This is the first presidential debate I've ever watched and holy shit these guys are both bulls hitting so hard.. Offering policies and promoting dreams with zero plans or specific blueprints. I wonder if any of these guys give a shit about the country or just themselves.

And Romney smug smile after each of his points was that judge dude was getting abused too

That's exactly how I saw it as well. Pandering to the masses but then offering literally 0 substance on how they actually plan to implement these grand ideas.

Romney absolutely came across better than Obama but neither one of them really said anything.

Big win for Romney tonight, hi only glaring weakness was on Obamacare (which he obviously couldn't attack much since it was modeled after Romneycare). I'm not saying Romney won because I think he won, I'm going off of the general consensus and the 400 independent voters NBC polled after the debate. 22% thought Obama won compared to 46% for Romney, that and Romney has closed the gap on this "who cares for the middle class" bullshit (Romney 63, Obama 69). In other news Romney is up 4 points on Obama in swing states

The lesser of two evils may win yet!

It's true neither really gave any specifics, but that's what you have to do to get elected. We already know about Obama so his "plans" don't mean much, he's had 4 years to show us what he'll do (or fail to do). Romney can't be specific because people vote what benefits them personally over what is good for the country at large, so he can't say he'll cut all these entitlement programs (which needs to be done) and lower taxes on the wealthy (who happen to create jobs).

Romney has material to go off. We saw Obama fvck up. All he has to do is research the numbers and hammer him. Obama will blame the people before him as usual but he has no real dirt on Romney.

Romney seems to take more of a ruthless business 'efficient' approach while Obama plays the overly humanitarian. Romney, is a scumbag and a dick. Obama is soft and doesn't know anything. They both suck and I ain't voting.

^ same here (party cuz MD is already decided). I'm 18 and felt like I should take the time to actually vote this year but it really isn't worth it. Neither of these two will truly accomplish anything. The Winner's fanbase can just claim it has a bigger d!ck than the other side

Reading it doesn't change the fact the Romney did actually win the debate not really close but that doesn't mean he will win nor will he but if you can't accept the fact that Romney didn't win this debate then it sucks knowing I'll be voting along side a retard for the same president.

Some of you guys need to look up how much the debates effect the polls.

They don't.
