Obama has a national and global perspective. I just returned from a vacation in Europe. Unsolicited comments overwhelmingly supported Obama and a new respect for the US. These comments came from college students, shop keepers and university professors. There is no question that Obama is a truly great president. Will women get equality? Will my grand daughter be able to make her own choices about her health? The Supreme Court can aid in the support of women's rights or they can reduce women to answering to men about their lives, their pay their status. If the Republicans get in then women will remain second class citizens. Women will always find a way to an abortion and if it is illegal there is plenty of documentation about the results of back room abortions. Women hold up more than half the sky and it is time we give them credit and the respect they deserve.

Obama won, hands down. He had a command of the facts and issues. Romney was weak and ill informed...actually scary how little he knew except for reciting his notes. He showed a lack of leadership.

Your points are well taken. I too believe that Obama is well respected internationally and is considered a great leader and representitive of our country. Let's hope that the majority of Americans have the intelligence to understand that. Romney made a mockery of himself when in London at the Olympics and the Brits were all over him for it.

Romney was the overall winner in my eyes. He appeared presidential where Obama looked like a petulant little boy trying to throw barbs in whenever he could. Obama was unable to paint Romney as a warmonger as he had hoped. Obama was wrong on several point (I won't call it a lie) Obama seemed to be trying to pick a fight and he came off as immature. Romney came off as a measured, thoughtful man who had a total understanding of our foreign policy situation. To his credit, he did not add to the President's embarrassment over Libya. the President looked especially artificial when he kept talking about "our dear friend Israel", when he has decidedly put a huge divide in the relationship.

Marina, I am glad you listened to the debate and take the time to comment and share your views. Do you think Romney can add 12 million jobs to our economy? Or that another war in the mid east is wise? Or that we pay more percentage in taxes than a millionaire? Romney says anything depending on whose vote he is aiming for at the moment? It seems he has yours. But if someone was smirking at you when you were talking would you stand for it? Obama added a little humor so c'mon. We have all faced that condensing smile in our lives and you know it means they pity us. That we are so pathetically beneath them that they suffer just to have to be in our presence. Obama inherited the Republican disaster and has turned it around in spite of Republican solid block of resistance. I think the next four will show that the team can work together and we will continue our road to a healthy America.
