Obama was very mean, scattered, pensive, bitter, small-thinking and was very petty. Obama did not look like a leader I could trust. He acted like a spoiled child with ADHD. Obama didn't appear presidential, nor did he behave like a leader I could trust. He has lies to me too much and made too many mistakes and was apart of too many scandals. It's hard to imagine how any informed, thinking person could ever re-elect him. Mitt Romney was clear thinking, quick on his feet, and appeared IN-COMMAND on every subject thrown at him. Romney ran circles around Obama's lack of knowledge and lack of experience in fixing the economy. The Majority of Americans are never GOING TO BE MOVED BY THE YELLOW JOURNALISM and phony press releases of the government-run media.

When Romney first heard the term Romnesia, he thought it was a country in South Africa.

Obama was quite the actor. He could have saved us some time and just said; everything, the economy, foreign policy, unemployment, Benghazi was somebody else’s fault. And, this time, I promise to keep my promises - trust me.

At least he knows how many ststes are in the Union. With all the name changing in South Africa it is possible a country could be named romnesia, but there have only been 50 states for approx. 50 years.

President Obama demonstrated how his leadership has kept the U.S. safe over the past four years, during he hottest and most violent period in the Middle East. Had he not been aggressive in this debate, all you Romneyites would have said he was weak and Romney was strong. Apparently, it's okay with you when Romney attacks like a "pit bull", but when Obama plays the same card both Romney and his supporters can't take the heat. Give me a break! Romney had nothing new to offer. As for being able to navigate foreign politics .. he demonstrated his failure while making trips to Britain and Israel. President Obama is Commander in Chief. All the world knows this and respects him for it.

"We also have fewer horses and bayonets".
Romney won the presidential debate by looking presidential. Obama had a painful case of Biden's smile
By Tim Stanley US politics Last updated: October 23rd, 2012

Romney won the third presidential debate – and how he did it was encapsulated in a single exchange. The candidates were discussing military spending and Romney had just accused Obama of making harmful cutbacks. The President wheeled out what must have seemed like a great, pre-planned zinger:“I think Governor Romney maybe hasn't spent enough time looking at how our military works. You mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changed.” The audience laughed, Obama laughed, I laughed. It was funny.
But here’s why it was also a vote loser. For a start, Twitter immediately lit up with examples of how the US Army does still use horses and bayonets (horses were used during the invasion of Afghanistan). More importantly, this was one example of many in which the President insulted, patronized and mocked his opponent rather than put across a constructive argument. His performance was rude and unpresidential. Obama seemed to have a touch of the Bidens, wriggling about in his chair, waving his hands dismissively and always – always – smirking in Romney’s direction. By contrast, Romney sucked up the abuse and retained a rigid poker face all night. He looked like a Commander in Chief; Obama looked like a lawyer. Who would you rather vote for?

Aside from the horses and bayonets moment, this was essentially a debate without incident. Part of the fault was the format. It’s interesting to note that Romney won the first debate while standing up and Obama did better in the second when walking around. But when both men were forced to sit for 90 minutes, the energy was inevitably reduced and neither broke through the fourth wall convincingly. Romney had a slight edge because he didn’t use his hands so much: Obama blew his closing statements by developing ultra-energetic conjurer’s hands (“Look at the hands, not at the cards, look at the hands…”)

1. KUDOS to Bob Scheiffer! He was a MODERATOR!

2. Debate goes to Obama

3. Mitt Romney displayed broad knowledge of foreign policy.

4. People will not vote based on a foreign policy, they will vote based on the economy.

5. Everyone agrees that a strong America, a strong economy makes for powerful leadership.

6. Mitt Romney has the qualities of leadership: the ability to work with all, the knowledge of how to turn businesses around, the compassion for people - it's Romney, not Obama, who implemented healthcare for all, who created scholarships for students, who knows how to balance a budget.

There is no other choice than Mitt Romney.

Put America on the path to a stronger America.

VOTE FOR ROMNEY!
