Nearly 20,000 words were uttered during the first 2012 presidential debate between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.  Some, even those uttered once (Big Bird), will be dissected and argued about ad infinitum until the next presidential debate on October 16. But the most commonly heard words were talking points many expected to be the focus of the night — save maybe 47 percent.

Tax (said 112 times), Medicare (61), businesses (57), health (51), insurance (49), jobs (38) all were among the most stated terms during the 90 minute debate moderated by Jim Lehrer. But instead of telling you, take a look yourself at the top 200 words you heard over and over tonight.
