    Romney Is a Phoney Says:

    Romney thought he’d lie again tonight and get away with it like he did last debate; little did he know Obama was prepared to come swingin’! Romneys’ inconsistencies were brought up. His 47% was mentioned. And his LIE regarding President Barack Obama not referring to the Libya attack as an act of “terrorism” was also shot down following a vivacious applause from the audience! 100% my butt. At this point, Romney will do anything–anything–to get into the White House. He even rehearsed his “I feel ya, poor people and illegal aliens” tone. Laughable performance. You’d have to be dumb or simply naive not to see it.

    He was on it right from the get go!

    I’m not naive or dumb, nor is my opinion. SO WHAT IF WE HAVE TO PAY MORE TAXES???!!! Romney IS lying to appease you LAZY American people. HE’S DOING IT SO THAT WE AREN’T IN SO MUCH DEBT!!! WHY is that such a bad thing? People NEED to get off their lazy ass and NOT expect the government to care for them. ROMNEY for PRESIDENT– so MY CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN don’t have to deal with the mistakes my generation did.

    toni Says:

    I hope the same people who attacked Joe Biden for his action do the same for Romney because he was straight disrespectful to both President Obama and the moderator.
    Also Mitt was lying like a rug tonight talking about he cares about the middle class when he came out with his 47% comment months ago (thank you Obama for bringing it up).
    He also went around the mulberry bush with the questions instead of answering them directly.

    Kevin Says:

    Romney is a fake. His phoniness is blatant, yet some people are falling for his guile. The guy has no plan. Imagine if someone told you to give them a certain power and once it is in his or her hands, the person will then tell you specifically what he will do with that power. Are you kidding me? The phony has no plan — he and his handlers believe the American people are dumb and will fall for this idea. Frankly, I am sick of his “no specific plan” campaign. Full of nothing, just hot air.

    Obama clearly won.

  29. 29
    Adriana Says:

    @Meh: No. HAHA. LMAO. He’s lying because if he said, “I’m raising taxes.” NO ONE would vote for him. BECAUSE Americans are LAZY and WANT to put off consequences for later. I WON’T LET THAT HAPPEN TO MY FUTURE KIDS.

    Florida Says:

    Bush is for bringing down Saddam Hussen and Obama will go down for
    For killing Bin Laden! Yes Murdering a man who was not attacking
    American Miltary! Just blow his head off! Than hiding the fact that
    They put him out to see with out coverage! Really Obama! Where is the proof that he was sent out to see!

  33. 33
    Bill Says:

    Obama clearly won and Romney loves to lie. Romney revels in mendacity. When he is not lying that’s when he looks most uncomfortable. That tells you something about the type of person he is…

    No one is perfect — but I’d rather vote for Obama, then for a guy who relies on “trust me… I’ll do the job well” without any specification. Someone needs to tell Romney that just because most of the American people do not have an Ivy League education does not mean we are dumb. We will not fall for your illogical, nonsensical rants.

    diana Says:

    Romney looked like the robot that he is tonight. That guy seldom has a candid moment, unless when he is stating behind closed doors that 47% of the American people are plain lazy and worthless.

    Romney reeks of pomposity. Plain and simple. I would not trust that guy with anything –self-serving Wall Street type — I recognize the type.

    Greg Says:

    Spoken like the top 1%. It is taxing people who cannot afford more taxes that is drawing fire. Also going back to policies that got us in this situation in the first place. Obama caught his lies and Romney went from being a conservative to a moderate in record time contradicting what he has said in the past. You can’t trust him. He is saying what you want to hear.

  40. 40
    @32 Says:

    ” Yes Murdering a man who was not attacking
    American Miltary!”
    You’re right, he didn’t attack the military. He attacked and killed THOUSANDS of civilians. Men, women and children of all colors and creeds.
    He deserved to be hunted down like the animal that he was, and put out to “see”. Praise goes to President Obama for having the guts to sign the order.

    My body, my vote Says:

    OMG! You ARE naive and I guess easily mislead. Voting for Romney will NOT help your children/grandchildren. He is just all talk and lies.

    I believe you should go check yourself someone safe.

    Adriana Says:

    @Counselor: Yup, all talk and lies. That’s exactly why Massachusetts did so well, eh? Having the people get taxed more so that debt can be relieved? No, he couldn’t possibly be doing that… He couldn’t possibly want this country out of debt. And yup, because Obama did EVERYTHING he promised in his campaign in 2008. EVERY candidate lies, my friend. It’s sad you haven’t figured that out yet.

    Brian Says:

    Romney’s type is ubiquitous in high places. Smug look –check– big checkbook –check– offshore accounts–check– the type who will never be seen with the common folks unless it is for a photo op/ pr/image boost. No thanks. I’ll pass.

