As I sat here watching the first presidential debate between President Obama and contender, Mit Romney, I had the distinct impression Obama was angrily thinking, 'I can't believe they took my damned prompter. He is kicking my ass!'
Obama levied lengthy-filibustering-inaccurate-charges at Romney, calling into question his stances on a variety of domestic issues.
After each mischaracterization by Obama, Romney delivered point-by-point retorts that, in most cases, went unrefuted. Obama was so thrashed by Romney that
at one point in the debate, the moderator seemed to attempt helping Obama answer a question.
Romney sounded prepared, well schooled, competent, and frankly, quite presidential.
Obama, on the other hand, seemed tired, defensive, nervous, and distant. It appeared to me that Obama was way out of his league.
