The web is of course churning with
responses reactions to the Presidential debate last night. The consensus is that Romney won by swinging into populist gear while Obama failed to show up. Matthew Rothschild at The Progressive says Obama was “pathetic” (and not just in delivery as is the standard gripe but in message). Big grownups that they are, liberals are licking their wounds by posting pictures of Big Bird and feeling righteous about their love of Sesame Street (Romney said he’d cut funding to PBS).
The best commentary on the debate you will read anywhere – the one that says it all – goes to Doug Henwood. Author of a masterful examination of Wall St (as even the Harvard Business Review attests) and a radio broadcaster and journalist for two decades and change, Doug is the US left’s best kept secret. He should be a household name. See for your self: Why Obama Lost the Debate. Then subscribe to his podcast.
