As predicted, ratings for the third presidential debate were way down (except on Fox News) Monday night, so I figured I'd revisit Mitt Romney's closing argument to voters:


"We need strong leadership.  I'd like to be that leader."

The Obama campaign is still spinning that their guy won the final debate, but actions speak louder than words.  Contrast this message with the thin gruel of the president's closing argument. Meanwhile, investigative journalist Bob Woodward has churned out yet another fact-check of Obama, who played very fast and loose with the truth in his futile attempts to bait Romney into an angry discussion. Thirteen days, and counting...

UPDATE - Just for fun: "This nation. Me."
