"There had to have been a coordinated decision to go with the talking point: Obama was terrible. He was tired, disengaged, unprepared. Shocking! But why would Obama's supporters coordinate to tell the story that way? What a weird thing to choose to put in our minds?
Here's why they did it. Romney was so much better than Obama. Romney was vigorous, vividly in command of the facts, principles of economics, free-market ideology. Like Obama, he had a strategy to appeal to moderates, and he jumped into the moderate ground and occupied it -- stunningly -- with modesty and charm. He radiated competence and readiness to work for us. There he stood, the brilliant candidate, who wants only to help us, knows how to help us, and deeply, passionately cares that we need help. Wow.
Don't let that be the story! Don't look at that! Look at pathetic woeful Obama. He was off his game. That's not good for Obama -- as his drop in the polls shows -- but it was better than the alternative: talking about how Romney dramatically topped the President -- the President, who came to the debate with all the gravitas of the presidency and all the knowledge and understanding that he has through working as the President these last 4 years."

#9 "Romney looked like the big winner and Obama looked like the Big Lebowski." Clever word play but I loved the Big Lebowski so I find this mildly offensive. Besides, the Big Sleep would have been a better title.
