Well, despite letting Mitt get away with the same lies as before (doubled the deficit) and several new ones (regulations quadrupled)* (balanced Massachusetts budget), it'd take the most Foxified teabagger mind (there are plenty, of course) to think Romney looked good tonight. He got creamed. By the facts.
I have no idea if a second debate carries weight, or if Romney's recent rise was due entirely to the first one. But if this one has meaning, then Obama may well have turned things around. He was excellent. Except for a few moments, Romney was bad. I said the opposite the first time, so it's not as if my glasses are rosy-colored.
*Obama’s White House has approved fewer regulations than his predecessor George W. Bush at this same point in their tenures, and the estimated costs of those rules haven’t reached the annual peak set in fiscal 1992 under Bush’s father, according to government data reviewed by Bloomberg News.
