The big spin from the Democrats the day after the first presidential debate is that Mitt Romney won the "preparation race" for the debate. Hey, these two people want to be president of the United States. This is the most important public position on the planet. What I saw was that the one with the long, long history of success (Romney) did what winners do -- he did what was necessary to once again be successful. On the other hand, the one who has almost no track record of success (including four years as president), did what mediocre people do: not enough. Specific policies aside, seeing those two in the same room, how can anyone truly expect President Obama to be more successful in the next four years than Romney? You'd have to completely turn a blind eye to what is blatantly obvious.
