Obama on 1st Debate: “I Was Too Polite” [AUDIO]
This morning on the TJMS The President called in to address his performance in the first debate and what he will do for the Black community. Listen to the entire interview inside! Then Double check your voting registration status and get ready to vote on Nov 6th!
Republicans act like they done won the election after Mitt "won" the first Presidential debate last week.
But many of the President's supporters insist Barack hit Romney with the "Rope-a-dope". A Mohammad Ali strategy in which one party purposely puts itself in what appears to be a losing position, attempting thereby to become the eventual victor. (Remember the rumble in the Jungle fight?)
Was the President purposely letting Romney pull out all his punches and tire himself out in the first round so that Barack can easily knock him out? Let's find out!
TOM JOYNER: I only have two questions for you. One, what happened at the debate? Everybody wants to know. Or was that some kind of genius strategy to rope and dope him in and then fact check him at the end? Or, and the other question is for all of my, my black friends who say that the President’s not doing nothing, not doing anything for the black community, talk to them.
BARACK OBAMA: Well, two things. I mean, you know, the debate, I think it’s fair to say I was just too polite, because, you know, it’s hard to sometimes just keep on saying and what you’re saying isn’t true. It gets repetitive. But, you know, the good news is, is that’s just the first one. Governor Romney put forward a whole bunch of stuff that either involved him running away from positions that he had taken, or doubling down on things like Medicare vouchers that are going to hurt him long term.
