Obama Has a Job, Romney Doesn’t.

Obama won the debate.  I think I have heard enough punditry (is that a word) on that topic.  I get it.  I watched.  Yes he was distracted, yes he wasn’t “on his game,”, yes he looked down too much.  Gee, I wonder what could cause a person, like the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES to be distracted.  Could it be something that we don’t even know about, some top secret terrorist, or Middle Eastern crisis causing him to worry?  Perhaps?

Jon Sununu, former NH Governor actually referred to Obama as “lazy” on Andrea Mitchell’s  MSNBC show.  She was shocked.  We all should be shocked.  Not only is that an inappropriate word to call the current president (maybe appropriate for former President George W. Bush), but downright racist. 

What does Mitt Romney do all day?  Hmmm.  I think his job is RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT.  He doesn’t have a job.  He gets to run around the country all day and make speeches and meet people and spend hours and hours and hours at his beautiful NH lakefront home preparing for his three debates. 

And while Romney is preparing for his debates with the President, before we get too critical on how he did in the first debate, spend some time imaging a day in the life of both of these men as we move toward the election.  Obama cannot spend nearly as much time preparing for the debates as Romney as he has to run the country.  Why has this point not come up during any of the criticism of him?  Why hasn’t one of the so-called brilliant journalists we have on all these news stations thought of this?  Let’s cut him a little slack.
