Now from TPM Reader GW …
Concern Trolling. That was my read on the email about Obama living in an alternate reality.
What stuff. What a bunch of Malarkey. Obama was not prepared for what he got - not a debate but a slick, torrent of pure bullshit and new positions. He should have been, but that’s water under the bridge. He should have defended his position and that’s damn near inexcusable, but I suspect he was simply rocked back on his heels by the audacity of someone getting up on a national stage and flat out lying about his past and current positions. I’m also suere that conflicted with the advice he’d had not to appear the angry black man, leaving him effectively wedged. I don’t like that he COULD get wedged that way, but to jump from that to a “alternate reality”, seriously?
