Obama's closing argument



He wanted it. Yes. Very persuasive closer there. I felt emotion from Obama tonight, as I did in the second debate as well.

This one seemed a little more enjoyable than the other two. There was no awkward mano-a-mano ambling around the stage and confrontation as characterized by the second debate. No sleepy Obama from the first encounter.

Obama seemed focused like a laser. He took advantage of the openings he was given on China, the military and commander-in-chief moral authority. He had that hard stare thing going on that totally worked.

I don't think you could have asked for a better night from Obama as he closed the debates out. Whether it will be enough to hang on and overcome Romney's economy rhetoric...I sure as heck hope so.
