Our President showed wisdom and traits of a humble person. Good virtues to have in a leader.
For those of you who might be confused on last night’s debate….Obama clearly stated before the debate that his discussion would not be full of zingers.
“…Before the debate, Obama was trying to blunt Romney’s zings. “I know folks in the media are speculating already on who’s going to have the best zingers,” he said Sunday. “What I’m most concerned about is having a serious discussion.”
Obama’s mission was accomplished. Last night we witnessed Mitt Romney perform what he performed against Sen. John McCain in 2008. Back then, Romney was full of arrogance and zinger-filled rhetoric and it landed him nowhere. This is a serious time — war time, and we are better off without Osama Bin Laden when we spent millions and millions of dollars looking for him in the wrong country.
Prepare to be wow’ed in the last 2 debates. Again, Obama intended not to come back with zingers, and stated he was not going to fire back with “zingers” since the media was hyping up Romney’s “zinger” filled rhetoric.
In my view, Obama was feeling out Romney in Debate 1. Now Obama knows how large Romney’s ego is and that will be Romney’s downfall.
Now be looking for the DCCC to roll out their videos addressing the AARP audience. Obama needed to extract Romney quotes from the debate with regard to health care and how medicare/medicaid is a program the elderly needs. It was imperative for Obama to appear measured, and he did that. Obama doesn’t need to appear arrogant in order to win.
Now you will start seeing the facts will roll out with regard to Romney’s reversals, flip flops, and lies — because facts are stubborn things. I was glad Obama reminded Romney of his support of ObamaCare. Indeed Romney did support ObamaCare before he was against it.
I was also happy to see this story by a non-verbal expert — I happen to agree with his analysis.
