I thought some of his stuff was not very strong, but he sure didn't embarrass himself. His level of performance was good enough to have hung with or beaten just about every Presidential candidate debate performance we've seen over the past 20 years. The problem was, Romney just nailed it. Either that, or it was the altitude.
