Romney just won the Tea Party/Libertarian vote. EVERY damn program should be re-validated. Every damn one.
And the question must be, is this program so important that we need to borrow money from China AND burden the next THREE generations with the the IOU to keep a program alive.
This test does what we need: shrink government to its BAREST necessary size.
Update (9:40 Eastern): Romney one again when he made the statement he has been in business for many years, and no one gets a tax break moving jobs overseas. Obama does need an accountant! That was almost as good as the “I knew john Kennedy and you are no John Kennedy” debate zinger.
I also want to note the education system in this nation only began to fail when it began addicted to federal dollars.
Update (9:50): I am pleasantly surprised. Dr. Milquetoast (Romney) actually has a great passion when he is in policy wonk mode. The passion the man has never shown yet. Obama’s aloofness is hurting him big time (not to mention he is backing the albatross of ‘big government’). And the passion of Romney is in balancing government (read “reducing its power to make mistakes”), which has a huge edge in 2012.
Update (9:55): Oh Lord, Obama walked right into it. He basically said if you are oppose government intervention (a huge majority), then Romney is your man! Woohoo.
And what is with Lehrer? He keeps trying to save Obama from himself. Normally he has more self control.
BTW: there is a great internet discussion going on a Hot Air. Nearly 3,000 comments already! Ok, all 1o of our regular readers need to run over there and get into the debate!
Update: (10:15): Wow, Romney has Obama not only on his heels, he has Obama pissed. McCain NEVER rattled Obama like this. Smoking!
Final Update: Good lord, Romney wiped the floor with the President. The left can spin all they want, but that was a disastrous first debate if the Tea Party, Moderate, Libertarian CENTER is your target. Look for a serious (and irreversible) shift in the polls this week. The silent insurgent voter is going to be all of a sudden interested and engaged.
Final, Final Update: I did like the debate format – a lot!
Final, Final, Final (I mean it, I am going to bed) Update: CNN snap poll of registered voters who watched 67% Romney – 25% Obama winner. Wipe out Romney. CNN delayed their focus group to an hour after Fox to hide Obama debacle. Fox focus group shows huge shift to Romney.
What was a tied race now becomes a blow. The Incompetent-In-Chief implodes in next debate as pressure from a real challenger blows his cool. This election is over. Fox News focus group proves the undecideds all moved to Romney – Obama not going to get them back.
October Surprise: Libya. 6 days of incompetent cover up (blame the vide0) after weeks of warning and attacks means Obama cannot defend against next 9-11. Good Lord, they failed in LIBYA to see the warning signs!!!!
