    The lesson of the debate is the complete disrespect and lack of regard Willard had for the moderator, who he said he liked.

    Just substitute the American people, 47% of whom he does not even like, for the moderator and you will get a taste of how the American people will be treated and listened to if Willard is elected. No matter how much the moderator tried to assert himself, Willard ignored him and ran roughshod over him time after time after time.

    Only one problem with your analysis, Ed...Barack Obama spoke for a full three minutes more than Mitt Romney last night, droning on about topics to the point where Romney had to interject to get a rebuttal in. If he HADN'T then the disparity would have been even more pronounced.

    Romney simply stood his ground against someone who was doing his best to monopolize the time available.

    The complete lack of respect for the moderator visible only to democrats.

    What democrats really wanted was for Lehrer to step in and tell Romney "Stop being mean to obama, you're making him look bad".

    The real "lesson" of this debate is that for the first time Barack Obama had to stand on the same stage as Romney to defend his record and he didn't do well. The President looked annoyed that someone was questioning him and kept retreating to the same talking points he's been using on the stump for the past year even though Romney was talking about other things. Romney on the other hand looked happy to be there having that discussion. He simply called the President on his failings and Obama really didn't have a come back for that.
