So far, I'm not impressed by either candidate's performance. I have, however, had a hard time following any of Romney's arguments. He started well, but it is getting less coherent as we go.

An analyst stated to watch Romney's hands tonight. If he begins talking with his hands - he's getting flustered and that Romney normally speaks with his hands by his side.

He's using his hands... wink

romney was vague. at least the president offered some specifics. not a sexy debate. perhaps more potatoes than meat.
