Indecision 2012, First Presidential Debate: YAWN
Maybe it’s just me. Either I’ve become much more jaded and easily bored than I ever was, or tonight’s Obama-Romney debate was the most excruciatingly boring bone-dry wonkish argument EVER.
Nobody will ever need Valium or Lunesta again. Just play back your video or DVD of tonight’s debate and you’ll sleep like a baby for twelve hours.
I’m not blaming either candidate. Whether it was the format itself, or the questions from the moderator — Obama just needed to tread water, and Romney had this one and only chance to come from behind, swing hard and land a crushing left hook and devastate his opponent (according to the experts) — it was pretty much “Meh.”
President Obama and Mitt Romney each got off a few zingers. Each individual zinger undoubtedly excited that candidate’s fans and induced an eye roll out of the candidate’s opponents.
Anyway, that’s just my take.
Here are three different versions of tonight’s snore-fest.
Let’s hope the rest of the debates will be more interesting, or else the entire country will be Asleep At The Wheel. (Unless it was just me.)
