They need to keep the split screen. Obie's mugging for the audience, who given the location are likely to be largely .

Obie's doing a good job of "this is what I've done & this is what I still want to do".

Less demand = lower prices

As I said, Obie won the debate before it started; regardless of performance. Haven't you been listening to the media the past week?

Obie just said tax credits grow the economy.

Romney needs to clearly make the point that "lower tax rates with fewer deductions" > "higher tax rates with many deductions". That's hard for a lot of folks to understand and carries a lot of emotion.

Obie is beating that class warfare drum hard.

And there goes Big Bird again.

Mitt finally landed a good blow on balancing a budget and national debt.

Wow. She just tried to pin Romney with saying he'd raise taxes.

Somebody needs to throw a flag...

I wish some one would just say

When the business men realized a socialist was going to become president the economy started to slow down because every one was so scared that he was going to tax businesses out of existance and redistribute the wealth.

This almost stopped the economy in it's tracks.

This caused a lack of demand, so prices on fuel went down.

His mother was rarely a single mom.

His grandfather owned a successful machine tool shop that he sold and moved to Hawaii - with his bank VP wife. Not quite as humble as he'd like to project, with a lifetime of high $ private schools.
