Obama just sucks in debates, and he's not naturally an extroverted guy. Nothing more, nothing less. That usually means you'll never be able to be a politician except Obama's black and can give a terrific speech, which overcomes weaknesses that would usually be insurmountable for a politician.
He's not some evil sociopath.
He's also not a natural leader or a guy who has naturally good ideas about how to get the economy going, how to create jobs, how to provide for the national defense or how to bring people together instead of divide them.
