The blogosphere and the twitterverse does not do measured reaction well.  Yes, Governor Romney won the debate last night and while it was a win largely on style and on lies, it was still a win.  But the win was pretty predictable (and yes, I’m patting myself on the back).  But where does it leave him?  He gains back the ground he lost because of his 47% comments and the DNC.  And then he is a couple of points behind the president with a month to go.  And he’s given President Obama a lot of material to use in speeches and commercials during that month, as evidenced in the below video.
