The first debate is over.  Obama lost on style. Romney lost on the facts.  Who won?  The unemployment rate fell to 7.8%. The Right Wing is going crazy accusing the BLS of cooking the books. What do you think?

Also, below is a list of things we can expect NOT to hear mentioned in any of the Presidential Debates:

  1. Immediate deficit reduction will reverse the econoic recovery.
  2. Taxes are at their lowest level in more than half a century
  3. Neither the status quo or a voucher system will protect Medicare's future.
  4. Our military is hugely expensive and yet poorly suited to address the threats we face today
  5. The US education system that built this country the 20th century is failing the current generatoin

The list above was compiled by National Priorities Project. What CAN we expect to hear knowing that the next three debates cannot possibly be limited to the national debt and Big Bird. What else belongs on the list below?
