BuzzFeed called it early and the liberal media piled on: Mitt Romney won the first presidential debate in Denver. A number of liberals admitted to Obama’s defeat, calling Romney’s performance more aggressive, energetic, and confident.

Editor-in-chief Ben Smith called it at 9:42 p.m.:

Mitt Romney, trailing in the polls, needed to prove tonight that he could stand on stage with President Barack Obama as an equal and a plausible president of the United States.

He did that in the crucial first 40 minutes of Wednesday night’s debate, addressing Obama respectfully, even warmly — but then tangling with a sometimes hazy and professorial Obama on taxes and deficits.

“You don’t just pick the winners and losers — you pick the losers,” he told Obama of his energy investments, sliding time and time again into a second person singular address calculated to level the rhetorical playing field.

Andrew Sullivan chimed in minutes later, blasting Obama’s performance, calling it “exhausted, over-briefed… or just flailing”:

What happened to all that nasty talk about the liberal media that was going to conspire against Rommey ? Even his supporters are flip flopers. So remember this article the next time some of you want to complain about the 'liberal media'....I 'll remind ya if you far as a win...neither from the first hand opinons of a cross section of Party lines. Kind of boring from what I heard ...and no I didn't watch them...they aren't going to change any minds as to who to vote for after them...not more than a handful which will have no effect on election great moments for either is the only reason for that I imagine.

Maybe the next one will be more excited for one or the other ...hope so. I wouldn't call the win just yet but then I never do with these debates until the last one happens...but I am also not into the sport of unjustified hype by either choir over things that are actually very calm as this debate was ..It all still comes down to Obama for four more or another four like the eight of Dubya Bush..aka..the Republican party that ended just four years ago...and if the teabaggers will do as they did in the election and cause the Republicans to lose what little chance they had in the first my opinion. .

Romney was stellar. Obama looked like a deer in teleprompter works every time.

Like some of the 'real' liberal media I didn't understand why the President didn't to for the kill on a few of Mitt's lies. One the tax cut, the studies Mitt quoted were WSJ opinion pages where 10 of the writers are his advisers. There are still no specifics where Mitt would not increase debt with his tax cuts, 20% across the board - and yes between that and leaving the Bush second round of tax cuts in place with out specific huge cuts will create $5-$6 trillion in debt. But if Americans believe we can balance the budget over the long haul by only cutting spending, well then really welcome to Italy, Spain etc in 2015 or so.

Not so, Randy. Putting millions of Americans back to work is the answer to bring in more revenue. Creating the jobs is key. Obama wasted millions and millions picking loser green companies. Once we vote the Obama's out of our White House, and bring Romney and Ryan in, you'll see a surge in every single corner of our ountry both in confidence and in growth. Obama tied the hands of the middle class early in 2009 when he ignored the help to small businesses. With Romney and Ryan, Americans will once again feel confident to spend their money.
