    Only listened to the first 25 minutes on tax and Obama kept on about the $5 trillion tax bill and £2 trillion military spend of Romney, which Romney aggressively (for the USA) denied, but still Obama kept on with his loony left mantra.
    Surprised that anyone would vote for Obama to have won this debate.
    He brought up the employment record of Clinton, which will leave him open to Clinton’s acts in office, such as mortages with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae that led to the financial disaster now with us, and will resonate with the millions that have now lost their homes.
    Even the BBC soto voce stated Romney is considered the winner.
    Problem is that Obama has very very little to show for 4 years in office except the head of Osama.
    As different to Cameron addressing a walking wounded Brown, Romney took the attack to Obama and left him in disarray and repeating himself.
    I expect blood on the carpet at the White House today, and Obama to come out swinging in the next two debates. But he will have feathers in his gloves and will seek to make more promises as in the last election.

      Even Osama’s head isn’t worth much now with the September violence against embassies…

        That Libyan “Kinetic Military Action” dodge of the U.S. “war powers act” is looking rather foolish now.
        It means he cannot blame bipartisan support, it was totally his call.

    Don’t worry libtards. We’re busy raking up some obscure Mormon paedo stuff to sling at Romney before the second debate. We can’t have a prez who doesn’t support our position on abortion, wimmin’s rights and the entitlement rights of the underclass.

    you wouldn’t know this from SkyNews!!!

    SkyNews is now the self-appointed child abduction channel. Giving the public ‘unpresidented’ coverage of every tree, lane, hill, coffee shop and bumpkin in Wales at present to ‘help’ (in a kinda tory way) find one lost little girl. Meanwhile across the country other little children are getting lost but they don’t matter. Until thatis SkyNews employs more presenters and cameramen to cover ‘their stories’ too.

    Funny how SkyNews had the plight of the Hillsborough Families about last in their priority order? Funny how the Labour conference dowesn’t appear to be happening? Funny how even the problems in Syria don’t matter anymore – even though Cameron can’t wait to declare war.

    Anyone would think that Murdoch was behind this little stunt… dare I say it even involved to deflect from the real issues occuring in this ever so nazi country of ours……..

    Didn’t see this has I don’t have a telly, don’t have electricity, don’t have a house. Nicked an iPhone the other day so I can get free wifi in the local macdonalds and just spent a few quid on hearty breakfast and catching up on this richmans blog. These 2 yanks just look like a pair of rich c_nts one black one white, so not bothered to be honest
    Got my trousers today and later this afternoon down the local CoE drop in centre, warm and free food at dinner, plus there is some great middle age christian totty helping out. If I can get this piece of Apple crap to work I’ll send you some photos

    Problem that Obama has is that on individual policy points he trails Romney and is only still at the races because he has attacked the likability of the Republican. If Romney can overcome that in these debates and show Obama up as the rank amateur he is then the entire game changes.

    Won’t be even close – Romney’s plan just don’t add up. Skilled at talking up nonsense but how can you balance the budget as he says he wants to do, without raising taxes and only cutting spending but not on defense/medicare or education? If you say, he’ll get the economy growing again and everything will be great, please quit taking drugs. Cutting taxes does work in boosting GDP when tax levels are high (ie 60/70/80′s) but now the US tax take is the lowest of the OECD. Whether you are taxed 20 or 40%, you will invest if the returns are worth the risk – the tax level is irrelevant. (though of course, that situation changes if the effective rate gets above a certain level – probably over 60% – where capital owners might just not bother.)
    So ok, Romney looked arguably more at ease – but that is because he just doesn’t care – his what the bravado of the man who knows he’s going to lose, so he’s throwing everything he’s got. (he’s spent months hoping voters would forget about his Mass. healthcare reform, and now he says that’s what he’d do to replace Obamacare – which btw is very similar to the Mass. plan anyway – just bonkers – but the host just let him get away with these kind of nonsense – Send Paxman across, or Simon Cowell or Malcolm Tucker or anyone who will just challenge at least a little so they stop those blatant lies.

      But isn’t that the difference about Obamacare and the Romney Massachusetts plan ?

      It works when administered at STATE level but not at FEDERAL level. Romney made this very clear.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
