Last week a Youtuber argued Obama wanted Romney to be on the attack.
Here is the video description he puts:
A cold strategic analysis on why Obama went Cool in First Debate – he is crazy like a fox. He knows – TURNOUT – not the debates is biggest lever in this election. You won’t hear the "R" word spoken by analysts, no not recession, but racism.
In his five minute video, he says he cannot understand why Obama didn’t go after Romney’s "lies". Instead of admitting Obama cannot defend his record, he says it must be because racist white people won’t like an aggressive Obama.
He thinks white people are more motivated to vote (via their racism) for a weak candidate than their excitement for a strong candidate.
