3. Unfortunately, too many average joe viewers saw a presidential challenger who seemed to know

more about the economy than the President. That's not MY opinion...but that's what I've seen posted on FB and some newspaper sites.

We all know rmoney was lying about everything...but unless there's some kind of pushback from the President..a lot of people don't know that mittens is spouting lies.

6. And no one will forget the "47%" video or the jobs Bain destroyed.

Did Ohio suddenly decide to and swing towards Willard because of this debate? Yeah, no. They know what he is and what he wanted to do to the auto industry. All the lies on stage at a debate won't change that.

13. Romney went in circles...

He was on all sides of all issues and came off as the bully he is.

18. Plus he made Romney change his tax plan to something new from what

Romney has been campaigning on.

And he reminded people that Romney's got no specifics. Still.

19. Bottom line-

First I wonder which points were agreed to be off limits?
But the bottom line is it will take a few days to see how the public will perceive the debate, As for me i think Willard showed how no class and pushy he is as he spouted his many lies, But there is hope by tomorrow fact checkers will have gone through it.Our job is to get those facts to go viral.

20. Right you are.

Most people have their minds made up. What Obama needed to be was who he is. Cool and funny. Truthful and sober. If he had gone after Bain or the tax returns, he would have looked small.

Obama knows that you only attack your opponent when the audience wants you to. The audience hasn't gotten to the point where they want to see Obama smash Romney direct attacks. They need Romney to yap at Obama's knees, and fake a smile, and tell half-truths a few more times. It's early.

21. Mitt to Jim Lehrer: "I like to fire people"

"I'm sorry Jim. I'm gonna stop the subsidy to PBS. I'm gonna stop other things," Romney said. "I like PBS, I like Big Bird, I actually like you too."
