Siga: I dont know why Obama didnt use all those 47% comments by Romney, BAIN Capital and his tax returns to attack his a$$....omo...I feel Obama and his peeps are planning something

Because in a presidential debate you try and focus on issues and not charecter destroying. It makes you look like you cant argue the issues. Now they may use it in a TV ad, but in a debate, not likely unless of course your opponnnet goes there.

It seems the hype about 'my president is black' a la Obama is dead lol... I was caught up in the hype as well, bought 'Dreams of my Father' and 'Audacity of Hope' - thinking it was a 'new dawn' in world politics.... And the most powerful country(dollar power) in the world, with a 'black face and black head' and the now infamous 'change' and 'reset button' - would usher in a new dawn in international relations and help humanity thrive again... However, Obama has shown he's Bush 2.0 - with 'humanitarian intervention' as his tool to destabilise sovereign nations... It's just sad!!

^^^ How was he not rude when he chose not to follow debating rules? If Obama was allowed to cut in as much as Romney did, I'm sure that his ratings wouldnt be THAT low.

Romney was butting in with the little chance he got (even if his points were precise and lethal).

If we are to judge on who followed debating rules, Obama too failed in that at some instances. I don't think this is about who cut in on who the most, the end result in a debate is to convince your audience and Romney did that.

He doesn't have to come to Nigeria, but Obama's action or inaction and lack of love, interest and support for Nigeria is a betrayal to me personally. I really want to see him lose, I really can not forgive him for not showing love to the Most Populous Black Nation. Its a personal insult to me if you ask.
Re: Romney And Obama: Who Won The First Debate? by dammytosh: 3:27pm On Oct 04, 2012
Romney Won.

Obama was clearly on the defensive line and looked very tired. I am sure he will change strategy during the next debate.

Why should he visit Nigeria?? What has Nigeria got to offer?

He hasn't even visited Kenya(his country), yet you want him to visit Nigeria, no??

Nigerians and their arrogance smh... Nigeria is a 5th rate country, without absolutely no say in international politics... undecided

To move the West from the recession, the cost of labour must be critically reviewed. Fact is, the West cannot simply compete with the East Asians with very stringent employment terms and laws

Has Obama got the balls? Has Romney got the balls?

They seem scared of telling the people the truth.

I agree with you. The last four years have shown that its not all about speeches and beautifuly constructed words. He should deal with the real issues.

I am not interested in Nigeria's rating, I am interested in the fact that we all sentimentally backed and prayed a Blackman should take seat in a WhiteHouse and our prayers worked. And we got excited. What did Obama do ? He hasnt visited Kenya, his root. He hasnt visited Nigeria, the ocean of the blackrace. For me, its a personal wish that he does not win. If he wins, I will wish him well.

I expect nothing from a whiteman, I expected a little recognition from a blackman President, if nothing, just positive assertions, and not every minute. 'USA is issuing travel warnings to Americans Living in Nigeria', and am like, wtf!

If we are talking about rules, Obama constantly exceeded the time allocated to each person on each topic. The moderator couldnt stop him. But Romney was always spot on time.

But Mr Romney isn't doing the opposite either, when accused by the President of proposing a $5trillion tax cut for the rich, he emphasised he wasn't going to raised taxes on the middle class nor do it through adding to the deficit, so where will the money be coming from?

Perhaps, he's just a 'figure head', and he doesn't really have much input in the running of the affairs of the country.... Hiliary Clinton, Susan Rice, and Samantha Power are the defacto foreign policy 'president' - and Peter S. Goodman, Timothy Geitner et al control his economic policies...

Obama smh... grin

Betrayal, Yes, Betrayal of my trust, hope and sensitivity. Obama doesnt care about Africa, the Black race and my COuntry. He doesnt simply care. Bush did a lot for Africa, and what did Obama do ? The answer is 'Nothing'.

He hasn't lost touch, the office of the POTUS is a very busy one and it gets even busier when you sleep and dream of the economy and crisis in the middle east.
You can start icing the champagne now cos Obama is winning for sure.

unfortunately the man believed his own hype,next time try not to be easily influenced, always stand back and analyse everything especially anything the press pushes down your throat,and ask questions like what makes this man so special, i asked my self that,there was nothing,no experience.
