Leftie Andrew Sullivan live blogging:
I watched parts of the debate, and Romney looked as good as I've ever seen him. Articulate, informed, confident. Obama was pretty bad-- disengaged, rambling, almost bored. Admittedly the President had a tough challenge: how do you defend a record like his?
10.29 pm. How is Obama's closing statement so fucking sad, confused and lame? He choked. He lost. He may even have lost the election tonight.
10.31 pm. Look: you know how much I love the guy, and you know how much of a high information viewer I am, and I can see the logic of some of Obama's meandering, weak, professorial arguments. But this was a disaster for the president for the key people he needs to reach, and his effete, wonkish lectures may have jolted a lot of independents into giving Romney a second look.
Let's hope this convinces some of the (brain dead) undecideds to pull the lever for the guy for whom the presidency wouldn't be his first real job.
