Let's make a list of the domestic issues that won't even be mentioned tonight anywhere in the debate…
#1: Gun control. Even though they'll be standing just a few miles from the site of America's worst gun massacre ever - just 2.5 months ago!
#2 Wall Street crooks: no one will suggest the prosecution of those who crashed the economy. Or call for a return to the old regulations.
#3: Taking Obamacare even FURTHER. A single payer system that covers everyone. Ending the making of a profit off someone's misfortune.
#4: The NDAA authorizing domestic spying of our own citizens and the incarceration of citizens without a trial.
#QuestionsJimLehrerShouldAsk "GovRomney, should I keep my money in bonds or should I buy gold? Actually, I worked for PBS; I have no money."
"Pres Obama- We know u were miffed that Biden pushed u on gay marriage. Have u ever thought of surprising him w/ a big kiss on the lips?"
Gov Romney- Ppl say you're stiff. Would u like to dispel those rumors right now & do a little break-dance 4 us? #QuestionsJimLehrerShouldAsk
"Pres Obama- You're on a desert island, it's Sun nite, 9pm & u have no DVR. "Downton Abbey" or "The Good Wife?" #QuestionsJimLehrerShouldAsk
"Mr Romney: Blink once if you're really pro-choice. Blink twice if you secretly love and admire Obamacare." #QuestionsJimLehrerShouldAsk
Romney is channeling the look and sound of Reagan. Obama is giving a professor's lecture. Note to O: Don't wait til later to throw a punch.
Is Bill Clinton coming in to sub for the next quarter? O! Wake up! Attack! That is not john McCain over on that podium!
RT @GonzoKitchen @MMFlint no, you're right, One of the guys on that stage is acting presidential.. the other one, is a president.. weird.
Michelle! Give him the signal!
Romney looks like he's been lit different - brighter, sharper. You can see the difference by comparing their shirts.
Mr Prez, try this: "U wanna talk entitlements? It's the rich who feel entitled. Just 400 of 'em have more $$ than 160M Americans combined!"
Was Jim Lehrer coached by Clint Eastwood? Can anyone out there in the Twitterverse make any sense outta what he's doing?
No O! We r not in this dilemma because of "reckless behavior across the board." It was the reckless behavior of a frat boy w/ a credit card
Jim Lehrer structuring debate around the Republican lingo and agenda - "deficit" and "entitlements." Two whole segments already on these!
RT @MichelleStedry If Romney keeps this up...Obama is going to vote for him!
Hey Lehrer, the man from Bain Capital just said he was going to fire you and all of PBS! Get your man thing on and take down his sorry ass!
Obama please be Obama! You sound like a Democrat (wimpy).
Loud boom behind Obama just startled him. Aurora is at least 10 miles away. NO ONE will mention gun control anytime tonite.
Eastwood's chair would do a better job moderating this debate. Romney is both candidate and moderator. Has Clinton arrived yet???!
RT @pattonoswalt Hey Barack, there's no bonus for winning this without using "47%". It's not fucking Galaga. #debate
PBO - lemme get this straight. You can send in drones that kill civilians, but you can't stop Romney or Lehrer from interrupting you?
RT @CharlesMBlow: Are the real moderators on strike? #Debates
This is what happens when u pick John Kerry as your debate coach.
I just don't know what to say. Romney changed stripes again tonite, spoke many untruths and like a thief stole the night.
What's that silence I hear? No one throwing a party? No one saying this election is a slam dunk for Obama? What happened to the victory lap?
"President Romney?" Anybody worried now? Get it the F together, Team Obama. And the rest of us? What are WE doing tomorrow?
He couldn't say ANY of these words: "47%" "BainCapital" "FlipFlop" "Bush" "Detroit" "Women(&women's issues)" Fire all debate consultants now
RT @TheNewDeal Romney: I Will Repeal Obama's Bills & Replace Them with Bills That Will Do What His Does but I Can't Tell You What They Are.
What was going on? Wasn't this his anniversary? Why would he agree to a schedule that had a debate on his 20th wedding anniversary?
Get this: Obama spoke FOUR minutes longer than Romney did tonight! Didn't feel that way, did it? That sorta says it all.
RT @gnakamasu Voting for Romney is as stupid as having surgery, without knowing what it's for, or what the doctor will do to you.
For the past 2 days, the Right has been pounding their "Obama is an angry black man video." Did this affect O, that he had to appear timid?
Ok, here's my optimistic tweet: Romney didn't convince a single Obama voter to change their vote. But O needed to fire up the base. Not done
