You really have to be almost a blind, partisan political hack pre-disposed to not liking the guy to think Obama acted boorish, when the biggest complaint against him is excessive passiveness.
Well, Romney did not have one, and I am sure he heard plenty from Obama that he did not agree with.
Look, I am not saying that the smirk alone should be the basis on which one should base their vote. I am saying that it made the President look bad, and it contributed to him losing the debate tonight by a wide margin, especially when you combine his smirk with his overall body language and his lack of eye contact with Romney and the way he constantly was looking down at his podium.
