The Underdog Syndrome

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama

The pundits relish and bask in the sun of Governor Romney’s debate performance. Oh how he destroyed  Obama. Those who know Obama know they must listen to what he says and then watch what he does.

Obama skillfully lost this debate on purpose. I knew it when I watched his demeanor during the debate. He looked like Mikey who just got caught with his hands in the cookie jar. At first I too relished in a victory.  Victories don’t come often, and when they do I celebrate them. The problem with this victory is that it was premeditated by Obama. The Mikey look was a part of the act to make it seem like he was getting shellacked. Why would he throw the debate? He is a student of Rules for Radicals. The rules led him to throw the opposition off with a simple unexpected ploy. The Mikey look was one caused by wanting to come back to argue eloquently as he usually does, but he had to bite his tongue instead.

What advantage does this give Obama? He knew his base was beginning to abandon him, and he had to become the underdog. People love underdogs. His base will love him as an underdog. Obama will recover quickly because of the underdog principle.

Am I wrong?

  1. Oh Gawd…..I hope you are wrong but the hypothesis bears thought! The crafty Obama is not above any ploy to WIN in November and Romney and his camp MUST remember this and prepare for the next debate…with it being a town hall meeting who knows what questions Romney will face.
