I'm going to say something controversial here.
Uh, Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. today, just a few hours before the debate started.
Romney did his debate prep in Denver.
When you go to 5,000 feet, uh, and you only have a few hours to adjust . . . .
Big Al may be on to something. Not necessarily the altitude, but something clearly related.
Maybe Obama was just too close to the sun. After all, everybody already knows about the "settled science" of global warming and its impact upon the planet and upon earthlings thereupon.
This is not yet confirmed by MSNBC, but rich guy Romney may have used a special hair cream, unavailable to hardworking Americans, that counters the negative altitudinous impact upon blood flow and thinking upon one's feet that can afflict mental and verbal performance while in insufficently adjusted solar proximity.
