Jim Lehrer Was The Biggest Loser Of The First Presidential Debate

PBS moderator Jim Lehrer totally lost control over the debate on Wednesday night.

The candidates spoke well over the allotted 2-minute time for answers and rebuttals, and instead of the six planned topics, only five were covered during the 90-minute showdown. 

Republican candidate Mitt Romney took the opportunity to dominate the conversation, steer topics his way, and have the last word on pretty much every topic.

Watch below a mashup of Lehrer’s desperate attempts to get the attention of the candidates, and Romney’s winningly-aggressive debate style.
