Raul M. Grijalva (D) @RepRaulGrijalva

The "@BarackObama is too smart for his own good" bandwagon is shrinking by the minute. Interesting Sunday talk shows this week. #debate #p2

Raul M. Grijalva (D) @RepRaulGrijalva

#PaulRyan told the country he and #MittRomney have no differences on foreign policy. Big arm-waving now won't change it. #debate #p2

Raul M. Grijalva (D) @RepRaulGrijalva

If "apology tour" is the biggest zinger #MittRomney memorized tonight, someone should be fired. #debate #p2

Raul M. Grijalva (D) @RepRaulGrijalva

No path for #DREAMAct eligible students from #MittRomney? As a pure policy matter, that doesn't make any sense. #debate #Latism

Raul M. Grijalva (D) @RepRaulGrijalva

#MittRomney keeps saying @BarackObama has doubled the deficit. Let's just remember that it's total malarkey. http://t.co/PrUjuR6H #debate

"George Bush didn't call for self-deportation" = probably the biggest applause the left will ever give him. #Latism #debate @BarackObama

Raul M. Grijalva (D) @RepRaulGrijalva

If #MittRomney wants to make numbers appear out of nowhere every time they pop in his head, at least sound like he believes in them. #debate

Raul M. Grijalva (D) @RepRaulGrijalva

#MittRomney dodging the "difference with Bush" question by complaining about timekeeping . . . a new low in a night of lows. #debate

Raul M. Grijalva (D) @RepRaulGrijalva

Great answer by @BarackObama - "I'll get back to you on women's equal pay" isn't advocating for the middle class. #debate #MittRomney #jobs

Raul M. Grijalva (D) @RepRaulGrijalva

Shorter #MittRomney - "If you're going to hire women, you'd better have staff who know how to pay them less and get away with it." #debate

Raul M. Grijalva (D) @RepRaulGrijalva

"Of course they add up" = teenager asking for the car keys and the parents want to know where you're going. #debate #MittRomney

Lynn Westmoreland (R) @RepWestmoreland

Lynn Westmoreland (R) @RepWestmoreland

RT @Emma5317: @RepWestmoreland Great job by Ryan! He addressed the issues and didn't hide behind empty rhetoric. Obama can't hide his record.
