A statement from the Obama campaign read: "Tonight, Americans saw a clash between facts and conviction on one side and glib lines and empty promises on the other. This debate showed that facts and details matter – and it's clear tonight that with their total disregard for either, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan know they can't defend their indefensible plans. It exposed the extreme risk Romney-Ryan economics pose for American middle-class and to our leadership in the world. And with facts, convictions and straightforward answers, Vice President Biden illustrated how he's spent a lifetime fighting for the middle class and how he and President Obama will continue doing so in a second term.
Romney's campaign released a series of statements from high-profile surrogates.
Their first release came from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor: "Congressman Ryan laid out a clear path for real recovery tonight. Instead of settling for four more years of the same – a stagnant economy, rising taxes and debt, and more Americans trapped in government dependency – voters can choose a path based on job creation and opportunity for all. Congressman Ryan clearly won this debate by outlining a vision for economic prosperity and a bold agenda for our country's future. Voters have a big choice in November, and their choice was made even easier tonight."
Ryan the hot air blower. empty bag
If romney win america is done am an immigrant and i tell the truth i can say peopple open your eye cuz romney mess up that country
I find it interesting that Obama's first statement is once again to belittle the opponent and Romney's camp only talked up their strengths.
Good job Mr. Biden. And thank you to his son for serving our country.
Uh, which debate was Cantor watching?
Obama, get that BAIN-CAPITA Cheat., thug of the nation is mitt.
Numbers are not totally correct and some are missing when I last checked with ORC International website – who did the poll for CNN.
Romney camp know they lost last's debate. No specfics just more lies and touching stories about people he really doesnt know. I hope he got their permission before he used their names unlike is running mate. I want facts and figures. and by the way 10yrs worth of tax returns Mr Romney....please
Ryan " Mr. Vice president you of all people should know words don't always come out the right all the time.
Biden " Yes but I always say what I mean just like Gov Romney about the 47%
EPIC!!! love love love
I thought Joe did a great job. He's very down to earth and know what the "regular American" goes through everyday. Not so with Romney/Paul, they only care about you if your rich. Remember the 47%? GO OBAMA!!!
