake with POTUS tonight. You and your draft-dodging, saber-rattling, ally-alienating, ass-talking, disaster-creating, neo-con pretenders will have to slither back to whence you came, starting tonight.
PJ…tell us how you really feel about Willard
The debate starts in 30 minutes. Follow along for a live fact-check.— (@TruthTeam2012) October 23, 2012
When Romney acts like a foreign policy expert tonight, let's not forget last summer when he almost started a war with Britain. #debate— Andy Borowitz (@BorowitzReport) October 22, 2012
Im nervous as a guy with a toupee standing next to a helicopter landing
but I’m here.
Welcome! In a preemptive strike, take off the toupee, and hang on to one of your best buds here and ride out the storm together. Our guy’s ready! He’s been getting ready for almost 4 years by the decisions he’s made and the actions he has taken.
It’s the support from you all that keep me sane
Dickwad. Their policy is shoot first, ask questions later. Maybe.
Whomever chose this date for the debate was not considerate of President Obama—-Chgo Bears on Mon. Night Football.
All set for the final showdown. Good luck TOD family!
My husband is DVRing the debate so he can watch the 7th game of SF vs STL. I can’t believe it!! So I’m in the other room with our second TV (only two in this house). I remember when my parents could only afford one – and it was a B&W. Dating myself big time.
Men! (Some men anyway). I am so friggin’ nervous. Queen Ann is looking like the witch she is while Michelle looks gorgeous as always. Sigh! Sure wish I still drank – could use a stiff one about now!
I’m in my own house with 2 TVs all alone with both of them off and on this blog instead because I had been watching MSNBC (mistake). Chris Matthews and Fineman both said if Mitt Romney held his own to a tie it was a win for Mitt. Wow! Just wow! I turned off the tv and decided to just tivo the debate and read the blog instead. I have already voted so the debate would not convince me to change my vote away from PBO BUT I am so nervous for him. I will watch it after I hear what all of you think. Last time I watched then joined the blog after. I seem to be going backwards in the bravery arena.
Obama not only has been a wildly successful #foreignpolicy president, he prepped with John Kerry, an expert. #feelinggood about the #debate— The People's View (@thepeoplesview) October 23, 2012
He’s been mopping Romney all over the place.
Of course, I had a black conservative respond to my tweet. I really have no words for him. SMH.
LL, as far as I am concerned the term “black conservative” is an oxymoron! I wonder, does this black conservative who responded to you want to go back to the policies of the pre-1950′s? Because if he does he must favor racial segregation and black disfranchisement. To be honest, I still don’t get what exactly Black conservatives want to conserve by joining the modern Republican party. It’s obvious that they are not interested in conserving the Civil Rights advances made since the 1960′s by blacks, other people of color, women, gays/lesbians, which are now under attack from Republicans.
TV on CSPAN…check
TOD open on IPhone…. Check (left iPad at work, darn)
Xanax on board… Check
Yep I’m all set!
Chilled Glass of Wine ….check
Don’t know if this has been posted I love it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XMxtbAP2cyU#!
Rachel says George Bush will loom over the debate…I disagree…every time I look at MR I think of Cheney.
When does the First Lady not get recognized 1st? Ann Romney was introduced 1st the first debate too, was she introducted the 1st time in the 2nd one also? That is really disrepectful.
Apparently, they toss a coin. That is one thing that should never be up for a question – she’s the First Lady. The title means something. Ann’s husband doesn’t even hold a position in this country – except for being a member of the top 1%! I think that’s wrong – she should always be introduced first.
The toss is just for taking the first question or opening and closing statements. Should have nothing to do with the introductions.
No – last debate there were five tosses, and I believe Romney won three of them. One of them was for the introductions.
I thought I heard him say FLOTUS and then Ann Romney.
Scheifer may have but the head of the debate committee, that woman didn’t.
Okay y’all, here we go! I don’t know if I’ll be commenting during the debate. I’ll try and join you later. It’s too hard trying to read the comments, make comments and listen to the debate. Besides, I don’t know if I can remain seated for this one.
I know – I’m trying to decide whether to just watch the debate, watch twitter, watch TOD, or just sit in a dark room until it’s all over!
Noooo Theo, no dark rooms for you. We need you here, wise & all!
