So quick and dirty, here are some of our favorite quotes from tonight:
|Really? lol. |
(Seattle Globalist, 2012)
"Forceful Obama bests defensive Romney in foreign policy debate." ~~ Tom Cohen/CNN
"Barack Obama wins third debate decisively; Mitt Romney passes on big chances." ~~ Lane Filler, Newsday
"The Third Debate: Obama Wins on Style and Substance" ~~ Joe Klein, TIME Magazine
"Syria is Iran's route to the sea." ~~ Mitt Romney 10/22/2012 3rd Debate
"Obama Wins the Third Presidential Debate 52-48 over Romney" ~~ TJ Walker, Forbes Magazine.
One thing I've learned as President, "you’ve got to be clear, both to our allies and our enemies, about where you stand and what you mean." ~~ Barack Obama 10/22/2012 3rd Debate
"Obama Gains 2 Points On Intrade After The First Hour Of The Debate" ~~ Henry Blodget, Business Insider At the same time, reports say that Romney went down by 1 point on Intrade after the debate.
(Democratic Party, 2012)
"CBS Poll: Obama Wins Third Debate By Landslide" ~~ Jordan Zakarin, Hollywood Reporter
"I think Governor Romney maybe hasn’t spent enough time looking at how our military works. You — you mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets — (laughter) — because the nature of our military’s changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines." ~~ Barack Obama 10/22/2012 3rd Debate
At the time of this posting, Fox News Insider's poll of WHO WON THE THIRD DEBATE has Obama with 61.2% and Romney at 38.8% ~~ Fox News Insider
In conclusion, no one thought Romney won the debate, many undecided have finally fallen into the Obama camp, and Romney has again left us with some really stupid sound bites.
