(Washington, D.C.) The televised live bipartisan debate between President Obama and members of Congress was generally dubbed a "publicity stunt" by the media as well as political scholars, who are convinced that neither side was swayed.

"Only the infirm or unemployed could have possibly sat home and watched it all," said Douglas Brinkley, a professor Rice University.

Pugnacious White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel immediately fired back at Brinkley:

"Based on current unemployment records and those denied health care due to preexisting conditions, we estimate that more Americans were able to watch this discussion than the final episode of "Friends". That's what I call getting word out. I don't know what the egghead calls it."
