Obama and Romney debate coming to Denver

Finally, the fall season offers the matchup sure to attract the biggest audience of the campaign: President Barack Obama goes one-on-one with Republican rival Mitt Romney in three prime-time debates.

Typically the top political draw in the final sprint to Election Day, the debates assume outsized importance this year with the race a dead heat.

The two polished candidates will have their sound bites and rhetoric down cold so any slip or inadvertent move, like President George H.W. Bush's exasperated glance at his watch or Democrat Al Gore's repeated sighing, could roil the campaign for days and linger in voters' mind until Nov. 6.

The first debate is set for Oct. 3 in Denver. The other two will take place later in the month.

    We should make some bets on how many times Obama stutters while thinking of a good lie, when he goes off the teleprompter.

      Not a very good poker player. When one hears "I-I,I,I,I-I,I" that is his tell.

    There is nothing as entertaining as the head tele-prompter reader ditching the prompters! Perhaps if we are lucky perhaps the second tele-prompter reader known as the "gaff-o-matic" will assist with an encore!

    The dynamic duo of Romney and Ryan would drive the entire economy into a nose dive as long as it benefits the richest Americans. Income inequality is endangering the Middle Class and making paupers of us all who don’t have those millions upon millions of dollars. Read more about the role of Romney’s riches in this election and the power of his sacred undergarments at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/05/mitt-romneys-magic-mormon-underwear.html The working class of our country can’t AFFORD to allow this election to be bought and sold!

    The ongoing Plan: 9/11 ("false flag" attack planned by Bush & co.) 7/7 "false flag" in London (Blair seals the Pact with Bush) The War in Iraq The next expansion of the territory of Israel. The future collapse of the World financial system All these are not individual events but instead part of the Zionist Plan. Once again, the next US presidential election will be fixed. Mitt Romney will be elected even though Barack Obama will have received more votes in the 2012 election. The political assassination will be perpetrated by Bush hiding behind Crossroads GPS, the most influential group of Neocons. The Neocons will have Mitt Romney elected to first use him and then let him fall easy prey. All blames and responsibilities will fall on the new Mormon president for the events already planned. The new World War of Religion is already a done deal behind the backs of all people. There is only one Solution. www.wavevolution.org
