Jim Lehrer is such a badass.

Obama seems nervous. He should settle in once he gets annoyed or angry.

Romney: I will help grow small businesses!!!1!

The SBA is one of the most important lifelines available to small businesses. Republicans have been trying to kill it since Clinton's presidency.

I kind of wish Romney had asked Obama a question like Lehrer requested...
He sohuld've at the end, but if he jumped right to that, he would've been at 2 min speaking versus Obama's 4 min. He naturally had to get in his 2 minutes first.

Romney talked for like 10 minutes, then Obama gets 2 minutes and Lehrer starts groaning.

Anyone know where CNN's +/- data below the screen is coming from? How big the sample size is, and what are the possible inputs (binary approve/disapproval, scale, etc)?

Romney is going to get a huge bump in the polls. He is owning Obama.

Gallup poll tomorrow:
Obama: 39%
Romney: 61%

Romney's already getting upset. Not a good sign for him. He has to keep his cool.

So the small businesses which aren't small businesses employ the most people employed by small businesses?

Doesn't that make them large businesses?
