Moderator sucked, Romney amazingly enough won on style and delivery, even though all he delievered was quips, and more telling people what they want to hear, leaving the "how" to magic.

Mitt was well prepared, and the Prez seemed to never really engage.

Round 1... Mitt, on points only, as there were no significant blows delievered. Appears the Prez has some ring rust.

I got a chance to see some of the debate last night here in Brasil. Couldn't see all of it. Not surprised by the outcome. Romney is a really good debater. He showed that when he was running for Gov of Mass (and I voted for him then almost based on the debates - he was a different candidate by far). Those debates basically won him the election. Of course his opponent bombed when she offered to show her tattoo, but you can't pin that on Romney.

I still think Obama wins. Romney has simply said too many dumb things the past few weeks, but if a debate can change things, then Romney is dangerous.

Don't get a lot of news here; will there be a VP debate? I thought Biden was a damn good debater in the last election, too. I was really impressed by him on that night. I'd be interested in seeing how that goes. No clue if Ryan is any good.

there will be a veep debate, not sure when.

The VP debate is one week from today, October 11. The remaining two presidential debates are October 16th and October 22.

Edited to add: I don't think this one poor debate showing by Obama will really mean anything. I will be very disappointed, however, if he only manages two more "deer in the headlights" performances.
