In the final debate who made the better case for being our nation's commander-in-chief?

“ Last night America saw a president in command and a challenger in retreat from his own positions. Obama dominated the stage and the discussion at Lynn University.

“ GOP presidential challenger Mitt Romney clearly defeated President Barack Obama in the third presidential debate held Monday night at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida. Unlike viewers witnessed in the last two presidential debates, Bob Schieffer, who was the moderator of the debate from CBS News, was more even-handed in his method of questioning and in his responsiveness to the two candidates. There were no controversies as caused by CNN correspondent Candy Crowley’s unjust insertion regarding Libya or other inappropriate interferences. The third debate with Schieffer’s degree of fairness and professionalism, naturally, allowed a more honest debate emerge for the viewers.
