The President's stop in Madison

has me feeling better about last night. Maybe the debate didn't end last night.

Mr. Obama spoke to around 30,000 supporters on Bascom Hill at the University of Wisconsin campus Thursday afternoon. Obama slammed his Republican challenger Mitt Romney following their debate Wednesday night in Denver.

"I met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney (last night)," says Obama. "The real Mitt Romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, and yet the fellow on the stage last night who looked like Mitt Romney said he didn't know anything about that."

President Obama urged students to vote early when early voting starts on October 22.

"There is something you have to do before (your Halloween celebration) Madison, you have to vote."

Enthusiasm was high among many to see the President. A huge line of students gathered, and some of them told TODAY'S TMJ4's Nick Montes that they wouldn't miss the historic moment.

3. It wasn't just the crowd

but the fact that he went after rMoney aggressively on his bogus debate points. Mitt left himself open for some effective counter-punching.

4. Right, and that will play over and over and over again.

The debate is over. The backlash will live on for a month.
