I thought last night’s Presidential Debate was boring and a waste of time. These are 82 people who claim that just three weeks before the election, they still don’t know who they’re voting for, which means the questioners were either 82 of the dumbest people in America, or 82 of the biggest liars faking it to get in on asking a question to help their candidate and/or hurt the opposition. I believe it’s the latter, as I saw after the debate that the crowd seemed to swarm to President Obama and Mitt Romney was on his own, going up to Candy Crowley to thank her for her (very partisan) “moderation” of the debate. Would have loved to have seen a poll of the 82 dummies or liars after the debate.
I also found the debate annoying to watch. I could watch divorce court every single day on daytime TV, don’t wanna see it in this. Obama’s and Romney’s contentious interaction wasn’t fun to watch because there were no zingers or great one-liners, just fighting to a draw, in my view. I look to Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. They might constantly attack each other, but it’s fun to watch. This wasn’t. It was painful. “I know you are but what am I?” That’s what I thought I was listening to.
Romney’s tap-dancing on immigration was just as I said in the past: he’s completely flip-flopped from being tough on immigration in the Republican primaries to endorsing the same “pathway” allowing illegal aliens to stay here and not get deported. They are no differences between them on this very important issue, and when I pointed this out on Twitter (follow me on Twitter), some mindless, blind conservatives started attacking me and claiming I support Obama (which is total BS).
Crowley’s insertion of herself into the answers on the Benghazi Consulate terrorist attack was absurd, since she didn’t insert herself to correct Obama on any of this misstatements, lies, etc. On guns, I don’t think most Americans know what Fast and Furious is, so that was sort of a wasted answer on Romney’s part, though I’m pretty confident that the Second Amendment is the one issue where I’m pretty sure that Romney will actually stand tough (unlike what he did in Massachusetts, despite his “explanation” of that). I’m all for restricting the Second Amendment for bitter koran clingers, especially the ones who storm our embassies and/or murder our diplomats. But for the rest of us, hands off our guns.
One other thing: those bar stools were really dumb and very unpresidential. Whose cockamamie idea was that? This was a Presidential Debate, not a keg party.
What did you think? Do you think the debate will make any difference in the polls? I don’t.
