If more liberals had the following take on the present state of the election there would be a lot less grief out there.
My point is this: I am sorry that the president finds debating before the public to be annoying. And I am very sorry that more Americans don’t delve into the footnotes of position papers. And I am very sorry that Mitt Romney was mean to the moderator, and lied to the viewers. And I am especially sorry that Barack Obama was evidently shocked — shocked! — to find the party of poll-taxing, evolution-disputing, and climate-change denying engaging in such tactics.
But this is the war we have. And this president has signed up to lead the fight. I think he understands that. Over the past four years Obama has proven to be very slow, but very deadly. I doubt that’s changed.
Exactly right. It was one debate. Obama messed up, some damage was done but angst of the Andrew Sullivan type (“Romney is now kicking the president’s ass“ on the core issues) is ridiculous. No one’s ass is being kicked and this race is going to be tight all the way to the finish.
If this President has shown anything over the course of the last four years it’s that he’s at his best when his back is against the wall. There’s a new Romney in play now and a bit of adjustment is required to deal with Mitt the Lying Moderate.
Obama needs to get and stay in Romney’s face and remain there for the entire ninety minutes of that second debate. If he does, the first debate will be looked upon as nothing more than a minor bump on the road to a November win.
