Romney proved tonight that he does not have the poise to be president. I'm sorry but Romney still has not played out his plan. Education builds jobs!!
My own 10 year old son caught Robmey lies, Robmey said he spent his life in the private sector, not government. Uh, as my son said, "wasn't he a Governor"?
Great comment! Romney can't complete a sentence without lying!
Obama won, he is the best!
It's time to see if CNN reports enormous differences in the poll results opposed to those offered on other sites and media outlets. President Obama clearly won this debate.
Mitt Romney talked about single parent households ouch....
Why is the mormon question off the books,if I remember right,Obama's faith was questioned.
Romney was born with a silver spoon and has NO CLUE. He clearly demonstrates a product of corporate GREED and how the rich protect the rich. Give Obama another 4 and he will produce more, had a lot to dig us out of thanks to BUSH, another silver spooner.
Great job Romney! Definately the WINNER!!
Geez Ms. Crowley: how come you did not defend Romney during the debate as you did for the President? HMMMM? Just another media outlet advancing/defending the administration. How sad when the media can't be honest and report the facts.
I also thought it was very wrong when the President went to Las Vegas two thin days of the Lybia attack
Obama did awesome job. Won my vote! Welcome back Obama!
Obama all the way!!!
Pres O won clearly !!!! Great job back on track
Romney won this debate Obama has no idea what to do or he would have already done them in the last four years
I give this town hall meeting to President Obama
Yeah, Amy, you are right, we'll have no luck with consensual government anytime soon... Why am I such an idealist.? I know it's ultimately doomed... Maybe I should just give in and join a party...
Wow! Could Crowley have helped Obama anymore? More time. More cutting off Romney. More leading questions to help Obama. Will there be a moderator who leans more toward Republican since Democrats have been given such a gift today? I am all for a good debate but this was not fair. You need to find someone more neutral to get a fair representation of candidates.
Politicizing? Obama was delaying and downplaying Libya to prevent damage to his campaign. Shame on you and your team!
Larry L – LOL
Confident, presidential, passionate, ready to serve – Romney Obama too little too late – 4 years to late...there is no
redemption here for Obama....only hopes and dreams
Proud of u my president u won big time !!! Romney was thence repetitive and liar again
I believe the dispect romney showed the moderator was offensive an costs him votes this is a sad commentary on how in control he wants us to believe he is
Obama is a joke. 4 more years. Yeah right. Hasn't got anything done in the last 4!! #Romney/Ryan2012
Romney exposed for the irresponsible liar that he is. Obama was amazing!
Don't worry Mr, President, Candy Crowley's got your back.
