What an enjoyable first debate between President Obama and Gov. Romney. Anyone seeing them for the first time would have assumed Romney was the informed incumbent and Obama was the incompetent challenger.
Throughout the debate, Obama looked confused and almost angry at the treatment he was receiving from Romney. Obama was made to stick to the facts and not his usual rhetoric about what a great opportunity we have with him as our leader.
Obama was very ill prepared for what he was doing. I did agree with him when he said before the debate that he was just an “OK debater.” He can be better prepared for the next debate, but cannot change the results of the last four years.
The irony evident in the first debate is that while given a free ride on all his many failures by the mainstream media, they may have helped Obama lose the election in November by never challenging him to explain anything. The sun was shining on America the morning after the debate.

So you must have been happy that your candidate lied about every position he had taken previously? If you are legitimately worried about spending how do you come to grips with Romney's math? Tax cuts for everyone, no cuts of any program (except public television), more military spending, and his mysterious economic plan ? C'mon we've had three decades of your ilk running with the idea that Democrats are big spenders and that Republicans are fiscal conservatives. Too bad the facts show that the biggest spending occurred under GW Bush (both terms) and Reagan's second term. (CBO data) So you are happy your candidate was more of a "liberal" than the President? I guess you really needed something to cheer about?
