"President Barack Obama said in an interview broadcast on Wednesday that he was "just too polite" in his first debate with Mitt Romney—a new explanation for the incumbent's widely panned performance in that prime-time political bout."
This is how the article on yahoo.com starts out. Also during a Tom Joyner Interview, Tom asked about the debate, "What happened" and The president responded, "I think it's fair to say I was just too polite." and speaking on the upcoming debates on 10/16 and 10/22 he added, "We're going to take it to him."
Mr President, Sir..With all due respect..Please stop talking so much. You can be sure that Romney is reading your every words and MAY use them against you and even worse you are telling him your game plan for the debate.
Mr Obama is spending way too much time trying to 'Win The Debate", when in actuality, He should focus on and stick with, #1. Being himself, #2. Stick with the issues of the people and #3. Stop admiting to ANY implied defeat or rhetoric about winning and losing the debate...Lets focus on the BIG picture and talk about the issue that will WIN THE 2012 PRESIDENTIAL RACE !!
SOAR OPINION: Mr Romney has provided enough rope to hang himself with his secret slurs and outrageous statements. President Obama must stop responding to EVERY criticism and let it go. Instead of openly talking about being tougher in the next debate, it should simply be implied that you are ready for the upcoming debates and will be prepared!!
Talking about being tough is no comparison to just showing up, kicking butt and moving on quietly.
Please, Mr President....Stop living this campaign as a First responder and run it as the leader that you are! Stand on your record, stand on 'being you". Be yourself, not the image folk wanna see
As you have said, Romney wants the office that you ALREADY possess!
27 Year old Sarah Jones was accused of having sex with a Student while she was a teacher at a Northern Kentucky School.
ABC news reports: "Judge Patricia Summe granted prosecutors' recommendation to sentence Jones to five years of diversion but no jail time, and she won't have to register as a sex offender."
if this had been a Male having sex with a female do you think the outcome would be the same as we see here - NO JAIL TIME, DOES NOT HAVE TO REGISTER AS A SEX OFFENDER"?
Do you think the justice system is blind when it comes to these sex cases involving minors when the accused is a female?
SOAR QUESTION: The accused pleads guilty, THEN avoids jail time AND does NOT have to register as a sex offender...
Is this fair?
The BIG debate...Fits of all lets review a few comments from the CNN blog in reference to the debate:
1. RoscoeC writes: Romney seizes the story? What nonsense. Is this all it takes to "win" a debate?
Don't let your opponent get a word in. Tell lies, and when your opponent challenges your lie, tell another one? Romney acted like a thug on steroids.
This wasn't a debate. It was a one-sided yelling match from an irrational, lying lout.
2. JoeDProactiv writes: Romney definitely "won" the 1st debate. Especially on "tone."
His duplication of his GOP debate performance strategy [disrespecting the rules/ interrupting his adversaries and impinging on their time/running roughshod over the moderator] shouldn't be tolerated- it detracts from clear communication & is pretty obviously planned.
His pushing around of Lehrer is a confirmation that Lehrer is past it [for debate moderation]..
and, in a strange way, can be seen as a cypher for Romney/Ryan's lack of respect for seniors in general. After all- he can follow any path/policy he wants & what can they do to him.
3. Dejavu65 writes: Thats funny I always said Romney is a slick fast talking car salesman no wonder he wants to buy a Chinese factory and continue to outsource jobs!...Glad I work in the medical field!
4. angrymobvoter writes: The die hard Obama supporters are crying because Romney beat Obama at his own game. Obama has been the worst President in at least a generation. Obama cannot use statistics because the statistics prove conclusively how Obama has failed the American people. Unemployment remains high, gas prices have more than doubled, the national debt is at unsustainable levels, and Obama is just offering more of his divisive policies that have failed.
Yes we all saw the gun down in Denver or WAS it a gundown?
The Major polls crown Romney "King" of the debate but at what costs?
Do we win debates by speaking over your moderator? By refusing to acknowledge the time or subject? Is feisty behavior what America wants or do we want mature debates centered on issues as presented?
People are saying "President Obama gotta fire back, get tough", etc etc etc..But WHY?
Does the office of President rely on these type of theatrics? Are we supposed to choose a candidate based on how many times you can butt in or effectively disregard the moderator?
I would feel better if Obama just was himself!
He could have returned with some of the flip flop issues, the 47% statement etc.....But he choose not too.
So am I to understand that Obama HAD to change HIS debate style to win the debate and election? Who decides what pace a debate is set? The aggressor?
Who really won the debate?
I would say that the person who can handle him self under pressure and still conform to the rules and procedures of the debate.
The person who was able to maintain the proper demeanor and respect for the moderator should get a lot of points in MY boo
Do we believe Romney when He is behind closed doors and says that He says He's NOT concerned about 47%
Or do we believe Romney when he's animated and on LIVE TV saying he's concerned about EVERYBODY?
Stop putting down your president because HE chose the higher road. Leave the theatrics in the movie theaters and leave presidential debates in controlled, moderated environments.
After all, Aren't we told in grade school to respect authority? If the President of the United States choose to respect the authority of the moderator...Why do we rebuke him for it?
Lets step back take a step back take a deep breath and come to our senses.
Don't get it twisted, This was an ALI vs Frazier fight...It was a debate to help us decide our votes for the next President of the United States