I’m here – shaking…
Here, Theo, you can have a blanket. PBO is fine, This is nothing compared to him actually dealing with all these issues DAILY.
I watched the whole thing. It was brilliant!
hahahahahah….sit in a dark room!
I’m in, kitty in my lap and grilled salmon with broccoli and roasted potatoes on my plate! Now to eat it before it goes cold. With PBO, and TOD!
Mmmmmmmm! Licking my lips, here though it’s way past my dinnertime and though I’m not actually hungry.
watching on cspan
I am FIRED UP, Praying for PBO, but can’t watch live.
I hope Secret Service has surrounded Tagg Romney. For his sake.
I’m here! FLOTUS looks beautiful as always.
It’s so on!
Is that the bearhugging pizza guy next to Michelle?
yes he was invited to attend.
Have fun, everyone, I assure you President Obama will be having a great time …
Of course, theo … this is historic and fun!!
#AdmitItMitt you have 90 min with the President and the next time you are speaking with him you will be CONCEDING ….— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
CNN reports a little nervous stomach for Team Mitt. Suggestion: Try a little Milk of Romnesia!— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) October 23, 2012
Hello e1! This is absolutely priceless!!! lol
It’s a sit down debate.
okay all nervous!
Libya. First question. Did Bob not read the newspapers?
I’m ready because I know my President is Bob Schieffer’s questions had better be totally non partisan.
Doesn’t look like it!
President Obama has his serious eyes on – they are always deep set when he’s serious.
"Tonight, Ann Romney wears a necklace made of crystalline tears procured from the children of the men her husband has fired." #MocktheVote— Nina Bargiel (@slackmistress) October 23, 2012
Good luck all. Same game plan as last time – call out Mitt’s lies and all praise for PBO.
I’m here, but I’m so nervous that I can’t watch the debate. Plus, I detest Romney, the shapeshifting werewolf.
I’m breaking away to the Bears game whenever Willard makes me too nauseous—-I expect to see a lot of the game.
What?—It’s nice to be funny this time not on purpose????? Willard begins with a nonsensical.
Look how PBO is watching Willard. Hahahahahahahahahahhahhahahahahahahaha! Like a shark watching bait.
Exactly, I know what he’s thinking too: “DICK!”
Remember if you don’t like the split screen, watch on CSPAN2. They only show the person who is speaking at the time.
Ah, Mitt cares about women in the Middle East. In America? Not so much.
Romney’s first answer….word salad with occassional ‘woman’ word thrown in
“Romney’s first answer….word salad”
say it again Berny.
Exactly! Cracked up when he mentioned women!
I am here, not really lisening to Mitt, muted him. Can’t stand his voice, his looks, his lies. Lord, I lift the Presidsent up to you. Put wise words in his heart and mouth Protect and sheild him Lord..
Amen, Miss Pat.
Is Mitt making any sense? I see his mouth moving and I see his ugly glare, Wish I could just black him out and listen to the President only.
Listening to PBO’s response. Will admit that I muted Mitt; so tired of his voice at this point.
PBO sounds so much CIC
Ceb, I have started to mute mitt too…I simply can not stand his voice/lies! I wish I could hide his face because I can’t stand to look at him!!
Ooo Prez is taking right to Mitt! GOPBOGO!
Mitt trying to talk tough.
#AdmitItMitt you just #GishGalloped your way through another serving of word salad …— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
yes! exactly bob! RT’d
lolololol ahahahahahahahahahahah Willard — My strategy is to kill them. lolololololol get Muslim world to reject al queda on it’s own. jihadist.. . . muslims
I sure am. Myth has already F***ed up, He is changing positions on Foreign Policy. So glad to hear PBO tell MYTH his strategy has been all over the map,
blahblahblahblah Mittens word salad like someone said upthread……..
Stumblin’ and bumblin’ Mitt!
I love the look on PBO face. ITs like you wanna mess me with me……
Gender equality, rule of law, blah, blah, blah. trying to co-opt women’s rights. Why is Willard ignoring Benghazi.
Hey, Romney Hood. We are not fighting “the Muslim world.”
Mitt: “A rising tide of chaos.” He was talking about his own foreign policies, right?
