2 thoughts on “It Ain’t All Bad: Thoughts on the Obama-Romney First Presidential Debate (Oct. 3, 2012)

  1. Non-plussed……my exact word when trying to analyze Obama’s conduct. He was taken completely off track by Romney’s reversals. How do you debate someone you so want to call a “liar”! I saw Obama just “retreat”, but not out of weakness. He was just too non-plussed to engage!

    • Thanks for your thoughts.

      Upon reviewing the first debate in my mind, and allowing for other factors contributing to Obama’s barely-there debate performance, I have increasingly concluded that the tipping point where Obama lost the debate was his total inability to debate the equivalent of oratorical Silly Putty: No matter how he tried to nail it, it just dripped off the wall.
