I can't hit a home run with every comment. wink mini (although you'll never find a post where I call Obama a rude name)

Quoting AdellesMom:

Pot meet kettle.

It was just an observation that others and I made about Romney. You and your peers insulted Obama.


Quoting Jambo4:

When the comment consists of no substance and just insults the candidate as an asshat... yeah.. that is poor debate skills.  (I can't remember your original comment containing the insult so keep that in mind.. but there have been a couple with the same insult and nothing more)  Those are what I am referring to.  

Quoting AdellesMom:

No, it doesn't.



A person that's able to communicate effectively can communicate with people in all walk of life.




Quoting Jambo4:

it shows poor debate skills...

Quoting SweetLuci:

 Learning to speak street slang is broadening a person's horizons? sidesplittinglaughter



Quoting AdellesMom:

No. It's a word. It's a slang term.

You obviously need to broaden your horizons.

Teleprompters in the debate.. keep relevant with your comment.

Quoting AdellesMom:

Your opinion is skewed and biased too. You know that Romney uses TelePrompTers too, don't you? There isn't anything wrong with it either. TelePrompTers are modern day note cards.

No, Romney was being a jerk. He went for the jugular and made personal insults--Obama refrained from doing so. So, Obama was seen as the "weakling" last night. Obama was being a gentleman. Obama could "jump off" if he tried.


Quoting Jambo4:

Oh it was so freaking obvious!  It took him 5 minutes to get a coherent thought gathered!  Everyone complained about how painfully slow his responses were (now we see that Romney took the initiative and jumped in because he was quick and had the words at his fingertips... Obama wasn't being a gentleman.. he couldn't jump in if he tried)

Quoting AdellesMom:

Only in your skewed and biased opinion.

Romney showed he DIDN'T need one tonight. Meanwhile, Obama? Not so much.

Uh.. no it wasn't.

I was listening to the after debate show still playing on the link posted to this and they were the ones saying what whoppers Obama was telling. (they used the word "whopper".. not me)

Quoting AdellesMom:

Well, Fox was the only source "calling out" Obama on non existent lies last night. She never responded back to say which channel she was watching either. As a matter of fact, I remember her saying that she doesn't pay attention to the "liberal media."

Quoting Jambo4:

Don't you love it?  If Obama is caught in the wrong... immediately FOX news is mentioned... 

Quoting gsprofval:

Nope not Fox.  Are you just mad because obama got caught in his lies and Romney made him look like the lier he really is?


Quoting AdellesMom:

Fox?

LOL!

I don't trust anything from that crapola and mess of a "news" station.



Quoting gsprofval:


The commentators I watched just showed how many times obama lied and Romney caught him in the lies.



Quoting AdellesMom:

If Romney had facts, why are the fact checkers saying that Romney lied more than once tonight?



Quoting babynurse454:

OMG I was thinking the same thing! Clearly Romney took this debate hands down with answers that americans wanted to know, Romney was not wish washy, Romney had the facts from both sides!!!






Quoting Jambo4:






Quoting incognito116:

Even MSNBC is saying Romney won! Hell has officially frozen over lmao

That makes sense:)

Quoting Jambo4:

Clubmom was the forerunner for CM... they only had about 250 groups and of those I moderated 2.  (it would have been the equivalent of group owner here since there was only one moderator) When they moved groups over to here they "hired" us all to start groups and to do what we could to get it up and running and then it was done after a year.  We knew it was only temporary here, but since then I've complained about CM way too much to ever get considered again.  I just hate their uneven enforcement of rules so I constantly point that out. =)

Quoting celestegood:

 So, you were a mod before?  I assume most if not all cafemom owned groups have mods.  I could be wrong, though.


Quoting Jambo4:


Nah.. they'd never pick me because I complain too much to them...lol..  Although I did used to "work" as a moderator for them before they moved to this site.


Quoting celestegood:

You can pm cafemom admins if you want on a list to be an admin!

Oh, adults still have plenty to learn, including myself. However, as an adult we should be capable of retaining that information with out it being shoved down our throats by repeating it over and over. That's not teaching, its brain-washing.


Quoting JonJon:

Adults who believe they have nothing more to learn because they are no longer kids are idiots.

Quoting brandydesiree:

Or the people who have to be told over and over are idiots. Adults shouldn't be treated like children.





Quoting JonJon:


Quoting brandydesiree:

Obama is annoying the hell out of me. Repeating the same thing over and over and over....and over...see how annoying that is?

That's how you teach people; repetition.  People who doen't want to listen stay ignorant.

My comment is relevant. The use of TelePrompTers is fine in a debate and outside of a debate. Like I said, they're modern day note cards.
