they don't want to admit that he's president and doesn't have two weeks to spend on debate prep like Romney did.


He has time for golf, time for campaign appearances, time for fund raisers but no time to prepare?

BS

He shouldn't even need as much time to prepare he has been Presidnet for 4 years and did the debate scene four years ago.

What he can't prepare for is the defense of his performance the past four years.

Obama does have a legitimate excuse for not doing well, but for some reason they don't want to admit that he's president and doesn't have two weeks to spend on debate prep like Romney did.

Incumbents have a history of getting their clocks cleaned in the first debate (eg. Carter 1980, Reagan 1984, W 2004), but I attribute that to complacency. Notice that Clinton had no problem handling Dole in 1996. They also have a lot of advantages (eg. Air Force One, the world's biggest megaphone, etc.) that the challenger doesn't have. If Obama thought his preparation time would be limited due to the demands of the Presidency, he should have started earlier rather than wait til the last minute to cram like a college student pulling all-nighters.

This debate was about domestic issues. Obama had two choices:
- get his arse handed to him OR
- lie his arse off

So the altitude was literally sucking the life out of him.

I don't know about that. Reagan smoked the political vet Mondale in the debate in 84.

Are you kidding? In the first debate back in 1984, Mondale cleaned Reagan's clock. The only incumbent that won the first debate in recent memory is Clinton in 1996.

I believe there were two. Reagan made a comeback in the second debate.
