Lady Gaga: Mitt Romney 'Surprisingly Weak' in Final Debate

Rolling Stone

Lady Gaga was less than impressed with Mitt Romney's performance during last night's presidential debate. In a Facebook post asking fans to share their thoughts on how Barack Obama and Romney fared, the singer kicked off the conversation by expressing her own views.

"Thought Romney's foreign policy debate style was surprisingly weak, not knowledgeable," Gaga noted. "Thought the president was passionate and knowledgeable and modern. Felt almost like he kept poker face last two debates and then came like Rocky."

A few other musicians took to social media last night to comment on the debate, the candidates' third and final encounter before Election Day on November 6th. Echoing Gaga's observation about Romney's lack of specifics, will.i.am tweeted, "Moderator: Romney how are you going to pay for bigger military??? Romney: ahhhhh mum go visit my website . . . wow." Added Busta Rhymes, "Obama smackin' the shit outta Romney early . . . as he should!"
