In the wake of President Obama’s astonishingly poor debate performance, the Republican National Committee has quite appropriately taken the opportunity to use a split screen video that highlights some of Mitt Romney’s sharpest exchanges during the debate with clips of President Obama reacting with a very telling and uncomfortable smirk. (See the video below this post)
Throughout the debate, Mitt Romney seemed to often school the President on everything from taxes and the economy, to healthcare and the constitution. And as Romney confidently but politely rattled off what were embarrassing facts and figures for the President to hear, the President spent most of his time fidgeting as he looked down with a silly grin that gave away just how uncomfortable he was with his failed policies.
The R.N.C. used these images to drive the President’s failures home and they did so in a way that allowed Romney to appear to be in total control with a superior command of the issues and level of confidence that President Obama failed to demonstrate throughout the debate.
The ad successfully portrays President Obama as being helpless and unable to defend his record, which up to now, he has done his best to distract voters from.
