    Romney seemed light on numbers and details...per the usual for him, I guess.

    The next debate will tell us much. If Obama comes out lifeless like he did tonight - he could very well lose the election. If he gets a fire under his ass and comes out swinging and going for a knockout blow on every exchange - that will but him back on top of this thing.

    The real question is does Obama have that sort of passion in him? We will find out.

    I loved Romney's answers. He did better than any other debate prior to this one, and he came in with a full charge. The President looked like he was constipated.

    I just heard it on the radio. I didnt find much to like about either though Rommney at least mentioned the constitution and declaration of independence. I am very much like Eastwood in my politics. So that colors my opinion.

    Bill Maher tweeted that Obama looked like he needed a teleprompter. Andrew Sullivan was even more harsh:

    Romney won. And he likes Big Bird.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Nah, he hates Big Bird so bad he's gonna pull funding. Big Bird will starve and be digging into Oscar's garbage can for scraps before you know it.

    Romney by a nose.

    Personally, I'm looking VERY forward to the VP debates!
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.
