    Obama got 4 extra minutes of speaking time. He was Politely interrupted once as opposed to Romney's several.

    Obama went over some at the end and at that five second comment. I saw Romney doing a lot more talking over. Go back over the debate and count how many times Jim asked Romney to stop talking and he just kept right on talking. I'm not mad at him like some are. It's the nature of politics and debate, but it's the truth.

    I am glad that Romney was aggressive. It showed that he wanted it (McCain was a wimp). It was nice seeing obama get slapped. He needed it. Hopefully Romney does the same at the next debate. I do look for obama to have a different demeanor, though. They are probably drilling in to his head now about how he has to be aggressive and rude. Look for him to return to his Chicago thug tactics and have a lot of personal attacks against Romney.

    I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

    CNN kept track of the time lapses for each word spoken, Obama spoke 4 minutes more.

    People tend to see what they want to. Romney spoke for 47% of the time and Obama spoke for 53% of the time. This indicates that Obama exceed his allotted time by 3%.

    Oh I see. That's the confusion, see DU thinks those percentages are flipped! Because Obama speaks for DU, and DU is the "47%"...

    Hey Moo, didn't you once say that you didn't need teachers growing up because you learned a lot of stuff from shows like Sesame St? lol.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    As for Romney and the percentage issue, here's another fact. More than once, Jim was trying to tell him his time was up and he wouldn't listen. There was a lot of "Uh, uh, uh" in there. That's a fact.

    President Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney cut off Lehrer 30 times during the 90-minute debate — three times as often as Obama and his then-rival Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) did in their first debate in 2008.

    Of the two, Romney did it the most often, the center’s research director Dan Amundson said in an interview.

    Romney interrupted Lehrer 13 times; Obama did it seven. And in 10 instances, Amundson said, everyone seemed to be talking at once.

    The center also found that Lehrer was actually a bit tougher on the candidates than he was in 2008.



    Darn those facts. lol.

    And more than once Jim Lerher did his best to dig Obama out of the verbal holes he dug for himself.

    God you're so predictable. Oh look there's Lanie/Bridget posting again at CU...must have gotten a fresh set of talking points from teh DUmp.
