Yeah baby!

Here it comes and the BS Lies from the Kommie!

Romney wanted to shut down Detroit. FUBO

I’ll say one thing, he did come out swinging.

I think he will get winded towards the end. He ain’t got enough banked to go the distance and will start to suffer from the anxiety of “needing to perform”.

Sure....Barry opened federal lands....two permits in a year for Gulf drilling after the spill, and shutting most of Alaska last week. Romney better know this fact.

He can’t go the long-haul.
McCain gave him a pass because McCain is an Affirmative Action stooge. Romney treats him like an equal and that is why Obama is having such a hard time. He’s only ever excelled in a stacked environment and he enjoyed the leg up.

Romney on fire. Shutting down Obama and Crowley who are double teaming him. There's going to be a lot of fact checking at the end of this debate. You really get the sense that Obama is lying out his teeth.

BANKRUPT BARRY is going to continue calling Mitt a liar and I love Mitt calling him out on it and stepping right into him.

Wah! WAh! Wah! It’s not true! It’s not true! It’s not true!

Second nickname.

“BANKRUPT BARRY”

BO’s voice is very high pitched (as if he’s very nervous.) Mitt has kept his voice modulated.

Obama is coming off like a jerk and is doing worse than the last debate.

The blaming, lies, demonization and interruptions aren’t helping him either.

Obama’s on the offensive trying a few tricks but Romney is definitely better, He is smooth and looks presidential.

Obama’s voice is raising in pitch. He's worried.

I LOVED the line about O prosecuting oil company executives for killing 25 birds, it was a great one delivered well.

MR definitely debates better than Ryan,

You are an old man around here. It happens.

Gotta cut this M^(*^F^*&(^(R out from the knees! He keeps chewing up the time clock when he gets up there. Which may be fine, since he doesn’t realize how to dress something in a black dress and pearls cuz that’s enough.

When Obama brought up that fantasy investment, he basically described ObamaCare, and the way the Dems rammed it through Congress without knowing what was in it.

Obama is blinking a lot. He appears tired again and reaching back to his campaign rhetoric again with the loud MLK voice.

Is he throwing this on purpose? Why is he yelling? These people are ten feet away from him.

It’s still tight.

Mitt is having to debate two opponents, again. Crowley has cut him off three times already.

Ugh, I am soo tired of Obama not understanding what top-down means, and misusing it in his interpretation of top-down economics regarding tax cuts....

On a side note, I wish Romney would have said that there is no pay inequality when you take into account women choosing to leave, men taking riskier jobs overall, and women getting pregnant and leaving. I’m definitely voting against O this election, but too many times, Romney is accepting the liberal premise behind some of the questions.

After five minutes I wanted to scream.
obama is giving stump speech answers and Romney is actually answering the questions asked.

About to find out how well Mitt can handle the War on women/Affirmative Action question......

He had a solid response but the communist was able to deflect the impact to some degree.
