Here you go!

This one is about foreign policy and should be interesting since the 2nd debate's memorial moment was regarding Libya. I guess that will make a great starting point.

Yeah, Romney's supposed to have his biggest disadvantage for this one, but his disadvantages haven't really panned out all that well so far, so we'll see.

I think that a lot of people have the same reaction as I have described. It's not just me.

True, roughly 15-20%, the TEA Party fringe.

Well, a lot of people "agree" in that they see that as a key moment in the debate, but generally people are interpreting it as a moment to Obama's favor, and I'm guessing you've worked it out so it goes the other way (rather, you accept the rhetoric of those who have worked out the mental gymnastics because it arrives at a "conclusion" that pleases your personal sensibilities--it tickles your rather handicapped ears). In fact it showed that Romney's using American deaths for his own political purposes, and it showed that it's a line Obama won't put up with him, crossing because it dishonors those very Americans, who Obama considers friends. That's the way that little exchange played in the media as well ... at least in the real world. I'm sure that's the case for Faux (et al).

What in the world would you know about the 'real' world? LOL!

Yesterday, everybody spent all day trying to explain that moment in the debate: meaning candy really screwed the pooch for obama. She thought she was helping when in fact...NOT.

In fact, on Tuesday, I bet a lot of you guys are going to start playing the 'blues', so get your licks in order.  :D

"generally people are interpreting it as a moment to Obama's favor"?  Sure. If your an idiot, Kool-Aid drinking, head-in-the-sand, left wing lunatic.  I agree.

Actually, I am  going to be playing the blues.  And some Handel as well.  My quintet is going to be playing a bunch of it for Christmas and we have a rehearsal on Tuesday.

I'd like to see if Romney does another "etch-a-sketch" moment and swings around.  I mentioned in the last debate thread that his comments about the Chinese weren't going down well in China -- and we need them as a big trading partner.

So we shall see...

Well, since they have no vote in our election, even tho' they have contributed heavily to obama's campaign funds, and funds don't count as votes, Mitt is fine.

Obama has his faults.  I think they are called wing-nuts.  But at least I pretty much know who Obama is.  I have no idea who Romney is - today.

That's because you've been getting all your information about rmoney on this trombone forum. You need to broaden your internet info web sites between your video recordings (I listen to them BTW).

Will you still be singing the same tune if they decide to retaliate against Romney by cutting off supply lines?  How you gonna do your networking with no cable, no interface boxes, and no computers?

One thing I have noticed about you is that you make assumptions and present them as facts.  You don't know where I get my news.

So YOU'RE the one! Lol.  If you have any suggestions for improvements I can make, please let me know - either on one of those posts or a PM.  Thanks.

Hey, first thing we can do is re-open Campaq here in Houston! Man, would that be great. Everytime I went to their campus, they always had the greatest looking babes I ever seen in one building. 

Bring it on!

I probably learned that behavior from my fellow trombonites here.  Don't know

How is Compaq going to build any computers with no components? Evil
