Response to CoffeeCat (Original post)

38. I agree with you completely, CoffeeCat

that was my first impression, too--that Obama was knocked off his game by Wromney just taking a complete about-face from all of the policy he was prepared to debate him on. But, Wromney didn't really back away from what he's been saying, he just reframed it and lied shamelessly. The 20% across the board tax cut *IS* the 4 trillion dollar tax cut... the debt-nutrality of it by closing loop-holes is STILL IMPOSSIBLE, as Clinton pointed out. Obama DID point out Wromney's lies, and also got a good zinger in there about Wromney's policy being "nevermind"--I think that can potentially stick, especially with Wromney already having a reputation as a flip-flopper.

Our shock and disgust shouldn't be aimed at the President... Jim Lehrer completely lost control of the debate... and Romney took advantage by constantly getting in the last word, i.e., leaving the audience with the brain-bug of an unanswered lie. Fortunately, we still have ads and two more debates, so Wromney didn't REALLY get in the last word. His sense of success is false.

To everyone wringing their hands tonight: CALM THE FUCK DOWN.
