44. While He Was Too Polite

He was also disengaged and inattentive and seemed unable to think on his feet. I know that is not him so he can change that around. The question is, will he. It was like he didn't have enough rest so his staff needs to be more careful with his scheduling. Granted, the format was crappy and the moderator was bullied by Romney but Obama's awareness of what was going on was quite sub-par -- perhaps understandable given that Romney dumped all of his previous positions leaving Obama at a quandary on which Romney to engage -- the one on the campaign trail for the last 2 years or the one that showed up on Wednesday night. With Romney's history of flip-flops the Obama campaign should have anticipated this as a possibility and had a back-up plan in place. Axelrod dropped the ball on this.
