Romney Kills It! ~ Politico

'The challenger turned in a strong performance, while the president disappointed.'

Obama’s Big Whimper
by Michael Medved
"The 51-year-old hope-and-change wonder boy looked worn out, uncomfortable, and embarrassed to be there, at times wrinkling his face as if suffering severe gastric distress."

‘He May Have Lost the Election’
by Andrew Sullivan
"This was supposed to be a debate, not a wonkish lecture. And Romney’s well-crafted punches are going to sting Obama for a while."

Why Obama Lost
by David Frum - CNN Analyst
"Mitt Romney dominated and Barack Obama stumbled in Denver Wednesday night."

The Rockefeller Republican Wins Big
by Michael Tomasky - Newsweek
"There is no question that Mitt Romney won this debate, and won it big. He was crisp, and he struck a good balance of being on the offensive without being offensive. Obama was hardly even there half the time. He seemed as if he just wandered in off the street."

Why Obama Fell Flat
by Howard Kurtz
"The president made some good arguments but was undermined by his lack of passion. Howard Kurtz on how he let Romney win the night."

Polls: Romney Wins
by Matthew DeLuca
"Pundits trashed President Obama’s performance in last night’s debate—and instant polls show that voters agree."

Was That Obama’s Dud Double?
by Tunku Varadarajan

"Where was Obama tonight?!
Chris Matthews - MSNBC
He should watch, well not just Hardball, Rachel [Maddow], he should watch you, he should watch the Reverend Al [Sharpton], he should watch Lawrence [O'Donnell]. He would learn something about this debate,"

Obama did poorly in the debate
Ed Schultz - MSNBC
"I don't think he explained himself very well. I thought he was off his game. I was absolutely stunned tonight,"

NOTE: When Michael Tomasky, Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, etc. do not say anything positive about Obama in the debate with Romney, then you know that Obama's performance was beyond spinning and beyond sugarcoating.  In other words, it was bad, as in bad - not baaad!  LOL!
