The Debate: First Impressions

Romney didn’t win, but he didn’t lose either. He actually did pretty well. He lied his ass off, as usual, but I think he figured — correctly — that Obama wouldn’t get in his face about it tonight.  Too risky.

Obama clearly won on substance, but that’s because Romney can’t really talk about his positions — they’re wildly unpopular. So he stuck to the bullshit. And the lies, of course. Lots and lots of lies. Probably more lies than have been told in any debate in history.

Obama seemed to get under Romney’s skin a few times. I think he may go for the jugular in the next debate.

Overall a decent night for Romney. Now I’ll listen to spinners.



  1. If you want a lying politician, enjoy this president, because he’ll be gone soon. Wonder if he teaches integrity to his kids?
