I have to be honest with you. I love these debates. These things are great.Mitt Romney • While discussing last night’s Presidential Debate during his speech at a campaign rally in Virginia Beach on Wednesday. Surprisingly, Mitt chose not to address the recent terrorist attack in Libya, and instead hammered President Obama for what the Republican candidate perceived as a lack of any real agenda for his second term. ”When it comes to his policies, and his answers, and his agenda, [President Obama’s] pretty much running on fumes,” said Romney, adding, “The American people want real answers.” source
They showed up there, and they did not have permission…The photo-op they did wasn’t even accurate. [Paul Ryan] did nothing. He just came in here to get his picture taken at the dining hall.Brian J. Antal, president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society. He’s irritated that the Romney campaign had Paul Ryan stop by his soup kitchen, unannounced, and pose for pictures while “washing pots and pans that did not appear to be dirty,” as the Washington Post puts it. Antal is particularly distressed at the prospect of his center appearing to take political position, as he believes that could jeopardize its continued existence: “We are apolitical because the majority of our funding is from private donations,” he explained. “I can’t afford to lose funding from these private individuals.” Here’s the photo in question. source
We have a joke around here. Pretty soon we’re going to have such long commercial breaks that people are going to tune in and all they’ll hear is: ‘Hello, welcome to News 3. And goodbye.’Lisa Howfield, general manager of local NBC-afficiliate KSNV - Commenting on the increasingly long, and repetitive, commercial breaks that are beginning to wear thin on many television viewers in/around Las Vegas. The city just set a new record for most political ads in a single year, passing the old record of 73,000, with nearly a month to go before Election Day 2012. In total, 98 ads are currently in circulation on Las Vegas television networks, and are being run more than 10,000 times per week. source

The only relevant comparison that I see between your campaign and Friday Night Lights is in the character of Buddy Garrity — who turned his back on American car manufacturers selling imported cars from Japan…Please come up with your own campaign slogan.Friday Night Lights creator Peter Berg, in an irritated letter to Mitt Romney. Berg is annoyed that the Romney campaign has appropriated a tagline from his TV series—“Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose”—for use on the campaign trail. “Your use of the expression falsely and inappropriately associates Friday Night Lights with the Romney/Ryan campaign,” Berg writes. “Your politics and campaign are clearly not aligned with the themes we portrayed in the series.” Oddly enough, the author of the book upon which the series is based has endorsed Romney for president. source (pdf)
We don’t have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don’t have insurance.Mitt Romney today. Actually, about 26,000 Americans die every year because they don’t have health insurance, so Romney is flatly wrong (and, in our eyes, being a bit disrespectful to about 26,000 American families). He also said that “we don’t have a setting across this country where if you don’t have insurance, we just say to you, ‘Tough luck, you’re going to die when you have your heart attack.’” source
