The BBC seems to be having trouble with its tenses. "If the gap between the candidates narrows, it will be a huge boost for the Republican campaign - and suggests Romney could win the White House, writes Mark Mardell."
I was awake and heard this debate. Obama was drab. Romney was sparkling.
The trouble was that while Obama made a kind of mind-numbing sense, Romney was talking shit.
Whatever Obama said he denied it without argument or evidence.
I imagine another argument:
Romney: So you don't believe in God? Well then who made the sherbert fizz?
And the crowd looks impressed. Yes, they say, look; he can't answer that one. Romney's right, you know.
