Have to agree that Gov. Romney was the better debater. And as a result I hear that Cookie Monster has a new verse: C is for cutbacks. That's good enough for Mitt. C is for cutbacks. That's good enough for Mitt. C is for cutbacks. That's good enough for Mitt. Oh cutbacks cutbacks cutbacks start with C.

Let's just hope he follows through with what he's said in these debates.

Even Bill Maher said Romney was the winner. It was crazy. I had never seen so many frustrated liberals.

The difference in their capacity of leadership was striking.

Romney was in full control. He could get both Pres. Obama and moderator Lehrer to defer to him. When Romney was speaking, he determined when he was finished. He didn't let Lehrer control his time.

It was almost like he had convened a meeting of the board and at times, was saying, listen you two, I'm talking. Now be quiet until I'm done. What I have to say is important.

All Obama could do was ask Lehrer to change the topic.

If this was a job interview for president, Obama is lucky there are two more scheduled, because he wouldn't have gotten a call back for a second interview.