Chips, I stole this and tweeted it – with a hat tip to you !
Tweet away Mary!!
Mitt’s fumbling around….he hasn’t the slightest idea what the hell he’s talking about
Prez is taking it to Mittens again Ka POW
The president looks like he is thinking Romney is full of shit.
Because Romney is, of course.
mittbotnow ticking off the talking points one by one
whewwwww weeeeee, he is on fire PBO!
Ha! The 1980′s are calling and want their foreign policy back——(Willard saying Russia our biggest threat—Obama nails him)
Did I hear MYTH say gender equality for the Middle East? Hey, what about gender equality here in the United States.
PBO went there re: Mitt’s belief that the biggest threat was Russia. LOL
MYTH has Romnesia on Russia. Uh Ohhh , our President just called Myth out because Myth is sending mixed messages to the Middle East. Haa Haa! It’s not the Middle East. It’s also to Myth’s stupid ass too.
The 1980′s want their FP back- BAM!!!
PBO: “I know you haven’t been in a position to execute foreign policy, but every time you’ve offered an opinion, you’ve been wrong.”
Let me take another sip of this delicious wine.
Sips mine as well…with a smile!
As we say in the Navy, “Somebody is being slipped the fid”!
Yum .. me too. Cold chardonnay, hot Thai food!
Yummy, all around!
PBO is on attack.
GOOD! Yes, I love my gentle, knowledgeable, diplomatic President … but I want Romney destroyed and only PBO maybe can do this. Go PBO!
PBO has the carving knife out.
PBO is pointing out Mitt’s flip flops.
Need strong and steady leadership, not wrong and reckless leadership—–Obama ready for this one!
You were wrong and also sending mixed messages to our friends and allies! KaPOW-za #GOGOPBO
#AdmitItMitt you are less than 10 min into this thing & now you know you really should have self-deported to Paris— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
Biggest threat = Russia, so you said! UR mixed up, Gubna R-Money!
Romney is being utterly humiliated here, he is so far out of his depth in this debate it’s embarrassing.
PBO – Every time you opened your stupid mouth, you have been wrong.
Willard trying to talk down to PBO. Crying foul.
Tumult…if he says that one more time…..
#AdmitItMitt the only 'TUMULT' is in your gut and you don't have your handy bottle of Milk of #ROMNESIA to sooth it— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
#AdmitItMitt when you say 'gender equality in the Middle East' you simply mean you want men & women to make 20 cents an hour in your factory— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
Willard is a complete and utter idiot.
The President schools Romney on how to be Commander in Chief. Love it!
So the 1920s, 1980s, and 1950s called and they want their era back. Mitt has a pretty strong hold on them. You go Pres!
PBO is so in control of this.
Darn, PBO just kicked R-Money’s butt!
Do Romney’s eyes look like they are filling up to anyone else? Oh, so very funny the spot he has himself in … the President gives 5-point examples of his points, and Romney’s thinking he needs four more. Oh, thanks, Bob, you started speaking and that helped Romney think of the other four. I don’t want him bawling like a baby on us.
Ann and Tagg are probably very angry at seeing PBO make mincemeat out of Romney.
One of them will head to the stage soon, to be toppled by some of the Dems sitting next to FLOTUS, even before the Secret Service nabs them by their necks.
The President mentions allies in the region. Romney’s thinking to himself, “We have allies in the region?”
Willard trying to sound serious and presidential.
Ha! Romney just looked straight ahead at the camera (or maybe at Ann in the front row) to see if anyone’s watching him. Here comes more bullshit out of his mouth.
Willard repeating what PBO says on Syria. Does this guy have one original thought?
I thought I was hearing things. Another sip of wine, thank goodness this is the last debate or I’d be tipsy ALL the time.
Damn…LMAO…Romney is just paraphrasing everything PBO just said about Syria! Has no new ideas of his own.
So Romney now is repeating what PBO said two mins ago? WTF?
I know, I thought I was hearing things. He’s co-opted the President’s words!
#AdmitItMitt you are about to show the entire world why Ms Ann is so concerned about your Mental Stability— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
Will admit I am watching on CNN …they have those voters hitting buttons up and down. Pretty interesting. They don’t like Romney very much. Also…does it seem it is two against one. Shieffer …has all questions to President Obama and nothing for Romney.
