Charles Hurt: 'Obama the debater: Making Jimmy Carter look awesome'Topics: Political News and commentaries
Charles Hurt manages to perfectly encapsulate the performance of the candidates in last night's debate: "Not since Jimmy Carter faced Ronald Reagan has the U.S. presidency been so embarrassingly represented in public. Actually, that's an insult to Jimmy Carter":
[...] The split screen was most devastating. Mitt Romney spoke forthrightly, with carefully studied facts and details at the ready. He looked right at the president and accused him of being miles out of his depth.Read the whole thing.
Mr. Obama? His eyes were glued to his lectern, looking guilty and angry and impatient with all the vagaries of Democracy. This debate was seriously chafing him.
What exactly was Mr. Obama's strategy here? Did he figure with so many people unemployed in this abomination of an economy he should go for the sympathy vote? Like voters could relate to a guy who is just scared pantsless that he is about to lose his job?
In the middle of the blood-letting segment about jobs, Mr. Romney said good-naturedly: "This is fun."
[...] But Mr. Romney was absolutely on fire Wednesday night. He had command of countless specifics from voters and business owners from all across country.
He explained complex issues clearly, concisely and with good humor. He was not angry. But he was direct and pointed.
Like a prosecutor in court, Mr. Romney went after Mr. Obama's record and eviscerated him about the terrible economy and Mr. Obama's belief in "trickle down government." ...
Almost as good as Hurt's piece is at describing the candidate/s performance last night is this video of MSNBC's Obama-adoring Mika Brzezinski being angry, brooding, sick to her stomach over Obama's failed debate performance (h/t - Jim Hoft):
