Dennis Miller (@DennisMillerDMZ):  Remember when Obama said keep your tires inflated? NOTE TO OBAMA CAMP, KEEP OBAMA INFLATED!

Robert Costa (@robertcostaNRO): Obama’s closing statement sounds almost sad. Wistful. The poetry of a rough night when he was beat by a prose man.

Robert Costa (@robertcostaNRO): Romney’s closing statement: Numbers, fact, number, fact, policy pt, fact. Nod. Fact. More numbers. End.

It seemed unanimous among both Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals, that GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney outperformed President Barack Obama in Wednesday night’s debate. While the left scrambled to figure out what went wrong, the right rallied around Romney.
Fox News political analyst Charles Krauthammer said Romney won “big” in the debate, by “two touchdowns,” in fact.
“I think Romney won and Romney won big,” he said. “It doesn’t change the game, but it changes the momentum.”
Krauthammer continued: “The Romney campaign has had a terrible month — to the extent that people are saying ‘You know, who is this guy, he seems like a sap’. All of a sudden, this Romney shows up, and he’s knowledgeable, he’s confident, and he’s got nerve. He never backed down on any of the Obama attacks.”
“In fact, every time Obama hurled a particular at him, he came back with a three point answer,” he added.
Instead of merely showing up and surviving the debate, Romney proved himself to be President Obama’s “equal,” the analyst explained, adding that if that was a boxing match, Romney won the majority of rounds.
Krauthammer said Obama was lazy in the debate and didn’t go after Romney over his controversial “47 percent” remarks, saying he wanted to “play out the 90 minutes, hold the ball and win.”
“But he didn’t. He lost,” he said of Obama.
