Do you think Mitt Romney was disrespectful to the President during the debate?
Yes. I think when he said "you'll get your chance" it was a little overboard. There was a better way to express that. After all, like him or not, he IS the President.
No, Romney was right to stop Obama from interrupting him so that he can get a word in edgewise. Between Crowley and Obama doubleteaming him he had a harder time getting his answer and rebuttal out and did a good job in that situation.
Is that doubleteaming when two people catch him in a lie instead of one? Obama very politely looked at Romney and said, "Continue please" Romney promptly put his foot in his mouth. Whose fault is that?
Cassie - Not sure I agree with that observation but appreciate your comments.
Even Crowley admitted that Romney was right. Crowley interrupted Romney more times and allowed Obama not to answer the Libya question and gave Obama more time to answer. That you don't see this shows your partisanship.
Rather than point at the moderator, I look at the reaction of Romney being interupted. He paniced and stuttered. If that's his reaction in front of Candy Crowley, what will it be sitting across the table from a Muslim extremist? Rules will not apply.
On the surface, I'd say Yes. But it's a debate. Mitt Romney was debating the man, not the office of president. Mitt had to look at Obama as his opponent, not his superior. For Mitt to have to qualify his answers as to being respectful or not, would not provide a level playing field for the debate. Also, you can't mistake disrespect for being assertive. The way Romney treated Pres. Obama was assertive. The way he treated Candy Crowley, was disrespect.

He is clearly a pathological and habitual liar. He has poor control over his explosive temper. He giggles when confronted about disturbing behavior he has done in the past. Who is stupid enough to vote for a man who has poor self control, an explosive temper, and is unable to tell the truth....

Mitt Romney Has a 20 Point Lead in South Carolina. Is the GOPNomination Over? I thought that Romney would take New Hampshire, then lose some southern states, and leave the door open for someone else to come from behind. But it's now looking like Romney will roll to a GOP...

The man is truly embarrassing,he is incapable of answering a single question on any topic because of the fear of the extreme right which makes him give nonsensical answers and look like a mumbling fool when asked even the simplest of questions.
