One of the points in Monday’s editorial really bothered me.

The sentence “What if Obama let Romney set himself up for a future failure by lulling him into a false sense of security?” bothered me.

Uh — really?

Come on, liberals. I know you all are sore losers (How many times did Al Gore ask for a ballot recount in Florida in the 2000 election?), but even you cannot be that hardheaded.

Romney kicked Obama’s a-- so badly that even the most liberal hosts on MSNBC admitted Romney won and could not find a way to defend Obama’s performance. (I’m looking at you, Chris Matthews.)

But, for argument’s sake, lets say Obama and his campaign team’s strategy was to throw the debate.

If it was, Obama should fire his campaign manager. No one throws a debate this close to the election unless he or she wants to lose.

And if Obama is so wonderful, why did he need to throw a debate to surprise attack Romney in the next one?

I have a better question: What if Obama lost the debate because his points didn’t stand up to scrutiny? Or because he cannot defend the last three and a half years of his presidency as we’re still stuck in this “Bush-era” economy?

I agree with the end of the column, though.

Joe Biden is a light in the distance — one of great comedic relief.

His ridiculous remarks (“They’re going to put y’all back in chains” is my favorite.) make great television. Plus, I cannot wait to see the excuses people will come up with when he loses.
