Who Won Presidential Debate: Analysis of Obama Romney Debate From an Angry Liberal

On Wednesday night, President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney will go at it in their first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign.

The two will be discussing domestic policy issues as Jim Lehrer moderates the discussion from the University of Denver. It is set to begin at 9pm EST. 

This debate has huge implications for Romney, seeing as how his domestic policy is seen by many as a prescription to strenthen the most fortunate members of society at the expense of the middle and lower class. 

As for President Obama, 4 years of experience in office and broad support from the middle and lower classes that Romney has seemed to shun gives him a head start going into the debate. How will the debate go? Who will win? 

Stay tuned for the angriest coverage of every ridiculous moment from one of the most fed up liberals you'll ever meet. If I go too long without updating, it's safe to say I've hurled my TV out the window in disgust. 

PolicyMic will be covering the presidential debate live. For live updates, bookmark and refresh this page.

UPDATE 10:18

UH OH!!!  Did Romney just bring GOD in?  Not only that, he said we're all children of the same GOD...OH GOD!!!  I need another drink...

UPDATE 10:16

Uh oh...Romney is quoting the constitution...someone is deflecting...

UPDATE 10:13

Hmm who's winning?  I know I'm a liberal hippy, but I still think Obama is winning because people don't realize that his policies will work if given the time to.  Does he sound articulate tonight?  Hell no...

UPDATE 10:04

Nothing like a good whiskey smash to wash Romney's garbage down with!

 

UPDATE 10:03

Romney needs to stop mentioning Medicare... his plan has been well documented to gut it in a short amount of time...

UPDATE 10:01

OOOOH OBAMA BI*CH SLAPS LEHRER...LEHRER COMES BACK WITH A JAB!!!! What happened to Romney?

UPDATE 9:59

Gee Mitt, isn't it possible that healthcare got more expensive because scumbag insurance companies raised the rates with not mercy when Obama Care was enacted?

UPDATE 9:57

How does Mitt Romney get away with saying that he wants to put money back into Medicare?

UPDATE 9:55

Wait...economic regulation wasn't done correctly?  Could that be because the Republican party blocked every possible solution that the Democrats came up with???

UDPATE 9:53

Big surprise, the crowd here at the Intercontinental Hotel in the FINANCIAL DISTRICT is on Mitt Romney's side...

UPDATE 9:51

BAIN CAPITAL!!!!
 

UPDATE 9:49

Let's talk about the real issues here people...Obama's tie is way snazzier than Romney's...

UPDATE 9:48

Why does Romney smile like he has just had a lobotomy?  #oneflewoverthecuckoosnest

UPDATE 9:46

Is it just me, or does Obama give far more details on how things will work on Romney's budget plan than Romney does?  #noclue

UPDATE 9:42

IS HE REALLY SAYING THAT HE WON'T GUT MEDICARE????

UPDATE 9:20

Obama slams Romney with not being able to lower the deficit without burdening the middle class...if only the middle class knew that...

UPDATE 9:17

Right, Romney won't increase the deficit, he'll leave the upkeep of that to the rest of us...

UPDATE 9:16

Romney looks like there are skittles jiggling inside his head while Obama speaks...he's clueless

UPDATE 9:08PM  Romney is giving NO details on how he'll do that...typical

 

UPDATE 9:06PM Looks like Romney took his Hispanic face paint off now that he's back in the states...good move

UPDATE 9:04  Stop WASTING TIME WITH YOUR DAMNED ANNIVERSARY!!!  THIS IS THE DEBATE AND YOU HAVE TO DESTROY THIS GUY

UPDATE 9:03 Look how fake those smiles were...

UPDATE 8:52

I'm LIVE blogging the debate from the most pretentious spot I could find...the bar at Boston's Intercontinental Hotel!!!  I am literally the sole representative of the 99%...

UPDATE 4:15PM How long do you think it will take Mitt to perform the question pivot to avoid answering something he's clueless on?

UPDATE - 2:02PM on 10/3

I bet we see this face every 5 seconds tonight...

UPDATE - 1:34PM on 10/3

How do you think the polls will be affected if Romney does well in the debate?  I think his policy speaks for itself, regardless of what kind of happy face he puts on it...

 

UPDATE 7:09pm 10/2 I can't wait to hear all the ridiculous things Mitt Romney says tomorrow, and tear him apart for them! Join me for a rockin good time as I tweet from a debate party where I'll have the input of the entire crowd.
