    I can't even take Obama seriously. Romney has so much more command and he is more confident. Obama keeps looking down and stuttering. Why? I guess when your record is as bad as his, you really can't look up.

    Obama is not telling anyone what he will do to fix the mess he has made of the US.

    What is up with Obama's eyes? He is blinking so fast ... Not sure if he is trying to stay awake or starting to twitch. Romney has a nice bipartisan tie on though. At least one of them is bipartisan!

    Obama has a way with words, it got him elected, but there is no substance. He didn't move heaven and earth to get Osama, he sent a small group of seals. Such a huge manipulator of the facts.

    Willard continues to try to talk over the moderator and try to take over the debate. Thanks for agreeing with the POTUS though.

    Those who say Obama hasn't done anything in the last four years, live under a Rock with the Bushs!!

    We can not afford to have a president that lies and only care for the rich!!! We can not afford another Bush disaster.

    Obama's policies are what had steadily & surely moved this country out of the Great Recession. After feeling the recession hard for 3.5 yrs, it is over for me & my family. Recovery is happening all over the country.

    When we leave afghanistan, all the generals and there soldiers will become the biggest crooks around. They will begin stealing from all of the locals. That place will become worse than it was before we set foot their.

    Romen talks in generalities – you certainly get the sense that he is scripted but can not dive deep

    We're talking about 4 more years of debt spiraling out of control... I know what I have with Obama. I'll take my chances with someone who has actually balanced a budget before.
