Mitt Romney made a forceful, aggressive argument in behalf of what the other night?  What did the undecided voter conclude from what he had to say?

1.  He has no tax, deficit, or jobs program that he is willing to stand behind.  Whether Romney was offering a reasonable alternative for what ails the economy was a main concern of undecideds and independents.  He demonstrated that he does not have anything besides rightwing platitudes.  

2.  He will kill Obamacare with relish, and his claim that he would replace it with something including prior medical conditions coverage was a lie that is now being exposed.  Obamacare is relatively popular with independents, and I doubt that people are going to trust Romney here.

3.  He is determined to privatize Medicare.

I do not see how any of this can be interpreted as a "victory" if you are going after independents and undecideds who are not rightwing to begin with.  This is why I think Obama won the debate on substance.

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.
