Romney had a very good night. Great. I do like this article. I hope the Romney optimists are right. But it was just one night and the election is still far from over.
It's not like Mitt was playing hardball tonight, more like tee ball. But Obama kept putting them on the tee for him!

Get this: Obama spoke FOUR minutes longer than Romney did tonight! Didn't feel that way, did it? That sorta says it all.

Obama was convinced he was prepared for this debate the way he was convinced he was prepared to be president.

RUSH: Obama Came Off Worse In His Debate With Romney Than His Debate With Clint Eastwood bit.ly/VAF0xB VID

Jeff Goldstein offers some drunken cynicism (update: actually drunken realism...and here is more morning cold water). He has a point. My expectations are not that high for Romney (he was not my first choice for Republican candidate), but he is far better than the alternative of Barack Obama being reelected. I consider Barack Obama that bad. And I think Romney could do some good for the economy and country. Romney needed to have a clear win tonight to shake things up. He did that. Obama will be far more dangerous in Debates 2 and 3. But remember, states are already voting and that will pick up considerably over the next week or so.
Still, never underestimate the lengths Team Obama will go to steal this election.
