Even more importantly — particularly in what is considered a ‘Blue’ state, where not surprisingly significantly more Democrats watched the debate than Republicans — it was striking that 48% thought Romney was the clear winner.
That’s according to aKPIX-TV CBS 5 poll taken right after the debate, which found only 34% of Golden State debate watchers actually believed Obama won.Even better: the New York Times referred to his performance as "President Xanax."
What do you expect? Obama can't talk without a teleprompter, because he lacks a decent education and any intelligence. Beating McCain in the debate in 2008 wasn't much of a challenge. Here he came up against someone with considerable skill and intelligence, and splat! Even the left is admitting that their guy blew it. Amazing! The Lightworker isn't all that good!
I admit that debate skills aren't the only basis for deciding who should be President of the United States. Other skills matter, such as the ability to write and pass a budget. (Whoops! Failed that four years in a row now, even when two of those years involved Democratic majorities in both houses.) The ability to manage foreign policy competently. (Whoops!) The ability to enforce the laws fairly and impartially. (Whoops!) The ability to make progress on unemployment. (Beyond whoops!)
Is there anything Obama can point to as a success, besides passing Obamacare, a law that a majority of Americans want to see either repealed in full or repealed in part?
