    Obama doing great and looking very President. Romney doesn't understand what it takes to lead a country. Maybe a crooked company in the private sector but not a country. Romney what a joke he's just another Dick C. not working for Pres. Bush

    I love Obama being able to specifically state Mitt's stances and how wrong they've been.

    Russia's an unknown quantity. They're neither friend nor foe. Just like any less developed country, they require pandering and a heavy stick

    When the POTUS fact checks Willard, he lies and says he didn't say that. If you were so great Willard why are you losing MA? Why do the people in MA not want you as POTUS??

    I think someone should tell Obama he is still not telling anyone anything new, and it’s still not working.

    Currently the world likes Obama--but the world doesnt respect America--no one likes us until they need our help. I am a veteran and this president has bowed to the world trying to help, he has tried but it's like a kid who finishes second and his parents keep telling him that he won bc the other kid cheated.

    Schieffer is getting his little democrat points in. I think that Obama has a PLUS 5 minutes based on the last 2 debates.....so let him catch up.

    The states should run their economies but the US should run the Middle East.

    President Bush signed the agreement to get us out of Iraq. President Obama tried to renegotiate the status of forces agreement but the Iraqi Government rejected it.

    Romney just can't add or tell the truth. President Obama wins tonight with just telling the truth with honor and correct math.

    Obama just tell us how you fix the US, not what you have been doing the last 4yrs because it’s not working!!!

    true Obama cant do it in 4 years, but considering that in the last 4 we have put our selves in so much debt, that it would take 8-10 years. We dont need for more years of Obama, so it will take 16- 20 years to get out of debt.

  25. Wake up People!

    Willard says he can balance the budget in 8-10 years, but he expects President Obama to do it in 3-1/2???

    Didn't he also say in the last debate that he was proud of Obamacare and wouldn't repeal it???

    Oh Willard, you are such a liar!!
