Romney won the second debate

By Dick Morris

Published October 17, 2012

| FoxNews.com

By scoring big on the economy, gas prices, and Libya, Romney continued his victorious string of debate wins. He looked more presidential than Obama did and showed himself to be an articulate, capable, attractive, compassionate leader with sound ideas.

Obama came over as boorish and Biden-esque. He did not learn from his Vice President's mistakes. When a president gets into a bar room brawl, he loses his dignity and his aura, key assets for an incumbent. Romney was polite but firm. Obama seemed quarrelsome, frustrated, nasty, and cranky.

But the key reason for the Romney win was substantive:

1. Romney made very clear the case against Obama's economic record and Obama's rebuttal about 5 million jobs was pathetic.

2. Romney injected the China issue, big time, and tapped into a strong public sentiment on the issue.

3. Romney made the effective case that Obama is anti-oil, coal, and gas and that this has doubled gas prices.

4. Romney was very effective in differentiating himself from Bush-43 and in establishing that, unlike the GOP of the past, he was for small businesses not big businesses

5. Romney rebutted the attacks on him over Chinese investments.

6. Romney explained his tax plan well and to everyone's satisfaction.

7. Obama erred in trying to make us believe that he always felt Libya was a terror attack. We all heard him blame the movie.

Obama scored points over the 47% statement by Romney, immigration, and by his response to the accusation that he went to Vegas after the murder of the Ambassador.

But this debate goes to Romney. It seals his momentum and will lead to a big win.

I am trying very hard to be as unbiased as I can, yet I have to say, I agree.  Obama certainly looked like he had a pulse last night, but even with the Crowley BS, Romney did a better job of getting his points across in a clear and understandable way.

 A bunch of Jews from Long Island are probably going to be die hard Obama supporters no matter what.  I'm sorry, but that's what the audience was mostly comprised of, from what I could tell.

I watched endured it twice.  Obama is so unlikeable that I frankly would not be able to sit through a semester of his college lectures.  He doesn't talk to the audience, he lectures the audience and frankly, one thing I hate is being lectured by anyone.

You know how relentless I've been on FB with Obama information, specifically for the purpose of educating and changing minds.  I almost fainted last night-my super liberal, 27 year old, Bay Area niece actually exclaimed " as a taxpayer she is for Romney"  THAT is quite a stretch for someone who grew up steeped in liberalism.  (she also posted that as a woman, she's for Obama, so I still have some work to do).
