I’ve embedded video of the first US Presidential Debate above, but I can’t even watch it. It’s both painful and dull. Barack Obama is just boring and un-engaging to watch, like he doesn’t want to be there. It looks like he got in a fight with his wife on their anniversary. Seriously, what is going on. Mitt Romney comes off as comparatively more human. It’s honestly been like this since the Democratic convention, where Bill Clinton defended Obama coherently while Obama, again, was boring.
He’s winning a bit based on forced errors from Romney, and the general felonious erroneousness of Republican policies, but this debate performance was just depressing. Sometimes you wish Bill Clinton was running. Barack Obama has to show that he wants this and wake up, because the alternative is really bad.
