WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — President Obama’s former environmental jobs czar believes his former boss lost the debate.
Van Jones, President Obama’s former special adviser for green jobs, said on CNN that the president was not ready for Wednesday night’s debate against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
“I think he took Romney too lightly. I think he did not expect Romney to throw that kind of heat,” Jones explained....

"Tonight wasn't an MSNBC debate tonight, was it?" Chris Matthews said after the first Obama-Romney presidential debate concluded on Wednesday night.
"I don't know what he was doing out there. He had his head down, he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. Romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. He had a plan, he was going to dominate the time, he was going to be aggressive, he was going to push the moderator around, which he did effectively, he was going to relish the evening, enjoying it," Matthews said.
"Here's my question for Obama: I know he likes saying he doesn't watch cable television but maybe he should start. Maybe he should start. I don't know how he let Romney get away with the crap he throughout tonight about Social Security," Matthews complained.....

The question that we should be asking is...
What is weighing so heavy on Obama's mind that it cause him to fumble over his own words? Is there something going on that we should be aware of? ... Of course there is. But what is it?
This debate is obviously mute, and the winner of this election was decided long ago, but Obama is so distracted that he isn't even putting on the usual show. If anything, Obama can give a motivating speech filled with (false? maybe, maybe not) hope and what have you, but this isn't his night.
I wonder what is world changing decision he is about to make.

And that plastic among other products come from oil that Obama wants to penalize.
Not a good thing for the economy since thousands of products are made from petrochemicals and delivered to market via oil, as well as other transportation industries including air travel.edit on 4-10-2012 by neo96 because: (no reason given)

More likely Plouffe, Jarret, or Axelrod. Those are the only people he listens to anyway. Besides Putin that is.edit on 4-10-2012 by ThirdEyeofHorus because: (no reason given)
