In case you missed it, here is last night’s debate…

Obama was the clear winner last night…

Without being merely a violent attacker, Obama went after Romney by pointing out the misinformation he passed along in point after point. Obama did it by ultimately being Presidential. Romney screwed up by being non-Presidential (and insulting to America‘s President, a tasteless move.)

I think I agree with Bill Maher in summing up Obama’s performance:

“Obama was decent enough to not piss on the CORPSE”

Obama has completely recovered from the problems with the first debate. He made sure the 47% statement of Romney got into the discussion after Romney tried to tell us that he was supportive of and trying to help the 100%.

“Not true, Governor Romney… not true” was the statement Obama had an ease of coming back with. Did he do an active attack like “liar, liar“? No… he was respectful, something Romney is not capable of.

I’m really looking forward to the third debate.
