On Saturday during a speech vice president Joe Biden referred to a crying baby in the audience by telling the crowd that the baby knows what kind of a future it has under a Romney administration.

Biden was addressing supporters in Florida when he made his remarks.

They eliminate help for middle-class families who want to send their kids to college like that beautiful baby over there. I don’t blame her for crying! I don’t blame that baby for crying! That baby, that baby, that baby knows what’s in store for him or her if Romney wins! I’m glad someone understands my speech!

If the baby was thinking about anything political, it would have been far more likely that it was more worried about the additional $5 trillion in debt that the Obama administration has piled up in less than four years that he/she will have to pay for in his or her lifetime.

That should be enough to make both adults and babies cry.

Denver is known as the Mile High city and as far as Al Gore is concerned, the high altitude, the thin air of the city may have been a contributing factor to President Obama’s poor debate performance agains Mitt Romney on Wednesday night.

I’m going to say something controversial here, Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. today – just a few hours before the debate started. Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust – I don’t know…

Talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel.  Yes, it can take time for some people to adjust to the altitude in Denver, but the president has been there many times before for speeches and has never shown any ill effects, until now apparently.

Then again when it comes to climate, we all know how accurate Gore has been in the past.

The fact is that Obama came into the debate totally unprepared and his performance was so stunningly bad, that even the liberal media couldn’t provide cover for their favorite son.

It wasn’t the altitude, but the attitude that sank Obama in Denver on Wednesday night.

Last night’s presidential debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama set a new record topping the previous record set during the Democratic National Convention thanks in part to Big Bird.

According to the Twitter Government team, Romney’s mention of Big Bird and  cutting subsidies to PBS generated 17,000 tweets per second while tweets about PBS clocked in at 10,000 tweets per second.

According to Twitter, the debates generated 10.3 million tweets, topping the 9.5 million tweets issues during the Democratic National Convention in early September.

I knew something was up when I saw my twitter feed appearing on my computer at lightning speed, making it hard to keep up with those that I follow.

The next debate will be between Paul Ryan and Joe Biden and should attract a significant amount of attention, but it will be hard pressed to top last night’s figures.

On Sunday’s State of the Union, CNN’s Candy Crowley had Obama senior campaign adviser David Axelrod squirming as he tried to explain how a second Obama administration would be different from the first.

Axelrod admitted that Obama isn’t happy with the economic results of the president’s first term, but they were making progress and that the country couldn’t afford to return to the policies of the past.

After Axelrod listed some of the things Obama would do in a second term, Crowley said that they weren’t specific and that they were really goals. She also added that none of the proposals that Axelrod mentioned have passed, in some cases after having been debated for two years.   Axelrod also failed to deliver when Crowley asked if their was going to be something new in  a second Obama term or will it be a “stay the course” administration, and replied with the same proposals that he had previously mentioned, which didn’t contain anything new as Crowley had suspected.
