Still, the former Massachusetts governor was far superior to the president in command, nimbleness, and demeanor. President Obama seemed lost and irritated when his shallow talking points from the campaign stump were met with cold, hard facts.
I loved seeing Romney’s mirthful looks when the president attempted to spew his misstatements; the Republican looked like a kindly grandfather who was taking it upon himself to set the young whippersnapper straight. But it was Mr. Obama, the younger man, who looked tired, old, and grouchy, and Romney who looked energetic and ready to go 15 more rounds.
The president was truthful on at least one point this week, however: Romney is the better debater.
