  •  It wasn't Obama's debate performance (0+ / 0-)

    Sorry, but in retrospect...

    There was maybe ten percent of Republicans who didn't think they could tolerate Romney. Then they saw this patriarchal white guy on the screen, and said..."Well, OK." Romney's advisors were right in the sense that they knew he could etch o sketch and the bigots who just wanted an old white guy president would eventually believe anything. Romney smiled and lied and lied and smiled and they bought it because they wanted to.

    Obama wasn't charismatic. He wasn't snarky. He wasn't revolutionary. But he didn't say anything wrong or offensive or dumb.
