There was plenty of real-time spin that came across C&E's Twitter feed during last night's debate.
The short version: Dem consultants were a hell of a lot happier Tuesday night, and Republicans don't really like Candy Crowley.
Some of the best consultant tweets from last night:
OH!POTUS: "I don't look at my pensions as much as yours.Yours is much bigger so it takes longer." #debate— Paul Begala (@PaulBegala) October 17, 2012
Romney mishandled Libya as much as he mishandled his trip to England. He should have gone to diplomacy school instead of HBS.— Tad Devine (@taddevine) October 17, 2012
Crowley picking softballs for Obama, picking hardballs for Romney. Is Obama going to be asked a hard question? #debate— Glen Bolger (@posglen) October 17, 2012
Candy, we're keeping track, too.Obama 15:01 (and counting) vs. Romney 14:18. #debate2012— David Almacy (@almacy) October 17, 2012
As for who came out on top...
Democrats will be enthused again. Romney didn't hurt himself with base, but didn't help with the few undecideds.— John Weaver (@JWGOP) October 17, 2012
Tonight’s winner? Long Island accents...— mike murphy (@murphymike) October 17, 2012
Also, this seems like something the Commission on Presidential Debates should really consider...
I'm telling you, the Giant Fighting Robot debate format is going to be awesome.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) October 17, 2012
