    Presidential Debate #2

    I am pretty sure many of us will be watching the debate. I was wondering on what some of your expectations are for both candidates.

    Personally, I am expected a stacked deck of pro-Obama town hall participants and a moderator who will carry the banner if need be.

    Expecting a strong Obama performance b.c of the soft format but I also think any moderator bias will be easily spotted b.c of the format.

    I expect a tie.

    "They" will want to drive as many viewers as possible into watching the final debate.

    I expect both candidates to acknowledge that we have real problems and be as unspecific as possible on what the reality of solving them is.

    The first guy to tell the truth, taxes on the middle class have to go up, we are going to have to reduce our life style to pay down the debt that our security and entitlement guarantees demand is done.

    It'll be a tie alright. The fix is in, what a couple of spineless poofters.

    Time's Mark Halperin has made himself useful for once by obtaining, and publishing, a copy of the 21-page memorandum of understanding that the Obama and Romney campaigns negotiated with the Commission on Presidential Debates establishing the rules governing this month's presidential and vice presidential face-offs. The upshot: Both campaigns are terrified at anything even remotely spontaneous happening.

    They aren't permitted to ask each other questions, propose pledges to each other, or walk outside a "predesignated area." And for the town-hall-style debate tomorrow night, the audience members posing questions aren't allowed to ask follow-ups (their mics will be cut off as soon as they get their questions out). Nor will moderator Candy Crowley.

    Most bizarrely, given the way the debates have played out, the rules actually appear to forbid television coverage from showing reaction shots of the candidates: "To the best of the Commission's abilities, there will be no TV cut-aways to any candidate who is not responding to a question while another candidate is answering a question or to a candidate who is not giving a closing statement while another candidate is doing so." The "best of the Commission's abilities" must be rather feeble, seeing as how almost every moment of the two debates so far was televised in split-screen, clearly showing shots of a "candidate who is not responding to a question while another candidate is answering a question."

    Not this kind of thing is new with you, but when your guys lose to them, you don't get to say they suck. Basic logic.

    This has been a retread of the first debate. Same topics. Just a more stimulated Obama.

    He has a new talking point tonight...

    Oh, I didn't pass that bill?

    It's Congress' fault...

    The immigration stance for instance...

    Romney: Dude had super majority, did nothing

    Obama: Congress won't let me pass anything

    'Bout sums it up...
