    Who the hell cares what he did as a candidate in 07 ???

  2. swanspirit says:

    Mitt is serious about Israel! Ask about Jerusalem!!!!!!!!!

  3. britgirls says:

    Now he’s talking about what he did as a candidate? WTF? What have you done the past four years?

  4. Sanctions have NOT worked. At all. Iran is on the verge of having a deliverable nuke. They have the material for dirty bombs.
    Strength? SO leaving the Iranian protesters out in the cold is showing strength?

  5. DM says:

    Great moderating.

  6. Karma says:

    Romney: We have freed nations from dictators

    Obama: Bob…I, I, I, I, I

  7. tommy says:

    Threads are filling up pretty quickly. TCH is galloping.

  8. swanspirit says:

    Mitt just took control , I love it !

  9. Karma says:

    Romney giving specifics on Obama’s failure….around the world.

  10. catarina says:

    Romney talking with his hands.
    Obama’s hands are down his pants.

  11. Schieffer is giving the men even time…..he’s a pro

  12. myiq2xu says:

    I’m drinking milk but I’m not happy about it.

  13. Karma says:

    Obama goes back to the same bs answer he already gave….’All over the map’…..can’t reference the details as well this time….uh….uh…uh.

  14. wmcb says:

    Romney killing it right now on what WE ALL SEE happening overseas. Obama trying to fall back on flip flopping tales. Lame. Oh, now O KILLED BIN LADEN!!!!!!

  15. DM says:

    Obama is funny.

  16. catarina says:

    Jesus on a wheat thin..Peyton, we heart you!

  17. ah yes—here we are—Pockistan again. How full of himself

  18. DM says:

    The Giants are doing really good.

  19. britgirls says:

    I can’t follow what Obama’s trying to say. It just meanders …

  20. Karma says:

    Can’t even remember his own story about the little girl’s father who died in 9/11 and killing in bin Laden.


  21. swanspirit says:

    Mitt has that , I know I am debating an idiot look, down pat !

  22. tommy says:

    Whats the verdict so far? Who dood whom?

  23. oh crap I was wrong—Mitt is behind with time—3 whole minutes less

  24. wmcb says:

  25. He has kept Americans safe? REALLY? I think Ambassador Stevens parents would disagree. You, YOU Barry- the buck stops with YOU! And your drone was flying over in live time- and you left them there to die. You DID NOT keep them safe you son of a bitch!

  26. Karma says:

    ‘We’ll give you….’

    Obama then shuts up and doesn’t say ‘more time.’ After realizing what it is he was saying. Candy isn’t here Obama.

  27. DM says:

    The more Barack Hussein talks, the dumber he sounds.

  28. DM says:

    Obama bin laden LOL.

  29. britgirls says:

    Heh … Bob said “Obama’s Bin Laden” instead of Osama … that’s about right.

  30. DeniseVB says:

    Yes, Bob brought up the doctor in prison.

  31. swanspirit says:

    I think the moderator wants to vote for Mitt now

  32. wmcb says:

  33. New Orleans says:

    Did Bob just say Obama Bin Laden? Oops!

  34. Obama is telegraphing that he doesn’t want to be there and can’t be bothered with Mitt Romney……big mistake

  35. catarina says:

    we”ll always have Pocky-stan. *sigh*

  36. cj says:

    David Burge‏@iowahawkblog

    Enough about Pockystaahn. I want to hear about Meh-hee-co, Frohnnce, and Brraseeel.

  37. Obama is on some alternate planet. Those countries are not our partners- they are killing our troops. Blue on green mean anything to you asshat?

  38. britgirls says:

    Obama: “MEEEEE!!! It’s all about MEEEE!”

  39. taw46 says:

    “This nation, ME…..”

  40. DandyTiger says:

    Somalia!! Pirates! We have partnerships with pirates now. I’m voting for Obama. /s

  41. swanspirit says:

  42. Erica says:

    Obama talking about his trips, like it’s a vacation travelogue. Glad Romney nailed him on skipping Israel when he went to the ME.

  43. cj says:

    blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, aaaaand blah.

  44. britgirls says:

    Mitt’s gotten under Obama’s skin. He’s coming across as so pissy. What a brat.

    • DM says:

      Obama does not sound like a president who’s been involved with FP. My guess is that he hasn’t been involved.

  45. JohnSmart says:

    Romney’s internals must be good.

  46. DM says:

    I hope I don’t miss anything from that debate, but that’s all I can stands, and I can’t stands no more.

  47. swanspirit says:

    Mitt knows how to make a deal , with China , Come on Down LOL

  48. How is Obama closer to the camera than Romney is? Is he leaning forward, or is that a camera trick?

    • britgirls says:

      Don’t know, but he’s invading my personal space. He needs to back up. Back up allll the way back to Hawaii. Buh-bye.

  49. Karma says:

    Obama looks confused that Romney has more than a big stick approach to China.

  50. Lulu says:

    The answer to competition from China is more teachers and green tech.

  51. catarina says:

    Obama looks to be unraveling like a 2 yr old who missed nap.
    To bad the debate doesn’t go on for another half hour-he just doesn’t have the stamina Romney has.

  52. Karma says:

    Obama tries to hide his smirk over Bob’s question to Romney about currency manipulation.

  53. myiq2xu says:

    7 innings in the books, Giants lead 7-0

  54. Karma says:

    You invested in jobs being shipped overseas….Obama is soooo predictable.

