Knowing that my state of Florida will probably be won by Mittens makes my skin crawl like a sick Spawn sculpture:

OK, nice to have Romney actually list some good points of Stuff To Do in the Middle East — economic development and gender equality.

HAHAHAHHA “The ’80s called and want their foreign policy back!” *is ded*

I know this subject is very important, but any undecided voters at this stage of the game aren’t even sure what the candidates names are, let alone where Libya is located on the map.

This debate is for media folks and high information voters, who have all already made up his or her mind.

Romney plan sounds like “Do everything but do everything twice as hard. And better. With blackjack and hookers!”

Ugh, this is like the worst section of the debates, since Obama has terrible foreign policy, but probably still better than Romney’s.

Possibly this all sounds good to Americans.

Obama is biting at the bit to get at Romney. I suspect that he has gone through some sort of Rocky 4 training montage; chopping logs, climbing mountains, and screaming Romney’s name into the sky.

Besides horsemen and bayonets, we need more long bowmen. If anything, the Battle of Cressy and Hunger Games shows the value of a bow and arrow.

I wish Romney would shut up about bi-partisinship. He had to deal with a state senate full of democrats, and they overrode his veto 707 times! http://www.masslive.com/politics/index.ssf/2012/07/how_often_were_mitt_romneys_ma.html

…Oh, snap! “We have less horses and bayonets.”

Best line of the debate:

“You mention how our navy has less ships then we did in 1917. We also have less horses and bayonets than we did in 1917.”
-Obama

Still laughing. I wish politics were this funny more often.

You know, on purpose.

I keep waiting for Romney to talk about a trebuchet gap and how we need more siege weapons.

I think you’ve managed your top line for the night here, MGK.

oh, screw you Mitt. I was a governor, and the federal government doesn’t hire teachers? No, but they give you the funding to hire teachers (also: States don’t hire teachers either. usually local governmental units actually hire teachers, although they get state employee benefits).

Probably, Fred, but it’s still not a patch on Paul Riddell’s line about grinning “like Anton La Vey receiving an invitation to the Pope’s wedding.”

A tie? Obama demolished Romney. As Bill Maher said on Twitter, Romney’s entire strategy for this debate was “What he said, but with a white guy.” Romney just did not want to be there.

Schieffer did a lousy job of moderating. Let the conversation run all over the map and didn’t keep the candidates under time at all.

Also, for a debate on foreign policy this was rather weighted toward Islam and the Arab world. Some discussion of other regions would have been nice (they talked about China for ten minutes toward the end, but still).

Also also, I love how the entire thing basically boiled down to: “I agree with the other guy, except he will do it wrong.” American politics is so entertaining.

John 2.0: Did you say you were a governor?

@Monkey: That was supposed to be in quotes. So it should read: Screw you Mitt [for saying] “I was a Governor, and the federal government doesn’t hire teachers” because Governors have as much to do with hiring teachers as the President does, usually they just provide funding to the next level down.

Sorry for the confusion. Too many debate beers on my part (for the record, the Magic Hat IPAs were not as good as the Sam Adams IPAs I had during the first debate).

It looked to me like Obama’s expression sometimes said, “I’m missing Lions at Bears for THIS?!?”
