And as you always see with a bully, when they are confronted, they wilt.

Confronting a bully is not enough.

You have to convince them you can effectively fight back.

In this case, Obama tried a few bully tactics and Mitt punched back with interest. Bullies do NOT want a fight. They want to dominate.

Obama found that his bully tactics resulted in a great deal of pain. Since Obama doesn't have any other tactics, he had nothing left to do but talk about his pre-planned talking points.

Which left Mitt free to continue using Obama as a punching bag.
