    But like I said, this reads like a draw to me. Nothing particularly interesting happened in the key first 45 minutes. Each side will declare victory but the needle won't move, which I suppose given Obama is ahead means a win for him.
    There was nothing in the second 45 minutes either. Boring...boring...boring....

    I am wondering why Obama held back. He could have leveled Romney on several issues especially if someone is so vague like Romney. He literally left the 700 million/billion/gazillion cut in Medicare. Maybe he went by the philosophy 'wait and see' and then go for the next debates.

    But if I hear one more time from one of these candidates "I talked to someone in xyz state".


    Walrus: Mathews is livid at Obama.
    Ed Schultz and Chris Mathews give the debate to Romney because of the timid approach by Obama.

    Clinton goes into the numbers: Pimp.
    Obama goes into the numbers: listless and didnt want to be there.

    CNN leaning pretty hard on the "Obama was listless, annoyed, didn't want to be there" analysis thus far.

    Looks like the war-mongering/big brother contest will be closer than we thought. On pins and needles

    Hilarious picture, JCane. I hope Oscar the Grouch has that trash can paid off.

    CNN.

    Praising Romney, stating he had facts and specifics while Obama was listless. To be fair, another commentator pointed out that Romney connected to voters by promising the world.

    Romney went really vague and I think it helped him a lot in this debate. The question is, will people vote for someone who only will say what his plan is not, and won't actually explain/give details of his plan.
