Obama-Romney II - The 'Tumble In The Town Hall' Debate - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture


This is the real thing. Forget the Thrilla-in-Manilla or the Rumble-in-the-Jungle, tonight's no-holds-barred, no-truth-spoken 'Tumble-in-the-Town-Hall' debate promises much (but will likely deliver little). Fighting out of the blue corner is a toned middleweight - the comeback-kid Barack 'the basher' Obama. His opponent, fresh from victory in their previous epic battle, fighting from the red corner, the deceivingly slippery Mitt 'the mauler' Romney. Intrade has the 'basher' at 60.5% odds of winning it all on November 6th - at its lows of the day after suffering some heavy action in the early afternoon - while RealClearPolitics has the pair evenly matched.

Bought 2 liters of Wild Turkey for this one.

I'm not watching though, just drinking shots randomly.

I bought some Irish Whisky, for marinade, to smoke some fish tomorrow, however, I believe I am going to have to make a run tomorrow after the aspirin and 4 Bloody Marry to get some more for the fish.

Are you snorting the aspirin?

If not, it = BLS.

I will have to see if I can walk tomorrow.  If not, then yes, I will be snorting what ever is within reach.

Romney says no capital gains tax. Does that go for selling gold and silver?

Romney just said (twice in a row); "Trickle down economics doesn't work"...

Last Tuesday Ryan said that under Reagan it did work...

Why can't Romney explain how his proposed tax cuts will balance the budget..??

Why don't they just say "I'll cut your taxes if you vote for me"...???

Your statment is incorrect...he said trickle down government does not work.  Unless Romney has an epic fail between now and voting day, he's our next president...

You will need the booze to change the visuals on the 21 stone moderatatrix. I wish that she could have done this in a slinky silk body hugging dress. We occasionally need feminine beauty to lighten our load of male politician blather.


 The WSJ feed had Sheila Bair on mentioning that neither one addressed the root cause of the ailing economy. She is right and has gone up a lot in my view since we found out what she was really trying to do as head of FDIC. Both parties vilified her as they had to deal with someone that actually took her job seriously, so the smear was on. Once her book promo tour winds down I very much hope that she lets we peons see her notes on the meetings that she attended as head of the FDIC.

 If I was running a news operation I would have her on speed dial for the best that one can exxpect from a godamned gombit regulator.

Vote for Obama, so the masses will blame Leftists for the collapse.

I understand that.  Most people do not - the masses think there's a difference between Republicans and Democrats.

They associate Libertarianism with Republicans because of Ron Paul.

This ship is going down.  It has already hit the iceberg.  If Obama is in office, then the Left will be blamed by most of the sheep.

You understand Libertarians, in their true form, are Anarchists.

That US Libertarians are actually small government Republicans.

Ayn Rand hated Libertarians calling them " Hippies of the Right".

turbosuperman's picture

I'm not talking about what I understand.  I'm talking about what the sheep understand.  They see Ron Paul seeking the Republican nomination, so they associate Libertarians with Republicans.

Maybe at one time the Republican party had some Libertarian or small government principles still in it, but those days are long gone.

There are many things two Libertarians could disagree about and still be Libertarians.

Tue, 10/16/2012 - 21:41 | 2896785 Gully Foyle

Yeah, your understanding is faulty.

First, Paul is a Republican. Gary Johnson is the Libertarian candidate.

Second, most of the GENPOP have no clue Libertarians exsit. It's all tea Party to them.

Tue, 10/16/2012 - 21:49 | 2896817 turbosuperman
turbosuperman's picture

I'm aware of who the Libertarian candidate is.  I actually prefer Johnson to Paul.

Again, this isn't about what I understand.  It's about what most people understand.

People know that Ron Paul calls himself a Libertarian and many have heard him directly or indirectly (Krugman's readers, for example) talk about Austrian economics.  They see him seeking the Republican nomination.  So, they must think today's Republicans at least have something in common with Libertarians.

Before you assume the libertarian philosphy isn't well known consider this:   Atlas Shrugged is the second best selling book of all time (bible is the first).  It still sells over 100,000 copies/year.

The individual is the engine that moves the world-and profit and self-interest is its only fuel.  This truth will never die as it is also the driving force for all evolution.  Collectivism is for the weak and the incompetent (think psychology or art majors) who rely on state sponsored parasitism for their survival.

Johnson has 0 financial accumen and on that note, he does NOT understand how to be fiscally responsible.

How is that a lie? In comparison to Ron Paul, who has ZERO campaign debt.. Johnson is ~2mil in the hole and begging for money. You call that wise use of funds? I certainly don't. You call that financial skill? you have a strange concept of financial accumen if you think being in debt is is a sign of financia prowess..

Libertarians don't have the balls to be anarchists.  They need to be able to call on the powers of the State they pretend to hate when someone rips 'em off.
