    Any time the president said but I knew the next thing out of his mouth was a lie. James leman total transformation taught me that. One thing I did notice the undecided voters were not undecided. Totally biased crowd shame on you CNN.

    Did anyone else notice how Ann Romney snubbed the First Lady following after the debate? She totally turned her back on her! It was so obvious! What was that about?

    From the New York Times, November 18, 2008, "The federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing and assure car buyers that their warranties are not at risk."

    Funny, I've been researching everything barack has called future Pres. Romney out on and so far everything checks out. It's sad to have such a coward leading our country for the past 4 years. For someone that's been to Iraq and still know of people that are active in the country we should still be there. People there are still too corrupt to maintain a steady and faithful government.

    Obama would call Mitt a liar, and Mitt would never say how he would change the situation.

    Oooooh Obama won tonight. I'd go anonymous. Ouch the burn. Give me a break. He lied every time his lips moved.

    GO MITT ROMNEY! He has the true potential of a president. He also has a more mature and knowledgable Vice than *laughing Joe*.

    Obama clearly won – Mitt was sweaty and nervous and knew he was out of his league! He does NOT look like a Commander-in-Cheif. He lied all the way – his advisors are neocons.

    James Leman taught me In total transformation anytime someone use the word but the next thing out of their mouth is a lie. Obama used but to many times so now thank you debates for letting me know Obama is a liar.

    America needs a leader who will restore confidence and patriotism. We need a leader who lets the rest of the world clearly see that the United States is the strongest nation in the world. I know someone who used to be a radical Muslim; he equivocally states that terrorist groups like al-Qaeda see America as weakening in its efforts to control control them. The Middle East is at a critical juncture; Romney clearly takes that very serously.We need a president who will carry America's torch. I believe Romney will do that.

    It would be alot easier every election if a candidate was disqualified for deliberately telling an untruth to the American people. In addition, special interest groups would be prosecuted or fined severely for spreading untruths about the other candidate. At least then we would have an idea of what we were really voting for.....if their would be any candidates left to vote for, that is. I would like to see HONESTY in all parties....how else can we know? A person can do tons of research and still not know what is truth and what isn't. I vote for TRUTH!

    So when President Obama is calm, he is weak but when Willard looks like he popped a couple of Valium, he is presidential?? What hypocrites the GOP supporters are.
