    and the momentum will continue in his favor.

    All of the GOP/conservative pundits are in lock-step on this, and they decided on this meme BEFORE the fucking debate.

    We should know by now that this is the strategy. We and the rest of the left don't call one another and agree on a meme.
    They do.

      to all the Obama supporters still whining on about the first debate....even on this thread!!

      No way in hell would the other side be doing that if the situations were reversed. They would have buried the first debate never to be spoken off again. I suggest O supporters take a leaf out of their book!

      •  Exactly. But the left won't do that. We'll all (0+ / 0-)

        insist on the need to tell the truth. And this is a virtue as far as integrity and honesty are concerned, but politically it's often a loser. What to do about this? I sure don't have the answer.

    •  Not the geography test! (0+ / 0-)

      But that doesn't really matter as long as they win and they can blow shit up and kill people.

    •  We aren't the part of 'the left' that sets any... (0+ / 0-)

      media narrative. That would be our friends in the consultant class. The part of our party that couldn't care less what gets said here.

      When the Times or even the Daily Beast start taking quotes from us instead of Mark Penn et al, we can discuss how this site comports itself in the larger discussion. For now we are in a relative backwater and should take that opportunity to discuss whatever the hell we want, however we want.

      That said, what meme would you have us follow?
