    Enough for it to actually matter?

    •  There it is. Romney got his little (8+ / 0-)

      bounce from his lie-strewn debate event, but yesterday's polling in Ohio shows the President retaining a lead -- and without Ohio, Mitt Romney is gonna be one shipwrecked sailor.

      Obama and Biden need to win their respective debates and Obama needs to quit talking about Big Bird multiple times per day.  If he continues to allow Romney to build his own credibility while diminishing his own by reducing the election discourse to a referendum on Sesame Street, we will discover that one round of bad poll numbers begets another round of bad poll numbers.  The same undecided voters who found Obama's debate performance intolerable after several days of the pundits trashing it will be just as eager to rally towards the popular guy if the polls keep turning towards Romney.  A TKO at the coming debates will reverse this negative momentum, but at this point I don't think that simply fighting the other guys to a draw is enough.

        as I promised elsewhere, I link to my diary on the topic....

        Don't let debate panic become the new narrative

        aka: Less than a month to go until election day. It's time to channel your inner hack.

        I hope; therefore, I can live.

          debate prep or something?

        Some MSM and the Rmoney campaign are talking about big bird but Obama isn't except for a few jokes and one small ad buy. You and a few other dems are helping them push their lies for some reason known only to yourselves. We know why the MSM and the GOP are pushing their lies but why you're joining them is a mystery.

        America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity
