    debate, the media would have declared Mitt the winner. He was applauded for standing up to the president and lying his ass off for 90 minutes. Even MSNBC declared that "presidential" somehow. Had he been less aggressive, the media would have declared that he possessed the necessary calmness and perspective for the presidency. Had Obama been more aggressive, they would have declared him an angry black man. Obama couldn't win in the first debate. It's because the media wants a race. And they have it now. Obama brought the style and the substance in the next two debates, but  apparently that's not enough.
