    ...mostly 'cause it wasn't a boxing match. If it had been a boxing match...well, it wasn't, it was a one in a series of debates.

    The online front page of the NYTimes today - leading story, Romney wins debate. Immediately below it - Fact-checking, with the content being overwhelmingly about Romney's "misleading statements".

    The "long game" is what's being played by Obama & team - they've been playing that long game since the '08 campaign.

    In that sense, maybe this debate wasn't even a full round in a 15 round bout. And Mittens ain't even the real opponent in Obama's long fight.

    Mittens is more like some deluded high-rollin' spectator who climbed into the ring between rounds, as a gag to impress his friends...

    Cheers. c...
