There's a difference between winning and making your opponent look like a total bafoon.
no doubt obama looked like a buffoon - I've said that louder than anyone. Romney looked stellar.
BUT will there be any long-term damage from it? I didn't see any obama QUOTES that he made, aside from 100 "uhhhhh" lines.
Romney, on the other hand, did say some things which are being used against him now in commercials. It's like emptying your gun to scare off a bear, while a pack of wolves get together on your other side. What kind of shift in swing states do you predict htis week, coach?
