The great and venerable Jim Lehrer has already declared that he’s hanging-up his gloves and will moderate no more Presidential debates after this year. Of course, some blame for the unruly fiasco that was this year’s first Presidential debate can be shared with President Obama.
We all saw Mitt Romney ride roughshod over not only the well-specified rules of this particular debate, but over the truth as well. But we really think that Mr. Lehrer might have been a bit more forceful when Mr. Romney spun his fanciful web of smoke and mirrors, and took a great deal of time from President Obama in the process. Oh, and President Obama could have helped but, apparently, both he and Mr. Lehrer are gentlemen.
