55. The so-called debate was just a demonstration of how low Mitt will go to win---


this is a man used to getting his way, at all costs. He came prepared to lie, switch positions, leapfrog around his own positions and, in short, do whatever he could to stay away from the truth. This was a peek into the mind of a man who will stop at NOTHING to get his own way, including denying his own ideas, principles and policies. If the American people really want another LIAR and CHEAT in the White House, Mitt is their man.

The President, on the other hand, came prepared to actually compare and contrast their respective positions on the issues. He was unable to engage in that kind of conversation because his opponent simply would not play fair.

I wish the President had been more forceful in his responses and had been more aggressive in calling out the more egregious lies and half-truths. But Mr. Obama is a much better man than Romney (and NO I will not call him Mr. because he is no gentleman.)

Compounding this problem, the news media fell into Romney's devious plan and practically eviscerated the President once the debacle ended. I didn't watch any network except MSNBC but read comments here on DU and Daily Kos and noted that the blood bath for the President was pretty much across the board.

I think in the cold light of day, once the fact checkers get finished (and it won't take them long) Romney will be found out and called to account for every word out of his mouth last night. Remember, now he has to go back out on the road again and CAMPAIGN. So what's he going to say the people in Ohio, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Florida and Virginia now? He has pretty much renounced every position he took for months of campaigning.

I think the real show has just begun. I can't wait for any interviews he gives and any speeches he makes. The ads from the Obama camp will write themselves.

Oh and the next debate ought to be MUCH WATCH TV since the President now knows how Romney plays. I don't think he will disappoint us. He will still be the same calm, cool and collected guy we all know and want to continue in the job, but Romney needs to be ready for a very different opponent.
