Final Debate Thread


Home stretch people, home stretch. Tonight is the last debate. . . thankfully. Tonight is about foreign policy, which probably means ratings of between 14-18 people. In that regard, we now have a CIA memo which blows a hole in the Obama Administration plan to blame the intelligence community. Obama seems to have decided that less than 4 deaths per embassy is optimal. And Joe Biden is looking for veterans of our recent wars with Iraq and Iran. . . idiot.

It looks like Obama wasn't able to gain any momentum from the last debate so tonight could be critical. Maybe he should talk about the 47% of Pakistanis Romney hates. . . or the 57 states he's visited since he became a professional golfer president.

Cowboys won yesterday - maybe it's a portent that the Moderator will be fair... yeah, right, never mind.

AndrewPrice said...

rlaWTX, I have never known Bob Schieffer not to be fair.

Oh... wait, take out the "not."

LL said...

It will be another Mainstream Media Moderator exercise in narcissism and bias.

I doubt that it will change the momentum of the Election. Obama will lie as usual, while trying to convince us that his presidency has not been a colossal failure (and Bob Schieffer will affirm that he's personally done very well pulling down $800K per year reporting on Obame the past year - so the HIS economy is strong).

BevfromNYC said...

Maybe they should bring in some of those replacement referees to keep it fair! They can blow a whistle and throw a flag down whenever Bob helps out Barack when he gets in the weeds or when Bob interrupts and changes the subject right when Mitt is going to explain how Barack is lying.

AndrewPrice said...

LL, I think that unless Romney drops his pants, this debate won't change anything. And If the last debate didn't help Obama in the polls, then only a true blow-out win will help tonight. BUT, few people care about foreign policy, and it rarely sways elections. Also, most people will be watching Monday Night Football. So unless Romney does something horrible they can run for the next week on the news, tonight will be irrelevant.

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, They would be better than anyone from the MSM, that's for sure.

Koshcat said...

I like the penalty idea, although I was thinking that if Obama started talking about killing Osama, Romney should throw the flag for excessive celebration after the play.

T-Rav said...

I like Schieffer, but he's become increasingly unreliable and suspect in his old age. Here's hoping he doesn't let his bias show too much.

Unfortunately, another night class calls for me, so I will again be joining the fanfare (ha!) somewhat late. Talk quietly amongst yourselves until I show up.

rlaWTX said...

[1] NO pants dropping!! BClinton might decide to jump onstage and join in!

[2] Penalty flags sound like a GREAT idea!

[3] T-Rav, enjoy class (lol); but when have we ever "talked quietly"??

[4] my client didn't call to set tonight's appointment, so I am out of excuses. Dang it.

Individualist said...

"And Joe Biden is looking for veterans of our recent wars with Iraq and Iran. . . idiot."

Andrew

After taking out Sadaam the remainder of the war probably involved our soldiers fighting as many secret Iranian insurgents as Al Queada or former Bathists so maybe the clock stopped in Ol' Crazy Joe's favor on this one.

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, I don't dislike Schieffer. As far as MSM go, he's probably a decent choice just like Jim Lehrer.

AndrewPrice said...

rlaWTX, Then we expect you here! Front row...

What do you mean no dropping pants? That would be my prime strategy!

AndrewPrice said...

Koshcat, I hope he beats that drum mericlessly tonight. Every time he says it, it sounds a little more phony.

AndrewPrice said...

Indi, I hadn't thought of that. I thought perhaps old Joe was talking about something they were planning for next week.

tryanmax said...

I put my money on Bob Schieffer not knowing what the heck is even going on.

Bob Schieffer said...

Mr. Tryanmax, I know Joe Biden, sir. And I am no Joe Biden.

T-Rav said...

rla, are you saying you'll be here for the whole thing and I won't? What universe is this???

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, I'm hoping this a universe where they say only two things tonight so my recap can be very, very short.

Tennessee Jed said...

first off, I don't like Bob Schieffer. Not then, not now. He is a lib t.v. talking head. Always has been and always will be.

Debate most likely means absolutely nothing, but it will be interesting to see if Team Chicago (B.O. & Schieffer) will try and do something with a "peace is at hand" bullshit meme.

Jon said...

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Harry Reid raise his hand and stand up during the Iran part of Joe Biden's question? Man!! (Whistles through teeth.)

Jon said...

Obama tonight: I think there is no escaping the whole botched security situation with Libya, I mean even if he did say (loosely) that it was terrorism in the next day in the rose garden, how many weeks of trying to tie it to a video and saying it is spontaneous can be ignored? He got caught campaigning with his pants down, instead of managing.

T-Rav said...

Yeah, good luck with that.

Well, I'm out. See y'all in a few hours. Stand by for sockpuppeting.

rlaWTX said...

