Schumer: Obama Clear Winner

Sen. Charles Schumer came out swinging for the president.

Before President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney were done sparring late Tuesday, Sen. Charles Schumer took his message to the media’s Spin Alley, calling his party’s candidate the clear winner.

“He showed a president who’s calm, who’s strong and focused,” Schumer said of President Obama's latest performance.

While the night’s biggest winner was Hofstra University, which played host to the debate, Schumer said Obama connected on issues while Romney, “Got weaker and weaker and more flummoxed as the debate went on.”

“This is going to be all about the average middle class swing voter and I think that the president appealed to them, showed he understood them and had real plans to help them,” Schumer told reporters. 

Schumer also issued a warning to Republicans.

“If the president wins the election – and I think after tonight it’s a little clearer that he will – I think mainstream Republicans, those who are willing to talk to us, will gain an upper hand. And the hard right people, who Romney has always appealed to, will lose some strength.”

JUST A THOUGHT........When discussing the situation in Benghazi at his speech, in the Rose Garden, the same day he left to party in Vegas .....how did Obama know Crowley had the transcript for the Rose Garden speech in front of her? Did she have the transcripts for the speech at the UN or the response on The View and Univision as well ? Was this a set up? Obama seemed to be waiting for the opportunity and the moment the Benghazi subject was brought up he said something like " Candy...you got the transcript....read it" How did he even know she had it? ....SET UP.....all these so-called moderators are pro-Obama!

She knew which questions would be asked and did some prior research. How Obama knew she had the transcript is a good question!!

Obama did not tell the truth (again) 14 or so days after the attack in Benghazi there he was in front of the UN saying it was a video or film that caused the terrorist attack.
