Maybe Obama had a bad day this Wednesday… but as a sometimes rigid and rational person.. the creative and novel stuff from his opponent probably threw him hard off his game… and his focus on the visuals…
“Nobody had to tell President Barack Obama he had whiffed when he walked off the stage in Denver Wednesday night — nor was he in the mood for a lot of advice,” Politico reports.
Said an adviser: “You could tell he was pissed.”
“At first, Obama didn’t think his performance was a complete disaster. But he began Thursday morning by watching excerpts of his own performance and was especially struck by his own tentative, grim demeanor — especially when he and a more relaxed Mitt Romney were broadcast in split-screen. It was worse than he thought, according to one person close to the situation. He was subdued but positive on a conference call with staff.”
