Even in my jaded
liberal eyes - Romney won the night. Oh, he still failed to provide specifics, but those zingers his campaign promised were definitely there and aimed well. Romney managed to scare me by implying that if Obama wins the election, I'll lose my Medicare Advantage. And he was convincing. Obama seemed to fail tonight at shooting back in a positive, firm manner, instead faltering over some words. I think he fell victim to everything predicted, but no one will remember the first one - but they will remember the last one - so here's hoping Obama is better prepared.

As for Biden vs. Ryan. I have a feeling I'll need to cover my eyes.

*nods in agreement*

But I suppose Obama can't 'win 'em all' - OTOH, he really needs to WIN. *G*

I Hope Next Time Is Better

I too think Romney won. As you said he was low on specifics, but he was very forceful and Presidential. I think part of the problem is that Romney actually changed some of his policies for the debate. All of a sudden there will be no tax cuts. I think President Obama did not take the chance to point out that either he was changing his policy or he was not telling the truth. I often wonder if President Obama is not sometimes too conscious or too hampered by the idea of coming off as 'the angry black man'. There just seems to be a lot of focus on being cordial and amenable and what was needed last night was firmness and solidity.

Re: I Hope Next Time Is Better

You nailed it. Let him be angry, for God's sake. There were several moments when he *should* have been, when he should have shot Romney down. Shot questions AT Romney. And the moderator was NO help at all. :(

I'm sad and scared.
