Up for Debate: Romney takes round one

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 at 11:40pm

Mitt Romney appeared to handily win the first of the 2012 presidential debates against President Barack Obama. Discuss the main points scored by each candidate. What were the weaknesses of each candidate? Where did their rhetoric stray from facts? What adjustments do you see each candidate making for round two?

"brrrrk - bud wouldn't know, she was too busy nosing into everybody's business & eavedropping, IF she even was in Aldis."

I just thought that, given her description, that she might have seen her reflection.... :-)

brrrrk - LOL

That old girl must not have a thing to do, if she has time to stand around and eavedrop on a phone conversation in a grocery store. That's low!

brrrrl - Good linc, but too factual for the likes of yogi.

By: bfra on 10/4/12 at 3:45

brrrrk - Well the l in the closest neighbor to the k. Sorry!

A troll running freely in a grocery store. Not very clean, I would think.

The paragraph I quoted was from the NRA website. Look at the damn address.

By: bfra on 10/4/12 at 3:52

Blanket - His computer probably doesn't get authentic web sites, just trash ones. If he is a member of the NRA, which I doubt, he should be able to find it easily.

By: bfra on 10/4/12 at 3:53

Nemo - Maybe she had her handler with her! LOL

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/4/12 at 3:56

bfra, that dumbass can spend all day long sitting in his diaper reading conspiracy websites but heaven forbid that lazy jerk simply go to www.factcheck.org. He doesn't WANT to know that it is a lie. What fun would that be? And it certainly wouldn't fit in with his worldview - it's just easier to spread lies.

By: bfra on 10/4/12 at 3:59

Blanket - That has been proved from the first comment the old demented crone put on the board.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/4/12 at 4:03

brfa, people who CHOOSE to be stupid annoy the crap out of me. Unbelievable.

You have to translate that into Yogi...

Th' pareegraph ah quoted was fum th' NRA website. Look at th' dadburn address.

lol, brrrk. I forgot to use the translator. 8~)

By: bfra on 10/4/12 at 4:10

He nor his ilk can even come back with a plausable response. The are more like a 2 or 3 yr. old with "you too".

By: Captain Nemo on 10/4/12 at 4:10

Just relax Blanket. It is old and its brain had died a long time ago.

By: bfra on 10/4/12 at 4:11

s/h/b They

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/4/12 at 4:12

True, Nemo. We need to have lunch soon!

By: bfra on 10/4/12 at 4:12

Nemo - Do you really think, at one time, it had one?

By: yogiman on 10/4/12 at 4:19

I'll look that up, brrrrk. Hows do you spell NRA?

By: yogiman on 10/4/12 at 4:27

I'll admit, children, if I was as brilliant as y'all thank you are.. WOW!!! I'd be the smartest man on this planet, except for you girls. Y'all r dumber than a cow p!ssing on a flat rock.

The board looks lonely with out d7. Hope he is having a safe trip & enjoys his new home.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/4/12 at 4:34

Yeah, bfra - I was just wondering that earlier today.

What did Mitt win? He proved that he was a total liar. He should make an apology to the Moderator. Who in the hell does he think that he is? Becasue he is rich, he wants us to bow down to him. Good God!

By: Rasputin72 on 10/4/12 at 5:37

PSSwindle............As an integral part of the "Simple Six" and obviously not a part of the 1% and the 2% and the 10% you should be willing to share what contributions you have made to mankind that offsets your failure to have money?

By: bfra on 10/4/12 at 5:43

Raspy - I'll bet pswindle doesn't go in a place to have dinner & order more than he can pay for.

By: Rasputin72 on 10/4/12 at 5:50

Another of the "Simple Six" has spewed his class envy!

By: bfra on 10/4/12 at 5:54

Raspy - No envy here! I can afford what I buy.

Turns out Clint Eastwood was prescient. Romney showed the empty suit in the empty chair withe the empty rhetoric.
