Roanoke Times, 10-4-2012, Pg 1, 16: Candidates clash on economy
This is the best the Editorial team can do? How pathetic! This team of folks who have constantly told us how great Obama is, how marginal Romney is and that in effect the election will be a nonevent because the polls have it locked up for Obama.
Candidates clash on economy – Really? How about Romney kicked Obama’s butt all over the stage!
Apparently Obama forgot his teleprompter and his PBS-moderator-buddy was as pathetic as he was. Even double-teaming Romney wasn’t successful.
And RTs Danny-Boy’s headline is: ‘grinding’ at school dances causing concerns’.
This is Danny’s big expose the morning after what was supposed to be “Apocalypse Now” for Romney? Apparently Danny didn’t see ‘Dirty Dancing’ 25 years ago and thinks ‘grinding’ is something new. Perhaps Danny should have jumped on Al Gore’s excuse wagon:
It’s the altitude – Stupid!
Apparently Gore thinks Obama can’t think straight in the rarefied air of Denver’s mile-high atmosphere. Is that racist or what? I’m sure glad I didn’t say that! However it fits in real well with Gore’s other “inconvenient untruths” and ridiculous prophecies. Is he certifiable or what?

What did Business Insider have to say about the debate:

How about liberal PBS-Commentator Jeff Greenfield:
After the debate debacle for Obama, we’ll find out if we have a race
(Does this mean Jeff thinks Obama will drop-out like LBJ did?)
How about CNN (a key extension of the DNC and Obama’s Reelection Committee):
By most accounts, Republican challenger Mitt Romney was the clear winner of Wednesday's first debate with President Barack Obama.
Romney engaged the incumbent while Obama looked down at his lectern. The challenger was a more forceful debater while Obama appeared less than engaged.
(Perhaps he looked down because he though he was back at Harvard and was looking for his crib sheets?)
And best of all Charlie HURT Washington Times:
