There is a famous parable of the seven blind men and the elephant. Each of the blind men touches the elephant and comes away with the conclusion that the sum of the elephant is the part they are holding on to. It applies a little too well to the left which seizes on its grand explanation for everything and plugs it in regardless of the circumstances.
How does the left deal with Obama’s debate loss? It goes after the usual suspects. Michael Moore, a fat white man, blames racism.
For the past 2 days, the Right has been pounding their “Obama is an angry black man video.” Did this affect O, that he had to appear timid?

Obama didn’t lose the debate. He was intimidated by a culture of racism created by the right. A culture of racism that involved broadcasting his own speeches.
Al Gore blames everything on the angry earth so he blames Obama’s defeat on the environment.
Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet and you have only a few hours to adjust, uh, I don’t know . . . maybe . . .
We don’t have the full tape, but I’m sure there will be an article blaming Denver’s high altitude on global warming.
The common denominator is that everyone but Obama is to blame for his debate loss. The moderator is to blame. Racism is to blame. Denver is to blame. And this is exactly why Obama lost… because within his bubble, no one has ever held him accountable, not for Benghazi, not for anything.
If Obama loses the election, it will be due to racism, the high altitude or because the electoral college is unfair. It will never be because he lost.
