The President looked kind of tired to me.  Romney looked like he had sad eyes a lot when he had to listen to Obama.  Both engaged in a pretty decent debate about some serious issues tonight.  That was a nice surprise.  Romney, who was hungry for a last chance, was debating his little heart out.  If this was a contest of energy and style, then Romney won by default, because Obama didn't have any.  As for whether or not Romney won any new voters tonight from this debate, time will tell.  

One thing of particular note tonight.  Romney has been playing to his base a lot but tonight it was pretty clear that he doesn't have a plan for anything because he really doesn't give a shit.  He's gonna govern with the majority in congress.  He's not a Sarah or a Newt.  He's a Bush.  I think that came across pretty clearly tonight.  Voters can decide whether they want another Bush in the white house or if they want Obama for 4 more years.  

I think the race will be a fight to the end.  Romney can fuck himself like nobody can, but he proved tonight that he's not gonna quit, so, we can't breath easy until we win on election night.  

I am pretty sure that the President walked off stage and ordered someone to get him so damn caffeine for the next 2 debates.  :)

Oh, and to the people wringing their hands.  Chill out.  Maybe less caffeine for you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
