Live blogging the debate – 10/3/12

  • Hal

    Romney is coming across as having clear points and a straightforward plan.

    In my opinion, Obama isn’t coming across as well. He is shaking his head a lot and appears to be smirking.

  • Bethjock

    Romney is really rude and repetative.

  • hal

    Romney must be repetitive to try to refocus the debate on the actual questions. I haven’t seen rudeness on either candidate’s part.

  • Todd Peterson

    Being prior military I know when I here a LIVE gunshot on tv during a debate and I heard more than one and over a lengthy amount of time. It turned both party members completely around to look and all Obama did was laugh.

    Because I already know who I’m voting for, and because after about 20 minutes I didn’t have any idea what these guys were talking about, I shut off the tube and went to bed. Contributing to that decision were these types of typically distasteful exchanges.

    First distasteful exchange:

    Obama: I looked at a study that said your tax plan will raise taxes a billion thousand dollars per middle class household.

    Romney: Oh yeah? Well, I looked at five other studies that said your study is BS.

    [By the way, where is any discussion about the poor?]

    Next distasteful exchange:

    Romney: You’re getting my plan wrong.

    Obama: But your plan had been this, and now it’s this.

    Romney: You’re getting my plan wrong.

    Obama: But your plan is this.

    Romney: You’re getting my plan wrong.

    “Being prior military I know when I here a LIVE gunshot on tv during a debate and I heard more than one and over a lengthy amount of time. It turned both party members completely around to look and all Obama did was laugh.”

    Considering nobody is reporting shooting during the debates, I’m going to guess that maybe one of the crew dropped something or knocked something over off-camera. I could see how that might be funny, if that’s what happened.
