Barack Obama - Caricature
MSNBC’s Ed Schultz: Obama Didn’t Counterpunch Romney, Afraid to be Called “Angry Black Man” (Photo credit: DonkeyHotey)

The excuses coming from the Democrats about President Obama “empty podium” performance at the first debate Wednesday night. MSNBC’s Ed Schultz, who was visibly shaken and red with anger at the president, explains his performance as not wanting to come across as the “angry black man.” Match that to Al Gore’s “the altitude” caused Obama to bomb.

Schultz:  “It was very frustrating to watch a guy lie to the American people and not be counterpunched because we are afraid he’s going to be called an angry black man.”

Um, wrong. Mitt Romney won the debate by flip-flopping and throwing his campaign positions underneath a bus, to prove that he is a Moderate Republican. The problem is, Obama didn’t bother to push back. He waved a white flag or dropped a bomb on his own performance, depending how you view the situation.
