    I live in Nassau County and gas hasn’t been $1.86 a gallon here in a LONG LONG time, much longer than 4 years ago.

    When Obama talks about the people who work for him, the people who died in Libya…when he talked about how he would find who was responsible…you could see the emotion in his face. You could tell he felt that loss, the loss of those families, personally.  It was not a political agenda item to him–it was personal.  

    For Romney, it was just a way to stick it to the President.

    I think Obama definitely took this one.

     

    The best quote of the night by far was Romney’s “binders full of women”.  He botched up that entire answer BIG time.  First saying that when his advisors brought him resumes they were all men because those were the people who were qualified, so he needed women to balance it out, so they brought him “binders full of women”.  I don’t don’t think saying that he added women to his team who were less qualified than the men just to even it out was quite the message he was hoping for…

    Whomever you’re convinced to vote for. It’s subjective.

    Obama, especially when he said women’s issues are family issues.

    My favorite line was Romney saying, “I had a binder full of women!”

    Oh just saw that’s what Tigrrlily04 said! Good call!

    Favorite line – Obama KILLING IT in his last segment on the 47% issue – making it clear that we just can’t have a president who views with utter contempt people like students, vets, retirees, people who work 2 jobs just to make it by.

    Obama definitely won this one.  Romney still isn’t explaining how he plans on doing things.  He just says he plans to.  It’s scary that people are so accepting of that.

    I am really intrigued to learn why is it only Obama and Romney involved in these debates and no representatives from the remaining parties.  OK the Libertarian, Green or any other party won’t win enough votes to enter the White House, but by not being present in these debates, the ones who are loosing out are you, the US citizens.  Having the other parties in there would add a dimension to these debates that should not be missed.  More questions raised, and the debate would be less of a popularity contest of who’se wife looks purrtier in their nice pink dresses, or who was throwing the biggest insults, and more about who has the balls to stand up and back their beliefs without turning it into a cheap underhand comments to draw attention away from those yucky tricky questions.

    @Cariad:  Jill Stein and her VP Cand were arrested just prior to the debate. They attempted a sit in at the auditorium.

    @tksjewelry:  I just had a read through some of the news reports.  I agree wholeheartedly with her, she should be involved in the debate.  US citizens are not little children who need Supernanny to give them a choice between peas or carrots, and should not be treated as such.  All those running should be up there!

    @Cariad:  I appreciate the idea, but I feel it would draw the focus away from the candidates who are actually in the running. It was already a lot to keep up with, and they have such limited time. I would have LOVED to have heard more from both candidates, but they only had around an hour and a half. Add some more people in there? It’d have to be MUCH longer, or we’d hear less.

    @Baimee:  Or maybe you’d hear less BS if more were involved? Everyone would be so much more focused on getting their points across instead of making the other person look stupid.
