I kind of wish Obama was more agressive, but I think his debate prep was overly passive as a strategy for avoiding gaffes and underwhelming for details.
Overall, very good debate for Romney. He should be able to use this to stop the bleeding in the polls and maybe begin a small comeback in the polls over the next week or two. He desperately needs to start getting away from the 44's and 45's in the poll averages and start hitting 46 or maybe 47 for a consistent basis. At the very least, the good performance will help him on the direct fundraising side, as he is behind in small money.
As I suggested here (with my clear view of the American road signs) this debate was always going to be a slice and dice for Romney. I have suggested that Obama has no narrative or a narrative of failure.
Obama is like Wiley Coyote...beep beep! Roadkill.
No ACME teleprompter this time.
The Obama arrogance of "why do I have to be here"? Don't they know I am the Anointed One?" . Shuffling his feet around... gazing down... like a deer waiting to be despatched by a lion.
Pitiful body language.
Even the faked up polls are turning The last one that gave Romney and Obama 47-47 had a massive tilt to the Dems by using 2008 to evaluate voting patterns in 2012 - after a massive 2010 midterm turnaround.
Sorry guys 2008/2012 comparisons = apples and pears.
Romney to win.
