Last Night’s Debate Game(s)Posted: October 4, 2012
While I’m sure we all agree that last night’s presidential debate on domestic policy was less than inspiring, the BBC’s Mark Mardell sums it up unusually well:
The three men on the red carpet – the two candidates at their pulpits, and the moderator Jim Lehrer sitting at his over-large desk – all seemed to have a different conception of what the debate should be like, as if they were each playing a different sport on the same field. Romney was playing American football, Obama cricket and Lehrer tiddlywinks.
I just wish they had all played tiddlywinks.That, I am convinced, is America’s path back to greatness.
