2012 Presidential debates
Join the conversation as the candidates square off and watch it live here.

7:02 PM PT: Obama taking this opportunity to explain the benefits of Obamacare—make things more secure for people with insurance—and giving people without insurance access to it. And then Obama lowers the Romneycare=Obamacare boom.

7:03 PM PT: Romney's deliberately misstating the CBO study. It didn't say people will lose their insurance.

7:04 PM PT:
some of the tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas that mitt said don't exist. http://t.co/... #debate2012

7:07 PM PT: Mitt Romney says his it would take too long to describe his health care plan. That's another moment that should stick to him.

7:08 PM PT: To paraphrase Bill Clinton, it should be a flashing red light to people that Romney said it would take him too long to explain his health care plan.

7:09 PM PT:
Nope. Romney does not have a lengthy description of his plan and preexisting conditions are not covered.

7:13 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): New thread here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
