What do you get when you combine a Mitt Romney and a Barack Obama?

Watch the 2012 Presidential debates and find out!

The 2012 Presidential debate schedule spans over 4 different dates, allocating various topics for discussing in a myriad of debate formats.  Live streaming of all debates is available on C-SPAN, ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and in the EMU Student Center.  Additionally, online posting walls via Twitter and other social media sites are available during the debates and can found on sites such as the 2012 Presidential Election News.

But for those who may have been too busy engrossing themselves in university studies to watch the entirety of a 90 minute debate, here is a brief run-down of the 2012 debate season:

October 3, 2012: Held at University of Denver.  Topics on Domestic Policy.  Moderated by Jim Lehrer.

October 11, 2012:  (Vice Presidential Debate) Held at Centre College of Danville, KY.  Topics on Foreign and Domestic Policy. Moderated by Martha Raddatz.

October 16, 2012: Held at Hofstra University of Hempstead, NY. Topics on Foreign and Domestic Policy.  Moderated by Candy Crowley.

October 22, 2012: Held at Lynn University of Boca Raton, FL. Topics on Foreign Policy.  Moderated by Bob Schieffer.

It is interesting to note that all of the debates have been hosted by universities.  Also, the gender of the moderators has an even 50/50 split…  All other observations are up to you, though!  So get to it, and start cracking the riddle: “What do you get when you combine a Mitt Romney and a Barack Obama?”
