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.

    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.

    Puts slots in community college. I’ll go.

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

    duh, I was still on pre-debate thread.

    I’ll repeat my advice for Mitt:

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

    Obama whiffed completely on the gas prices question.

    China is building coal plants Mr. President, yet you claim they are investing in clean energy and we aren’t. What a clown.

    O is being a real jerk. Biden must have coached him.

    Mitt, keep your cool, this is gonna be 2 against 1.

    Just stay firm and on message.

    O’s energy policies have killed energy production, where’s the fact checkers?!

    Mitt talk about unleashing energy production! It creates JOBS.

    Obama claiming he wants to drill more was hilarious.

    Obama had 4 years, nothing happened.

    Now he’s coming up with some kind of pro-energy stance that no one has ever heard of before.

    O is filibustering, he is a senator you know.

  • Nobama42

    Hmm, did Obama ever say whether he agreed with his Sec of Energy?

    Mitt brings up Keystone XL pipeline, nice.

    Mitt going after Obama, nice, Obama won’t answer. Obama had to admit they took the leases away.

    When Obama comes off the way he is, he’s going to come off being too defensive, and that will turn the Independents off. Keep it up Barry, lol.

    Obama is getting killed again. He is lying his teeth out, sounding very defensive and he just sounds like an idiot talking about energy.

  • donh

    So Obama’s game is to call Romney a LIAR while he lies about opening up access to resources…….

    Didn’t Perot bring graphs to the debates? Or were those his infomercials?

    Show a graph of the price of gas it is brutal.

    Mitt will lower tax rates.

    Obama will raise tax rates. And this will not increase tax revenues as producers will go away.

    At 61Yes he does.

    Obama is repeating the same ole stuff over and over again. What tax credits have Obama done? Does he mean the one where he cut social security taxes?

    Over taxation, over regulation, and over grown government is smothering us.

    Mitt keep selling your 5 point plan!

  • Leatherhelmet

    I missed the first debate, Mitt is damn good.

  • Hopeful

    Romney is doing well in an absolute sense. He is authoritative, but his voice is soft. And it’s low. (I loooove soft low male voices. Hope lots of women do!)

    Ogabe’s voice is higher, and it’s harsh. He’s letting that old community organizer guy out.

    I see lots of middle-aged men in the audience. Can’t believe they are stupid enough to be fooled by the Community Organizer in Chief.

    Crowley asking obama again about a point that Romney made. I wonder if Romney will get a chance to respond.

    Obama’s OTHER big downfall in this debate is that he’s not LISTENING to Romney’s answers. For example, 3 minutes after Romney explained his proposed changes to federal tax deductions, Obama ridiculously claimed that NO ONE KNOWS Romney’s proposal for tax deduction changes. At that moment, EVERY debate watcher in the country who was paying attention had the same first thought, namely: “Yo, stupid, he JUST TOLD YOU his proposal for tax deductions.”

    And their second thought was: “If I’M paying closer attention to this debate than YOU are, Mr. Obummer, then you don’t deserve to be president.”

    readying for Obama’s lies re: Romney on illegal immigration

    [Romney vetoed a bill in 2004 that would have allowed illegal immigrants to obtain in-state tuition rates at state colleges if they graduated from a Massachusetts high school after attending it for at least three years and signed an affidavit affirming that they intended to seek citizenship. Romney argued that the bill would cost the state government $15 million and that Massachusetts should not reward illegal immigration. A study by the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation predicted that the legislation would generate over $5 million in state revenues; the Massachusetts Coalition for Immigration Reform disputed this conclusion. In 2005, the bill was reintroduced to the House and brought to a vote on 11 January 2006. The legislation was defeated 96-57.

    On December 2, 2006, it was reported that a landscaping company Romney contracted to perform yard work at his home had been suspected of employing illegal immigrants. Romney said that he was unaware of the immigration status of the company’s employees.[129] A year later it was revealed that the same company was still using illegal immigrants to work on Romney’s estate. After this second backlash, Romney fired the landscape company.

