    I felt the same way.

    I actually thought it was going to be closer. But Romney clearly won that debate. Obama looked ill prepared and defeated.

    Seriously, it feels a bit like the twilight zone with so many on the left not defending Obama as the winner.:lol:

    I watched every word of it, and I thought Romney was by far more prepared, more composed and more 'Presidential' than Obama.

    This was a 10-8 round for Romney.

    With 'Pugs' Biden up next, I think there's some momentum here that Romney-Ryan can grab onto.

    This race is far from over.

    Romney needed lots of Ex-Lax. He flopped, pflipped and lied thru the whole thing.

    Independent voters gave Obama the edge by I'd say 65 to 49% overall on CNN. There was a ticker for Colorado independent voters on the screen and Obama went to 100% I'd say about 6-8 times and Romney about 4-5. Romney went below the line about 4 times and Obama never did. Obama got higher marks consistently on healthcare and education, economy maybe a slight edge. Women consistently gave him higher marks than men, especially on education and healthcare. I'm on another forum with about 6K members but only 20 or so posting regularly, predominately republicans and of course, they thought Romney did super! *rolling eyes*

    If you weren't looking for details, I'd say Romney did pretty well.. But independent voters on the screen gave it to Obama by a pretty good margin.:eusa_clap:

    As far as theatrics, Romney was far ahead. He looked almost manic at times.

    But the lies. He may have a euphoria tonight, but tomorrow, the next day, the debates will be scrutinized and he will be asked about his positions tonight compared to his positions over the last 18 months. Mitt has the "flip flop" and "etch a sketch" labels for a reason.

    So feel good tonight. It won't last.
