    I may come over to what my friend Rick Barker calls "the dark side" by voting for Mitt Romney after his performance in tonights debate. I never realized that Mitt was in fact a Moderate Borderline Socialist who did not want to cut the entitlements that Obama wants to keep in place. Just shows you that ya cant judge the book by it's cover. Thanks Mitt.

    I haven't voted for a Moderate Republican since George H.W. first term. I can't wait to see Mitt sit down with both parties reps. on his first day to see him finally get this country moving again! I'm stoked!

    Blade, Who do you think has the best chance of bringing both parties together?
    Getting something done in congress? Moving "forward"?

    When Oblama talked about "transparency" back in 2008, I never realized he was talking about the airspace in between his ears. Boy's just plum stupid. Without the benefit of lies and deception to cover his obvious socialist/communist agenda, he's basically a man with no value. Axelrod, Jarrett, Soros, and his trusty teleprompters should have been out there tonight to go up against Mitt....'course Mitt would have handed them their asses, too.

    Blade, Pay attention....those guys aren't running for El Prez. So you agree, B.O. is not the best at that?

    While I was impressed by Romney's performance, I still want to see details of his plans. He kept repeating what he was going to do, but as we all know, making it all happen is another thing. He is going to cut taxes even more for the wealthy, while keeping the Bush tax cuts in place for others, and eliminate deductions. Which Deductions? Deductions that the middle class depend on? He says that it will not cut the income. Hmmm. How is that possible?
    There will have to be many eliminated deductions, to make up for the tax cuts he is proposing. Will they also be deductions from the middle class, such as mortgage interest? He is going to strengthen our military. How is he going to pay for it? He is going to create 12 million new jobs. Hopefully it is in the first year as President, because if not the debt will rise at a faster rate than it is now. All he is proposing will be paid for, with the income from the taxes, of those jobs. That is a hell of a gamble. Like I say, it all sounds good right now, but making it happen is a totally different ballgame. I would need more definition, as far as exact details, before I would make a decision.

    He definitely opened my eyes with his aggressiveness, and basically taking control over the debate. That is what he needed to do. We will see what happens with a different moderator, in the next two debates for President. The V.P. debate will be the opposite, as far as aggressiveness goes, IMO. Though it is not as much of a determining factor, as far as voter persuasion.

    Anyways, congratulations to Romney, and the Republicans for doing exactly what was needed to be done, in this debate.

    Blade,

    Don't worry...your wasteful, extreme, inefficient Defense Industry Government Industrial complex will be well taken care of in a Romney Presidency.

    Thanx for your support,

    buzz

    Flyn, We have to elect him so we can see what his plan is. Sound familiar? (Pelosi on the health care bill).

    "While I was impressed by Romney's performance, I still want to see details of his plans. He kept repeating what he was going to do, but as we all know, making it all happen is another thing."

    We've been waiting 3 1/2 years for the "details" of what Jughead is going to do. How about the detail of Obamacare, or do "We have to pass it, to find out what's in it."? One of the "most transparent of Presidencies" turns out to be devoid of detail, except maybe a vacation or golf or Letterman itinerary. I guess details about spending 1.7 trillion bucks on cell phones and EBT cards makes you happy, so why worry about what Romney may do? At least it's obvious Romney knows how to run a business. The other guy has trouble with an unbrella.

    Oh, by the way, what were the details of John Kerry's plan to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? How about the details of what happened in Benghazi?

    Those who want "to see the details of his plan" are SOL! What few details he revealed last night will get him in hot water as it is. No cuts in education? No alteration of SS? Providing the "good parts" of Obama Care? No new taxes to pay for his health care and budget plans? The 5 trillion dollar bill for his plan is a credible number by a non-partisan group that included a Bush budget expert. His move to "Center" last night will create a furor within the Tea Party. I was taught a long time ago in business,if you want to maintain control over a negotiations or a business meeting, you control the agenda! That's exactly what Romney did last night. Jim Lehr was a very, very poor Moderator by losing control 5 minitues into the debate and by letting Romney push him around. Romney did what he probably was very good at while he was in business. Now.... I feel that the next debates will be more revealing. No one should question Mitt Romney's Business savy. Everyone should question his expertise in Forgiegn Policy. Can't wait for the next debate.

    "Lost without his teleprompter". That would be the Manchurian Candidate.

    A candidate 'of the people'. Yes.

    Whose people we are still learning.

    Foreign policy? I think the circumstances in which Ambassador Stephens died, and Obama's desperate attempt to hide his administrations failure to provide any realistic level of security for those people says all that needs to be said about his foreign policy expertise.

    The only thing Obama is good at is admiring himself.

    Romney has given details of his plans. Unfortunately the main/lame stream media does not show this. Watch FOX for a day and get the truth. See actual news instead of showing you how to put your nail polish on properly. go to mittromney.com to get ALL teh info.

    aah, and the REAL Blade finally stands up! ......the 'please don't throw me in the Bria patch' opening, didn't hold up for long.

    The 'detail' is in more/new jobs, many more. Nobama's approach of taking from one pocket and putting it in the other doesn't enrich us....unless you borrow and print on the way across the body-politic. 4 years ago the Dem's put up an empty-suit so they could fill their personal pockets with easy money. They've done it every day since, and killed the value of our dollar, and America in general. Last night we finally got the first glimpse of the depth of empty-suit.

    I'll say it again - Pee-lousy, dirty Harry, Axlrod, Frank, Clinton(s) are all 1%'ers. They, and their minions are getting rich while hoodwinking all the useful idiots they can mesmerize with shinny new cell phones and empty promises. They have crushed the middle, and lower class, not helped it.

    "Wake the F..Up". They never will help any class diluting the fiat dollar, and they know it. We're now on QE3 (actually QE4 when you count the Stimulus). Einstein was right about this political insanity.

    Romney gave the people more actual 'facts' than Nobama and his 400 thieves have in 4 years. The successful history of cutting taxes is there for anyone to see. Less taxes = more capital available for enterprise. Less (federal)government means our money stays closer to home where it can be accounted for and used in meaningful manner. Or, can be held accountable.

    "Give a child a fish, they eat for one day. Teach a child to fish, and they eat for a lifetime." More Liberal Arts and Black Studies degrees don't prepare children for life, just discontent. Pouring endless borrowed-money into unstructured Education isn't an answer to America's problems, but it is to buying the 'stuck on stupid' votes.

    It won't take long for the Obamabots to find a way to put an ugly spin on the debates. You can see it right here, first. You bottle-fed libbers can close your eyes again, your Emperor will protect your mental sloth.

    Rick... the house has about 25 Tea Party members who will always stand in the way of the Republican majority (if they win it) just like they have done for the past 2 years. Least we forget the budget agreement between Obama and Bhoner last year then the GOP renig'd because Cantor couldn't sell it to the Tea Party members. I agree with you that the House and Senate are the driving factors here. However, the House has such a low approval percentage, but yet they will constantly and continuely have to negotiate with the Tea Party faction to get anything done. I doubt that based on the way the last two years has gone, it'll make little difference who wins the Presidency.

    R. Kipling? take another hit off that crack pipe ok?

    Great, just as I suspected, you can't counter with reason, so you make a weak attempt at ridicule. Let me return the favor. Coming from the Michael Moore of TS.com, I consider your dig a compliment. Even a crack addict can out think Zero and his useful idiots. Oh, wait, Zero is a crack addict. Damn, out-foxed yourself, again.

    You're once again Persona Non Grata. Buzz is correct.
