Here's my take on the debate and Obama's poor performance:
You know all of those polls that show Obama in the lead? They are all shams. Obama knows the real numbers, and they are not good for him. The man is not used to not being number one, and he hates it. Absolutely hates it. So, when he went into the debate, he knew it wasn't going to be good for his numbers, and he just shut down. He was a man admitting defeat. Beaten. He didn't want to be there, he really doesn't want to be President anymore, because the thrill is gone and everything is not as shiny and new and FUN as it used to be.
And what is worse is he has all of this pressure on him from his campaign, his supporters and his wife to be the big winner again. The man is not a 'get into the trenches and fight for each yard of gain' type of guy. He wants everything to be easy. He wants everyone to kowtow to him. He wants everyone to love him and just follow his lead. When he faces sincere opposition he folds. And that is what we saw last Wednesday night - a man who has folded and is just waiting for the end to come so he can continue on with what he wants to do. Something fun. Something easy. Not this.
This is just another reason to vote for Romney - is Obama the type of person you want to go head-to-head with the likes of Putin, the muslim brotherhood, and the other evil dictators of the world? He is just a cheap suit and will fold like one. Romney showed us strength and leadership. That is NOT what we have had for the past four years.
BTW: Thanks to Clint Eastwood for his brilliant speech at the RNC Convention and for putting the 'empty chair = Obama' image in the American lexicon. Anyone that thinks Mr. Eastwood is just a rambling old man is clueless.
