    debate in the way you describe it: "as badly as any candidate ever has in the history of debates." And also: "We were totally justified in being demoralized by that performance."

    A statement I totally disagree with.... But, in anycase, after making such a wild statement, you cannot now reasonably claim that the 39% of folk who felt Romney to be the winner in the last debate are deluded.

    You see.... No debate, or "show biz presentation" in my humble opinion, justifies being demoralized in terms of this President, after all he has done for us these 3 plus years. President Obama has been, before the debate and after the debate, the best choice in our current state of affairs to make a real difference in our lives.

    We did not need a debate to tell us that. Most have been fired up before the debate and remained fired up after the debate.

    It was Bruce Springsteen who said about the President yesterday:

    Right now, there is a fight going on to help make this a fairer and more equitable nation. For me, President Obama is our best choice to get us and keep us moving in the right direction. Right now, we need a President who has a vision that includes all of our citizens, not just some, whether they are our devastated poor, our pressured middle class, and yes, the wealthy too; whether they are male or female, black, white, brown, or yellow, straight or gay, civilian or military.

    I don't think Bruce Springteen was so demoralized after the President's debate....

      how quickly a lot of people were CAUTERIZING President Obama, who almost never has an off night, because he had an off night.  That's all. An off night.  As others have said, he wasn't bad, he just wasn't as great as usual, and that translates into




      because guess what?  Because Barack Obama is a black man and he does to do everything twice as well as anybody, he has to have NO OFF NIGHTS NEVER or we are just ready to throw him off the bridge.  Obama has to be twice as good as his white opponent just to tie.  

      Still enjoying my stimulus package.
