"Mr. Carville, what did you think of the debate?"

"I tell you what. I can't even believe Mitt Romney is still a presidential candidate. I mean he has been running for a decade, and Flip Flop Mitt still can't stand for anything longer than two minutes! Heck, I started to think Mitt might turn into a Democrat right before my eyes. He was backing down and hiding from every position he's ever had.

And he actually gave me the creeps with that weird smile. And his eyes were full of tears. Did you notice that, Wolf? And he was sweating like Nixon in the Kennedy/Nixon debate. Ugh, the guy reminds me of Nixon but without the charm."

"Heh, heh, well now James. It seemed to me that Romney didn't do too bad. Didn't the President seem kind of listless or tired?"

"Yeah, well he didn't seem that way to me. You know, he wasn't the attack dog in this debate that some on our side might have wanted. But that's just it, this President doesn't want to be president of only half of the people. Obama may not have clobbered Romney with all the jobs Bain Capital took away from hard-working middle class Americans. But I think he knows the American people know Mitt Romney by now and know they can't trust him."

"Thanks, James. Alex, I know you have a different opinion?"

"I do, Wolf. You know, I would have to give the edge to Romney in this debate. I think he showed that he can go toe-to-toe with the President. I think he did what he needed to do."

"Well, folks, it looks like a split decision. I think both sides come away from this debate with some of their points made. John?"

"Yes, it was a close debate. I think the President came off perhaps a bit too reticent..."

"John, he's not trying to be Whiner in Chief. I thought Romney looked like someone's Chihuahua got loose in the bull pen. He was making a lot of noise."

"Ha, ha, James. Well I do think Romney seemed a little over-excited, but the pressure was really on him. I think he did fine. I'm just not sure it was enough."

This isn't what happened that night on CNN, by the way. Quite the opposite. Carville jumped right on Obama's case and Wolf and John King soon followed suit. This is just what I wish happened.

4. When Romney or Ryan say that Obama will cut defense spending.

President Obama or Biden must point the cost of getting a gallon of gas into a vehicle in Afghanistan and why when the war is ended there, the extra money used to get the gallon of gas into a truck in Afghanistan can be diverted to soldier pay and caring for veterans WITHOUT adding or cutting ONE CENT of defense funding. When Romney yells out that he will not cut debate spending, President Obama needs to come back with hard numbers. Voters understand the fucking image of paying many dollars for a gallon of gas in the middle-east or a rack of bullets in that region. The President must beat Romney at the game Romney is trying to play.
