I hate being the “I told ya so” guy, hence, I should take some credit for my showing of credibility and word of mouth. I have been struggling for months and just recently for days in convincing my Republican friends that the game ain’t over, that Mitt Romney will step up to the plate and give a resounding rebuttal to President Obama’s lies.
They set the bar so low for Mitt Romney, that even a tie or a well performance would of put Romney at a good start, since it is after all a challenger standing foot to foot with the incumbent President. But who would of thought that Romney would just simply slap Obama in the face, that even his most passionate supporters had to scream our of despair: ‘Where the heck is Obama?’
The notion that Mitt Romney is a good debater is unquestionable. Out of 20 debates in the GOP primary season, he only lost two of them to Newt Gingrich, and prevailed against him, the best debater in town, at the two Florida primary debates.
But there’s more to it. Romney is a quick learner, but also a fighter. Whenever he was faced with a ‘do or die’ challenge, he met it with great aggressiveness and pulled it off. Iowa wasn’t supposed to be Romney’s home turf, but he won it by losing it to Santorum with 34 votes. He lost SC, but won decisively in FL after being buried, and being offered to step down for the Jeb. In Michigan, his home town, he won it, after losing steam to Santorum and the lead as the frontrunner, and so until he got the nomination in Tampa.
Because when Romney is challenged, he rises to the moment, and delivers.
The race ain’t over, the votes are not yet counted, but if anyone had any doubt in Romney’s ability to beat the President, 67% of tonight’s debate watchers have the answer loud and clear: Romney won. He won big.
