    Re: Who Won?

    Romney talked to Obama almost the whole debate. Seemed almost as if he were deferring in a way.

    Obama did ramble, and too often, spoke as if he were an interviewee, not a debater in a very important contest.

    The debate itself was pretty bad, very boring, and I zoned out repeatedly.
    Do not write in this space!

    I am cornfused by the juxtaposition of your statements. Are there more than one of you?

    That said I think Romney outshone Obama in this one by a fairly wide margin. I expect the talk today in the media to be of the "does it really matter" flavor. Also we will likely see more "what Obama did wrong" than "What Romney did right" talk.

    Re: Who Won?

    I judged by style, content, & level of confidence. Romney took Obama apart on all three counts. I almost felt sorry for the president; almost, but not quite.

    Romney can get the upperhand by offering more specifics and continuing the challenge the President and go toe to toe with him.
    This must be the left wing talking point of the morning. As of yet I have seen zero links to Obama or any president being much more specific when they were running for president... or if they gave specifics, how those plans worked out, or failed. I'm guessing much like the 'fair share' talking point, there will never be any real data to support this new 'specifics' talking point, as it's an end in itself.

    Only a rubber stamp could say that Obama won that debate.

    I agree. Romney won, but it was a Pyrrhic victory.
