I’ve grown tired of the “Obama blew it” meme about the debate. This idea comes from 2 places: 1) Ultra-liberal policies are so awesome that any self-respecting college grad should be able to defend them; and b) by not showing up, Obama sealed Romney’s victory. The facts are otherwise. Obama was lackluster and mediocre, I agree — but then, he pretty much always is. A better way to look at this debate is: Romney blew away Obama by being the superior candidate, making better arguments, having a superior philosophy. There wasn’t just a loser in this debate. There was a winner.
If Obama thinks he’s going to turn the tables by being a colossal jerk in the next debate, well….I certainly hope that’s what he’s thinking, and I do believe he is.
