I wouldn't go as far as saying Obama threw the debate, but I certainly believe it was the Democrat strategy to let Romney go off the hinge and not
only hope to catch him in his lies and flip flopping to use in the weeks to come, but also set Romney up so he doesn't really have anywhere to go from
here. Whether it's politics, or sports, or whatever, when you come out real hot like that it's hard to keep the momentum going.
I could totally see Romney keeping the strong debating going but it will be tough for him, I think, to keep up the high octane rhetoric, especially
since a lot of it seemed to be contrary to what he has been saying thus far on the campaign trail. As far as fact checking goes, neither of them were
very honest last night. Not surprising. But I don't think Obama threw the thing, just set the bar quite low. And I'm by no means making excuses for
either of them because I despise them both and have since before 2008.
Obama's campaign has already released an ad with clips from the debate criticizing Romney, they must have worked on it all night. I'm not sure if that
would be damage control or they had that planned all along and got what they were waiting for. I guess it depends on what news network you are on.
I'm just excited to see how the rest of it turns out. I've stated this on other threads, but I've thought since 08 that Romney would be the guy to
lose to Obama this time around - but I really will not be surprised if Romney wins. I would rather have Romney win then Obama, because I cannot wait
to see what people come up with to try and defend him when nothing changes in Washington and our country slips further into chaos. It's going to
happen, neither of them have touched on any issue that will actually fix what ails this country. We are headed for troubled times, no matter who sits
in the Oval Office.
Anywho, still voting for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein come Nov 6.
