Jim Lehrer looks and sounds like he is one step away from the old folks home.

He can’t control his agenda. Good for us.

Zero pauses and stutters.

Lehrer provides an assist, “Now Mr President, you said in order to get the job done it’s got to be balanced.”

proud American: "Romney is doing very well—and Obama looks like a frightened little boy."

I hope you are right! Obama:"Social security is sturcturally sound". He really said that? He should be made to take it back!

Zi ppee looks to Jim Lehrer with fascination and eagerness as if to say "I'm following the rules here".

Now Obama reciting his early childhood biography to burn up 45 seconds of his social security question, almost guaranteeing he will run out of time before he answers the question in detail.

Romney barely eeks out round 2. Forceful ‘gotcha’ with nailing 0bama on tax breaks; Obama’s 90 Billion in tax breaks for failed green projects after 0bama b!tched about big oil getting 2.8 Billion in tax breaks. Way to go, Romney!

Romney in command of the debate and the facts

I liked the way Romney handled the issue over who got to have the LAST WORD. Obama went first on the first question, meaning Romney should end up being the last one to rebut.

Obama implied because he was President, he was going to override protocol and get in the last word.

Romney trumped him by overriding that, and got in the last word, as was per the 'order'. THAT'S THE GUY I WANT FOR PRESIDENT.

All those who claimed Romney would puss out during the debate , are getting a big surprise. He even told them the PBS would not be funded (so liberally) due to the budget problems. WAY TO GO MITT!

Obama just through aircraft manufacturer employees under the bus when he said that “If you own a corporate jet you should have to pay more taxes.”

Does President Obama have something against the men and women who build business jets? Because he is harming them — not fat-cat CEOs — in targeting and bad-mouthing jet ownership.

Romney should have mentioned that about 70% of the welfare budget stays in government to pay bureaucrats instead of helping the poor.

Yup. He’s deliberately trying to help obama make his points! And he keeps interrupting Romney and cutting him off while letting obama go on and on and on. This is outrageous, although expected.

He just did it again, helping obama make his point! This is nuts!!!

The biggest thing here to me is that ROMNEY looks more in command, seems like a President and more vibrant, even though he is older and against a sitting President.

That alone is HUGE to the casual observers, and even makes a subconscious difference to the media.

Romney’s attacking Big Bird! He just lost the 2-10 years of age vote.

LOL!

Obama just referred to tax breaks for corporate jets. I hope Romney brings up just how many jet trips BO has taken, including the flyover of NYC that panicked thousands....

Romney has a sense of humor--he just said, "a deduction for taking shipping jobs overseas--I've been in business for 25 years and never heard of this. I should get a new accountant."

Romney is being a bulldog here; Obama, a skittish chihuahua.

I just got on but I have been watching the whole debate.

Am I biased or is Zero really getting his rear end handed to him? I would attack more, but Romney is not doing too bad as I see it.

Just looking for other freeper opinions please.

“I can’t bring myself to watch. Too many negative emotions.”

I am watching, but I now understand why people throw stuff at their TV sets.

I just got a new 60 inch flatscreen, so that’s out of the question, even if it seems very inviting when I have to listen to the BS from bammy.
Leherer has been relatively evenhanded, even though he threw bammy a “balanced approach” lifeline when obozo seemed to have deer in the headlights on one tax question.
