    I for one find the use of "Barry" as shallow and manipulative. It is disheartening and counterproductive when people resort to such slights. If there is a point to be made, it is best done using reason and civil dialog, not with ad hominem attacks and school-yard tactics. As soon as someone resorts to such antics, I for one tend to tune out the rest of what they are saying, because I trust neither their motives nor their reasoning. Of course, the same applies to those declining to use Romney's chosen name and using something like Willie.

    It was Barry's "deer in the headlights vacant stare" in the first debate that will end up costing him his re-election. He is busy trying to put a positive spin on his dropping poll numbers.

    Maybe Mr. President to you. I respect the office, but not Barry.

    * Took him two weeks to get off the video kick.

    * uses an executive order to stop an investigation of thousands of American weapons to Mexican cartels. Weapons used to kill men, women, and children.

    Go ahead! Defend him.

    I may be a Republican, but I believe Obama has been quite good in foreign affairs. Romney never had much hope of taking an edge in this category. He should be happy with a tie, and he came close to that tonight. Really, his main goal tonight needed to be to put undecided voters at ease that he could be at least OKAY at foreign affairs, so they can turn their attention to what they really care about, which is the economy, deficit, unemployment. I think he did that.

    Romney's etch a sketch was working overtime. it was nice of him to write I agree with Obama and think he is doing great job on foreign policy though. We will see what his etch a sketch says to morrow.
