I watched the debate and I believe Mitt Romney just clinched the election. He didn't just outshine President Obama, he decimated him. IF it had been a little league game, they would have called this one in the first half-hour.
Yes, it was that bad for Obama.
Romney came armed with all the facts, knowledge and experience of his career in business and as governor of Massachusetts and countered every boilerplate attack the President tried with facts and reason and he refused to allow Obama to paint Romney with the usual half-truths and distortions by countering each with the truth.
I just heard Pat Buchannan say, "If this was a fifteen round fight, Romney won every round." I agree. The President looked down and not at Mr. Romney while Romney was speaking, whereas Romney looked directly at the President.
On optics alone, Romney won this debate. He looked up, enthusiastic, and up beat. By contrast Obama looked uncomfortable, unhappy, and out of his depths.
I may discuss it more tomorrow, but I hardly think the Obama camp can be happy with his performance . . . Oh, they'll try to put on a good face, but the truth is, Obama was outclassed, out argued, and flat out beaten . . .on every topic and every question.
This is a happy night for Republicans and a great night for America. The sooner we get this marginally intelligent, unqualified, unaccomplished, dishonest Clown Prince Narcissist in Chief out of office, the better for all of us.
I believe I will go back to my original estimate tonight, Romney/Ryan by 10.
Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
