Denver Presidential Debate: Romney Looked Presidential - NYTimes.com
Jared Sperli stashed this in politics
Instead of attacking Mr. Romney, Mr. Obama praised his leadership in Massachusetts. He made it clear that Romneycare is Obamacare. He said there was no difference between them on Social Security, taking that issue off the table for no discernible reason.I’m not so shocked. Mr. Obama has made his distaste for political jousting disappointingly clear over the last four years.At least Mr. Romney also failed to fully take advantage of the situation with a rather obvous zinger. It would have gone something like this, “So, Mr. President, you admit you got your best ideas from me. I guess you think I’d do pretty well in your job?”
Romney pretty much said he'll do a lot of the same things as Obama except he'll work with the House Republicans instead of fighting with them.
