Although historically the debates have not been a significant factor; this may not be the case in this race. One huge advantage the Romney camp has during the debates is to be able to hammer home the point that the incumbants first four years were basically a loss. There has not been o whole lot of talk about "change" as the first four years were not a positive change. That really is the crux for me. I have already lived four years of change, time to give someone else a chance.
If I were in the undecided category, I would not vote for the Biden side because of his attitude.
However since I am an Independent and It seems I cannot hope for a Ron Paul win. I am stuck with Romney.
Biden was a jerk that "ebellished" quite a few facts. Ryan looked like a shy little bookwormy professor that has a hard time relating to people. He looks like he's more comfortable with books or in a lab or something. Biden seems like the type of guy that smokes cigars in the back room making shady, underhanded deals...a good 'ol boy. If I had to choose based on V.P.'s and last night's debate, I would choose Ryan.
I took a break and went on a trip to the mountains for a week and never, not one time turned on a television.
This maybe my new norm.
Governor Romney will win the debate tomorrow night because BHO can't run from his failed record and the Govenor has a record of success of reaching across party lines in Massachusetts which was 87% Democratic during his tenure. I still don't understand how people can put party, race and ideaology ahead of the fate of this nation.Especially when we have a Phony In Chief to Fire!
I too don't understand how people can put party, race and ideology ahead of the fate of this nation.
Some folks are sheep as they step up to the harness and willingly wear the blinders.
They are the problem.
Hi Sebe. Just got back from voting...fair amount of traffic but not like it will be on Election Day.
I guess I can see where you are going with your vote. Course you know I hate to see it going that way. But considering how we both view Zig-Zag Zell in different lights, I only hope that other Zig-Zaggers do not follow you or him to the voting machine.
BTW: Romney's nose is longer. He just can afford a better plastic surgeon than BHO.
JimmyMack, your eyes might be wide open but to some you appear to have the blinders on just like a plowmule.
Sebe: see my answer to your PUHHHAHLEEEZZZ comment on another blog and the answer to the one above.
TOT: What's your real name? Does it rhyme with Howard???
Well, I cannnot remember a Lucky from BI or elsewhere. I really do not mind some anonymity here as long as it does not involve anonymous criticism, or name calling or labeling of me or others. And I think TOT you are walking a fine line here when it comes to some remarks you've slung in my direction: : "blinders on"...."mule cart something or other"....Your quote that "many here think etc etc etc...about me... Really now? When did you run and get elected to represent what "many here think about me?" Did I miss your election to that post.
No Tot. You are on the verge of becoming an anonymous name caller. A Coward (rhymes with Howard)of sorts. A bit more of this will afford me liberty to take it up a notch or two.
JimmyMack my intent was not to offend you individually.
I don't understand people blindly staying a course because of party affiliation.
I am neither Democrat nor Republican.
I'm probably close to being a Libertarian but then I'm not one of them either.
I'm American and proud of that, very much so.
I've tried to express my opinions without personally offending any one blogging on this site.
Some here seem to be looking for a fight with their nasty comments about others.
Having said these things I also must add, if the shoe fits then wear it.
Take it wherever you will I will tolerate any reasonable rhetoric and will respond in kind.
Bring it on if you must.
TOT: I only "bring it" to those that deserve it. I think you are walking a fine line, espescially lately.
So, TOT, the reality is: There are Democrats and Republicans. TWO DIFFERENT politcal species. Both parties go after each other for winning the Independents with no party affiliation to win elections. Third party candidates are perennial losers in this game. I have made my choice on whose OVERALL policies that I will support and that is the Democratic Party.
I am not bothered by your Libertarianism. It just has a snowballs chance in Hell of winning in the environment of the TWO party system we are in.
However, as noted above, your comments regarding ME indicate a flirtation with personal denigration. I have learned to play better in the Sandbox and also have learned the "legal" way to fire off verbal\written salvos if necessary.
I aim to meet like with like regarding the scribblings on this cyber bathroom wall.
I must now excuse myself to all here in preparation for GAMEDAY.
Activities today include: wearing a Florida Gator hat (yes I said that) for a few hours, firing up the grill for some fish that have been marinating all nite, unwrapping the forever ubiquitous Saturday potato salad, and preparing baked Vidalia Onions with butter, sour cream and worteshire (sic) sauce.
Washed down with some Amber Bock Brewskies.
Then watching the Dawgs trounce Kentucky at 7:00 pm.
