    The faster Romney speaks makes him appear desperte.

      I would like to make two comments. I noticed how Romney was unable to put his speech notes into his suit breast pockets after the debate. He fumbled and finally gave the notes to his son. He was at a loss with this simple manipulation. I heard before the debate that he had a peanut butter and honey sandwich. I see during the debate an almost hyperactive Romney. Could this be from the honey or steroids? My husband is receiving steroids in his chemotherapy treatment. I see a total change in my husbands movement and speech behavior similar to Romney.
      I never would have seen this except for the coincidence of my husband receiving steroids now. I know the Mormons
      do not drink anything like caffeine or alcohol. Can the issue of stimulant be sidestepped by an injection?

    I really wonder what a lie detector test run on Romney would come up with? But, I think he boxed himself in for good now. He'll have a hard time selling everyone for stupid.