Mitt just agreed with everything PBO just said on Syria.
The difference is that the Repubs will start a war…but mitt knows he can’t say that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The President draws the discussion back to Libya, even after Romney has used up all his talking points.
Pres Obama zings Romney. Tells him "every time you've offered an opinion" on foreign policy, "you been wrong."— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) October 23, 2012
Actually, Mark, it’s “you’ve” been wrong, but I realize you’re probably wetting your pants already at the so-called “zinger.” In this case, Markie boy, it’s called “the truth.”
Myth, shut up. you have exactly no freaking idea what you are talking about, and we all know it. Rude, interrupting, and of course the geezer moderator has no idea what is going on either. PBO owns the night. I wish my phone would stop chiming now.
So he is interrupting again huh? The man is realy sick. He is not normal. Will be rude till the day he dies.
Entitlement…he believe he can say and do whateve whenever…this is one of the many reasons why he can’t be president.
I would love to reach into my television and slap that smirk off Romney’s face.
The bar has been set so low for Mitt that all he had to do was show up. He only has to pretend as if he knows what he’s talking about to the non-cable junkies. They’ll buy what he’s selling, but then again, that smirk and the creepy stare may scar them for life.
Is mittbot just repeating what the President is saying almost word by word ?
Yes, he is. Read my comment above, and the one before it!
Yes, he did!
We knew Mittens was weak on foreign policy, but not this weak!
Why do we think that Romney could have an original thought? Besides he is quite capable of lying his way thru.
Oh wow. The return of moderate Mitt. hahahahahahahahahahhahhahahahahahahaha!
#Obama dismantling #Romney on foreign policy. Experience as commander in chief showing during this answer.— Abby Huntsman (@HuntsmanAbby) October 23, 2012
I think old turncoat Jon Huntsman – who hates Romney – is probably co-authoring Abby’s tweets.
This isn’t even close—-Our brilliant President and the male Palin. Can Mitt be as dumb as he seems? How is that even possible.
PBO is not letting Mitt etch-a-sketch his way through this debate. He keeps pointing out all of the things Mitt has said in the past about the various topics. PBO IS the President and CIC!!!!!
“We are playing leadership role”. Take that Myth. Our President just smoked you. Myth is no leader. He is buffoon. playing cowboys and girls.
Pres Obama is really struggling here – struggling to keep a straight face while listening to Romney talk crap about world politics
Yes, and we’re all with him in his “struggle.” Hope he makes it through the night without laughing right in Mitt’s dead-eyed face. Of course, he’s serious about this and Romney isn’t, so PBO will continue to remain presidential. Romney’s looking more pekid each minute.
Go ahead Prezzie. Laugh like Uncle Joe did last week. We have your back.
I’m tweeting this!!
Jeebus, R-Money wishes he was a soothsayer!
Mitt is a fish and he’s looking for a bicycle so he can get away.
hold it hold it hold it that needs tweeting dearie.
@barackobama struggling here~to keep a straight face listening to Mitt talk crap re: world politics h/t @___Chips___ http://t.co/wtEL6jh7— (@a4alice) October 23, 2012
Willard sounds like a 5th grader to me——-or like the kid called on in class who doesn’t know the answer —-and takes a stab at it anyway—-and all the other kids stifle laughter.
Fucking word salad of the memorized talking points.
I guess Willard knows he can’t win, so he’s going for a tie.
And so far, he’s failing miserably at that goal. His ignorance of foreign policy is being highlighted here.
What I love about PBO is his clarity of thought. I love that he talks about women in the Middle East with the same level of advocacy that he does about women at home.
I believe everything President Obama says.
You might as well since all Mittens has done is repeat what Obama said.
There is nothing for Mitt to say. PBO has been doing this, and beautifully, for almost 4 years. This is a great showcase for the president.
So, will the word “Libya” cross Willard’s lips ever again, or did PBO put his foot so far up his ass re: Benghazi that he wouldn’t dare?
Romney looks absolutely miserable!
#AdmitItMitt you are being nothing but a stenographer tonight by repeating what the President says. You are NOT Presidential in any way.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
Get him, Mr. President. We see you lift your head like that, and we know what you’re thinking. Go for it – beat him up with truth and facts and wisdom and judgment.
