It's Important To Understand Why Romney Won

Former Governor Romney "won" because of stylistic flourishes. He was evasive on his policies. He was mendacious about previous positions. For those who care about governance and responsibility in politics Mitt Romney lost.

Without having read the link and just having watched the debate replayed on Xfinity OnDemand, it's obvious that Romney won because of his command of the facts. If he was evasive or "mendacious", that must be weighed against Obama's evasiveness and mendacity. For those who care about governance and responsibility, Obama continues to prove he is unworthy to be president. The recent attack on our embassy demonstrates that again so very clearly.

Obama lost the first debate because he wasn't prepared. Why he wasn't prepared is not clear, but he didn't do the work necessary to be in top form on that stage.

The article you offer is just dumb and typical "liberals this" and "liberals that" diatribe.

From the article: "One reason leftists talk to, read and listen to only fellow leftists is that they are certain that there is no other way to think rationally, compassionately or morally. "

That's crap. I read and watch all kinds of sources and my left-leaning source without fail cite right-leaning sources.

And the teleprompter crapola. Really? Obama speaks ALL THE TIME without a teleprompter and is articulate and passionate. To my knowledge, he does not write bullet points on the palm of his hands like some people (who often cite the teleprompter crap). Romney uses a teleprompter all the time.

Obama is not "intellectually deep"? I suppose Romney is?

You have a low standard for "articulate" if you think Obummer can be so described in his extemporaneous remarks. Rather, he stumbles quite a bit, lots of "ums" and "uhs" and pauses that indicate he must think about just what he is going to say so that he can put it over on the listener. People of conviction can generally get by without such deliberation in their comments as they are unconcerned with how they look or sound as much as they are with the truth and facts (granted--as they perceive them) they put forth. Indeed, they are likely to stumble over words in their haste to get out that truth and any gaffes arise from that. Even Sarah Palin is better on her feet than Obama, and as Obama needs a script or teleprompter, it should not be a negative to find than another politician might scribble a few facts on her hand.

As to intellectually deep? I'm still waiting for evidence of that from the guy constantly advertised as being so. Romney, McCain nor George W. Bush has been so advertised. If one is trumpeted as the "smartest guy in the room", then I expect to be dazzled. I'm still waiting.

Your First Amendment right to free speech is a privilege and comes with a measure of responsibility. You have the right to exercise that responsibility here but we reserve the right to inform you when you've used that right irresponsibly.

We are benevolent dictators in this regard. Enjoy.
