I say tonight's debate is a draw!

Republicans, Fox and CBS called it a draw. Everyone else in the media show a clear win for President Obama. Spin, spin, spin. Lie, lie, lie...

Everyone? I've seen democrat contributers to news shows call it a draw and actually criticize Barry for his misstatements and rudeness. Of course if you get your info from the Obama news service MSNBC that is probably what you heard. Alot of condemnation of Candy Crowly for running interference for Barry also. I heard lies comming out of the soon to be former presidents mouth last night.
