BOCA RATON, FL - The spin room is buzzing as surrogates from both campaigns continue to make the case for their candidate after the third and final presidential debate of the 2012 election cycle. Team Romney thought their candidate showed poise and looked presidential. Team Obama thought their candidate showed experience and credibility on the topic of foreign policy.

"I think on policy after policy Governor Romney laid out a very clear vision about where he wants to take the country and he gave people a great sense of confidence that he would keep them safe and secure." -Romney Senior Adviser Kevin Madden 

"He's [Obama] taken an apologetic tone too often for America and I certainly think Governor Romney stated that fairly and accurately." -New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte

"We did remarkable. Mitt Romney did everything he needed to do and more. Why? Because we have movement.  We have energy. The momentum of this campaign is one where people are moving in our direction." -Romney Senior Adviser Bay Buchanan

"I think that he [Obama] was obviously strong on those issues of national security. What people saw was someone strong and decisive, someone who knows what he believes and says what he believes and you saw a very uncertain Governor Romney." -Obama Senior Adviser David Axelrod

"The President came across this evening as somebody who is strong, as somebody who has been a steady leader and Mitt Romney came across as unsteady." -Obama Campaign Spokesman Jen Psaki
