Seventy-million viewers watched Wednesday’s debate, compared to only 38 million who tuned in to watch Obama’s most recent State-of-the-Union address.
So, the huge debate audience must have been primarily interested in seeing how the relatively unknown Romney performed against the all-too-well-known and over-rated Obama.
According to all measures and standards, never has a presidential candidate so outperformed his opponent in a debate as Romney did Obama. And the debate will not soon be forgotten.
It’s been 50 years since John Kennedy famously beat the dour Richard Nixon and his five o’clock shadow in America’s first nationally televised presidential debate, yet Kennedy’s victory was so narrow he would not have been elected without Chicago’s Mayor Daley stuffing the ballot boxes for him, as has been well documented.
Mitt Romney’s performance was good enough and Obama’s poor enough to be remembered fifty years from now. Not to mention four weeks from now on Election Day. And the Daley family is no longer in power in Chicago; they’ve been replaced by the very political hacks like David Axelrod who are responsible for advising Obama on his debate performance, which was such an historically memorable disaster.
Yup....this debate was a game-changer. It exposed Obama in a way that’s not been done before. He’s an Afirmative Action product, and for many Americans, I think that fact hit them right in the face for the first time. Obama will never be looked at in the same way again by the public.....he was disgraced.
