It doesn't matter, this was the first debate. Americans have short attention spans. After the next debate, no one will care who looked more energized or agressive in the first debate.
Bottom line, Romney just admitted to a lot of positions he holds that will directly hurt the middle class. He also had to deny some of his own past positions and pretend like he never said those things.
Romney's 5 trillion tax cut, Romney desperately tried to get away from that, trying to deny that is his position. All independent studies show that this is true.
Let me simplify this for you. Romney just offered up on a platter a ton of fodder for the fact checkers and for future ads in this debate. There are still 5 weeks until the election, Romney has to live with the comments he just made, and the positions he just laid out for 5 weeks.
I truly believe that was Obama's strategy.
I hope so, Obama let Romney punch him in the face 30 times and then he didn't attempt to get Romney where
he could have.
