Game On!

Liberal and conservative pundits agree: Romney wins... BIG!

Best Tweet goes to Mark Hemingway...
That wasn't a debate so much as Mitt Romney just took Obama for a cross country drive strapped to the roof of his car.
Somebody get a hose.

The nut jobs at MSNBC are having conniptions from Chris Matthews on down. Romney lied. Romney. Romney lied.

There's your headline, Rachel: Romney lied! Obama died!

UDATE: From Andrew Sullivan - one of the president's biggest fans...

Look: you know how much I love the guy, and you know how much of a high information viewer I am, and I can see the logic of some of Obama's meandering, weak, professorial arguments. But this was a disaster for the president for the key people he needs to reach, and his effete, wonkish lectures may have jolted a lot of independents into giving Romney a second look.
Obama looked tired, even bored; he kept looking down; he had no crisp statements of passion or argument; he wasn't there. He was entirely defensive, which may have been the strategy. But it was the wrong strategy. At the wrong moment.
The person with authority on that stage was Romney - offered it by one of the lamest moderators ever, and seized with relish. This was Romney the salesman. And my gut tells me he sold a few voters on a change tonight. It's beyond depressing. But it's true.

My favorite tweet came from Jonah Goldberg:

Know that scene at the end of Rocky where Apollo Creed says "There won't be any rematch." That's what Obama wants to say during handshake.

President Obama has a rotten record to run on. He has hardly delivered the promises he made. He had 2 years of solid D house and senate and proved that he couldn't get it done. Now, all he could do is stand up there and blame the congress. Nope, Romney succeeded with a 87% D house in Mass.

The Green energy thing has failed. Gas is 4 bucks a gallon, I will wear 2 sweaters this winter to save on heating my home. Solar ain't there, Wind has failed. He did not get a pipeline from Canada, he did not close Gitmo, Shovel ready jobs were not there, TRILLIONS were spent and nothing was returned. Would you buy stock in GM or would you buy a Volt? NO.

He has his vision, but it is not what the majority of people want. I am on record as saying Romney wins in landslide, and I said it back in June. I stand by that statement. I trust the citizens of the United States to be smarter than reelected an ineffectual and failure as a President.

Your comment is very offensive, Anonymous. When all you can do is inject race into the commentary is sad. It shows that you do not have any meaningful thoughts to advance. When in doubt, call the opponent a racist hoping he'll put his tail between his legs and slink away. That may have worked in the past but no longer, not in this era of our post-racial president.

Listen you jack wagon, anonymous troll, I didn't vote for the guy, but I can honestly say I had a HUGE sense of pride the day he won. I was proud that in 2008 the American people could elect a black president. I wished him success and waited. Now, almost 4 years later I am disappointed in the man, not because of his color, but at his ineffectiveness. He divided the nation as no other before.
I wish no evil on the man, he just wasn't up to the job. I'm not sure Romney is. But 4 years is plenty of time.

When you make statements like this:

"That wasn't a debate so much as Mitt Romney just took Obama for a cross country drive strapped to the roof of his car. Somebody get a hose."

This is racist! You are condoning what these people would like to do with a noose.

Actually, it's a reference to the repeated stories about Romney going on a family vacation 30 years ago with the family dog in a carrier strapped to the roof of their station wagon.

Lighten up, Clarence!

Why is it that you, Anonymous, need to consistently state: "This is racist!" And then include a reference to a noose? To be honest, Anonymous, I feel bad for you. I cannot imagine what it may be like to live in your world where the only responses you can offer are to bring racism into the discussion and to once again refer to a noose as if you think that will deter dissent. Maybe some strong meds combined with professional therapy will help you, Anonymous.