T-Rav, you must have ripped another hole in that alternate universe fabric!!!! That's what happens when you run with scissors!!!

Jon - did you not see the NO Pant Dropping Rule!! :)

Andrew, yep - I'll be here with bells on... or at least my laptop on.

Jon said...

Soory, rlaWTX. Nervously looking around for Bill . . .

Patti said...

i'm seriously thinking about skipping it and just having husband yell: BIN LADEN! every 10 minutes or so. of course i'll have a DRANK!

Joel Farnham said...

Hey Andrew,

Any thing come from the Democrat office being shot up? Do they have the shooter? Is there any information about how the window was shot out? Is it another inside job, or did they hid it better than last time?

Jon said...

How about the one who was giving away bottles of vodka for votes?

rlaWTX said...

Patti - that'd be less stressful and blood pressure-raising! :)

AndrewPrice said...

Patti, I think you just nailed what is going to happen tonight. LOL!

Jon, Nice avatar!

AndrewPrice said...

Joel, Not that I heard of. It never really was big news here and it kind of faded away. I think everyone understands that whoever did it is an idiot.

Jon said...

Ok, one more hour...I have my bowl of popcorn.

Joel Farnham said...

Forget the popcorn, What are the drinking rules tonight?

Is it every time Osama Bin Laden is mentioned?

Or is it going to be about lady parts?

BevfromNYC said...

Uh, Jon, who is giving away vodka for votes again?? Mmmm, not that my vote can bought that easily, but...umm, I'm just asking for a friend...yeah, a friend.

Jon said...

Good one!
Hear "Bin Laden," drink a shot.

Jon said...

Hi Bev,

It was Democratic state Rep. Hudson Hallum in Arkansas. Just saw it.

BevfromNYC said...

Why is there such a big push for early voting? Is this something new?

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, Hold out for the good stuff.

tryanmax said...

Hello all! Checking in. Is everybody ready?

BevfromNYC said...

Tryan - I'm on CSPAN...check!

tryanmax said...

What's his face on NBC is pointing out that tonight is the last night the candidates will see eachother until the election. It's like bad luck or something. Like seeing the bride before the wedding. Okay, I added some of that.

Jon said...

Here we go ...

tryanmax said...

If you look closely, you can see Bob's feeding tube.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanamx, I am well prepared. I have a drink. I'm well fed. And I have a suicide pill.

rlaWTX said...

wheeeeeee - and away we go...

AndrewPrice said...

What kind of intro was that? "Does anyone remember the Cuban Missile Crisis? Ah... those were the days."

BevfromNYC said...

No suicide pills, Andrew...that would be cheating.;)

tryanmax said...

If Bob is gonna ramble like this all night, it's gonna be a long one.

rlaWTX said...

OMG - I hate the look on TOTUS' face!!

Jon said...

Rock on Mitt!

BevfromNYC said...

I bet Pres. Obama says something about how things have to get worse before they can get better...

AndrewPrice said...

Romney's turned his personality on, which is a good sign.

tryanmax said...

I've heard one can die from mere exposure to extreme stupidity.

AndrewPrice said...

All right Bev, I'll grind it out.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, I think you just won the thread.

AndrewPrice said...

"We can't kill our way out of this mess." BRILLIANT!! That wins the night!

tryanmax said...

Wow. That was fast.

rlaWTX said...

if tryanmax wins, can we all drink and turn off the TV?

Jon said...

Appeaser in chief

BevfromNYC said...

He hasn't kept our EMBASSIES safe, but I guess WE are safe...

tryanmax said...

rlaWTX, only if you have Zingers®.

Patti said...

romney just deflated all other "bin laden" references by using it first!

Jon said...

"Your Strategy"

AndrewPrice said...

It's like Romney has been reading Commentarama!

BevfromNYC said...

Uh, talk about "all over the map", Mr. Obama...

tryanmax said...

It's an Obama pattern: rather than speak to his own strategy, he simply crafts a straw one for Romney and attacks it.

tryanmax said...

"Let's give the president a chance" What was that?

AndrewPrice said...

Bad form by Obama.

rlaWTX said...

I already want to be done listening to TOTUS

BevfromNYC said...

But I thought Al Qaeda was defeated...Obama killed bin Laden!!

Jon said...

Oh BS, BO. Like Russia doesn't have a hand in anything . .

rlaWTX said...

I HATE THAT MAD!!!!!

rlaWTX said...

*MAN!

Jon said...

The MAP, Google MAps?

tryanmax said...

Here's the difference: Romney is a candidate reacting to the random decisions of the sitting president. Obama is the sitting president making random decisions.

Joel Farnham said...

