Who won tonight’s debate? Shockingly, Barack Obama campaign aide Stephanie Cutter acknowledged that GOP nominee Mitt Romney won “on preparation and style,” according to several Twitter users:

Impressive to watch Obama surrogates claim Obama won after Stephanie Cutter told CNN that Romney won on prep and style!

If she keeps this up, maybe Stephanocchio’s nose will begin to shrink.
Of course, it’s all Lehrer’s fault.

DENVER, Colo. — Obama spokesperson Stephanie Cutter took a swipe at moderator Jim Lehrer’s largely passive debate performance tonight, saying the PBS anchor had allowed Mitt Romney to act as the moderator.
“I sometimes wondered if we even needed a moderator because we had Mitt Romney,” Cutter told CNN shortly after the debate.
Time for Team Obama to keep her away from the mic?
Stephanie Cutter looked distraught, slammed Lehrer, and made the Obama team look hurt. Keep her off the mike. #debate2012
