Pundits on all major networks agree… Mitt Romney destroyed President Obama in tonight’s debate.
The first debate between President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Gov. Mitt Romney at 9 p.m. Oct. 3 in Denver is over and… Mitt Romney absolutely destroyed President Obama, according to all the mainstream media sources.
“Mitt Romney won the election tonight,” said former Clinton adviser, James Carville. “President Obama looked like a little boy next to Mitt Romney,” said Diane Sawyer. And in a surprising tweet, Bill Maher said, “I am donating one million dollars to the Romney campaign. He’s far better than I ever could have imagined.”
President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney squared off in the first head-to-head matchup of the campaign with a debate Wednesday night at the University of Denver in Colorado.
The debate focused on domestic issues, with particular attention devoted to the economy. Mitt Romney repeatedly accused President Obama of being a socialist and finally, the thin-skinned Obama finally admitted, “I’m not a Socialist, I’m a Communist.”
In the segment on the “role of government” President Obama told America that he believed that the government should control all businesses in America and that everybody needs to share their income and pay a minimum of 75% in taxes.
Jim Lehrer did a good job moderating the debate, although he made a gaffe when he told the national audience, “I just want everyone in America to know that I will be voting for President Obama.”
Toward the end of the debate, President Obama could not defend his economic record any longer and turned to Mitt Romney and said, “I’m sorry. I’ve left you a mess.”
Polls conducted by MSNBC showed that President Obama won the debate with a 95% favorable rating, while ALL the other media in the country had Mitt Romney winning with a 68% favorable rating.
In an unrelated story, President Obama has authorized, by Executive Order, “double-voting” in Florida, Ohio and Virginia. “Residents of those states can vote twice,” White House spokesperson Jay Carney said.
