I am torn on this.

I would rather focus on the fact that he lied with nearly every statement  and flipped flopped on the statements that were not lies.

I almost look at this as a distraction. But on the other side it is illegal (Or maybe just against the rules-not sure how that all works) to bring notes of any kind to the debate. Shady

Its cheating!

Yeah. That's pretty clear. But what does that mean?

Do we all look at Romney and go, "Shame Shame! You are a shady guy!" or is there some form of Punishment for the cheating?

You guys accusing him of breaking rules do realize he picked up his "notes" to wipe his face later during the debate?

It was win or go home.

He still did not present a viable plan {economic or hc].

How about he pay PBS for broadcast time and divulge his entire, superior, business plan for curing a failing global economy, job growth, HC reformation and....

I'd watch. He has the money- he should put it where his promises are-

If he has all the answers and is so confident, educate the rest of us- convince the populace instead of his old cronies-

Oh, that's right,he has disdain for 47% and if you're not greasing his palm, he has no use for you.

I didn't watch the debates that closely (I listened while folding laundry) so I have no idea what it was I was simply looking for other peoples thoughts. But if it is a hanky, why pull it out and put it there... Gross, why not just leave it in your pocket til you need it?

But not so for Romney. The Presidential challenger goes back to his lectern to retrieve his items. It is clear that the only thing that Romney takes is paper. Not a handkerchief. Not a white flag. Nothing but paper

Not that it really matters. Why someone would need a note card to lie, and flip flop is beyond me. I imagine he won't try the same thing next debate. I guess we will see if there are any changes in his confidence.

What is gross about using a clean hanky to dry your face after being under those lights for 90 minutes?
