October 03, 2012 9:26 PM Debate Live-Blog II: Second Segment

By Ed Kilgore

First segment ran way, way over. This one is on deficit.

* Mitt promises to croak Big Bird. Don’t quite know why he had to point that out.

* Glad to see BHO bring up 10-1 question during primary debate. Mitt really needs to pay for that.

* Maybe it’s just me, but Mitt seems to be getting a little frantic.

* Ah, here’s the supply-side argument! Apparently, anything else is Spanish.

* Lehrer really letting these guys take total control.

* Romney clearly fixated on responding to every BHO point.

* Don’t know if Mitt ought to be identifying himself with Tommy Thompson right now.

    Yeah Mittens. You don't want to cut current retiree benefits, you just want to screw me and my generation. We have thirty years invested, douchebag, and now you want to change the rules of the game. Screw you for wanting to screw us.

    Romney is real good with the numbers on Obama's programs and pretends to offer specifics on his programs, but there are no numbers there. Still, Romney's response to whether he supports Simpson/Bowles, where he said that Obama should have jumped on it, and then, when admonished by Lehrer to indicate whether he supports it, says, "no, I have my own plan," may well be the best gaffe of the evening.

    Does Lehrer understand what the role of moderator means?
