Please review video of Mitt Romney's closing statement and notice how vociferously he is blinking.  Nonstop.  The whole time.

Inner monologue must have been intense to cause that, but seems like a Poker tell.  Lies lies lies yeah.  He doesn't believe what he's saying when it comes out of his mouth, and it's a dead give away.

I'm sorry, everyone who keeps saying he came off as the winner might be measuring how much he got away without having his etch-a-sketch moments questioned when he flip flopped on several big issues such as health care and taxes.

Romney lost tonight. Maybe not from a debate points perspective, but his shifty, smirky presentation only reinforced the negative perceptions people already have of him.  Not gonna win.

Although his blinky McBlinkerson routine of Romney was not my highlight of the night. That was Jim Lehrer rolling his eyes at Romney when he Romney kept interrupting him like the snot nosed rich kid who is always going to say what he wants to say, and the teacher feels like he had to let them have their say because his parents are rich donors to the school.  Schoolyard bully again.

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.
