So I guess the meme this morning after is that Lehrer allowed Romney to “bully” him or some such. Well, I for one was pleasantly surprised by Lehrer. Instead of running cover for Obama he actually allowed them to run with the questions and have some back-and-forth free for all.

Unfortunately for Team O that exposes his stuttering and bumbling, but it seems to me that was the point of these debates: give us a better feel for each man. Despite the anti-Lehrer cries from the Left Obama actually had 4 more minutes to speak and yet managed to say far less…and that speaks volumes.

There’s still a long long way to go but the MSM is now grudgingly forced to cover Romney in at least a somewhat positive light, which will certainly be a first.

    Maybe it was that previously unreported wound Obama received during his bin Laden take-down that through him off his game.

    Ah, yes, the one incurred when he lept out of the crashing helicopter as Hillarry was dodging sniper fire!

    I also prefer a free-for-all style debate, where the moderators are there to provide a topics to discuss, as apposed to be the stars of the show, like the NBC/ABC/CBS crowds like to do. I hesitate to throw in CNN with this group as usually, despite their bias, they do a reasonable job in debates. Of course, Lehrer will now be Enemy No. Uno with the lefty crowd as they’ll blame him for the dismal imbalance last night. It was just a notch or two below a homicide.

    The Fish Wrap Of Record™ takes a somewhat different approach, Mr. B.

    Sad, but hilarious. That NYT report must have taken at least a couple of bottles of cheap hooch to write.

    Oh, dang, wrong link, although that one is also worthy, just in a different way.

    Try this one for the NYT spin.

    I think Lehrer’s the man for the job from this point forward. Tries to help the guy having problems in an unobtrusive/schoolteacher way, lets the conversation take a natural course, genial…what’s not to love?

  7. Syd B. says:

    The best thing Lehrer did last night for Obama was interrupt him.

    It was funny watching the debate on Xbox Live. The instant polls were all 60+% pro Obama. The bride was near yelling at the screen, and I told her to remember most watching on Xbox are 18-24 living on someone else’s dime. The Future looks bright!
