Reasons Obama lost debate:http://ace.mu.nu/archives/333564.phpHilarious: Obama's Friends Explain Why He Lost The Debate(Hint: It Might Involve Him Being Too Smart, Too Kind, Too High-Minded, and Too Cool)Mockery on Twitter, compiled by Twitchy.Here's the original article.Here are the Top Ten reasons Obama lost the debate, per Obama's friends, as sympathetically reported by The New Yorker:1. He's Just Too Interested In Finding Common Ground and Rising Above Petty Disputes To Lower Himself To Being An Effective Debater.He did not go out of his way to defeat someone in argument; instead he tried, always with a certain decorous courtesy, to try to persuade, to reframe his interlocutor’s view, to signal his understanding while disagreeing. Obama became president of the law review—the first African-American to do so—but he won as a voice of conciliation. He avoided the Ames Moot Court Competition, where near contemporaries like Cass Sunstein, Deval Patrick, and Kathleen Sullivan made their names.When Obama avoids competition, it's always because he could win -- if he wanted to. But he's too good for that.It's never because he's just not good at it.6. Obama's Too "Cerebral" To "Engage the Issues" in Debate."We know that Obama skews cerebral and that he has never liked debates as a way to engage issues. He has said that many times.”He prefers "engaging the issues" by giving one sided speeches written for him by other people, filled with political catchphrases and empty rhetoric.See, he's so "cerebral" he doesn't like debate as a vehicle for "engaging the issues," preferring deep thoughts like "We are the change we've been waiting for."He's too smart to master the arguments and counter-arguments, you see.------------------------------------------There's 8 more at the link.
