Obama got the questions in advance, most certainly.

Well just heard Mark Levin interview Rick Santorum and he said that Romney could do to Obama what Romney did to him, (Santorum), that is, go for the jugular.

That’s no fair. The Romney card is all made up jokes and the Obama card was all stuff he really says!

"OK, Romney, remember Obama has thin skin. Just show us you can get under it."

Mark Levin just got through interviewing Rick Santorum. Rick told about being in the Fox News makeup room once when Charles Krauthammer came through. He asked Charles, who is a shrink, if he thought Obama was a narcissist. Rick says Charles replied in his professorial tone, "No. He is a PATHOLOGICAL narcissist."

Santorum says he thinks one of the keys will be getting under Obama's skin.

Not a bit nervous, this is when the game gets fun. Romney is going to do just fine against the little smug racist.

Romney: “Mr. President, thanks for sharing that story, but let’s get back to your nonfictional record.”

I’m with you- normally I think these are FUN...not tonight. There’s too much at stake and so many possibilities ..one of which is Romney going too easy on O. I heard Steven Hayes on Lou Dobbs say that part of Mitt’s team wants him just to speak to the “undecided”..the ones who voted for O last time but might not now. It’s that kind of crap that makes my head spin.

I am going to FReep this- probably not going to watch..my BP has been going up lately.

Thanks. I didn’t hear that.

I can’t wait for Obama to have a complete break down on national TV and the debates are the natural platform for it.

If only Romney has the gravitas for that. It would be GREAT!

I am normally more nervous than the candidate I support, but tonite I believe there is every reason for optimism.

Romney is ready, every road in his life has led to this moment.

I believe we are going to see a visionary, sharp, and well-spoken Romney who will talk directly to the American people about the stakes of our future: more government or more freedom.

No. Don't feel sorry for him. He knows he's trying to replace a sitting, "historic" president and Mitt's in this to win it. He's ready. ;)

Roger that. If you got stuck on guard duty, on the perimeter, at midnight, in Injun territory, who would you rather have with you Romney or Obama? Mitt's gonna do just fine.
