What Time is the Second Presidential Debate?

The second presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will be held Oct. 16 at 9 p.m.

 

Nearly 60 million people tuned in Oct. 3 to watch the first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

In that first confrontation, viewers and pundits claimed that Romney won, and his campaign got a bump in the polls as a result. Will Obama vindicate himself this time?

There will be one more debates before election day.

Here's the remaining debate schedule:

Tonight's event is a corporate-sponsored commercial for the two major parties with no chance of a third or fourth voice speaking about anything whatsoever.

Let's see if Romney can answer questions he does not seem to answer as far as what taxes he will raise. Everyonse so bugged out on what Obama will or will not raise but as he said we might have to go up first, then go down. Guaranteed if Romney gets in office I will have a good laugh at a bunch of you. At least Obama is giving you the truth in what has to be done and you hate to admit that things are getting better, just keep finding faults. WE ARE TRYING TO COME OUT OF THE MESS GEORGE BUSH PUT US IN AND I WILL NOT LET YOU FORGET THAT. IT'S FUNNY HOW QUICK BUSH WAS FORGOTTEN AND OBAMA BLAMED. Lmao! only in America

Mr. Obama has tried, no doubt, but it's the two-party system that has to go. Open up the window and let in some fresh air. There's barely any air to breathe, and what's left is stale, plus it's really stifling. They and we, the whole country is suffocating.

Yeah ... After four years, it's STILL Bush's fault. It appears that the Democrats' concept of Leadership is avoiding Responsibility for their failures by continually blaming The Other Guy. We need a Leader, not a Whiner!
