    Party like it’s 1980!

    Bewildered and lost without his teleprompter, President Obama flailed all around the debate stage last night. He was stuttering, nervous and petulant. It was like he had been called in front of the principal after goofing around for four years and blowing off all his homework.

    Not since Jimmy Carter faced Ronald Reagan has the U.S. presidency been so embarrassingly represented in public. Actually, that’s an insult to Jimmy Carter.

    The split screen was most devastating. Mitt Romney spoke forthrightly, with carefully studied facts and details at the ready. He looked right at the president and accused him of being miles out of his depth.

    Mr. Obama? His eyes were glued to his lectern, looking guilty and angry and impatient with all the vagaries of Democracy. This debate was seriously chaffing him.

    The press over here are definitely treating it as a 'win' for Romney.

    The important thing is not how well you debate, nor even how well you govern--it's how many thrills you can send up people's legs. :thumbs:

    Oh, this was a bigger defeat than Reagan did to Carter. Obama was crushed last night.

    Obama has to have a cheering crowd, he has to be in control. Put him in there with a truly intelligent person without his teleprompter and it becomes immediately obvious he is a fake and a poser. That is what happened last night, and that is what will happen in the next debates as well, unless folks are allowed to cheer and applaud. If so, Obama has a chance, his crowd will at least make it appear he is winning.
