Bad cartoon. If you read a transcript of the debate, you see that Obama confronts each and every one of Romney's claims and promises with fact and policy realism.  Let's not fall for the superficiality of "performance".  After all, Obama does have a day job...

The debate exposed Obama for what he was: An Emperor with no clothes.

 Never mind the near total departure from Romney's campaign positions and past speeches. Never mind the multiple lies that even David Gergan had to recognize. Never mind the walkback that the Romney Campaign did the next day ('No... He didn't really mean that he would continue to guarantee coverage for pre-existing conditions... The Governor misspoke during the debate...'). Never mind...

Well, just never mind. If one is concerned with superficial appearance and one doesn't mid outrageous outright dishonesty, then...yeah... Romney 'won'.

Personally, I think it's wise to look at a politician's record - not just what politicians SAY about their OWN record.

I think the debate is good but the three is too  much as there is nothing but criticising one and downgrading the other . Do you want that type of president f future who throws mud now in the beginning? I doubt I thank you Firozali A.Mulla DBA
