Draggingtree Posted October 4, 2012 Share Posted October 4, 2012 Bloomberg: Commander in Chief Wasn’t in Command of Debate By Caroline BaumOct 4, 2012 8:51 AM CT Two candidates showed up in Denver last night for the first of three presidential debates. Only one was really there. Republican nominee Mitt Romney looked his opponent in the eye as he talked. He was engaged, animated yet relaxed, in command. President Barack Obama, on the other hand, looked down at the lectern or at moderator Jim Lehrer, with only furtive glances at Romney. He fidgeted, made facial grimaces, looked annoyed. "I'm the president. Why do I have to submit to this folderol?" (OK, so maybe he didn't think "folderol.") Romney's answers were clipped, direct. Obama's were rambling, interspersed with lots of "uhs," as if somehow the material were unfamiliar. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
