Channel 7 is carrying the Lion's game not the debate and I'm not sure but I thought I heard that Channel 2 will be carrying the baseball game.

You are correct, Donna - thanks! Those stations have been taken out of the "where to watch" list, accordingly.
Lee Jacobsen October 22, 2012 at 03:10 PM
Baseball? Who cares? The Tigers will play the winners anyway.... Football? The Lions only score during the 4th quarter anyway, so no sense turning in before then. That leaves the debates. One TV near the fridge with NBC, so to keep the time to get snacks minimal as NBC always drives one away, another TV in the family room, turned to CNN , as they are fairly neutral, and then, for comedy playback and fun, tape Fox, as they always point out Obama's best debate antics. Of course, I am an undecided voter, and I never tell fibs......should be interesting how Obama explains away the 'optimal' issues.....and the loss of all the intelligence that could have been gained by not bragging about Obama being killed , waiting a week, who knows?, we could have gotten them all.........

Some of us have already voted Lee and this debate won't make a bit of difference.
Lee Jacobsen October 22, 2012 at 10:50 PM
Donna...exactly right, but the majority of folk still need to vote, and , unlikely as it may seem, there still might be a few undecided voters out there. As a 'decided' voter, this debate, like in your case, already cast, and probably in the case of 90% of all voters who have made up their minds, this debate won't matter much to me either except as reaffirmation that the right choice will be made in Nov. It is still history, and still interesting, to watch. At this point, it is Romney's to lose. If Romney does not utter a major gaffe, it's all but over. He may even win Michigan. My opinion of course.
Maureen Pawelek October 23, 2012 at 12:06 AM
Lee, I'm not sure which part of your comment you should be more embarrassed about...the part where you admit to watching Fox News, or the part where you say you're undecided. Admitting to being undecided in this election is admitting you have no idea what's going on. The choice couldn't be more stark. If you can't decide on something this clear, no debate in the world is going to help you. Oh...and it wasn't Obama that was killed....it was Osama. Maybe that's where your confusion is coming in.
Lee Jacobsen October 23, 2012 at 03:31 AM
Maureen, i stand corrected, it was Osama that was killed, of course, Obama will be the victim in Nov, but that, like most of my post, went over your head with respect to obvious 'bias' on my part on poking fun at folk who are 'undecided'. Of course I am decided, and it is obvious in my comments. Saying I am 'undecided' , and never tell 'fibs' in a political format forum is screaming to the audience that the opposite is true, I am astounded that you thought I was serious. Everyone knows that the Lions will win the Superbowl, but only in the 4th quarter. By the way, Romney won the debate economically, and looked like a president should. He wins.
Maureen Pawelek October 23, 2012 at 06:19 PM
Wow, Lee...you really thought I believed you were undecided? Hilarious. I just knew you'd come clean if I forced you to. Believe me...I know a phony when I see one. That's why I wouldn't vote for Romney OR Ryan. But thanks for playing!
Lee Jacobsen October 23, 2012 at 09:02 PM
Maureen, I see a poor record for 4 years of 'fluff', and vote accordingly, time for a proven businessman like Romney to take the reins and ride us out of this economic mess!!

Obama has been an economic disaster the last four years, and this Benghazi mess just sickens me the more I learn... I think too much of the nation has forgotten about these four murdered American's... Obama is ignoring the issue, hiding behind the "ongoing investigation" mantra... It's a load of dung... He's swept it under the rug, and hopes to keep it there until after the election... I want the truth to come out now... Every voter needs to read this excellent article... Very well worth your time... http://spectator.org/archives/2012/11/01/benghazi-obamas-core-deceit/ These aren't bad either... http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/50657 http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/10/25/CBS-Busts-Obama--and-Itself-Hidden-60-Minutes-Clip-Proves-White-House-Lied-About-Benghazi It's just not about jobs and the economy... It's about trust, honesty, and credibility at the top... Romney/Ryan 2012
Colter95 November 02, 2012 at 03:36 PM
When you read these articles, and do other research, really the only viable candidate is Romney... A vote for Obama is a vote for continued failures at home and abroad... http://www.factcheck.org/2012/06/obamas-outsourcer-overreach/ http://obamalies.net/list-of-obamas-failures http://blog.heritage.org/2012/10/18/president-obamas-taxpayer-backed-green-energy-failures/ http://lacrossetribune.com/news/opinion/patti-schmidt-list-of-obama-s-failures-is-long/article_7a139146-fec2-11e1-8e81-0019bb2963f4.html http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/08/obamas-foreign-policy-failures-catalogued.php http://www.facebook.com/notes/republican-security-council/the-top-10-obama-flip-flops-by-ari-fleischer/171275079638338 http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/nilegardiner/100083104/the-u-turn-president-barack-obama-top-ten-flip-flops/ Romney/Ryan 2012

Just the thought of the White House watching on TV, in real time, hearing the pleas for help, and ignoring or hitting the 'deny' button each time a plea was made, causing the deaths of those Americans, is reason enough to toss Obama and his cronies out and get someone who can make decisions, not just 'teleprompt' bland excuses after the fact. The Seals even had the targets lasertagged, still no response from the White House. Help was 30 minutes away, the White House acted like confused squirrels crossing the road. After 7 hours, other help arrived , and our Ambassador was still alive, but later died. Obama's inaction killed our Folk, time for Obama to go and let a grownup sit in the White House who knows how to lead, to make decisions, that will save Americans, not kill them.
