Romney Wins the First Debate

It's 10:21 PM and the first Presidential debate is just about over.
 
Mitt Romney has clearly won this debate. 
 
He has been more passionate, more energized, and more engaging. Whereas Obama looks at his notes, Romney looks at Obama. 

Romney has told more stories about specific Americans, and he has come across as more moderate than I anticipated. He's actually been a bit overly fired-up at times, but I think his energy will be appealing to undecided people who want a jolt to the system.
 
Obama is lethargic, and he has not developed any themes in his answers. He was particularly weak in explaining how he will work to increase employment. I am surprised at his poor performance.

I think this debate will upend the state of the campaign and give significant momentum to Romney.
