If you are unable to watch the first 2012 presidential debate on television, above is a live stream of the debate between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.

The debate started off with President Obama wishing his wife a happy 20th anniversary, which is today. And when Romney offered his opening remarks, he jokes, “I’m sure this is the most romantic place you could imagine — here with me.”

What do you think so far, readers? Is anybody pulling ahead in the debate?
