You're reading: Obama won the debate

Both of
them made some mistakes. When raked about slow jobs growth, Obama cited growth
in oil and gas production. It gave Romney an opening to praise private sector
and denigrate the government. Obama should have zeroed in on Republican
obstructionism in Congress when he proposed jobs programs in the last two
years.

Romney was
piling up nonsense, loudly and repeatedly. He offered no coherent plan for anything.
Somehow the pundits didn’t notice it. He offered no specifics, as Obama
correctly (and overly gently) pointed out.

How would
he balance the budget and cut taxes at the same time? He offered the stock
“supply side” answer: It would not be a problem in a growing economy. The same
answer George Bush gave in 2001  —
replied Obama.
