Obama's Stephanie Cutter knocks Lehrer

Cutter's decision to knock Lehrer may signal an acknowledgment by the Obama campaign that the president did not perform as well as his challenger, Mitt Romney -- which was the general consensus of the media, including the usually pro-Obama MSNBC. (MSNBC hosts Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz slammed Obama's performance.)

Many on the left criticized Lehrer for being too silent. He rarely interrupted the candidates when they went over their allotted time,

[It was Obama who rambled on and on most of the time]


But Lehrer's passivity also allowed the two candidates to engage one another, and if Obama did not engage Romney or land any singificant blows, he may have no one to blame but himself. Though it is the moderator's responsibility to keep time and keep the candidates on topic, it was up to the president -- not the moderator -- to take on his challenger.

I don't see too much of this by jeernalists themselves. I see media giving a platform to Obama surrogates to blame everything but the kitchen sink for their idol's poor performance, but I see jeernalists doing what they do best: jeer.

Well, it's obvious that Lehrer didn't get the memo that Obama is to be protected at all times by all media.

Obama came out of the locker room with a red pinney over his uniform, just like every other time the media is involved. Unfortunately, it was game-time, and he got hit.
