5 things to watch in tonight's debate

Boca Raton, Florida (CNN) - President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney meet Monday night in the last of their three debates, this one focused on foreign policy.

Unlike last week's contentious town hall-style debate in which the candidates ambled around the stage and parried with each other, Obama and Romney will be seated at a table with moderator Bob Schieffer, who told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram what he hopes comes out of the debate:

    Willard has no foreign policy after saying we keep 30,000 troops in Iraq in December. He is an idiot and embarrassment to USA and world. Obama12.

    We all KNOW what we are going to see tonight.

    A failed President, who has been DISMAL, in the job, continuing to lie, and use rhetoric, and NOT deeds to try to win again.

    Obama is a pathetic excuse for a President, and no one in their right mind should be voting for him!

    I love Bob Schieffer! Robmey better not mistake Bob with Jim Lehrer. Bob will hold both candidates feet to the fire. And yes, he'll fact check you on the spot. I can't wait.

    Today is as good a day as any to say farewell to CNN. A person can only take so much Romney bias when it becomes just too silly to continue to dig under the rock to get at the real issues facing America. These debates - ALL OF THEM - including the primary debates ... have been an insult to America. Campaign coverage, certainly coverage on the ticker, has been an insult to America these past few years. While "hate your neighbor" might play well on Jerry Springer, it does little service to mainstream media. Especially when those who actually LIKE that sort of ... well, baiting ... have so many other outlets to turn to. FOX News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Laura Ingram come to mind.

    Obama/Biden 2012 – 2016. Because Mitt Romney is nothing more than a pathological liar not fit to serve this great country of ours.
