Romney Presidential, Victorious in Debate

By Dick Morris, Fox News

By scoring big on the economy, gas prices, and Libya, Romney continued his  victorious string of debate wins. He looked more presidential than Obama did and  showed himself to be an articulate, capable, attractive, compassionate leader  with sound ideas.

Obama came over as boorish and Biden-esque. He did not  learn from his Vice President’s mistakes. When a president gets into a bar room  brawl, he loses his dignity and his aura, key assets for an incumbent. Romney  was polite but firm. Obama seemed quarrelsome, frustrated, nasty, and  cranky.

But the key reason for the Romney win was substantive:

1.  Romney made very clear the case against Obama’s economic record and Obama’s  rebuttal about 5 million jobs was pathetic.

2. Romney injected the China  issue, big time, and tapped into a strong public sentiment on the issue.

3. Romney made the effective case that Obama is anti-oil, coal, and gas and that  this has doubled gas prices.

4. Romney was very effective in  differentiating himself from Bush-43 and in establishing that, unlike the GOP of  the past, he was for small businesses not big businesses

5. Romney  rebutted the attacks on him over Chinese investments.

6. Romney explained  his tax plan well and to everyone’s satisfaction.

7. Obama erred in  trying to make us believe that he always felt Libya was a terror attack. We all  heard him blame the movie.
Obama scored points over the 47% statement by  Romney, immigration, and by his response to the accusation that he went to Vegas  after the murder of the Ambassador.

But this debate goes to Romney. It  seals his momentum and will lead to a big win.
