Guam - Here at home, island residents watched the presidential debate cheering on their candidates. Democrat Regine Biscoe Lee said, "I think he's doing extremely well extraordinarily well; just showing his wide range of diplomatic skills and just the fact that he's really ready to lead us to continue to lead us especially in the area of foreign policy and Governor Romney really is not prepared just in the way he answered specific questions with Libya preventing Iran from developing further nuclear weapons just a whole host of issues. President Obama is showing especially in today's debate that we don't want to bring our foreign policy back we want to bring it forward. So I think he's doing a really great job."

And former Republican Party of Guam chairman Phil Flores said, "I thought it went well for both of them. I think President Obama again why trying to be more forceful; he had that stern unhappy look on his face and he was a little sarcastic when he was talking about aircraft carriers as it Governor Romney didn't know what they were, but he needs to act like he's fully charged because he had such a listless first debate which caused the whole momentum to switch to Governor Romney. I think Governor Romney was very careful in what they were saying if you notice quite often they agreed with each other on drones, Israel so I thought Governor Romney did a great job.
