    When I listened to Eastwood, I was sort of scratching my head to figure out if he was just a rambling, old guy. Back then some pundits said the ad-lib speech was genius ... I'm beginning to believe Eastwood is a wily old guy. He left an "image" that people continue to remember.

    I agree to an extent... however with me it's to the point I don't even think of Clint any more when I see an empty chair... I think of our pathetic failure of a president...

    In last night's debate Obama said that there is a loophole that gives companies incentives when they ship jobs overseas. Romney said he has been in business over 25 years and never heard of that. My question to Obama is why didn't you do something about it. He acts like he was not in office for the last 4 years. He just campaigns like he will fix other people's mistakes.

    Obama had NO response!!!
    "...like Solyndra and the others that contributed to your campaign." %%^&%* hilarious as Obama had no reply and shrugged.

    I thought Romney won. I am not sure what happened to Obamab, but he didn't show up as forceful as I thought he would. That being said, I was disappointed with the debate as a whole. I thought it was a pretty boring. I dont' think either one really said anything new. It left me with more questions than it answered.

    Although I slant the other way, I have to say Romney took the debate. But, I think there is more substance out of my kennel run when Titan and Zeus get into a debate. (Actually, Zeus, says he is running for Congress. His slogan is "Put a dog in the house.")

    How about when Lehrer asked Obama what he thought about trickle down economics and Obama said "uh" and changed the subject to education and teachers or some such!!
