Republicans are high-fiving each other because they say former Gov. Mitt Romney won the first debate. Did he now?
President Barack Obama was careful and calculated; one might call it presidential. Romney was glib, combative and willing to change his position on anything he thought might help him win.
With a careless word, sitting presidents can negatively affect U.S. policy. Right now, Romney can turn that Etch A Sketch over and no one cares. But if a president is disingenuous, Wall Street panics.
