Obama Lost the Debate the Right Way
thedailybeast.com — As it stands, President Obama by no means holds a losing hand. He was on the verge of making this a breakout election, and if the race tightens because the president debated with integrity and allowed Romney to become more human, that strikes me as fair. There’s still plenty of time to call Romney on his whoppers. The PACs and super PACs will keep drilling the 47 percent theme. Romney landed no decisive blows. Instant analysis of Twitter didn’t indicate that voters were being swayed. The main topic of conversation, and the only big trend, was Big Bird. The progress that Obama has made over the last six months should be enough for him to win—and win the right way. The candidate who inspires hope, trust, compassion, and stability, and who outlines specific action steps to achieve his goals deserves to win.
