Campbell Reacts to the Second Presidential Debate

Residents commented on Tuesday night's debate via Twitter and Facebook.

The second Presidential debate was a more contentious one than the first round and Campbell Patch readers on social media responded and shared all about it for its duration.

According to our non-scientific poll posted on the site during the debate, Romney clinched the victory with 98 votes or 56 percent while President Barack Obama trailed behin with 74 votes or 43 percent (results as of Oct. 17, 12:43 a.m.).

On Facebook, Obama was named the victor:

There you have it. The second presidential debate. In your opinion, who do you think came out the victor?

  • Brenda Tierney Obama
  • Vanessa Sh The president!
  • Julia Jensen "Mr. President, have you checked your pension?"
  • Sinead Mc Donnell Borgersen I have but not as big as yours so doesn't take as long to read. Oh snap. President took it home
  • Cynthia Gonzalez Sebastian Obama : )
  • Carolyn Kori Sanders Obama:-)
  • Joe Kenny Obama!
  • Ami Bruce Obama.
  • Lydia Habr Obama for sure.

Anyone watching the debate? Thoughts?

  • Rachael Bellah Yes, I wish Gary Johnson was in this debate. lol
  • Monique Acosta Ya. I think they're both a couple of mooks.
  • Eddie Martinez Obama won he kicked ass this time
  • Gloria Reyes I think Obama "let the dog out" on this one. I believe he has recovered some points he lost. I also see that Romney still has a problem with beating around the bush before he gets to the answer. admittedly, they both do.
  • John Sotelo like it or not, we'll get the government we deserve.
  • Campbell Patch @John Sotelo: Interesting comment! Care to elaborate?
  • John Sotelo both candidates have undesirable traits and mostly feed from the same trough. we have become tolerant and accepting of such behavior. therefore, we are complicit. therefore, we are deserving of nothing more than the monster we have created.

On Twitter, this is what readers said:

No standing behind podiums this time. Better? Worse?

This election is not about which party can out do, out lie, but about all of the Americans that have lost their jobs and/or their homes. Watching their job moved to overseas or the workplace they have worked for years close their doors. It's about our children that will go to bed tonight hungry. I just honest believe for this time in our country we need the experience of a business man like Mitt Romney.

It's down to picking the least of two evils...morally ( not pefect to clarify) and business intelligence wise Romney takes precedents....and coming from a woman, I shudder to think what will happen if our current President remains with the allowance of Shariah Law slowly seeping in. I agree with KMD...media hides truths and is controlled...not really being a free media and speech entity does not gain my trust and belief. I don't watch nor will I debate here but those are just my two cents.

Any one awake?

Yes, Obama is more extreme on women because he supports Shariah Law. Don't let your opinion be affected by the Lilly Ledbetter Act, Romney's positions on contraception and abortion, or the lack of evidence that Shariah Law is actually "slowly seeping in" to our legal system. Who needs facts when you have fear!
