Obama went over some at the end and at that five second comment. I saw Romney doing a lot more talking over. Go back over the debate and count how many times Jim asked Romney to stop talking and he just kept right on talking. I'm not mad at him like some are. It's the nature of politics and debate, but it's the truth.
I am glad that Romney was aggressive. It showed that he wanted it (McCain was a wimp). It was nice seeing obama get slapped. He needed it. Hopefully Romney does the same at the next debate. I do look for obama to have a different demeanor, though. They are probably drilling in to his head now about how he has to be aggressive and rude. Look for him to return to his Chicago thug tactics and have a lot of personal attacks against Romney.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
As for Romney and the percentage issue, here's another fact. More than once, Jim was trying to tell him his time was up and he wouldn't listen. There was a lot of "Uh, uh, uh" in there. That's a fact.
President Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney cut off Lehrer 30 times during the 90-minute debate ó three times as often as Obama and his then-rival Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) did in their first debate in 2008.
Of the two, Romney did it the most often, the centerís research director Dan Amundson said in an interview.
Romney interrupted Lehrer 13 times; Obama did it seven. And in 10 instances, Amundson said, everyone seemed to be talking at once.
The center also found that Lehrer was actually a bit tougher on the candidates than he was in 2008.
Darn those facts. lol.
