Chill Out. That "Debate" Will Not Make Americans Fall in Love With Mitt Romney

President Obama showed dignity and grace last night, something required when you hold the highest office in the land.

President Obama did not make a single mistake.

President Obama was resolute when required without theatrics. He was what Americans like about him: No drama Obama.

President Obama did not let any of Mitt's newly "invented" positions slip by without a challenge.

And here's the bottom line, which is all that matters:

Seniors are not going to suddenly now trust Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan with their Medicare and Social Security because of a debate. Ain't gonna happen. They are on to him.

Women are not going to suddenly now trust Mitt Romney as their new "champion". They've long had this faker's game.

African-Americans are not going to suddenly become bedazzled by the phony, Romney. They have the best bull-shit radars in America.

Latinos are not suddenly going to rally to Mitt Romney who wants their family members to "self-deport" and is heartlessly against the Dream Act for Latino children and who has said that "Arizona's law is the model for America". No debate will erase that.

The millions who have been outsourced, downsized by slick, men of privilege in thousand dollar suits have not suddenly forgotten that the man on that stage last night flapping his hands is the same man who says he "I enjoy firing people" and looks just the person that cost them their jobs and their livelihoods.

The millions of those underwater on their homes will not be smitten by Mitt Romney's smooth talking. They painfully know it was Wall Street fat cats like Mitt Romney that caused the Great Recession. President Obama hung that all over Romney last night.

Our fellow Americans who are sick, those with pre-existing health conditions, disabled or with kids on their insurance plans will now not suddenly believe this guy who etch-a-sketched right before their eyes last night promising them he's a changed man.

LGBT Americans and their families are not suddenly going to be wowed by talking heads that Mitt Romney "won" a debate and then go out to vote for a man who opposes even civil unions for them, who opposed their serving openly with dignity in the Armed Forces, who opposed adding LGBT Americans to the federal hate crimes act. There's no new love this morning for Mitt Romney.

Working class men and women, be they red, yellow, black or white, mixed, straight, gay, old or young will not suddenly now see Mitt Romney as the answer to job creation in America. They know that men like him are not the solution, they are the problem.

Listen, Mitt Romney did not move any goddamned so-called needle with the electorate last night one bit. Romney looked just like the snake-oil salesman he is and he did what snake-oil salesmen do: They lie and they lie a lot. But he subliminally telegraphed a message about himself to country: he's not to be trusted.

The American People know President Obama and have watched his quiet, steady hand and his great heart for four years. And they know his demeanor and they trust him in the White House. They do.

Barack Obama won the debate in the quiet battle for TRUST in the hearts and minds. And he didn't win all of that trust in a 90-minute debate last night, he's won and earned that trust over the last four hard years of cleaning up the financial wreck and two wars created by Mitt Romney's party. Americans will not forget that. They know that President Obama is on their side.

President Obama did not need to lower himself and get nasty with the con-artist that stood next to him.

Stop the second-guessing. Hold your heads up high this morning. The American People are going to re-elect President Obama in November. Why? Because they trust him. That's why.

Stand with President Obama in your hearts, mind and with words. I do so with pride, respect, gratitude and love for this man.

President Barack Obama won the debate.

4. I agree wholeheartedly with your conclusions.....

there are too many of the President's supporters jumping all over him.....one debate is NOT going to change the landscape

I was disappointed in the President's performance but more disappointed in the moderator who let robme walk all over him......

9. Thanks, Kentuck. I can't take the hand-wringing anymore.

President Obama walked off that stage as President of the United States and the American People are going to make sure he stays just that for four more years.

I've never felt more sure than this morning. And you, Kentuck, are the real deal.

But I would not be surprised to see the President gain ground in the next round of polls.

11. Like you, I expect him to gain ground in the polls.

People have already made their minds up and the decision is setting like concrete.

ProSense has a new Gallup Poll, taken before the debate, that shows that continuing trend.

I see President Obama is now saying "the real Mitt Romney" didn't show up at the debate last night. He's saying what the American People know. Mitt's a fraud.

16. Maybe we will get some polls before the day is over?

Or by tomorrow? I seriously doubt that many folks are fooled by this snake oil salesman.

22. I'm already beginning to see some of the doom and gloom from this morning recede.

Thank you for standing shoulder to shoulder with President Obama.

Families can quarrel after elections, but we need to be united as never before weeks before the election. You are one of the best examples I know of, Kentuck. Solid. Like a rock when it matters.

8. This part.

"Women are not going to suddenly now trust Mitt Romney as their new "champion"."

True. I just had a not-so-political woman tell me that she thought Mittwitt was a jerk, aggressive and disrespectful. She's not voting for him based on this debate.

23. He hit every big issue.

He didn't need to argue with Mitt Romney.

When I wrote this post this morning, I knew the tide would turn our way.

Talking heads (even "liberal talking television heads") can't change the overall result of that debate last night.

One was a leader and the other was a just a say-anything, kiss-ass salesman.

24. Right back to you, too. President Obama is going to win.

The American People trust him.

Look at what has already transpired since last night. Cooler heads are prevailing. And the voters soak in what they saw. A President for all Americans and a kiss-ass, flip-flopping, etch-a-sketching phony.

Thanks, Lugnut for standing by our President at this critical time.

You can't reverse it overnight. The voters have a good idea of who rMoney is and what to expect from him by now.
