Romney's behind and the debates are his last best shot to turn things around. Michael Tomasky tells us how Mitt can make it happen--and what Obama can do to stop him.

Mittens has spent the last several months memorizing and practicing "zingers"-how LAME.
But, that is all the man has...he can't run on his record...he won't discuss in detail any plans he has, he won't share his tax returns...
He wants to create moments. We don't need moments, we need specifics!!!

Thanks Carrie.

If the debates are Mittens last best shot to avoid the worst defeat in American history, then it's just his tough luck that he simply has no ammunition. Someone needs to tell Willard that Barney Fife has retired; Mayberry could use a new deputy.

Romney has already created too many moments - unfortunate moments!

Mitt is already talking about clean coal & the pipeline. He cares nothing about the environment.

Did anyone else find it rude when he insisted on talking when it wasn't his turn in the format he had agreed to abide by? Wish I'd had a stop watch to clock how much extra he spoke, most of it without facts as content but mere assertions and fluff...nothing related to higher education or how to balance the budget without adding hugely to the deficit his the expectation that deep revenue cuts now for some mystical future revenues (that weren't forthcoming the last time that approach was tried)...but the conservative commentators seem to think his performance strengthened his GOP voter support.

Romney is not going down in the worst defeat in American history. It would be way too hard to top McGovern's loss to Nixon, or Mondale's loss to Reagan. Obama has lost much of his luster, it just remains to be seen how much that will affect him.

Jo--are you talking popular vote or electoral college?

I have to admit that Romney did better than I expected him to. However, he's guilty of a couple of blatant lies regarding his $5 trillion tax cut plan and elements of President Obama's investment in green energy that will be exposed by fact checkers, and we STILL don't know what his plan is --with regard to anything. He keeps making promises that he will fix everything that's broken and make life a heaven on earth for everyone, but he doesn't have a specific plan. And when did he start liking the moochers, takers, bums, losers and freeloaders --to whom he otherwise refers to as 47% of America's citizens? The moderator could have been sleeping for all the difference he made. He let Romney bully him into taking over the job as moderator. Romney showed no respect for the President, either. He made a remark, in reference to the President, about "his sons" being in the habit of trying to make him believe things that aren't true. Was that his way of saying that he sees the President as being at the same level as his kids --and that they all lie?

He may have won some independent voters --if they don't bother to follow up on the fact-checking that will undoubtedly be done by the experts.

What I saw was a completely different Willard at this debate. I agree with Susanne. He pandered to the middle--which he wasn't doing before. Wondering how the teabaggers at FuxNoise will spin his answers.
