The left and the media (redundant I know) had a months-long wind-up “Romney is an evil stupid Republican”. And Mitt just walked in and did what McCain would never have been able to do in a million years. He attacked the president with facts and kept his cool. For God’s sake, Obama praised Mitt’s healthcare plan for Mass.!!

Poll shows Romney narrowed gap on empathy. 63% now say Romney cares about their needs and problems (up from 30% before debate.)—

Actually we are ALL deciding the fate of our Republic. And we need to be joined by the few percent of undecideds to seal victory. Calling them retards is plain wrong. A lot of them are just not that attuned to politics but they are not necessarily stupid or uncaring about the country.

Following politics is dirty work nowadays.

Obama was expecting `McCain II’ and got a buzzsaw instead.
Romney did what a challenger is supposed to do and Obama looked like a chump.

"For God’s sake, Obama praised Mitt’s healthcare plan for Mass.!!"

As we watched the debate, we counted 4 times that Obama said he agreed with Romney or eluded to such. I'm surprised that the Commie In Command (CIC) did so. Guess he was trying to look accommodating, but it only helped build on Romney's facts.

If Romney can keep up this level of debate, he has a big chance of winning. I'm encourage.

Guess Obama was wrong.

The undecided voters are now saying: Romney is the one we have been waiting for!

Huge number of the focus group said Romney won and many now voting Romney.

To be fair, CNN focus group shows basically a smaller number making up their minds tonight (and of that, 8 are going Obama and 8 going Romney), but the majority there did say Romney won.

The Luntz group is extremely impressive though....only 2 of 29 or whatever said Obama won, and one college kid changed his vote to Romney.

“Luntz says he’s never seen anything like it.”

We’d never seen such an unqualified person handed a job like that in 2008; one begets the other. Obama is a parrot, reading someone else’s words from his Speak & Spell; take that away, he is incompetent. I don’t think Chrissy Matthews got a tingle tonight; if anything he’s feeling his ulcers flame up.

Rush was absolutely right when he said most Americans were going to see Romney for the first time tonight where it wasn’t via an Obama ad; that is the reason for the reaction Luntz is seeing. Nobody could run interference for The Sultan...

I agree. A lot of the undecideds are people that just also have an attitude that both parties stink, so they need something to get them to go one way or another. Romney at least started that tonight and may have done it for a couple percentage points of undecideds.

I LOVED when Romney basically told Obama “So you want to hire teachers....why not use all that green jobs money?”

That was awesome.

“Guess he was trying to look accommodating, but it only helped build on Romney’s facts.”

I saw that, and believe Obama was trying to look less radical by pretending he and Romney were on the same page. He cannot run on his performance, and has always hidden his true agenda; it was just more of the same “playing American” that Obama did in 2008.

Remember how despots like Sadaam or countries like the USSR seem so strong? And then suddenly something breaks and people realize they really aren’t that powerful and they quickly fall?

We may have seen that with Obama tonight. Up until now, people were afraid to think about taking on Obama. Now he looks weak.

After tonight Obama’s image and power base could crumble fast like the old Soviet Union. This was big.

Funny thing is ... I didnt think Obama did that badly.

But I know Romney did *WELL*, because he finally got out there things I KNEW WERE TRUE but somehow got lost in the shuffle of the campaign.

Like the failed stimulus, like how we have so many unemployed, like the reasons why Obamacare sucks.

Obama said nothing new, and his attacks on Romney were completely and utterly demolished. Obama is reduced to complaining that Romney - Mr 89-page-plan and 5 point Plan and powerpoint this ... DOESNT HAVE ENOUGH SPECIFICS.

Funny, but I heard nothing but same old same old gibberish from Obama on HIS plan to cut the deficit (hint: he has none).

Phew! Weak!!!!

Obama was actually right about that. The Democrats won’t like Romney trying to repeal Obamacare. And no one should care. But unfortunately Romney didn’t even try to argue why he needs more Republicans to be elected in Congress to get his plans through.

Romney needs to double down on this and drive home his messages on Obamacare, Medicare, spending, deficit etc.

It is really really funny watching the incompetence of the Obama campaign surrogates on display on the post Debate spin. They were so arrogantly certain of their man that they are out there mindlessly repeating the talking points they were given before the debate. It is painfully embarrassing to watch them fumble about trying to spin this disaster.

RIGHT. And it totally undercuts the ‘those radical extremist Republicans are taking aware healthcare’ because, well, somehow Obama and Romney are on the same page ?!?

Romney supports a bipartisan medicare reform while Obama is robbing it of $700 b. LOL. So much for ‘mediscare’!

One thing is for sure, at this years press correspondence dinner Jim Lerher will get a milk crate to sit at at the back door.

Jim Lerher was suppose to be asking questions with skewed liberal promises, that’s the mainstream media’s oath. He may well be excommunicated if not burned at the stake.

Jim ole boy, your in a fix now, it’s time to start spending your days at the horse track. No book deal! No invite to Dan Rather’s house!

>> Obama was channeling loser John McCain in this debate. Romney is 1000% better than McCain in debates <<

I thought McCain handled himself fairly well against Obama in the debates. In the first debate he ran circles around Obama because it was on foriegn policy and clearly showed he was the more knowledgeable and experienced candidate, in the second debate nobody won because they both put me to sleep and made no effort, and in the third party, they both scored points so it was pretty much a tie.

I don't get where this "Obama is a masterful orator" BS comes from. I've watched Obama debate Bobby Rush (2000 primary), Dan Hynes and Blair Hull (2004 primary), Alan Keyes (2004 general), Hillary Clinton (2008 primary), and John McCain (2008 general) and each of his opponents has held their own against him on the debate stage.