  55. DandyTiger says:

    OMG, I think Obama’s trying for a do-over of the first debate. Holy fuck. What idiots.

  56. taw46 says:

    Obama, having nothing else, once again attacks Romney as sending jobs to China.

  57. swanspirit says:

    Obama sounds like a nasty 11 year old gawwwwdess I want to tell him take the smart alek attitude and shove it

  58. wmcb says:

    Romney knocked it out of the park on China. Clear, concise, understandable.

  59. mcnorman says:

    Fugly and tense.

  60. britgirls says:

    Candy’s not there with a convenient transcript unfortunately.

  61. taw46 says:

    Tesla and Fiskar. Solyndra. It gets better and better!

  62. DeniseVB says:

    Obama doesn’t understand the bankruptcy process does he.

  63. swanspirit says:

  64. swanspirit says:

    Obama bin Laden ~Bob Schieffer

  65. wmcb says:

    LMAO! Obama trying to get moderator to produce a handy transcript like Crowley did!!

  66. HELENK says:

    romney has got this debate
    shows knowledge, poise, calm demeanor, knows how to handle testy little boys

  67. britgirls says:

    Teachers … the new BIG BIRD. lol

  68. britgirls says:

    Closing statements. Bob did a great job.

    • swanspirit says:

      I agree, and I think the criticism regarding the first two debates helped ,
      and also the proximity to the toxic waste heap and the stench coming from Barack Osama ~ Bin Laden .

  69. DeniseVB says:

    Closing statements. Bam up first, attacking Bush and Romney 🙂

  70. swanspirit says:

    woohoo Mitt gets the last word 😉

  71. cj says:

    Obama’s got a vision, lol. Unfortunately, he’s also got a record this time.

  72. Lulu says:

    Obama is using his begging voice. LOL

  73. myiq2xu says:

    That was a weak close.

  74. Underwhelmed says:

    I can’t watch, even though it’s on where I am. I prefer to experience it vicariously, here. But from comments, I’m thinking maybe Romney has given O just enough rope to hang himself. The follow up ads will be interesting. When it comes to these debates, people quickly forget the substance but remember the impression, the demeanour. And the ads are short, punchy, and have more impact. I mean, the one about O protecting Americans really writes itself, yes?

  75. britgirls says:

    Thanks TCH for these wonderful debate threads. 🙂 Love it here!

  76. Locked-N-Loaded says:

    Romney wins big time!!!

  77. mcnorman says:

    Best line deserves an award: Obama Bin Laden

    Thanks Bob

  78. myiq2xu says:

    I’m not gonna bother with the post-game analysis.

  79. Erica says:

    What I read of Ambassador Stevens reports from Libya directly contradicts what 0 says about al qaeda (sp?) being at their weakest ever.

  80. leslie says:

    I like Bob Schieffer. His brother was co-owner of the Texas Rangers with GWBush.

  81. DeniseVB says:

    Good closing Mitt, I believe you.

  82. swanspirit says:

    Moochelle does not look happy

  83. catarina says:

    one of romney’s little grandkids overheard saying to Obama, it’s the economy, stupid!”

  84. kanaughty says:

    hi everyone!

  85. OldCoastie says:

    I thought it was fundamentally a draw.

  86. kanaughty says:

    i was reading today that romney had to say he wasn’t a warmonger because ob would paint him that way. also he had to talk about prosperity, and i think he did that. ob still didn’t talk about the future under him. i love how he caught himself saying “I” and then changed it to his administration. what a narcisist…

  87. Tweety’s hair is all crazy and he is going on about racists- white people want to “get rid of this guy”
    So Obama must have lost.

  88. swanspirit says:

    They look waaaaay too solemn over at Msnbc almost grim
    I might have to dance

  89. DeniseVB says:

  90. wmcb says:

    Romney won. Not a knockout like the first one, not a draw like the last. He won this.

  91. DM says:

    Spin, spin. Political Wire:

    Reaction to the Third Presidential Debate
    The third and final presidential debate was President Obama’s best moment in the campaign so far. He was prepared on every issue and knew Mitt Romney’s record of past statements just as well.

    Obama succeeded because he conveyed his unique view of the world from the Oval Office. For undecided voters watching, all they probably heard was that he’s the commander-in-chief. And that’s what Team Obama wanted.

    For the most part, Romney made an effort to look presidential by not attacking. He was exceedingly careful and desperately tried not to make a mistake. In fact, despite his rhetoric for the last two years, he now apparently agrees with most of the Obama administration’s foreign policy.

    As a result, Romney’s biggest opponent was not the president, it was his own words. Obama did a brilliant job of bringing up past Romney statements — on Iraq, on the nation’s biggest adversary, on Afghanistan, on Osama bin Laden — to make him look unprepared for the presidency.

    As the debate went on, Romney tried many times to move the international affairs discussion back to the economy where he was more comfortable. It was as if he had only 30 minutes of foreign policy talking points for a 90 minute debate. As a result he seemed to string together random thoughts which often made him sound incoherent.

    Obama won the debate hands down.

    Bob Schieffer started off doing a good job as moderator, framing questions but still letting the candidates engage each other. But he lost control of the debate as both Romney and Obama often preferred to talk about the economy. It’s clear that both candidates know that most voters don’t care much about foreign policy.
