Personally, I wanted Romney to hit Obama hard on the Benghazi lies and cover-up. He didn't.
I think Romney had a strategy last night, and probably decided to stick to it when he saw Obama's demeanor and heard his tone. That strategy? My opponent is going to implode so I'm going to stand out of the way and let him.
Here is one example:
“But I think Governor Romney maybe hasn’t spent enough time looking at how our military works. You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.”
It was only after the debate when Fox News revealed that a Marine had tweeted that Marines still use bayonets. And horses? Well thanks to Debra Burlingame of 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America, the Special Ops team who led off the invasion of Afghansitan used horses. There's a monument that honors them.
Obama tone last night was one of arrogance and contempt for Mitt Romney, you could see it on his face as well. Very unpresidential. Made me wonder if Mark Halperin might be brought back to Morning Joe this morning to repeat the following:
You could tell by the reaction of the Obama cheerleaders at MSNBC that he lost. Even the way he and Michelle greeted each other post debate. They know it is only two weeks away from the pink slip being sent to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave by the American people.
