Okay so maybe I am the 12,324th person to say that. BUT I LOVE IT! What a time for Romney to come out swinging! And somehow, he was still gracious about it.
When the debate was over, President Obama greeted Michelle as she came up onstage and I swear she looked to me like she was about to throw up. She had to know how bad it was. (Think she was still proud of her country?)
But instead of writing about how wonderful the debate was (and it really really was) - what struck me was the comparison between Obama last night - and Obama today. Next to someone who really understands the economy, he was hanging onto his talking points by his finger nails, repeating the same untrue figures over and over again and trying to sound intelligent while not making sense.
One of my biggest problems with the Obama campaign is that it is all smoke and mirrors, no substance and full of flat out lies. It was a joy to see the POTUS silenced because someone dared to point out that he was not telling the truth.
Today - Obama went right back to the campaign trail where he feels most comfortable with the swooning crowds, dribbling sarcasm out of one side of his mouth and condescension out of the other. He is back to doing what Mitt said his boys have done - saying an untruth over and over again in hopes that people will believe it if he says it enough. It's a little frightening to realize that the man who holds our great country in his hands right now, is horribly delusional.
He needs to go. The suit is totally empty.
