    Which aren't moderated by fact checkers. We could change the political culture if we insist on the centrality of facts and fight against superficiality.

      weirdly nervous to begin with, and he interrupted the President a lot more than he interrupted Romney's lying blather.  

      It was as if Romney was on speed.  He seemed frenetic and  crazy.  Obama blew an excellent chance to hand him his head on a platter of truth.  But no.

        There were no whites to be seen in Mitt's eyes. He was squinting. He reminded me of someone speeding or flying on coke. He was speaking a mile a minute, hardly pausing to breathe, and interrupting Obama and Lehrer throughout.  Maybe there should be mandatory drug-testing for these debates
        I also suspect a rope-a-dope strategy. Obama let Romney talk and talk, letting most lies unchallenged, which only encouraged him to tell more and bigger lies. The commercials are already drilling Mitt for his new moderate views/lies.
        Mitt acted like he'd never heard of the tax breaks for moving jobs overseas. Obama should have nailed him on that lie but he is and will continue to do so
