    I can not believe they are talking about Iran. Iran was their best freind in 1970s and after they ( republican and carter) kicked Shah out of the country for Nothing but OIL, and now they are looking for different way to get elected like Regan

    An apology tour? Hasn't that been disproved? Romney must be getting really tired.

    I seem to recall obama's campaign pledge from his 2008 Hope and Change campaign... He ran on, and was partly elected, by promising to shut down the war in Iraq promptly. That is why many people voted for him. He did not do that, he let it run its course. Then he went full steam ahead on Afghanistan. Obama is the twit. Not Romney. Obama is the one with no record to run on.

    I hate to see falsities take place, such as the paying of kids to come on and post statementsn that are driven by the money they earn, rather than actual political ideology.

    I don't mind paying more taxes, but not to a bunch of idiots in DC who cannot balance their check books, pay taxes or tell the truth. I would gladly pay more just not to a bunch of people giving the money to people who do not work. I don't want a president who is Robin Hood but I do want a president who has a business background and not supreme community organizer.....come on you guys.

    "Meet with all the worlds worst actors?" Romney rambled on from there with "apology tour". Obama response "Romney's biggest whopper yet!" LOL. This debate is funny!

    Obama is rude, disrespectful, and arrogant. This is what America is represented by? Romney looks presidential, Obama looks juvenile.

    What this counrty needs is a business minded President, We have to fix our economy, and get out of Debt, if we want the US to stay on Top.

    C'mon Obama, when are you going to realize we are one nation, under God... UNAPOLOGETIC. When your aid automatically responds by apologizing that shows the administration you have put in place.
