As for "fact checking" Mitt Romney on the auto bailout...he was right and the President was incorrect...

"The American auto industry is vital to our national interest as an employer and as a hub for manufacturing. A managed bankruptcy may be the only path to the fundamental restructuring the industry needs. It would permit the companies to shed excess labor, pension and real estate costs. The federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing and assure car buyers that their warranties are not at risk."

Just as I thought Romney was incorrect to challenge the President on what he said in the Rose Garden on Libya in the last debate (I thought he should attack in a more general sense, rather than getting mired in semantics), the President made a tactical error in challenging Romney on what he wrote in the op-ed in the New York Times...

Unfortunately, I think that the majority of the electorate will not take (or has not taken) the time to read the op-ed for themselves, thus allowing the President and his campaign to shape the narrative on what Romney's position on the bailout was...

Facts are a stubborn thing. Undecideds usually break for the challenger. If they were comfortable with the current President they wouldn't be undecided. IMO

I thought Romney played it pretty well last night. He did what I think he set out to do. Not look like a war monger, not get into petty fights with Obama, show he knows foreign policy and made people feel comfortable with the thought of him being President.  Also stressing that we need a strong economy to be a leader in the world. 

Agreed. Spot on.

Great comment Robin on the undecideds not going for the incumbent.  That is what Dick Morris has been saying for months as well.  It makes sense.  While perhaps none of us would trust our children with Dick Morris since he lives in the middle of Washington slime, he is worth listening to.  In my opinion, he "knows where the bodies are buried".

Of course it would have been funny if Obama had yelled:  "Candy?  Get the Transcript!".  But of course while that would be funny it likely would not be helpful.

We are informed, and unfortunately, many are not, and will vote, or have voted, based on what they knew when the polls open.  That may or may not have been the truth.

I think Romney was masterful in reaching the uninformed, and the undecided.  I see his campaign as a very precise execution of a solid plan.  He knows he can't reach everyone (hence his '47% comment') so he is targeting those he CAN reach.  I think he succeeded.  I remain leaning optimistic.
