Here's a screenshot from Reuters, a few hours after the -- to my memory, anyway -- most one-sided presidential debate in recent political history:
Sure, they admit it was a "good" night for Romney. But it's irresistible to the left wing lickspittle Obama media -- they have to make his arguments for him. Even after the worst debate performance by a presidential candidate in decades -- maybe ever -- the press still feels the need to step in and say, in effect, here's what our candidate should have said.
That's what the next few days will be: Obama's too smart, he's too cerebral, he's too thoughtful, he's too professorial.
Anything but the truth: he's a rotten candidate and a lousy president and he's got precisely zero to run on.
The words he didn't say "spoke the loudest?" He said plenty. And America heard it. And it can all be boiled down to this: I'm out of gas.
Privately, some Democratic strategists said the challenger got the best of the president. “We got our clock cleaned,” said a Democratic strategist who spoke on condition of anonymity out of fear of retribution. The Democrat had reviewed results of polls and focus groups of the debate.
To be fair, the deck was stacked against Obama, who came into the debate with a lead over Romney plus the baggage of incumbency.
The "deck was stacked against Obama?" What planet are they living on?
