  1. In tonights debate it was very informative on the two candidates views. In my observation the following.

    Romney: Appeared to be very visually aggressive as well as verbally aggressive. He some timed appeared to weave with the answers.

    Obama: Appeared to be more up for the debate and worked in getting Romney on his heels on more then occasion. Once again Obama mentions the numbers don't add up and Romney does not tell what the numbers are.

    In short, tonights debate goes to Obama. One more to go with the debates. Then the election. The most important vote is the Electoral Collage.
