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

Romney mishandled Libya as much as he mishandled his trip to England. He should have gone to diplomacy school instead of HBS.

Crowley picking softballs for Obama, picking hardballs for Romney. Is Obama going to be asked a hard question? #debate

As for who came out on top…
I say that was a draw, and the big losers were the voters– especially as the debate went on. #2012debate #debates

Democrats will be enthused again. Romney didn’t hurt himself with base, but didn’t help with the few undecideds.

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.
