Response to liberal N proud (Original post)

39. It takes more than ninety minutes to get Romney

I went into this debate with low expectations. I assumed Obama would want to be cool and methodical and that Romney would lie and pretend to be anyone but Mitt Romney. If that happened, then Obama would win on a judges' decision. There wasn't going to be a knock-out.

Obama now knows at least a few things he didn't know before. One of which is that the left wing punditry, blogosphere, and netroots will panic and frag him if he doesn't give them an outlet for their debate fantasies. That, coupled with the fact that certain rhetorical dynamics now favor Obama, makes me think we are going to see a funner debate next time.
