He was bad, he didn't make them actually answer the questions


That's obviously not related in any way to his job as moderator. His entire job, in total, completely is to manage time so that one candidate doesn't take more advantage of the shared infomercial than the the other. He did fine at that.

Dig up Russert!

From an outsider. Romney is no longer a robot. He's a person. That's a MASSIVE improvement. He had to come across as a person you could talk to that understands your problems. He did a pretty good job at that. Still no details, but I don't know that that was his biggest weakness I think a bigger weakness was his disconnection with people, he connected really well last night and it'll change a lot of people's views about the guy.

Obama was bad. I was quite surprised at how poorly he did. He looked like a school kid that'd been dragged to the principle's office.
He got better towards the end of the debate once he got over the "Holy **** this is actually happening" face and started actually jabbing back, but it was too late for the majority of folks who glazed over half an hour before. I don't know that Romney came across as understanding problems seeing as he avoided specific answers about actual resolutions, but I do think that in he had a "Hey Shucks" Reagan-ness about him that plays well to middle America. I disagree with Smash that Obama will be the same in the next debate. It's social issues, and he's going to get the **** coached out of him before them. For all that he seems mild-mannered, he's not one to take a loss sitting down. It's the quiet ones that always hit back hardest.
