Romney crushes Obama in presidential debate
The Kansas City Star
(UPDATE AT 10:30) Mitt Romney crushed Barack Obama in the first presidential debate Wednesday night.
And you know the Democrats are in trouble when the libs at MSNBC are saying the Republican presidential candidate did far better in getting his points across.
As for Democrats, they simply have to hope Obama’s poor performance does not widen the enthusiasm gap they have been worried about on Nov. 6.
On Wednesday night:
Romney was aggressive.
Obama was timid.
Romney brought up specifics.
Obama brought up meaningless personal stories.
Romney explained his Medicare and medical care plans clearly.
Obama stumbled over his answers all night long.
Democrats were practically yelling on Twitter and at their TV sets all night long for Obama to talk about Romney’s reckless disregard for the 47 percent of America — yet Obama never mentioned it.
Now, one good point for Obama:
The truth watch squads will be out in the next 24 to 48 hours, pointing out some of the factual holes in Romney’s answers on Wednesday night.
That will hurt Romney - if Obama is on his game in the next few weeks.
But for now, Romney wins on style - and that’s what counted with a lot of voters who were looking for some differences between the candidates on Wednesday night.
