Why is Obama getting away with saying our ally Israel? Everybody knows Obama is no friend to Israel and knows Obama had no time for Benjamin Netanyahu - Romney call him on this!

Obama looking petty, desperate, and angry... Got caught lying about Romney’s education record in Mass just now.

Too many worry warts here..Romney is doing fine, this is a snoozer, 80% of the country has no clue what theyre talking about in this debate..

Romney looking presidential is all that matters here.

Mitt is performing extremely poorly.

It is not good.

Obama getting all the last words, and all the first “clear statements”

Romney humuna humuna humaning all day on every point.

He just needs to call this man out. Foreign Policy should have been a slam dunk, instead it is The Giant letting Deshawn Jackson beat them on a 0 second left punt return.

Good Grief.

Romney completely blew it on Libya! I’ll NEVER understand why!

He’s done superbly since then, now that they’re talking economy.

The Marxist is showing desperation by making it personal.

I’m not at that happy with this debate, but I’ve likely missed some very good points.

Obama spend a lot of time blinking and staring when Mitt speaks.

Yep. As the libs would say, 'he's got bad optics.'

Mitt, on the other hand, comes across as alert, smart, confident, and sharp. Quick on his feet, and acts like a chief executive.

This is all the viewers are looking for. The conversation they're having matters less.

#1, #2, #3 things for Mitt Romney to do tonight is everything necessary to avoid being labelled a war-monger and scaring everyone off those more interested in the economy than anything else.

Keep that in mind with every answer, and you will understand this whole thing much better, I believe.

Expect the polls to completely reverse swing tomorrow back to Obama up 2/3/4, especially Ohio.

Obama lying all over the place, but that doesn’t mean squat unless Romeny literally says the words “YOU ARE LYING SIR.”

Anything short of that statement sees Romney continue to sink with cement shoes.

Obama also spouting lots of Conservatively veiled viewpoints, of which he would never actually support or implement.

My observations:

Obama is mimicking Romney, both in facial expression and in many of the things Romney is saying and has said. Obama has copied the pleasant turn of lips that Romney has shown in prior debates. Obama talked about a five-point plan, Romney had a five-point plan in another debate. Romney mentioned helping women in the ME and Obama parroted that in one of his five points).

One thing that really affects me is the looks of the two men when they are shown on the screen side-by-side. I’ve never thought much about Obama’s looks one way or the other, but next to Romney, he’s one of the ugliest men I’ve ever seen.

Obama is also interrupting Romney on occasion and it comes across to me as unpresidential.

Obama knows he will lose, but he still has a teeny tiny bit of hope left, probably counting on voter fraud. It’s going to be a landslide; no amount of fraud will help.

I agree. I have been watching portions of this debate. Can’t watch too much at a time. My blood pressure shoots up.

Romney somehow has bought into this notion that he must play nice and not attack Obama. It is pathetic. This is why none of us wanted Romney in the first place. Newt would have been destroying Obama.

Mittens isn’t correcting the record 0bama lies about. He’s just not tough enough.

Relax. Most people watching can barely keep up with the subjects that are being discussed. What's more important tonight, is how Obama and Romney come off to the viewers.

Which of them looks and sounds more presidential? What about body language and eye movement? Do they sound meandering and aimless, or do they sound definite and sure?

As before, Romney is kicking Obama's butt in all of those categories.
