Disaster Movie*

Impressions: Romney has become a very good bullshitter, and it's very easy. Just promise everybody everything. Tax cuts for everybody, more money for Medicare and Defense, a balanced budget, and magical jobs - and he'll pay for it all by cutting off NPR.

Obama really really sucked. He should fire his debate prep team. Or maybe he just fired himself. Does he really have no clue as to what he should have been doing? He was verbose, wandered into trivialities, and sulked when he should have been attacking. Romney didn't like being attacked, so Obama avoided it studiously.

Lehrer is a stinko moderator - mushy questions, no follow-up.

*My original title, though apropos for this wimpy debate, was just too wimpy.
