replying to this again, not to pick on pete, but because this is the most amazing, mind-boggling thing to me about this brand-new Obama-hatred phenomena and I've seen this reaction *A LOT* from the right. People who see every slight facial tick or barely-noticeable reaction as an amazingly horrible slight and proof-positive that he's an arrogant disgusting specimen of a human being.
You've really got to be crazily invested far down the deep end of the "the other party is evil" rabbit hole to get here. It's not like Obama went full Gore sighing mode here, he generally smiled, looked down, took notes, and sounded clunky and off in the debate. This is not a reaction to Romney or a slight against anyone, even when he was losing to Hillary and badly needed an energizing comeback performance he performed no better. The guy is simply an introverted thinker who cant speak well without a teleprompter.
Guess what. Over 99+% of the country, including probably everyone hating him, are the same way and would do far worse looking like a stammering awkward fool on the big stage. He obviously loves his family, seems like a decent enough guy, no matter what you think of his politics, why do these far-right zealots constantly have to go convince themselves that Obama is fundamentally a bad person?
Its almost like a soldier going off to war, and having to convince himself that the enemy are all sub-human monsters to morally convince himself that its OK to kill for his country. (which of course, is sometimes necessary, but Obama is not a WWII Japanese soldier)
