President Barack Obama had a crappy wedding anniversary last week. In an interview with Diane Sawyer (which TV Rage's superb Joel Thomas told you about earlier today), Obama admitted that he had a bad night when he debated Republican challenger and Big Bird enemy Mitt Romney. But he also said he is not dwelling on it.
The interview with Sawyer was the president's first since the debate last Thursday in Denver. With Sawyer pushing him to discuss it, Obama admitted his performance was subpar but refused to dwell too much on it.
"Well it's not the first time I've had a bad night," he said. "But I think what's important is the, the fundamentals of what this race is about haven't changed. You know, Governor Romney went to a lot of trouble to try to hide what his positions are."
Obama has attacked Romney's remarks since the debate, basically calling him a liar. He has taken a decent hit in the polls - the New York Times 538 political blog has his chance of winning currently at 67.9 percent, a drop of 18.2 percent since the debate.
There are still two debates scheduled between the two men, as well as a debate tomorrow night between Vice President Joe Biden and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Paul Ryan.
I thought Romney "won" the debate, but I didn't think it was a home run. I guess I'm in the minority on that one.
