About This File

This week's Thursday File updates the Obama Good elections DA. It includes extensive uniqueness work both ways from the last few days that takes into account the news of the week (Romney's 47% gaffe, Obama's surge in several swing states). In addition to general uniqueness, I cut cards on the race in some of the biggest swing states. Since most of you probably already know what impact scenario you are reading, I decided to focus more on the link debate and answering some common impact turns. The link turn shield includes a new card from Orski (a common 1NC link author) from this week. The impact turn cards are originally researched answers to impact turns that many teams have been running.


Aside from the elections debate, I included updated answers to many agenda DAs teams could run. As an added bonus, I included some new impact cards, including the best impact to warming (in terms of being high-quality and short) since Tickell, and some economy updates.


Good luck at Greenhill or wherever you are debating this weekend!
