I don't buy into that. What Barack Obama did during the first debate was deliberate. He needed to do something to wake up his base, his ardent supporters. Something that did not cost money, but got the core supporters energized regardless. The feeling that he could lose did it. It did the trick.
I went to my first Obama event of this election season.
This is nothing original on the part of Barack. He got it from Muhammad Ali. Muhammad Ali was known to taunt his opponents by letting them sometimes win a little in the beginning. And then he would go ahead and knock them out.
Barack knocked out Mitt tonight like Mitt was mittens. It was a slam dunk. I saw the Barack I saw and signed up for in 2004.
