The ObaMessiah is a VERY well-packaged, clandestine, teleprompted myth! He CLEARLY cannot deal with an able challenger without Plouffe or Axelrod feeding him answers. Note how he has stepped in it when he has "gone rogue" off the teleprompter (the Cambridge police acted STUPIDLY!)! They even prompt his answers to RARE, controlled press questions! Notice how he calls out specific reporters even if he does not see them to call on them.
Jim Lehrer was effective in one area as the moderator of the first Presidential Debate of 2012. That is, he convinced the audience to not be a factor by remaining generally quiet. While he was not very effective in controlling the candidates, Lehrer’s style seemed to work out well in facilitating his primary goal of drawing out ideological contrasts.
