  •  This was not a prizefight where one person is (5+ / 0-)

    expected to overwhelm and bully himself into being the winner - or at least it was not supposed to be.  That is what it became.  Rmoney "won" the end result of the event he turned it into.  He did not win a debate, because a debate is not what occurred, in my opinion.

      There was no opening statement by Romney or closing statement by President Obama.

      LEHRER: Excuse me. Excuse me. Just so everybody understands, we're way over our first 15 minutes.

      ROMNEY: It's fun, isn't it?

      Hey Ryan, where you goin' with that trans-vaginal probe in your hand

      On the other hand, if Romney failed to participate in a debate during an event that was supposed to be a debate, doesn't that kind of imply forfeiture?
