Does Obama want it anymore?

Recommended Posts

Under Obama, the United States has been surprisingly indifferent to world affairs when comparing him to George W Bush.

 

Under Obama, the US has set a timetable to withdraw from Afghanistan, ended the Iraq War, refused to participate in the Syrian Civil War, and chose to "lead from behind" during the Libyan Civil War. Obama, however expanded drone strikes, but that can't be compared to Bush's sending thousands of troops to foreign lands. And this foreign policy is far more favorable to me than Bush's unilaterism.

 

I'm afraid if Romney comes into power, he might give in to the neo-con Republicans :(

I agree, the neo-con and Christian zionist will have an immense influence in the new administration if Obama were to lose. Obama had it in the bag untill the Benghazi killings of the US Ambassador. He was untouchable in the foreign affairs issues untill then, this must have disheartened him to the point of him arriving to the debate emasculated and fatigued. Now he had to answer for a misfiring economy and America in re-treat from the Arab world.

 

I think he needs to capture the fire in his belly that he once had.

^Why would he want it any more? The bloody thing turned him from a young handsome guy to wrinkly grey haired old man in just four years. Think what four more years could do to him.

A case of paralysis by analysis, the man wants it but cant debate, he lost the tug of war because of two reasons, a) underestimated his opponent b) more importantly Obama is an awful debater, he can read a script and woe audiences with speeches, but a debater that is quick on his feet he is not.

Awoowe, Obama was gish galloped. Pure and simple.

 

I believe (or I hope) Obama will be better prepared next debate now that a new Mitt Romney has emerged.

That's Joe. He could get away with it.

 

These debates are unnecessarily over-analyzed. At the end of the day, they don't matter. They are talking points for media that run out of stuff to analyze.
