        Me too! For some reason this debate even though I knew PBO was strong made me the most nervous to watch so much so that I taped it and came here instead. Only after hearing all the positive feedback I was able to stay up late and watch the tape. Thanks for this place!

      Scott Van Duzer, the power-lifting Republican pizza man famous for hoisting President Obama aloft during a September visit to his Florida restaurant, got more presidential love on Tuesday morning. After sitting with First Lady Michelle Obama at Monday night’s debate at Lynn University, Van Duzer today introduced the President at his first post-debate rally at the Delray Beach Tennis Center. The two hugged, but Van Duzer resisted the urge to pick up the President. (Above: Van Duzer introducing the Eater in Chief)

        I knew I “recognized” the man chatting with FLOTUS before the debate, and I’m glad to hear it was the pizza man because he was really leaning in on her. She looked like she wanted to say to him, “Back off, pizza breath!” Again, I’m glad to hear this since now it just looked like he was trying to relieve her possible nervousness about watching the festivities.

        A couple of other visions caught my eye last night … first, just as Ann Romney was being introduced, FL Gov. Rick Scott (I think it was) jumped into her camera shot, so everybody would know he was there as one of the hosts … second, former FL Gov. Charlie Crist (who got ousted by his own party for embracing PBO when he arrived in FL, as well as – for goodness sakes – siding with teachers) was sitting just behind FLOTUS, reminding his remaining FL followers (and there still are plenty) he’s got PBO’s back.

    Good morning TOD and blog goddess Chips, to whom I am forever grateful for this sane, inspiring, fun and incredibly informative site. I’m a resident of New York, but in the summer of 2011 I handed my house keys to renters, jumped into a great pick up truck, towing my new home behind it, and headed out for a life of adventures. My newest adventure has me on the way to Reno, Nevada to join OFA’s Vote Corps for the next two weeks. The VC is another great OFA idea — organizing people willing to relocate to swing states and commit to at least 40 hours a week doing whatever needs to be done. I’ve been so inspired by the hard work and dedication of so many of you, and am so grateful to have the opportunity to help this amazing man win his last election.

      Martha Radditz was by far the best moderator for a presidential debate that I have ever seen. She did a exemplary job controlling the debate and challenging outlandish claims. I really liked her style, it was so refreshing (and unexpected). But Martha really did herself proud. She did her homework and set an example for Jim Lehrer, Candy Crowley and Bob Schieffer. None of them measured up to Martha’s caliber.

        October 23, 2012 at 10:57 am

        Exactly, the speech has been boiled down to a succinct and crisp closing argument for re-election. He’s a remarkable human being. A treasure. I can’t believe my good fortune to be witnessing this historic presidency. I am reminded of the amazing New Yorker endorsement.

        The Choice

        The reëlection of Barack Obama is a matter of great urgency. Not only are we in broad agreement with his policy directions; we also see in him what is absent in Mitt Romney—a first-rate political temperament and a deep sense of fairness and integrity. A two-term Obama Administration will leave an enduringly positive imprint on political life. It will bolster the ideal of good governance and a social vision that tempers individualism with a concern for community. Every Presidential election involves a contest over the idea of America. Obama’s America—one that progresses, however falteringly, toward social justice, tolerance, and equality—represents the future that this country deserves. ♦

    Good Morning Chips & TOD! Quickly – last night I was all settled in for debate, the phone rang, & a young- sounding male voice said he was taking a “survey” AGHHHHH because it was literally 5 minutes before the debate! So, I was crabby, I asked “what kind of survey?” & he said a 3 minute political survey. So, I said YES and don’t you know this person was soooooo exceted with all of my answers! It was so cute, he could not contain himself. Us Obama fans are just so emotional about our President. Anyway, I probably made his night, by the sounds of it. There are lots of Romney signs around my neighborhood so I am also happy he called my house. Have a great day-after-a-great-debate-day all!

    My 16 year old son and I watched the debate together. Wish he could vote! Anyway, about half way through, my son jumped up and yelled, “I think Romney just farted. Did you hear that?” And I did hear what sounded like a fart. Then I saw Romney get that “uh-oh, I think I have gas” look, which is hard to tell because his expression ALWAYS looks like he is about to fart! Then when the family came on stage at the end, I was watching him hug one of his boys, and when he pulled back from the hug I read his lips, in which he appeard to mouth “I broke wind” while laughing. The boy, not sure which one of the 5, had this horrible look on his face, no laughter. Did anyone else hear Mitt fart during the debate last night? I so wish PBO had heard it and said at the time, “Mitt, did you just pass gas”? Or better yet, just wave his hand toward Mitt to clear the air around the desk! Anyone else hear it or has anyone wlse mentioned it?

