According to the latest Gallup poll, Mitt Romney has leapt from a significant deficit to a 2-point lead in the wake of his widely lauded Presidential debate performance. He is simultaneously closing in on Obamas lead in several swing states.

These Marxist/Maoists may be the historical exception. They may leave only at gunpoint, or military escort : )
Very good article. Pretty darned astute analysis of the road from here on in the campaign, I believe.
He broke his oath to this nation. This entire nation knows it. But 47% could give a rats azz.
