I tried watching it but I had to turn it off.

One disappoints me to the point of depression and the other makes me puke.

I think before you get down to equalizing pay, you may want to make sure that the folks can get a job to begin with..

thus, the need for a more robust economy.. pretty simple from where I sit..


And how exactly is Romney going to do that?

He was asked, his answer was "I know how to create jobs". Maybe you heard a different answer, if you did, please let us know.

Romney's answer for almost every question so far has been:

"I know how to do it"

But then he doesn't give any specifics on how exactly he is going to do that.


That takes time.

They are on a clock to answer.

Obama is better at eating up the clock with repeating .. repeating .. deflecting .. diverting.

He has better experience and more reasons to.

All this talk about "equal pay in the workplace"

FOLKS, our economy is in the tanker and soon our women and children might be scraping road kill off the highway to eat.

Workplace equality????

And the same non-answers from Romney

yawn...at your talking point comeback.


Seen a lot of non answers from Obama in the last 4 years and from the first debate and tonites debate which are nothing but the same recycled failed talking points that haven't done jack for this country.

Is it normal for everyone to keep interrupting and talking over eachother during debates?
It's getting hard to not get frustrated when they do so...reminds me of when women argue..geez


It has kinda descended into anarchy...I'm overstating things, but it certainly isn't a focused debate. And, honestly, I don't like the moderator at all.

Obama has given specifics in every answer.

If Obama can do it, Romney can to...he has decided not to.

This isn't a new criticism about Romney, he doesn't give any specifics and has said multiple times that the details will come after the election.

Is Romney now using the "blame Bush" tactic?

Because Reps could care less about equality. Paying women equal pay would hurt the corporate bottom line


Youre not gonna have to worry about women getting paid equally if Obama gets elected again because there wont be any jobs for them to get a paycheck from.......

I could respond that the incumbent has had four years to turn it around.. and despite their claims of recovery, most folks I know are having a difficult time finding where that claim is true..

what is the current admins plan? four more of the same?

Sorry, that's not an option for folks who have been treading water on promises.. their arms are getting tired...

Because there is nothing to equalize.......like I said before, woman make more money when you take in all the factors, how dangerous a job is, how many hours one is willing to work, how much personal time someone is willing to sacrifice to work.

Its been in various studies already that its mostly due to lifestyle choice which is why pay isn't equalized. At least when it comes to all various businesses other than technical busineses ( computers, etc).

For example if a father stays at home, wife will have a career, make more money. if a mother stays at home, and a father goes to work, their career will go up.

Most businesses, do not discriminate against women, yes there are some, but most do not.

According to workingmother, its not a question of whether a glass ceiling exists, but whether there are enough women vying for the top jobs. Her example from her own expereinces, if there is a job interview for lets just say a VP, there will be 5 men and 1 woman there, so who is likely to get the job?
