    Mitt Romney talks a great game on the Middle Class, for which he called were victims.  He went so far to say he not against Community Colleges, yet in his first year in office as Governor, he went so far try to consolidate the Community Colleges into four year colleges under the guise of consolidation, which failed.

    I don't see this as a game changer by any means.  Romney was rather uptight to begin, and there were some Obama grimaces, but considering that 83% have made their decisions already WITHOUT this debate.  In fact in Nashua, NH, a bar up here, was teaming with people....watching the Red Sox.  So that leads to my 83% analogy.

    Why would anyone be watching the Red Sox anyhow? Oh,it's a bar.

    Romney was critical of Obama, but was very vague on his own plans. I honestly felt Obama did fine.  Romney moved toward the center.  Etch a Sketch in action.

    FACE FACTS!

    Romney wins!

    There is no debating the foreoing fact - 'Rama looked like the rhetorical fool - must be tough without the teleprompter and up against a legit smart guy (maybe private sector work experience, a record and a vote cast during your brief tenure as a political hack would have helped - who is this socialist moron anyways?!).

    He'll look worst defending his foreign affairs.

    I was amazingly impressed by Romney's  debate skills. He is obviously highly intelligent and spoke very convincingly,backing up his arguments and ideas with many factual examples. This iis one time that the media could not spin their negative, critical opinion of Romney. All summer long he has been unfairly portrayed on numerous occasions by the liberal media, while they have fawned over Obama and given him a pass on questionable actions. Thwy have all but handed him a second term, but after tonight the American public who watched this debate have seen for themselves that Romney can lead this country.

      Now can one possibly hope for the media to report the news, not slant it?

    Romney won because he was debating a community organizer who knows squat about business or running the business of a country.

    Romney looked comfortable because he knew what the hell he was talking about.

    Obama is a fraud.

    The current state of the US economy is a testiment to that.

    the president, (the one with the real job) seemed a bit tired tonight.

     

    Romney was energized, had weeks to prepare for this, and after all, he doesn't have a real job, now, does he?

     

     Did he say anything at all to sway me? absolutely not.

     

    I think the prez. got had on the image he presented, but the substance of what he was trying to say is still valid and strong.  Hes going to bounce back.

    My husband:  I didn't think there was a big game changer. But Romney came off better. I'm voting for Obama.

    My thought:  Romney was much better than he's been, but he still has a gotcha grimace head tilt, a sort of fake empathy, that he has to lose.  I thought Romney was too eager for TV, and that Obama's coolness was better for the home audience.  And, having heard Romney's questionable claims before, I was discounting them as he ladled them out.  Having been disappointed by one of Romney's major "decisions" in Massachusetts, where he betrayed his own values, I don't trust him.

    Another"Kool-Aid" drinker(s)" - c'mom just because you reside in Massachusetts does not require you to vote for an *ass (donkey, I mean) - put parties aside and simply vote for the betterment of the nation and put an end to the infliction of a coercive and controlling government (such as that from whence we came - and from what those old guys on our currency fought against).

    It changed my mind.  It made me realize that this is a contest between two delusional morons (note to libs, that is not a religious group) who have absolutely no grasp on reality.  Only hope now is to figure out what part of the country I want to be in when it actually breaks apart.

    It was fun while it lasted!

    Jim Lehrer was terrible. Romney won this debate, but failed again to explain how he is going to achieve what he discussed. Obama seemed nervous, a bit overconfident, and couldn't quite articulate what he was thinking. Not sure if tonight will change many voters minds, but Obama clearly needs to come out better prepared for the next debate. It will be interesting to see how the media spins this one.

    [/QUOTE]

    Several of us watched the debate together and we did not think after seeing it that Romney won -- Obama's points and plans had MUCH more substance than Romney's. Romney is such a shape-shifter -- he evaded saying anything concrete about what he will do. We were wishing that Obama challenge Romney's distortions and outright lies more vigorously-- Obama is way too polite, and this has been the general problem. He is reticent to put the blame firmly where it needs to be put -- on the Republicans and their unpatriotic and self-serviing obstructionism. He needs to be more of a fighter. Part of the problem is that he needs to tread carefully so as not to appear as an angry black man, but part of it is that at his core Obama is a very reasonable and respectful person.

    We think that Obama DID articulate what he was thinking well -- he is all about solving problems (and he clearly has practical solutions, something that Romney totally lacks), but he didn't deal well at all with the gladiator-combat aspects of the debate. 

    But the mainstream media is way off. Watching CNN afterwards was pure torture -- CNN's personnel are clearly biased in favor of conservatives -- many, even most, come off as Republican shills. I absolutely can't stand Wolf Blitzer. CNN has fallen soooo far.

    Romney was the least worst of the main Republican primary contenders this year, and unlike snarky ignoramuses like Palin and repulsively narcissistic egomaniacs like Gingrich and Trump, he actually has pleasant persona on the surface. 

    But how can you possibly believe anything Romney says? He will change his tune at the drop of a dime. There really is no telling what he would do if, God forbid, he is elected President. Many of us think he will start another war to get the economy moving.

    Romney is a very secretive guy -- about his finances, his political program, and, yes, his religious beliefs. Mormonism involves some really kooky core beliefs.

    He tells us to trust him, but Romney has lied to us before again and again. Remember how he said he was a resident of Massachusetts back when he was running for governor, but secretly claimed residency in another state on his tax returns? Then years later it comes out, and Romney tries to retroactively change his tax forms.

    We still don't know how much he has paid in taxes, and how many offshore accounts he has, and it is likely that we will never know.
