Van Jones: Romney Managed to 'Out-Obama Obama'

When even your Left-as-can-be former green jobs czar thinks you lost...you lost. Mitt Romney delivered the debate of his life last night, and this telling soundbite from Van Jones illustrates why: Romney did a better of job connecting with, and dare we suggest, empathizing with, his audience.

President Obama’s former environmental jobs czar believes his former boss lost the debate.

Van Jones, President Obama’s former special adviser for green jobs, said on CNN that the president was not ready for Wednesday night’s debate against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

“I think he took Romney too lightly. I think he did not expect Romney to throw that kind of heat,” Jones explained.

Jones added: “Romney was able to ‘out-Obama’ Obama. On the connection piece, on the authenticity piece, on the being able to tell the story.”

Jones said Obama’s game-plan set him up for failure.

Well, that's one way of putting it. Obama looked bored and petulant, and failed to produce any meaningful data on why his plan for America is better than his Republican challenger's. Romney, meanwhile, was engaged, used more anecdotal evidence, and consistently called out the president's poor record. Heck, Romney even won among people with the sound turned down! Out-Obama'd Obama, indeed.
