Regardless of whoever the media decides has "won" this debate, this is going to be the most unapologetic display of American jingoism and imperialism in a long time. Can't wait to hear from the guy who thinks we should invade another middle eastern country and the other guy who doesn't want to invade them but will still murder them with drones for looking at us funny. Can't wait to see both candidates furiously compete to see who can suck Israel's dick the best.

No one wins in this debate. Not the American people and not some kids at a bakery in a Pakistani valley

Regardless of whoever "wins" I promise not to start fights concerning 3rd party candidates. Girl Scout's honor.

"Foreign policy of the 80's, social policy of the 50's and economic policies of the 20's"

"The 1980s called, they want their foreign policy back."

A response from tumblr (which is how I follow this):

Quote
obama just called out romney on his foreign policy inconsistencies so romney responds with the equivalent of “attacking me isn’t gonna solve our problems”

oh my god

Wait a minute, we're talking about small businesses and jobs now? I thought this was about foreign policy.

Jesus, now we're talking about education and the deficit?

Both candidates rightly realize that no one cares about dirty foreigners and switch to talking about what Americans really value: Ourselves.

Wow, Obama's hair is getting grey.  The office of the presidency ages you but damn, he looks ten years older than he did two weeks ago.
