    And? You expected something else?
    I was particularly pleased that I didn't have to watch plastic faced Pelosis this time, although puppet head Biden was getting old....
    how can you even compare a presidents "last stand" with the debate?
    I think people were more interested in what can be done right now.....
    oh, I also liked the shot of Immelt sitting with the first lady.
    The head of the economic committee, who just happens to be the head of GE, who just happens to have sent 20% of their business to China. I'm sure that shot will make it's rounds in the next few months..
    5 billion sitting off shore, no taxes... ya, good choice " O "
    That ones gonna leave a bruise.

    Yes. I expected a much bigger debate audience and a much smaller Obama audience.

    31 million disappointed.

    "Pass this (non-existent) bill NOW!"

    "It's 100% paid for (or will be later, maybe. I'll jot some ideas down next week and punt this to the super committee)."

    What a tool.

    According to NPR, the speech was well received.

    I want to try reaching for straws too:

    69 million people voted for Obama in 2008. He must have lost half his base over the course of his presidency!

    Well, more than half since I'm sure a few Republicans watched.

    Wow, NPR... great source.

    Does NPR think that unemployment checks are a great stimulus as well?

    And does Obama know what a bill is?

    Most people won't turn on BSNBC for any reason. But the debate had more viewers than anything else BSNBC ever has on.

    GOP Debate Massively Boosts BSNBC; Cable News Ratings for Wednesday, September 7, 2011

    You can see from the previous Wednesday's ratings that BSNBC regularly gets wiped out in the ratings (I chose the previous Wednesday but you can pick any day).

    NPR actually is a great source. Not as good as BBC, but very good by American corporate media standards.

    Ah, so if it was on another network, more people would have watched the debate.

    Well, according to the LA Times, the MSNBC debate has had the best ratings of the Republican debates so far.

    Let's see how last night's ratings come out.

    Well, MSNBC beat out CNN.

    But Fox did come in a close second behind MSNBC

    By the way, according to the article, MSNBC's internet ratings exceed by far Fox's ratings. Younger crowd maybe? That's a good sign.

    NPR is a bunch of far left loons who are unable to compete in an open market.

    There's always a chance that a few college grads who've had to move back in with Mommy and Daddy for the last 3 years might vote for Obama, but Obama is rapidly losing the support of young voters (in addition to Latinos).

    what I want to know, is when will he stop giving speeches, and get to work on the economy...he proposes a bill that not even his own senate will pass, and then fires at the republicans? What a ploy.
    I wish he'd get out of campaign mode, and do some real work...
    spending cuts!!! fiscal responsibility,,, tell your wife, no more vacations until we have a decrease in the unemployment rate......
