Who do we want to follow? A "professor" or a "bully"....a "community organizer" or a "corporate raider"?

I believe we are in serious trouble already. But to have Romney's poll numbers to go  up after the first debate is quite alarming. People seem to be ignoring the 27 Romney lies (I think that is what Thom Hartman said). Why are people impressed with a privledged white bully? Are there that many looking for a strong daddy figure , which  always acts a bit arrogant and/or abusive? Why are people attracted to arrogant bullies? so what if Obama was quiet and somewhat circumspect?  So what if Obama takes the intellectual path. That is what I would expect in a person that is qualified as President. I want my president to be reserved and thoughtful. I did not consider Obama's first debate a failure--just an exchange of ideas with someone (Obama)  that tries to look at the big picture. I want someone like Gandi not John Wayne. I want as much thought as action from my Pres.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
