Debate Night October 3, 2012

Pre-debate coverage had Anderson leading a discussion group with Gloria Borger, David Gergen, James Carville, Van Jones, Alex Castellanos, Carly Fiorina and John King.

After debate coverage was anchored by Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper and included the same pre-debate panel.  In the field were Candy Crowley, Erin Burnett, Jessica Yellin and Jim Acosta.  Jim Berman and Tom Foreman did the fact checks. 

Anderson Cooper last night on Jimmy Fallon:

Not the President's best debate, but Romney was doing so much lying, his "win" is going to come back and bite him in the you-know-where. Fact checkers are working overtime on him now. Gergen even said Romney was flat out lying. I'm not expecting the same outcome on the upcoming debates.

I thought Anderson's appearance on Fallon was odd. Most of the interview was about Honey Boo Boo and Teresa from RHONJ and Anderson seemed way into doing his impersonation of Honey Boo Boo's family. And the joke at the end about Wolf copying his style and saying that he (Wolf) is going to be saying he's gay next was just odd. The whole thing was weird.

Anderson Cooper needs to just go ahead and leave CNN.

Romney is now acting like his nine year old running mate....lying.
And if he lies now, what kind of a President will he make?
Well we all know that answer but it is too bad that so many identify with the top 1%.
Why do supposedly smart people keep voting against their own interests?
For the same reason, supposedly smart people keep watching Anderson Live. Duh.

President Obama needs to be more assertive.
I know that this first debate was not a game changer and the next two will show Romney's real character to be that of a Palin, who knows nothing about foreign policy, but part of the POTUS's problem for the last four years is his total lack of assertiveness.
He needs to show his leadership skills more effectively.
Surely he's learned more than his opponent about policy making in the first it!
And start calling Romney out on his fact checking. Use the 47% footage to your advantage, you have the tape, and Romney can't deny he was there.
Make him squirm.
The good thing is we know that Romney loses his cool, make him lose it on camera!
Now is not the time be the gentleman. Not if you really want to win.
And MSNBC did a bang up job last nite even though Chris Matthews was playing 'hard ball.'
