Busy night. May or may not post a longer debate-related thing, but in brief: Obama won but Romney still standing, Fox News will now spend a years trying to ruin Candy Crowley, Obama saying that low-skill jobs that’ve gone to China “aren’t coming back” and that high-end, high-skill tech and science careers are the future of the American economy is the first time a politician with something to lose has told the HARD TRUTH about jobs since John McCain said it four years ago.
However… for me, there was only one moment that stood out, and unlike a lot of people (so far) it’s not Mitt getting “live fact-checked” by the moderator about Libya.
No, the story is that he said this thing – without a hint of irony! – while standing on the same debate stage mere feet away from a man who was the child of a single mother AND GREW UP TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
