    Best thing about Romney: The placenta that got thrown away when he was born.

    As long as Americans look at this as some sort of horse race and not a job interview for the most important leadership position in the world, we will always fall back to the watching of the polls and who won which debate.
    Already I saw a story this morning on the "tightening of key states" as if that was unexpected. The dreaded media loves to cover these races as a sporting event because the vast majority of our media as as shallow and stupid as their watchers, unable to grasp the importances of this position.

    I agree, Americans need to really listen to the candidates and not the media as to who won and lost the debate. Focus on what the candidate says about the direction and future of the country. Based on that it will be an easy choice in November.

    I suspect that these debates are a waste of time.

    Those that will vote have long since made up their minds which man that they will vote for.

    Those that are still "undecided" today prolly won't even bother to vote.

    The thing is ... the expectations of Romney are so LOW that he's gonna get gold stars if he says his name right

    But given his past performances ... he''l likely screw that up too

    I think he easily exceeded expectations.

    Did you miss the part where the one candidate said he wanted to protect the liberties of all Americans?

    Makes my vote quite easy.

    Problem is debates don't win or lose elections for you this late in the game. Most Americans have their minds made up.

    No, the problem is that now Americans see what Obama is like when he is exposed as a fraud and off the teleprompter and outside of his media protected bubble. Romney owned him on every issue. He made his points clear and refuted every attempt from Obama to avoid the questions. The great thing about debates is that people can really see who the candidates are and not be lied to by 30 second TV ads.

    You are right, Americans have made up thier minds and I believe the silent majority will vote Romney. If there were any "leaners" I think Romney made a great case for the diresction of the country. Cant wait for the Ryan/Biden debate on Thursday or the other 2 presidential debates. The more Obama/Biden are exposed the more horrible they look for the countries future.

    Correction ---- Most American HAD their minds up. It should also be pointed out that MOST Americans only started paying attention to this election in a serious way as of last night's debate. What they found was not the bumbling gaffe-ridden Mitt Romney that has been portrayed by the left and the media for months now. They found an upbeat, energized, in control, and extremely knowledgeable and VERY Presidential Mitt Romney juxtaposed with a President who could barely look his challenger in he eye, stuttered and stammered, delivered no more specifics than Romney did, and got tripped up time and time again trying to defend a record that is somewhat problematic to defend. Obama has been reduced today to going out on the campaign trail and the best he's got is to make fun of Romney's "Big Bird" comment. Apparently he's unaware that many Americans are probably surprised that the allegedly "out of touch" Mitt Romney even knows who "Big Bird" is. Romney brilliantly drove this point home by looking the inept moderator Jim Lehrer right in the eye and said "If I am President, there will be no more subsidizing PBS". I halfway expected Donald Trump to enter stage right with "In other words, YOU'RE FIRED!"
