  1. Very nicely done. I especially like that he focused purely on policy and the facts, and resisted the impulse to point out that the “moochers” pay a greater percentage of their income in total taxes than Mitt Romney did in the one year that he saw fit to release his taxes.

  2. Who was the guy visually set up as parallel to Obama? Obviously it should have been Mitt, but I suppose it was some Univision person?

  3. Will, you’re right. My comment was – what’s the phrase – inelegantly stated. I meant that he focused on facts and numbers about people, without ever saying anything that might seem like a potshot against Romney. Why be seen as shooting at the other guy when the other guy’s doing such a good job of shooting off and shooting himself simultaneously?
