Romney’s Debate Victory

So it was more than partisan glee that lifted our spirits when a supremely skilled, razor-sharp Romney sailed to victory over Obama in Denver. It was the release of years’ worth of pent-up frustration at the fact that Mr. Obama has skated by with platitudes, lies, misrepresentations, and “cool” — while the nation we love, still “the last best hope of earth,” seemed to be sliding toward the drain.

With a brilliant and nearly perfectly pitched performance, Mitt Romney highlighted Mr. Obama’s distortions and lies, sometimes with simple declarative sentences — “Virtually everything he just said about my tax plan is inaccurate” — and sometimes with humor. When Obama recited one of his favorite faux facts, that companies get “a tax break for shipping jobs overseas,” Romney, in one of his tidy and organized catalogue of corrections, responded, “You said you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas. Look, I’ve been in business for 25 years. I have no idea what you’re talking about. I maybe need to get a new accountant.”