Obama failed and is trying to put it on Romney.

rlaWTX said...

attacking me is not an agenda!!!

tryanmax said...

Zinger®!

AndrewPrice said...

Nice answer by Romney, "attacking me is not an agenda."

Patti said...

OMG! romney is having this thread fed to him by ear mic!

Jon said...

Bravo, Mitt!

BevfromNYC said...

Why is Obama challenging Romney as if Romney has effected ANY policy? How can one be wrong when one has not done ANYTHING yet...

Flexibility!!! Good job.

rlaWTX said...

not letting TOTUS running things!!!!

Jon said...

Oooo in the weeds, go for it BO. Dwell there

tryanmax said...

Hmm. Musta just learned that. Like, two seconds ago.

BevfromNYC said...

Obama ACTUALLY SAID HE NEEDS TO BE CLEAR?????? WTF??? He is the most unclear President we have EVERY had!!!!!

rlaWTX said...

did he really just invoke Israel????

AndrewPrice said...

Obama is making clearly political attacks and distorting Romney's words, that comes across.

tryanmax said...

Oh, so BO likes Israel now?

Jon said...

Lay it out professor.

rlaWTX said...

I wonder if Romney practices straight-face??? He's doing pretty well...

AndrewPrice said...

So Obama agrees with Romney's plan?

tryanmax said...

Jon, that's racist! ;-)

AndrewPrice said...

Schieffer is not doing Obama any favors tonight.

BevfromNYC said...

Does Obama know that Turkey has already engaged with Syria??

rlaWTX said...

Bev, that was in that security briefing he missed...

AndrewPrice said...

Professor Romney... way to go.

AndrewPrice said...

So they both agree on Syria... except Obama is claiming they are opposed.

tryanmax said...

Romney is giving my brain a happy.

Joel Farnham said...

Obama is blinking his eyes. Almost twice as much as Romney.

BevfromNYC said...

Wow, Romney knows ALL of the countries in the Middle East!! I wonder if Obama can name them all.

rlaWTX said...

"leadership role" - that's not one TOTUS is familiar with

AndrewPrice said...

With 1/5th of the debate in, I am ready to declare this a draw.

BevfromNYC said...

Okay, so far, Romney knows his stuff...Obama, not so much.

Jon said...

Thanks for the bone, Obama

rlaWTX said...

If we declare it already, THEN can we turn off the TV?

BevfromNYC said...

I wonder what Assad is thinking right now?

AndrewPrice said...

"I don’t want to have our military involved in Syria."

That will be a winner with the public.

rlaWTX said...

Bev: "Go, Obama!!!"

AndrewPrice said...

rlaWTX, I wish.

Tennessee Jed said...

I agree with you Andrew - draw. There is not a lot of difference on Syria.

Jon said...

Moderate Syria . . . no plan

rlaWTX said...

"May I ask you..." You're the Moderator!!! Of course you can ask!!!

Patti said...

JFK!

Patti said...

rlaWTX: exactly what i thought when he said it.

Patti said...

his whole administration is unraveling.

Joel Farnham said...

Wow, Schieffer is staying out of the debate.

rlaWTX said...

now they have to make sure that they behave Western-ishly... Like Egypt cares what TOTUS thinks they HAVE to do!!!

AndrewPrice said...

I can't actually disagree with Obama on that... except he has no idea how to build jobs.

rlaWTX said...

this is a short answer???????????????

Jon said...

Hey, how about rebuilding our own?

rlaWTX said...

OMG - let's turn this into a domestic policy question!

tryanmax said...

Entrepreneurship conferences? Really?

AndrewPrice said...

Man, Romney is reading the Andrew Price Doctrine on foreign policy. :)

AndrewPrice said...

Nice... go after Obama on the economy!

Jon said...

That's it, back to USA keep going Mitt

rlaWTX said...

Now Romney's doing domestic policy - I guess, it's good to answer TOTUS's statements...

AndrewPrice said...

Romney is scoring some great quotes tonight.

Jon said...

ooohhh. Good topic. Smack him, Mitt

tryanmax said...

I think it's just illustrative that foreign and domestic policy are impossible to completely separate.

Patti said...

America MUST be strong. yes.

Jon said...

BRAVO!

AndrewPrice said...

Domestic = score.

This is a great recitation of the Obama record!

tryanmax said...

Wow, Romney really must have someone feeding him our thread!

rlaWTX said...

Romney's segue into domestic was smoother than TOTUS'..

BevfromNYC said...

Sheiffer is actually moderating well. He seems to have control, but is not getting involved in the debate.

Jon said...

Yes, stand for something/

Patti said...

people of this thread: we ARE the Illuminati!

AndrewPrice said...

