I wasn’t really enthused about watching this debate — too much at stake, media waiting to pounce, etc., etc. But boy, I’m glad I did. If it had been a fight, they would have called it half way through.
I cannot remember a more lopsided debate. Not only did Romney win on points — even Obama’s friends in the MSM are conceding his victory, some quite harshly criticizing the President. Ed Schultz has been denouncing him on MSNBC(!), and on CNN, James Carville admitted that Romney looked like he was enjoying himself while Obama seemed dismissive and unhappy to be there — I think “peevish” is how I’ve described this attitude of the President’s. Even Andrew Sullivan can’t deny it. Ron Fournier described the President as looking “bitter.” Poor, poor Chris “We have our knives out” Matthews — that ole’ “tingle” feels a little more like gout tonight.
