Thousands of President Obama supporters turned out in in Madison, Wisc., for a rally following Wednesday night’s debate in Denver. The mood was somber, to say the least, as they waited to enter Bascom Mall at the University of Wisconsin Thursday afternoon. University of Wisconsin students and fellow Wisconsinites had mixed reviews on the president's performance.
I talked to supporters of the president who had watched the debate, asking how they thought the president did. One after the other said they were left unimpressed and “not inspired,” seemingly depressed and lethargic in their continuing support of the president.
More than half the people I asked, who thought the president could have done better, said “it wasn’t fair” that President Obama was not allowed to use his teleprompter in the debate. ...............
U W Madison Students: 'Unfair' That Obama Couldn't Use Teleprompter in Debate
This is alarming to say the least.
It seems the best defense of Obama was that Obama couldn't use a teleprompter ?

Al Gore said it's the altitude! I can't believe how many people came up with "excuses" that Obama did badly. :shk: He lost the debate. People should just say that to themselves over and over until they feel more comfortable with it. Perhaps some calming tea would help them accept the truth.
To be fair, most people expected him to whoop up on Romney, so both camps, right and left, were surprised. But somebody has to lose. This time it was Obama. Romney was CLEARLY prepared to debate and I thought he did a really good job.
I have my own theory about why Obama lost, but it wasn't because there was no teleprompter and it wasn't because of the altitude, Al! Jesus! I would be embarrassed if I were him.
