    If you were voting for Obama did the debate change your mind?

    What do you think? if you were voting for Obama prior to the debate did you change your mind and will now vote for Romney?

    though he wore a moderate mask instead of his severely conservative mask, no. i still don't support his trickle down domestic policies or his hawkish foreign policies.

    I think neither candidate came out of that debate with a cracking enough performance to do the following:

    A: Bring people over from the other side

    B: Make independents choice any easier.

    Although having said that I felt that Romney did far better than I thought he would.

    Mitt Romney did good, but yeah, what Jetboogieman said.

    I have to give credit to Obama for meeting Romney's family. That must have been awkward.

    They were talking about deficits but never got into the wars as an impact on the deficit.. Two hawks equals war without taxes. Let the children pay for it, dam it.

    No. And here's why. Although Romney did very well, said some important things, made points that I agree with completely, his message last night was not HIS message.
    With a few exceptions, his points were not conservative or Republican. He basically agreed with almost everything the President has done but says they were not completely correct. WHA????

    So he goes on national TV and plays a moderate/centrist Republican (damn near Democrat) and I'm supposed to believe what he said, after months and months of stating the opposite? No, I'm sorry Mr. Romney but I'm not buying it. If your message from the beginning was what you put forth last night, I'd have to really think about my voting direction.

    The scary part of last night.... the Tea Party people are not screaming to high heaven about his statments of what he would do and how he would do them. His message last night was VERY far from their message.

    Once again, Mitt's lying. The question is to who?

    i'm sure it would be quite simple to compile a video of every statement that he made last night and to contrast it with something else he has said at some point in the campaign. i was flabbergasted several times. have to hand it to him; he can play to an audience, and Obama failed to effectively call him on his shifts in policy.

    I AM voting third party. I dont think the debates are targeted to people seeking to change their minds. They are targeted at people that havent decided and they are meant to get their base excited. Judging solely by the partisan responses, that round was an unmitigated failure for Obama.
