All right the debate was like a pair of sleeping campers.
Rodney did great concerning it was two against line and it was hilarious watching -- in fact check Mitt.
And get it wrong you finally get the that maybe the most embarrassing journalism since Al Baldwin debuted at the Huffington Post.
But is amazing how accurate the headlines touting Obama's comeback turned out to beat especially since they were written a week ago.
So -- the media right to say he won what here's their proof.
Obama didn't -- stress he didn't shoot an audience member in the face he didn't strangle it it didn't pledges allegiance to Satan.
Meaning he did better.
-- two weeks ago which is like saying New Orleans has improved since post-Katrina.
Back is there's no way he could do worse and there's no way the media wouldn't give him a gold star.
A college mediate doping it's like blood doping except they have a bomb in their veins.
So -- put his tough -- based on last night -- when he pulls out for Republicans.
But puts away when Hugo Chavez shows up for -- -- -- -- followed -- lead which is like that and following Robin.
But despite his mimicking of the boy blunder it still felt forced confrontation is not Obama's strong suit.
That's why we have -- But while the media tries to convince itself that their guy -- ask yourself to the families of the four dead from Libya have answers.
The media spent half as much time asking that instead of cheering president -- the answer might be yes.
-- you surprised.
That media said he wind I mean it was like that there was a put a poisonous.
Huge smelly gust of wind across America -- that was a sigh of relief from the left.
They had to say yes -- -- -- point he couldn't have done much worse than he did the last yeah debate what I thought was interesting is every time you knew he was in trouble.
You could tell yeah because one he either looked at the moderator like he did with Jim Blair almost saying help me help me candy help me -- fact check him do something.
Or he physically got out of his seat to trying quiet Romney down but I think the thing that appalled me the most is in the two issues where Americans died.
The president did not answer the question he didn't even address fast and furious and he didn't give us a straight answer on Libya and that's five Americans dead -- But -- -- ask -- this weird dichotomy CBS gave it to Obama.
You give it to Obama CNN gave it to Obama however when you look at the issues.
Like the economy health care taxes deficit leadership.
Romney wins on the issues but it's -- -- -- what brought me.
It's always something that.
In -- situation like we're in now.
Any plausible Republican should be ahead by seven or eight point.
The reason that it's tough to beat an incumbent president -- always has been if you have to have somebody take his place.
When Mitt Romney went through that litany of problems the United States faces everybody you know already heard that before what he did not come up with is a single single.
Answer to what he was gonna do about it.
And went -- I think the best moment with that whole thing was when Obama said you don't plan proposed -- on for five and accurate we -- -- -- during that -- it was Ronnie -- was -- it I think as a good moments.
But I thought -- did Barack Obama came back the real Barack Obama and I think he had him on the defense all night long.
That's -- doing poorly.
Well -- -- I came back and then you see in all of those key areas that mattered that you are gonna decide to vote on.
That Romney was headed all of them including with women.
I also thought that that the interrupting.
One another and then -- at the moderator.
Against about the candidates when he at times -- Romney only nine times Obama.
Three extra minutes for Obama then for Romney with something really has got to change it the next presidential commission when they go to 2016 to decide.
I think they should but back on these last two debates they've been with got to fix a dance off to also -- -- that.
-- -- and the moderator Candy Crowley and there are three different occasions where she tried to cut the president off because his time was up.
He said no candy this is very important no candy this.
This will there.
Determined that difference between our two race -- -- three times and let him go from -- longer time.
-- real problems that.
Bob mentioned if there were a plausible Republican candidate he would be winning by seven or eight points -- Mitt Romney as we found out today is up by six points.
According to Gallup -- were close so.
Therefore he must be plausible and -- Greg intense.
Drones and president -- three great lineup yet hopeless I was.
-- -- a rolling -- for -- lucky is he ahead in the Trace the history yes.
Is he above 50% no and the other problem that -- he's got is Barack Obama's favorability personal favorability is up over fifty Enron just told -- I don't.
Pretty even they -- they don't like the bit.
All he is they think they -- a guy like -- hasn't that you didn't.
That's right Eric Dow hasn't at fifteen and historically speaking about any candidate that was at 50% in the Gallup poll always consistently went on to win I would also point out it wants it should be yet but it should be the incumbent.
That should be leading an incumbent president to be leading.
Mitt Romney right now you can't just put the onus on Mitt Romney -- -- winning even -- he is.
And third point.
What was Obama's plan last night.
The fact that he didn't offer any vision for the next four years even got picked up by the New York Times editorial board today where they said.
What's he gonna do the next four years Wall Street Journal to the same exact thing no vision for the next four years no plan.
Popular you're having struck our I don't know interface I just.
I'm just overwhelmed.
Just for purposes of the record Gallup has -- a rolling poll for about three presidential elections.
Which is not just as we make any model for -- Secondly I don't believe that that is an accurate statement if you're 50% at this stage of the game -- that you go underwent.
I'm not so sure about yet I'm out on the right -- and I'd at a hundred okay I'd like to see where Kerry was vs bush decision again.
But is -- there's only three races years so what what's you can't make him some statement about.
Historically is -- is not twelve years.
And I -- laughing because I called presented -- that I trust and mom.
Kimberly Guilfoyle because an elected in what Archos here the what did you think that's who go on morning anyway go -- I I I I I I called Anna and and -- -- up and ready to go I -- what I thought is that if you're not good I'm not a mom.
And I want to what did you think and she said that she's not that Obama came off as cocky.
My -- right -- obviously been a big.
Romney supporter I'm on here but she said that.
That she felt that Romney gave her confidence as you can put her kids' future and his -- That I thought was some -- may be is reflected in some of these polls where women across the board it said.
They go up when it comes to leadership economy deficit health care all -- -- Romney.
Is coming down for -- -- and I think there's good reason for an Biden didn't help him at all.
I was -- was she would supposedly by Nash when he -- -- great president.
There's no better -- bounce firm Biden was a cinder blocks and -- OK we got a break.
