According to Obama, Social Security is structurally sound even though it’s in deficit spending, the resurgence of Al Qaeda in North Africa is just a bump in the road… and don’t ask him how many more days it is until the election.
Obama then stumbled on the number of days until the election — “what is it, 34?” he said, before being given the correct number, 36.
“So whatever it is,” Obama said, “it’s really coming up quick and obviously Nevada is going to be critical to this fight. Nevada’s going to be close. It’s going to be close all across the country.
Whatever country that might be. Don’t ask him how many states are in the United States. He got that one wrong already.
This was a day before the debate and Obama was whining about having to stay indoors and do his homework. No seriously.
“Basically they’re keeping me indoors all the time,” Obama told a supporter on the phone during a visit to a Las Vegas area field office.
“It’s a drag,” he added. “They’re making me do my homework.”
To be sure, Obama also said he had a “great prep” yesterday, and “it was a lot of fun.”
And then the nice lady gave him a gold star and some cookies and let him play in the yard. But yes clearly Obama lost the debate because he was too smart to come down to Romney’s level and communicate with the peasants.
