Seriously, the smartest guy in the room doesn’t relish the opportunities to dazzle us with his brilliance? You’ve got to be kidding me.
Like other presidents, Mr. Obama’s debate preparations were hindered by his day job, his practice sessions often canceled or truncated because of events, advisers said. One session took place just after he addressed a service for the four Americans slain in Libya, leaving him distracted.
His day job? When when the last time he actually worked? This is fatuous nonsense.
Mr. Obama does not like debates to begin with, aides have long said, viewing them as media-driven gamesmanship. He did not do all that well in 2008 but benefited from Senator John McCain’s grumpy performances. Mr. Obama made clear to advisers that he was not happy about debating Mr. Romney, whom he views with disdain. It was something to endure, rather than an opportunity, aides said.
Aw, the poor thing, forced to endure Romney’s presence. So I guess we should have foregone that tradition of having a presidential debate. Hey, why not just cancel the next two? It might interrupt his “day job,” whatever that actually is.
