Actually, as a fairly nuetral observer BO did seem to get about 10% more talking time (I'd guess about 4 more minutes on about 40 minutes worth of speak time for each candidate). It is a fairly small amount of time, didn't bother me at all.

If something wasn't fair as far as Romney is concerned it was the mod jumping in on the "act of terror" comment. I was shocked that a mod would weigh in like that, made her look very biased toward the Prez IMO and very unprofessional.


4 minutes is 2 answers in the 2 minute per answer format, so it does make an impact, especially when it's the same thing every debate.

Granted I didn't see it, but maybe the moderator was just paying back Romney for the way he would continue to talk over and down to her as he did with the mod from the first debate. He does seem to have a habit of doing that.

But isn't this really just a dog and pony show? The media is in BO's pocket, the Moderators are in his pocket, the questions are in his pocket, so Romney is already walking into this situation like General Custer wearing his arrow shirt.

It's not a level playing field and to believe otherwise is a complete shame. I beleive Romney has to be aggressive in order to "have his time" because both mods have been sided with the Liberal Agenda.

By the way, where is the Libertarian Candidate and why is he not present, because if he was a true choice for this country, there are many that need to hear his answers to the questions too!

This just seems like a Coke vs. Pepsi taste test, and everyone knows that Bubba Cola's the best! :P

See and to see why only Democrats and Republicans are in Presidential debates.

Long story short: Because Dems & Repubs don't want anyone else there.

That's a no brainer, why muddy the waters with a third party... Not saying it's the best attitude, but I can see that being said, because it would detract from the big two.

However, I am a little surprised that you didn't respond to the hostile environment that Romney has had to step into with each debate. Basically, it's a rigged game with pre-chosen Liberal Moderators, and questions as well.

I do believe Romney has handled it well, and showed that he has a strong desire to lead this country. At the same time, I agree with BO that there is a stark difference between the two men and their ideologies. One is pro-America, the other isn't but masquerades as such. Kind of like Kruschev's statement, "Well give them small doses of socialism, until one day they wake up and discover their communists."

No she jumped in to "fact check" Romney when he said Obama didn't call it an act of terror the day after, and didn't consider it a terrorist act for 2 weeks. She jumped in and said he did and just happened to have the transcript of that speech with her. She just happened to have a transcript of the most damaging thing against Obama right there? She must have failed to actually read it though, because he said "Acts of terror will not hurt the resolve of our country" but he said so talking about 9/11, not about Libya. And she admitted so on the aftershow on CNN, but since no one watches CNN, most viewers went along with the bad fact check.
