Presidential Debate Round 3--Epic Fail

Bob Schieffer is the moderator. It's a "sit-down" debate like the VP debate.

Live stream (among many) is here.

Comments: This is goddamned painful. Romney succeeded in diverting the debate from foreign policy to domestic policy. Both candidates score an epic fail on education.

Romney did this because he knows he doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground about foreign policy, and Schieffer let him get away with it. He has lost control of the debate.

Total fail. I'd rather hear the two talk about Lance Armstrong.

Obama is talking about defense, so at least he is trying to go back to foreign policy. Mitt keeps trying to divert but gave up and decided to be on point. "The horses and bayonets" remark by Obama was a nice touch.

Obama is winning this mess of a debate, but it is like taking candy from a baby.

Shit, this China thing is a mess. Obama scored a few points on Mitt's investments, and then Mitt changes the subject back to the auto industry instead of China. Obama is no prize and isn't as smart as he thinks he is, but Mitt is astoundingly ignorant. This is goddamned pitiful.

More yammering about education by two ignorant politicians. Closing statements. Foreign policy never returned to the debate.

A mess. A complete and total mess. I will be watching the "expanded" version with the third party candidates even though I have already voted.
