LIVE BLOG: Share Your Thoughts During the First Presidential Debate

Visit Patch’s live blog while you’re watching Wednesday’s debate to share your thoughts on how the candidates are doing.

At 8 p.m. Oct. 3, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will square off at the University of Denver for the first presidential debate of the season.

Domestic policy is the topic of the evening. Moderator Jim Lehrer, executive director of PBS News Hour, will oversee six 15-minute segments—the first three segments focusing on the economy and the last three focusing on health care, the role of government and governing.

Throughout the debate, Patch will be moderating a live blog where users can share their thoughts in real time, participate in polls and post photos from debate-watching parties. We’ve also invited state legislators, political candidates, party activists and other movers and shakers across the state to offer their expertise.

So Romney is gonna wave a magic wand and increase spending on military, education, healthcare, and cut taxes on the rich and middle class, and reduce the deficit. And it all get paid for because of all the jobs created when the rich get richer. I don't think Ann Romney even believes that.

He's going to ask his dad for the money, right? I heard him say he has alot of plans, but no specifics. As Ronald Reagan said "there you go again".

Most of my friends and family are Democrats and major Obama supporters. This morning my FB feed was quiet as an empty chair in an empty room. Not ONE comment from anyone of them about the debate. Regardless of who you support, I think that speaks volumes.

None of these politicians ever do what they promise. However, the current administration is just not doing the job. Time for a change.
