Romney didn't give obama the chance to energize his base. obama is having serious problems with his base and many probably thought foolishly "uh , duh , i wanna see a repeat of the last debate."What strategic choices did obama have. Absolutely none that were credible . He can't debate his record. He can't debate what he will do in the next 4 years cause he has no credibility ,so it doesn't matter what he says. What obama wanted , he did not get and this frustrated him. Romney took him out of his game.Romney had many strategic choices to make last night. He employed a 3 for 1 strategy in 90 minutes and it was effective. Last night it was Romney's vision that took hold . Romney was confident, presidential, knowledgeable, sharp , and the only adult on the table. Conservatives don't panic . It was a 90 minute debate. You could spend the entire day talking about Lybia. Do you think obama is going to roll over? obama wasted his time preparing for Romney's control of the debate.
Romney a clear winner? Surely you jest. Or, you are incapable of judging a debate. Romney and his sneer throughout the debate was despicable. He had no answers for anything. It was very apparent that foreign policy was way above his capabilities. Obama presented facts and a clear vision of what he would like for this Country. Romney presented no facts, just wishful thinking.
Sneer? Facts? I think you are thinking of the Ryan-Biden debate where Biden sneered and acted like a fool while Ryan schooled the old man with facts.Last night, Romney looked like the President waiving away a pesky mosquito.
Obama got more snipes in, mostly untrue as usual. Romney just looked like a President waiving away a pesky mosquito. Obama might have scored some points with his base, Romney scored more with independents.
Agreed. Romney won, if you discount all of his flip-flops and lies, and expect the American public to not recognize what a snake-oil salesman he really is. Obama called him on the carpet again and again. Romney can't keep his story straight! Is that the kind of president you guys really want?
