    Romney likes to use the word "crushed" and Obama likes to gesture his hands like he is holding a hamburger. And the debate moderator just needs to shut up and let the canidates speak. I don't think anyone tuned in to hear him interupt either canidate when it was their turn to make a statement.

    The moderator is there to keep the debate on track, though.
    Politicians are experts at going off point, evasion and misdirection.
    Until politicians can debate the points properly, moderators need to be there to put them back on topic'

    The moderator was kind of annoying to me.

    After watching tonights VP debate,I have come to the conclusion that if it isn't someone's turn to speak,their mic should be turned off. I couldn't care less how funny you think the other guy is being. Keep your huffs and giggles to yourself.
