its five weeks until the election and Romney's big plan is NEVERMIND how could Romney have won this debate if he never gave us any hard facts he just said I will go this I will do that HOW!? At least Obama gave us a website with info and numbers so we can look it up and not just trust that he is right but actually have proof that he is. People who are voting for Romney must have a whole lot of trust because all Romney did was say that his glorious plan somehow solved all these problems but they didn't add up!!! Where's the proof Romney I can't just trust you??? Another thing that I noticed that doesn't really mean anything is that Romney kept interrupting the host and arguing with him and for those people who are not very smart (32% of American adults are only educated to a fifth grade level) only notice the little things like when Romney is rude to the host or the faces be makes and the way he approaches there differences

Romney has the advantage, because of all the things going wrong in our society. If Romney wins all of those problems won't go away and I promise you that things will not get any better. Poor people will continue to be poor and rich people will continue to be rich. The Jews and the Palestinians will continue to fight and the world economy will continue it's downward spiral. Presidents don't create jobs, they spend most of their time on foreign affairs and Romney will have us back at war with somebody and I bet none of his son's will be on the front lines.

It is frustrating to hear people talk about how Obama is the better candidate when they have nothing to back it up. Everyone I know that supports the current president is uneducated and knows very little about politics. I follow all the topics closely, and Romney is clearly the better of the two.

I DON'T KNOW HOW ANYONE CAN SAY ROMNEY WON, HE SEAMED TO GO AROUND IN CIRCLES. PRESIDENT OBAMA ON THE OTHER HAND LIKES TO GIVE US DETAILS WHICH WAS HARD TO DO WITH THE TIME GIVEN, TRULY OBAMA WON THAT DEBATE,WAKE UP PEOPLE WITH THE REPS IN CONGRESS THEY BLOCKED A LOT OF HIS PLANS, WE NEED TO GET THE CONGRESS BACK IN THE HANDS OF THE DEMOCRATS.THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WHO VOTE FOR OBAMA ARE POOR OR MIDDLE CLASS AND PROBABLY DIDN'T WATCH THE DEBATE, WHICH WOULD NOT OF CHANGE THERE MINDS ANYWAY. 4 MORE YEARS, OBAMA WILL WIN THE ELECTION NO MATTER HOW MUCH CRAP THE REPUBLICANS THROW AT HIM

Rommney won because obama policies have failed look at europe and spain. If socialism is so great why did the soviet union fall. I want to make my own path in life and believe you can succed on your own how come so many people left europe to come to america for opurtunity and freedom. Obama is a liar he had nothing to defend in his professor attitude. America offers opportunity for all who are wiling to work. Not goverment and control like china and cuba.

A lot of comments that I am reading are a bit shocking. For example, Romney was high enerygy, like a firecracker. Then Obama was tired, blah, blah. It was a debate. He probably had a 2 hour massage the day before to relax. And he is a robot. Of course he has high energy. Come on. Look at the big picture. ROMNEY or OBAMA. Obama is the ONLY one that will direct our country in the right direction for the better and well being of a whole.

Did you remeber what Romney said about medicare and young people? He danced around the question and topic. No clear answer but, does not agree with social security. Why? Because he has 40 millon dollars. hmmmmmmmm. I'm young and need healt inc. Do you?

You really thought Romney had an upper hand? The 36 states on his side are uneducated and brainwashed. Obama spoke his debate in grace. Look at the big picture people and WAKE UP.
