I think Romney scored some very good points, he looked very involved and passionate.  Obama spent to much time looking down, seemed bored and not to passionate in his replies.

The fact checkers say that obama is the one who lied--just like he's done for the last 4 years.

So what if Romney talked. obama's had 4 years to talk and has done nothing but lie to us.

Quoting DixieL:

 

 

I agree. Romney didn't shut his mouth for a second. The narrator let Romney talk as much as he wanted. Everytime the President spoke, the narrator shut him up, even before his time was up. Everytime Romney opened his mouth, he was either lying or putting his foot in it.

Omg, we wanted to see the other side's view. we started watching MSNBC. Rachel Maddow and Chris Mathews are making excuses while admitting Obama lost. Funny stuff.

He was with Romney. I'd be bored also.

Yeah; it was SOOOO sensitive the way Romney smirked and joked that it was romantic of the President to spend time with him on his wedding anniversary.

I'll have to rewatch, too.  You miss a lot when you're reading and answering other people's replies in a "Let's watch the debate together" post.  I won't be doing that the next three times.

Quoting shimamab:

Obama didn't bring his A game and if that was considered Romney at his best, he better hope O stays that subdued throughout the rest. I found them both to be boring tonight. May rewatch it tomorrow, could be my mood.

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

Excited over the most dull debate ever. Lame

Agree; it was very dull.  Disappointing.  But hey, they were talking economy which bored me in school, too.  Let's hope foreign and domestic policy questions posed by Undecideds selected by Gallup with result in a more rousing debate.

The great difference between Obama and Romney that no one's mentioned is that Romney has little else to think about but campaigning while the President still has the weight of the world on his shoulders.  I also doubt Romney has received as many death threats as the President has received.  I sometimes wonder if the President becomes aware of a threat just before going on stage during the campaign, probably more to unnerve him than actual intent to kill him but disconcerting and distracting all the same. 

Such concerns may lead to the President's flat performances.  He also has to be careful how he speaks because all the people saying he wasn't aggressive enough would be saying he was too aggessive and arrogant if he'd done as Romney did.  It's better to err on the "too passive" side than the "rudely aggressive" side.

Romney-

He presented zero mathematically feasible economic or HC solutions though.

Where's the beef, Mitt?

Wrong-

I saw them give him one partial wrong- half true/half false

I agree Romney won, didn't change my mind about him though, will still vote for President Obama.

I agree with you. Romney was stronger than I expected. Obama seemed "off" and irritated, which is surprising, because he is usually such a strong speaker

You are not wrong.

Am I wrong in saying, this is the wrong group to ask this question of?
