For anyone who doubted whether Romney had the juice to change the course of the campaign, they would be convinced after Romney’s solid performance in the first Presidential Debate.
As one person on twitter said, “Mitt Romney: worth the wait.”
I had argued that Romney didn’t need to hit a home run – he just needed to not screw up.
Well, he hit a home run.
I tweeted near the end of the debate that Mitt’s performance will lead to a slight bump in the polls, he’ll raise a new pile of money over the next few days, and there will be a renewed energy among the volunteer base.
This was a good, good night for Romney.
And it was a pretty crappy way for Obama to spend his anniversary.
