Not counting Romney out

SoVaNow.com / October 11, 2012
Dear Viewpoint:

In the first Presidential debate I thought Governor Romney had a great performance. He was sharp, direct and aggressive. His performance surprised the viewing audience. President Obama on the other hand seemed almost lifeless, looking down quite a bit and didn’t appear to be as sharp as he usually is.

Mitt Romney’s performance energized Romney supporters throughout the country. I wouldn’t count him out yet in the race for the White House. The race is really close. He could still win this encounter.
