I typically don't post in this forum but I saw the thread topic on the main page... My wife and I watched the majority of the debate last night. Wow! For the first time we feel energized about Mitt Romney.

I thought the President looked fatigued and his responses were often meandering and lacked focus. In contrast, Mitt seemed very alert and his responses were decidedly more focused and stayed on point. I thought the "role of government" question really hurt the President...especially when he managed to include a Bin Laden reference...that was a reach. Big points for Mitt for immediately referencing the Constitution.

Much like a quarterback after a football game, the POTUS gets too much credit and too much blame for successes and failures in the economy...there is so much more to it than that. What the POTUS can provide is strong leadership in bridging political parties and pooling ideas. I thought Mitt did an excellent job of relating his experience as Governor of a state that is largely democratic. Unfortunately the President's record of partisanship speaks for itself.

My opinion only, but I believe Mitt Romney really improved his chances last night.

Now for the most ludicrous defense so far of Obama's debate performance.... From none other than Al Gore.

He blames the altitude in Denver for Obama's pathetic performance! I am not kidding.

Pretty hard to debate the issues when you all you know is what's scripted on your teleprompter.

Romney WON in my book!! And i hope that EVERYONE gets out and votes this year. I can't wait to pull the lever. I also proudly wear a Romney/Ryan bumper sticker. We have GOT to get our country back within the guidelines of the Constitution. Period. Even if a voter is otherwise liberal, PLEASE...YOU LIVE HERE TOO!!! Our country will not endure 4 more years of Barack Hussein Obama.

Let's put on our thinking caps.

COULD Obama really have been THAT bad?
Or COULD this be a political strategy of the Obama camp?
After all, there really is no defense of Obama's failed policies and his failure to keep his word on some quite simple 2008 campaign promises, i.e. "transparency", "laser focus", "work with both sides of aisle", doubling instead of "halving" the debt, etc. When a sitting President has already publically stated that he doesn't deserve a 2nd term should he fail (and he has), then what becomes his re-election strategy?

The Obama camp has already previously established low expectations in the public regarding THIS first debate. But there's still two more to go before the election, and the last one may matter most.

Imagine how sensational it will be SHOULD Obama greatly exceed the now lowered expectations for the 2nd and 3rd debates??

I find it hard to believe that Obama is in reality the babbling idiot he appeared in this first debate. He now has more people "feeling sorry" for him. Perhaps he's switched from playing the "Race Card" to playing the "Sympathy Card".

Let's not forget the old saying of "Misery Loves Company", and there are a lot of people who are basically just "unhappy" no matter who's the President, no matter what. This could be Obama's play on emotions to garner votes, after all, and coupled with a resurgence of Obama's charisma in the 2nd debate . . . . . . many people vote totally on "likeability" and their emotions towards the candidate (no matter what the facts, without farther thought or logical).

On the other hand, many undecideds who watched this debate have now decided they "like" Mitt Romney, and I continue to believe this trend of Mitt gaining popularity will grow, and Romney will win in a "landslide". Just saying Obama cannot run on his record, therefore, his exceptionally poor performance in the 1st debate may have been a purposeful way of playing the "Sympathy Card".

Home Run. It couldn't have been much better, Obama's demeanor looked like a whooped puppy

I watched the debate and was pleased at Romney's answers for the most part. Obama has had his chance over teh last 3 years. The biggest laugh came from when Obama said he gave a tax cut for the middle class of $3600.00 annually so they could buy a new car..please tell me where you can buy a new car for $3600.00. I feel Romney won the debate hands down.
