President Obama and Governor Romney battled to a draw on foreign policy points tonight, with each candidate scoring on several lines. As expected, the discussion meandered into domestic policy for a large portion of the evening, and both men came prepared with a flurry of talking points. Romney needed to strike casual viewers are informed, poised, and plausible as president. He accomplished that task, without question. The president often seemed like the aggressor, hammering his challenger in almost every answer he gave.

I think Romney played it smart not to seek the fight and hammering Obozo over the head with his Benghazi debacle. Instead he showed restraint and how poised he can be, like a real president should. Although I feel he did a great job I would have added to it by addressing the American people more "presidential" in his closing argument. Like :"I have heard your worries and I'll do my very best when elected to get you the jobs you need and the security you want for your children's future" while looking straight into the camera. Kinda like a Presidential address to the Nation.That would have sold it, I believe. I have to admit Bob Schieffer did a remarkable job, shaming Crowley big time. That's what a moderator is supposed to do. Kudos.