    Obama won tonight, thank goodness. I’m tired of these lies that Romney, his sidekick (Ryan) and his party spread — just plain rubbish.

    You all back up your point SO well. Lmao. Gimme something good to rebuttal. This is just sad.

    AllYouGottaDoIsTHINK Says:

    @Karen: Nooooooo, Romney is also relying on Hollywood but for various reasons. To help him with his A-C-T-I-N-G. Where else do you think he gets his puppy dog faces and I-feel-you-poor-people tone from? Romney is relying on three things: 1.) His acting abilities 2.) His lies & 3.) Naive people to buy the previous two. And so far he’s proven to be an Oscar worthy actor because everyone who thought he “won” in the last debate, bought into his bullsh–. Example A.) He made a comment behind closed doors about 47% of Americans being lazy moochers. He then stood by them when he was called out in a press conference, and then later flip-flopped AGAIN when he apologized after he was still high from his first debate “win”. The only thing consistent about Mitt Romeny, are his inconsistencies! The man can’t make up his mind because he isn’t true to his values, his morals or his principals simply because they won’t get him into the White House! He says whatever you want to hear as long as you elect him. Wow, JUST the characteristic you’d want in a President running an entire country of 300 million+ /Sarcasm.

  56. 56
    leaning to Obama Says:

    after doing some background check on Romney, I feel disappointed he had four deferments and didn’t do military service during the Vietnam era, instead he went to France for his religion. Now all of his five sons are not in the military, is he willing to send his sons to fight the war on terror? or are they all “fortunate sons” By the way where is the 5 point plan. Romney is a spoil rich kid and will only cater to the rich. He doesn’t care about the 47%.

  57. 57
    Sure About Obama 100% Says:

    @not American: You obviously don’t pay attention to the news….

    Romney so desperately want to come off average — he looks like a robot spit him out. He never answers the questions. He is always on the attack. He appears untrustworthy. Who is he kidding. He looks like he has been “groomed in a lab” to run for president.

    Won’t get my vote. He does not believe in the American people. He is just a pessimist pompous.

    Go Obama. Vote people.

  62. 62
    Dalia Says:

    There’s enough robots in Washington, DC. We sure do not need another one. Robot Romney is not for women rights. In fact, he appears to be for something else on any given Sunday, debate, or rally. He is a walking contradiction. He has more sides to his political beliefs than a dice. I have yet to learn what this guy stands for, aside from doing anything necessary to keep he and his cronies from paying their fair share/taxes.

    Barack has my vote. Albeit not perfect, our President has kept many of his promises, he continues to believe in the American people, he maintains his stance on bringing our troops home, he supports focusing on our many domestic issues, as opposed to depleting all our resources on wars, he believes in women right to choose (as well as religious freedom), he insists on people fighting their own wars — this is why it’s so important that we allow those we have trained to aid their own affairs and their own people. We cannot stay there forever.

  63. 63
    Marigold Says:

    Calm down. I’m not American either but to tell you the truth, this political system or we can call is control system that the world have not just America does not do any good for some of us if not all – it’s confusing and misleading for some(that includes myself, lol). To all Americans, fighting or debating who’s good or who’s not, or who’s lying or telling the truth is of NO use. I’ll say, good luck and just VOTE who you think has an honest HEART and intention, and VOTE for the person who has the ABILITY to MAKE things DONE. Peace!

  64. 64
    Steve Says:

    Romney and poser Ryan speak in such trivial terms about war probably because neither have to ever worry about going to war themselves or their children. War is bloody. Where is the empathy. Clearly a person does not have to experience something to imagine it.

    We have had enough of our men and women dying. And, no, Romney, I do not want the US to go to war with Iran. Your hardball business sense is not going to work in every scenario, especially in the name of diplomacy and international matters. Foreign policy should not be treated like you are on Wall Street –where cut throat, distrust, backstabbing, no honor etc are the norm…

    Obama understands that the truth matters. He also understands that sometimes you can agree to disagree and still manage to come to an understanding for the sake of peace, even if it takes time. I am not keen on having someone in the White House who thinks every international conflict necessitate a violent response. Obama has my vote.

  65. 65
    Texas Says:

    Equal rights for Romney as it pertain to women is nothing more than a political topic for the day. He is rehearsed. He has no affect, as he is merely muttering the words prepared by his handlers. Although most, if not all politicians have speech writers, some improvise, and make alterations extemporaneously –but not Romney.

  66. 66
    Pete Says:

    Regardless of political Party….take a long hard look at the shape America is in.

    Our National Debt is $16 trillion dollars!!!….That is an increase of $6 trillion in less than 3 yrs.
    Unemployment was above 8% for over 3 years.
    Food Stamps are up 46%.
    Americans in poverty has risen from 39.8 million in ’09 to 46.2 million in ’11.
    Gasoline has gone from $1.86 to $3.70 as a national average.
    Economic growth has been a dismal 1.5% or worse the past 3 yrs.
    Home values have decreased over 13%.
    America’s Competetive Rating has gone from 1st place in ’08 to 7th place in ’12.
    Our National Credit Rating has been lowered…..TWICE!!!

