The Obama team is showing signs of stress. VP Joe Biden is out gaffe-making again. The president goes on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show and says, “When four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.” (Oh. My. Goodness.) He is falling behind in state and national polls. So is it time for Democrats to panic? Well, many signs point that way.Mary Chastain notes that the debates are showing what has been known for some time:
The debate was another win for Governor Mitt Romney, but it also broke down President Barack Obama’s character and showed America a little bit behind the mask. He does not do well when he loses control.Cracks started at the beginning, but it finally broke during the assault weapons question. Governor Romney had the nerve to bring up Operation Fast & Furious, the government gun walking operation that placed 2,000 weapons into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. These guns are linked to the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and 300+ Mexican citizens. There was another gun walking operation out of Dallas and those guns are linked to ICE Agent Jaime Zapata’s death.
President Obama interrupted Governor Romney by getting Ms. Crowley’s attention. She obliged and turned the debate back to President Obama. He decided to stray into education and when Ms. Crowley tried to gain control of the debate he snapped.
