An early morning radio host best said it. "If you think Obama won last nights debate, you are more confused than that 'Octomom' on Fathers Day."
Mr. Obama has consistently avoided the anger and petulance that his most Liberal supporters demand of him to his advantage. Every lie he supposedly did not correct in last night's debate, he did in fact correct if you read the transcript. What he didn't do is scream at the top of his lungs 'YOU'RE A LIAR MR. ROMNEY!' Which is what his most ardent supporters 'think' they want of him, but would regret if he did, for good reason.
We've seen this same scenario play out on many occasions at this point, from the 2008 primary and presidential debates, to his wisdom of staying cooler than some prefer in his dealings with congress. He knows what's best.
Nobody likes a mean angry president.
Romney on the other hand, while winning the 'who's most aggressive' contest, did not seem presidential at all and his endless numerical lists only added to his image as a robotic candidate who isn't comfortable in his own shoes.