    Is THIS what YOU were promised? Are THESE the results YOU expected?
    These are not just EMPTY numbers people!!!
    This is hard evidence of a complete policy FAILURE!!!

    This is OUR country!!! We the PEOPLE PAY TAXES to our government to be used for OUR BENEFIT…..AND OUR NATION’S BENEFIT!!!
    Do YOU feel like you have benefitted from the policies of the last 4 years?
    Is THIS what YOU call…..SUCCESS?!?!?!?!!!

    Barack Obama came out in true campaign mode in the 2nd debate. Loud, rude, condescending, interruptive, dismissive…..Oh yeah, that’s sooooo Presidential!!!

    All of Obama’s ranting and accusations and preaching about how great HIS plans are….don’t change the fact that…..HIS PLANS HAVE NOT WORKED!!!!!

    Not only have they NOT worked…..they have FAILED…..and failed MISERABLY!!!!
    And you want MORE of this?!?!?!?!?

    God help us!!!

    Corey Says:

    Mr. President, you have my vote. Things are not perfect (it’s been a hard road) but you bet we are better off. I cannot imagine the disaster we would be in today if it were not for a change in leadership. I believe you when you speak, I believe you when you talk about your humble beginnings, I believe you when you are talk about women rights, I believe you when talk about the importance of education/opportunities, I believe you when you say you have much left to do.

  68. 68
    @66 Says:

    “Loud, rude, condescending, interruptive, dismissive…..”
    Funny, you just described Romney in the first debate.
    He tried it here, too. But he was caught in so many lies that he had to shut up. Even the moderator fact checked him into silence.
    BTW, the debt has increased because we are still paying for two wars that george W didn’t pay for. And the fact that the republican congress refuses to let POTUS raise taxes on the wealthy.
    Unemployment is going down, more people are going back to work here in America. Romney only fires Americans to send their jobs to China. That’s his specialty, yet you think that he will fight for us?
    Detroit is alive and well thanks to POTUS. Romney would have let those jobs disappear.
    Oh, and in early 2008. gas prices were over $4.00 per gallon. I remember that well, because we purchased two economy cars and got rid of our guzzlers, just for that reason. Prices dropped nearing November because big oil wanted a republican in office, and tried to make them look good. They went down even farther because of the recession caused by the policies of a republican president.
    President Obama respects the middle class, where Romney disdains it.
    The President’s policies are working. It just takes time to dig himself out of the hole that Bush left him in.
    President Obama has my vote…AGAIN!

  69. 69
    Jeff Says:

    The thing I find odd is, Romney seems to prepare his rebuttals/and attacks on Obama with precision, yet he fails to offer any of his so-called plans. What a joke. I am not falling for it! Romney does not talk about the specifics of his plans because he knows the American people would be mortified. Currently, he just thinks the American people are plain dumb devoid of critical thinking skills so he is just spreads vitriol and smack with no substance.

    I guess America got a glimpse of Romney today. He is one pompous, privileged, lying, jerk. He could barely hide behind his mask. He keeps citing his so called “corporate business experience” as the reason why he would perform well as president. Hmmm.. okay… we all know what goes on in corporate America, Romney, and it’s ugly. No thanks!

    HardWorkingLutheran Says:

    @AllYouGottaDoIsTHINK:

    Did you watch the complete Mother Jones video from the fundraiser or are you regurgitating sound bytes? He did not say they were lazy I quote:

    “There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what. And I mean, the president starts off with 48, 49, 48—he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. And he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean that’s what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people—I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. What I have to do is convince the 5 to 10 percent in the center that are independents that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or the other depending upon in some cases emotion, whether they like the guy or not, what it looks like. I mean, when you ask those people…we do all these polls—I find it amazing—we poll all these people, see where you stand on the polls, but 45 percent of the people will go with a Republican, and 48 or 4… [Recording stops.] ”

    We never hear the rest of the statement. But my point is this is a fundraiser talking approach to the campaign. In regards to the statement “And so my job is not to worry about those people—I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” taken out of context is very damaging but if you see the whole statement and place it in the perspective of a fundraiser not so.

    As for the 47 percent read this post it might bring you some enlightenment:

    cara Says:

    It is true that it is easier to keep track of the truth, as opposed to keeping track of lies. Romney clearly looked befuddled because he lost track of his lies. How does he expect me to vote for him if he cannot even manage his lies, let alone voting for him to manage a nation!

    Obama has my vote. Perhaps when Obama has some time he can teach Romney a thing or two about decorum and civility. What a jerk that Romney is — I guess money cannot buy class, not even for a few hours for a television debate!

