Romney dominated this debate and to see the vote on this site so close really makes me question if these people even watched....

Funny, I was wondering the same thing about you. How does getting rid of PBS, giving money to Exxon (while taking it away from solar & wind energy), and telling the "poor kids" to "just help each other out" (rather than giving them a hand up) constitute a win? Yes, let's give Exxon money because that's the way it has always been done. "Well, maybe it's time to change that." I'll leave you with one final thing to ponder: "At Exxon, we help Jesus walk on water."

Romney was prepped, slick and had the run of the supposed arbitrator but he still can't answer questions related to the fundamental details of his policies and proposals. All Obama needs to do is stay cool and keep pressing the questions around the 'exactly how are you going to do that, exactly?' point to his opponent and eventually those voters who are currently on the fence will realise that all Romney has on his side is misinformation, tired retoric and empty promises! PS> I'm English and not American and we thankfully aren't exposed to the biased media coverage of the election campaigning and consequently can quite easily see what an ass hat Romney is.

Our country, and the world, has been at the bleeding edge of the financial cliff for years. Obama has virtually not done anything at all to pull us back. I am for green power, i am TOTALLY against Big Oil, but what has Obama done even in that corner? hardly anything. I know if Obama gets another 4 yrs we will go over the cliff sooner - and it will be a hell of a hard fall (into hell). Romney will give us more time, but, will he save the world? No, he is not the savior. But we need more time to figure out how to get out of the mess and step back from the edge.

Maybe next debate Obuma will get prepped, instead of hangin with JZ, and the Hollywood a$$ kissers. Four years of failed promises and poor choices doesn't justify him getting four more years to fail...

It's the first debate. The only one that will be remembered is the last one unless someone stumbles badly.

Romney reminds me of "Tricky Dick",LOL He even grins like him! Not very trustworthy.

Romney showed that he is a thoughtful guy who has some ideas to make Americans proud of their country again! I remember how he turned around the olympics! Did a great job. I think he's worth a try. Has my vote!

Come on my fellow Americans, we have go to do a lot better than we are currently doing when it comes to analyzing and interpreting politics and information overall in this country. I am pro democracy, whether you democrat/republican. However when you speak about correcting the current American situation you have two ways of looking it. One way is good for all(most) and the other is good for a few. I can accept that most people will vote for the candidate that is going to most benefit their lifestyle. If you are rich vote the way that is going to help you maintain or grow your wealth, if you are middle class vote for the candidate that will sustain or grow that status. But, Americans please, please don't vote one way the other because you believe one way did not work well and you want to try the other one out now. It's gamble that you are to lose everytime.

How in insipid. Our current president has been admittedly trying to change our country from what it was. Are you trying to say that if we give him another chance that he will then succeed in changing the greatest country in the world. The very idea of wanting to change it is insane.

Are u kidding me. We can't afford to keep going down the same road we r on with Obama! I voted for him and really had hope but lets face it this economy is a disaster and Obama has not done anything well. We need a leader and Obama just isn't getting it don't. Insanity is when u keep doing the same thing over and over and expect different result. We have to do something different. U r ridiculous to suggest we vote for him again. We need a leader and Obama could not get it done. If u and I had his record in our job we would be fired!

Peter....you are exactly right..when things don't work you don't keep doing them over and over again...one eventually figures out that you have to change your approach...Obama doesn't understand this...
