Final thought, off to bed soon: Romney won the first debate. He spoke much more concisely, stuck with buzzwords, and offered zero details... which is exactly what he needed to do to go toe-to-toe with Obama. Obama tripped himself up by trying to present details and refusing to go for "zingers," emotional appeal, or any of Romney's missteps.
This will probably close the gap in the polls back into the margin of error, IMO. Obama needs to channel a bit more 2008 in the next debates if he wants to shut Romney down... because as Varus 2.0 is pointing out, Romney is acting like Obama in 2008 and out-Obamaing Obama.
