I haven’t really given my opinion about the debate the other night, mostly because I don’t really have one. I was disappointed in the moderating by Lehrer, who let Romney run roughshod over him a couple of times. Basically, Romney was on his A-game, looking the president in the eye, being forceful, yet polite (except to the moderator), and far more personable than his usual robotic, gaffe-prone campaign-trail self. Judging the winner stylistically, I would say Romney, but another criterion should be the truthfulness of the debater. Romney contradicted his own words and policies. Obama wasn’t very aggressive about calling Romney out on his inaccuracies, but he was factual, logical, respectful, and, well…presidential.
