    Mitt the Twit really earned his nickname tonight. He made a total fool of himself tonight. Not a Presidential level candidate. Fact check: Obama inherited the spiraling recession from Bush.

    Romney seems shocked to hear what problems the 99% has.

    Maybe Bain would have been waiting in the wings to invest in Detroit when you promoted their failure. Hopefully you didn't give your blind trust a nod on that one.

    Romney is lying AGAIN! He is saying now that he never said "let Detroit go under". All lies...we CANNOT have a President that lies constantly. Just unbelievable. Obama has the credibility and a demonstrated record .... He truly cares about helping this country, not just helping the rich get richer. With Romney we'd be back in the Bush years for sure. He'd create a horrible mess. I trust Obama so much more.

    The foreign policy debate just shows the American people, Romneys lack of foreign policy knowledge, and basics to foreign relations. Of course we have less navy ships now compared to 1916, we have less horses and bayonets too!!! Hahaha that was great, Romney doesn't understand the military or the technology we have in place. Being a CEO of a corporation is in no way comparable to a commander in chief, you have to understand international relations and the military as well!!! Team Obama

    Mitt Romney is looking very knowledgeable on foreign policy. I was undecided until this debate – I believe tonight has been a draw/tie. It all comes down to the economy. I think Mitt Romney has the edge . Obama is trying to use a smokescreen by trying tactics that are not hugely important .

    Why do so many people believe Obama? He has a plan? Where was the plan four years ago? What has he done for the Citizens in this Country?
    Debt
    Highest unemployment rate
    Dream Act for illegals

    Another four years what will America be under Obama?

    The most important thing is getting us out of this debt. Once that is done, Our economical strength would help solve al other issues quickly. Money runs the world.

    Obama has made a fool of himself for 4 years. If you think Romney did tonight, well, you are wrong but it is one night. Not four years. No more Osama..... I mean, Obama. We newd bipartisan. We need Mitt.

    Can you imagine the state of our economy if the US auto industry failed? Romney would have shipped all of those jobs over seas as well. Obama 2012!
