Romney has breathed some life into his nearly deceased campaign. There's no doubt about that. He has fired up his base and he's won back some of the punditry. He is no longer a dead candidate walking. So, I hope he sent President Obama a thank you this morning, because the only reason Romney won last night is because Obama didn't fight back.
Obama probably has a lot of reasons for not fighting back last night. By now we can all probably list them, because we were all wondering aloud last night why it happened. But whatever the reasons, the bottom line is, he has absolutely no reason to have a repeat performance in the next 2 debates.
Having seen Romney's debates there is no doubt in my mind that he is incapable of winning a debate with Obama if Obama actually decides to... oh, i don't know... try to win the debate. Which is why so many of us went to bed pissed at Obama last night.
I mean, yeah, we're not THAT pissed, because in EVERY OTHER way Obama is cleaning Romney's clock in this election. But Obama could have ended this election last night and he didn't. Clearly, it was a mistake. One that he'll have to make up for. Energy and money will have to be spent to make up for the loss last night. That really sucks.
Anyway. We got your back, Obama. Which is why you are feeling a lot of kicks from behind this morning.
