10/03/2012 The Romney Comeback Began Tonight By Carter Eskew
The Romney comeback began officially tonight. He didnt just hold the own with his president tonight; he repeatedly schooled the president on jobs, taxes, energy, health care and the deficit. Tonight, Romney erased doubts about his competence and sense of fairness; his performance will transform his standing in the race from a position of weakness and decline to strength and ascendance. Repeatedly, Romney was thematic in his criticisms and his vision; often Obama was left wandering in the weeds.
From the opening question, Romney took command. He deftly managed to make a strong, coherent critique of the presidents economic record in a calm, factual tone. He also repeatedly and effectively disputed Obamas central critique about his tax plan, denying repeatedly that he will lower taxes on the wealthy or add to the deficit. The fact-checkers will have a field day with this, but Romney sounded credible and Obama failed to dent his confident assertions.

Zero’s performance was clearly BUSH’S FAULT!!!
The start of: debates don’t matter articles starts tomorrow morning.
Yep, I heard it.
Nothing ever matters unless it matters, so debates not mattering could be true.
However, its more than Romney winning the debate; its about making this a change election and Romney finally did that.
Interesting also is the fact that after this debate the MSM will not be able to ignore Romney. (they will probably try)
When the WaPo turns on a Lib they know they are screwed.
Who is moderating the next debate? Soledad? They are working out as we speak to help ole Barry out of this mess.
Romney was clearly the better debater tonight.
But it is discouraging to see two progressives up there arguing about nuances in differences in their progressiveness. Both agree that the following are issues the federal government should be deeply involved in: Education, Health Care, Energy, Jobs, and on and on. Their only difference is the degree and type of involvement.
I’m still voting for Romney. But there will be no fundamental shift in American politics under a president Romney. He will drive me nuts once he is in office, should he win.
A vision of competence. That'll suffice...
Chris Christie was DEAD ON! He said that after the debate on Thursday, the race would be turned on it’s head! That is exactly what happened.
I believe that it will be Candy Crowley.
