Romney's body language tells me all I need to know about his inner personality and the kind of man he is. In so many ways, Mitt Romney's personality, his lack of feelings, regard or empathy for his fellow Americans and his internal morals (or lack thereof) reminds me of Richard Nixon (yes, I am old enough to remember Nixon's presidency and impeachment). This man does NOT appear comfortable in public and is  Read More...

Just as in the last debate, Robme will hurl unsubstantiated rubbish and hope, like last debate, some of it sticks.

Making up talking points that sound plausible is no substitute for the truth.....this is, and has been the Knuckleheads' plan from the beginning.

They know nothing of the economy or foreign policy, and their foremost agenda are the attacks on healthcare, social security, and women's rights!

Most of the people commenting on who actually won the debate has never been to or participated in a REAL debate.....In debates clubs be it High School or College....Lying is an automatic disqualification.

Debates are suppose to be on substantive information other wise you have a Liars fest, which is a different thing all together...

The Pundits and Media who gave Mitt the win on style are clueless and the people who gave Mitt the win on style and lies are even more clueless....

It's hard to get that point across on a form like this because of the uninformed people who think OPINIONS and FACTUAL INFO are equal....

Then, I guess, both candidates would have been disqualified.

Cassie, thank you for your clarity on this!

I have always thought Obama conducted himself properly in the first debate,showing poise and composure!

Message to Obama et al: You can't defend something that's indefensible.

That's why he has to go after Romney because Romney's positions are totally indefensible.

"We should stand up to China for cheating" says Flippin' Mittens. Mean while, back in the real world from Freeport IL, at a Bain Capital Company called Sensata Technologies, Bain Capital is shipping 175 good paying non union manufacturing jobs to China. Any hypocracy here?

I remember reading here that the town hall format is Obama's forte, I just hope he calls out Romney, but I feel he'll be too nice

Maybe there is a nice way to call Romney out

Do you think Obama will win the debate this time, even though I like him, last time was atrocious, and the voters fell for it, the polls in several swing states are for romney to win

The facts will do just fine and making him explain, in detail, will also work. Since this debate is a town hall format, the Moderate Mitt is the one who has to show up. This Moderate Mitt is what won the first debate and is the one most likely to sell as opposed to the "Severely Conservative" Mitt. Unfortunately, those moderate positions aren't what Flippin' Mittens is really all about. His extreme right wing will see to that should he be elected. All Obama has to do is hold this man accountable. Remind folks that positions taken in the first debate were almost immediately repudiated by his campaign and make him present real facts and figures complete with specifics on how he's going to get there.

Obama needs to mention these types of points. He needs to bring it this time, or he's through. I know he's the first black president, but that doesn't mean that he needs to be mild and meek while Romney lies like he did at the last debate.

There needs to be some basic fact-checking on various republican and Romney-Ryan talking points.

The deficit under Obama is decreasing, despite what republicans say.

http://maddowblog.msnbc.com/_news/2012/10/12/14399005-us-budget-deficit-shrinks-by-over-200-billion-reaches-4-year-low?lite

Medicare, while in need of some cost adjustsments, is not nearly in as dire a shape as republicans would have us believe.

Who are you going to believe...Medicare trustees or gop hacks?

http://www.healthbeatblog.com/2011/05/the-medicare-crisis-a-shaggy-wolf-story-/

Private health insurance premiums are rising FASTER than are the premiums on Medicare(part B).

Below is a nice piece debunking 4 lies the rightwing likes to make about Obamacare and government spending.

Has romney ever mentioned the FACT that his father was on WELFARE?.....

he looks down and judges those who need as his mother puts it "a helping hand".. but fails to mention that he was a WELFARE baby!...

romney is like an affirmative action recipient..... wants the programmed abolished after they have reaped all the benefits!...

be blessed..
08:41 AM on 10/14/2012
and ryan aka Mr. Bean used social security checks to pay for his college education... and you know if he was using SS to pay for his college he also was using PELL and TAP... another form of WELFARE....

so why now that he has reaped the benefits of those programs .. does he want to get rid of it?....

be blessed..

Practice saying this Mr.President......Mr .Romney,did you participate in the amnesty program offered by the IRS in regards to your illegal tax avoidance scheme with your off shore accounts?

If the answer is "no" follow up question......Then what is it in your tax returns that is so horrible you do not trust the American people to understand?

Why did your father believe that a candidate should disclose at least ten years of returns as part of the vetting process to run for POTUS and do you agree with him that producing only a few allows for deception? Was your father stu.pid ?

obama the consummate campaigner never had time to lead the country , so it's back to cramming to appear presidential ....

Didn't work the first time , won't work now either obama .... clear out that desk and make room for a real knowledgeable leader

Romney will save this country from obama's destructive ways
09:11 AM on 10/14/2012
I am not sure that Romney will save USA. He will continue at the Point where Bush jr. and the Rebublicans stopped. That means he will destroy US economy.

The Lame Stream Media is having a tough time with Benghazi-Gate.

But how can they report on it when their newest champion declared it over and won.They are having a hard time now that he has been Fact Checked.

Biden: “There have been more than two dozen cases of green-on-blue where Americans have been killed.”

Fifty-two International Security Assistance Force members have been killed in 36 insider, or so called “green-on-blue,” attacks this year alone. According to statistics compiled by the New Delhi- based Institute for Conflict Management, 116 coalition fatalities in 69 such incidents have been recorded since the beginning of 2009.

They can't make the Administation look bad when they are doing the work for them.

At ages 75 and 78 Schiffer and Lehr are unlikely to live another four years. It is ridiculous that we have old men who are well past their prime moderating presidential debates.

""It's time for us to stand up to China for their cheating," Romney declared. "It's got to stop."

More people would rather Romney stand up to VOTER SUPPRESSION right here in the good'ol USA.

IT'S GOT TO STOP! and someone, the moderator, a voter, or the president himself must make Romney own up to this REPUBLICAN scandal during this debate..and before this election.

Obama prepares for a week on how to be president. Who do you blame for failed policies? What department do you blame for libya? Biden seem to blame others for Libya no one told the president that there was a problems in Libya. The media does not report on Libya, I guess 4 dead in Libya because of no security does not warrant a story. I guess the adminstration lying from the beginning does not either. After all the lies from this adminstration all I see is Romney lied. I geuss if the media does not report Obama and Bidens lies no one will know how they lied. Does the media check with Obama before they report a story?

Impressive to see how Republicans not only lie with impunity, but create their own alternative reality to cover up for their own poor character. I mean, it really is impressive.
09:59 AM on 10/14/2012
There are obvious communication break downs in the Obama administration related to the Libya security failure which really makes me question this administrations ability to handle an even larger security crisis not to mention foreign policy matters.
