The reviews are in and the unanimous consensus is that Mitt Romney trounced Barack Obama in the debates.  There’s no doubt that Romney was going to come prepared for a fight.  What shocked me about last night’s debate was how badly Obama performed.  We all know that Obama has no real answer for his dismal performance on the economy, however you’d think he would have been more effective in delivering the typical DNC talking points.  What you’ll find when reading the articles below is the overwhelming conclusion that Obama was completely out of his league last night.  After last night’s decisive win by Romney, it is clearer now that Obama hasn’t the ability, the ideas or the leadership skills to move this country forward.  Republicans must redouble their efforts to get Mitt Romney elected in November.

Below are just a sample of articles from a wide variety of news outlets analyzing last night’s debate.

Presidential race reset, Romney backers say

Romney energizes campaign with feisty debate performance

Mitt Romney energized his campaign for president Wednesday night, charging out of his first debate having, by most accounts from both sides of the political spectrum, dominated President Obama in a standoff for which he was evidently well-prepared. (more…)

Like Reagan, Romney can still win

This is the best of the mix of pre-debate articles and one every Republican needs to read.  Marc A. Thiessen at The Washington Post writes about how Ronald Reagan was trailing Jimmy Carter in the polls prior to the debates.  Reagan’s strong debate performance dramatically changed the course of the campaign.  Thiessen’s article makes a powerful case for why Romney could easily change the trajectory of the polls with a strong debate performance and win the election easily.

Here’s an excerpt:

The electorate may be similarly volatile today. A recent ABC News poll found that 22 percent of the electorate is “persuadable” — both anxious about how their preferred candidate would perform as president and interested in finding out more about the other candidate. Among independents, the number of persuadable voters is even higher — 26 percent. In other words, the election could swing dramatically in the closing weeks and even the final days — and it could swing in either direction. According to ABC, persuadable voters “include essentially equal number of Barack Obama’s and Mitt Romney’s supporters.” (more…)
