That was the story of the night; the American people had no idea what Obama was talking but understood Romney. From corning Obama on the true costs of Obamacare to the middle class and businesses and Obama’s failure to implement the Simpson-Bowles deficit reduction plan, which Obama commissioned, or work with Republicans in Congress, Romney made Obama look puny and partisan. At the same time, Romney finally seized his own narrative, with command of and passion for the issues.
A friend told me she felt bad for Obama last night because he looked worn down and weak standing next to Romney. Liberal political analysts mused maybe Obama held back because he didn’t want to really give it to Romney in the first debate. No, Obama failed in the Denver because his arrogance has made him believe he’s bigger than himself. Can you say President Romney?
