No you moron, this isn't a personality pageant, why did Romney win the debate?
A. couldn't stand on his own accomplishments because things are still bad. He can't tout Obamacare because a LOT of people do not like Obamacare. When the supreme court decided that Obamacare's fine could only stand as a tax, the Supreme Court's approval rating took a nosedive.
B. couldn't bring up Romney's gaffes without Romney countering with Obama's even worse gaffes. 47%? meh, that's nothing compared to many of Obama's gaffes,
C. Couldn't blame Bush.
D. Couldn't stand on the economy. it's still in the tank and unemployment since February 2009 has only dropped by 0.3% why Feb 2009? well he began his presidency on January 19, 2009
E. Couldn't say he would stay the course.
D. Couldn't get the questions ahead of time in order to prepare answers. (maybe they'll slip them to him for the next 2 debates... I half expect them to.)
F. He can't brag that he didn't tax middle or lower class people when he did... with Obamacare. the individual mandate fine can only stand as a tax and he's not about to let his legacy die.
The interesting part is that there doesn't seem to be a single non leftist moderator in the debates. surely that has to be to Obama's advantage... then again, without handing Obama the questions to be asked beforehand, it's kind of hard to give him too much of an advantage... Which I'm surprised hasn't happened. Maybe it will. Perhaps the first debate was given to Romney as a way of saying "remember the first debate? Obama simply wasn't prepared."
I fully expect Obama perform FAR better, almost flawlessly as the next 2 debates... almost as if he already knew the questions to be asked.
or maybe not. we'll see.
