Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you know that Mitt Romney came out of the debates looking like a Presidential Superstar last night. For those of you unaware that there was a debate last night…Well, you are most likely the “unenlightened electorate” that our Founding Fathers warned the rest of us about.
It wasn’t a good night for the President. He’s lived a sheltered and protected life as a candidate and as a President. He’s never been asked a tough question. He’s never been directly called upon to answer for his horrendous record over the last four years. And…he was missing his teleprompter and speech writers. Leaving the audience nothing but an empty suit on the stage.
Mitt Romney on the other hand blew us away. His knowledge on the issues was astounding and his delivery was flawless and strong. He commanded the stage and introduced us to himself as a man in a light that most of us have never seen before. That was his moment. And he nailed it.
That being said, it didn’t take the RNC long to come out with a new ad playing up the debate “smirk” that Obama wore most of the evening. The thin-skin was on display with full blown annoyance that left him stuttering and stammering with each reply. This short ad summed up the evening perfectly.
