21. This is what drives me nuts about Democrats
It's amazing how all the Democratic spokespeople just curl up in the fetal position when the right attacks. You don't see that from them, that's for damn sure. They attack back. If Mitt had fucked up last night (which he didn't - like him or not, he did well in the debate), the right would be backing him up anyway. My people? The left? We fall all over ourselves with the "Woe is me, the president just lost the election" crap.
Apparently, Democrats still haven't figured out that perception is a big part of the game. They should be out there hammering Romney for lying instead of hammering the president for not being on fire enough. They should be forceful in saying, "The president was armed with facts. Mr. Romney had lies - but we'll admit he presented those lies well."
I just hate the day after freakout. Frankly, it was the same with Obama's convention speech. All the pundits called it flat, ripped Obama for not being Bill Clinton, went on and on about how he failed to deliver a knockout ... then the polls started to climb.
I don't know if there are enough undecideds left to cause a poll swing in either direction, but it certainly could go either way here. Still, I sure wish we had some of the right's commitment to our candidate. They freakin' HATE Romney, but I guarantee they still would have backed up his performance, right or wrong. And since we certainly could back up the president on his FACTS, if not his performance, we don't. We just ... curl up in the fetal position. Kills me. Happens every time.
