Default Mitt Romney caught pulling out a cheat sheet before debates

Quote:
Mitt Romney snuck a cheat sheet filled with notes on stage. The evidence comes from the first few seconds of the debate, during which Romney takes something out of his pocket and casually tosses it on to the lectern. Spokeswoman Andrea Saul said the thing Romney pulled out of his pocket was actually a handkerchief.

as a person still leaning towards obama and wishing like mad that bill clinton was still a candidate, may i quote the big lebowski and say "who gives a f--k about the f--king marmot, man!?"

cheat sheets are expected at these things. obama himself is a master of the teleprompter, which in many ways is even better than a cheat sheet.

no one person can possibly memorise everything relevant at a no-holds debate. unless of course you're bill clinton. but a cheat sheet doesn't help you speak, doesn't help you link statistics to a relevant analogy, doesn't help at the things that people are looking at when it comes to debates.

obama got his ass kicked and clearly was not ready. now just deal with it. some portion of that was due to obama, but in reality, most of the blame goes to his support team. and i'm sure there was much drama going on and a series of breakdowns behind the scenes that caused obama to badly shit the bed the way he did.

having said that, i remain confident obama's team can straighten this out. i know he usually hates getting advice from clinton, but NOW IS THE TIME TO GET ADVICE FROM BILL CLINTON.

if obama resorts to acting like a community organiser again in the second debate, this campaign is in major trouble. i still believe romney is a fraud, and i'll still go down voting for the dems in this election, but romney's debate team is kicking the obama team's ass, and that's the kind of thing that swings elections.

bring on the cheat sheets! if anything, we need more of them, and for obama to rapidly master their use.

I didn't know you weren't supposed to have notes? You mean they gotta memorize all those facts and figures? That's proof right there that 'Bama never smoked weed. That shit fvcks up your memory.

Why would it be a problem if he had a cheat sheet? I see no problem with a candidate having notes like certain points he wants to highlight and some specific stats he wants to bring up. I'm an Obama supporter btw, so don't think this is me just blindly backing Romney.
