Watching Presidential Debates at Home Is SO 2008

Whether you swing blue, red, or are still making up your mind, you can stop by 5th Quarter Pizza tonight--or several other places along the Peninsula--to watch the first of three presidential debates.

Join Patch for a presidential debate viewing party on Wednesday, Oct. 3, at 5:30 p.m. at 5th Quarter Pizza at 976 Woodside Road. 

Domestic policy will be the focus of the first presidential debate—Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney will have two more later in October—and Patch wants to know what issues are important to small business owners and local community members.

All—Republicans, Democrats, independents and anyone on any end of the political spectrum—are invited. Those interested in attending should RSVP by emailing Stacie Chan at stacie@patch.com.

You also can RSVP, and invite your friends to come along, on our Facebook event announcement.

While electing a president is serious business, there will be some fun, too. Patch will have pizza, drinks and Patch swag to give out. 

So come out and join us on Wednesday, Oct. 3, at 5:30 p.m. at 5th Quarter Pizza at 976 Woodside Road.

It is safer to watch at home because you don't have to talk to people who think re-electing a guy who has created more debt and poverty than any President in history is great. Only 45 million Americans are living below the poverty line-that includes women, African Americans, gays and yes-even caucasions so Obama is at least equal opportunity about how many people he is making poor. Obama is the President of an American Society not destined for greatness but dependency that becomes an unhealthy addiction. America as a country cannot force the ones who do work to continue to pay higher taxes for the growing number of people who don't work. Obama can't buy a phone for everyone because he isn't paying for it-it is us-"We the people". It astounds me how many people still want to vote for Obama under the guise that it was sooo screwed up that nobody could fix it. Well nobody who is Anti-Business, Anti-Oil, Anti-Capitalist, Anti-American could fix it but any other American who believes in upholding the Constitution and our Freedoms could. Please send blessings and prayers to the families of our US Ambassador in Libya and others who died in what the President of Libya called a "Terrorist Act, that had NOTHING to do with a video and was planned for the 9-11 Anniversary". Also pray for the hundreds of Mexican Citizens who died because of Fast and Furious-Obama's policies are killing innocent people in Mexico as well as our Border Patrol Agents. A Vote for Obama is killing US!
