The debate

I watched the debate tonight and agree with the MSNBC folks that Romney was a big winner. Chris Matthews was beside himself. Most of the MSNBC folks agreed that Romney won. I watched with a couple of items in mind.

I was certain that Obama’s handlers were worried about him seeming irritable and thin skinned. When he was irritated, ha gave this big insincere grin. Romney probably took the advice of someone who told him to look at Obama and smile slightly. He did not do a Gore and roll his eyes or sigh.

His answers were very good and he got Solyndra in and the Medicare rebuttal of the $716 billion deduction. That seemed to shut up Obama on Medicare.

He did a good job getting the deficit into the discussion.

No mention of Bain Capital.

Romney did very well in explaining the Massachusetts “Romneycare.”

Obama missed his TelePrompTer.

Great job, I think.

    It’s been interesting to see the outrage of the left on Obama’s performance. They are blaming the moderator who I think did a good job of asking them how their views differed then getting out of the way & letting the verbal sparring take place.

    Of course, it turned out to be more of a thumping then sparring.
