Presidents often struggle in first debates

Oct 2, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: USA Today

When President Obama steps onto the debate stage Wednesday night in Denver, he'll seek to avoid what might be called "incumbents opening debate syndrome." Presidents seeking re-election have often struggled in their first debates: Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush.

After Obama's performance, can you understand why he don't meet with world leaders.........they can't stop laughing. Why can't the president talk naturally without a teleprompter. Being a communicator is in his job discription and says he should know and be able to discuss matters pertaining to his performance and his duties. He should also be able to articulate his plans and solutions.........Romney did, and looked Presidential, Obama didn't. Have you seen the DNL skit....pretty well sums it up.

Strugle? It was worse than that.

Obama seemed to change physically during the debate. He looked like the Grinch at times.

Sorry, I forgot I was dealing with a ignorant bot. You do know that each time we change presidents, that they don't have to follow the one that just left........even though Obama did quite a bit.

My name is Le Jimbo--I do not work---I live in my parents basement---and I hate the USA for electing a black president. Every day of my life I sit in my parents basement and make ignorant comments on TOPIX. I have made 76,534 comments on Topix in the last 3 1/2 years which comes out to about 60 post per day. I average several post per hour and I never leave my seat. For a matter of fact, my mom empties my pee bottle once a day and brings me a bag Cheetos every two hours. I watch faux news constantly and touch myself every time I hear rush limbaugh's voice. No, I am not weird I am a typical tea party piece of crap! If you are like me please vote for romney/ryan

Romney didn't struggle. He knew what he wanted to say, and said it. The next Debate is about foreign policy. All Obama has done is kill binLaden in the middle of the night, a pitiful, sick old man. He decided the war was over after that, until we were attacked again in Libya on 9-11 where his friends, the Muslim brotherhood, tortured, sodomized, and murdered our Ambassador, and dragged his body through the street singing victory songs. They are filthy savages, and Obama is giving them $450,000,000. taxpayer hard earned money. Remember that when you go to vote November 6.

Obama could have totally iced Romney when he said "there was a tax credit for big business to move jobs overseas." When Romney said "there's no loop hole like that! "
Obama could have just said " only you would know that."
I'm sure Romney would have unravelled at that point.
Opportunity missed.:(
Lol, that's weak. Sounds like you wanted Obama to grasp at straws rather than look down at the podium wishing he had a teleprompter or just looking pissed that the gig is up.

From what Obama looked like at the debate can you imagine him going up against a enemy foreign leader?

What amazes me is that Obama kept referring to a 5+trillion dollar tax cut for the rich even after Romney blatantly stated that was not in his tax plan. It was like Obama banked on that point, and once Romney debunked it from the get go, he had nothing else.
