    When I talked with my less political friends this morning, the "Romney was strong, Obama weak" meme clearly has resonance.

    I started pointing out some of Romney's many lies and the responses were along the lines of "if that's so why didn't Obama say that?"

    I'm in deep blue Fort Lauderdale, so there's no risk of Romney winning my immediate area but I think Florida got significantly harder to win last night.  There's time to salvage things but if they persist in this strategy of refraining from attack no matter what then it's looking grim here.

      I'm sure Romney's plan to turn Medicare into Vouchercare (which President Obama did address in the debate) will play well in Florida.  OK, not really.

        you'd be right.  Unfortunately my state isn't located in that world.
