The largest and clearest point of distinction in the presidential race is universal access to health insurance. If President Obama wins reelection, his law to provide access to the uninsured will go forward.

Romney is one sick puppy and does not deserve any airspace at all.

Willard is bought and paid for and will tow the party line. He's just a weasel and so disgusting that I'm going to have a hard time watching the debates.

I am going to watch the debate in just a few minutes. Want to see Mittens make an ass of himself AGAIN.

Mittens lied again and again during the debate. It seems he was in a manic state; that would explain why his wife said she is worried about his 'mental state'...

Rmoney's body language, phoney facial expressions, voice, etc., have before this, suggested Insecurity, Desire to please, Kowtowing to Public Opinion... not very confidence- building in a potential Prez!
I and others FULLY EXPECTED A MELT-DOWN during, or even before, the Debates. Mitt the Twit was NOT HANDLING HIMSELF WELL. He was having "temper tantrums" backstage and LOSING IT. Even Ann Rmoney, said she was worried about his mental health!

Somehow, all this CHANGED OVERNIGHT. Rmoney spoke very rapidly and non-stop and wouldn't be interrupted. He DID look, for a change, CONFIDENT. Not at ALL what we expected, could have expected from previous live interviews and videos, where he appeared anxious, and with that nervous, wide-eyed eyebrows-up eager-to-please look!
He morphed into the aggressive high-school bully with the scissors in his hand, into the guy on the Mother Jones video speaking confidently to those who he knew liked him in the first place.

Of course it was a GREAT advantage for Rmoney, that the debate people were persuaded, for the first time in Presidential debate history, to let him see the questions IN ADVANCE. So he could REHEARSE. And rehearse and rehearse and rehearse.... until "perfect". {And, given the Koch brothers' influence, probably the QUESTIONS were DESIGNED to please the Rmoney camp, also.}

But, a lot of people see MORE than just "canned answers and rehearsals" here. The WAY Rmoney spoke.... well, Cocaine is said to give people super-confidence in themselves, super-energy. A feeling you are the king of the world, can't be stopped. Of course, using that would be illegal, wouldn't it. However, there are now synthetic DESIGNER DRUGS that imitate the effects of ANYthing. And some of these Designer Drugs are too new to be illegal, yet.
Besides a Cocaine High {or imitation one}, other people have said they detected a Speed, or Methamphetamine High. Others have seen just a plain Caffeine High. {Caffeine being banned for Mormons, if he used it or some synthetic substitute that had the same effect, Rmoney might be super-susceptible to even a small amount of it.}

Anyway, some sort of a Speed-Freak High would explain a LOT -- the BULLYING attitude, the IGNORING of time limits, the RAPID talking as if to get it all out before it's forgotten, and the "CONFIDENT" carriage and body language, which are otherwise SO STRANGE to see in Rmoney's usually zombie-like, robotic self. Even his "death-look" eyes, looked somehow different!
I'm just sayin'. It's not necessarily anything illegal. It may be just a Caffeine high. But, it's gotta be SOMEthing. SOMEthing has changed about Rmoney's public appearance. You COULDN'T NOT notice it! {Double negative.}

One strategy of the Rmoney camp, is to TURN OFF BLACK VOTERS who of course will vote Democrat. This they do not only by purging voter rolls, and challenging dark-skinned voters at the polls, and other underhanded tactics. They also are going to want to use every possible trick-in-the-book between now and Election Day.

One tactic I perceive operating here, is to discourage Black voters from enthusiastically turning out for President Obama, by MAKING OBAMA LOOK WEAK. It reminds me of that scene in "Roots", where the white owner rapes the about-to-be-married black slave woman and her slave husband "loses his manhood" in her eyes, because THERE'S NOT A SINGLE THING HE CAN DO ABOUT IT.

President Obama is "a scholar and a gentleman" -- he can hardly be anything ELSE, and "respectably" represent the U.S. here and abroad! He can't be a boor and a bully, not in public anyway! {And, given what I think of Michelle, I don't believe he for an instant would get away with such an attitude "at home"!} In ANY Debate, he has to keep his famous "cool" and show restraint and reason!

Given Rmoney's BOORISH, UNRESTRAINED SUPPORTERS {and we certainly SEE them here on Care2! as everywhere}, Rmoney's tactics appear to be "LET THE DOGS OUT", "PUT ON THE BOXING GLOVES". Or, NO, PUT ON THE BRASS KNUCKLES! And Obama, by the very nature of his POSITION, canNOT stoop to "using the Brass Knuckles"!!!
Therefore, a super-hyped-up Mitt Romney {whether on Drugs, or just a personal High based on pep-talks and the Mormon god's blessings -- ONE of the Mormon gods, Mormons are Polytheistic} -- a hyped-up Mitt Romney, with a surge of adrenalin or endorphins or whatever animating his frame,
will unrestrainedly RANT, BULLY, BELLOW, LIE SHAMELESSLY, DEFAME, DO WHATEVER HE PLEASES -- and the Black Man will be seen as HELPLESS, at best, to stop him! A "weak" representative of their "race" -- is supposed to then "turn off" those Black voters who voted for Obama before.... that appears, to ME, to be the sneaky-but-oh-so-clever, KARL ROVE STRATEGY for winning....

