    people do.  Do you think most of the country really gives a flying fuck?  9/7 was the best date for Obama to pick...even though it may have been inconvenient for the master debaters.

      I'm on board with Obama giving that speech when he's giving it, bruns.  I guess I'm not as much of a blindfold-wearin' partisan as some in our party and sometimes I see that political maneuvers cause more problems for either particular party than they do benefits.  

      I know that it's popular to come up with defenses for this speech being given at the same time/date as the repub prez debate and I know that looking at this "outside the box" here is seen as almost sacrosanct...but, I'm just a realist and to be honest, I see this as something that could come back on us.  There's one thing that is absolutely certain and that is that if Obama decided to give his speech on another date/time, FAR more people would be hearing/seeing it.  

      I guess I'll just fade away from this issue now.
