No, Monday night is the second debate between Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren. With four presidential matches and three between the senatorial candidates, debates are going to dominate my October TV watching.

Seems the general consensus is that Romney took the first debate tonight.

I agree, but I'm biased of course, msnbc is in meltdown mode, which is encouraging.

Content wise I thought it was pretty neutral, but Romney was better at delivering his points, I thought.  Obama was surprisingly not on his game.

He was probably tired from his Jay-Z, Beyonce, and other Hollywood parties.   I sure as hell know he wasn't tired from the Libya incident, through which he slept like a baby.

I'm surprised the reaction here has been so muted.  That was a commanding performance by Mitt Romney - he lead every topic, nailed every point, and appeared energetic, confident, and optimistic for the duration.  He waved away every policy position he's espoused over the past few years with such breezy authority, you'd think he'd never proposed them at all.

I thought it was a slam dunk win for Team Romney.

I don't think the response has been all that muted.  I think it was a huge night for Romney, and while I realize the impact of debates is negligible, I feel pretty confident last nights performance will give Romney a boost amongst independents.

Oh, over the course of ninety minutes, Mitt Romney promised the American people his presidency would deliver 20% lower taxes, higher wages, superior benefits, fewer regulations, more military spending, better healthcare, smarter schools, cheaper gas, green energy, zero deficits, and permanent fixes to Social Security and Medicare, and none of it would ever cost anybody anything.

Nothing he ever said or did prior to 9:00pm last night ever happened, and anyone suggesting otherwise was simply confused.

It was *amazing.*

I thought Romney hurling the half full bottle of Mad Dog 20/20 at Obama right before they cut to the commercial in the middle of the debate was a bit over the top.  But Obama was able to recover nicely and his posse threw a beat down on Romney's crew during the break, I heard.  I didn't watch any of it myself as I was busy smoking crack and making shit up.

It was his anniversary, so I suspect conjugal relations. Or maybe a big fight.

Romney clearly won on the performance level, which is the most important thing in a debate. People don't remember the substance so much as the delivery.

Substantively, it was a surprisingly boring debate.

It wasn't a TKO, but I'll bet it's enough to stop Romney's slide in the polls. If Obama doesn't come out swinging in the next two debates, Romney could still turn this around.

Wait, I thought the polls were the ones that were manipulated? They must have stopped skewing them now to counteract the manipulated jobs numbers. They wouldn't want to be too obvious about it. Glad you're on to them, Eco.

The president must have taken the team responsible for manipulating every political poll in America and reassigned them to manipulating nationwide job statistics.

Typical Obama.  If only he'd borrowed some of the guys who falsify global climate data, fabricate fossil records, or coordinate the War on Christmas, we could have had it all!

Drop of 8.1 to 7.8 August to September?  Why, that's a huge 0.3% drop.  We haven't seen that since ... December 2010 to January 2011 when it dropped 0.3%.  Or, y'know, November to December 2010 when it dropped 0.4%, both of which would have been to late to impact the midterm elections.  

Your assertion that the jobs numbers have been falsified is ridiculous.

I could give a shit about the political implications, I'd still like someone to explain to me HOW exactly the numbers falsification would happen. If Obama could magically do such a thing don't you think he would have done it by now?

Maybe instead of acting like a bunch of tools we can all be happy that the numbers are going down, something that's , you know, GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY regardless of political ideology.

In September, the household survey showed a whopping 873,000 increase in the number of people who said they found work. Thatís the biggest one-month gain in 29 years.  Fact, and reason to be skeptical...

Again, I ask for some kind of reasoning other than "impossible because Obama can do nothing right". Making a claim like that demands something to back it up, otherwise it comes off as petty and childish
