Posted on 10/04/2012 4:22:31 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Mitt Romney on Wednesday night turned in the finest debate performance of any candidate of either party in the 52 years since Richard Nixon faced John F. Kennedy, with the possible exception of Ronald Reagans demolition of Jimmy Carter in 1980.
But where Reagan won with style and quips There you go again and his closing line, Are you better off now than you were four years ago? Romney crushed Obama on both substance and style.
Mitt was like a contender so keyed up by his title shot that, between rounds, he could not sit on his stool, but stood in his corner to rush out and re-engage the champ the instant the bell sounded for the next round.
Obama was mauled, with facts, figures, anecdotes, arguments, jokes, quips. A smiling Romney was on offense all night. And the presidents performance seems inexplicable.
With the split screen showing his response to Romneys swarm attacks, he appeared diffident, sullen, pouting, flustered, petulant.
Obama made no serious blunder. Yet, on the split screen, as Romney lectured him with a stern smile, Obama seemed a chastened schoolboy, head down, being instructed by a professor that if he did not get his grades up he would not be back next semester.
The verdict on the Denver encounter that Romney turned in the performance of his life and one of the most impressive in the history of presidential debates, and that the president underperformed, was outclassed and lost badly was virtually unanimous.

You don't say these things so naturally if you don't believe them.
Yet many here say there is no difference between Marxist POS Obama and Romney. The media and some freepers here endlessly savaged Romney. the guy they portrayed is not the guy I saw in that debate. You don't say these things so naturally if you don't believe them.
I wouldn’t go that far. After all, he couldn’t have done it without Obama’s help.
You guys might want to see this. Obama’s final, secret trump card? Perhaps...
I don’t know about that, however Romney talked to obama as the child he is.......and obama nearly exploded because of it.
But, hey obama was one fire today when he had his teleprompter.
What Romney says and what Romney does...
I totally agree, and said so to my significant other last night...I said, “That was, in my memory, the best debate performance I think I’ve ever seen by a Republican candidate. Ronald Reagan 1980-like.” (1980 was the first debate I watched.)
If a debate turns to social issues, Romney may find himself in trouble. In a debate about social issues, Obama can run as far left as he likes and it won’t make a bit of difference to his supporters. At the same time, Romney will struggle with those issues.
You know what really struck me about Romney last nite?
He was sincere. He wasn’t lying, and it was obvious.
I may not agree with him 100%, and he may be more liberal than me, but I do appreciate his honesty and his sincerity.
I think that is why Obama and his zombies are out trying to call Mitt a liar today.
The next debate will be “town hall” style. I fully expect some stupid youtube questions along with a few iterations of the fabled “pony-tail boy” in the audience reading their questions off of DNC text messages. The next one will be nonsensical and I expect then to give Obama the questions beforehand.
It might also show that Iran is scared of Romney becoming president.
this wouldn't be that kind of news.
I don't think Romney is going after Obama's supporters. (Egad...there just has to be a joke in that statement) Nothing will ever turn those useful idiots around. All Romney needs to do is keep showing everyone else that he is not Obama. Like he did last night.
