7. Thanks for the reassurance---
I made the mistake of listening to Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow and Ed Schultz tonight and was really feeling low by the time I listened to their commentary after the debate. The only one who didn't go ballistic was Lawrence O'Donnell who had the good sense to remind THEM and the viewers that it's not the news crew at MSNBC who will decide who won or lost the debate. It's the American voters.
And yes, upon reflection, I think Mitt gave the Obama team a gift tonight that will be the gift that keeps on giving. Soon (within hours I predict) we will see ads with clips from tonight's debate that show Mitt for the liar, flip flopper he is. His base has got to be having a a meltdown after his abandoning so much of what he has campaigned on for months on end.
We all just need to remain calm. The President was himself tonight. Don't know what else we were expecting. I know Chris Matthews was hoping he would come out and "kick Mitt in the balls" but really now? Is that Obama's style? Have we EVER seen him come close to doing this? We have to trust Obama and his team. I think they will get the job done. Patience and calmness!!
And for goodness sake, let's don't join the other naysayers. That won't help us and it certainly won't help the President.
