What went wrong is obvious! Mit Romney steamrolled the moderator grabbing the last word over and over again. Toward the end of the debate Obama decided to take a little longer to explain his position, but only after Romney barged in snatching the last word and filling time with a personal advertisement over and over again! Romney talked over the moderator over and over again! He even interrupted Obama! I believe Romney planned before the debate to disrupt the entire debate and consecutively grab the last word! In a debate last is the more powerful position. The person with the last word has the opportunity to rebut the previous position without a response. In snatching the last word during most of the debate, Romney showed no respect for the rules of debate or the American people! We deserved to see a fair and balanced debate with each candidate having a near equal number of last words. Romney has no respect for 47% of the people of America...why should he care about making sure we see a fair debate? In addition, I don't think the debate left Romney looking Presidential. His rude, brash, abrasive and bullying behavior made him appear to be the kind of person who, if elected, would steamroll us into a major war!

"But, apologist statements suggesting that debate is not Obama's best skill really do not help matters - that is a necessary skill for a president, period."

By never challenging Obama in his ever so rare press conferences, allowing him to filibuster (6 to 8 questions an hour?), then tossing him softballs and never asking the obvious follow-up questions, the MSM gave Obama the sense that all he has to do is say it once -- and the matter is settled.

However, in the real world, an answer that raises questions deserves more.

Ironically, 67 million households witnessed the results of the doting MSM trying to 'help' Obama for four years.

Sadly for Obama, Romney isn't the MSM.

Obama: Jim can we move on to the next question?

Øbama is incapable of an original thought without a teleprompter.

Wait--if it's flashed on the telepromter it's not original.

Øbama is just not capable of an original thought.

Obama finally gets in his witty replies to Romney - 48 hours late. Did the TWO teleprompters help a bit?

Speaking at an event in Fairfax, Virginia, a relaxed and confident President Barack Obama had plenty of witty retorts and quotable sound bites to aim at his challenger Mitt Romney.

The problem was that they came a day and a half after he had been demolished by Romney during the first presidential debate in Denver and were scripted and delivered with the aid of a pair of teleprompters flanking the stage.
