Obama Admits; “I Was Just Too Polite” – Referring To 2012 1st Presidential Debate
During a radio interview with Tom Joyner Wednesday morning, Obama tried to do just that, telling the hugely popular host that he understands he has to go for the jugular when he meets Mitt Romney again next Tuesday.
Below is a transcript sent out by the Tom Joyner Morning Show:
This could very well be a bluff on the president’s part. For all the talk of Obama failing to push back hard enough against Romney in their first debate, his favorability numbers did improve after the fact, suggesting there are some benefits to not engaging too hard.
That said, Democrats are predisposed to devolve into emotional distress at the first sign of political trouble, instinctively rushing to plot out their post-election moves to Canada. With Obama currently facing an enthusiasm gap against Romney, he may very well find it necessary to not just soothe these concerns but get his base charged up again during the next debate.
