Axelrod-Obama Mission: Accomplished! Having avoided any sympathy for Romney, #DenverDebate seen as ”a tie” among the still yet truly undecided battleground (states) voters.
Thanks, The Hill: ”A CNN/ORC poll of registered voters who watched the debate in Denver showed 67 percent believe Romney won the debate, while just 25 percent said Obama won. A CBS poll of undecided voters showed Romney leading Obama 46 percent to 22 percent on the question of who won, with 32 percent saying they tied.”

dxm: I’m so smart sometimes sometimes it scares me. not because I actually am very smart at all, or even lucky, but like a librarian who knows where to look for and find whatever it is to be known, The Ayatolljahso got it right on the #DenverDebate by simply following the tried and true logical Axelrod-Obama strategy pattern, or reading it the same way every time template or overlay. Axelrod-Obama used the rope-a-dope on Romney; comforting him and giving him enough rope, as they say, to let him just talk and talk and talk – right into the camera saying all the things without argument from Barack that they knew they could use later in his (Romney’s) own words as sound-bytes for 47%-type TV commercials. Besides yours truly, before the debate, only Al Sharpton and Joy Reid, as seen on MSNBC, got the rope-a-dope thing right. None of the commentators after the debate last night had a clue as to what happened or what was happening. Tweety Bird (Chris Matthews) said on his broadcast today, ”I don’t get it!” Well yeah Chris, you don’t get it! Even my old fellow Barack cheerleader stand by Andrew Sullivan blew it. See Andrew Sullivan’s Presidential Debate Live Blog. Nearly 24 hours after the fact, the mainstream media is finally getting around to saying, ”Romney lied!”
