The Debate Begins [Photo, Video - Liveblogging]

A photo from Mitt’s Body Man via Twitter.

TAKING A breather before the debate, a photo from Mitt Romney’s body man.

– MORE DRONES. It’s now agreed upon by Democrats and Republicans. Swell.

– Two candidates, both competing for master of the universe, guns blazing as the klieg lights shine the spotlight.

– Obama just smoked Romney: “Yes and we have fewer horses and bayonets than in 1916!” Wound delivered. Epic take down. “Not a game of battleship.”

– Romney starts looking down. Wants to be anywhere else. FLAILING… fumbling… Hold on… Romney losing it and Obama knows it.

– We’re now talking about Obamacare. Bob Schieffer has completely lost the thread. Bring in Rachel Maddow and Bret Baier, who should have done this in the first place.

– KABOOM. “peaceful planet… peace… PRINCIPLES OF PIECE.” (PAUSE) More “peace… peace.” You heard it here first, folks. Republican talking heads foreshadowed it…

Tweet 1 today:

Tweet 2…

– Obama mentions “women” again, Romney hasn’t. Not sure he gets Secretary Clinton’s 20-year cause to educate on women’s impact on a country’s stability.

– Team Obama wants you to see this video…

– Romney screws up the geography of Syria and Iran. Couldn’t rewrite it if I tried.

– “Replacement government,” speaking of Syria, Romney’s neocon advisers finally found the reusable term.

– Schieffer is bouncing topics like a moderator ball.

– Obama cites Secretary Clinton’s 20-year belief on women as part of U.S. foreign policy. Right on.

“Attacking me is not an agenda.” – Mitt Romney

– Obama is very aggressive, saying Romney is always wrong. Slams him as having foreign policy of the 1980s: “import the foreign policy of the 1980s … the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s.”

9:07 pm – Lauding Libya intervention. Says Romney’s strategy “all over the map.”

9:06 pm – Change from Obama, no longer saying Al Qaeda is gone, but that their “core leadership” has been decimated.

9:05 pm – First move from Mitt Romney is to Obama’s left…

“We can’t kill our way out of this mess.” – Mitt Romney

– Romney in red tie, Obama in blue. You do know what red symbolizes, yes?

    ” Obama is winning this debate by being George W. Bush. ” Hasn’t he been George W. Bush for the past four years? Romney knows nothing about foreign affairs and even less about the military and the manipulation of it’s budget by congress. Even now their trying to get the Pentagon to buy M1 tanks they don’t want and don’t need. This debate should have been a cake walk for Obama and apparently it was.

      The military will continue to be bloated and America will continue to use tactics we would have hanged the German High Command for using after World War II, and “liberals” won’t give a damn because He’s Our President. We will not have a plan to rebuild America ( how much did you hear about America’s rotting infrastructure during the three debates,) we will make no meaningful movement toward getting us off of fossil fuels, the middle class will continue to be squeezed for the sake of the upper class’s tax cuts, and the poor will continue to be forgotten.

      If the deficit is dealt with in the next four years, it will because America joins the Austerity Parade. Who will be protesting in Congress? A few black women who are marginal figures as far as the media is concerned, never mind their seniority. Who will be protesting in the streets? Not liberals, because it might be seen as Not Supporting Our Young PresidentTM and Just Helping Republicans. Yeah, it’s going to be a great next four years, regardless of which of these corporate suits wins. I’m just amazed at the passion on both sides, as people scream at eachother over which flavor of Vanilla ice cream is superior.
