Obama-Romney Round 3 - Who won final debate?

President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney spent their final debate Monday circling the globe’s hot spots as they clashed over the merits of diplomacy and brinkmanship in Libya, Israel, Iran, the Middle East and other volatile areas.

It's not blaming Bush...it's a fact. You asked for the facts and there they are. Stop your crying

@ theignorance:

Without documentation, they are just "opinions."

Did you ever do a term paper in school? Didn't you have to provide proof???

theignorance

@Contago go to govtracker.us and look up that bill. It's documented you moron

@ theignorance:

Name calling AND "ignorance"; quite a combo. Are you a child?

As a libertarian, I'd shut down all foreign bases and bring all military personel home.

Neither Misters Romney or Obama would agree to that.

betrump

99% Of your posts are just opinion, too, but you always say you have all the facts. That's a little hypocritical, no?

betrump

Libertarians, by the way, are mental children. They believe in some perfect utopia, where there's no government, no laws, and no one tells them what to do. Every and all libertarians have their heads in the clouds, and not one of them has EVER made any sense what so ever. It's just like Communism: Looks great on paper, but doesn't work in real life...

Obama did promise to have the troops out in a year. He then found out he couldn't do it yet he didn't even talk to the leaders of Iraq for a year before he did remove the troops and now having pulled out to soon the place is falling apart.
We went to the LAST RESORT and then pulled back before completing the job.
Mark my words, WE WILL HAVE TO GO BACK AGAIN!
Hopefully we'll finally finish the job next time.
How many more of our people will have to die next time

@ betrump:

Right, the timeline was set under Pres. Bush.

Pres. Obama likes to crow about ending the "Iraq War."

Good to see that you give credit for ending the Iraq occupation to Pres. Bush.

arnmcrmn

@betrump...so if Bush set the timeline, why is Obama touting that he ended the war. Seems like he stepped in as the backup QB in the 4th quarter up by 50 and then telling the paper the next morning he won the game.

Dr. Information

@arnm. Now thats funny.

betrump

Because he DID. He was the Commander in Chief, and gave the order to withdraw troops. Why is that so hard to understand?

Dr. Information

He followed through on a plan and timeline that was already set in place. That's all he did.

Yo ding-bat. Can you read I said at the request of the family. But no, Obama and moderator wanted to trap Romney in the question on Lybia. If you had the facts other than your liberal stations you would know what Obamas record is the last 4 years. Whose head is in the sand?

@ deertracker:

Fact: Public employee pension plans invest billions with private equity firms like Bain Capital.

They also invest billions with hedge funds which benefits those "middle class" you care so much about.

The Choomie in the WH appreciates your blind support.

betrump

Like those individuals really have a choice. My employer decided who managed my retirement; I had no choice, other than which mutual fund to put it in. Talk about blind...

Contango

@ betrump:

So maybe your employer is trying to get a good ROI for your retirement?

Love the: It's not MY FAULT argument. You Progs have that one down pat.

betrump

I'll give you credit: you are a master of spinning the BS. Regardless, the lights are on, but no one is home. Not sure what world you live in, but its not the real one.

Gravenhorst

All I can say is that 'BETRUMP' must be a very unhappy person!!! I suggest you stop believing your liberal sources, and open your eyes to what is really going on in our great nation.

Who got US out of Iraq? Who ordered a standown for Marines 50 miles out of Baghdad in the 1rst war. You'll figger it out.

betrump

Did no one notice that Romney seems to think Syria is a route to 'the sea' for Iran? Ummm, last I checked These two countries share NO borders, and Iran has about 1500 miles of coastline. But then, I only spent months in the Persian Gulf, and months in the Gulf of Oman and Straights of Hormuz, but I'm sure Romney must know what he's talking about. His foreign policy debate performance consisted of him saying "I agree with the President. I'd just do it harder!"

The issues in the middle east are not going to change in next 4 years and the job issue is not going to happen over night. Russia isn't our biggest threat... Obama is right that people here need to be educated and that education, expertise could help americans have more jobs.. they will be created in technology and other stuff to keep up with china that keeps advancing in these areas..

eriemom

Wow! 60% thought Romney won the debate. Now I know what is wrong in Norwalk. People. Get your head out of the sand.

Contango

@ eriemom:

Obviously the Obamasheeple dislike others having differing opinions.

IMO - a draw.

theignorance

ARE YOU KIDDING?! Romney backers on this website are the worst! Anytime ANYONE says anything supporting Obama, they get attacked.

arnmcrmn

Thats because 90% of the time they throw out opinion as facts. Truth.

theignorance

Same for you guys hahahaahhaaha wow

Contango

@ theignorance:

Just vote for and believe in Pres. Obama - that's all you need or want to know.

I don't trust any d*mn politician.

betrump

Thank goodness 'obamasheeple' isn't childish, 'cause that would be hypocritical.

Contango

@ theignorance:

Your username includes the word "ignorance" and you support Pres. Obama?

Irony?

Foreign policy is far down on the list of most voters concerns. This "debate" was largely inconsequential.

The economy and jobs are the major concerns. Both have been mediocre under Mr. Obama.

arnmcrmn

@contango....more like stagnant and depressing under Obama.
