The Root (Black website) Slams Obama's Debate Performance Too



Here's an excerpt:
quote:

There were many other political paths the president could have pursued during Wednesday's debate. He could have discussed the unemployment crisis in the inner cities. Or union rights. Or tax returns. He should have brought up the secretly recorded "47 percent" videotape with Romney writing off nearly half of the American voting public. He should have brought up Romney's tax returns. And he should have brought up Bain Capital.

Obama didn't. The president left all those talking points in Chicago in the Prudential Building, where all his campaign strategies are cooked up with those issues as the main ingredients. He didn't even knock down or assertively point out any of Romney's misspeaks -- such as the charge that Obama has cut $716 billion from Medicare -- or redirections -- such as Romney now suddenly bragging about his health care bill in Massachusetts.

So while Romney got a pass, the president got a butt whipping. Unless you are an Obama hater, it was not a sight to behold. It was like watching a real-life mugging in slow motion. And in the process of pummeling the president, Romney gave GOP down-ticket candidates new hope as well.

It wasn't supposed to go that way. All things were unequal until Wednesday's debate, when Romney was finally able make it about the economy -- and to do it his way.

They forgot about the one compelling issue all Americans are asking about.... Ann Romney's horse.

Its obvious the people at The Root are well informed and looking for solutions from their candidates.