Romney is doing a hell of a job slamming Obama without sounding negative or nasty. He almost sounds like he pities him.

rlaWTX said...

oooooh - that was a dirty look when Romney mentioned Iran's demonstrations...

tryanmax said...

I do have to give Bob credit. And he isn't wearing the worst tie.

Joel Farnham said...

Oh, snap! Green Revolution in Iran is not an energy policy.

Jon said...

Not stronger Obama, you ****!

rlaWTX said...

shhhhh, Patti, that's a secret!

BevfromNYC said...

Uh, oh, Obama's in the weeds...

AndrewPrice said...

This is not a platform that people are buying.

Patti said...

rlaWTX: dang, i forgot. must be the alkeeholz

rlaWTX said...

Is he answering the question about US's role?? Or is it just me?

Jon said...

Buy picking losers!!!!???

tryanmax said...

Does anyone else find 0bama's voice extremely hard to focus on?

BevfromNYC said...

BUSH!!! Drink...extra gulp for Cheney!

rlaWTX said...

tryanmax - TOTUS is just too cool for you!

Patti said...

tmax: i find myself drifting when he's speaking, but that could just be self-preservation.

Jon said...

Yes, smack him!!

tryanmax said...

That's gonna play well in the oil, coal, and nat. gas states.

tryanmax said...

rlaWTX, yeah, I heard that before about Coltrane. Pthzzz!

tryanmax said...

Patti, Zing!

BevfromNYC said...

Tryanmax - I have been unable to focus on his voice for 5 years now...

rlaWTX said...

"spending & borrowing binge"!

Jon said...

Obama's looking for an in . . . kind of lost

AndrewPrice said...

I am now leaning toward Romney winning.

BevfromNYC said...

Uh, how did we get off topic to domestic policy? Uh, Bob, can we get back on track here?

Jon said...

What wa his comment to Joe the Plumber? Yeah right BO

tryanmax said...

No, we need the kind of small business promotion that taxes anyone making $250,001 out of business.

Jon said...

Now, Joe the Teacher

rlaWTX said...

reformed education? when did the feds reform - cutting the DC voucher program?

Class size isn't as big of a deal educationally as teachers WANT!

AndrewPrice said...

Obama is literally just reading from one of his campaign commercials and it feels fake on tv and it feels fake now. Too many caveats.

BevfromNYC said...

Thanks Bob - Finally he said it - Let's get back to foreign policy?

tryanmax said...

#1 in English. Fine. But what about Spanish, eh Mitt?

rlaWTX said...

bipartsan!!

Jon said...

Uh oh . . . drifting

rlaWTX said...

good job, Mitt, ignore TOTUS!

Patti said...

i consult kiddos applying to college and you cannot believe their horrible writing skilz.

AndrewPrice said...

Does anyone get the feeling that Obama is just lying to help himself?

Patti said...

tmax: que?

The Village People said...

We'd go for a bigger Navy.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, They were Number Uno in Spanish.

Jon said...

Smack!

rlaWTX said...

jackass.

BevfromNYC said...

Andrew - Yes, I think that Obama is lying to help himself.

tryanmax said...

Patti: No sé.

Tam said...

Bob... help!

Jon said...

OB: $5 trillion. Keep lying

rlaWTX said...

1...2...3...4...10

tryanmax said...

Andrew, whatever 0bama is doing, he's totally pulling his numbers out of his @$$.

BevfromNYC said...

Wait, Obama's spent MORE on military spending? I thought he was CUTTING military spending. Isn't that what he's been doing??

AndrewPrice said...

Obama's said all of this before and it hasn't worked. This is a big mistake.

Jon said...

That's because you stink at math, BO

Patti said...

Programing note: i'm listening to the tv in the other room, as i play along here with y'all and all of a sudden: BOOM! channel change. I yelled to husband: I'm listening in here. Husband: can you tell my head just exploded?!

rlaWTX said...

"not driven by politics" bahhahaha

tryanmax said...

Maybe he took the same New Math that my mom did. She blames that for her poor math skilz.

Joel Farnham said...

Obama wants the military to have crossbows and horses.

BevfromNYC said...

Uh, our budget IS SO driven by Congress!! OF course there hasn't HAD a budget for all the years Obama has been President...

BevfromNYC said...

sequestration already HAS happened...

rlaWTX said...

JACKASSSSSSSS

AndrewPrice said...

Way to get insulting asshole.

Patti said...

WTH?! Horses and Bayonet? I smell an internets meme!

tryanmax said...

I heard a lot of shuffling in the audience when Obama used his horses and bayonets line. I'm thinking it didn't go over well.

AndrewPrice said...

Patti, Don't let your head explode!! Wear your helmet! :)

Tam said...

I hate him.

Jon said...

web site, did he read the Cliff notes?
