Romney says he'll cut 5% of the discretionary budget to get to balanced budget within 8-10 years without shrinking military.
Obama: The math simply doesn't work. #CNNDebate
"We need to be thinking about space," says Obama. Space.
Romney is asked about military spending, but chooses instead to detail his plan for cutting the federal debt. Seeing the opening, Obama answers the Romney supports military spending the military itself doesn't even want
A lot of conversation on social media about the Undecideds - see it ONLY on the CNN screen.
Romney: I want to make sure we have the ships that are required by our Navy. #CNNDebate
"The President hasn't balanced a budget yet." -@MittRomney #CNNDebate
Obama: "The sequester is not something that I proposed."
Obama on ship numbers: We also have fewer horses and bayonets.
Obama: Not a game of Battleship.
You could cut the snark with a knife: "We have aircraft carriers now. You can land planes on them."
"We've visited the website quite a bit, and it still doesn't work," says Obama.
Now we'll hear about Israel and Iran...
Nobody's winning this - both being equally safe/calm/dull. #PMTdebate
Time for some TRIVIA - leave your answer in the comments - "How many debates has Bob Schieffer moderated, including this one?"
Obama: I will stand with Israel if they are attacked. #CNNDebate
President says the sequester isn't going to kick in. "Not going to happen." Huh. #CNNdebate
Moderator Bob Schieffer asks: Red lines, Israel and Iran: Would either of you... be willing to declare that an attack on Israel is an attack on the United States? If you made such a declaration, would it deter Iran?
O says he will stand w Israel if attacked. If Israel is attacked with a nuclear weapon, his support will be a little late.
Obama's resposne: "Israel is a true friend, it is our greatest ally in the region. ... I will stand with Israel if they are attacked... as long as I am president of the United States, Iran will not get a nuclear weapon.... a nuclear Iran is a threat to our national security and Israel's national security."
Sorry guys I just accidentally deleted that last poll. Will try again in a few minutes.
