5:28 am
encounter between president barack obama and republican challenger mitt romney left the incumbent looking like road kill what is behind obama's failure and does it really matter. to crosstalk the first us presidential debate i'm joined by rachel mars today in paris she's a political communications strategist and sidney cade a columnist in washington we have nile standage he is a staff writer for the hill and in london we crossed to david nicholson he is a london based freelance journalist right folks cross talk rose and if i mean you can jump in anytime one rachel what in the world happened last night why why did obama really bomb. and there you just had to relieve the office it's interesting however when saying the bar really low for each of their candidates both campaigns were the word got out that apparently mitt romney was had a really bad night sleep in a hotel because
5:29 am
a train whistle kept going off they stayed in some kind of hotel that was near set a train tracks and the whistle kept going off so they were lowering the bar barack obama's campaign was saying look he might not come out too well in this first debate so they are lowering the bar but i think ultimately maybe he just had a really long day because i was actually really surprised that mitt romney came across this strongly he was aggressive he was in control. listeners right now that although in this program are all none of us really have a dog in this fight. i am very much for romney so i may as well put that put that out there but the same time in a relatively objective analysis and i think it's important to you know disclosure biases before you give an analysis of people view is currently understand where you're coming from but looking at it really objectively i was surprised because i thought romney would have a pretty difficult time as he has thus far connecting with voters. he's not necessarily a charismatic guy but you don't need to be.
