I keep hearing "Romney won the presidential debate," and "The president wasn't up to it, seemed overwhelmed, kept looking down," etc.
But in spite of any previously agreed to "debate rules," Mitt Romney charged ahead, ran over moderator Jim Lehreh, over and over again on his allotted time. But near the end when Lehreh stopped President Obama, he wouldn't give him the 13 seconds he believed were his.
So was it a fair debate? Or was it a barrage, a charge ahead by one guy whose attitude made it clear -- "I am above the rules, I am going to do whatever I want to do, say all that I have to say"?
Are the "rules are not for me" guy approach an indication of the kind of president he might become?
What about NATO? What about the U.N.? What about negotiating? What about military command?
In this day of everybody going 100 mph and more, we had better pause, ignore the polls and think about where we are going.
