You're not debating a bound and gagged Republican who's tied to a chair. Obama had to debate a REAL LIVE Republican, who can actually answer charges and make his own attacks.

No, but Romney got to debate a bound and gagged Obama. Obama leveled no charges of any substance and responded to attacks with a "meh."

He doesn't want to raise taxes, BUT, what he'll do is close loopholes.

He'll close the loopholes that primarily benefit the middle class. The gaping hole in our tax code that allows trillions of dollars to disappear into personal stockpiles of unused cash & assets (where they continue to generate more cash & assets similarly sheltered from taxation) will remain wide open.

What about oil subsidies, Mitt? What about cap gains tax rate? How about farm subsidies? What about bonuses and compensation via stock options? Instead he's going to close the deficit by eliminating the mortgage interest deduction, repealing consumer protections, and turning over our public lands to the resource extractors. And the dummies are calling this a plan.

Mitt said he wasn't going to cut schools. Again.

When Mitt says he's not going to cut funding for schools that means he's going to gut the public school system and put that money up for vouchers. This is conservative fiscal doctrine for time immemoriam. There is all the evidence in the world to suggest that a Romney administration would be the last, greatest wealth transfer from the middle class into the new American ruling class, with all the "Water the Tree of Liberty" goofballs leading the team cheer.

Team Obama's second move? Time to start actually running for President of the United States instead of auditioning for a slot on MSNBC.

If last night is the "new Obama", then he would be lucky to get a gig as a recurring guest on Granholme's show on Current.

It was a massively disappointing performance for anyone who is sick to their stomach of opportunistic cowboy conservatives (W and Saint Ronnie come to mind), blubbering, squishy toadies (Boehner, Hatch, McConnell et al), and dogmatic reactionaries (the Jim DeMints, Sarah Palins, and the other BSCs) that are actually running the 21st Century Republican Freak Show.

Obama's silence meant the absence of a voice for the people. Cause it sure as hell isn't Mitt.
