Quips, Criticisms: Readers Weigh in on Debate

See what voters across the Hudson Valley wrote live during Tuesday's second Presidential Debate.

Jobs, Libya and the Middle Class were the cardinal subjects, with a generous dosage of anxious pacing and thinly-veiled indignation blended in, too.

President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney squared off Tuesday night at Hofstra University for their second debate of the election season, this time housed in a town hall format.

A panel of undecided voters asked questions that addressed energy, gun control and education.

Readers from Westchester, Putnam and Rockland sounded off live on Patch as Obama and Romney sparred—residents shared their opinions, and relevant personal stories.

Patch readers from Long Island and New York City were able to jump in, as well, along with Twitter users from across the country.