    Go Obama!

    Bryon Says:

    The people who try to make excuses for Romney’s dismissal of millions of Americans when he thought no one was listening are delusional. Romney could careless about the American people, so much so, he has not even bothered to tell the American people EXPLICITLY what he plans to do if he were to be elected.

    Romney talks about women in a very foreign, unfamiliar tone. His women in a binder comment was very awkward for someone who is trying to position himself as some kind of pioneer for women advocacy. Who is he kidding.

    Ironically enough, Romney was completely dismissing the (woman) moderator as if she was not there, as if she was beneath him. He probably mistook her for the help. I guess she was not in that binder he spoke of.

    He thinks that if you don’t pay taxes, you aren’t working. Well, Mittens, many people who don’t pay taxes are working two or three low paying jobs, trying to make ends meet for their children. Or seniors who have worked their entire lives, and now draw social security. Or the disabled, be they veterans who risked their lives to protect us, or those dying fom cancer. And yes, Mitt, our soldiers across the globe who even now are under attack, don’t pay taxes either. Are they “victims” to you?

    Obama was 10 during Vietnam so, no, he didn’t serve in the military and is not of a generation where there was a draft. BIDEN had the same number of deferments at **** CHENEY while MITTENS dodged the draft on religious grounds to spend two years biking around France as his “missionary work” for his church.
    MITTENS comes from a family where THREE generations of men including his father, his uncles, he and his cousins and his FIVE sons and their cousins have NOT served in the armed forces even during wartime.
    Romney has no problem sending other peoples’ children to die if they’re poor or as a way to get a green card but not his own kids who are “serving their Country” by working on their father’s campaigns as “Patriotic Americans”.

    Biden’s son Beau served in Iraq – heck even Palin’s son served in Iraq!

    The moderator on the debate last night was clearly leaning Obama. You can see how many times Candy interrupted Romney but allowing Obama to respond on what Romney was saying. You can see also that when Romney blocked Obama’s sight on Candy, he tried to lean on the side and look on Candy that he wanted to stop Romney on his point. Obama kept pressing Candy to watched the time for Romney but not on him. As for Benghazi, Libya, people that watched the news since Sept. 11, 2012 know that Obama and the rest of his administration were lying about it. Last night if Obama said that he called the attacked “act of terror” then why did he blame the video for how many days? And when Obama said that he doesn’t want Romney’s side to politicize it, why not? Four Americans got killed because of this administration’s foreign policy. This is not the same as the Colorado theater massacre or Arizona massacre but remember when the Arizona massacre happened, Democrats were politicizing it and jumped to a conclusion that the killer did it because he is some kind of a right wing radical and it turn out the killer was not a registered republican, in fact he is more liberal. And for the family of the four American got killed in Libya, this is the right time to talk about it on how, what, when, why and who are responsible to their death. This is the right time because there are some people who will be in your side. You don’t want the four american’s death will be buried like the death of the border patrol agent, black panther case on 2008, voters fraud like Micky Mouse voted 1000 times that got wipe out. You don’t want that to happen in your love one’s death. You need to find out who is responsible and punish it. This is your time, don’t give up.

    So after the debate last night, we found out that someone is lying in this administration about the death of the four Americans in Benghazi, Libya. We don’t know which one was telling the truth, is it Biden or Obama? According to Biden during his debate, he said that “we don’t know it was a terrorist attacked” and blame it to the intelligence officials that they got misinformed but according to Obama during the debate last night, the next day after the death of the 4 Americans, he called it “act of terror” but obviously it showed within 2 weeks, he was still blaming the video. If it is true that he knew it was an act of terror then who told him it was the video and who told him it was because according to Biden, they did not receive an information that confirm it was a terrorist attack? But the good thing about last night’s debate was at least Obama said he is the one who is fully responsible for the death of 4 Americans. So, the investigation should not stop on Hillary Clinton or Susan Rice, it should stop on the one who is fully responsible for it. In my own belief, I had a feeling that Obama knew about the terrorist’s plan. This is just my analysis of the possibilities on what happened. Before the DNC convention, maybe there was a deal from the terrorist, either Chris Stevens’ head or changing the Democrat’s platform, taking out GOD and Israel and they did. But on the day of their convention, they put back GOD and Israel even the majority of the votes said they don’t want GOD and Israel. So for that moved, it was Chris Stevens head was the terrorist picked in celebration for the 9/11. If I am wrong about my analysis then question yourself who commanded Chris Stevens to go to Benghazi if he originally was in Tripoli specially at that time there were incidents of a terrorist attacked in Benghazi? And what a coincidence that the two navy seals were there too and why they were there?The death of Chris Stevens was obviously the terrorist’s plan and someone was approving it. The investigation should dig on who was approving it and should be punish for what he/she did. Hopefully, the facts will come out before the end of the year.
