13. Imagine if the president had gone after him in the first debate?
Mitt's team would have gone and adjust his performance and also adjust there lies knowing there are two more debates to go and would have learned the president's strategy, the president you have to understand does not think like an average person that is why he is the president with the best team around him. I say this to people around all the time, to win? You have to be willing to make extra sacrifices, especially when the stakes are higher. Here is what I see looking from outside, Team Obama definitely knows that they are showing excellent internal polling numbers by using that strategy. Also, they must have known using that strategy will move Mitt closer, but not above them in the polls, just find the statement that was made by Jim Messima and Axelrod today. I believe they're absolutely creaming Romney in all swing states and are over-performing in other red states.
Hence the reason I stand by my observation from the first debate which was the president won that debate, looking at Mitt Romney you can tell that he knows within himself he was standing with someone who is highly intelligent because you can feel their energy, forget about what the media wants you to believe. That is the reason that he (Mitt) came to the second debate not knowing how the president was going to go after him because the president did the work by NOT going after all his errors or lies in the first debate, he stayed with the facts, you can tell the president was itching to bite the fucka, but he had to be patient. I also believe it was done to rile up the base, maybe they weren't sure whether the base was with them, so he had to come across as not interested or lackluster to fire up the base. Remember, a few days later the president was on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, telling everyone to "chill the fuck out, he got this" well you can remove the fuck part out of it.
One more thing, down ticket Democrats can really over-perform if they can stop worrying about what their counterpart thinks about their campaign and focus more on all the materials that is available out there. Any democrats running for the House that does not win their constituency has either surrounded themselves with incompetent individuals or are incompetent themselves, (yes I know, it's a bold statement) it is needed to be said. Democrats can retake the House without breaking a sweat despite, the money the GOP are spending out there.
