Enjoyed reading the various posts on this thread tonite while I was watching the debate and helping my 14 yr old write a report on the debate for her history class.

Was already a Romney voter; loved how he handled the debate! Obama looked nervous, didn’t look at Romney, and wandered in his responses. Romney presented facts, had “fire” and was upbeat and positive. GO ROMNEY/RYAN!!! And God Bless America—and thanks Freerepublic!

Obama sounded like maa-maaa-maaa-maaa-maax headroom!

Interesting that the Romneys brought their kids and grandkids with them, and Sasha & Malia Obama are nowhere to be seen.

OBAMA FLED THE SET and left Romney to take a curtain call with his family.

AMAZING!!! Obama couldn’t get out of there fast enough!

Wow...this did not go well for the president.

Romney does appear confident, while Obama appears flustered.

Or as WaPo will say tomorrow:

Mitt looked arrogant, while Obama seemed deeply concerned about the plight of the people...

Romney. Kicked. Ass. He was on target, keep that old lib Lehrer in line about his right to respond, and was extremely articulate.

Can’t believe their next debate is in Obama phone territory in Long Island.

Ed Schultz and Tingles Matthews are criticizing obama’s performance and saying he lost. Tingles is almost screaming!

Al Sharpton, as to be expected, is accusing Romney’s comments as being racist.

I’m not sure that was a “knock-out punch”, but it was good enough that I’ll score it as a moderately convincing win for Romney, rather than just a narrow win.

Obama talking about math and numbers.....Wow, that’s interesting because Obama couldn’t count his balls and get the same number twice.

LOL.

I was just watching the debate, and Obama responded to Romney with two points by starting off with " 'A' is.....blah,blah,blah" .

My son and I were talking about how Obama's debate technique is switching subjects, and I said watch... for the next point, Obama will say "2" .... AND HE DID!!!!!!!!!!

Decided to Watch MSNBC.

This is great. They are all crying about Obama not being on his game and how he should have fought back against Romney and fought for more time from the moderator.

Chrissy Matthews said Romney pushed the moderator around and Obama had his head down, and how he let Romney get away with that crap. "We have our knives out here at MSNBC and Obama should too." "Obama should watch MSNBC for tips." <"http://www.zoklet.net/bbs/picture.php?albumid=37&pictureid=3669">

Incidentally, for what it’s worth, my wife (who politically is an independent aligned with the RINO-wing of the GOP) also scored it as a win for Romney (and we watched separately).

Here's the moment Romney b!tch-slapped 0bama for spending $90 Billion on failed 'green' projects after 0bama's complaining about oil companies getting $2.8 Billion subsidies. 0bama really took a hit here. ROMNEY TOLD OBAMA DIRECTLY TO HIS FACE, "YOU COULD'VE HIRED OVER 2 MILLION TEACHERS WITH THAT MONEY".. This was Romney's 'gotcha' moment of the entire debate:

Thank you God for answering our prayers in giving Mitt Romney the grace, sharpness, and strength to not only survive and WIN this debate, but to overcome Lehrer's feeble attempt to sabotage him!

It would have been kinder for Romney to walk up to Jim Lehrer and kick him in the teeth.

I assume you are being sarcastic.

The topic of the debate was domestic policy.

Or as WaPo will say tomorrow:

Mitt looked arrogant, while Obama seemed deeply concerned about the plight of the people...

In 1992, Dan Quayle creamed Al Gore in their debate. Nonetheless, the liberal media found a way to spin it into a Gore win.

Interesting how you can see who is truly the better candidate when they address America with NO MEDIA FILTER.

Obama is useless without pre-planned answers and pre-planned attack ads.

Obama just wants to be President. Romney might actually want to DO SOMETHING GOOD as President.

Obama looked like what he is .... a liar! Looking down, smirky grin...same diatribe we have heard for 4 years.

Mitt Romney did VERY WELL! He showed the contrast between himself and the lying Obama and he backed his comments with facts.

I am impressed...good job Romney!!

I disagree.

Romney was alpha dog psyching him out and it worked.

His body language was direct, eye to eye and up in his face.

Threw obeyme totally off his stride, big time.

He got dominance-humped on national TV.

I loved it.

“Pit Romney”

;D
