No crowd cheering allowed. Not sure if that helps or not. I would think it isn’t helpful for Romney.

But Obozo droning on without a crowd also makes him seem intolerable.

Right out of the gate...it’s 0bama and the Big Gubmint Solution versus Mittens and the Not-Quite-So-Big Gubmint.

And, the Liar in Chief just called Romney’s economic plan “Central Economic Planning”...LOL...

The “Baggy Eyed Bolshevik” at the moderator’s desk. Hussein is trying to run out the clock, with his glib answers that don’t say anything substantive.

1st question and Obama didn't even answer it. Now, as Mitt is talking to him, he can't even look Mitt in the eyes. Obama is lost without a TelePrompTer and his opening remarks were reruns of his past talking points. Mitt's going to kick his ass.

Why does Barry keep looking down? He’s hardly making eye contact with Romney.

It helps.
No union thugs to pack the audience and distract from what is being said. Romney has BO on the ropes already and this just started.

Obama shot gunning issues, Romney responding effectively to each but too much going on in one question to really follow the depth of what’s being said.

Isn't interesting that Mr. Lehrer of the oh-so-Liberal PBS chose not to include a single question about foreign policy for tonight's debate?

No doubt giving Obozo and Hillary plenty of time to get all their lies in order before the next debate.

So far Lehrers questions to Obama are all “Would you like to tell us why Romney’s plans are bad?”

Where is the beef? thought there would be 100s of posts already. I turned up the sound to listen to Mitt. He sounded good to me.
Mitt. I have 5 boys, I am used to people saying things that aren’t true that hoping I will think they are true ....mr prez, you keep saying it but it isn’t true (tax plan)

Obama is defaulting to stump speech to southern black churches and is trying not to stray, but he doesn’t have substance to back up the figures.

Romney is eating his lunch.

Why does Barry keep looking down? He’s hardly making eye contact with Romney.

For the same reason Barry removed the Churchill bust from the Oval Office -- he's uncomfortable in the presence of his betters.
