I love the way Romney supporters and the anti-Obama camp look at things. You clearly weren't watching the debate I was watching last night. ~



Romney tried to be aggressive last night, and Bob simply wouldn't have it. Also, as an Obama supporter, I never said that about Obama in regards to the first debate. I have always held the position that he lost because he simply wasn't prepared.



Obama was NOT rude and aggressive last night. Obama was on his toes, and he was quick to respond. That's not the same thing as being rude and aggressive. Checking someone (for lack of a better phrase) isn't the same thing as being aggressive and rude.



Romney was a class "A" jerk during the first two debates. I do give him credit for displaying a calm demeanor during the majority of the debate. Someone clearly had a discussion with Romney on the way he presents himself during the debates.



What bad temper did Obama display last night? I do believe that many Romney supporters are mistaking jokes and sarcasm for rudeness and anger. I have been in that position most of my life. Many people (usually of the opposing viewpoint) mistake my jokes and sarcasm for rudeness and anger. I do believe that many Romney supporters are taking Obama's jokes too seriously.



Case in point, Obama's bayonets comment. Obama didn't say that the Army didn't use bayonets, he said that there were fewer bayonets and horses. But, Fox News spun and twisted his statement, and the majority of the anti-Obama camp has taken the spin and they've run with it.



We need a balance in a President. It is my opinion that Obama is that balance. Obama knows when to be calm, and he knows when to be aggressive.



Besides, I thought that Republicans and Conservatives loved aggressive and rude Presidents. I have heard nothing but excuses from Romney supporters and the anti-Obama camp on Romney's rude and vile behavior during the first two debates. You all cannot have this both ways.



Republicans and Democrats are very similar. Both parties (generally speaking) are "blindly" supporting their candidate no matter what they say or do. It amazes me when people from either side fail to see this. CM is a minute thread in the fabric that is America. Hell, all of the members of CM aren't American, LOL.



People on CM aren't hopeless and they aren't voting based on what the mainstream media says. That line of logic is fallacious. I mean, to me it sounds like you're trying to insinuate that anyone that supports Obama hasn't done their homework. That couldn't be anything farther from the truth.



I think that both candidates performed quite well last night. But, Obama clearly won that debate. What I really loved was Romney repeating Obama's stances almost verbatim. That was epic. :)


Quoting MommyTwice0411:

I love how obama supporters look at things. When Obama was clearly clueless during the first debate, you said he was polite and shocked at what was coming out of Romney's mouth and that Romney was rude because he was aggressive. Last night, Romney was very calm and collective and very presidential and Obama was rude and aggressive and you got a taste of his bad temper but you say we need that in a president. So really, no matter what he says or how he acts, for some crazy reason you will still vote for him. I am so glad there are tons of people off CM that are catching on to obama's lies. I think people on CM are just hopeless and stuck on the opinions of the mainstream media. Also, I love how Obama talks about the policies that got us into this mess like he wasn't the president for the last 4 years.

Why don't you do some reseach on Russia's vote history with the UN and whule you're at it, the role they played with the Oik for Food scandal and the current situation with the ME, primarily Syria and Iran.

Quoting AdellesMom:

I asked you a question about Russia, and you NEVER answered it. I believe that you ignored that quote. Not surprising, and it says a lot about you.



Russia is neither a threat or an ally. I hit up Google at that point in the debate. So, I'll stick with that.



What I stated isn't BS. You do know what happens when America forces its way into another country, and begins to force their ways onto another nation, don't you? It almost always ends in war. Why do you think America is one of the most hated countries in the world?



America needs to understand that our way of life should NOT be imposed on others no matter how badly we may feel for them.



What I stated isn't BS, it's simply my opinion. You obviously disagree. You support Romney, and you're obviously blind to a few of his stances and flip flops. That's fine, it doesn't matter to me.



I know that Romney said that he doesn't want to go to war. However, his talking points state otherwise. That's the point.



If Obama said what Romney said last night, my stance would be the same. Try again.




Quoting pvtjokerus:

First Russia now the war BS.  Seriously, do you really have your blinders on or you just make up things to stir the pot?  Romney stated over and over and over he does not want to go to war or put boots on the ground.  Is that too hard for you to understand.  I am sure if Obama said that same statement you would be saying the opposite.....



Quoting AdellesMom:

Really? lol

Romney wants to start another war. At least, that what it sounded like last night. America needs to stop putting its nose where it isn't wanted or needed. Why do you think people that live outside of America hate us so much?

Romney will not be a peacekeeper, and he certainly will not turn our economy around. Our economy won't get better until the global economy gets better.




Quoting Lacey14:



Obama was talking about Romney flip-flopping, but he was referring to foreign policies and situations in the middle east over the past 5 years or so.  They way things are so volatile over there and change rapidly, they all change strategies and alter their ideas of what is needed per each situation.  What one might have  said or voted for 5 years ago, isn't necessarily where they stand today.



Obama is bragging about pulling all the troops out of Iraq, but the truth is, he fought hard to keep troops there longer.  Congress wouldn't let him.  So now, he is spinning that into a win.



We need Romney in office to turn our country around both financially, and as a strong nation and peacekeeper.



Quoting Nay25:

Well so far I've watched all the debates except for this last one and I don't really know what to think r who to vote for I'm really unsure an undecided. I think they both answered so many ?'s quick an good but they also both ad there moments where they didn't do good an just flip flopped some of there answers. And it's true Obama hasnt change nearly enough cause we still all struggling but at the Same time we don't know what Romney will get In there an do either it might be another four yrs wasted but maybe anything will be better then what were all having to go through now. Im mean the dam prices r just outrageous. So yeah I'm still undecided about who ima vote for. Do any of y'all no who y'all r gonna vote for?

You will not get anywhere with AM. she is a very intuitive person, she was able to take one look at Mr. Obama and know with great certitude that he was the right person for the job.

She will not waver.

You're 100% incorrect in your assertions. I am intuitive. But, not to that extent. I'm only human.

You will not waver in your support for Romney. Look in the mirror.

I've been doing research, and the stance is that Russia is neither a threat or an ally right now.

Apparently after researching Russia she is ok with their thwarting us at the UN pretty much consistently since the UN was chartered.
She is ok with their killing American soldiers by arming other countries and terrorists.

I can almost anticipate her saying Russia is cool, I can see Sarah Palin's house from there.

You're completely erroneous, as usual.

-----your a real crack  up the old----oh forgive me I forgot my place.

Quoting LucyMom08:

 One, more economic development. We should key our foreign aid, our direct foreign investment and that of our friends — we should coordinate it to make sure that we — we push back and give them more economic development.

Quoting ladybugist:

----you have to listen to what your hearing----he said the money that is given to them needs to be governed so that it does was it was intended to do---not go to our enemies.

Quoting LucyMom08:

Did Romney seriously just say that giving the Middle East more foreign aid money would help?
