I received a bunch of "Fact Check" emails from President Obama's campaign last night. I didn't bother reading them.
You see, I agree with most of the pundits from MSNBC to Fox News. Mitt Romney won. Check that. Mitt Romney won big.
And frankly - at this point - it is not about fact-checking or spinning. It is about comfort.
In the last few weeks, I have spoken with many folks who voted for Obama last time around. Some are young and some are not. Most are disillusioned with that guy who said he was all about hope and change. They have come to realize that he is not what they thought he would be.
So - quietly - they have been checking out Mitt Romney. And they have wanted to see if they are comfortable with him.
Last night showed that they could be.
I called into a talk radio show in Orlando last week - The Bud Hedinger Show. I told the Bud-man that Romney is the most qualified person to ever run for president. Bud asked why.
I noted that Romney knows how the economy really works and he has proven he can work in a bipartisan way. I said he is a man with conviction and a man of faith.
These are the things that matter to swing voters, independents and moderates. And this is what came through last night.
Voters now know they can be comfortable with Mitt Romney as President of the United States.
However, the devil can be in the details. So the next two times around, Mitt will need to have a few more specifics. Not many, mind you. But enough to show the middle that he has a handle.
