It would be incorrect to say Obama won tonight [View all]
It would be more correct to say that Obama *owned* Romney tonight.
It's now clear that the win was last week, that Obama broke Beldar at that time. I believe that the moment was at the "Please proceed, Governor" mark. That was when we first saw the fear in Romney's eyes, the realization that an uppercut was milliseconds from his head and his hands were stuck in his pockets. I've never seen Beldar look afraid like that.
My former Governor showed up tonight still looking afraid, looking all "please don't make it hurt again". This time the Mitt Flopper brought his "I'll do the same stuff that he'll do, just don't smack me down again" guise. While Obama was unable to get a claw deep into balled-up armadillo boy, there was still much violent batting around.
Hard to tell how this will end up in November, but it's clear that Romney's been roughed up good and has lost confidence.
