Tamar Braxton, Gabrielle Union, Tyrese And More TWEET Reactions To The 2012 Presidential Debate


The 2012 Presidential Debates kicked off last night and tons of celebs were on Twitter sharing their feedback.  Find out what folks like Chris Rock, Mary J. Blige and Tamar Braxton had to say inside....


President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney faced off last night in the first Presidential Debate of 2012 where both laid out plans to make America's economy stronger.

Before he began, President Obama wished Michelle a happy 20th wedding anniversary, with Mitt Romney joking that he knows the President wishes this could have been a more romantic evening.

Our whole take on this debacle of a debate? Mitt Romney came out swinging with lies, omissions and flip flops and made them sound believable, which arguably could be called "Presidential". President Obama shockingly fell back TOO much, acted like he had 0 f**ks to give, and missed several opportunities to snatch Romney's wig.  And the moderator's CHAIR could have done a better job at keeping this debate fair and in order.  It was a fail all around and we were frustrated.  And we're hoping this was all strategy for a bigger POW from Obama down the line.

Meanwhile, all over the country, YBF celebs were tweeting comments about the debate.  Here's what some YBF celebs said.....


Gabrielle Union I am so pumped for this debate! I'm stretching, doing high knees...cracking my neck...let's do this folks. Bring it #Debates AND Did The President just say "Math, common sense and history..."

Passivity does not equal

Passivity does not equal defeat and Aggression does not equal victory...FACTS are FACTS! Give me a President with a plan over a President with enthusiasm during debates ANYDAY!!! #Obama2012

Obama took the chess game

Obama took the chess game strategy and not checkers....Let him put all his LIES out there and he will know how to come at him next time. There are 2 more debates and Willard Romney will have no ANSWER! Smart, cool and collective......

Had Obama conducted himself

Had Obama conducted himself like Romney last night, interrupting, talking over and going waaaay over the allotted time, headlines would have been, "President Obama ANGRY", President did not act PRESIDENTIAL, "President was rude", blah, blah, blah, yaaaaaaawn. The standard for blacks are ALWAYS different. He would've been the angry black man had he done what Romney did.

I was so disappointed last

I was so disappointed last night that Obama didnt get in Romney's a** in fact Obama looked not as confident and actually annoyed at times.

I have mixed feelings about

I have mixed feelings about the debate. I don't think Obama was unprepared for the debate, but instead I believe he has invested too much faith in the people to realize Romney's main objectives, which clearly benefit a specific class of people. Although, we caught on to Romney's flip flopping and lies I'm sad to regret a lot of other people just didn't get it. Sorry, but people are stupid. Romney's answers held no value, but because he was confident and aggressive with his answers it turns out to be just enough for people to be convinced that he is the one. It was almost arrogant for Obama to just sit back and allow Romney to pop off lies while he sat back and held his laughter inside. Hopefully this is just a strategy to where he can follow up with Romney on the second debate. My other feelings are maybe Obama is just tired. I don't think any other president has had much of a hard time as Obama.

My thoughts exactly! I cosign

My thoughts exactly! I cosign your entire comment! It amazes me how many people believed Mittens last night, when his whole campaign has been exactly the opposite of EVERYTHING he said last night. The republicans are experts at smoke & mirrors.

Neither candidate swayed

Neither candidate swayed voters their way, which is good because Romney is still losing. Romney is too corporate and Corporate America does not belong in the White House. Too many inexperienced people running companies is what got us in this mess in the first place!

Obama's debate rustiness

Obama's debate rustiness showed. First debate: work out the kinks. Observe your opponent's style. VP debate: Let the VP get a few test jabs in. Ain't no telling what will fly out of Biden's mouth. And no one will care - it's just Crazy Joe at it again. Second debate: Obama will go hard. He's seen Romney at his best and most desperate. The third: Everyone will just be putting icing on the cake. Gonna be an interesting 30 days!

Neither one won this debate

Neither one won this debate IMO, Mitt was just more aggressive because he was blatantly breaking the rules! There should be repercussions some how for doing that. I mean what's the point of a moderator if you're not going to listen? The next moderator needs to have a back bone and should talk over either side if they decide to go over and get out of pocket. I STRONGLY believe Obama has something for that ass next time around LOL!

Many think Obama could have

Many think Obama could have come out more aggressive, but I feel he handled it very well & was in command of what is FACTUAL & gave examples & statistics. He was able to provide possible solutions!! When Mittens was asked his plan to increase employment, he did not have a clue!!! Everything was directed at what he feels Obama should have done over the last 4 years, but no solid solutions to the "problems." Mittens is just another GWB...just a different suit & face.

I just have to say, not all

I just have to say, not all Black people have the vote the same, think the same, be the same. Being a conservative or a republican doesn't make you a sell out, and being a democrat or a liberal doesn't make you a saint. Do YOU. Personally, I think ALL politicians are liars. They say WHATEVER THEY HAVE TO SAY TO GET ELECTED. Black ones lies, White ones lie, Hispanic ones lie. So if you are waiting for the president or any other politician to improve your life, YOU ARE A CONFUSED LOSER. You are the only one who can improve your situation. So quit complaining and playing the victim and get to work!

It’s sad to see that some

It’s sad to see that some people think the one who speaks the loudest is considered the winner. Mittens (I like that), didn’t bring anything new last night. He did polish off his original smack that he was spewing earlier in his campaign. Your President did well, but because of the barking from the opposite he missed some opportunities, but nothing detrimental. Clash just start …Early juggling…waiting for CHUNE FI CHUNE!

so, you agree then.....,,.and

so, you agree then.....,,.and can't vote b/c you are not American (no need to speak in-code my friend.......I'm too fucking smart for that shit)

I agree. Just wonder if Mitt has enough in his gas bag for the next round.

Hopefully The President let

Hopefully The President let this happen and plans to pick him apart then finish strong (David Axelrod.....is a GENIUS and i can't see him leading Obama to a bad strategy)...................
