Polite … or Pathetic?

It appears that Mr. Obama and his supporters have more excuses for his miserable debate performance than they have ideas to turn around the economy. The latest? The president says he was just “too polite.” This follows on the heels of the altitude got to him, the moderator blew it, the president was stunned by Romney’s “lies” and personality change, and Mr. Obama was too “professorial.” Pathetic.

Why can’t Mr. Obama just admit that his opponent beat him fair and square, and he’ll get him next time? Mr. Obama apparently never learned how to lose with class. Well, he’d better win the next debate. If Romney bests him again, what excuses will the president have left?
