    It took me back to the frustrating days of not so long ago, when an overabundance of caution and unwillingness to use the bully pulpit proved disastrous. I thought the stronger rhetoric of the campaign season meant that somebody had finally learned that lesson, but apparently not.
    1.  Obama's caution and unwillingness to be tough with the Repubs (before, of course, re-e-lec-tion time) in my opinion was an important factor in the 2010 elections and may foreshadow what could happen in this one.

    2.  Obama's debate performance, which was a microcosm of his failure in #1 and is in stark contrast to how he behaves on the stump vis-a-vis Romney, may just signal that he averse of incapable of face-to-face confrontation.  If so, then he's in deep shit going forward with debates.

    •  He did fine confronting McCain (0+ / 0-)

      Granted, McCain isn't quite the intimidating bully that Romney is.
