Call in to speak with the host
by Egberto Willies
President Obama brought his game to the second Presidential debate. Mitt Romney continued with his bully antics and at one point told the President to pretty much shut up as he would have his turn.
The debate was intense. President Obama was much more assertive and commanding than I expected. However, true to form many of the commentators at CNN initially called the President’s intensity angry and aggressive. Note that Romney’s behavior in the first debate was described as assertive and commanding. When I wrote the blog post “President Obama’s Fear of the Angry Black Man Label Loses the Debate On Style But Wins On Facts” I got some push back. CNN proved the point in real time. I immediately started tweeting both Wolf Blitzer and Jessica Yellin about it and I sent them a link to the blog post. It is essential that when the mainstream media is distorting the narrative that they get real time pushback.
Let us discuss the debate, the polls, and the dangers that are looming with this election.
It's good to talk.
