The producers at Saturday Night Live think they figured out why President Obama had such a hard time during the first presidential debate. He forgot his anniversary and Al Gore was right, and the altitude was getting to him.

My own theory is still that the sheer number of lies told by Romney that contradicted things Willard had just said the day or week before had him vapor locked as how to respond, combined with some bad campaign advice that it was better to let rMoney walk all over him rather than having the viewers, heaven forbid, think he's coming across as "the angry black man."

Let's just hope the Barack Obama we saw out campaigning a day after that debate shows up for the next one.

I know President Obama is capable of talking off the cuff and pushing back at Republican bull-pucky because we've seen him be really good at it before, like when he appeared before the House Republicans and made mincemeat of them. I'm hoping that's who shows up for round two.
