“The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”

—Winston Churchill

Well, the time is almost here where we can finally have our say, but first we have to endure the debates.  Here are the dates for the two Obama / Romney Presidential debates and the one Biden / Ryan Vice-Presidential debate.  Also included here are the topics to be discussed and who will be moderating.

I’m going to pay special attention to the questions posed to Obama and the questions posed to Romney.  My guess is that the Left media will be a lot softer on Obama, and I hope I’m wrong here.  As we all know, when the debates are over, slander will become the tool of the loser.  Anyway, let the games (and the finger-pointing) begin…
