TruthWorks Network Radio "The Black Voice Collaborative"

" Truth Talk Therapy for Strong and Empowered Communities"

Discussion Question

In last night's presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney, the POTUS was subdued, to say the least.  Was he under a spell?  Seriously, why do you think he allowed Mitt Romney to lie like a rug, and get away with it?  Why did he not harp on Romney's dismissiveness of 47% of the population?  Is the president getting good advice?  Was good strategy going on there last night?  Is it time for somebody to get fired.  Do you think Obama might be ill?  What were we seeing?

Dr. Matthew V. Johnson is developing the idea that President Obama was sticking with a tried and true style, like trusting a golfer's swing, but it wasn't working tonight.

I'm just wondering if the president's campaign might have fallen into the trap of an incestuous subculture, maybe too smug for their own good." --Dr. Matthew V. Johnson
