2012 Presidential debates
Join the conversation as the candidates square off and watch it live here.

7:12 PM PT: Obama says that when Gov Romney says he'll replace Obamacare with something, bu can't explain with what, it reminds him of when he says he won't raise taxes on the middle-class but can't explain how or that he'll replace Dodd-Frank but can't explain with what. And then he hammers Romney for basically keeping his plans secret.

"Is the reason that Governor Romney keeping all these plans secret because their too good?" Obama asks.

7:13 PM PT: Romney's response is that it would be presumptuous of him to outline a plan because he'd be saying "My way or the highway." Hmm. That doesn't seem like a winner to me.

7:16 PM PT: I think that was a key moment when Obama called out Romney for refusing to say what his health care plan would be. On so many different things, Romney is just making promises—but refusing to explain how he'd do implement those promises.

7:17 PM PT: Funny how the Mitt Romney that cares so much about people didn't show up in that 47 percent video...

7:18 PM PT:
Romney doesn't really think all of us should be able to pursue happiness. There is that constitutional ban on same-sex marriage he supports

7:19 PM PT:
Massachusetts has union teachers, everyone of whom has done much more that Mitt Romney to produce educated kids.

7:23 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): New thread here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
