First, recent polls showing him losing were on the verge of becoming self-fulfilling prophesies by discouraging his supporters and inspiriting Obama's. Romney, unleashing his inner wonk about economic matters, probably stabilized public opinion and prevented a rush to judgment as early voting accelerates.
Second, Romney needed to be seen tutoring Obama on such elementary distinctions as that between reducing tax rates (while simultaneously reducing, by means-testing, the value of deductions) and reducing revenues, revenues being a function of economic growth, which the rate reductions could stimulate.
Third, Romney needed to rivet the attention of the electorate, in which self-identified conservatives outnumber self-identified liberals 2 to 1, on this choice:
America can be the society it was when it had a spring in its step, a society in which markets -- the voluntary collaboration of creative individuals -- allocate opportunity. Or America can remain today's depressed and anxious society of unprecedented stagnation in the fourth year of a faux recovery -- a bleak society in which government incompetently allocates resources in pursuit of its perishable certitudes and on behalf of the politically connected.Late in the debate, when Romney for a third time referred to Obamacare's creation of "an unelected board, appointed board, who are going to decide what kind of [medical] treatment you ought to have," Obama said, "No, it isn't."

Stopped Clock ping. G’night all!
People are unemployed all over the U.S.A. . The media however creates an alternate false reality where everything is fine.
Romney did great in the debate. Romney destroyed the marxist POS Obama. First time we see the real Romney and the Real Obama and some of the real situation in the U.S..
I would have told Obama, Apologize now to the American people for ruining the American dream, Destroying the greatest country in the world, with 6 trillion in debt , lowest workforce participation in history and with your socialist policies that you are forcing on the American people which the media hides. Apologize and resign or tell us how 6 trillion that you added in debt to U.S. will not destroy this country, 6 trillion in debt that you gave to your campaign donors like Solyndra, etc. Resign now for your going around Congress, abusing power when decreeing Amnesty for illegals , a million of them to take more jobs away from Americans. I call on Congress now to impeach Obama for abusing power with these zcars, with Solyndra, with passing the Dream act by himself without Congress, fas and furious Hope Romney hits this POS Obama with that
Romney destroyed that pos Obama in the first debate :If it were a football game it would have been Romney 76 Obama 0
George comes off with one of the best one-liners I’ve heard for a while: Obama uses a teleprompter to order lunch. I did have a good laugh at that one.
It’s $4.17 for 87 here in Reno tonight at 7-11.
