For me, Chris Matthews' angry meltdown on Maddow's show last night summed it up

For me as well. And why, you ask? Because Obama failed to say any of the things he could have to counter Romney's BS. The only points of Romney's statements that represented fact were those that kill him in public opinion poles, to wit:
1. Revenues are off the table for deficit reduction
2. Medicare will be a voucher system
3. PBS? Libraries? Schools? Eff 'em.

So enjoy Romney's "win," pyrrhic though it may be. Because in the end all his performance represented was an attempt to pull off a grand shaking of the Etch-a-Sketch, all while walking out to the tip of the limb that is being held out for him by the Tea Party Caucus.

And we're seeing today that the overwhelming response to last night's debate is to call him out on that.
