Presidential Debate: Who Won the Obama-Romney Rematch?

by at . Comments

After a game-changing first encounter October 3, we were quite anxious to see how the second presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney would play out.

Who do you think won the rematch tonight?

Obama and Romney

Was this the event Obama needed to right the ship after Romney easily won their first meeting and shifted the dynamic of the race? Or did the challenger keep him on the ropes?

What was the most meaningful exchange? Did tonight's town hall style showdown at Hofstra University on Long Island alter or reinforce your opinion of either candidate?

WHAT Moron would ever punch the hole in their ballot for O, if they are up on the news. The DERAILING of this country under Obama's policies. He's actually worse than Carter. HE HAST TO GO. Do yourselves ALL a favor and rent 2016! Doom under Obama. It's NEVER been about his skin color; IT'S BEEN ABOUT HIS SOCIALIST MARXIST IDEOLOGY. His exotic roots and questionable religion. Go the hell back to Indonesia, anywhere but the White House!
Romney/Ryan all the way!!!!

Obama is a man of many words but not a man of his word. Promises matter and unfortunately Obama has broken every one of them. I will not vote for Obama because he has no plan. I only heard him attack Mitt Romney, not what his plan is should he be re-elected (hopefully not) At least Mitt Romney has a plan. If people would actually look up his plan other than just listen to the media, then they will clearly vote for
Mitt.

Hating Romney because he is rich is no more a good reason not to vote for him than it is to vote for Obama because he is Black. Do you understand that Obama has no plan? Romney is successful and rich because he is smart. Death threats are coming on Twitter towards Romney daily. It show us how sick the left is. To think the next 4 years under obama won't ruin this country is the thoughts of a sick individual. When people say this country is not ready for a black president is true! The threat of him being voted out shows all the racial hatred and it's coming from the left. Obama must go. We cannot let the radicals destroy what Lawful Americans have built. Fight the radicals now!

Ursula, my issue is not that Obama is partially black, but that he made multiple promises - none of which were kept. My concern is that he's a Socialist, and I don't want to live in a Socialist country. He wants to allow the government to control our health care and retirement securities. He continually bows down to the Moslems and tries to remove God from all Federal buildings and documents. Why is he even bringing religion into government? Why did he seal his birth certificate and school documents as soon as he took office? He's an "employee" of the United States, so that type of information should be available to the Americans. There are far too many unexplained situations regarding Obama that point to untruths. We cannot afford another four disastrous years with Obama taking over our lives.

@ Ursula

Both Romney as well as Obama interrupted each other and talked over the mediator, so that's a wash. Most of Obama's statements were just to attempt to discredit Mitt. Our country's motto of "In God We Trust" is seriously being threatened, and perceived as offensive to non-Christians. We need to rally to vote Mitt in so we can preserve our heritage and follow the leader with the proven record for success.

I'm just gonna say it and leave it ...President Obama WON! AND MY PRESIDENT IS GONNA GET FOUR MORE FREAKIN YEARS. AND TO ANYONE WHOSE GOT SOMETHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT, YOU ALL CAN SINCERELY KISS MY ASS AS WELL AS MY BIRACIAL PRESIDENT'S ALSO. HE ROSE TO THE OCCASION JUST LIKE HE DID FOUR YEARS AGO. HE TOOK ROMNEY 'S ELITIST ASS TO TASK AND HE WON. SUCK IT HATERS. FOUR MORE YEARS FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA!

God, what koolaide are you drinking? Romney NOT GIVING SPECIFICS ON THE ECONOMY? Are you flippin deaf? Honey, do some reading and get a clue. THIS COUNTRY WANTS BO OUT!

I agree with you Rhett 100%! Romney is disrespectful, rude & a big mouth! Every time he butted in to make himself "look good", made not only me, but the rest of my family dislike him more and more. Also, his comment about being a Pastor in his church for 10 yrs in incorrect! The LDS (Mormons) call them a Bishop. If I were Mormon, just that one statement alone would have turned me to the other side. If he is going to bring his religion in to it, the least he can do is use the correct verbage! Obama/Biden all the way!!!!!

@ Diane Kilpack

Yeah, cuz O has done so much for people. MItt has counseled more people and donated more than O will ever see in his lifetime. O needs to go over there to Russia where he was caught off mic talking to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that he would be more "flexible" after his election. What an arrogant scary uck. He's going down on November 6th....America has had enough of the first black President; ready to take us over the fiscal cliff. Don't care color...care about ideology and HIS is WRONG for this country!SEE 2016!

I read what u said. Ok yes Romney was disrespectful, but he established his whole plan right there. Obama has no plan. He makes it all up on the spot. If your such a Obama fan than tell me 10 things that Obama has done to help this economy. No one else could tell and since you think your so smart i'll give you the honor to tell me. ROMNEY 2012! Restore America.

Go watch Romney Exposed on youtube and then let us know how you feel. A lot of it is in Romney's own words so there is NO denying he is the big liar... you couldn't get Obama or the last 24 Presidential candidates combined to equal the lies Romney has told during his political lifetime.
