    In 2007 - 2008, this debate reminded me of candidate Obama's rather tepid debate performances.  Hillary was very good at debates, yet, guess who is POTUS?  As a long time Obama supporter, I have never once thought of debates as his best talent.  He always has too many ums and goes professor rather than Ali.  So now folks are upset that President Obama is consistent.  Remember, we ladies are the biggest block of voters and the ladies liked the president tonight not the smug sharpshooter liar.  Also, men would rather see punches, ladies like information.  The president was targeting the right audience.  Romney did not do himself any good because the takeaways on his actual content will live in infamy - vouchers, less regulations, changing medicare, no time to tell about his plans - all spell disaster.

    And poor Scott Brown, taken down by friendly fire from Mitt - too funny.  So again, my take is AMUSED!
