I absolutely agree.

Obama is a great QB who was either off his game, or given a bad game plan. And his team has to factor in the possibility of replacement refs, bounties, and outright cheats. Be ready for any scenario, just like his team was when he went after and killed Bin Laden. He can't be deferential, because he represents not only himself, but all Americans, not himself.

Regarding the debate: Hype is one thing, substance is another.

"What would it take for me to put you in this car" salesmanship apparently worked well for Romney in the past; and then, after his company sweet-sold them on buying their company, whoops, we need to lay you off. Smiling all the while. Millions of $$ in his pocket, diverted to offshore accounts.

Last night, Romney introduced the rest of America to the cr@p that has been hitting blue collar Americans for the past 30 years: New head guy comes in, talks a good game, promises every employee is safe (and he sounds so sincere), but we need to cut "waste."

Helpless employees see the tides have changed. Soon, the entire company is paying loans taken out by the raiders (see: Dunkin'Donuts).

Last night's debate showed Romney in his element, with his smarmy CEO salesmanship, sending your job overseas so that the raiders could afford a bigger yacht than their friends.

Pennsylvanians and Ohioans (and others) have seen this before.

Blatant lies must be seen for what they are, not matter how forcefully they were delivered.

To get back to your football analogy, yes, anyone can win on any given Sunday, but I'll definitely take a QB like Obama in a best of three playoff.
