Debate Report Card: President Obama Came On 'Too Strong’
Peter Johnson Jr. weighed in on last night’s presidential debate on Fox and Friends, saying he believed Gov. Romney won because of his “clearer vision of the future” and “dignified, persuasive approach.”
Johnson, who attended the town hall debate at Hofstra University, also added that Obama
was much more aggressive than before. But even though Obama “came out swinging,” as Johnson said, the Fox News legal analyst ultimately thought the president came on too strong, calling his performance “an unseemly display.”
Johnson also criticized the candidates, and President Obama in particular, for invading each other’s space as well as their responses. He wasn’t a fan of Obama’s tactic of dismissing much of Gov. Romney’s statistics as false, either.
“I think there’s a lot of satisfied hardcore liberal democrats this morning, but I think mainstream Americans — independent Americans — are saying, ‘Who was more presidential?’” summed up Johnson. “And on that count — and on that count alone — I think Mitt Romney won that huge.”
