118. Have you seen Obama's other debates? I've seen all of them. Obama is not a great debater.

His manner of speaking doesn't lend itself to quick, strong comebacks. He's a thinker, mulls things over, responds intelligently. That's not what a debate is.

Romney tells the $716 billion Medicare lie, the one Clinton made clear to everyone was a lie. I'd call him on it.

Romney runs down a long sad list of current economic woes. I would point to trickle-down economics and the GOP's record over the last decade and say "You built that."

That's what I'd do.

R's ready to pounce on every word Obama makes and each hit counts. Obama sounds repetitive while R sounds like he has a plan even though he doesn't. This is not going to go well for O imho, and I hope I'm wrong. It will be written all over MSNBC's faces post debate within the first few seconds... But R is on, and O did not bring his rally-ness to the debate.

...and it's worrying me. He IS rude, no doubt. But when he is talking about his policies he sounds forceful and convincing, especially for those who do not know the details and who do not realize that he has not supplied any of those details. Most people do not think that the 1% are trying to steal everything and set up a caste system in this country... they just don't get it.

OMG Romney just used the "you're not entitled to your own facts" line.

Mitt is talking fast, he is interrupting and aggressive. But he has to be that way because his sentences don't hold up to close scrutiny.

He talks like a CEO and expects his word to be law.

58. When Obama smiles, he looks genuinely happy.

When Romney smiles, I wonder how he managed to get out of his straitjacket.

But the federal government won't federal education money to the states but to individuals. Huh?

No, I'll answer that: because Romney's a fucking entitled asshole.

80. Making shit up...

Romney seems to be making up shit as he goes along, and since (in his view) no one is challenging him on each phony new stance, he just gets bolder and proclaims yet another new and crazy position… The fact checkers are going to be busy tonight.

I can't stand Romney. In the dictionary, under "pained look," you'll find a picture of Mitt Romney, among others...

It seems like R had more time and said more, but O had more time. O talked too slow and didn't land punches. Didn't "list" things... we'll see, but my eyes are on CO, OH, and FL.

89. Closing statement - Obama. The "approval" line on CNN by stupid undecideds doesn't go up much.

His statement is not direct or to the point. Wait...the approval line is going up a lot at the end there "I'll fight for you, if you vote for me."

96. Cosing statement - Romney. Cnn's "approval" line by stupid undecideds is barely noticeable...

close to what it is when Lehrer speaks.

It's getting even lower. "We'll get the cost of healthcare down." and he talks about how bad Obamacare is.

It's going up..."I will not cut military funds."

But the approval line doesn't go up as high as Obama's did, and his approval line doesn't stay up long.

108. No. Mitt morphed. But it's going to backfire on him. We have records of what he has been running on.

Obama was unable to refute Romney because Romney wasn't Romney during this debate.

Obama did have a down night. But like Chris Hayes just said, Mitt's night was good, but not good enough.

That and using his trademark restraint that has served him extremely well.
