Mitt Romney won yesterday’s debate so handily that left of center media spent much of the day trying to explain why President Obama’s performance was less than stellar. It could be summed up by one of Romney’s lines: "Mr. President, you are entitled to your own airplane, your own house, but not your own facts."
President Obama stumbled (and I don’t take delight in others misfortunes) because he has not been challenged on the same stage by another since 2008. Romney called a spade a spade and held his own when Obama tried to divert attention away from his record. The debate was a turning point in the election. The president’s rhetoric and eloquence is wearing thin and more of the electorate is seeing that the game is up.
