Mchale...you I would have an honest conversation with. I am just not going to do it on my IPad at the moment. You will notice that I directed the post to Swamp, primarily to bust his chops. BTW, not possible to have an adult convo w/Swamp.

Ok, don't end futures trading. Make every product made in the world available to buy on the board via paper. If I want to buy on paper 500,000 widgits made at a factory and not have to actually own the product and 5 days later I can sell the product that I bought on paper and make the price for that product fluctuate between profit or loss for that company then I should be allowed to do so. That is what is happening when commodities that I actually produce are traded by speculators. The least they should have to do if they are going to buy the product is take delivery of it. If they are going to sell the product they should have to deliver the actual product. Paper trading should NOT exist. Period! True economic supply and demand pricing is not working when speculation on paper determines prices.
I'm not even going to provide an answer to this. Its flat out crazy-talk.

Yeah, no need to reply since I wasn't asking for an answer. Just stating fact.
You can answer this for me.......   What do you do for a living?

Swamp...what was your favorite STANDING TALL moment for Willard?

A. The Wile E. Coyote moment on Libya, where Obama told Willard to "Proceed" knowing full well were he was going to go, and sure enough, Willard with the Acme Libya meme, went there.

B. Binders full of women (did that line make you hard?)

C. Answering the Immigration question by bringing up Obama's Illinois state pension.

D. Bringing up that he was for 100% of America at the very end and opening the door for Obama to get the last word in on the 47% comment with no chance for rebuttal.

Just to make your day I will also respond to this without reading the full response of the other poster.

A You know of course that everyone said that in fact Romeny was right and Obama was wrong. So if it wasnt for the inappropriate actions of Crowly Romney would have expalined it. Candy worked pretty hard all night protecting her boyfroend.

B Another minor slip. Not about policy or reality. Arnt you going to ask me about Romney's Elevator?

C not sure I remember this point. The only comment I remember about Obama's pension is when Obama was trying to attack issue on his investments and Romney nailed him by saying his investments also were in China.

D There were a few times when Romney was trying to have an adult conversation and state what he believed and Obama used his debate training to score points. America didnt see the debate as making a difference. They are still slowly moving towards Romney.

"Acts of terror" = terrorist attacks. Come on Swamp...hold your mancrush for just a minute...Romney was wrong, thought he was right and ran into the "wall" like Wile E. Coyote running into a painted tunnel. And then getting hit by the truck coming out of the painted tunnel. "Please. Proceed."

What does "acts of terror" mean, if not "terrorist acts"?

Really, Obama is Crowley's boyfriend? If the Romney team is so stupid to allow that to happen, then he clearly does not deserve to be president!

I did not see it that way.... and interestingly enough Gallup and Rasmussen polls continue to have the momentum in mitts corner. Especially for independents. Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina polling has come out since the 2nd debate. Ohio remained the same 49 Obama, 48 Mitt.... new Hampshire and Nevada tightened up for mitt.... nc is pulling ahead for mitt. Gallup just had mitt up 7% among likely voters.

I would think if mitt blundered as much as you suggest the opposite results would be occurring right now. Just sayin.

I don't think there's anything out there yet that includes very much post debate polling.

Romney was not wrong on that point. He simply didn't phrase his argument correctly, which has been one of the biggest problem during his candidacy.

As I mentioned earlier, any attack on a US embassy can correctly be called an "act of terror". That doesn't mean that you acknowledge al-Quada's connection.

If you sincerely believe that Obama meant that al-Quada was responsible, then you have to face the fact that for the next two weeks the WH LIED about it and blamed a video and a protest that we now know never happened. It cannot be both.

McHale,

There is also another consideration, and that is what is said publicly at a given point in time might not necessarily reveal everything that is known. I am inclined to give the benefit of the doubt to those that have far more info than we do. And I am sure they were still piecing together what happened. You don't want to rush out and make statements that you will later have to walk back just because you had to say something. Look, we ask people to do an impossible job, under impossible circumstances. Has there ever been a president that everyone liked and agreed with? And in our hyper-heated 24/7 news cycle we just make things worse. No room for reflection, no room for diplomacy. We are in serious trouble as a nation and that goes beyond the person in the Oval Office. It is who we have become as a people, what we value, what we don't value, etc. To quote Pogo, "We have met the enemy, and he is us."
