    Folks….let Obama finish off what he aimed to clean up after Bush. Bush and the republicans did so much damage it will take time.

    I really hope people dont vote for Romney. If so, that tells you how many dumb Americans we have.

    I shudder to think what Romney would do to this country folks…..don’t
    allow him because I truly believe we will go down bad.

    Unemployment is down and new housing starts are surging to their highest level since July 2008.
    Let’s keep going forward!
    Vote for the man who cares about the middle class. President Obama!

  • Jen in Rehab

    ObamaCARE’s that’s why I am voting for him. He answered the questions with specifics, unlike the tired game show host Mitt LyingRomney HE NEVER ANSWERED THE QUSTIONs

  • Suzanne Cummings

    Mitt Romney will win in a landslide. Frank Luntz’ focus group of “undecideds” figured out they really liked Mitt and didn’t like O at all. O has NO AGENDA…like, what is his plan? He never says a thing. How can anyone support THAT? Ewwwwwwwwwwww.


    It’s too late for Obama. The first debate was the most watched and he did not take it seriously. Mitt Romney will be our next president. Thank you GOD. I pray for America the eagle that President Romney will keep us safe and get the jobs we need to get America back on track from the terrible policies that Obama put in place. America is number one. PLEASE VOTE FOR MITT ROMNEY. He truely loves America and will never apologize to the world and bow down to a Saudi King like Obama did a few years ago. America is the greatest country in the world. Don’t ever forget that.

    “Um, did you know that Joe Biden got FIVE MILITARY DEFERMENTS so he wouldn’t have to go to Viet nam?

    Was Obama in the military ? Was Bill Clinton? You know he dodged the draft, right?”

    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 DICK 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!

    Romney has nothing to offer the military but more wars for the enlisted and fewer benefits for those veterans who have served their country.

  • @109

    Romney still thinks that Russia is our greatest enemy. How can a man that CLUELESS and out ot touch POSSIBLY keep us safe?
    President Obama made us safer by getting rid of Bin Laden. Something that Romney, and Bush, thought wasn’t ‘that important’.

  • @113

    Hey moron. It’s called ‘moderating a debate’. Romney kept trying to interrupt HER, while she was doing her job. Romney also interrupted THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES! Romney was the disgrace, no one else.
    Or are you just butt-hurt because she wouldn’t let Romney get away with lying?
    yeah, that’s it I bt.

  • LOL

    why in the hell is everyone here for Obama. Obama can’t run on his record because it is crap. Things are NOT better than they were 4 years ago, they are even worse. People can keep blaming bush, but obama had 4 years to make some progress, but he went backward.

  • Melody

    Binders aside, I was offended at Mitt Romney’s reference to working women as being able to get home in time “to cook dinner”. It is perfectly in line with Mormon beliefs, that’s for sure. Btw, George Romney’s father had to flee the US for Mexico because he had a Binder Full of Wives! That is the only reason, Mitt Romney’s father was born in Mexico! I’m sorry but there just isn’t enough degrees of separation there for this woman.

    Keep watching NBC and sipping on that kool-aid, liberal…. The days are numbered! It won’t be long now and WE will have an American President who loves this Country and doesn’t want the government running our lives which, is exactly what Barry wants.

  • leelee

    Romney is so out of touch with social policy it’s ridiculous. Women get to go home early so they can cook dinner? Single family households are the reason for gun violence? Immigrants are only valuable serving in the military? Really?!? Good thing they didn’t bring up anything in the gay community because he would have gotten his ass handed to him.

  • MJ

    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.

  • jane

    Only a Democrat could prevent a depression, end a war, get bin Laden, double the Dow, repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, sign the Equal Pay act, lower unemployment then be told he can’t run on his record.

  • jane

    And from the Associated Press today: US home construction jumps 15% in September to 4-year high of 872,000, permits also up.

  • @jane

    that’s because the republican drones are too ignorant to understand that their media (fox “news”, hannity, limbaugh, etc) are LIARS.
    And for the idiot at 119…
    if Romney loves this country so much, why did he out-source so many AMERICAN jobs? why did he close so many AMERICAN companies? Why did he want the AMERICAN automobile companies to go bankrupt?
    And Romney doesn’t want government running our lives? How can you say that when he wants to be able to tell a woman what to do with her own body? if that isn’t government running our lives, then I don’t know what is.’

    We live in a Oligarchic Plutarchic Kleptocracy

    It is the way of goverments throughout history
    and it matters not who is President now
    Only to those who like to arrange deck chairs on the Titanic
    We will arrive at the very same place no matter who the prechosen leader is
    A slightly different path is only taken to satisfy the egos of hypnotized incurious tribe members

  • MJ

    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.

  • @132

    Any attack on an embassy, whether it is by a hate group, or from a protest, IS an act of terror. No double speak by either man.
    As to the rest of your comment….are you off your meds?

  • porquenon


    Oh, go back to World Net Daily since you obviously have such a tenuous grasp on reality and the facts.

    (Israel was not “taken out” of the DNC platform – the platform did not define Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel. The platform was later amended).

  • Debate – Julio

    This was the most interesting of all discussion. I thought Obama did well react and work harder. It was also essential thrust or the rudder which gave Biden his vice president in the discussion of vices.
