I watched much of the debate that was on today. Not closely. I had the stream on in the background while I was working on other things.
My impression is that Romney interrupted Obama constantly. Obama was polite, reserved but assured. Romney was condescending and at times bordering on ridicule and rudeness.
I don’t really have a opinion on either of the two leaders, but the twitter and facebook streams were definitely favouring Romney for the win. However I wonder if that was as much to do with how people were feeling about the candidate before the debate, than the debate itself. Did they just find things that reinforced their beliefs, rather than look at it objectively?
Its an interesting phenomenon for me, as an Australian Christian, to observe the total distaste many American Christians have for Obama.