It of course DOESN'T MATTER A HOOT WHAT RMONEY SAYS.... or what EITHER of them say, for that matter.
About "Policy", that is.
What DOES matter, is the APPEARANCES.
What DOES matter, is that the Bully can LIE -- and the President can't stop him! The Bully can Break the rules -- the Black Guy is helpless. The Bully can Strut his stuff -- and the response is tepid! The more Bully, the better for Rmoney and the Rethugs!

Note: This does not reflect what *I*, personally, think about Black people or White people or Voters of any Race or Color. This is how I INTERPRET WHAT SEEMS TO BE A NEW RMONEY STRATEGY. Which of course comes from his Handlers, which of course ultimately means Karl Rove.

To sum up, briefly, what I have stated above:
I believe it is ALMOST CERTAIN, that Mitt Rmoney was on some sort of DRUGS, during the Debate.
The debates are a matter MUCH TOO IMPORTANT, for Karl Rove and Rmoney's handlers to leave to CHANCE. And to how Mitt HAPPENED to be feeling that evening: Manic, or its opposite!
This ALSO explains their Strategy, of wanting the Debate questions in advance {breaking with all precedence for Presidential debates}.
Under Drugs, Rmoney wouldn't be able to "reason" the answers to unexpected questions {not that he ever would be, anyway!}.
This way, Rmoney could memorize the answers to each question; and rehearse, and rehearse, until he was letter-perfect.
Being under the influence of some sort of drugs, would also explain Rmoney's rapid delivery, his repeating himself, his speaking over Jim Lehrer, and his unstoppability once he got going.
Ever see a person on Speed? {Methamphetamines}. Extremely similar.

It's right in front of you, folks.
You just maybe don't want to see it.
Hitler also was hyped-up on drugs.
Utilizing the latest Medical developments of his time.
This is just a dog-and-pony show, DESIGNED to get Mitt Rmoney elected by ANY MEANS possible, to be a FRONT for his Corporate backers and their wishes to rape our entire Planet's resources.....

Cocaine is a drug WELL-KNOWN to lead to feelings of "Confidence" and "Ease", almost to the point of megalomania, "you can do nothing wrong".....
There may be Designer Drugs with similar effects. What is NOTEWORTHY, is that Mitt Rmoney's behavior, his BODY LANGUAGE, CHANGED ABSOLUTELY OVERNIGHT. I repeat, OVERNIGHT. {Like his orange "tan"! That wasn't from any "natural" process of "development"!}
How you are SEEN on TV, is MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT EITHER CANDIDATE ACTUALLY HAD TO SAY.
PERCEPTION, IS THE WHOLE THING.
The Drug with Cocaine-like effects, in giving Mitt "Confidence", UNLEASHED HIS "INNER BULLY" -- WHICH WAS HIDING THERE ALL ALONG.
This stance is DESIGNED TO APPEAL TO ALL THE RACISTS, BULLIES AND HOMOPHOBES IN THE REPUKELICAN PARTY.
Obama is not only a President who has to act Presidential -- that is, with restraint -- he is also by nature a Scholar and a Gentleman. Therefore, against a Rampant Raging nothing-is-too-Obscene BULLY, it is SET UP SO THAT OBAMA WILL LOOK WEAK. President Obama is FORCED to play by a different, a CIVILIZED set of rules!
The USUAL rules!
Rmoney gets creds for BREAKING THE RULES. {Among his followers.} Obama disappoints, looks like a pantywaist sissy who caves in to the Bully. A weak Contender.
The Debates are intended to be a TRAP, an AMBUSH, set up to be so from the moment the Debate rules were changed.
Karl Rove is a guy you wouldn't want to play a game of chess against!

BMutiny is so right, there's something happening with Rmoney, I agree he's under some influence of either legal of illegal drugs. It's incredible how he's changed 180 degrees over night. Be aware, don't get fooled by this creep...!! and yes, PERCEPTION is the whole thing....again: don't get fooled by him !!!

Romney seemed to be in a manic state; that would explain why he spoke so quickly and repeated the same lines over and over.
His wife says she worries about his "mental well being"; now we know what she was talking about!
