    rallying people to his cause and advocating for a soaring vision. Once he gets into the room, though, he seems disinterested in a rousing debate. He appears to hope that you'll pull out a scoreboard and keep track of who makes more accurate arguments that more people agree with. He ignores the fact that he's the one who has to tell people what the score is and he's the one who has to remind people which side they agree with and he has to point out that his opposition is being disingenuous.

    Within a minute of realizing Jim Lehrer wasn't going to moderate this debate, the President needed to wake up and take control of the discussion, dismantling the lies being used to attack him.
