I enjoyed reading this from someone who was able to go into this fresh. I read the feeds and even part of the transcript. Romney comes across as arrogant even in writing, LOL. He was pretty condescending to Lehrer and the Prez in the transcript. And some of the reactions I'm seeing in non-political forums mirror yours. I'm getting that a lot of young people are really up on politics and they see the BS clearly whereas people my age are remembering that Americans like all bluster and no substance. I don't know that this is the case so much anymore.
