    I can't watch this anymore. Very disappointed in Lehrer and Obama



    Not good.
    Does catbyte think that Lehrer is suppose to give it to Obama by default. I thought he did a decent job of moderating.

    If you have an account, screenshots some threads for us ;) I'm sure they will be taken down before it reopens to the public.

    What was the moderator supposed to do? Bail the magic negro out when someone started kicking his ass?

    He was supposed to keep the discussion on track and within time limits, and failed to do so. I frankly think just having the two candidates sit at a table and talk for the entire evening would be GREAT.

    With how these two dislike each other? There would fisticuffs by the end. Which would be great if you think about it, my money is on Romney

    They should be nervous. Obama has legs. This is toast.

    Lehrer did good last night. I was expecting him to be unfair, and he was very fair. I hope the other mods are the same way. Then after last night, they may change their strategy. If you watched, you will notice that obama was egging lehrer to bail him out a couple of time.

    I do think Romney was more aggressive and less respectful in regards to time limits. That said, perhaps Obama needed to get just as aggressive. It's about leadership.

    Moderator Jim Lehrer of PBS, at times, tried without success to keep the candidates within time limits for responses, especially Obama, who ended up speaking four minutes longer than Romney.
