Once upon a time, there was a game show called To Tell The Truth, which had a memorable ending of every episode - "Will the real ______ please stand up?" You can see an episode here.
But why this title? Well, now that the first presidential debate is over (and I learned very little), I wonder who the real Mitt Romney is, or who the real Barack Obama is. I harbor both fears and hopes about both, and I'm sure all of you have your own notions about the real character behind these men.
So, let's have a long-delayed Deep Thinkers Meetup about this topic. I will try to keep it from devolving into an argument about who will win. Is Romney as conservative as he claimed in the primaries? Will the true liberal in Obama emerge once he's freed of another election?
Let's discuss it. I hope you all can make it. We're still on the west side, but trying a new venue near LAX - the IHOP just north of the airport, which has a few private rooms that we can use.
Please keep your comments brief and civil. Remember, we can disagree without being disagreeable.
