An un-MITT-igated Victory

I was up late last night.

Some of you may be aware, there was a debate last night.

There is not much more for me to say than my clever title.

Okay, maybe not that clever.

Last night, the country got to see an unfiltered Mitt Romney and an unfiltered President Obama.

According to the snap polls, Romney is the clear winner. CNN’s poll stated 67% viewed Romney as the victor. A CBS poll of undecided voters gave Romney the win by a 2-1 margin.

As a long-standing Romney supporter, last night was vindicating. This was the man, who in 1994, push Ted Kennedy to take a second mortgage on his Virginia home to defeat him.

Yea, last night was fun. I even watched the replay.

I think Charles Hurt summed it up best:

Bewildered  and lost without his teleprompter, President Obama flailed all  around  the debate stage last night. He was stuttering, nervous and petulant. It  was like he had been called in front of the principal after goofing  around for  four years and blowing off all his homework.

Not  since Jimmy Carter faced Ronald  Reagan has the U.S. presidency been so  embarrassingly represented in  public. Actually, that’s an insult to  Jimmy  Carter.

The split screen was most devastating. Mitt   Romney spoke forthrightly, with carefully studied facts and details at  the  ready. He looked right at the president and accused him of being  miles out of  his depth.

Mr. Obama? His eyes were glued to his  lectern, looking guilty and angry and  impatient with all the vagaries of  Democracy. This debate was seriously chafing  him.

What  exactly was Mr. Obama’s strategy here? Did he figure with so many  people  unemployed in this abomination of an economy he should go for the   sympathy vote? Like voters could relate to a guy who is just scared  pantsless  that he is about to lose his job?

Romney’s performance was so overwhelming that even in San Fransisco he was seen as the victor. In a CBS poll of the area , 48% saw Romney as the clear victor. Their Poll data showed:

African Americans were the only demographic group in California to see Obama as a winner — and only narrowly, the CBS 5 poll found.

Whites, Hispanics and Asians all viewed Romney as the clear winner, according to the poll results.

Among other demographic breakdowns, men by 24 points and middle-income viewers by 27 points saw Romney as the clear winner.

Only younger Californians, those age 18 to 34, saw the debate as a draw. Viewers age 35 and over all said Romney won.

Finally, this thread at Hotair will illuminated the  resounding victory by Mitt Romney last night.

In case you are wondering.

I think he won too.

  1. One of my professors yesterday asked me if I was a Republican or Democrat. I think she felt differently, but now I’m really looking forward to class tomorrow!
