Romney was better than fantastic in the first debate on October 3, 2012. He completely dominated the whole thing. Romney looked like he was having fun while explaining his excellent solutions for our nation's problems while Obama offered nothing and he looked like he didn't want to be there. Even most Democrats agree Obama lost the debate. One liberal called Romney "sleazy"and he said he couldn't understand how Romney managed to completely steal the night. I hope the liberal shows some respect for Romney after he throws Obama out of the White House.
Not long after the debate, Ohio, which was a swing state and then became a state that Obama owned, became a swing state again with Obama and Romney virtually even in the polls. At the same time polls showed Romney was winning in another very important swing state, Florida where I live.
Not long ago I was convinced Obama would win the election easily. Now I'm convinced Romney's momentum will continue to strengthen and he will be our next president. I'm ready to bet on it.
Romney won the first debate and I expect him to win the two remaining debates. Also, I'm absolutely certain Paul Ryan (the Republican candidate for Vice-President) will easily win his debate with the current Vice-President (who cares what his name is).
Obama's problem is it's difficult to defend our weak economy after having four years to fix it. Obama has been making things worse instead of better. Romney has a lifetime of business experience (compared to Obama's zero business experience) so Romney understands what owners of small businesses need to be successful. Romney loves America's job creators and he will give them what they need. What job creators don't need is higher taxes but that's what our anti-business president has been threatening for a long time. Every time Obama opens his mouth he convinces job creators to stop creating jobs.

The Obama Matrix. Romney's triumph came from exposing the President's campaign illusions.
