(CNN) – President Barack Obama and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney go head to head for the first time Wednesday night, taking the stage in Denver for this cycle's inaugural presidential debate. After spending days in preparation and raising expectations for their respective opponent, both candidates will have the chance to make their case with a little more than one month before Election Day.
Tune in to get minute-by-minute updates throughout the evening, including trivia, fact-checks, polls, and tweets.
Mrs T, I have never paid close to 5 dollars per gallon under the last President. Jobs have been outsourced even before Bush. It was already outsourced under Clinton.
GI Joe. What you are looking at is a commanding leader. And we've never needed one more than now!
Let me see Obama Care, Romney Care, which one sounds better hmm...
Romney seems much more confident.
Are mitt bots insane. The HMOs are considered by most doctors to be soulless. They keep costs down by REJECTING the claims of the most seriously ill.
Romney says leave it to the states please what a bag of crap!! . My health care is been going up for years,, and this year i at least got a refund.
Sally! you are right he is stumbling and falling fast!!!! I laugh at that joke hahahaha!!
As an independent......Romney just cleaned the president's clock in this debate
Mitt chooses private healthcare because he can afford whatever he wants for his family. Ridiculous.
He does not get it for the average middle class family.
It is funny how Romney changes like a chamelion.......I cannot be specific on what he is going to do
Insurance companies tell us what we cannot have already. And they raise their rates at least once a year.
Romney is attacking!!! WHAT'S YOUR PLAN MITT???
the whole health care system is so wrong, my husband an i have insurance through his employer we paid the extra, so in and out of network had the same deductibles, and there is nothing in network in our state, we were not told about a clause in the benefits about reasonable and considerate so now we owe almost sixty three thousand, when max individual is suppose to be fity nine hundred
I see Romney handing Obama his shorts after paddling him with facts that Obama can't seem to answer without repeating something Romney already corrected him on three times. Obama does not look happy either and would rarely look up at him. That is not presidential. I guess teleprompters help loads.
Obama looks so uncomfortable
Flip flop Mitt. He starts with "something we agree on......". Now hes saying what should be dun differently. Is he on planet earth?? Typical Mitt-cant stick to the topic & ends with a totally differnt view.
Romney is coming off as being educated. Obama while educated pauses way too much and is having a hard time piecing together a sentence.
Those of you who think Mitt is a liar... he is a politician much like Obama.. they both lie get over it.
If you really think all those debt could have been fix in 4 yrs then you didn't know how BAD the economy was! The Mr. "BUSH" didn't bring things to light until after the election.
I was always told the President is a great speaker. What happened?
President Obama continues to explain what Romneys plans are, and everytime he does he repeats the same untruths...4 years and now he has a plan?? to little to late
The HMOs Have panels that determine if your claim should be paid, what the heck is romney talking about
And by the way those insurance companies, have deliberately decided to let people die in order to pay execs bonuses
Romney is so spoiled – even a debate has to be played by his rules... Can you imagine what he could do to government,,,!,, God help us
I don't see how anyone can watch these two men and want Romney as president. Obama is calm, cool, collected... and he makes sense. Romney's eyes are darting all over the place... and the few details that he does give on his plans keep changing... and his math does not work!
Richard from Texas, How is Obama a disaster, please be specific
The President has been back peddling, avoiding specifics and demagoguing most of the night. He can't pop smoke and stall fast enough.
