Barack Obama showed up for his first presidential debate of 2012 last night in Hempstead, N.Y., to the delight of his many celebrity supporters on Twitter.
Unfortunately, this was his second presidential debate with Mitt Romney, who cleaned his clock the first time and wasn't exactly backing down Tuesday.
Here were some of the many celebrity Twitter reactions, in 140 characters or less:
Jesse Tyler Ferguson: That debate was better than a real housewives reunion.

Sarah Palin: We had a really good presidential debate tonight, and I hope every American is energized to get out and vote in three weeks. I also just want to give a quick thank you to everyone who supported Bristol & Mark. I know how much they appreciated the support. Now Bristol can head home just in time to enjoy Alaska's new fallen snow!
