Best Tweets of the Final Debate — Romney as The President, Obama as desperate challenger

Best proof Romney won? I’m watching MSNBC for the reaction - Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion
Romney is very cleverly turning foreign policy into an appeal to women. #2012

Romney: “Attacking me is not an agenda.” Fantastic. Debate over.

Romney just jabbed Obama about the ‘flexibility after the election’ comment to Medvedev

Did Romney just move another small step toward the presidency? - Paul Mirengoff/Powerline
Eventually, once he felt he had accomplished his primary mission, Romney did what I have been advocating – tying our current ills to that fact that Obama presented an appearance of weakness early in his administration. He cited Obama’s pre-election promises to negotiate with the world’s leading bad guys, his apology tour, and his stated desire to put daylight between the U.S. and Israel.

When Obama tried to laugh of the notion that he had undertaken an apology tour, Romney quoted the president’s criticism of the U.S. in Cairo and other stops in the Middle East, and added that Obama had declined to make Israel one of his stops. And Romney mixed in the fact that a majority of Democratic Senators had written to Obama complaining about his treatment of Israel. Devastating across the board. Let’s hope that people were still watching.
Wrap up: The third debate; Update: Insta-polls coming in
The nearly universal consensus on Twitter is that Romney won by holding his own, which is all a challenger needs to do in a foreign-policy debate. After watching him talk about international affairs for 90 minutes, does he seem like a guy you’d trust with the button? If yes, then mission accomplished.

Seeing a lot of outrage from military folks on Obama’s two sequestration jokes, esp. on the bayonets. A lot.

I guess that’s one thing you don’t learn as president. RT @pambestederWow! Just heard on Fox News that Marines STILL use bayonets!
— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter)

Does China sell us bayonets? Because we can cancel that order.

Heh: RT @jpodhoretz Obama just lost the Civil War reenactors with that attack on bayonets.

Next time you hear the "horses and bayonets" soundbite, remember this is the man who still can't say what went wrong in Benghazi
