President Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney debated last night at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida. The candidates faced off on foreign policy for the last and final presidential debate before the election on Nov 6.
The second presidential debate and town hall meet between Republican nominee Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama was held tonight at Hofstra University in Long Island, N.Y.
This debate was heated… I think I lost my voice yelling at the television… The duo debated on topics such as education, women’s right, taxes, immigration, gas prices and more. The set up was far different from the first, both Obama and Romney answered questions from a not-so-diverse group of folks. If you missed it…. you gotta check it out below.
With election right around the corner, it only makes sense that President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama grace the cover of any or every magazine cover… well, this time around… its the November 2012 issue of EBONY.
Excerpts to come soon…
What the hell just happened last night… Was Obama sleeping or something? I needed some hours to get my thoughts together because… I’m just in shock. The first of four debates for the 2012 Election. Republican candidate Mitt Romney and Democratic President Barack Obama went face to face at the University of Denver on Oct 3 in Denver, Colorado. The debate was moderated by PBS’s Jim Lehrer and the topics included domestic issues: the economy, health care and the role of government.
This is only round one… the men will face off two more times while the Vice Presidential debate will be held next week. This election is very important and will be a close call. You can make a difference by registering to vote THEN VOTE.

Hours before President Obama attend Bey & Jay‘s re-elect fundraising dinner on 25th street in Flatiron area of NYC, the Commander-In-Chief hit Midtown at the Ed Sullivan Theater on Broadway for a guest appearance on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman,’ show.
During the interview, President Obama slams Mitt Romney’s controversial comments about not caring about 47 percent of Americans. “One of the things I learned as president is you represent the entire country. If you want to be president, you have to work for everyone… When I won in 2008, 47 percent of the American people voted for John McCain. They didn’t vote for me and what I said on election night was: ‘Even though you didn’t vote for me, I hear your voices, and I’m going to work as hard as I can to be your president.’”
“All of us make mistakes,” Obama said, but “what people want to know, though, is you’re not writing off a big chunk of the country because the way our democracy works.” – “This is a big country. And people disagree a lot, but one thing I’ve never tried to do – and I think none of us can do in public office – is suggest that because someone doesn’t agree with me that they’re victims or they’re unpatriotic,” Obama said.
