    It is unfair to say that Governor Romney is wrong. After all he has at one point in time or another taken both sides of almost every issue. I have no idea what he realy believes. For all I know we may be in complete agreement...

    Romney is all over the board. He can't seem to make up his mind! He can't keep track of his lies!

    Wow President Obama if you know how to create jobs why haven't you created them? If you know how to fix the economy why is it still broken after four years? I agree, lets check the record...

    Romney's Truths and clarity far outweigh Obama's sideways talk and cover ups

    Romney born in Mexico or Detroit. Guess it depends on when he is speaking. This moderator does nothing. He may be a good guy but he is doing nothing. Bring candy back

    Governor Romney has repeated what President Obama says, he's taking notes and looking down. He's not listening to what President Obama says. You just blamed what's wrong with china on a fellow republican. President Obama has been clear and precise. Also Governor Romney you broke a golden rule for a debate. You never ever interupt or be rude to the moderator! Go President Obama!

    I think they should have let the CAR companies fall. And all the cars ive owned have been American. But Cars are so over priced its scary. How is it that a overseas company can build a car, ship it, pay import taxes, and charge state tax on top of that and still turn a profit? The US companies should have died off, they would have came up again and sold there cars for a more resnable price to get buyers back.
