    I will confess I stopped paying attention to the debate about half way through. Ugg, I wish there was someone else to vote for.

    Mitt wasn't on his game at all.

    It obviously didn't change who I was voting for.

    It was on in my house but i wasn't really paying attention. Seamus and I agreed that i think we are both debated out. Its the only one that i really missed....I'll have to read up today. (I watched the 2nd presidential debate even though i didn't discuss here, i was on a business trip at the time)

    As I've said before, I think it's generally hard to declare a clear winner and loser in most debates. I will say that I enjoyed Obama's performance more, but I completely recognize that is because I already like and support Obama.

    I didn't watch much of it because it was on while I was getting Weston to bed, and then we were flipping back & forth with the Giants game. I think Obama did great, and once again I was unimpressed with Romney. And Romney got four "pants on fire" ratings by the fact-checkers, which I really think people need to hold him accountable for all the lies he's telling, which coupled with his complete lack of details about what he plans to do, is so scary. I can't believe this guy even has a chance, and that shows just how utterly stupid and/or blinded-by-religion the American people have gotten.

    Also, now having seen Romney debate again with an older, male moderator, I'm really steamed with the disrespectful way he treated Candy Crowley, interrupting her all the time, failing to shut up when she called time, and he didn't do that at all with the moderator last night. That confirms for me what he *really* thinks about women.

    I think Romney accomplished the goal he set which was to steer things back to the economy as much as possible. I think Obama looked like a petulant child trying to be sarcastic and act like he knows everything, especially with the horses and bayonet remark. The funny thing is that the military still do have bayonets and horses.

    And the apology tour is a matter of opinion. I think he WAS apoligizing for America.

    Yeah, please explain how "steering things back to the economy" was a good thing when this was supposed to be a debate about foreign policy. It just made Romney look like he'd studied the wrong crib notes. Not to mention that a huge part of the problems with the economy is that the Republican Congress refused to work with Obama. So you're creating the mess in the first place, then saying Obama shouldn't be President because of the this big mess, and then you try to turn the focus of a foreign policy debate back to the failed economy that you refuse to acknowledge your part in creating. Nice try.

    Of course. It is all because the Republican Congress which has only been in place for the last 2 years, but the Democratic congress that was in place the 4 years before that had nothing to do with it right?

    I agree with you, except the woman thing. Romney did it incessantly to Lehrer...enough for me to already mention it a couple of times in the other debate threads. And he does it non-stop to Obama too.

    I mean...not that I feel like he's got my back as a woman, but if I think he doesn't, it wasn't because of his interrupt-itis.
