Obama Says He Lost Debate Because He Was Too Polite

I guess it had nothing to do with four years of failed policies

President Barack Obama said in an interview broadcast on Wednesday that he was “just too polite” in his first debate with Mitt Romney—a new explanation for the incumbent’s widely panned performance in that prime-time political bout.

“What happened in the debate? Everybody wants to know,” radio host Tom Joyner asked Obama. “Was that some kind of genius strategy to rope-a-dope him in?”

The president ducked the Muhammad Ali comparison but said, “I think it’s fair to say I was just too polite.” – Yahoo

I used to say the same thing every time I struck out in Little League. My dad would ask me how it was possible that I could be so bad and I’d just tell him that I didn’t want to hurt the pitcher’s feelings.

It’s Gentleman’s 101 really. Mr. President, don’t stoop to Mitt Romney’s level. Don’t coherently deliver a message with actual facts and figures. That would just be rude.
