Obama's Debate Performance And The US Ryder Cup Team's Loss
Tom Friedman made several good observations on the presidential debate. Obama's campaign, like the US Ryder Cup Team, became over-confident and it has adopted a loss avoidance strategy, instead of playing to win big. The president was also unprepared for the new Romney that he encountered in the debate. Romney has adopted a new persona as a center right candidate. He is now the defender of the middle class. Obama can no longer assume that Romney will direct his messaging to the Tea Party. He knows who they will vote for.
