Bear in mind that Obama was President of the Harvard Law Review, and is generally considered a strong debater. He should do well in the town hall format. The story I take away from Wednesday night is that people would have been writing not just Romney’s bot the GOP’s obituaries had he stumbled. Instead, he is in a stronger position, but he needs to get better. If the next debate is a tie, the media will declare Obama “The NEW Comeback Kid,” the polls will shift back to “Obama slightly ahead,” and Romney will need a Hail Mary in the final debate.

Additionally, the way unemployment numbers are now compiled means that (do to seasonal hiring) the rate will again fall in October, and Obama will have a head of steam the week before election day.

Finally, even Rasmussen is effectively conceeding that Ohio is a toss-up, and that is really the only vote that counts in this election.

It was all smoke. He was awarded the presidency of the Harvard Law Review based upon melanin. He accomplished nothing there. His record as President stands by itself as an indictment against him. He has never before gone against an aggressive, skilled debater. He is the AZ Cardinals offensive line of debaters.

He is toast.

I'm starting to think the only reason they are saying it's close so we keep watching. Hussein screwed the pooch, but good. In front of some 70 Million viewers, no less. Does anyone believe the next debates will have 2/3's that many viewers?

Fortunately, Romney and Ryan are not pot smoking lazy a$$e$ like their opposition. I am sure that neither will be resting on their laurels. Regardless of manipulated unemployment figures; Obama still has no record to stand on all he has in these debates is negative attacks on Romney which were shown to be ineffective. It is very good for Obama that he didn't use the “47%” comment; I am sure Romney was hoping for that one and had an aggressive return planned that we would have caused Chris Mathews head to explode.

I don’t agree with your assessment of Obama’s advantage in the town hall format. Whenever he is forced to interact with a lowly commoner the man looks excruciatingly uncomfortable. He attempts to make small talk and ends up just sounding like a dork. Let’s face it, the guy is no Bill Clinton.

I disagree. Obama can only do well in that format if the hall has been stuffed with his supporters and he's been briefed in advance on the questions they will ask [a distinct possibility.]

The guy is now famous for his inability to answer questions off-the-cuff. Romney will shine in this format, but Obama will be declared the winner.

Remember OBOZO became the “president” of the Harvard Law review because there was a tie between 2 other candidates and to settle matters they made an affirmative action pick and gave the title to obama even though NOBODY voted for him. Recall that even Hildabeast wiped the floor with OBOZO.

Unopposed in that format, he might do very well. I believe that being in the presence of an obviously superior man will put a big damper on the town hall "debate" for Zero.
