I`m sure Obama would love to skip the debates all together. 2 more months of dismal economic news and 3 beatings in the debates will be very entertaining to watch.

Obama is a very very good debator

Romney???? not so much.

Romney struggled with Michelle Bachman and Rick Perry aka dumb and dumber you think he would give out "3 beatings"?

Yeah I want some of what you are smoking.

This is a good one...


Romney: I'll keep parts of obamacare... Please spin if you don't mind.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who has called for scrapping President Barack Obama's 2010 U.S. healthcare law, said in remarks aired on Sunday that he likes key parts of "Obamacare" despite his party's loathing of it and wants to retain them.

Romney, who faces Obama in the Nov. 6 election, has vowed throughout the campaign to repeal and replace the Obama healthcare law. But asked about the Obama healthcare law on NBC's "Meet the Press" program, Romney said, "Well, I'm not getting rid of all of healthcare reform."

"Of course, there are a number of things that I like in healthcare reform that I'm going to put in place," Romney added. "One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage. Two is to assure that the marketplace allows for individuals to have policies that cover their family up to whatever age they might like."

The Obama healthcare law, among other provisions, prevents insurance companies from denying medical coverage to people who already are suffering from a medical condition. It also allows parents to keep their young-adult children on their health insurance plans until age 26.

The law is Obama's signature domestic policy achievement.

Elements of the state healthcare reform plan that Romney put in place as governor of Massachusetts served as a model for the federal law passed by the U.S. Congress and signed by Obama in 2010 despite unified Republican opposition.

"I say we're going to replace Obamacare. And I'm replacing it with my own plan. And even in Massachusetts when I was governor, our plan there deals with pre-existing conditions and with young people," Romney told "Meet the Press."

On the day the Supreme Court upheld the Obama law in June, Romney said the American people must vote the president out of office in order to "get rid of Obamacare." The law is the most sweeping overhaul since the 1960s of the unwieldy U.S. healthcare system.

The Obama law was meant to bring coverage to more than 30 million of the roughly 50 million uninsured and slow soaring medical costs. Republicans say it meddles in the lives of individuals and in the business of the states.

On the divisive social issue of abortion, Romney said it "would be my preference" that the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling legalizing it be overturned by any justices who he would appoint to the U.S. Supreme Court if vacancies come up.

"Well, there are a number of things I think that need to be said about preserving and protecting the life of the unborn child. And I recognize there are two lives involved: the mom and the unborn child," Romney said.

"And I believe that people of good conscience have chosen different paths in this regard. But I am pro-life and will intend, if I'm president of the United States, to encourage pro-life policies," he added.

Well, here in CT, our Senator Richard Blumenthal lied about serving in Viet Nam. He claimed it several times, then it was discovered that he had never served, and it was all lies to engratiate himself with audiences. Of course here in CT, they didn't care about his lies...and he won the Senate Seat easily. Liberals have no problems with lies, when it's their guy. Nope...none at all.

They also have 0 problem with Elizabeth Warren and her lying about her heritage. Which is worse?

Gallup looks like the post Job's report polling trended back down for Obama, and Rasmussen is down a point today. So it appears that the National convention bounce is no longer trending up. It will be interesting to see if Obama returns to the Post Ryan lead of about 1 percent or the Pre Ryan August lead of about 3% . . .

I'm guessing it will stabilize around 2% or a little higher until the debates.

I don't understand why everyone is thinking Obama has this thing in the bag on a day when Romney just took the lead again in the Rasmussen poll, and Bernanke announced QE3, which is going to drive gas prices up to $4.50 by election time while adding no jobs.

It's all about the electoral college. Obama has the lead in all the states that matter.

Razor thin and volatile.

Rasmussen has a Republican House effect . . . not much of one but when you factor the aggregate of polling, Obama has a lead. Not as much as it appears, but a lead.

You also have to remember that Obama is still an excellent candidate . . . not an excellent president but an excellent candidate. Romney is not.

well looks like Obama is going to be our president. Lets hope the teabag party are willing to compromise so we can fix these problems.

If Americans go to the polls to elect Obama as President and truly support his agenda , they need to elect Democrats in the House and Senate as well. If Republicans are now seen as obstructionists, vote them out and get him a rubber stamp Congress that will approve everything he wants. If not, you get what you get. I will actively campaign against and help finance anyone running against any Republican who supports higher taxes, increased spending, and corporate bailouts.

Rasmussen has a long and impressive track record. Even Nate Silver has called it the most accurate in the past.

But let's just forget the polls for a minute and use a little common sense.

THINGS ARE F*CKING HORRIBLE! How could an Incumbent be a shoe in to win 2 months prior to the election?

It just defies common sense.
