        I think it's extreme hyperbole to think we're going to have a downballot slide based on one bad Presidential debate in what has been a long campaign where Obama has weathered so much already.

          The issue driving the polls since the Convention is Medicare/Vouchercare, Medicaid (paying for grandma in the rest home, as Bill Clinton explained), and protecting Social Security. The debate didn't change any of that.

          I wish Obama and his spokespeople would shut up about cutting the deficit and all that Repub talking point shit. He may remind voters that you can't make much of a dent in the budget by cutting Big Bird -- he'll have to cut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Obama seems to yearn to do that because he mistakenly thinks it's needed, but electorally, it is a sure loser.

          If House and Senate candidates keep standing up to protect Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security -- without getting misty-eyed about Bowles Simpson and Grand Bargains to slash entitlements -- they will do fine.

          •  I liked Baldwin's answer to those much better (2+ / 0-)

            She actually had a zinger for that question- "It's not a program, it's a promise". I was really looking for Obama to say something like that.
