After the debate, debate moderator Candy Crowley said Republican nominee Mitt Romney was “right in the main” but “picked the wrong word” on the Obama administration’s immediate response to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead.
In a statement given in the Rose Garden on Sept. 12, Obama emphasized an anti-Islam video, before saying that “no acts of terror would shake the resolve of this great nation.”
On Sept. 25, the president himself declined to call the attack an act of terrorism during an interview with “The View,” saying that an investigation was still ongoing.

I can't afford Obama's plan for small businesses. If Romney wins, I'll move full speed ahead, and finish investing in the growth of my business, and hiring people to meet my goals.

Well, my opinion, not that it matters that much if at all...
As a registered Republican who views himself as impartial and sees through the two-party dictatorship, I give this debate to Obama pretty handedly. Once again, they both did a great job at being deceitful, and did not really address any issues that truly matter such as our servicemen taking their own lives in epidemic proportions or the financial markets, particularly derivatives, and how they are ruining our economy without proper oversight.
I thought Romney spanked Obama in the first debate with his delivery and his lies, have to go with Obama in this one. I was pretty sure my prediction from 08 would not come to pass that Romney was chosen to lose to Obama but after this debate I think it all but gets rid of Romney's bump in the polls at the very least and shifts the election back towards an Obama win.
Still a long way to go and one more debate, a lot could happen. I will not be surprised if Romney gets chosen to be the president, but I don't think there is any question Obama took this one.
I was watching the ABC live stream and after the debate they were talking to voters through a web chat, very interesting. Almost all of them were upset that Romney just criticizes Obama's past four years and Obama just criticizes Romney's platform, neither of them offering any answers. I don't know how they dare call this a debate.
As usual, no matter who wins the American people lose.

I'm a feminist - - supporter of equal rights.
But I was actually offended by Romney's "women need flexible hours".
What did he just do? He created a separation. An inequality.
Special treatment for women. When what they want is Equality.
