As promised, here’s an update to my voter guide with the addition of a whole slew of endorsements from organizations. And lest you accuse me of showing only one side, I have included the SF Chronicle’s center-leaning endorsements as well (even though it makes me soul hurt a little).
I watched the first 45 minutes of the debate. Then I had to switch to radio (hooray for the iPod Nano’s radio tuner) while I walked to a 7pm appointment. Unfortunately, I missed the final half hour when shit got real.
During the part I did watch/listen to, I was pleased to see Obama go on both the offensive and defensive, both of which he failed to do in the first debate. I was also impressed with some of Romney’s attacks. They were well-rehearsed and packed a punch. Thankfully Obama verbally sparred and didn’t just roll over.
I was also amused when only minutes into the debate, Romney challenged Crowley on the rules, and she shut him down. Then he did it again and she kindly informed him he had the rules wrong. BAM.
Apparently I missed the moment in which Romney lost the debate. I did go back and watch the Libya kerfuffle when I got home and, yep. Romney blew it. As Rachel Maddow’s blog put it, Romney laid the trap and then walked right into it himself. Here’s the clip:
My roommate and I watched the Bill O’Reilly vs John Stewart Debate this morning. It’s too bad that our politicians will never go head to head in this way. It was so refreshing to see tough issues discussed. Of course, the infusion of humor helped too. But watch it, seriously watch all 90 minutes. It’s very good and thought provoking.
