Tonight, Jim Lehrer will present the first presidential debate of the 2012 general election. A full 50% of the debate is dedicated to economic issues, including, we hope, American manufacturing, trade and U.S. dealings with China.
Yesterday, on ManufactureThis, we filled you in on the questions the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) hopes Lehrer will ask the two candidates. Today, we wanted to provide you with some debate-watching activities.
For those who might choose to have a "beverage" or two while watching the debate, we suggest a drinking game, targeted solely on the economic portion of the debate. Download a printable version here.
And for the non-drinkers or for children who want to play along with their parents, a Bingo game. Printable version here.
If you're looking for some activities during the non-economic portion of the debate, the National Journal has some as well.
