This is what viewers saw

Wah, I struggled for 4 years, I, me, struggled, I missed my golf appointments, I missed my dinners with my family, I didn't brew beer to keep entertained, you don't understand how boring it is being in the WH, I had to fly out on AF1 often, the View and Lettermen needed me to boost their ratings and I my votes, I struggled every morning, noon and night to think HOW DO I CREATE JOBS, I said I know I'll just pump out 800 thousand new business regulations and shut down energy jobs but give stimulus to poor solar energy bets, oh but I struggled, ask Moochelle how hard I struggle there were tears in my eyes, and I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO QUITTING IN 4 YEARS SO I DON'T HAVE TO SPEND MY ANNIVERSARY WITH DARLING MICHELLE WITH 40 MILLIONS AMERICANS INSTEAD.

If the job is such a struggle, then quit Barack. Otherwise, shut up. We've HAD QUITE ENOUGH OF YOU AND MOOCHELLE FOR 4 YEARS TOO.

The Honorable Mitt Romney vs islamofascist Hussein Obama, was like Albert Einstein vs Fred Flintstone.

67 Million viewers saw Barrack HUSSEIN Obama being torn to shreds.

Hussein Obama covered his lies with more lies and it just snowballed until he buried himself.

Without a pepared speech AND without a teleprompter, Hussein Obama proved himself totally lost.
He brought a spear to a gunfight.

Mitt Romney had great style, but no substance. He lied his way right through the debate. He is such a filthy liar, it's pathetic, and it is all coming out in the media. Unless people are stupid, they should think back to all he has proposed over the past 18 month. Romney does plan to give a 20% tax decrease to the very wealthy (which will amount to 4.6 trillion dollars (rounded up this comes to 5 trillion dollars.He has no intention of protecting people with pre-existing medical conditions. He has no intention of helping seniors. He and Ryan plan to dismantle Social Security and medicare. He has no plans of trying to reduce interest rates on student loans. His plan will ADD to the deficit unless he can find revenue to make up for the tax breads on the rich. The revenue will come off the backs of the middle class in the form of loss of tax credits, child care tax credits, mortgage interest tax deductions, and increased costs for licenses of all kinds, and more. I can't trust a man who will "change" his policies time and time again so he can deceive his audience just to get elected. If Romney gets in office, he will destroy this country as he destroyed the economy of Massachusetts when he was Governor. If people want to believe Romney's lies, if they want to believe the perception of the man they think they "see", then they are blind and choose to remain so. Go ahead and vote for the liars Romney and Ryan. Obama and Biden just might win the election in spite of you and all those who choose to be blinded by a fast-talking, ruthless, liar who cares nothing for the 47% and destroyed peoples jobs and lives when involved with Bain and made millions for himself.

Give Obama a break. He had to debate his failures. The only jobs he created were government,$4 gas, 20% increase in food prices, insurance costs up, he had no clue what happened in Syria, he's getting us into a war in Africa, Iran and Egypt. The black community has seen through him. His best explanation is, after almost 4 years, Bush did it. Frankly, I'm surprised he showed up.

Willard is a LIAR! Politically aware people were astounded by his word for word retread of reagan's words from one of the Carter debates. We reject LIARS! Next Thursday, we'll count the lies from Lying Ryan.

Check out the statements made by Romney and Ryan over the course of their campaigns. No one speaks about Romney's record as Governor of Massachusetts ... check it out. He left the Masschusett's economy in a shambles. Do the research. Romney is a liar and, therefore, cannot be trusted by the American people.

You're the one needing to stop lying to yourself. It is well established, that Massachusetts has the number one school system in the nation, that Romney was capable of working with a overwhelmingly Democrat legislature to the betterment of MA and that the people of MA are living a remarkably generalized advanced wealth deficient of only the extreme violence and rabble common to Obama's cities of drug havens and rip-off artists. MA roads are well kept, their communities safe, their industry intact and thriving. They've retained a place for the inherited wealth Socialist elitists and their queers and the entrepreneurs capable of feeding their worthless asses.

Sorry, but what exists Massachusetts right now was not the case when Governor Romney left office. It was a disaster. The Governor that succeeded him was the person that turned Massachusetts around and helped to make it what it is today.
