    He’s a remarkable, truly remarkable person. I don’t know how we got so lucky as to have him as our President. He fights so hard for us.

    The AA man who posed the question about what PBO has done in the last 4 years and having to pay too much for the things he needs – he reminded me of the woman in that town hall a couple years ago who said her family had to eat hot dogs.

        No Child Left Behind, that man reminded me of a person who has “Not Been Paying Attention.” He was deserving of the smack down that POB gave to him right in his face. “So let me tell you buddy,”says POB.

        Nope, NCLB,
        I’m almost 60 years old, and we’ve always had some blacks like that guy in the town hall–think Cornel West and Tavis Smiley. Black guys like these have two main ways of dealing with the black man who has attained a higher level of success than they have : a-they conclude that the guy thinks he’s better than they are, even if the person has NEVER said it, and/or b-they proceed to tear him down just to make themselves feel better (“I’ll show him he’s not all that.”) I’ve seen this a lot in my years, and it’s just as despicable now that it’s happening to PBO as it has always been for me to see it. These sorry jackasses do/say things to/about PBO that they wouldn’t dare do to a white president. Smiley and West had their damn lips super glued shut when GWB was president, and it wouldn’t surprise me if this town hall tool had two coatings of super glue on his lips at that time.

      Yep and if you watched CSPAN, at the end he was all over the President trying to get a picture and an autograph. And you know our President being the man he is obliged him. If it was me, I would have asked, why you want to take a picture with a person that you’re disappointed in? But that’s just me. LOL!

        He did? I’m shocked.
        Obama needs me to field shit like this. I would have told Mr Disappointed to fuck off. Well, maybe in FantasyLand.
        But of course my president is gracious and has class. It’s why I love him so.

        I love the reports that the Romney’s left the stage while the Obamas stayed, taking pics, talking to the audience and signing autographs.

          Romney clearly didn’t learn from McCain last time around, when McCain left and President Obama continued to work to get the votes of those remaining. Once again, President Obama’s party was the last to leave the set (and you know he must have been exhausted). He’s serious.

        LadyTNT – That’s the difference between PBO and us. I don’t have the HEART AND SELF-DISCIPLINE that the President shows every day. Especially today. I know he’s “just a human being” but he’s certainly a superior type of human being.

    • October 17, 2012 at 12:50 pm

      Well, he was just as shameful as the young lady who didn’t know the POTUS has signed the Lilly Ledbetter Act.

    Robert Reich sums it up: “โ€œRomney was as combative as in the first debate, but our newly-invigorated president made Romneyโ€™s combativeness look like that of a child in a tantrum rather than a principled adult with facts and detailed proposals to support his position.โ€

    No one seems to be focusing on this. But the main highlight of the debate for me was when

    Mitts’s one and only foreign policy critic with any legs (Libya) was essentially dismantled.

    Obama: I sent these people to harm’s way. These were my friends. And to suggest I do not care about their safety. Frankly, governor I find that offensive.

    Best moment ever!

    It made him look so presidential I started squealing with joy. And I don’t usually make those sounds. This was more significant for me than even the 47% even though that was a thing a joy to watch.

    President Obama did us proud tonight. I was proud of him in the last debate. I trust him. He put a whipping on Willard.

    Remember the black guy who said he voted for our President last time and he was looking for reasons to vote again. Glad Prez told him that he needs to pay attention to the campaign. Matter of fact all of the questioners should have done there research. And besides he said that he is a police officer during the exit interview. Another idjit it full view.

    Also, didn’t Willard sound like John McCain. I know how to fix that words. Why is Willard so obsess with food stamps. It appears Willard is going to have a breakdown after the 2012 election results are in.

      I’m like WTF?

      Then they ask her :” How about the fact that he didn’t answer the question of whether women should be payed the same as men?”

      The idiot woman: “Uhh…err..*mumble,mumble** I don’t know. Maybe he’ll bring it in the next debate?”

    MSNBC has on a NBC group of 8 undecided. Only 2 decided (1 for O and 1 for R) but many were thinking of Romney. The women that are undecided seem so dumb as the moderator even brought up the fact that Mitt did not answer the question on women getting equal pay. They just think he will get them jobs since he is a job creator.

    โ€œWhy did the phrase resonate? Because it was tone deaf, condescending and out of touch with the actual economic issues that women are so bothered about. The phrase objectified and dehumanized women. It played right into the perception that so many women have feared about a Romney administration โ€“ that a president Romney would be sexist and set women back.โ€

      Yeah that stood out for me as well. It came off as phoney, without true feeling. I don’t think he gives a damn about woman but rather that he just wanted a woman to make his cabinet LOOK better, know what I mean?

        Bravo, COS! I feel exactly the same way you do. By the way, I still don’t know why people freaked out about the first debate. To be sure, the President was polite and tried to focus on his agenda rather than spend all his time debunking all the Romney lies. But, unlike Romney, he was still the “adult in the room.” He was not going around yelling and shouting at the moderator while at the same time he was telling lies to the American people.

    Hello Everyone, I hope that everyone had a chance to see an excellent debate performance from our President tonight. Never had a doubt that he would bring it. But as he has said from the start, this will be a close election and so every vote really does count. I am looking forward to some weekend phone banking and to voting early next week in Illinois.

    Here’s my question for the evening: How many people do you estimate watched tonight?

    My vote is for 62 million people. Any takers?
