    I disagree...
    Chris,

    I usually agree with you...but not today. While I agree that the office of the POTUS should be respected (I am a veteran and DoD employee), I believe there is a demarcation that should be noted here. During a Presidential debate, the two candidates MUST be treated equally. Allowing someone to state their argument completely and then commenting or debating that argument after they are done is a common courtesy, and should be a CORE VALUE.

    Respecting the office of the POTUS is one thing, letting someone talk over you is another thing.....especially with the VP's tactics during the last debate. If I were Romney, I would've done the same thing.
