YES! For now, but there are 27 days left until election.
NO! There are two debates left and plenty of time.

A series of debates, by only two individuals, can be viewed as the opening 1/3 of a single debate. I see President Obama as well positioned to strongly move thru the next two parts of this debate. Many of the issues he would rather not discuss in depth were brought up with only minimal or no outward reaction by the President other than a short, clear statement of his position. He can now move on to issues that are the meat and potatoes(my age hint) of his re election. Health care, continuing and speeding up job creation gains, regulating wall street back to their specific areas of finance- rather than allowing them to use deposited monies as collateral for the profit of the financial institution thru speculation. Ending war on drugs and wars on people around the globe. I fail to understand all of the declarations of victory for a debater who used at least 26 false statements in his allotted time. That's more than a lie every two minutes his lips were moving. VICTORY??????? Come on folks. Those pundits and networks and news organizations want to drag this money train out as far as possible. They do care if they harm the democratic processes of our country, as long as they are making a PROFIT! This profit,used as motivation for progress, must be seen for what it is and was. It WAS the greatest growth mechanism ever seen on this planet. It is NOW consuming the very bounty this earth has provided, so rapidly and unwisely in the name of PROFIT; without concern for the fact that this planet has finite limits-FOR SURE!
These oligarchs in charge, are unable to comprehend that human beings are capable of progressing without cut throat competition for money. They do not understand love and compassion for others. How did we put them in charge?

More and more we're aware of corporate domination of our government, lack of good jobs, higher consumer prices and threats to the social safety net that effect us directly. I think in the end this will be more important than the debates. No matter how they spin it..these are the issues the average person on the street cares about.

Let's keep spreading the word that the people can beat the money and get out the vote. Obama in a second term has nothing to lose by pushing a more progressive agenda. Just as important, vote more liberals into the House and Senate. I think we're all sick of the do-nothing congress.

Some people vote for the most handsome and popular man, heard this on radio a few months ago, and maybe women are swooning over Romney now and especially since they think he will not stand in their way on abortion.

As far as health care, so many people have had employer-provided health insurance and have never had to go out and purchase their own and they don't want to start now.

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."

From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
