    Of "homework". It's time to move on and do what has to be done in remaining debates.

    •  The President of the United States (5+ / 0-)

      isn't some elementary student needing to be schooled. Whatever you think of his performance, strategy, closing statement, et al, it is both insulting and impolitic to demean him in such fashion.

      Nothing human is alien to me.

      during the debate, I thought that was going to be used in the closing, I was wrong. Homework is when you rehearse a closing statement as Romney did, it sounded like it was rehearsed and something he planned to say regardless of what transpired, sounded disengenous at the least. The closing was the opportunity to tie all of Romney's lies together, the  5 billion dollar tax cuts, the not knowing about the tax breaks from shipping jobs overseas, the pre-existing conditions lie, the 47% comment and of course firing Big Bird and Jim Leher. It was all there, he has talked about it forever, it should have been easy,  that is exactly what I was waiting for, hence my disappointment.
