  •  Agreed. The lie machine was working OT last (6+ / 0-)
    The man if painfully ignorant about FP issues, he has no diplomatic skills whatsoever, and his top advisors are all neocons.  If we see last night's Obama next week, he should put Romney's campaign on life support.
    night as apparently there were 21 lies in 40 minutes.  So the Mittster outdid himself.  The pattern seems to be, the more called out or smacked down, the more Rmoney needs to regain control of the situation.  Our POTUS was so effective last night because he did call out Rmoney over and over and over again.

    Let's hope Bob Schieffer will take some lessons from Candy Crowley and not let the Mittster steamroll over him.  And if that does get tried that Obama will do what he did last night, and that was to jump in; not be passive.

      Bob is probably one of the nicer, more affable fellows on a major news network but he probably has even less of a spine than Jim Lehrer. R-Money is going to trample him and leave him for road kill.

      Is Bob Schieffer and Jim Lehrer the best we can do? Shouldn't these guys get a chance to retire to the south Florida Keys or something?

        going to feel the treads of the Sherman tank that is the Mittster all over him.

        Road kill?!  I had to laugh but I think you could be right.  The thing is I think a lot of people that watched last night that were undecideds are going to be tuning in Monday too.

        If these same people tuned in to the first debate, saw Obama and Lehrer get run over by the Mittster they might think, "Romney won".  If these undecideds tuned in last night to debate #2 then they saw Romney attempting to steamroll Candy Crowley unsuccessfully b/c Crowley stood up for herself and our POTUS also jumped in to make sure he didn't get bulldozed by the Mittster.  I think Romney WILL try to make road kill out of Bob Schieffer and I'm feeling pretty confident that President Obama won't let him run roughshod over him again - or possibly jump in to aid Bob Schieffer too.

        It'll definately be must see TV.

        Bob wants people to like him -- i just don't he's got it in him to cross romney.

        Nothing against getting old, i'm 70 next year. Truth is we don't need some fat, well off and onconcerned about his retirement or medicare.

        If you've got to have a 75 year old hack, find one of h many fired before they could take real retirement and survive only on social security and medicare.
