It would be incorrect to say Obama won tonight

It would be more correct to say that Obama *owned* Romney tonight.

It's now clear that the win was last week, that Obama broke Beldar at that time. I believe that the moment was at the "Please proceed, Governor" mark. That was when we first saw the fear in Romney's eyes, the realization that an uppercut was milliseconds from his head and his hands were stuck in his pockets. I've never seen Beldar look afraid like that.

Bam.

My former Governor showed up tonight still looking afraid, looking all "please don't make it hurt again". This time the Mitt Flopper brought his "I'll do the same stuff that he'll do, just don't smack me down again" guise. While Obama was unable to get a claw deep into balled-up armadillo boy, there was still much violent batting around.

Owned.

Hard to tell how this will end up in November, but it's clear that Romney's been roughed up good and has lost confidence.

3. Romney looked pathetic; simpering, flushing, exposed as a bumbling neophyte

just wish, however, that Obama had been able to interrupt that monologue toward the end and rebut some of
romney's lies; schieffer was hopeless and let R babble on.

9. So true. Schieffer was wagging his finger--gimme a break. He should have interrupted

and told Romney to shut his yap.

6. I've always wondered what that term meant - Now I know - Obama definitely owned Romney - no doubt

7. Romney the Retreater in Chief

I think the best description of Romney's performance tonight would be that he demonstrated his skill at retreating from every position he held.

8. Romney's closing statement was stammers and repeats.

The President looked straight into the camera and made me proud!

And I will be voting--here in NC--tomorrow for President Barack Obama.
