From time to time, here at Hammer of Truth one of us will liveblog a debate or something. This is what it looks like.
On Wednesday October 3rd 2012, Democrat President Barack Obama squared off against challenger Republican Mitt Romney to lay into each other in the
new public blood sport democratic process of getting to know our next commander in chief. Romney has been trailing far behind Obama in projected electoral vote counts, so we’ll see if the economy, healthcare, and rule of law questions will work in his favor or against him. Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party candidate was not invited to attend despite apparent growing support and a lawsuit against the CPD due to not meeting the required 15% threshold.
An official transcript of the debate can be found here.

6:55PM: Jim Lehrer had his chair pushed in for him… aww, how sweet of his
7:00PM: Opening remarks on the economy by both candidates, Obama is more interested in making sure we keep looking For war (d) instead of at the past four years of his record. Romney comes out and has a five point plan that focuses on business, but is more about making hay of Obama’s large government programs.
7:08PM: Obama rebuts by saying we need more spending on education.
7:11PM: Obama going after Romney on tax issues. Romney rebuts with “economy tax” that Obama is crushing people with.
7:12PM: Romney “I like coal”. He wants to cut taxes.
7:16PM: Red tie/blue tie, they are both empty suits and we’re officially declaring this debate a loss for America. Why the hell didn’t they invite Gary Johnson?
7:17PM: Romney saw a study on taxes, he’s seen lots of studies. Well then.
7:21PM: Lehrer notes that we’re way over the 15 minute time limit for this segment. Romney starts talking about the price of gas. Obama wants to change the subject.
Man, I wish I could power my car with the hot air these two are spewing. see more…
