The most consistent thing you'll find in these fact checks is that Romney's $5 trillion tax cut pledge isn't fact-checkable because he's not telling the public how he's going to pay for it.
As we noted on our twitter barrage during the debate last night: "combine 'some' agencies? ...name them."
Regardless, as we also noted, Romney was well-prepared and Obama was meandering. (The only rehearsing Obama seemed to have done was to have his shout out to Michelle for their anniversary down.)
Romney, like an eager A-student whose hand shoots up at every question, clearly won the debate last night, including getting off the best sound bite: "Trickle-down government"—a catchy (and less crazy sounding) way of blaming Obama for creeping socialism.
And Obama fans: Stop blaming the ref.
To quote the most telling tweet we saw last night (from a Seattle ... pardon, Vashon Island! ... lefty): "I'll vote for you, dude. But Obama: GET IT TOGETHER."