    Later in December 2006, Romney signed an agreement with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency that would have allowed Massachusetts State Police troopers to arrest and seek deportation of suspected illegal immigrants they encounter over the course of their normal duties. Under the terms of the agreement, a group of 30 troopers would have received specialized training allowing them to question and detain suspected illegal immigrants, charge them with a violation of immigration law and place them in removal proceedings.

    The executive order pertaining to state police was consistent with Section 287(g) of federal immigration law. Section 287(g) is a program of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 that deputizes state and local law enforcement personnel to enforce immigration matters.

    The agreement was never implemented because governor-elect Deval
    Patrick, who had expressed strong opposition to the agreement before
    it was signed, revoked it a month later when he was sworn in.]

    Thank you former President George W.
    Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush

    [As we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this
    week, with no media attention, when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood
    and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.

    FOR HOURS.

    The Bushes went and met privately with these families for
    HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.

    If there are any of you out there with any connection at all to the
    Bushes, we implore you to give them our thanks…you tell them that
    a bunch of gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago were wrong about
    the Bushes…and are deeply, deeply sorry for any jokes we told about
    them in the past, any bad thoughts we had about these good, good people.

    You may be as surprised by this as we are ourselves, but from this day forward George W. and Laura Bush are now on the same list for us as the Clintons, the Palins, and other political figures we keep in our hearts and never allow anyone to badmouth.

    Criticize their policies academically and intelligently and discuss the
    Bush presidency in historical and political terms…but you mess with
    the Bushes personally and, from this day forward, you’ll answer to
    us.

    We hope someday to be able to thank George W. and Laura in person
    for all they’ve done, and continue to do. They didn’t have to head to
    Ft. Hood. That was not their responsibility.

    The Obamas should have done that.

    But didn’t.

    Wouldn’t.

    Thank goodness George W. is still on his
    watch, with wonderful Laura at his side.]

In addition to moving this headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China, train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers. Remember this is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year but paid no taxes.

    President Obama appointed GE chairman Jeffrey Immelt to head his commission on job creation in the United States. But it appears that President Obama forgot to tell him in which country he was supposed to be creating jobs for.

    I am sick over this. I just went and reread the Rose Garden speech. The word ‘terror’ occurs twice and neither time is he calling Benghazi a terrorist attack.

    Obama did say “Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.”

    “We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.”

    But what in the heck was with the questioners? Did the sixties generation blow up all over that place or what?

    Had bet with friend Romney would bring up F&F if guns came up. I won.

    Great point.

    I knew it would be a disgrace. I didn’t watch. It’s time to end the debates with the vintage media outlets. They’ve had their day, and it’s over. No more of them getting to manipulate elections. They don’t take their jobs seriously. They need to be shoved aside, and it’s time to get some reputable organizations like the Heritage Foundations, Hillsdale College, AFP, and others to moderate debates. No more of this nonsense. They’re hurting the country.

    Romney pointed out obvious that Obama has had FOUR years of reality and failed. Then he kept coming back to

    Jobs, jobs, jobs, jobs.

    You want to get a college degree? You need to have a job waiting when you get out.

    You want to be here as a immigrant? You need a job.

    Your a woman? What you get paid doesn’t mean anything if you can’t find a JOB!

    Obama can’t say anything about that. He’s failed and knew it.

    Candy Crowley didn’t embarrass herself. She did her job. She was chosen to do exactly what she did. That was railroad Romney. The joke is on the freaks over at MSLSD thinking 0bama won this.

  • just-saying

    Although I had little expectation of anything fair from Crowley, I was disgusted when Romney brought up Fast and Furious during the assault weapons question and Crowley told him it was off-topic. Yet, for the very same question, Obummer started talking about hiring teachers and Crowley let him keep talking.

    Wasn’t at all impressed with Crowley’s impartiality. She was clearly partisan for Obummer. (She also interrupted Romney several times and told him “we can always get back to that” — and then, when he tried to answer the question at hand succinctly, and then get back to answer the question she said “I promise we’ll get time to answer that” — Crowley cut him off!! Outrageously unfair!)
    .

