"I'm not a big Romney fan but what little I saw, he did look like the knowing adult in the room. I am beginning to feel a little sorry for O."
While I, too, am beginning to feel sorry for Obama, it's certainly not because he's out of his depth. Rather, it's because it must be immensely frustrating to debate a seemingly shameless liar who, essentially, claims to have magic wand that will somehow fix everything at no cost for anyone, anywhere. From where I sat, Obama was the "knowing adult," the one who made it clear that you can't have your cake and eat it too, that you can't do all of the things that Romney claims that he can do without either blowing up the deficit (as Republican presidents have pretty darn good track record of doing) or cutting programs that are essential to the health and prosperity of our nation.
