New York Live Blog Set for Presidential Debate; Join Us

Patch sites across the state will join up for one massive live discussion during the second presidential debate, this time happening on New York soil.

New York, here's your chance. As a state we're overlooked by the campaigns unless they are looking to fill up their war chests. It's a given that the Democrat will win here, so candidates don't need to spend their time and campaign cash stumping on the Empire State.

But perhaps one of the biggest campaign events of the season, the second presidential debate, will happen Tuesday on New York soil. So let's come out in force for the event.

Patch's 75 sites in the state, spread throughout Long Island, the Hudson Valley, Queens and Brooklyn, will host a single live blog on Tuesday for all of our readers to join and chat with one another about the occasion. We've seen some incredible conversations in past live blogs, and want to go even bigger this time.

To participate, visit your local Patch on your computers starting at 8:30 p.m., and you'll see our Live Blog post front-and-center. If you've never joined a live blog, it's easy. Just follow along and add your comments in the box. It's a lot of fun.

Also, if you use Twitter and will be tweeting during the debate, add the #NYPatch hashtag and we'll pull those tweets right into our live blog.

Since the debate is happening at Long Island's Hofstra University, in Hempstead, New York, we're going to have a lot of great coverage of what's happening on the ground here. The live blog will keep followers up to date on all of those stories as they evolve.

If you want a reminder, you can RSVP to this Facebook event here.

We can't wait.

Romney stands there with a stupid smirk on his face. He doesn't have a clue.

I will vote for Romney because I beleive he can do a better job, he believe in God and has a good heart. He serve the people all the time. He is honest, concern with our country and sincere. He is the best!!!!

You madam, need a grammar lesson.

I love this comment from Paul Begala, admittedly biased, but it is spot on and funny. "And while President Obama thrashed Mitt Romney on everything from Planned Parenthood funding to tax breaks for billionaires, Romney looked more awkward than the Queen in a cow chip tossing contest"

Forget the fact that I've sent more jobs overseas than i created here. Don't worry about my tex returns or the off shore bank accounts I hide my money in. Never mind the fact that I want to cut educational programs to arm potential terrorists posing as Syrian rebels in their civil war. Don't even mention the fact that i don't care about 47% of you pauper heathens that don't want to work! And don't even get me started on how I treat my dog! LIBYA! LIBYA! LIBYA!
