@McGentrix,
He's also one of my few ignores, but isn't he technically on your "team"?

@McGentrix,
for what it's worth, I would rather read your opinion.

I get tired of rush...

I refuse to go on a H2Zero thread. I know others who feel the same. Maybe all the others who have him on Ignore will move here.

Quest 1 part 2 - Syria

Looks like they have similar answers. I'd call it a tie. A jab by Obama that didn't land. Romney returned with a couple jabs of his own, but it's a difficult topic and they both want the same objective.

Q1 P2 addendum - Egypt

Obama gave a very long winded rambling answer. Hard to keep track of what it was he actually said.

Romney just slammed Bush?

Erg. He shouldn't have stepped back. He had a good answer and should have stopped.

Good bringing the economy into it, scripted answer though. Obama looks serious, thats good. I like a President that looks serious.

Q2 Americas role in the world?

Romney - Economy, good jab. Employment, good. Obama is getting impatient and looks it.

Obama - Terrorists and Afghanistan. Allies look to us for guidance, His plan? What plan? Problem is he has these plans, but they haven't been implemented yet. One of my issues with Obama as an incumbent. Tried to tie Romney to Bush and Cheney? Get over it already.

Followup - Reminder of Obama's promises. Energy independence, trade, hitting Obama weak points. Small business, good, but this whole topic is a very narrow discussion of foreign policy.

I give the edge on this topic to Romney

Obama is interrupting to get his points in.

Obama on military spending - not getting on the Romney tax break bus. Military spending has increased every year under Obama?

Romney - business experience, bipartisan, balanced budgets. On military - small navy, need more boats. Update AF. Sequestration and Obama budget cuts.

Edge still Romney - Obama's interrupting, down talking, not Presidential.

@McGentrix,
Romney's business experience is LTA as a POTUS. Romney's business experience was to make money for his investors not to create jobs and build an economy as a national leader.

Q3 Israel & Iran

Obama - He didn't want to say that about attacking Israel like he did. Rehearsed answer on Iran. Good, but rehearsed.

Romney - Tough on Iran! Whew! Similar answer to Obama, planned ahead of time.

Obama - The clock is ticking... to what?

Romney - Iran sees weakness in US due to Obama's early presidency.

Obama keeps looking at the teacher to let him know he wants to say something.

His Tour has commonly been referred to as "the apology tour".

Obama makes points with his last words.

Romney has strong points as well in his follow up.

Obama got last word

Israel & Iran - Both started with canned responses, follow ups good jabs.

Edge - Obama. Experience with the actual events gives him gravitas.

Q4 - What if Afghans are not ready for us to leave?

Romney - too bad. We're leaving in 2014 if he is President. Good bit on Pakistan. Showing off the knowledge of the area and a bit of foreign affairs knowledge.

Obama - Still waiting on his answer to the question... Never did answer the question.

Q5 - Rise of China
What is the greatest threat?

Romney has the win so far on this. Romney has the business experience with real life companies that work with China. Obama has the theory of it. Good that Obama has done stuff with China, but I think Romney has the acumen to deal with China, more so then Obama.
