    It really doesn't matter what you "convince" them of, as long as whatever it is gets them to vote for you instead of the other guy. Maybe convincing them that the other guy is a lying, super-rich piece of shit would help with that. Or just that he's untrustworthy. Obama only convinced people that he lost the debate.

    •  You're a spectacularly unhelpful person. (16+ / 0-)

      Between stating the painfully obvious (supposed to get people to vote for you) and the woefully unsupported (Obama only convinced people that he lost the debate), what exactly have you got for us?

      I know bloggers like what bloggers do, but actually calling Romney a liar...or any names....isn't "winning".   There's a month and a hundred million dollars to point out Romney's whoppers...that's how to win.

      •  What's "unhelpful" is warm and fuzzy thinking (0+ / 0-)

        of the sort you're evidencing when you say "There's a month and a hundred million dollars to point out Romney's whoppers...that's how to win." Obama, the only person anybody wants to listen to (besides Romney), could have pointed out Romney's whoppers FOR FREE IN FRONT OF THE BIGGEST AUDIENCE OF THE WHOLE CAMPAIGN. You admit that that's how to win...and he didn't do it.

        Based on his ability to command attention, and what he's done with it, the most unhelpful person in the entire campaign is Obama himself. Sorry if my frustration is showing.

        •  You don't know much about much. (0+ / 0-)

          It's a big free audience....were you one of them?...but unless you think there's sixty million bloggy snots who get woodies on an insult in swing states, what's your point?  Most of the audience isnt even going to be receptive to that.

          I suspect you should reconsider if Obama really is less helpful than you.  It seems he's winning and that you aren't.
