    Very concerning to have a Romney presidency with such sense of world intolerance and incoherency.. Romney is good to run the Olympics not our nation!

    Romney, Has been caught in 5 lives which the Media seems to ignore. His Bain Corporation which he uses as Reference to show he balances the Budget has0laid off over 2000 and those laid off are expected to train workers in China to replace them. It was reported by CNN. In previous debate he went back to talking about
    Russia as Obama called him on the lie.
    Rom$ney is trying to take us back to depression state and more military rancor!

    Who is this man Romney.....he would have the world in conflict all the time. He says that we should organize a new government in Syria. We can't just walk in and take over countries everytime there is conflict in these regions. We need a President that will not have a war everytime another country goes into conflict within there country. Having Romney for president would be a diaster for America and our alies. Here's a man that ran BAIN CAPITAL and what did he do....he sourced out the work to a foreign country and layed off 2500 americans......what would he source out next...
    THE WHITE HOUSE WORKERS ........Mitt Romney, has pledged to continue the war on union members. He supported Gov. John Kasich in his move to blockcollective bargaining in Ohio, a bill that was overturned by a campaign and referendum led by organized labor.. Gov. Romney, said one the first things I' ll do – on day one he would end governments favoritism towards unions and contracting on federal projects, and end project labor agreements. In other words HE WANTS TO THE WORKERS AND THE PEOPLE OF MIDDLE CLASS AND THE PEOPLE THAT ARE IN SPECIAL NEEDS AND VETERNS THAT FOUGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY. He is a very deceitful man. He never even finished his term as Governor , if he got in the Whir House , would he be tired of it after the first year and leave the White House .
    This man is dangerous, all his money is in the Grand Caymans and he doesn't pay any Tax on it. He pays around 14 percent income tax......is this fare to the middle class people of the USA who pays 36-38% .
    He does't beleive in womens rights, he tells women that they do not have the right to choose for themselves.This is scarey stuff like going back to the 1940' s and 1950's. WERE GOING BACKWARDS NOT FORWARD.
    When the people of the USA vote Nov 6th, a vote for Mitt Romney , is a vote for the crumble of the USA.

    You can't seriously believe Obama! Sorry my son was in Iraq, I never forgot why we were there. Hell vote for me if you won't bote fir Romney. I'd do better than Obama! Obama has dine so well by our military? Thats why we all give to the wounded warrior project! This administration does not take care of our military. Ask them. He lies.

    This is the third debate and they continue to allow Obama to have more time to talk and spend more time spreading his lies and untruth.

    True RW&B

    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. -- AMEN!

    Could anyone flip flop on any more points than Romney? He has just adopted many of Obama's beliefs on how to handle things.

    Of course people are still hurting. I was too. The point is that recovery is happening.

    Afghanistan is a mess. We can't solve its problems particularly with a leader like Karzai. The sooner we are out the better. Neither candidate is going to change Afghanistan. Romney is demonstrating more than just a cursory knowledge of Pakistan, but he seems to be on the same page as Obama.

    In a nut shell? Obama is lost, he has failed in every aspect of the Office..

    Obama has no idea how to build the economy, and his policies have crippled our country.

    Obama is not even respected by he is own troops, how is any other nation,much less a nation hostile to the US supposed to respect him?

    Does anyone know anyone who is better now than they were four years ago...

    The truth is President Obama, can not give anything to anyone that he first doesn't take from someone else.

    What Obama isn't saying is that many of his policies are from the Bush Admin. Btw,the defense Sec. Is from Bush's admin. Lets use a college term you liberals will know....plagiarism.
