Last night’s debate was kind of karmic as Mitt Romney did to President Obama what he did to John McCain in the 2008 Debates. Look presidential and calm while the other guy look agitated and defensive. Romney won not just on the facts, but also by being honest where Obama wasn’t. In the age of the internet you can’t tell whoppers and get away with it. You also need to have command of the facts. President Obama’s joke about horses and bayonets will haunt him since the military still uses both and horses were prominently used in Afghanistan.
In the end, Obama can’t run from his failed record as president and Romney drove it home over and over again. Watch Obama slide even more in the next two weeks. The desperation he showed last night was very telling. A incumbent shouldn’t be so agitated. They should look like the calm one.
Obama looked like a loser to most people. Romney looked like a winner. In many people’s minds, the decision on November 6 will be an easy one.
