2nd Debate: Obama by a Nose

»In listening to the morning media feedback, my assessment of last night's Hofstra debate is correct: President Obama won by a few points.

»I will now revise my election-prediction: Barring a situation similar to the one where Al Gore lost to Bush in Florida, Obama will win UNLESS gasoline jumps to $5 a gallon very close to election day.

»Romney's comments about the price of gas are getting yawns this morning. That tells me the Sheeple have rolled over and wallets have become numb to $4 a gallon gas. After all, hasn't talk radio been calling that "the new norm" for the past several days? Such a perception acts on Romney's gas remarks like a muzzle on a gun. $5 a gallon and that muzzle comes off in a huge hurry.

Shoutout to WTEN Channel 10 Albany! CHRISTINE BEHIND THE SCENE! A preview of video journalism to come! Too bad their webmaster couldn't make a working link on the station homepage - that's why I had to cross out WTEN and shoutout directly to the reporter! - Here's Christine's FACEBOOK page!

FACT-CHECK NEEDED: "President Obama poured on the #ladyparts pandering during the second presidential debate last night at Hofstra University. He falsely claimed that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms to “millions” of women — a lie that went unchallenged..." Please get back to me via comments/facebook comments...

 'Binders full of women' is the breakout presidential debate meme

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
