Being a conservative, I always like to turn to the mass media channels to "listen" to the descriptions they paint to form an argument. One thing was apparent last night before all the hatchet fact checkers and pollsters have their say. The anchors from NBC, CBS, and even George Stephapartisan from ABC said Obama did not have a strong debate. Not surprising. Obama spent the first 15 minutes with pre-canned campaign soundbites about a $5 Trillion Romney tax cut, only to turn around at every corner and say he didn't have any specifics about Romney's plan. Epic fail on team Obama's part. So, like everything else that's sprung forth from the left, where are you getting your information and who are you trying to convince? Obviously, only those who don't know how to read a financial statement. But for me, and as you stated, the debate was won and lost on one aspect. Obama was scribbling like a mad man trying to prepare a framed response for everything, and rarely looking at Romney, while Romney spent 90% of the time staring the president right in the eye and had his game plan ready to attack. I think I only counted 4 times where Romney even jotted "anything" down. But you can see where the arrogance is lost on Obama without his teleprompters. I'm sure his crack team of preparers highlighted this during the 3 day sequester, but Obama, to my recollection, only started one reply beginning a sentence with the word "Look..." I'll have to go through the transcripts to see if I missed any more, but that form of reply has become the trademark sign of Obama's arrogance throughout his presidency that just makes my teeth grind. And since that point, everyone in the mainstream media is seems has copied that mannerism, and to anyone who considers themselves intellectual, it's a complete turn off.
Chris Matthew's meltdown, making Obama's arguments for him!!!
