16. In a three game series, just because you win the first game 20 - 2 and lose the other two

You don't with the series.

There's no aggregation of points here. All this is moving the goal posts. Had Romney been declared the loser of all three of the debates, people like Romney would just rearrange the standard for Romney doing a good job. He's doing it this morning and Joe Klein just called him on his bullshit.

There's a simple word for the treatment that Romney is getting from people like Joe, it's called "coddling".

Frankly, I don't see why Romney needs to get coddled on DU either. The man's an empty suit, there are NO excuses for this at all.

With as far as we have to go, I really doubt that Romney is going to survive all the way to election day. It's not that I'm saying that the polls are wrong, I'm merely saying that by election day, Romney's standing in the polls at this moment will be irrelevant. He's going to lose Ohio and the Prez is getting reelected.

The glossing over of Mitt Romney and his record by the media is positively delusional.
