First the audience. The mostly republican audience last night was really rude. They booed and tried to drown out the journalists whenever they (the audience) thought the questions were to harsh for poor Myth.
Tonight, the audience was enthusuastic, but well-mannered and polite. I think they were confident that the president was more than capable to handle the very tought questions thrown at him.
Secondly, what a contrast between the candidates! President Obama was articulate, warm and clear. Romney.... well, I've heard him described as "Cantinflesco" often today. Cantiflas was a Mexican actor and comedian, famous for talking a storm without saying anything. He was a real icon, but believe me, if someone says you are "Cantinflesco" it is not a copliment. Big fail, Ronmey.
Finally, the commercial breaks were filled with Romney ads. I think that's pretty underhanded, but then again, I'm glad he wasted his money like that. Pathetic.
