    ...but 14-hours too late to staunch the effect.

    Last night was a picture perfect example of why Team Romney doesn't care about fact-checkers. 58,000,000 got those live impressions last night without the President calling him on a single item. So that's the working meme.

    Now what pathetically infinitessimal % of those 58 million people are going to pay attention to "yet another attack ad" on the TeeVee where those lies are exposed?

    My opinion: The time to call "bullshit" was last night, in real time. Not after the fact and after the Etch-a-Sketch had drawn up the new image. Obama was unprepared, overconfident and playing "prevent defense". And he got his ass handed to him for it.

    The "Mittens mopped the floor with Obama" meme will play for the next week (at least) with the media, with the Romney campaign and with its surrogates, and I think we're going to seem lot more damage in the polls by week's end.
