I think you misunderstand.<quoted text>
Obama minions can't accept the reality of his dismal debate performance and fabricate fantastic explanations.
It's illogical that Obama would need to 'hold back' or hesitate to 'counter' Romney during the debate. "That first debate was drawing Romney in to take a pawn and think he was winning the chess game." To what end? Yours is a gasping, comedic, pathetic excuse for a poor performance.
How'd that 'strategy' work out for him? He managed to turn a polling lead into a possible lost second term.
Apparently his debate advisers are the same people advising him on economic, unemployment and foreign affairs policies.
I agree with the consensus Obama didn't win the first debate. But I noticed a lot of times where Obama was smiling while he was looking down.
And the sad thing is, Romney still came off looking like an ass. Rude, Crude and "But,but,but that's not my policy position even if it's on my website" sounds quite Presidential.
And Romney got chewed up in the next two debates.
This latest one, I didn't think someone could sweat through the layer cakes of TV makeup. My bad.
