Liveblog: Debate the Second

by: Shaun Appleby

Tue Oct 16, 2012 at 20:50:40 PM EDT



The next pivotal episode of "Who Wants to Be a President?" is about to begin:


Topic: Town meeting format including foreign and domestic policy
Air Time: 9:00-10:30 p.m. Eastern Time
Location: Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York (Tickets)
Sponsor: Commission on Presidential Debates
Participants: President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney
Moderator: Candy Crowley (CNN Chief Political Correspondent)

The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which citizens will ask questions of the candidates on foreign and domestic issues. Candidates each will have two minutes to respond, and an additional minute for the moderator to facilitate a discussion. The town meeting participants will be undecided voters selected by the Gallup Organization.

Given the stakes and a second opportunity for the media to change the course of the election with subjective scoring this should prove riveting.

Romney... (2.00 / 2)
Doing the same thing again; he's a moderate Republican in all but actual policy.  Why did we expect any different?

there's nothing else in the can. (2.00 / 3)
that's it.  their one chance.  lie.  constantly.

[ Parent ]
Obama... (2.00 / 4)
Pretty much on point.  Making good specific responses.  Romney whiffed the first one on college-leaver job opportunities.

[ Parent ]
obama was intense. (2.00 / 4)
he's charged.  this could get good.

[ Parent ]
Romney Still... (2.00 / 4)
Locked into bad-mouthing the economy.  Nobody is getting his parsing on Detroit and bankruptcy; flatlined.

Obama (2.00 / 3)
May have fired prematurely on Romney's lies.  But he's following up strongly.

[ Parent ]
ONE POINT PLAN! (2.00 / 3)

[ Parent ]
Yeah... (2.00 / 3)
Romney is gonna try to run over Crowley like he did Mr. Deadeyes.

Does not look like she is gonna rollover as easily.

Obama... (2.00 / 4)
Is coming across pretty focussed this time.  Well presented narrative between his first term done and his second term to do lists.

[ Parent ]
Romney is Flatlined... (2.00 / 3)
Whenever he badmouths the Obama administration.  He sounds petty when painting Obama as a greenie.  "Mr. Coal?"  Seriously.  Romney is having mixed success then pretending to be about energy independence.

Heh... (2.00 / 3)
"Very little of what Mr Romney says is true."

[ Parent ]
Point Obama (2.00 / 4)
Big one.  I sure hope Obama is right.

They Are Really... (2.00 / 3)
Having at it.  Talking directly.  Romney is aggressive but rattled.

Romney... (2.00 / 3)
Is making this tax thing sound confusing.  If Obama can simplify the narrative he'll win this vital round.

Obama... (2.00 / 5)
Is killing this tax thing.

so.....he's not going to tax my dividends or cap. gains? (2.00 / 5)

Romney... (2.00 / 4)
Did he say "foreign?"  He's rattled, he doesn't have a compelling narrative, just a quilt of sound bites.  He's confusing.

Candy needs to STFU... (2.00 / 5)
and stop letting Romney have the last word on every question.

This was supposed to be a Town Hall..not a Candy Crowley moderated debate with a couple of questions.

(BTW...Romney is A DICK)

Coincidentally... (2.00 / 4)
Crowley cuts off Romney when he's made an ass of himself and it leaves it hanging in the air like an unpleasant smell.

But, she could cut him off at any point and get the same result....n/t (2.00 / 3)

i don't think anyone in that room believes him right now on taxes.

The tactic is to sow doubt about Romney's honesty and competence (2.00 / 5)
He's overselling - and doing that undermining himself

You Know... (2.00 / 3)
After what I've seen in the last three weeks nothing would surprise me.

[ Parent ]
I honestly will be surprised if they call it an Obama WIN.... (2.00 / 5)
They will say it was 'a spirited debate' that 'both' held their own....

'both' scored points....

'both' did what they had to do (Obama had to show some spirit...Romney had to not shit his pants on stage)...

they will call it a 'draw'....

or 'slight advantage Obama'...

but...I doubt they will say Obama WON it.

They need the horserace.

Fuckers.

quotes from fb: (2.00 / 4)
Mitt Romney is a dumbass and a liar... and he wants to eliminate taxes on interest, dividends and capital gains... to help the middle class... as if those are middle class things.

If you vote for him, you're a stupid fuck... unless you're rich... in which case you're a selfish asshole.

According to Romney, if you are going to have women in your workforce..."You need to be more flexible." He is so clueless and out of touch it is disgusting!

Oh shit. Obama is on fucking fire!

He's going a bit overboard the other direction - but I agree with him on the second Libya response, the only zinger moment which will play and play

10.16 pm. Wow. President Obama just eviscerated Romney. As an alpha male. It's hard to convey genuine offense without seeming aggressive. But Obama made Romney look cheap and political over a tragedy like Benghazi. But I'm not sure what the Rose Garden transcript actually says. We'll find out.

[ Parent ]
CNN... (2.00 / 4)
Got themselves into a proper tongue twisting competition over who won.  Everyone else seems pretty clear Obama won by TKO.

Prediction scorecard time (2.00 / 5)
In another diary, I predicted this:

Second Debate

Obama - A- for plus energy, engagement, forum, media setup, possible minus for moderator and response Benghazi coverup
Romney - B- for minus forum, failed fake empathy, lack of practice, media setup, possible plus for moderator

So Obama gets an A because Crowley done good and Benghazi, rather than a minus became a plus.

Romney gets a C because, again, Crowley done good and Benghazi, surprisingly was a minus.

After this, I'm going to throw some (for me) serious change at Intrade. There is an arbitration/hedging opportunity having to do with the House that could pay 25-1 or even.

There was only one joker in L.A. sensitive enough to wear that scent...and I had to find out who he was!


Good Luck (2.00 / 5)
Kerry very persuasive and cogent on an overwhelming victory for Obama on specific points.

[ Parent ]
Kerry (2.00 / 5)
"...this is the day the Romney campaign starts unravelling."

[ Parent ]
Heh (2.00 / 4)
Channeling Kevin Drum at Mother Jones?


Obama was, obviously, way better. I'd give him an A-. But Romney was better too. I'd probably give him a strong B or a B+.

But you knew before he did.


[ Parent ]
I'll tell ya (2.00 / 6)
The Benghazi issue was going to be the killer line of attack for Romney in the next/last debate; you could see him salivating at the opening to beta-test it tonight, to crap all over the Apologist-in-Chief weakling weasel.

And then Obama not only blunted it, but turned it against Mitt, used it to expose him as crassly opportunistic, contemptibly rash in his haste to exploit national tragedy for personal gain -- oh, yeah, and flat-out wrong about basic facts.

I daresay the GOP will keep hammering away at this, but it will be a hollow effort; their standard-bearer flopped and failed, they know it no matter how they try to spin away the pain, and he's not going to do any better in the foreign policy debate, at best; at worst, he'll look even more incoherently desperate, while Obama looks every inch the in-charge, competent, resolute Commander in Chief that the country needs.  

If it were done when 'tis done, then 'twere well it were done subjunctively.


Works For Me (2.00 / 5)
Romney's money has more foreign policy experience than he does.

[ Parent ]
That was a relief (2.00 / 6)
Very satisfying.  With respect to Libya, Mitt's a goddamn moron, for two reasons: (1) in this country, you can always blunt a national security-type criticism with moral outrage (whether real or feigned) - it always worked for Bush and it will work for Obama, and (2) it's always a mistake to broadcast your strategy ahead of time.

Help Police! (2.00 / 6)
