Forbidden Table Talk by Bob Siegel
SAN DIEGO, October 4, 2012 — The mainstream media has been throwing a hissy fit over Romney’s obvious Wednesday night victory. Television news commentaries are many and varied but they can be more or less synthesized like this:
“Sure, Romney had a good night, but that was all because of style. It had nothing to do with his points. And Obama was off his game. You see, Obama is such a nice guy, he would never think of attacking an opponent. He was also ahead in the polls so he felt the best thing was to simply be calm and not rock the boat. Obama still looked very presidential while allowing Romney to treat him like a punching bag. Well… Just wait for the next debate. Obama will be ready. No more Mr. Nice guy.”

But leave it to climate expert Al Gore to offer a better explanation; the climate.
“I’m going to say something controversial here…Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. today – just a few hours before the debate started. Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust – I don’t know…” (Current TV Post debate interview, October 3, 2012).
Has President Obama ever been in Denver before? (Where has he not taken Air Force One?)

Good idea, Al. Why didn’t the rest of us think of this? Since altitude contributes to the over all feel of climate, we can make a case that Obama experienced climate change.
On the other hand, Gore might be on to something profound and symbolic. A kind of climate did seem to be a contributing factor last night. By losing control of the discussion, moderator, Jim Lehrer created a new climate where our two candidates had far more chance to confront each other directly. In other words, by accident, America witnessed something much closer to a real debate.
Generally, the liberal media moderators set the tone of the evening by subtly sneaking their own views into the questions like a Trojan horse.
Lehrer tried. He threw softballs to Obama such as:
“No, about the idea that in order to reduce the deficit there has to be revenue in addition to cuts.”
“But, Mr. President, you’re saying in order to get the job done, it’s got to be balanced.”
It didn’t work. The debate raged on between a very comfortable, energetic Romney and a surprised looking president. Poor Obama never knew what hit him. Had he been able to select a lifeline by phoning a friend or polling the audience, he might have tried. He came close by reminding Lehrer that he “may want to move on to another topic.”
But Lehrer’s loss of control did not prevent Obama from having ample time to defend his four year record. Unfortunately, confronted by his opponent for the very first time, Obama’s sound bites and sanctimonious platitudes about “the rich needing to pay their fair share” were no match for an honest challenge. America saw the real Mitt Romney, not the greedy, out of touch monster floated by Obama campaign commercials. The Romney who showed up last night was a successful businessman who actually understands economics, a man sympathetic to the poor and middle class, but caring enough about them to explain why Obamanomics simply doesn’t work. It was like hearing an announcement that the emperor isn’t wearing any clothes.
