We need one more debate....Romney debating Romney....past positions versus more current positions on the issues....people need to hear and/ or see the juxtaposition of opinions past and present as he drifts and adjusts to the moment....a split screen with video clips of Romney explicating all sides of an issue would be so informative.

I think president Obama won on the facts and on presentation. But I really wish he would call Romney on his assertion that the top 1% pays "60%" in taxes. He gives the impression that that is the rate they pay, when it's not. They earn 99% of the income in this country (what a disgrace!) but they only pay 60% of the total tax bill, meaning they pay at least 30% less than the rest of us who dont have passive income.
Also have issues with his comments on women. He seems to assume only women need flextime, because they're the ones who take care of the home; and i'd like to see his binder full of us.
