Why didn't Obama bring up the 47% issue? Saving it for the final debate? Obama seemed to want to rest on his laurels...but economy still in rough shape!

I wanted it to be the President, but unfortunately he didn't exactly shine last night. I do believe he might have something up his sleeve for the next 2 debates though... perhaps that 47%... you know... the people Romney snubbed his nose at... yeh, we really want a President who thinks so little of us!

It's a simple question; not who are you voting for. You can vote for Ron Paul and still answer the question about the debate.

Mitt Romney is standing by his words from a private fundraiser that were caught on videotape. In the video, which was obtained by the liberal magazine Mother Jones, Romney says 47 percent of the country pay no income tax and are therefore predisposed to vote for President Obama....

He did not say he did not care about them he only said he would not get their vote... You people really need to get your news from somewhere other than NBC,CBS or ABC.....

This was the most devastating beating any candidate has ever taken in a Presidential debate. According to CNN 67% of their viewers thought Romney won. Since 1980, when they first started polling audiences, the highest number they have ever recorded was 60%. To shamelessly plagiarize a comment I heard today.."Romney came ready to kick butt and chew bubblegum. Unfortunately for Obama, Romney was out of bubblegum."

Mitt Romney was the Top Runner, through the Debate. He was excellent with all his come back information. Very respectful to the President.
Really kept his cool... He personality really showed through, a real upbeat mood.. I do believe that he has our USA in his best interest and truly wants to make things right.. Getting People back to work is his number one priority. I truly believe he will do his very best to make things right... Everyone that was watching and listening to the
Debate, KNOWS WHO TO VOTE FOR ON ELECTION DAY!!!! FOR PRESIDENT, MITT ROMNEY

Ron Paul is a non-interventionist, which admittedly sounds great, however Marxism is on the rise, and letting the whole world go communist is a recipe for disaster. Marxism seeks to take over the world.

Unfortunately, the moderator did not ask for some fact checks. Romney was filled with untruths. The man has no backbone. He bends with whatever direction the wind is blowing. He just wants to be president. Obama was way to kind to him in the debate!

Though Obama could not play the card as to why it was hard to work with Congress, bigotry played a role. Some of our congressional representatives decided they would not work with him from day 1 regardless if they agreed with him or not. They just wanted him to look bad. He was the wrong color to be president!

Romney will be a liberal, moderate or far right Republican. Anything to be president!

Using Obamacare was pejorative, even though Obama said it was OK.

The high ranking in education in Romney's state is directly related to wealth. Massachusetts is one of our wealthiest states. On the other side of the spectrum, the poorest states have the worst schools based on student achievement. Therefore, Romney using his achievement in education as evidence of his leadership needs to be examined in this context.

Romney wants to put women back into the dark ages and his snide comment during the Republican Convention that he was not interested in the oceans' rising, illustrates his anti-science stand. Obama has done a lot to increase funding for STEM research. Supporting alternative energy is tantamount to addressing climate change. More energy efficient vehicles is also supported by Obama.

American people have a choice, but too many are not informed enough. Too many think that climate change is not happening and are buying Romney's false statements. For example, his health plan (if he has one) will not ensure that people with preexisting conditions will receive coverage.

One survey shows people thinking it was Romney who took down Osama Bin Laden!

Hopefully, Obama will be more aggressive in the next debate, not that it will change the pro Romney folks, but it will make the more liberal-moderates a lot happier!
