    Romney. Obama was rude by looking down at his notes when Romney addressed him. Barack seemed unprofessional.

    I kind of thought it was boring and they both were lackluster. Learned nothing new really! If i had to vote I would say they tied. I think Romney came across a little more down to earth, than in the past and President Obama was not as exuberant as usual. I would rather see how they would do answering questions from the public!

    Romney had his smile on the whole time which made him look more personable.  Obama was frowning and looking down and appeared to add approval by nodding his head yes to whatever Romney said.  Romney attacked and Obama defended.  Romney spoke in generalities about what he what liked to do if he were president and Obama spoke in specifics about what is still left to do in his agenda.Obama's specifics were much harder to grasp, but were much more substantive.

    There is much spin going on today about Obama needing a teleprompter in order to speak, but I have seen him in many interviews and he does just fine...So who won?  It depends on ones perception. Romney won for his attacks.  Obama won for speaking about specific points, but lost for not smiling.

    Mitt Romney - he received the higher grade last night.  He was more presidential and had more factual information as I heard on NPR this morning and I agree.

      davk, please refrain from personal attacks against the other commenters.  We don't need to stoop to the level of the politicians in this country and their handlers/talking heads that propagate divisiveness and the polarization of us to make money.

    Romney won hands down. Finest debate performance I have ever seen. It could be a game changer. The issue is: how many undecideds from Florida and Ohio watched.

    I think Big Bird was the winner. He's more popular then ever, has gained millions of new fans and has his own Twitter account. Big Bird must be saved.

    Obama won. He speaks to thinking people. Mittens speaks to fantasy-land. Pssssst: If you make medicare a voucher system, they will take people who choose a voucher's money out of the pool. This will mean, YET AGAIN, that only those with money will be able to afford care.Same way as you cut school financial aid, only those whose parents have $$ can go to college.
    Why does Sheldon deserve another tax cut? WHY? Mitt will pay 0% with Ryan's plan. Who will pay for the up-keep of America?
    Those withless.Us thinking people. The fantasy thinkers will be long gone. No patriotism for America, only for their wallets.
    Ask the Bushes. They own a compound in Paraguya. How come? Cheney buying up Dubai. Patriotism? Romney wants your kids to die for another country.Again.Sorry--these people are not patriots, and they need to go."I calls em as I sees em." --Popeye

    I think Romney won, hands down. 

    He was more confident and showed how a true leader acts in front of the American people.  Like anyone applying for a job, he showed he wanted it more, showed more passion, had the respect to look Obama in the face each time he answered,  and although we may not agree with everything he says, I believe he will represent and respect our country more than Obama has.

    I was pretty shocked to see Obama so uninterested in being there.  This was a great opportunity to show what he is made of since the majority of the nation was watching the debate.  He was more interested in his anniversary and getting out of there.  In my opinion, he seemed annoyed and bored to have to be answering to the American people on why he wants us to reelect him. 

    Being President of the United States is an honor and Obama demonstrated he pretty much didn't care about proving himself to the people.  As soon as the debate was over, he was outta there (probably celebrating his anniversary, a major priority on such a critical night).  At this point, I think he just care about being the winner.

      If it's such an honor, why do the Republicans show him no respect?

    Who won? The Corporate Party!

    Obamney = Rombama.

    It's now a felony to protest what the government does. Ten years in prison for speaking out. For now, the Internet is free, but the assaults on that last bastion of free speech continue. SOPA, PIPA, CISPA, TPP and more.

    And the national debt is accelerating past $16 Trillion toward oblivion. The chaos created by the popping of that bubble will leave only the Bankers and their friends standing, picking up the pieces of America for free.

    Don't believe it?

    Check out these 2 videos which prove that both halves of the Corporate Party presidential conventions have eliminated voting and Roberts Rules of Order.