Romney made no sense about Syria! He kept on contradicting himself!
There is so much imbalance in the quality of the answers at this debate. Night and day. Now Willard is saying he likes peace, like he was a Miss Teen America contestant.
Like in that movie with Sandra Bullock, the beauty pageant one, can’t remember the name of it…
The president is doing great, looks and sounds like a CIC!
Oh, myth, YOU personally played a major role in weakening the economy, Uh.
Willard takes it back to the economy. Slobbering over the military.
#StenographerMitt #StenographerMitt #StenographerMitt #StenographerMitt #StenographerMitt #StenographerMitt #StenographerMitt #Debate— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
I think I love how Mitt is rambling on and on this time. He seems to think if he talks and talks he can showcase his ‘knowledge’.
BOOM!!!! GO follow this awesome tweep!
Mitt Romney would take us back to the foreign policy of the 1980s, social policy of the 1950s, and economic policy of the 1920s— nana kwame (@nanakwa66789694) October 23, 2012
Mitt sounds like he’s trying to cram in all the points that his neocon advisors told him. Quick! Before you forget, Mitt!
Is it me or is @MittRomney starting to sound like Ms. South Carolina from 2007 ( bit.ly/RR5fMk)? #msnbc2012 @hardball_chris @maddow— Paul Blouin (@paulblouin) October 23, 2012
Now mittbot wants a “great” military.
Ms. America, what is your greatest wish?
Willard: world peace.
The Romney pivot to the economy. Expect more of this more often.
Word Salad Mitt.
He’s talking about human rights and human dignity???? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?????????????????
Did this fool just mention Poland?
Word salad, all over the place,response to America’s role in the world. WTF?
What was that? Schieffer didn’t let PBO respond?
Media is definitely stacked against PBO,
Welcome to AA’s world…..it’s been like this from the beginning of this country.
Mitt is rambling rambling.
#AdmitItMitt at least Sarah Palin knew which direction to look to see Russia from her porch, no wonder McCain picked her & not you.— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) October 23, 2012
Fucking same points again and again. hey schieffer how about enforcing the 2 minute rule ?
Unprecedented, thanks to you, Mr President!
First Sarah Palin and now Mittens…
People who somehow found their ways on a Presidential ticket and know less about foreign affairs than most junior high students. How sad!
New post everyone:
Jobs overseas! Gotcha. Zingo……
Dick Cheney and George Bush: Wrong and Reckless!!!!
Oh Lord, next thing you know Dick Cheney will rise from his grave to make a comment.
Schieffer letting Robme go on and on aanddd on I’m pissed
Why did I figure this wouldn’t stay on foreign stuffs for long? Now lets talk about women in binders please.
So, as always, I’m watching the debate via here and Twitter. And I take it Mitt is dying again?
Look, on Syria, all Mitt did was paraphrase what Obama said!
It’s worse than anything Sarah Palin ever said (including her infamous “Alaska” comment).
Did he forget that the pres. Has spent much time in South America on trade and building relationships?
Da Bears! 10-2 against the Lions, 1st quarter. Checked during the Mitt lies.
WTF! Latin America has the right timezone?! Just like those damn trees. Jeebus! Are we in FP or DP?
Romney’s eyes are darting and blinking and carrying on. Makin’ me dizzy.
Will somebody tell the moderator that no one is interested in the foreign debate. Let’s just scrap it and go full on. Now Mitt tracks back to the right, after going to the center and now he’s left of PBO.
Horses and bayonets, shouting with latter here.
wait…..there’s no more horses and bayonets? When did that happen?
POW!!!!!!! BANG!!!!!!! SPLOOOFFFFFF!!!!
PBO hits a GRAND SLAMMMMMMM!!!!
He is going in for the kill. Mitt looks and sounds like a ballon losing air.
Obama on Romney's understanding of defense: "Yes, we have fewer ships than we had in 1916. We also have fewer horses and bayonettes."— Stephanie Cutter (@stefcutter) October 23, 2012
Bayonettes! Damn, Mitt, what war are you fighting?
PBO just eviscerated Romney on military budget. He is flopping like fish out of water.
