1. Big Bird
2. Binders of women
3. "Act of terror"

He mentioned these three items deliberately, each of which have caused a frenzy of activity in the media. The first two made the Democrats focus on things that had ZERO significance to any voter. While the third one (exact words) deliberately went to the Garden speech which BO was so proud of.

In the third debate all he had to do was be himself, and to let BO be himself.

What do you think of this strategy?

If making a fool out of himself in the 2nd debate and surrendering the 3rd debate to Obama was a intentional, then he succeeded in executing this 'strategy'.

only someone who was paying no attention would think he made a fool of himself in round 2 or surrendered in round 3....He was cool, didn't get flustered and let the Pres come across as a scared, cracky old man, even if he is only 50...He could have talked about Libya a little more, but that is geting a little old. It is being investigated, most of us accept the pres royally screwed up, so lets consentrate on the economy, which is what the majority of the voters really care about right now. BTW, did you really watch the debate and did you watch any of the comments after the debate? I did, the only network I did not watch was MSNBC.

I watched the debate. Romney looked the same way Obama looked during the 1st debate. He looked like he did not want to be there, and he looked shocked to discover that his foreign policy "ideas" had already been put in place years ago by Obama. He didn't bring anything to the debate and he looked like he gave up the debate and let Obama win. He was out of his depth. As for Libya, Romney tried to score cheap points with that tragedy weeks ago, and got slapped down during the 2nd debate, and he came out looking like a jerk. It did not surprise me he didn't go there again.

Romney looked like he was completely out of his depth last night. He was just repeating what his debate preps told him to say and was virtually endorsing Obama. Mitt looked like a CEO who was visiting another company and trying to learn how they do things.
Loved how Romney said that Obama shouldn't be attacking him..... So what will he do when other Countries and our enemies attack him as Commander in Chief...... go hide in the corner with his thumb in his mouth............ Romney can dish it out but can't take it.... his whole campaign has been about attacking Obama.
Romney looked like a nodding dog last night and had NOTHING to contribute to the debate..... he showed America that he really is just a puppet and a empty suit.

Surprised nobody caught Mitts geographical blunder last night when early in the debate he said Syria was Iran's Gateway to the sea....Not sure what he was thinking but Iran has a very large coastline bordering on the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, getting to the Mediterranean through Syria would involve a lot of traveling across desert.
Certainly the same old from Mitt in last nights debate,nothing new or revealing just the same old try and Bs your way into winning and hope enough suckers buy into it...

He got slapped down because the moderator was totally factually wrong and totally out of place. This is something even most liberal commentators have been saying for the past week. I think her actrions stunned Romney so much he was speechless. Other than that he was right on.Yes, Obama did come out on top in the second debate but by very little. As for last night, I think many are wondering why Romney didn't dwell on Libya but my feeling: everything that can be said, has been. The Pres screwed up: why I don't know. He then tried to cover his mistake by blaming the movie. That has backfired, there isn't much more to discuss about it and the economy is the issue, more than anything. Romney showed class last night and showed he is truely Presidentual...How you can even begin to compare him with Obama, the first night shows you are so biased you can't be objective. As I mentioned, most of the media feel both men did fine overall. Romney could have been a little more aggressive, but didn't want to open up any holes and Obama could have been a bit less insulting and snarky. His demeaner was not very Presidentual...If you want to feel Romney just gave up, go right ahead. No one is going to change your mind...

She only confirmed what Obama has just said, which was factually correct.

He was weak, and out of ammo, and that does not make him look like a good candidate. To me he looked as bad as Obama in the 1st debate.

If you call a defeat "brilliance" then I dont' know what to tell you.
