Speak Out: Who Won the Second Presidential Debate?

Tell us: Did President Barack Obama or Gov. Mitt Romney perform better at Thursday's debate? Did the debate strengthen or hurt either campaign?

President Barack Obama and Republican hopeful Gov. Mitt Romney met Tuesday night for their second debate this election season, this time in a "town hall" format that allowed citizens to ask questions on foreign policy, oil and jobs, among other topics.

The debate, at Hofstra University in New York, was crucial for both candidates, who are less than a month out from the Nov. 6 election.

The candidates' running mates debated last week in Kentucky. Many experts said Vice President Joe Biden came out ahead of Republican candidate Paul Ryan in the meeting.

Some said Obama needed to be more aggressive after a performance in the first debate experts dubbed "passive" and "safe." Romney supporters said he needed to maintain the momentum he gained in his first appearance.

Tell us: Who performed better at Tuesday's debate? Were there any questions you would have liked asked? Did the debate strengthen or hurt either campaign? Was there a clear winner?

Even Romney's own campaign realizes what a gaffe the Syria comment was. http://washingtonpost.com/blogs/election-2012/wp/2012/10/22/fact-check-irans-route-to-the-sea/.

There is just a rash of GOP registration fraud of late all over from FL, VA, PA, OH, AZ. Note, except for AZ - all are swing states. If this is the GOP plan to win the election, they don't deserve anyone's vote. Apparently, they can't run on a platform that wins, so .....

Locally, Nathan Sproul is still at it. He is hiring people to "identify conservative voters" in a number of states. He says he's not being paid by the Republican Party. Right....
