If you watched or listened to the first presidential debate you saw Romney win handily. Or you are so far in denial about Czar Obama's job performance that you can no longer distinguish hope and change fantasy from reality.
But there are two more and a long way to go until election day. Stay tuned.
A few quick thoughts about the debate:
Obama mailed it in (he can't be this bad, can he?). He looked and sounded disengaged, he lacked passion and at times was indifferent or flat out sad. It wasn't an easy task for Obama - defend the last four years and ask for four more.
The moderator was inept. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. Jim Lehrer, although he clearly lacked control over the debate, let the two guys talk.
