AND Joe Scarborough, you lost.

The flailing, the inconsistencies, and the flat out mistakes you made, as well as your entitled, whiny, CEO attitude, has (or will) stop your campaign's engine like sugar in the gas tank.

George Will called this the best debate he had ever seen, and he personally witnessed each and every one of them since Lincoln-Douglas when he was a cub reporter.

I agree (except for the lincoln-douglas bit). And best of all, the True Romney came out. Disdainful of Obama, smarmy and condescending to the little ladies in the audience, (I am surprised that he didn't compliment them on their hair - just the right length and shade), and incoherent all too often.

Obama quickly got into the skull of Romney last night, and the result was not pretty. While some pundi-trees concentrate on the leaves of Libya, I think that binders of women, taxes, and other issues will easily fall apart just as badly in a post debate autopsy.

In fact, Romney ddid so badly, that I would not be surprised if the Team Romney starts making demands for #3 changes, changes so aggressive and unexpected, that this last debate may not even take place. Road blocks, demands, and non-sensical statements will shortly follow.

If I were in Vegas, I might even be putting out odds on whether Debate #3 will even take place.

Poll

Will Romney allow #3 to take place?

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.