    Interesting day in the markets. The DOW is down big but so is oil. Which do you think most people are going to recognize, DOW being down or gas prices plummeting? I would bet on the latter. Gas in my neck of the woods in suburban Chicago is 3.69, down 80 cents from just a couple months ago.

  51. October 23, 2012 at 11:05 am

    When Tagg Romney put his hand on PBO’s back he understood instantly what Joe Biden was talking about. A spine made a ramrod. Right there he came to the very wise conclusion that he didn’t want any parts of PBO.

      That was such a weird moment. The guy was apologizing, right??? Don’t act all buddy-buddy, creepy smiley with our POTUS unless you were groveling for forgiveness! But of course, as PBO is such a better man than me, he graciously smiled back.
      The only one that I really liked in that clan was that little grandson, sharing post debate analysis with Potus lol he was too cute!

          PBO is a human being first and President 2nd. Shockingly some people think they’re humans 2nd and CEO/Professor etc 1st – smdh.

    Found this nugget on the internet

    Romney and the republicans are all over Obama because he hasn’t turned the economy around fast enough yet last night he said not once but twice that he would have the budget balanced in 8 to 10 years.

    He’s been saying that for a while actually. Here’s what he said in Sept. on Meet the Press:

    MR. ROMNEY: I’ll balance the budget by the end of my second term. Doing it in the first term would cause, I believe, a– a dramatic impact on the economy. Too– too dramatic. And therefore the steps I’ve put in place and we’ve put together a plan that lays out how we get to a balanced budget within eight to 10 years.

    Now what we need is an Ad with the above quote and this quote from Romney criticizing Obama for not balancing the budget in 4 years.

      Good Morning TOD Family. Thanks Bobfr for all that you do to keep the Twitter lights burning.

      This is going to be a great day for POB VPBiden. I woke up with Mr. Pain, but I just keep moving and singing as I was opening up the blinds. I went into the music room/library and did my usual meditation moment, but something had me linger for a few minutes, and I just stood and prayed a prayer that gave me an assurance that POB is going to be fine. I will not get into any more details, but I saw again someone stated, “How does he do it.” Well, I really believe in my heart(my personal belief) that he is doing it because of the beautiful spirits that surround him daily like those of us here with Chips. It is a powerful thing to have angels of beautiful determined, prayerful(no matter what you personaly faith maybe) constant surrounding someone with that goodness which gives off great energy.

      Then I came back upstairs and the pain had subsided, and I had not taken the meds yet. I opened up the bedroom shades, and I felt a sweet spirit of calmness come over me that came over me when my precious mother left her space here on earth. I knew that we were ready for anything. I turned on the tv to watch POB in Florida. There was Charlie Crist speaking(miracles have happen) then the sweet and gentle spirit of another angel, Scott introducing POB.

      When POTUS came out, I saw a glow all over him that I have s
      often when he knows that people are with him, his faith is strong and he sees it wowrking, and his trust in God is full. It was so beautiful. Then he started speaking. Let me say, “President is ready to bring this on home for us.” So take that speech(he was on fire this morning) his spirit, his honesty, and be encouraged. We can’t allow our hearts to be troubled, but trust him and our precious Joe Biden.

      Slap those doors, dial up those phones and please continue to donate. We need our president to bring this on home. I am in. I will not allow the pain to stop me, and my spirit is in the right place. Do not worry about me, I will make this one also. Let stand together and keep our eyes on the prize.

      Keep Chips in your meditations, your prayers, your good deeds, and keep our site ringing with good news, good spirits of telling good joy of what is good, sweet and precious about our president.

      Now I am going to make my calls, and please do not forget to make your donations wherever you so desire.HZ

    DELRAY BEACH. FLA. — Don’t trust Mitt Romney, a fired-up President Barack Obama told a boisterous crowd of about 11,000 in this South Florida city Tuesday, as the candidates began their final push for votes.

    Obama started his day a few miles from the Lynn University site of Monday night’s third and final debate. He spent much of his 20-minute talk at the Delray Beach Tennis Center pointing out his Republican rival’s frequent changes in position.
