- 10:45pm CDT, Monday -
Sandy made landfall along the New Jersey coast earlier Monday evening sometime around 7:30pm CDT wreaking havoc to all in its path. We now wait for the sun to come up to see just how bad it all was during and after landfall. Going to be real bad in a lot of places I’m afraid with deaths and injuries on top of it. Our prayers go out to all those that got hurt the most, to self and properties.

Romney/Obama Presidential Debate #3


Romney/Obama Presidential Debate #3
Third and Last Debate Tonight between Romney and Obama
Start time 8:00pm CDT
Monday, October 22, 2012
    This 3rd and last debate between Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama will start this evening at 8:00pm, CDT and like all the others, it too will be shown on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, as well as all the cable news channels including Fox News, CNN and MSNBC amongst others.
.
   Tonight’s Debate Moderator will be CBS News Bob Schieffer. I for one have always like Mr. Schieffer and have found him to be a strong, fair journalist. He should do us one fantastic job this evenings, making it possibly the best of the Debates this year! It’s not his first rodeo here you know. This final Debate will last for around 1 ½ hours.
.
    Tonight’s debate is mainly setup for the discussion of Foreign Policy… SOOO I do hope that they again, get into the weeds of the non protests and terror attacks that killed our Libyan Ambassador and three others.
.
    As I said before the 1st debate… what once was believed to be the main issue of this election year, our faltering economy and all that goes along with it, has now given way to a National Security debate too.

    This should be another fun, informative night, tonight… watching these two go after each other and trying to find the truth in the midst of all the spin. Get READY!!! And check back later, after the Debate…

………………..

Post Update:
10:45pm CDT
.
Dang, I thought Obama was going to come out and BITE Romney with that dead dog stare he was giving him all night long. Had me scared! Lol… But not my man Romney. He hung in there the whole 1 ½ hrs with that calm smile and just being very Presidential all night.
.
To me Obama seemed like a Chicago thug most of the night. Romney on the other hand stayed above the fray the entire debate and definitely passed the Presidential test.
.
Who won? Well… I give it to Romney and I do so simply because Obama was such an ass at times… But even without that, I would still give it to Mitt for he came into tonight to do what he meant to do. He didn’t screw up… he didn’t fall into any of Obama’s lead-in tricks and he really looked more Presidential than the President did! Poor Obama, that’s gotta hurt!
.
With all that said… I would imagine that most of the average folks out there, who do not pay much attention to this kind of stuff, probably got board early on tonight without the back and forth fireworks like we had in the last debate. But man… I loved it!
.
GREAT JOB MITT ROMNEY!
The next President of the United States!!!

Romney/Obama Presidential Debate #2


Romney/Obama Presidential Debate #2
The Second of Three Debates between Romney and Obama
Will start at 8:00pm CDT, Tuesday, 10/16/12…
Original Post Date:
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
    The 2nd debate between Governor Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama will start this evening at 8:00pm, CDT and will be shown on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, as well as all the cable news channels including Fox News, CNN and MSNBC amongst others.
.
    CNN’s Liberal Journalist Carole Simpson will be our Debate Moderator this evening and like the other two debates, this too will last for 1 ½ hours.
.
    Tonight’s debate is a Town Hall setting and I would think all kinds of questions will go… I do SOOO hope that foreign policy is brought up a lot and that they get into the weeds of the non protests and terror attacks that killed our Libyan Ambassador and three others.
.
.
    As I said before the 1st debate… what once was believed to be the main issue of this election year, our faltering economy and all that goes along with it, has now given way to a National Security debate too.

    It should be a FUN NIGHT for all of us Political Junkies and for all the regular folks out there who are finally tuning in to watch for the first time.
………………...................
As we wait for tonight’s Debate to begin… I’d like to sum up the first two Debates like this. Basically… what we had in the first debate was a President that wouldn't look up… And in the second was a Vice President that couldn't find himself to shut the hell up!
.
Ahhhh…. what will tonight’s Presidential Debate bring us?
Be sure to check back afterwards!

……………………………………………………..
.
UPDATE: 10:00pm CDT
.
.Now that was a fun night of two men battling it out, sometimes right in each other's face! Haven’t ever seen that before in a debate and I loved it.
.
I think both men did very well tonight but in the end I give the Debate to Romney. Sadly though, one can bet on the MSM to surely go out of their way and spin it up all they can to pull their man, Obama up to a higher plain and as the winner. Just wasn't there, sorry. But I will say Obama did come to play tonight…
.
What really happened tonight? Well… I for one thought Romney handed Obama’s BUTT to him! Though it is also true Romney missed a few good chances that lost him a few point… We shall see how it all went down most likely this Friday when the latest Polls come out. Until then!

Felix Baumgartner landed safely today after successfully completing the highest-ever Skydiving Jump, a jump from 24 miles above the earth to be exact, that also marked the world's first Supersonic Skydive. Felix hit a top speed of 833 mph breaking the sound barrier as he hit Mach 1.24, said Red Bull Stratos officials. Organizers said the descent lasted for just over nine minutes in which about half of it was in free-fall.

Biden/Ryan VP Debate - October 11, 2012


Biden/Ryan VP Debate
Tonight’s Debate will start at 8:00pm CDT
Thursday, October 11, 2012
    The much anticipated debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Republican VP pick Paul Ryan will be held tonight, Thursday, October 11th and will be broadcast at 8:00pm, CDT on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, as well as all the cable news channels including Fox News, CNN and MSNBC amongst others.
.
    I can’t wait for the debate to get started tonight for there is one thing for certain… And that is the fact that Joe Biden has a lot riding on his performance and it seems to me that he has to at least hold his own against Paul Ryan just to keep the Democrats from completely freaking out if they should be dealt a two in a row lose in the debates!
.
    I’m getting that feeling that history is in the making tonight and a nail is being placed in the Obama/Biden Coffin.
......................................
Much more to come later tonight after the Debates have ended and I have had some time for it all to soak in on me…

ROMNEY/RYAN2012

..........................................................
My take in a nutshell… Biden had to be the Rudest, most Obnoxious Old Fart to ever participate in a debate that I have ever seen. What an ‘A’ HOLE! GREAT JOB though, Ryan! You stayed cool, calm and so respectful the entire hour and a half.
.
Many will view Joe as the winner for his STRONG STAND tonight, but being strong by being a total ass just doesn't work for most folks.
.
Bottom-line…
Republicans, TWO
Democrats, ZERO
Just 2 more Presidential Debates to go…
