On Air Force One today Obama Adviser David Plouffe spoke with press about last night’s presidential debate.

“We expected an aggressive Mitt Romney. That’s who he is,” Plouffe said.  He also said the Obama campaign doesn’t believe Romney’s success in the debate “fundamnetally alters the race.”

More from the pool report:

“It’s hard to remember a time in American politics where you had someone who’s a major nominee for the presidency, being that fundamentally dishonest toward parts of his campaign platform.” …

“Romney’s performance was one that’s probably unprecedented in its dishonesty,” he said.

He says the campaign will drive home the message that Romney actually does intend to implement his policies.