  • Flintstone F.

    Well that was a disaster of a format. Obama had nothing but the tactic of deflecting the questions to criticize Romney. He threw in the “kitchen sink” with every answer.

    Crowley was just as pathetic as I expected. Especially the last question which Romney wisely dodged and Obama completely ignored. What a useless question: “Prove to me you’re not a tool.”

    Obama is a hothead who started to lose his temper when faced with the objective truth.

    They should also have the candidates ask EACH OTHER the questions. Answer is 2 min. Rebuttal is 2 min. PERIOD. That would make it much much better than this crap that we have seen.

    3 debates and 3 moderators which should clearly be fired from “reporting ” jobs as they already have jobs as Obama cheerleaders.

    call Benghazi a terror act in Rose Garden.

    i’m confused, didn’t Mitt say he (Obama) did,
    and that’s why he (Romney) mentioned it??

    Obama: “no acts of terrorism”, 1:50 mark..

    that means Romney was right, and that Obama not only knew
    it was an “act of terrorism” from the get go, but was the first to

    Bottom line O did nothing to stem his slide in the polls. He appeared angry this time instead of just sluggish. He didn’t have a grasp of the facts and made stuff up – like the drilling leases on goverment land. America doesn’t want an angry uninformed president. It played well with his base, but that is just 20% of the voting public.

    Mitt had facts and figures at his finger tips. And this is in a debate with no notes; so when he is at work in the Oval office with all the data at hand he will be a juggernaut. He remained calm and strong even with Obama whirlybirding around him, and Candy interrupting and trying to kill the rallies.

    Mitt is on his way to a big win on 11/6.

    Mitt did a great job against the both of them, with the deck very unfairly stacked, but what do you expect from these lib moderators. Barry looked deranged, as usual, all the eye blinking, smirking, interrupting, jumping out of his chair, trying to look tough. The true undecided ppl, if there are any at this point, should see obummer is crap, and MITT will be President!

    I think Obama was trying to re-write history by saying he called it terrorism right away in the Rose garden on 9/12.

    He called it an act of terror – this is not calling it ‘terrorism’.

    He refused to call it terrorism on Univision, the View, or the UN in the following days.

    Clear thinking Americans can see the deception here.

    #383 — spider, and I think Hannity was just saying that BO said, no “act of terror” blah, blah, and was referring to 911 in 2001, NOT the 2012 Libya hit in his Garden remarks.

    1. Does anyone remember that “Who do you want in the White House at 3 am ad?” Looks like Hillary was right, wasn’t she?

    2. Did anyone get the feeling that the two were going to come to blows? That part about oil leases on federal lands was AWFULLY tense.

    3. The thing that resonated to me the most was when Romney said “We don’t have to live like this”. Political speeches don’t move me but that line did. Did anyone else feel the same way?

    Mitt needed a memorable line tonight and he didn’t deliver. He was more personable. But people are simple. They just need something that will stick in their head. Something better than “We don’t have to settle.”

    in context”

    “then last night we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi” at 3:47;
    “no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation” at 4:18..
    due to what he stated in between, and albeit not directly, sure sounds
    to me like he was referring to Benghazi.. or, at the very least, including
    it, either way, ergo:

    Obama can NEVER say he didn’t know that the consulate was attacked
    by terrorists on September 11, 2012, not that we didn’t already know
    that he already knew on September 4, 2012, and have proof of it, but
    it’s a beautiful thing when the truly guilty admit they LIED, even if, and
    especially when, they don’t realize it..

    i still think it’s the most delicious bit of irony Obama has served
    US, and he’s going to get bit hard in the butt for this cover up..

  • I don’t care what the lefty media is reporting… It WAS NOT a win for BO last night. He lied, he told us nothing new, and he delivered nothing of substance. The MSM needs BO to win, so they’re convincing themselves that he did. Period. AND this morning, I am still highly offended that Crowley stepped into “carry the water” for BO on the Libya portion of the debate. This election is too important and she should be called out big time!
