    he still need good thrid election debate to really stop romney mo

    will be hard debate on overseas and might allow romney to attack obama over israel and librya.

    still he put himself back in the game last night which was a relief at least.

    it still close election but romney got advantage in national polls and national swing state polls.

    obama to win must again hold that midwest firewall and win ohio and nevanda. without it he can not win

    what worries me though is cnn think romney better on ecnomey by 66 to 34 %. president t got to narrow that if he going to be able to win

    I gotta agree. Barry came out swinging. He edged Romney out this time round. Not by much though. It could almost be called a draw in my book. In fact I did call it a draw last night.

    Good show by Barry especially since the Town Hall forum isn't his cup of tea.

    I'm sure his handlers will be touting his great win but it was almost a draw IMO. Both made points at one time or another.

    Crowley sucked as the mod though. Jesus. One would think they could get a decent moderator. Perhaps they should give the liberals a pass and put an Indi or a Conservative in that spot. Won't hold my breath.

    Jesus she sucked.

    i think both camps be happy. obama back in game while romney did not suffer much damage which is always good for a front runner

    obama need to peform as well in next debate if he to keep this thing close.

    Obama may have stopped R's Momentum. If Obama even moves the Swing States in his direction, he wins.

    Most indications are that Romney won the debate. It wasn't as much of a slaughter as last time though.

    Yeah, my guess is that Obama knew he didn't have to hit a grand slam last night, just show up and stay focused.
