What about President Obama or Gov. Romney?

Well, the winner depends on whom you are following, but there seemed to be a distinct trend that Romney brought more game than Obama who lacked some of the energy seen on the campaign trail. Even Obama’s deputy campaign manager admitted on CNN that Romney won the debate.

Some highlights from the pundits’ Twitter accounts:

VANITY FAIR ‏@VanityFair: Has Obama ever been this off his game?

Piers Morgan ‏@piersmorgan: I don’t have a horse in this race, but Romney’s romping home a clear winner tonight.

Michael Crawford ‏‪@dmcrawford‬‬: Can Michelle tag in for Barack? #debate

And from the less political types focusing on debate mannerisms and tactics:

Duke ‏‪@DukeStJournal‬‬: The real advantage Romney has tonight is his willingness to be confrontational. Obama is losing by talking about Romney, not to him. #debate
