Shame, the real Barry Sorento finally came out. It's amazing what the lack of a teleprompter causes, simply amazing. Obama proved that he's a one trick pony. This performance explains the Middle East, Unemployment, the debt, no leadership, nothing being done, a rudderless ship of state. Eastwood was right, "fire him", hire Romney, let's get things fixed.

Romney won the debate but it was not due to the facts he presented.

Romney stated he was going to make cuts of 20% for everyone and still keep the tax cuts for the top dogs. That comes to 5 Trillion. At the debate, he denied saying that. Two weeks ago at AARP, Ryan stated Medicare would end. At the debate, Romney denied it, and said he would make Medicare stronger.

Romney said no school budgets would be cut but he was on TV telling teachers 4 months ago there would be numerous cuts. Romney said he would remove those regulations for the banks that got us in this mess. At the debate he said he would keep regulations.

At the debate, he said he worked with Democrats to get the healthcare through in his State. What he showed there is that a Republican can work with Democrats and get things done. Romney did NOT have to work with the TEA PARTY. Totally different scenario’s.

Another debate lie is that Romney’s healthcare plan covers pre-existing conditions. A member of this staff said AFTER the debate that simply was not true. His plan actually leaves out 86 million people and a good share of them Seniors.

I can understand Obama standing there stunned. So was I hearing this out of Romneys mouth. Not one thing he said is what he's said for the last year.

I saw Romney's cheat sheet . Who carries a hanky in their right hand pants pocket , blindsides the camera angle ,and spreads it out like a communion cloth on the podium ?

Not one word about the fiscal cliff and the 177,000 government workers that will be losing their jobs . We should only be so lucky ! It can only get better next week when Romney takes Christie to win votes in the must win state Ohio . New jersey will probably get better if Christie stays there. Hey Chris , you're the governor of Jersey ? Remember ? You have a job there .

You gotta get around a little bit more and quit trying to keep up with what these Harvard educated idiots are lying through their teeth about . It's all an EGO trip , money control and do nothing job. If any of them were looking out for you we wouldn't be in the mess we are in.

If he had notes on the podium, why would he need them on his hanky?

I don't get it either . I don't like the debates . One of them shouldn't have gone ? There were papers on the podium beside the hanky in his right hand front pocket . It's on TV for everyone to see .

The feds don't set school budgets.

The Tea Party is not a political party.

Medicare will end if nothing is done to save it. Stealing 800 billion from it for Obamacare sure didn't help.

Obama is a very weak leader which is why Republicans have walked all over him for the past 4 years. Romney just bullied Obama like Republicans have been doing to him from day one.
