A Debate Rout of Herculean Proportions

"It's particularly damaging to Obama that he was taken down in the very area in which he and his devotees claim he excels the most: rhetoric." His entire image is built on lies and fabrications. Barack Obama is not a skilled orator. He can't survive without a script. His predecessor (Yes, I'm talking about George W. Bush) was a better orator and debater than Obama. Bush was so-so in scripted speeches, but was much better off the cuff. Obama relies on the script, because he relies so much on his advisorsto feed him information. When he has to do it on his own, he either says something ignorant (like not knowing the national debt) or betrays his disdain for all those who are beneath him (the bowling comment).

As President he cannot vote present, lessening the impact of rhetoric.

Don't forget about not knowing how many states there are.

What I see Obama doing is trying to think and failing. He is a semi-retard.

His IQ is OK. Anyone would look stupid trying to justify the wreckage of socialism.
I am elated to report to you something you surely already know: Mitt Romney trounced President Obama in their first debate. The rout was so decisive that even the liberal media cannot spin it the other way.

There is no need to grade this on a curve. Romney did very well in absolute, not relative, terms. He didn't just do well compared with Obama's poor performance; he really shone, in every category. He proved himself to be very knowledgeable on policy and business, quick on his feet and able to deliver zingers as graciously as possible under the circumstances.
