Debate between Obama and Romney revealed on purpose or not an Obama that showed itself before; scared, timid, and not himself or maybe his true self.
Instead of taking the fight to Romney and making a case to the American people that is already clear to them; Romney took the fight to him, as the Washington Post headline articulated it this morning.
There are three explanations to Obama’s performance yesterday:
1-He was overloaded by tips and advices from his staff, that he looked as he was on some sort of drugs.
2-His debates mate rehearsal spelled a curse on him, a joke somehow, but John Kerry, the former presidential nominee that lost to George w. Bush in 2004, is not like Mitt Romney , and if we go by this reason, obviously missed the trend that almost every American knows except for Obama and staff camp, it seems, which is that Romney’s vagueness on numbers and other issues all along the campaign, was his style so he can be fluid and waffle and switch, which exactly what he did yesterday. Nothing should have come new to the Obama’s campaign, Romney, based on record, is an open book, and he proved it yesterday.
*In a 1994′s debate with the late Senator Ted Kennedy, Romney with Kennedy was like Obama to Romney last night; shaky, tired, timid, and disoriented and waffling and changing positions to fit the moment. Kennedy said then what Obama should have said yesterday, It is the same style and it was a Romney’s stamp. Kennedy told Romney then that the problem is not that he has one choice but that he has multiple choices, that he keeps changing positions and sarcastically told the American people that even he, Romney, could vote for him, Kennedy, if the election to last longer. Kennedy went after that and won the race and kept his family long kept and held Massachusetts senate seat.
3-It was Obama that likes to lose the first round, likes to have his opponent appears the victor on the first round, like to look temporarily as the underdog, the underachiever. It happened with McCain in the 2008 first debate; after that Biden did well against Sarah Palin in the vice presidential debates and then Obama had a comeback against McCain and won the elections.
The second debate with Romney will for sure tell us which Obama, among the above Three Obamas, Obama will be…
The Kennedy -Romney debate of 1994.
