Candy trying to walk back her "correction" of Romney.

Too late, Candy.

We are willing to accept that Obama KNEW it was a terrorist attack and then spent the next 8 days lying to us that it was about a video.

The ugly truth is finally out!

So how many low info voters knew anything about that deal until tonight?

And I'm here to tell you, they didn't hear any right wing BS.

He didn't protect the first diplomats! Everyone already knew that it was a terrorist attact, his blaming the video was nothing more than a cover-up.

Well, town hall debates are always a wasted debate. Tonight was no different.

There were more unanswered questions at the end than were answered.

They repeatedly asked for more security in the months before the attack.

But if he had misquoted there would have been fault found too. He was damned either way. Tough spot
He had 24 hours to get up to snuff. Anything he might have said would have been forgiven in that amount of time.

But 14 days later still covering up what the State Department clearly knew within a 24 hour period is deceiving the American public for political gain. It's that plain and simple.

He did not blame the video. From day one he referred to it as a terrorist attack. Others in the administration were blaming the video. The terrorists are listening to everything our politicians are saying. The remaining American citizens in the Middle East are in grave danger due to Republicans constantly politicizing this event. It's time we put this tragic incident behind us and get back to the business of getting our President re-elected.

I and the rest of the country have their information directly from the State Department.

Obama and his "partners in political crime" were apparently the only ones who didn't get the memo.

Romney's only mistake was not reminding that audience member who asked the question that Bush was not the culprit in the housing market collapse nor was he responsible for the attacks on 9/11. Not only did Bush repeatedly try to warn Congress of the impending Fannie and Freddie crisis but Democrats increased the deficit by supporting both wars too.

For Obama to get his back up against the wall and act all self-righteous and everything for Romney even hinting he and his administration covered up the truth about the terrorist attacks will come back to haunt him big time.

It is an indisputable fact that children are better off when they have two parents involved in their lives. Studies show that a critical factor in healthy emotional development is the amount of contact that children have with both parents.
A two-parent home is the ideal but even close interaction with both parents in a divorce is crucial.
Robert Bauserman, PhD, of the Baltimore Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, reviewed 33 studies that examined 1,846 sole-custody and 814 joint-custody children. Bauserman found that children in joint-custody arrangements had fewer behavioral and emotional problems, higher self-esteem and better family relationships and school performance compared with those in sole-custody situations. The contact with both parents, he argues, is the key ingredient in kids' adjustment, he said.
There are always exceptions but it doesn't change the statistics.
Too many children today don't even know who their father is.
The question was about the assault weapons ban that expired. He didn't answer the question
