→ Victor Davis Hanson on the Debates

By now there is a clear pattern in the three debates: The Democratic candidates are running as if they are not incumbents and talk vaguely about what they might like to do rather than concretely about they have actually done the last four years — often as faux conservatives in touting tax cuts and more drilling. They more often speak, interrupt, and gesticulate, and the moderators are far more accommodating toward them — while Romney and Ryan have the greater recall of facts and present the more systematic argumentation in the face of guffaws, snarls, and meandering emoting.The radically shifting polls reflect that reality: Voters seem not so interested in tit-for-tat score-keeping as much as which candidates seem the more reliable, civil, informed, and trustworthy.

I have watched the other two debates, but I have a feeling I will be watching the NLCS tonight instead of the debate. I have seen all I need to see.
