Obama is not a fighter [View all]

That is not a criticism, just an observation.
He prefers to compromise.
Many of us (me included) wanted him to fight the banks, fight the insurance companies , fight the Repubs on the deficit and the stimulus. Instead he made deals and got things passed. Maybe not going as far as we would like, but it's how he operates.
So yes, he could have countered some of Romney's lies more last night, but he is not going to be aggressive and combative, just not type of person he is. He is not and will never be a Roosevelt, either Franklyn or Teddy.
