It turns out Mitt was right , but he probably won’t carry the media day. Bobby Jindal is trying with great force to correct the record on CNN right now. Republicans need to fight hard on the spin circuit on this.
In general, Obama was between energetic and angry, as opposed to listless and distracted.
Neither candidate said anything that was unexpectedly telling or even interesting. Romney wasn’t as in command, although he remained the can-do guy who might well be a fine president. Obama did get a good 47% riff in his closing statement, but that was, of course, expected.
Romney was especially weak on the contraceptive mandate.
I assume the polls will give the president a narrow victory. Obama is back, the narrative is.
