As a performance, Romney gave his best speech I’ve ever heard from him. Which suggests to me that he’ll be better in debates (given how well prepared he seemed for the speech) than I or others might’ve thought he’d be. He’ll be ready to go, if tonight’s any indication.

Much of the substance of his speech left him open to all kinds of rejoinders from the Obama campaign.
