Anybody watching 60 minutes?
 
Whole hour of Romney and Obama.

This is the best Romney has looked in this entire campaign.

Worked out good saw Romney and now can switch over to NBC without seeing the scumbag Obama.

That's precisely what I was coming here to say.

They're lobbing softballs at Obama.

Please call me a blind sheep now. At least I listen to what the other side is saying.

That being said he sounded good. I thought he was incredibly vague and when he did talk specifics it became clear the rich (and in particular his wallet) are what's going to drive his tax policy.

Furthermore, for all the crying about uneven media exposure, I find it odd that they air this with Romney being able to address the current hot topics, while Obama's interview was on Sept. 12th.

New 12-step-program: drink whenever Romney gives a straight answer.

I didn't see that.

I have to admit, it was one of the tougher interviews on Obama. Toward the end of the first segment, he started to really press a bit on some tougher questions.

But the questions were softballs. Almost every statement Romney made was challenged. The questioning on Romney was very, very good. Why not the same treatment for Obama? The focus of the in-fighting with Congress was based on "why haven't you struck a deal on cutting taxes for the rich?" Why was there no questioning of why he hasn't passed a budget, even with a democratic congress? Why no mention of Bob Woodward's book? I thought the economic questions were complete softballs. Rather than really dig into Obama, he basically framed the questions as "Romney said you believe this..." And why not really poke into the details of the bailout? Or challenge any point Obama made?

I actually don't think it was so much softball questions as much as it was a really unskilled interview. The questions were canned.

I missed it.

I'll tell you what brought me to that conclusion. He states that the tax rates would come down but some exemptions would be gone(rather vaguely I might add), then he defended the capital gains rates.

So out of Romney tonight we got taxes coming down, some mysterious undisclosed write offs would go away, capital gains are staying the same and "maybe the middle class will see a little break."

Obama is nothing but a liar....and is completely relying on the American people to once again believe the bullshit rhetoric that spews from his ass and not look at the real facts.

Did they ask him about NDAA?

How am I supposed to get drunk then? I'll go with drink every time Romney/Obama don't give a straight answer. I'll be ****ed up in no time.
