First Obama vs Romney Presidential Debate - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

At 9pm Eastern, the first of many presidential debates will begin, whose ultimate goal will be to validate in the minds of those 47% or so (aka the very loud minority) who intend to vote for the next president, that they have made the right choice. They haven't (for the reason, or rather 16,171,037,343,409 reasons, see here: neither candidate can do anything at all to prevent the debt crisis iceberg that America is careening into full speed, and which nobody could have foreseen). But it sure makes for great theater, and even better drinking games. So fire up the Interwebs, prepare your Tungstenschläger IV drip, lean back in your favorite easy, bought on credit, and soon to be repossessed chair, and be distracted, unknowing that during the duration of the debate, the US raked up another $200-$300 million in public debt (depending on the frequency and duration of the commercial breaks).

Ron Paul Bitchez!

What about the stream that allows some third party candidates to respond to questions?

We're not watching the debate to hear where legitimate candidates stand on the issues. We're watching because it's one of the funniest things you will ever see.


Basically, mindless entertainment.

I thought I got the Tweet of the Night in when, to Samuel L. Jackson, I tweeted "Snakes on a Stage."

Obama:  "How do you like my electric tie?"

Romney: "Congratulations on your wife."

Obama: We need more jobs.  Hire more teachers.

Romney: We need more jobs.   Fewer regulations on small business.

Obama: We agree.

Romney: Nods.  We agree.  Taxes?

Obama: We agree.

If Romney keeps this up , Obama will vote for him :)

That was a good piece. Heard it this morning. My favorite is Clinton predicating Ross Perot's presence on the removal of one debate and countering the other two against major sports events. The whole system is a corrupt joke. A sick joke.

OMG - I heard that shit on my way home today.  Folks next to me must have been wondering why the idot next to them was screaming and cussing to himself out loud like a lunitic.  Good lord politics is so fucking corrupt.  Here's a blurb for everyone who missed it:

"George Farah, founder of Open Debates, tells Democracy Now that the "Commission of Presidential Debates sounds like a government agency. It sounds like a non-partisan entity, which is by design. It’s intended to deceive the American people. But in reality, it’s a private corporation, financed primarily by Anheuser-Busch and other major companies, that was created by the Republican and Democratic Parties to seize control of the Presidential debates from the League of Women Voters in 1987."

I keep wondering what they are going to talk about.. they seem to agree on almost everything important?

"I love goldman sachs"

"I love goldman sachs more"

"I hired 1 as my advisor"

"I hired 1 as my sec of treasury"

"I have sucked Jamie Dimon's cock"

"I have sucked Jamie's cock with Lloyd's dick in my ass"

"I have sucked Jamie's cock with Lloyd's dick in my ass, while Ben Bernake jerked off in the corner."

Reids friend will be viewing with rapt attention as will Joe Soptic and Jeremiah Wright.



Reid got caught with his pants down around his ankles...and Soptic was actually screwed by his own choices and the guy actually running Bain when Soptic is talking about it IS A MEGA OBAMA BUNDLER. for himself.

New York City will penalize floppers this season, fining buildings for repeated violations of an act city officials said has "no place in our town."

Those exaggerated falls to the ground may fool reporters and viewers during a live broadcast, but officials at city hall plan to take a look for themselves afterward.

Buildings will get a warning the first time, then be fined $5,000 for a second violation. The fines increase to $10,000 for a third offense, $15,000 for a fourth and $30,000 the fifth time. Six or more could lead to a suspension.

"Flops have no place in our game -they either fool the military into undertaking undeserved regime change or fool the public into thinking officials failed to respond to an act of aggression," the vice president said in a statement.

Accordingly, both the League of Architects and the competition committee felt strongly that "any building who the league determines, following video review, to have committed a flop should - after a warning - be given an automatic penalty."

Some buildings oppose the measure.

WTC7 complained that "it takes away an essential part of the gameplay if you're not allowed to simply collapse during a moment of excitement, whether from broken windows or burning rooms or whatever."

Officials said flopping will be defined as "any physical act that appears to have been intended to cause the MSM to call a foul on another sovereign state."

The blame for the rise in flopping is often aimed at the international architects who came to NYC after growing up watching soccer, where falling down in hopes of drawing a foul is part of the game.

In?  I'm trying to tune the so called debate out!  I'd only watch if Natan Yahoo was the moderator, that would be a funny one to watch.
