The agreed upon rules are that "No props, notes, charts, diagrams, or
other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate
by any candidate."

Of course, Romney is the Great Exception to all social agreements and, as
such, no such rules apply to him and cheating and lying are a-ok.

Catch up. Even the wacko lefty sites that accused him of this the day after the debate admit that it is a handkerchief.

On a scale of 1-10, eviscerating a candidate for writing notes on his hanky, when there was no problem carrying notes to the podium, has to rate somewhere in the high 90s

I don't think that they were supposed to bring notes at all. But only if you don't watch the actual debate can you imagine that Romney depended even .000000000001% on any hand written notes.

I think it was a folded handkerchief.

He didn't win on notes. He won on boldly stated lies and a weak moderator.

Your right, I got crossed up with the they can take notes.

No I can't imagine given the command of the wide range of facts ROmney displayed that he used notes.

On the other hand, I can not see why we would not want candidates to have notes. What purpose does it serve to test their memory as opposed to test their actual points, and if it takes some notes to verify a point -- why is that a problem?

Looks like that to me too BUT if Dipwad could write her notes on her hand it's not a stretch for him to have some cheaters on a hanky

No... just boldly stated lies.

Lehrer was simply following the rules that both candidates had agreed upon.

I think there is a problem with allowing candidates to make the debate rules- but that's a different story.

Can't we just agree that it was the altitude?

I agree. This should be done by standard debating rules. Nothing to agree to, no special cases. Very rigid, no-nonsense standard debating.

I doubt there were notes on the hanky...I don't think he even tries to remember his lies. He just makes up new ones on the fly. Shake that etch-a-sketch and say something new. He's counting on the public being too dumb to notice, and what's scary is he may be right about that.

I think that there was one " If the President starts doing so badly that he starts to drool, offer him this" Luckily for Obama it ended before that happened.

It doesn't matter what was on the handkerchief.
The rules stated they could bring nothing.
I will concede that it's ok to have a handkerchief in your pocket - but not immediately removed and laid before you on the podium.
If he needed to wipe his brow or blow his nose during the debate, he could have removed the handkerchief at that time, used it, and returned it to his pocket.

Rules are there for a reason. To protect oneself, it is in one's best interest to follow them.

Wait, which pocket is OK to have a handkerchief in? Just the jacket? How about the pants? Is a tissue OK? What about a handi-wipe? Next thing you know that cheating bastard is going to have a scientific calculator to demonstrate how many jobs haven't been created in the last four years. When will the madness end?
