Debate Recap: Obama Lacked Passion

Barack Obama lost the debate tonight for two reasons:

1) Taking advantage of lower expectations, Romney appeared strong, confident, and capable. Most Americans probably expected him to stumble and make gaffes. Even though he didn’t say much of substance or present details, he did better than expected, impressing the pundits and the casual viewer.

2) Barack Obama debated as he governs: with caution and timidity. A fiery progressive would have gone after the Republicans by name, for all their obstruction and failed ideas, emphasizing the failed GOP Bush-era policies and unwillingness to pass legislation. The President never really went after Romney for his flip-flops, missing tax returns, offshore accounts and elitist lifestyle. Obama lacked passion and conviction, just like he does when he attempts to compromise with Republicans in Congress.
