Is Mitt Romney being set up as the new Ronald Reagan?

Among the things that can be taken away from last night's debate is the fact - it looked an awful lot like Reagan debating Carter in 1980 - and we all know how that worked out for America. How can President Obama avoid becoming the next Jimmy Carter?

The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Brevirostratously Ugly!

The Good! *Carleton College* Carleton College - a small college in Minnesota - passed a campus-wide resolution earlier this week - opposing Minnesota's proposed constitutional amendment banning same-sex marraige. The resolution states that the amendment would "undermine and impede the College's efforts to recruit and retain the very best students, faculty and staff members." Our nation's colleges and universities should places of respect and safety for all students - regardless of their sexual orientations. Members of the LGBT community are just as hard-working, intelligent and driven as anyone else. Kudos to Carleton for standing up to the bigotry and ignorance that is trying to take over the state of Minnesota.

Geeky Sounds - Ever wonder what Earth sounds like???

Tune in and hear the sound of planet Earth "singing" in space - courtesy of NASA who's calling it the clearest recording ever made of "chorus" - which is the audio version of the radio signals that are emitted by plasma waves that are part of Earth's Van Allen radiation belts.

Big Picture Debate Panel - Obama failed at calling out Romney as an oligarch!

Brian Darling, The Heritage Foundation & RIchard Fowler, Progressive Strategist & Andrew Langer, Institute for Liberty all join Thom Hartmann. Romney was declared the unofficial winner of last night's debate - but he kept telling one big fat lie after another. Does misleading America and lying for 90 minutes straight really make you a winner? And where was Moderate Mitt just a few weeks ago? We'll ask tonight's Politics Panel.

Hey Media - How can Romney lie constantly & then be declared the winner?

Romney lied about his own tax plan - saying that it's not a $5 trillion tax cut, despite independent analysis of his plan saying it is. He lied about Obamacare - repeating the same debunked myth that the President cut over $700 billion from Medicare. He lied about the President's Wall Street reform law - saying it designates five banks as too big to fail and deserving of blank check bailouts. There is no such provision in the law. And he even flirted with the idea of death panels in Obamacare! But wait - there's more lies!

Full Show 10/4/12: Obama: The (Not So) Great Debater

Thom discusses last night's presidential debate with our "Big Picture Politics Panel," and takes your live calls in the debut of "Your Take, My Take Live." In tonight's "Daily Take" Thom warns President Obama about becoming the next Jimmy Carter.

What the media TELLS you about the debate WILL have a bigger impact then the debate

Here's a little tip before you watch the debate tonight - and before you watch the corporate media's reaction to the debate tonight. What you see in the debate tonight will have little influence on what you take away from the debate. But what the media TELLS you that you saw in the debate WILL have a huge effect. A new study out of Ohio State University shows that viewers of Presidential debates are more affected by the frame in which the media puts the debates than we are by the actual performance or words of the debaters themselves. To figure out how this works, researchers showed young Americans clips from the 2004 and 2008 Presidential debates. The viewers were then given media coverage of the debates to read. One group was given coverage focused strictly on policy - like why each candidate took the position they took - what effect those policies would have on the nation, and so on - the important stuff we as Americans should be getting from the debates. The other group of viewers was given media coverage that framed the debate as a sporting event - which candidate won, who appealed better to what bloc of voters, and so on - the political horserace stuff. After all that - the debate viewers were then asked to describe the debate as if they were telling a friend what happened.

Earth's credit card has been maxed out!

If Earth's resources were a credit card, we have already maxed out our entire allocation for this year. The think thank Global Footprint Network announced that August 19th was “Earth Overshoot Day,” meaning that all the resources we use after that day exceed what our planet can produce in a single year.
