I did not think the President did very well tonight.

I will without a doubt vote for Obama again, I hate everything about the republican platform.

But, I didn't think Obama did well tonight. He seemed hesitate and unsure of what he was trying to say at times, not his usual smooth self.

Some of it maybe the fact the Romney has no real plan for anything, just generalities. He has said so many different things and flip flopped on so many issues he is hard to pin him down on a particular stance.

Obama says thinks like, I believe, or I thing, to much. Sometimes making him self sound unsure. He needs to be way more forceful and confident in his statements. Make his statement as facts, the only correct way to look at an issue, not a weak delivery of, I believe, or I think, but I FREAKING KNOW I"M RIGHT AND THE FACTS ARE THE FACTS.

1. I think he did fine. I think rMoney will be caught in his lies and flipflops.

rMoney sounded like he was on uppers.

There was a loser in this debate--the moderator. Other than that, the only "zinger" I heard is that rMoney is going to kill Big Bird. Wonder if he'll hire Dick Cheney to do it?

3. I think Romney was terrible.....

But then, I heard what was coming out of Romney's ass; a reversal of all of the policies that appear
at his website.

4. I hope you guys are right, I guess I'm just so worried, I can't see it.

I'm seriously at the point of tears worrying about it.

5. His policies are right, he just needs a presentation coach

rather than practicing on Kerry who is a by-the-rules debater, much more polite than Romney. Romney had to attack, but he didn't have to behave like the time rules don't apply to him. But neither do any other rules, so why should they?

6. I think obama was staying extremely calm because he knows he is going to win

He doesn't want to get into a shouting match with Romney if he doesn't have to. Maybe a little more energy for the next ones but overall I see nothing wrong with what he did. Obama is trying to win the war, not just the battle. Romney had more energy, in the way someone on meth has a lot of energy, but in the coming days, the democrats will call him on his 90 minutes of bullshit.

Maybe Obama should have a cup of coffee before the next debate, so he projects a bit more excitement, so that the "experts" out there don't focus on whether he was "too calm" but I think he will do just fine.

9. The President is actually in a good position

The media loves an angle. Since there's somewhat of a concession that the President was flat tonight, the major focus in the next debate will be to see if he can bounce back. When he does, that will be the talking point, over shadowing any of the content. Remember, there are two more rounds in this fight!
