Trickle Down economics has never worked and Romney's plan is trickle down economics.
Town hall BULLY? When he does poorly he is criticized and when he stands up for his beliefs he is a bully? His performance is amazing!
For those that believe that out government and presidential candidates are out of touch, that could not be farther from the truth. They are engage and know what our people need. Who knows it more is the question. Which has a true tough with our problems and has a recipe for solutions. I find no remedy from Romney and have a high confidence in Obama,. For that reason, Obama is winning my vote. He has solutions which he expresses and Romney has too many generalities. Where are the plans and solutions Romney????
I really am into Romney, and will vote for him. But tonight they are both WAY off topic. That goes for the President and Romney. I don't see where schools or Obamacare fit into gun laws. Just ANSWER THE QUESTION.
@ Anonymous Maybe you should ask Romney for the name of his accountant.
Mitt romney is just a lying snake very rude too not very proffessional cuttting people off when they talk. He seems to have no respect. He wants people to be married to have kids he's crazy. Pro choice on everything.
The only way to bring back manufacturing is to automate the processes. If it is labor we lose.
Were not fools to believe i mitt runeAmerica of his fictitious plan
I haven't heard any specifics fro Mitt Romney. Good going for Mr Obama
FireThis is sad. I have yet to see something presidential. It's crunch time. No more politics. We People need a strong voice. Back to basics. It starts at home. Treasury bonds for China? I like it. Let them invest in our potential. Mangos for nucleartechnology...hope they offered a few diamonds. We are starving here. We need a great leader. It may only give you a few years, but the collective voice of the people gets you more than just Senate votes. Id like to think that our evolved or new president doesnt require a Voodoo priestesses and a shovel. Be fearless. That will get your votes
....how about making the US the most attractive place for its citizens, Mitt??
I HATE OBAMA! low skills???? why is that? school reform!!!! you haven't changed anything. a lot of children are still way behind!!! wake up obama!!!
and by the way i am from massachusetts and romney did a great job in this state that is run by the "kennedy school of government" at harvard! also known as the people republic of massachusetts!
Yes government can create jobs
Why are there so many Obama supporters who blog as anonymous or no name. Oh never mind.... Not totally shameless!
Obama won this debate hands down.
Isn't being the President a government made job?
Romney doesn't really know anything about the people he is not being honest with us if you vote for him your rolling the dice and I was going too not now and pitty the people that do he's fake
Thanks to Obama care small business has gone to 30 hours a week so they don't have to pay higher taxes
If I was on the fence before the debate Obama's rudeness to all the people on stage just helped me decide to vote for Romney
I really like the "undecided voters" /- line for me and women. What I don't like is the colors. Why are men green? The yellow (women) us behind the green, so you can't see it unless/ until there is a difference better sexes. The men should me blue, so that when they come together, they turn green and sedan really see what the sexes are reacting to.
He saying a campaign attacks people he's been attacking and looking foolish the whole time shame on you mitt romney! Go punish big bird
Bottom line is Obama hasn't stayed true to his word as the president. That's why he doesn't deserve a second chance!
Okay Obama! I better be able to sell my house and still be above the waters IF and that's a big IF you win. The thing is Obama, you lie. you lie everyday!
