    I wonder if Mitt even knows what the game Battleship is! The US could halve the military and still be the strongest on the planet. We have 10 nuclear carrier battle groups around the globe.

    A vote for Obama is a vote for a loss of the American dream, Romney sounds like he know what he is doing and would fight for the American dream.

    President Obama is clearly the victor in this debate so far. Gov.Romney seems to be struggling to distinguish himself from President Obama in policy.

    Go President Obama! Romney is rude, and arrogant. President Obama gives you a clear detailed plan while Romney just repeats what the president says.
