After the past couple days, it has been interesting to see the Obama camp spin on the debate. They blame Romney. Others blame the altitude. They say Romney is lying. The moderator was bad. They are saying everything except “the President blew it.”
I just read the debate transcript. You can see how many times Obama interrupted the moderator and can see that he really did have more time (52% of the total talk time to Romney’s 47%). It is just that he didn’t say much in the time he talked. And it is CLEAR from the transcript that Obama’s plan for the future is non-existent.
His plan, clearly, is to focus on Romney and what a terrible person he is.
I hope Romney can keep the focus on Obama’s bad first term results and focus on his own different, upbeat plans for the future.
