TELL US: Will You Watch the Final Presidential Debate?

Are the debates old hat by now, or will the last one offer valuable insight?


The third presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney is scheduled for Monday night. Will you tune in, or have you already tuned out? 

Obama and Romney squared off in two debates earlier this month — on Oct. 3 and Oct. 16 — while the vice presidential debate was held on Oct. 11. 

For some, a third presidential debate on Oct. 22 may be overkill, if they've made their decision on who to vote for already, or just aren't that into politics. On the other hand, debates can offer further insight into the candidates, and, you never know what gems or gaffes could come out. 

So tell us: do you plan to tune into Monday night's final presidential debate? Let us know in the comments.

Seem`s to me as bad as Gaddafi was, we got him to stop from stock pilling chemical weapons, and seeking nukes.IN his case the the crackpot was kept in check for the most part. However with the wonderful arab spring spurred on by this president, we have turned another whole country over to islamic radicals and el qaeda types.Now when they go crazy and kill americans we lay the blame on a guy in LA who made a video, that know one has yet to really see. SINCE 9/11 2001 we have always heard on the news, how protection of US ASSETS were very much bolstered in and around the 9/11 aniversary, SO WHAT HAPPENED HERE. In a on going hot spot Like Lybia, when the ambassador ask`s for more help on top of it.Could it be that Obama was so consumed by the fact he may lose this election he was paying more attention to that, then his current job of being PRESIDENT. Think of it with Obama he never has been president, he has been running ever since he got elected, he is the prepetual candidate.

I'll be watching it. Bob Scheiffer is a no-nonsense reporter, and I do hope he handles the debate when Romney tries to handle HIM, as he(Romney) did with Candy Crowley. As for Darryl Butler's comments, shouldn't Romney tell us what he plans to do pertaining to foreign policy? He will lose votes if he spends the 90 minutes just criticizing President Obama. And the votes he will lose may just propel Obama to a second term.

ONE thing he will do, and say is if an ambassador at an embassy in a hostlie land asks for more security, his pleas`s won`t go unanswered.The irony of this is that Obama himself gave this infamous VIDEO more publicity than anyone in the arab world, talk about throwing coals on a fire.Apoigizing for something that really had nothing to do with it. Bob scheiffer is another southpaw, will see if he plays it straight.For some reason there is this great propensity to be afraid to say anything to disagree with the first mixed race president, for fear of backlash, if this is the case the guy has an open ended check book to do whatever he chooses and to this point he pretty much has, very dangerous presitence to set.
