  •  The common wisdom (15+ / 0-)

    is that the President performed poorly in the 1st debate and that Mitten's resurgence was based entirely on the President's performance. While I agree the President  was  not at his best, I disagree with the common wisdom and believe Romney would have received a significant uptick no matter what the President had done,  given Romney's performance and the corporate media's refusal to call out his lies  and disavowals of his prior positions.  Any candidate standing on the same stage as  the President is going to seem  more substantial and lets not forget this  was probably a  vast majority  of the audiences first look at Mittens. So lets not put the blame for the uptick in the polls entirely on the President's poor  performance.
