Romney seems to take more of a ruthless business 'efficient' approach while Obama plays the overly humanitarian. Romney, is a scumbag and a dick. Obama is soft and doesn't know anything. They both suck and I ain't voting.

I wouldn't say that, this is the same man who gloats about killing Osama, the same man who bombed the shit out of libya, the same man who authorizes drone attacks in the middle east(which kills thousands of innocents), the same man who still hasn't withdrawn from Afghanistan despite his lies coming into office, the same man who has turned the USA into a police state(or will turn).

Obama is ruthless

Nate Silver had an interesting article on how little effect debates have, the media play it up because they want ratings...

I thought televised debates were one of the main reasons Kennedy beat Nixon ?



Not arguing with you, I really don't know a lot about politics.

I overstated when I said they don't effect the polls, they do, but not a lot at all. Romney's absolutely going to get a couple percentage points from tonight, and he should, he killed it. But he won't be leading.

But he does it again in a few weeks...

Those were literally the first televised debates ever and Kennedy was, well, Kennedy. All the smooth good looking dude shit you hear about. Nixon was legitimately sick and dripping sweat (youtube it). Nothing near what happened tonight.

Yeah, in a very tight race, they can effect the outcome, but Romney has been consistently down, especially in the swing states. Kerry drubbed W in 04 in every debate and he made it close but still lost. Romney is going to need to destroy Obama in the next 2 debates but you can bet Obama is gonna be more fiesty next time.

Romney presented better, but I still have absolutely no faith in him helping out the middle class and the poor.

We never agree, but I have to say that quote goes quite well with the Bane avatar.

i kinda of compare the debates to an NBA game.

you have your mind made up about who you want to win a long time before that game happens.... so, when it finally comes on all you see is all the good things you team does/all the good calls for you team, and all the bad things the other team does/all the bad calls.


in a debate you only see the good things you opponent does and the bad things the other candidate does.


the polls are a months away, minds are made up by now.
