Second 2012 Presidential Debate at Hofstra University – Open Thread

Second 2012 Presidential Debate – Hofstra University
Pressure is on the empty suit-empty chair Barack Obama–

Here we go… Debate #2.
Moderator Candy Crowley looked over the questions submitted by members of the audience and will select which ones will be asked.
Mitt Romney will get the first question.

Candidates are introduced, Obama jumps for the empty chair.
First question on how student can find a job. Mitt answers by talking about Pell grants. Blames last four years being very hard on kids. Half of kids just graduated without a job. “I know what it takes to create good jobs again.”

Obama opens with a lie about creating 5 million jobs in America. (Truth is 5 million left work force under Obama.)

Mitt: We have 10.8% real unemployment. I have a 5 point plan.

Obama: Mitt Romney lies. He doesn’t have a 5 point plan. He has a one point plan. For rich.

Crowley won’t let Mitt answer.

Question: OUCH! Audience member asks Obama why his Secretary of Energy doesn’t think lower gas prices is a priority.
Obama talks about opening new areas for drilling. He didn’t.
(According to a recent report from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), energy production decreased 13 percent on federal lands in fiscal year (FY) 2011 when compared to FY 2010.)

Is Barack Obama really bragging about clean energy on the day another Green Company goes bankrupt?

Obamanomics… For the record: When the economy roars gas prices do not necessarily go up.

WOW – This is getting heated! Obama decided to show up and lie about his record.

The odds are stacked against Obama – his socialist Keynesian policies were a disaster and Mitt is making him wear it around his neck.

Barack Obama is once again trying to paint Mitt’s tax plan as something it is not.

Big Bird! Drink!

Is Obama really preaching to Mitt about the deficit?… After four years of trillion dollars deficits?

OMG! Mitt just completely SLAMMED Obama on four years of trillion dollar deficits.

Obama brings up “Toot” his grandmother who he threw under the bus.

MITT: In last four years 785,000 women have lost jobs! Ouch!

REALLY? Candy @CrowleyCNN selected question comparing Mitt to George Bush? That’s Just Awful!

Obama (whose auto bailout money went to China, Germany, Russia, Mexico & UK) attacks Romney on outsourcing.

Osama Bin Laden is dead. Drink.

Mitt Romney is just killing it. He just broke down Obama on ALL of his unkept promises.

I think Candy Crowley just told Mitt to go sit down after she interrupted him.

GREAT QUESTION TO OBAMA: Who Denied Security in Benghazi and Why?

Obama: “We are going to find out who did this and get ’em.” That’s why FBI waited 17 days for visas before entering Libya.

Obama: “I’m the one who has to greet those coffins when they come home!” (And send out the form letters to the families)

OMG- Crowley just defended Obama on Benghazi.
FACT: NO Candy Crowley Obama did not call Benghazi a terror attack in the Rose Garden.

Figures. Candy Crowley won’t allow @MittRomney to discuss Fast and Furious – Cuts in Again.

Obama: Government creates jobs.
Mitt: We don’t have to settle for Obama’s disastrous record.

Obama: I don’t believe government creates jobs. Huh?

Only one question on foreign policy.
Final Analysis: That was just awful Candy Crowley embarrassed herself and her profession.

  • TeachX3

  • Miss Peach

    “Moderator Candy Crowley looked over the questions submitted by members of the audience and will select which ones will be asked”

    Here let me fix that for you

    Moderator Candy Crowley looked over the questions submitted by members of the audience and will select which ones will be asked and let the Obama team know ahead of time”

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Frankly, I can’t watch this! Obama is going to take a lesson straight out of Biden’s debate and I suspect you’re going to see him rolling his eyes, making mocking looks, and cutting Mitt off, with the help and blessing of Candy Crowley of course.

    Look, the Dems are ALL IN on this debate. Nothing is out of bounds. 100 bucks says that the DNC has rigged all the questions in advance and Obama knows what he’s going to say before the question is even asked.

  • valerie

    Here we go. Obama is making promises directly at odds with the policies of the last 4 years.

  • Joe College

    Puts slots in community college. I’ll go.

  • donh

    Question is about jobs and Obama giving a rant about energy pipe dreams.

  • Spider

    duh, I was still on pre-debate thread.

    I’ll repeat my advice for Mitt:

    JOBS, JOBS, jobs, jobs, JOBS!!!!

  • TeachX3

    I really don’t like this type of forum

  • donh

    Mitt remember Jeremy’s name…He’s already connecting better to the audience while Obama nervously rattles off stale detached talking points.

  • valerie

    Ok, now we have Obama calling Romney a liar.

  • TeachX3

    OK, so obama can go on and on and LIE, but Romney cannot respond?? UGH!

  • bg


    Obama has been outsourcing the auto industry..


  • Spider

    Obama has one attack – “Mitt wants to lower taxes for the rich”

    It’s bogus. Mitt wants to lower taxes for the JOB creators.

    Every policy Obama has hurts the economy, and causes JOBS to be lost.


  • Joe College

    And that’s why gas is so cheap.
