So long Colorado… we're Kentucky bound

Denver, Colorado (CNN) - The morning after.

Workers here at the debate site at the University of Denver are breaking down the stage and podium used in Wednesday night's first presidential showdown.

The stage and podium are being packed up and transported to Danville, Kentucky, site of next week's vice presidential debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan, the Republican running mate.

    Obama didn't have the time to prepare for the debate that Romney had. Things Obama did have time for:
    The View
    Late Night
    Multiple Fundraisers
    Golf
    Basketball
    More Golf
    More Fundraisers

    Ah the demanding life of a rock star. Note to Obama: Your groupies can't do all of your fighting for you. Once in a while you have to debate.

    Three debates: two presidential and 1 vice presidential. It's widely accepted that Romney overwhelmingly won the first debate. The loss of another debate could just turn this presidential race upside down. Imagine Obama's horror that his political future may rest on Biden!
    "Okay, Tom Brady had his shot and didn't deliver. Lets pull him out until next half and put in this 7 year old, severely vision impaired child and see what he can do."
    Not a good scenario for Obama.

    If you elect Mitt I will be smiling when I pay $2000 a year more in taxes, I can afford it. Will you be smiling when you pay yours.

    Obama Supporter methodology–
    If someone tells you that Romney won the debate in Colorado, counter with the following highly-effective argument:
    "Did not!"
    After all, that was the key to Obama's success in Colorado.

    Historically debates change polling a 1/2%. When you're down anywhere from 6-9% in OH it would take a massive GAFF for Romney to make that up. GOOD LUCK:)

    They can't be blamed really. It's all in the wiring of the Obama Supporters' brains. For example, if Romney or Ryan speak, regardless of what they are saying, it triggers a response from Obama Supporters that makes them scream "Liar!". It's kind of like a sneeze. Similarly, if asked why people should support Obama based on his last four years of presidency, the Obama supporter will go into a sneezing fit of "47%! Tax Returns! Bain Capital! Liar! Liar!"
    This seems to be a pre-existing condition. I wonder if it's covered under Obamacare.

    "We'll get'em next time"!!!Hahahaha! Seems that when our brilliant Pres goes head to head with a real leader, he's a clam. Obama was faced with a rebuttal of the smear campaign he has launched and he got creamed. But ill give the incredibly gifted orator some credit, he didn't walk off stage with his head between his legs crying after the brow beating he took on EVERY issue. If I had a 4 year presidential record that our Messiah has to defend, I guess even a cherished Harvard degree, a great golf handicap and jump shot, couldn't help me either. But u libs stick with your excuses and keep blaming GWB, GOP, wall steet, rich people and anyone else except for the man responsible, for his failures... Americans are smarter then your liberal spin... Facts don't lie and the facts are that Obama is a failure and liberism doesn't work and never has.
    We need leadership and Romney is a leader!
    One and done for Obama and welcome back America party on Nov 6th!!! You're ALL invited...
