Anyone know if the live Presidential debates will be shown on any UK networks?

it wil be little more than a catchphrase competition, it's also a farce as libertarian candidate Gary Johnson isn't involved.

The Republican debate is usually more entertaining than the Presidential debate. One of the comedy highlights of the year was Rick Perry forgetting the third government agency. And Ron Paul subsequently burying him.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uvmKnFY4uk <---- Witness a career ending under two minutes.

''Commerce, Education.......... and errrrr... the errmm.... what's the third one let's see.''

Ron Paul: ''There's five.''
Rick Perry: ''Oh there's five''
Ron Paul: ''EPA?''
Rick Perry: ''EPA, there you go!''
Conductor: ''Seriously? Is EPA the one you were talking about?
Rick Perry: ''No sir.''
Rick Perry: ''Education.......... err.....''
Ron Paul: ''Commerce?''
Rick Perry: ''Commerce''


Now he only remembers one! Which is education (irony).

Amazingly it continues like this... until he gives up and says ''oops.''


Rick Perry should do stand-up not run for President.

If the Republicans had more than half a braincell between them, they'd be dangerous.

At times it looks like an actual debate

EDIT: Take from a Tweet- PBS subsidy is $444m. Federal budget is $3.5 trillion. PBS is 0.01% of the budget.....

Romney's grabbing my attention a lot more than Obama at the moment.

[EDIT]

Regardless of what's being said that is.

I hope so, he's getting trounced even if Romney is talking pish.

It's really an easy choice for me in November. Obama, while disappointing on many levels, does not inspire the same worry as Romney. Basically the same feeling I experienced during the Dubya years. I'll take my chances with another four years of Obama.

Romney was disappointingly articulate.

Obama infuriatingly clunky. Seemed to struggle to phrase statements, recall scripted points and tended to ramble.

I know little about the inner workings of Yankdom and even less about how Americans perceive the workings. Going by my impressions of presentation in comparison to the campaign in general it'll be easier to spin a win for Romney. Neither man impressed me though.

It's staggering to me that Romney is still in with a shot. In a nation where he has a shot I'd wager he came across well. Better than Obama anyway. Bizarre.

Obama was obviously under prepared, possibly lulled into a false sense of how bad Romney was expected to be. I doubt he will make the same mistakes at the next debate.

Romney has been practising this for a while, and it showed, he was smooth - possibly too smooth? Obama was calm, it reminded me of how you deal with a bully - let them bluster and shout and put their foot in it - and while that usually does work in real life, on a televised debate where first impressions count it's not the best idea and can come over as weak.

The fact checkers have already been out, and as per, have found Romney was spouting crap, flip flopping on issues (I'll give him that, the man can change position at light speed), and when you actually listen back to what he said - he still gave no specifics and gave non answers to many questions. He will most likely have convinced his base, but I'm not sure how convincing he will have been with 'independents' or the truly undecided.

Romney will need to start changing the polls now, if he doesn't and Obama maintains his slight lead over the next few weeks Romney is dead in the water.

Obama is going to dominate the fuck out of the next debate.
