    This stuff instead of Mitt the lying fraud debating a caricature of what I thought was our president.

      Obama had no responsibility to call out the lies?  I just don't get it.

      The candidates have their opportunities to speak, which they can use by refuting their opponent's lies or else talking about their own positions and accomplishments.  The moderator, apparently, needs to be "neutral", which involves letting lies stand.  When one debater is honest and the other is a perpetual liar, what is there in a debate format to counteract that?
