How can anyone determine a winner, much less there be a debate, when they agree on all of the same policies and issues? I guess the winner will be determined by the best haircut (Romney) or by which can offer the most awesomest speeches (Obama).

I say...

Jerry Curl vs. Dapper Dan.

Online commentary?

Are there any websites where we can watch lively commentary during the debate?

Please post url. thanks.

I prefer

Dr. Pepper

its a agreement, not a debate

its a agreement, not a debate :P

Why so many downvotes? Who would do that?

Did I miss something? In fact, I thought the Coke vs. Pepsi analogy was spot on. ??

I think they are downvoting the debate itself not the analogy...

I think most people can see these two fools are two cheeks of the same butt...

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Here's a drinking game for tonight's debate...

Any time they mention indefinite detention of American citizens - drink.
Any time they mention the debasement of our currency because of the Fed and Ben Bernanke - drink.
Any time they mention ending the unconstitutional wars and bringing the troops home from all over the world- drink.
Any time they mention ending the Patriot Act- drink.

I know it's Wed and many of us have work tomorrow but don't worry it will be impossible to get drunk...

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Here is a game to play if you want to get drunk

Any time they refer to the election as a "choice", drink.

Any time they say the word "jobs", drink.

Any time they mention "medicare", drink.

Any time they say the words "middle class", drink.

Any time they say the word "taxes", drink.

Be safe out there. I wouldn't want anyone to get alcohol poisoning.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis

If we followed that most

If we followed that most people would pass out within a few minutes

Also anytime they mention Iran...

drink! lol

Good analogy!

Pepsi has too much syrup and Coke has too much gas. Neither one is good for anybody. Both contain GMO high fructose corn syrup in the regular versions and brain damaging aspertame in the diet varities. Some very bad, sickening stuff in both brands of the cola formulas.

Looks like we are being forced to swallow one or the other, with all the nausea we've been experiencing since the last week of August. In fact, cola has already been ordered for us. Expect to be forced to take even larger doses for the vomiting soon to be upon us after November 6th.

ReBLOODlicans and the DemoCRIPS. What else do you expect from them?

My design ahead of today's debate.

I've had enough of this 2-party farce. I designed this last night to remind the red team and blue team about what their candidates really are about.

coke vs coke zero


more like Coke Zero vs Diet Coke

Coke Zero vs. Diet Pepsi

That's what its like.

Both are poisonous and best not ingested.

Dog Poop vs. Cat Poop

Dog Poop vs. Cat Poop
I'm not going to watch a lying poop debate. Come November I am not going choose either one from the restaurant menu. There's at least one other choice and I'm ordering it!

The debate is a FARCE.

Neither one of these candidates have the intellect or ability to have a true debate.

It will be scripted and acted out like a stage play. They will spend the day rehearsing their lines and facial expressions and body movements.

Does anyone still believe any of this BS?

I wonder who the oligarchy has chosen to win? and rigged the voting machines to that produce that result.

The Show Must Go On

Why do they have to spend big dollars to create a special stage for the debates? New lumber, lot's of sawing and hammering and expensive construction. Is this taxpayer money?

There is a local church here that holds 3500 people. I can throw two podiums up there and have it ready for a debate with five minutes notice.

The Kennedy Nixon debate was a couple of chairs and a podium

What they both don't have in substance they need to make up in symbolism. The debates have become a staged event, a made for TV mini series so they need a big stage. LOL

I just wish Ron Paul had won

I just wish Ron Paul had won the nomination and could speak to so many asleep people. The debates would talk about real issues, now we'll get arguments over who changed their mind the least.

we all wish the same

we all wish the same

Bishop Willard vs. The Dragon Emperor Barack Hussein?

Bishop Willard vs. The Dragon Emperor Barack Hussein? Oh yeah, sounds like a real WWE production.

What are they going to debate? Who has the lower handicap in golf? Who has more dishes served at dinner? Whose wife has more personal assistants?

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

I posted this comment at We Are Change Denver,

Occupy the Debates, Jerry Doyle, Jon Stewart, Howard Stern and Adam Kokesh.

"These debates should not be allowed to occur unless Garry Johnson, Jill Stein and any other candidate on enough ballots to win are not allowed to participate."

What happens in the next 16 hours will tell us a lot about whether or not we can turn this country around in a peaceful manner.

I Doubt This Will Be A Slug Fest

since both of them have the exact same voting record. I predict this will be 2 hours of dodging questions and a whole bunch of patriotic rhetoric...

They will save the slugging for the campaign speeches when the other one isn't around to slug back.

The good news is we wont need sleeping pills tonight since this "debate" will put the nation to sleep after the national anthem.

Comedy Show

Since the debate that will be telecast tonight is a pre-staged comedy show between two AIPAC puppets, I thought it appropriate to provide a link to a sobering reality site that offers nothing but facts regarding America's destructive, murderous, foreign policy around the globe. The authors name is William Blum and anybody that supports the cause of liberty should do him or herself a real solid and check it out.Also, Bill's book "Freeing The World to Death - Essays on the American Empire" is one of the best out there ! Talk about a wake up call ?? Put your seatbelts on before you read this. Here is his website address. www.killinghope.org
