Reviews are in – very important night for Mitt Romney who was energetic and aggressive against the president who was visibly irritated, on defense and explaining all night.
@ChuckTodd: Very important night for Mitt Romney. And he rose to the challenge.
@VanityFair: Has Obama ever been this off his game?
@davidgregory:Romney’s in command right now. Taking on the President directly added a spark.” #DenverDebate
@davidgregory:One hour in Romney is far more energetic and aggressive than the President.” #DenverDebate
@SuzyKhimm: Obama is stumbling, hesitant in describing the selling points of his signature achievement. Not good.
@TheFix: Good golly. Obama looks very annoyed/unhappy. #debates
@JoshMcElveen We have never seen @BarackObama on the defensive like this. Unprecedented. Wrong or right. @MittRomney is on the game he needed to be on.
@LukeRussert: Obama shooting himself by not getting personal on HCR. Clinton probably screaming at TV. He needs an “I feel your pain” moment.
Weekly Standard: Best Debate Performance By a GOP Presidential Candidate in More than Two Decades
@chuckplunkett Romney is far more on his game tonight. #debate #copolitics #denverdebate
@GregGutfeld: Obama is rolling down a mountain like Homer Simpson hitting every rock along the way.
@sullydish This is a rolling calamity for Obama. He’s boring, abstract, and less human-seeming than Romney!
@stephenfhayes: Is there anyone who doesn’t work for the Obama campaign or the DNC who thinks Barack Obama is winning this debate?
@JimHeath10TV As I tweeted before the debate “Obama’s #1 goal: Don’t look aggravated or irritated.” Like many incumbents before, he has failed that goal.
@Cam_Joseph: When you’re explaining, you’re losing. Obama’s been explaining all night.
@kirstenpowers10: I’ll be interested to see how media spins this debate as an Obama win.
@DaveWedge: Obama looks like Rex Ryan against Belichick. Perplexed. #prezdebate #whoyagot
@billmaher: i can’t believe i’m saying this, but Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter
@APBobLewis: President appears flat-footed, unprepared, perhaps a bit distracted. No haymaker either side, but Romney’s more aggressive, focused.
@tomfitzgerald Romney is puncturing the presidential bubble…
@LarrySabato Obama now has spoken 38 mins to Romney’s 33 mins–but Romney has gotten more from less.
@JoeStGeorge: ”Mr President, your entitled to your plane and your own house but not your own facts” thats a great line by Romney.
@billmaher: Obama’s not looking like he came for a job interview, Romney so far does
@Jheil: Obama tells Lehrer he’s “done a great job.” #liarliar
@DraperRobert: OK 5 min to go but prediction: Romney has closed the gap in 90 minutes
@HotlineReid: Obama: “I think this has been a terrific debate.” MOSTLY FALSE!
@ErinBurnett: Undecided dial test raw #s show: #Romney won the ‘big moments’ 7 comments scored over 70. #obama had 4.
