Tonight, the first of three televised presidential debates will originate from Denver, where the focus will be on domestic policy, including the current financial crisis.
Here at Fix the Debt, it's the moment we've been waiting for. You see, our bipartisan policy experts are a fun bunch of folks. No really, they are. And they love a good debate.
So, between analyzing the CBO’s updated budget and economic outlook and assessing the implications of a possible credit downgrade, they’ve managed to compile a pretty clever Debate Watch Party Toolkit complete with exceptional questions we hope will be asked of each candidate and a few fun ideas for organizing a Debate Watch Party, including how to emcee a shameless fiscal adaptation of tic-tac-toe to track which candidate - President Barack Obama or Governor Mitt Romney - is most engaged in the national discussion about the debt.
If you’re not up to hosting a debate party on a school night, we understand – just don’t watch the debate alone. Visit www.meetup.com/debatewatch to find a Debate Watch Party in your area or join us at @fixthedebt on Twitter, where we’ll be live fact-checking the debate online.
Wherever you watch tonight, have a great time, chat up everyone you can about the debt and get other folks to sign the Citizen’s Petition to Fix the Debt. And please send us a pic or two of your Debate Watch Party to email@example.com!
