    This constant brooding going on 72 hours now is unhealthy. The first debate is over, the next one is over a week away, stop picking at a scab and let it heal. I can assure all concerned that the White House is taking the next debate very seriously and Obama is getting an earful of advice coming at him from all angles. I honestly did not have high expectations for the debate because I remembered Obama from 2007 and 2008. He's not a confrontational man. His debates with Mccain frankly weren't that great. I enjoyed Biden-Palin much more, and really look forward to his debate with Ryan. Take a look at him here

      But I'm not just going to pretend a tsunami of fear and mindless media regurgitation didn't just happen.

    •  Well, that's got to change. (0+ / 0-)

      The problem is that his people have made him so afraid of being the angry black man that they have neutered him.

      Let him be him. Let him be angry. That way the people will know he is on their side.

      It didn't look that way Wednesday night.

        is the pattern of his whole life, not just this campaign.

        people here who wanted him to be the angry black man in 2008 would have cost him the election.  fortunately Obama knew better.

        it's offensive to imply that the only choices for Obama are "angry black man" and "neutered".  If those were his only choices, there would be no way for him to win.  And so far one thing he has demonstrated over and over again is that he knows how to win.
