    Neither candidate offered anything new substantively.
    Neither candidate scored a knockout.

    Obama had to make up ground, but didn't.

    Romney won on his commanding style: Romney acted presidential, serious, professional and direct. Obama obeyed Romney's commands to sit down when told.

    Without a doubt the President. The fact checkers have tallied 11 blatant lies by Romney so far and more than 25 misrepresentations of material facts

    And as for energy Romney doesn't know jack

    He did not need the moderator to reword his questions or answers like she did for Obama.

    Well, even though they both did not offer anything new, I must say, that president Obama had a better hand this time by controlling the debate. However, we must pay attention more closely to the next debate. I am sure, Romney will win it since it is about foreign policy. He won first and will win the last debate. And as you all know, the one who wins first and last, always is a winner... let's hope, cause hope is all that we can do...

    Mr. Romney if you dont stand for something you'll fall for anything.You dont have any conviction.
    If your gonna run for President i suggest you practice what you preach.I would've been mortified if a family member of mine stood before 70 million people and lied,but not Romney. In the first debate Romney lied about everything he's been preaching about for last 2 years.What type of man does that ?....I'll tell ya what kind of man does that.A coward who cant run on his record and will lie,cheat or steal to win,oh wait a minute thats what W did LOL.Same old Republican BS.I think the American people are smater than that.So of course Obama won last night and he exposed Romney for what he really is.

    Romney Preaches about
    Over Turn Roe v Waid
    End Planned Parenthood
    Privatize Social Security
    Voucherize Medicare
    No taxes for the Rich
    War in Iran and Russia..........He's Crazy

    What bothers me even more is how easily and effortlessly Romney can lie and misrepresent in front of everybody. Obama hasn't exactly been our President (he served the banksters) for the last four years but, at least he is held somewhat in check by his base. The Bottom 47%. With Obama, there is still a glimmer of hope that he might throw a few crumbs to the social safety net.

    Romney, and his Mormon Mafia, OTOH, will FLAY We The Serfs alive with austerity and wars of capitalist imperialism. Romney openly declares himself to be the servant of the Plutocracy. If Romney wins, neocon talk radio will be filled with Schadenfreude as the last tattered shreds of the social safety net are taken from us.

    Sorry, it is IMPOSSIBLE to restore the Middle Class without restoring the New Deal economic architecture, and labor protections, that made it possible in the first place!

    A Republican Lady told me that she thought Romney/Ryan were 2 of the most dangerous men in America right now and shes right.

    It was much closer but on points and style Romney won. Obama did much better but even with the moderator backing up his lie about the Libya attack he still did not pull it out. At least he showed up and tried. His problem is his record is so pathetic that even to try to spin it in a positive light is a vertical climb. Romney tore him up when he staarted just naming off the failures one by one and ran out of time before he finished.

    Obama won only because Mittens kept bringing up tired platitudes and thoroughly discredited Republican neocon propaganda points. I guess that means Mitt lost more than Obama won.

    The fact that Mitt harped on the difference in the price of gas shows his utter lack of understanding as to how gas is priced, since Reagan deregulated that market and left us defenseless against the speculators and predatory capitalists who control the oil market. But, since Romney did work for a jackal outfit, like Bain Capital, he very likely knows how gas is priced vs. the actual cost of production and distribution. He also knows that the American Proles can barely think outside their corporate programming so, he was able to take advantage of that Straw Man argument.

    Obama could have destroyed Romney by resurrecting the spirit of FDR's State of the Union speech in January 1944, where he proposes his Economic Bill of Rights! Of course, Obama doesn't dare stray outside the narrow envelope of approved subject material, lest the conspiracy between the two parties against We The Serfs be exposed.

    Obama has the same puppet masters that Lord Bush and Viceroy Cheney had. But, he doesn't dare risk exposing that by bringing up the mess he inherited from the Bush Crime Syndicate, which also carried...

Willard the Republican Rat has plenty of embarrassing skeletons that he doesn't want exposed, either! All of the crap he claims he did has so much backstory that all he can do is throw it out and keep going so you don't think about it.

    All in all, the messy coalition of the Bottom 47%, wannabe Muslims, and poverty pimps behind Obama are FAR LESS DANGEROUS than the polished and well-oiled Mormon Mafia machine behind Romney.

    oh you are in need of hearing aids and glasses I guess - and do you mean like when Candy Crowley said the president did say terrorist? Yeah she is taking huge heat for this and now she has admitted she was wrong - plus if you know how to google, you should really take the time to look up the transcript of what he said for yourself before you go laughing at something that turns out to be a BIG TIME LIE - you just make yourself look foolish.

    Safari, don't waste you time with 'Dweezle Zappa', he's another burned-out California-entitlement-sucker, envious of anyone (save Hollywood bazillionaires) making a dime more than him...without Obama, 'Dweezle' fades away.

    The transcript says "ACT OF TERROR" which is what she said it did, as Obama said it did.

    No lie, there.

    lol..if you listen closely you can hear Gore's liberal comrade pundits in the background making agreeing "noises" with Gore's altitude "analysis" as to why the air in CO might have contributed to Obama's lack luster debate "performance" lol One a former Governor of Michigan(Jennifer Granholm) who made a name/fool of herself nationally this year at the DNC, the other a former D list comedian(now a "serious" news "analyst" on Current TV lol)
