Careful out there.

Good show for Mitt, though. Very encouraging!

lets relax a bit people...this was the first debate and we’ve got a month left....can’t get to low over bogus poll numbers or to high over one performance...very promising but not the end all...

fortunately Paul Ryan should carry the momentum next week....continue to play like we are 10pts down...

It's funny and revealing about the "news" media on how they are now spinning that what we saw was a "new" and "different" Mitt Romney. No it's not! It's the same Romney that's been on the campaign trail for months. OK, he had a slightly different approach, but I'm guessing he was prepared to be attacked not only by Zero, but by the obviously left-wing hack of a moderator.

It's just the "news" media's spin because they know they couldn't filter Romney through their Republicans-are-bad filter last night for all the debate viewers. What people saw last night was the real honest-to-gosh Mitt Romney, and it scares the living daylights out of the "news" media.

I think a factor overlooked by everyone as to why Obama did so poorly and looked so ill at ease, and why Romney did so well and looked so confident, is because their respective internal polls are showing that Romney is going to win the election and Obama is going to lose.

Thus, Romney could look and act Presidential because he expects to be President, and Obama wanted to be anywhere else than where he was because he doesn’t expect to be President much longer. Obama simply didn’t have the gumption to go down fighting and detested the additional humiliation that was being heaped on him during a futile effort from which he had no escape and during which he had to control his natural petulance and nasty temper. Romney could simply begin acting as President.

My prediction is that the polls will shift dramatically towards R & R after next Thursday’s VP debate where Joe Biden attempts to bring sexy back to the democratic party.

Last night’s debate certainly put Romney on the road to victory. And they haven’t even discussed foreign policy yet!

As a community agitator (he has never been much of an organizer), Obama can read teleprompted attacks against men of straw. He can be “eye candy” on The View, take puff questions from Glamour magazine, and play black preacher to a friendly audience. He can be arrogant and dismissive to those he thinks are beneath his genius. He lets his campaign dogs lie and attack on his behalf, post his fake credentials for him, etc.

But all that is a lot different from facing a determined, intelligent person and duking it out verbally. Obama seems to lack the confidence to look a foe in the eye (so he looks down, and has literally bowed down to foreign leaders). Someone who fails this badly in a mere debate surely can’t cut it when the chips are really down.

Still time for Romney and/or the GOP-E to screw up. If Romney is elected POTUS watch for the move to the center-left to please the MSM and the Democrats.

The game is far from over, but it has been my experience that most people watch one or two debates. Romney did very well with voters last night.

I teach in a middle school, and the one word they used in describing Romney last night was "presidential".
