Reader comment on item: Reflections on the Second Presidential Candidates' Debate
in response to reader comment: Romney won on substance

I envy you the experience of being in an area that is not radically left well-to-do liberal hypocrites who live in a utopian bubble where they write articles about reducing the amount of children we should have to help with global warming, or excusing the rising auto thefts in our neighborhoods as justifiable because these people are just suffering with the economy...

As Charles Krauthammer noted, all Obama had to do for the last debate was show up, that was 80 % already (I am mangling someone's quote). He decreased expectations to such an extent that there was almost no way he wouldnt have won (who knows if it was orchestrated to gain momentum). I wouldnt put anything past this administration, the expert campaigners and ignoramuses of policy and leadership. They believe that campaigning is what a President does and all that matters is perception of the public. I do not know if Obama had planned that trap for Romney with the terror mention, he certainly seemed very satisfied with himself as it was happening, and it will leave a mark, no doubt.

Romney needs to hone himself on foreign policy and very clearly illustrate the bumbling of the administration, the cover ups, the blatant contradictions and show the American people what the press has not done. He has a very big task ahead and it is imperative that he succeed. If his third debate is anywhere near what the first two were (minus his awful whiffing of the Libyan 'terror' opportunity), we will be saluting a new President on Nov. 6.
