  •  Good stuff...but the debate is old news... (16+ / 0-)

    Unemployment is now 7.8%.  President Obama created 5.2 million jobs and Mitt Romney created zero...

    Let's not forget what's the real deal.  Vote Obama/Biden 2012.  

    Good news....unemployment is below 8% and that is change we can believe in.

      few days but please remember the MSM will be talking day and night about new polls coming out post debate and they may show some Romney gains. That bounce will fade by the end of the week.

      But the talking heads will be talking about the impact of the debate on new polls conducted post debate.

      •  I agree about the MSM (6+ / 0-)

        But isn't it about time for the progressives to focus on the good employment news?  This constant drum beat about last week's debate is frankly a Debbie Downer for our voters...it kills Democratic enthusiasm for the President and fuels the MSM and Fox News et.al. meme that the President is some how weak compared to Romney.  No one is focusing on the Employment news or Romney's many lies.  All I hear is liberals gnashing their teeth and expending lots of energy on yesterday's news and of course talking down the President a la 2010.  We know what happened that year...due to lack of voter enthusiasm.  

        C'Mon Man...debates don't decide elections but voter enthusiasm and their casting of votes do...

          to keep the energy up and refuel our engines and get  back out on the track for the race to the finish.

          If we lack energy and enthusiasm, it may rub off on other Democrats..we need to stay enthusiastic for the President in our GOTV which some of us are involved in.

    •  Debate mattered more than 7.8% (2+ / 0-)

      Last night SNL had a lot about the debate, nothing about the 7.8%.  I think the debate will continue to matter until the next debate, only because it was so disastrous for Obama and was the first good thing to happen in Romney's campaign.
