Ok
It appears we have three possibilities.

It's a cheat sheet, a blank paper he brought, or a provided sheet.

I think that if the first can be proven, not presumed, then Romney should catch hell. that does not however, rule out the other 2 possibilities. You cannot make conclusive statement from this. since the possibility exists the most useful thing is to contact the Commission to watch for this.
or possiblity of number 4 it was not paper at all.

Obama lost. He was no prepared and thought he could coast to a easy win. No way in hell does obama come out in the 2nd debate looking so inept.

These excuses do him no favors though.
Basically this. The best thing for Obama and the Dems to do is say, "OK, we got whupped and weren't expecting it. How can we turn the tables next time?"

I think Obama can get away with this happening once. If he gets beat this bad next time, though, it will be time to worry.

It was Obama who failed, maybe he is just a honest person and cant keep his head up say "4 more years and I will increase jobs blah blah blah"...He had his 4 years and did jack already. A lier could do that and smile though [see: Bush]. I think what we really have is a large Bureaucracy behind the scene that hampers any President in office, Bush or Obama it doesn't matter, the bullshit is still the same and for that reason.

He showed no outward signs of illness... unless his newly acquired habit of snorting crack cocaine is getting the better of him.
Newb. You smoke crack cocaine not snort it. You snort regular cocaine.

Edit: And him showing no outward sign of illness proves that it must have been a cheat sheet? Don't you think thats reaching pretty darn far?

looking at this risk vs reward...

I don't think Romney would risk getting caught with a cheat sheet.

The item many believe to be a cheat sheet was a hankie. Romney brought it to give to Obama so he could dry his eyes after Romney gave him an ass whupping. Who said Romney has no compassion.

Personally I don't see it but if there was a liberal version of Drudge they would have run with it and it would be diseminated through all the "liberal media"

This is ridiculous. Its a hankerchief, for you know being under the hot lights for 90 minutes. And next time OP try a real news source, not some Democrat forum who's sister thinks of herself as the next Bob Woodward.

The President got his ass handed to him on a platter. Simple as that.

Well it looked like things were going well for Romney. I guess it's just too bad that he can't interrupt the news flow to stop the job numbers.

it's against the rules you're not allowed to bring notes to the debate shall I fetch the rules for you ?
I think a more fundamental rule of debate is to stick to time constraints. These idiots can't be bothered with rules - that's how they got to be where they are.

So no one who runs the debate nor Obama called out the cheat sheet but some smart viewers did? possibly but improbable. But i am sure the same americans who are responsible for 9/11 being an inside job helped Romney get the cheatsheet past the everyone but the camera.
