      historically the first debate just isn't that important.

      it was the best time to reset expectations.  they obviously had plenty of thinking going into this.  he didn't mention the 47% and other notables.

      the tell is his people directly after the debate.  msnbc is flipping out and his people are happy with his performance.

      i grew up with gambling and sandbagging is very popular. i think that explains it better than any other explanation as well.

      sure i could be wrong.  but we're seeing now that the bump Romney got was short lived.  they might have already knew the jobs numbers were going to be good.  

      who knows.  i do know one thing.  i am not worried.  i am not giving up.

        Biden unleased and Obama to make him cry.
        this is war and nice guys finish last.  The supreme court, our very American way is at stake so let the hammer down in HIS FACE and up close and personal.  Enough of the smiles at tea crap.  People want a blood sport.... ( metaphorically)...Give it to them..Rmoney drew first blood with the lies.  I don't want to bury more war dead including the ones denied healthcare and planned parenthood.  Not even counting wars in the middle east.

          we're partisans.

          sometimes that's what the general public wants too.

          they gambled and lost.  however, i think that was on purpose in part.  for various reasons. they didn't want to turn off independents or undecided voters.

          even though the optics of Obama losing the debate are bad, it might end up being a good thing.  it's hard to say looking at the polls.  

          i think we'll have to wait until the next debate.

          •  We are partisan and reasonable they are partisan (0+ / 0-)

            and insane and so are any one left undecided...Insane I mean.  The man has been running for president longer than Obama has been in the federal elections.
