    I'd think someone as smart as you would understand game theory - from economics through Sun Tzu. A math savant like you should hold dear guys like Nash, Morgenstern and especially von Neumann. Odd. Really odd.

    You aren't listening then, Romney is stomping him on specifics, while Obama is trying to shift blame.

    Obama has been on defense for word one.

    I agree, Obama only needs to muddy it up to make the average voter not learn a thing.

    Where is Gary Johnson?
    Wasn't he supposed to stand between Mittens and Obamao and teach them a lesson - if he's so awesome?

    I'm annoyed with Romney constantly interrupting the host. I'm not seeing a clear cut "winner" yet.


    They both suck.

    "Obama is killing Romney." The stubborn dems I know will still be saying this as the debate goes on. Obama still interrupts too, not just Romney. 5 more seconds please

    It's not just fanboyism. I always fell like "my" guy has lost the debate. Since Reagan anyway. Romney is doing well period.

    I like Romney, but I have to vote for Obama or my free cash will end.

    I love it. He isn't letting Lehrer make this a one sided story.

    Regardless of specifics, there is no denying that Romney looks far more "Presidential" - and that means a LOT when it comes to swaying votes.

    Obama's body language throughout has been evasive, frustrated and he won't even maintain eye contact with Romney on most responses.

    Romney, on the other hand, is coming off as relaxed, confident and "in control".

    Shades of the first Reagan/Carter debate?

    Really good call on the body language thing. Obama's body language seems like a teenager's. I swear he's looking at his feet every now and then.

    ETA - and WTH with the eye/head-darting thing. Obama needs to drink a beer or two before the next debate.
