Romney strategically gained the upper hand by refusing to allow Lehrer to stifle his responses, a tactic all the uber-liberal moderators try to impose when their pet candidate's doing poorly. I look for the moderators of the next two debates to double down on their attempts to stifle Romney, given the mainstream media's massive collective psychological investment in Barack Obama.
. That is all.

It was pretty boring, actually. Two thirds of them did say they felt Romney clearly won, however.

We'll I'm a libertarian who's voting libertarian so my vote*lb isn't being taken from Romney since it was never on the single beam balance. You could say it rests where it always has, in the trash can.

So that's why the .5% candidate was excluded...not because he is polling at .5%...

Yeah that's how the commission keeps other parties out of the debate.

You are given a choice. You can vote for govt to control your money, or for govt to control your morals. Why is that such a hard choice?

F'ing A ...Home run for Romney. More battles to come but a strong showing tonioght.

Did anyone else notice at the the conclusion of the debate how Romney returned to the podiun to grab his notes ...and had his son stash them away? He's learned from his 47% video mistake not to leave anything behind for the bottom feeders. Again ...very Presidential to learn from experience.

On a funny side note ...the local news interviewed some students after the debate. One girl expressed her sincere anger towards Romeny for his consistent success at making the Prez look stupid. LOL ...give 'em books, but you can't make them learn.

One has to admire Obama for knowingly debating someone who will thrash him every time. He had to know it, too.

Sure. Your plan is to vote for a guy who has as much chance to win as Charles Manson.
