      sports analogies because I don't think they really work.  I didn't suggest that Lehrer -- the "ref" -- was meant to save Obama.  I just expected him to be a decent moderator in this particular format.  He was not.

      Unlike many here -- I wasn't looking for a knock out punch if one wants to use that metaphor.  I wanted clarity of message and for the President to use phrases in response like:  "that is false," or "here are the actual facts."  He didn't -- but I'm not going to spend the rest of the day and or week bemoaning the fact.  I'd rather his attention be on Syria and Turkey.
