Speak Out: Who Won the Third Obama-Romney Debate?

Tell us: In last meeting before the Nov. 6 election, which presidential candidate performed best in Monday's debate?

President Barack Obama and Republican hopeful Mitt Romney met Monday night for their third and final debate this election season, this time coming to the same table to answer questions on national security, the war in Iraq and jobs overseas, among other topics.

The candidates also sparred on military spending, with Romney making a case for an expanded Naval fleet in a plan to increase military spending.

Obama, who says he's met with military leaders to develop a reduced budget for the country's armed forces, said Monday that Romney's hike is money "our military doesn't need," noting the country also has " fewer horses and bayonets."

"We have these things called aircraft carriers and planes land on them. We have ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines," Obama said.

The debate, in Boca Raton, Fla., was the last chance for both candidates to make a pitch to undecided voters across the country just two weeks before Election Day on Nov. 6.

The score, before Monday night's debate, was 1-1, experts say: Romney largely took the first debate, while Obama performed better in the candidates' second meeting at Hofstra University in New York.

Tell us: Who performed better at Monday's debate? Were there any questions you would have liked asked? Did the debate strengthen or hurt either campaign? Was there a clear winner?

Jody, I couldn't let your comment about "illegal alien states" having more electoral votes stand. Don't Texas and Arizona have the biggest illegal immigration problem in the country? And didn't those states' electoral votes go to Romney?

OMG, this Jody person is really nuts, isn't she? I thought that I had flushed them all out, but as the herd thins after the election, some of these others become more apparent. I am sorry, but I have to meet somebody for late night cocktails, so I am am tagging this thread to try and come back to hear more from this Jody person. I can tell that there are some gems floating around in this person's dome.

Don, the Retropubs still need to get together. Maybe Friday or Saturday night? Jody didn't see your post till yesterday. We should see if we can get everyone together for a drink somewhere. Hope your keyboard is working now!

@KEL - Very classy with the "Retropubs." It's a nice "Demoncratic" touch.

The fact is true regarding electoral votes. Did the crack down on illegals in Arizona cause flight to other states? I think California has more illegals than any other state.
