Romney has shifted from hawk to dove to hawk in front of our eyes. Magical.

6:26 PM PT: It's real-time Romnesia.

6:27 PM PT: This isn't a really a substantive thing, but it seems to me that Romney is fidgeting a lot more than the president.

6:28 PM PT: Romney cites Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinjead to make the case that our economy sucks because we have so much debt and therefore we can't afford to project strength, so we need to spend more money on defense.

6:30 PM PT: Romney has reached the "Fuck it, I can't hack this foreign policy shit, so I'm going to rag on Obama's economy" portion of the debate.

6:31 PM PT:
#debates  Romney goes back to economy.  Good move.  Good strategy.  Romney draws good contrast on military spending.  "unfortunate" w israel

6:31 PM PT: Obama says the magical words: "America is a stronger nation now than when I took office." It's true. And it's so important to hear the president say it. He needs to say it more often.

6:33 PM PT (Kaili Joy Gray): New thread here.

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.
