I'll level with you all.

I'm going to call this debate for Romney.

Obama had the stronger positions, but he didn't show his teeth. In fact, Obama almost never shows his teeth, but that's a different rant. Romney scored more points, and even though he was full of shit as usual, Obama failed to expose how full of shit he is in a snappy way. Yes, I said snappy, because Obama is running for President of America, not President of some country where people are smart and weight the evidence.

I think the ploy was to maybe let him get something semi-concrete out in order to try and pin his jello-ass down until election day (maybe that would be part of why Obama poked at him repeatedly for details on these plans he keeps saying he has?). Let Romney make more gaffes ("your poor"?), let him make himself look like a ginormous ass (which he did, stomping on poor Lehrer that much), let him do some sort of concrete outlining and then hold him to it.

You could be right, and my impression could be heavily filtered through my exasperation at not having an actual Liberal to vote for. But I have to question Obama's strategy of always angling for a center that keeps creeping to the right. No matter what he does he will be painted as a rabid Communist by the opposition. An opposition who, I might add, has spent at least two years running a successful campaign of running hard and fast to the right, dragging Obama close behind them, while still getting away with calling him an extreme Leftist. Obama, for his part, seems blissfully unaware of this, and is apparently more than happy to keep chasing these assholes down Crazy Street.

So when I say Romney won the debate, what I really mean to say is Obama failed to kick Romney's ass and stand up for real progressivism, and instead spent most of his time stuttering out weak apologetics for his "not quite as batshit insane" policies.

So, let's pretend I'm just some random guy with no actual knowledge of the facts, who doesn't do any homework. You know, like 90% of Americans. All I got from this debate was "Yes you did"/"No I didn't," "Yes I did"/"No you didn't" bullshit. So, basically zero real information, just two jackasses pretending not to flirt with each other.

So the only thing I really have to go on is presentation, in that case. And here's the presentation I saw, in all honesty: Romney was smooth, on point, and persistent. Obama was timid, stuttering, and played defense the entire time. The few occasions where he went after Romney, he always used too many numbers and referred to "studies," which may or may not be accurate, since as Romney pointed out, you can find a study to back up any claim you want.

Now, since I really do know the facts, my decision isn't in question. But to someone who is just now starting to pay attention, it's pretty clear who won the debate.

I mean, Romney did talk a lot of shit last night.  And he got a lot of facts and numbers wrong. But just like Vex said, no one cares.  Everyone just took things at face values.  It's as if their attitudes were, "It must be true, it's a NUMBER!"

Just looked on twitter, liberals are shitting in their pants. They're learning for the first time that Obama is a) a technocrat, b) boring and passionless, c) a less dickish version of Romney. Not to not toot my horn, but I fucking called this in 2008. Toot! Toot!

Just for shits and grins, I watched MLK's "I Have a Dream" speech last night.

Turns out Obama is actually a shitty orator.

DENVER—Following last night’s nationally televised presidential debate, President Barack Obama’s 11-year-old daughter Sasha reportedly asked her father why he was “acting like such a goddamned pussy up there.” “Daddy, how come you were being such a little bitch?” asked the sixth-grader, who told the president she was “genuinely worried” that maybe somebody had “cut Daddy’s balls off” right before he took the stage. “What happened, Dad? Were you on your period or something? Maybe the next time you’re in front of the entire country for an hour and a half you should try not letting another man spank you on the ass like that.” Sources added that Obama’s youngest daughter then offered to help the president go “look for [his] dick, because apparently it’s gone missing.”

Yep. The last good orator in the White House was Mr. Clinton.

Nowhere near MLK, though. I don't think we've ever had one like that.

It's hard to tell directly, because most of the presidents were never video recorded.
