He had no acceptable explanation. It was a crucial slip up.

The wisest thing was definitely to spin Romney as a petty asshole.

Hahaha that was a complete collapse from Romney. Obama didn't really know what to do either. They went way off the script there.

I like that Romney brought up the cultural aspect of gun violence, but he went waaaaaaaay off topic. I was almost impressed. Not so much now.

That along with the clapping from the crowd was pretty classic.

The moderator should not fact check a candidate on something where the statement may be factually incorrect but the point behind the statement is, indeed, correct. Overall the moderator should shut the hell up.

I am actually shocked that gun control has come up. I am less shocked that neither guy wants to just come out and say "I'm going to get the guns... period"

The fact that we're afraid to go after the guns is the real issue.

Mitt thinks a Mom and a Dad can prevent gun violence. Didn't Holmes have one of each?

Or is he excluding gun violence committed by white people?

Romney has rerferred to Canada before concerning their 15% corporate tax.

OK, if Canada is the model, why not follow their Health Care System?

This bit on jobs not coming back and wanting high skill jobs here may have been the most out-of-touch thing I've heard Obama say.
