    Obama looks clueless - Romney is killing it. I thought Obama was going to win again but not now. He's Jimmy Carter.

    He's not "winning" because romney won't let anyone else talk! Lol. I think the next debate will be more "real".

    I hate to say it, but he's actually beating Obama here. Obama seems to be stumbling a lot in this debate. It sucks. I hate Romney, but I can acknowledge he's debating a lot better here.

    Romney keeps lying and Obama is too weak to call him on it.

    I feel bad for Jim Lehrer, he just isn't assertive enough to moderate these two.

    I laughed my ass off with joy when Obama came out with this one for Romney, "It's my belief that Gov. Romney doesn't possess the ability to say no to the more extremists within his own party."

    Fucking owned!!! :lol:

    To be honest, people will probably not be swayed at all by these debates. That being said, the big loser tonight was Jim Lehrer.


    Also, Big Bird.

    Really disappointed with Obama tonight. Not that he didn't say the right things, but that his delivery was lacklustre and he could have been far harder on Romney. I was worried this might happen: everyone's been so used to "Romneyshambles" that a simply competent performance looks like a win.

    Even the dems on TV are saying Romney out performed Obama tonight.
    Quite surprised that Obama was as flat as he was
    good night for Romney but I doubt it will make a difference.
    I'm sure we will see a much more aggressive Obama in round 2.

    I thought Obama was gonna walk circles around Romney

    If you ask me this debate was pretty embarrassing on both sides

    Romney was just angrier when he opened his mouth. That doesn't make somebody a better debater.

    That was kind of funny when Romney claimed the US healthcare system produced the healthiest people in the world. WTF. :lol:

    I find it extremely disheartening that even NPR is calling the debate for Romney, simply because he was aggressive and that's all voters will notice. It was frantic, defensive energy with no basis in factual reality.

    Obama was confident and collected, whereas Romney had to rudely interrupt the awful mediator just to rebuke like the condescending asshole he is.

    How the fuck is that presidential? Why are we talking about how many notes Obama took instead of Romney's inability to take a punch like a grown up?

    Romney didn't let up because every word he says is rehearsed garbage designed to display confidence. Obama actually thinks as he talks, and that's a bad thing? :wallbash:

    Obama will come back learning that you can't debate like a grown up with an asshole like Romney, and hopefully next time the moderator says "Let's not, you rude motherfucker" quite more often.

    :2c:

    I liked Romney, his plan to speed up our collapse into bankruptcy seemed much more effective then Obama's plan to silly plan to slightly increase our speed.

    Edit: The like showed up after a restarted my browser
