I thought Mitt Romney did well in this debate, considering he had to not only debate Obama, but also had to deal with Candy Crowley, who is obviously in the Obama camp. Not only did she interrupt Romney 28 times, she also played fact checker on the Libyan question and got it wrong, She had to retract that, after the debate. Just as a point of information, the White House contradicts Obama and Crowley. CNN later issued a defense of Crowley, saying she was superb as the moderator. CNN merely confirmed that they to, are in the tank for Obama.
Quite frankly, Crowley threw Romney off with her incorrect defense of her tin god on this issue. Obama still has not called what happened in Benghazi a terrorist attack. Romney also missed some other opportunities such as not challenging Obama on the Lily Ledbetter Act. I would have wanted to know why the Obama White House pays women 18% less than men. Also, Romney should not ask Obama questions that Romney did not provide the answer first.
As for Obama, the only way he could have done worse than the first debate, would have been if he did not show up. He did manage to get Romney's 47% comments in, but in a some what underhanded way, by injecting it into his closing statement, which Romney could not defend.
By now, we have all hears the arguments from the pundits, analysts and assorted others on who did better or won this debate. As far as I am concerned, their opinions are of no consequence. The folks that matter, the undecided voters, tell us that Romney was the winner.
