RON'S RATINGS: PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE

ANALYSIS: Both candidates achieved important objectives. Obama was crisp, specific and had command of the subject matter. His aggressiveness, though, may have rubbed some people the wrong way.

Romney presented himself as a safe alternative who is no war monger.

Romney, however, seemed much less comfortable with foreign policy issues than he did with economic issues. Overall, Obama had the advantage.

ROMNEY:

Meeting strategic goals A-

Maintaining the offensive C

Effective message delivery A-
