The Chair got knocked out last night by Mitt Romney
All I can say after watching the first presidential debate between Romney and Obama last night is "wow". Momentum in a campaign can change on a dime. I remember when Herman Cain was at the top of the polls during the GOP primaries. The momentum was clearly on his side. He made one mistake though. He accepted an invitation to a Jackson- Douglas style debate from Newt Gingrich. Even though it was a friendly debate, Newt completely dominated the debate. From that point forward Newt started to surge in the polls at Cain's expense. Last night was a terrible night for Barack Obama and a potential momentum changer. It's not just me saying this. Even Obama's most die hard loyalists were horrified at how poor Obama did and wonders what's next going forward.
James Carville said on CNN last night that "Mitt Romney brought a CHAINSAW to the debate".
The Washington Compost had to give the debate to Romney.
Liberal columnist Andrew Sullivan over at the Daily Beast said while blogging the debate live that "It was a disaster for Obama.
Obama's bleached blond pom pom waving cheer leader Chris Matthews over at MSNBC was beside him wondering "What was going on".
No talent comedian and brainy smurf pseudo intellectual Obama supporter Bill Maher tweeted after the debate "Obama Needs a Teleprompter"
I don't know why those on the left and even some on the right were so shocked at how good Romney did and how bad Obama was. Romney had to contend with some very good and hungry candidates less then a year ago in the GOP presidential primaries. Obama faced John McCain in the presidential debates, but that's not saying much. is it? Four years ago, the only somewhat real competition Obama ever faced was Hillary Clinton. Obama has never debated a strong debater in his life. Now compound that with him not having any facts on his side to either defend his record nor promote it, it's easy to see how last night happened. So many people on the left from the media, his supporters and political pundits hyped Obama to almost intellectual god like status, but the hype was based on nothing. The end result showed itself last night against Governor Romney.
