9:37 PM: Bipartisanship! Romney and Obama form tacit agreement to make the debate about domestic policy. Classic Schiefer smackdown.
9:38 PM: Is Mitt sweating a lot?
9:39 PM: Romney’s looking flustered now.
9:41 PM: My sense is that Obama’s tone and command is rising now and Romney’s getting more scattered. Sort of like Obama’s feeling more confident and Romney less.
9:43 PM: TPM Reader AP has a different take so far. He writes: “I hear Obama attacking Romney. I hear Romney laying out a vision, however disjointed. Disjointed won’t matter - most voters aren’t as informed as you. I don’t see this as good for the President.” That’s not my take. But wanted to share with you.
9:44 PM: God, I’ve been waiting for someone to call out the ridiculousness of Romney’s comparison fo the fleet size of the 1917 and 2012 US Navies.
9:47 PM: Mitt looks like he’s lost his footing.
9:48 PM: Like the auto bailout, Mitt now claims Obama’s policies are his own.
9:49 PM: Romney is making a rousing case for Obama’s policy.
9:52 PM: One guy up there looks comfortable and happy. The other looks like he’s in pain.
