BIG WIN for Romney in First Debate

The Obama machine can't make their man better than he is!

The Obama campaign machine has had months to trash Mitt Romney with negative ads that filled with lies. Significantly outspending Romney with these ads in key states has helped keep Obama up in the polls. But once you put the two men side by side on the same stage with Romney showing a clear, presidential command of the debate, Obama starts to look smaller and smaller.

GOP political strategist Mike Murphy tweets: "It’s funny; tonight Romney is much better than his campaign, Obama is far worse," and "America is seeing super competent Massachusetts Mitt now, mostly for first time." I couldn't agree more.

Two snap polls (CNN, CBS) taken immediately following the debates give Romney a win by a landslide!

Romney effectively brought up the $90 billion Obama threw down a green energy rat hole three times and mockingly told Obama that he doesn't "just pick the winners and losers; you pick the losers." [full transcript]

Romney was calm, cool and collected while Obama came off as seeming desperate to be anywhere else. This is the first time in four years that he has been put on the spot without the adoring media acolytes who usually smooth his way. He continually looked to the moderator, PBS's Jim Lehrer for help. Even Obama's own supporters thought his performance was weak.

My favorite moment. When asked about the role of government:

MR. ROMNEY: The role of government -- look behind us: the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.  
The role of government is to promote and protect the principles of those documents. First, life and liberty. We have a responsibility to protect the lives and liberties of our people, and that means the military, second to none. I do not believe in cutting our military. I believe in maintaining the strength of America’s military.

Second, in that line that says, we are endowed by our Creator with our rights -- I believe we must maintain our commitment to religious tolerance and freedom in this country. That statement also says that we are endowed by our Creator with the right to pursue happiness as we choose. I interpret that as, one, making sure that those people who are less fortunate and can’t care for themselves are cared by -- by one another.  
We’re a nation that believes we’re all children of the same God. And we care for those that have difficulties -- those that are elderly and have problems and challenges, those that disabled, we care for them. And we look for discovery and innovation, all these thing desired out of the American heart to provide the pursuit of happiness for our citizens.
But we also believe in maintaining for individuals the right to pursue their dreams, and not to have the government substitute itself for the rights of free individuals. And what we’re seeing right now is, in my view, a -- a trickle-down government approach which has government thinking it can do a better job than free people pursuing their dreams. And it’s not working. 
And the proof of that is 23 million people out of work. The proof of that is one out of six people in poverty. The proof of that is we’ve gone from 32 million on food stamps to 47 million on food stamps. The proof of that is that 50 percent of college graduates this year can’t find work.
A SOLID WIN for Romney. And perhaps the very first time many Ameicans have actually seen Mitt Romney in anything other than an Obama attack ad. Will the polls move in his favor in the days ahead? It's a safe bet they will!
