63 Million People Saw Mitt Romney Take Obama to the Politcal Wood Shed During the 1st Presidential Debate in Denver, CO


The age old adage has never been more true than what occurred the other night during the first Presidential debate in Denver, CO dubbed the “Duel in Denver” … you do not get a second chance to make a first impression.

More than 63 million viewers watched GOP Presidential challenger Mitt Romney politically alienate Barack Obama during the debate. What many have called one of the best and worst debate performances ever, Romney easily won the debate at the night’s end, not on points, but by a knock out as seen by two post debate polls, HERE and HERE and more importantly, by the reaction of the LEFT. More people saw this debate between Romney and Obama than tuned in for the 2008 Presidential debate. For an electorate that many had deemed as uninterested, it would appear that many were engaged and saw Obama come across as not engaged and struggling to defend his failed polices or make any lucid comments.

Make that 67 million viewed.

From Mediabistro:

More than 58 million people watched the first Presidential debate last night between President Obama and Mitt Romney, up substantially from the first debate in the 2008 election cycle, which had 52.4 million viewers.

Fox News was the most-watched cable news network during the debate, and will likely be the most-watched network on TV, though final broadcast numbers will not be released until after 4 PM.

What was the end result of the victory by Mitt Romney … all the Obama attacks ads against Romney mean nothing. Romney displayed himself as a warm, classy, intelligent, reasonable candidate and man. But most importantly Romney came across as completely … Presidential!

      Andrea Mitchell suggests Romney surrogate ‘take it back’ after calling Obama ‘lazy’
      Published October 05, 2012

      Mitt Romney’s been called a lot of things on MSNBC. But when a Romney surrogate called President Obama “lazy,” it seemed to go too far for anchor Andrea Mitchell — who suggested her guest take it back.

      Mitchell was responding to characteristically feisty remarks by John Sununu, the former New Hampshire governor and top Romney surrogate known for his hard-edged slams against Democrats.

      Obama: “I Think There’s A Laziness In Me”
      Posted on December 23, 2011

      Barbara Walters, ABC News: “What’s the trait you most deplore in yourself, and the trait you most deplore in others?”

      President Obama: “Laziness.”

      Walters: “You’re lazy?”

      Obama: “You know, it’s interesting. There is a deep down, underneath all the work that I do, I think there’s a laziness in me. It’s probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii and it’s sunny outside, and sitting on the beach.

      History of the 6 “first” debates with a sitting President since 1976, shows that the challenger won all but 1 debate; for a total of 5. However, winning the first debate seemed immaterial to being elected, as the incumbent and challenger tied at 3 election wins each.
      SM: We shall see just how immaterial the debate performance was. The election is close and Obama did himself a major disservice. Had he performed well. Let me rephrase, had Obama actually shown up he could have all but finished the election.

      Instead, Obama broke the cardinal rule of sports and politics … Obama allowed the underdog to stay in the game and in fact made the underdog give 68+ million people the visual that Romney looks, speaks and acts Presidential.

      Sorry, but Obama blew it but what else would we expect from a coddled President who has been protected by the MSM for 5 years running.

      Obama was like the bully who’s bluff was called and he folded like a cheap suit.

      I cannot only conclude that Barack Obama had the impression that he was somehow above the rules of the debate. Such arrogance!!

And as a consequence, people are covered there. It hasn’t destroyed jobs. And as a consequence, we now have a system in which we have the opportunity to start bringing down cost, as opposed to just —
