Kevin Fischer is a veteran broadcaster, the recipient of over 150 major journalism awards from the Milwaukee Press Club, the Wisconsin Associated Press, the Northwest Broadcast News Association, the Wisconsin Bar Association, and others. He has been seen and heard on Milwaukee TV and radio stations for over three decades. A longtime aide to state Senate Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Kevin can be seen offering his views on the news on the public affairs program, "InterCHANGE," on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, and heard filling in on Newstalk 1130 WISN. He lives with his wife, Jennifer, and their lovely baby daughter, Kyla Audrey, in Franklin.
Even liberal pundits readily admit their guy didn’t perform very well.
Kirsten Powers made what I thought was the first observation that President Obama refused to make eye contact with his opponent, often looking down at the podium. The president looked as though “he didn’t want to be there.”
Ed Schulz, using the word “unfortunately,” also credited Mitt Romney with victory. Obama was described as “listless” and “off his game.”
Romney came out swinging, looking presidential and enthused, rattling off a list of concrete solutions while the president engaged in glittering generalities. With every answer, Obama offered big government as his remedy.
Romney stung Obama after the president stated companies that build overseas get a tax break. The longtime Republican businessman responded by saying based on his experience, he didn’t know what the president was talking about.
Without his trusty teleprompter, Obama appeared unprepared. Maybe he should dump John Kerry as his debate sparring partner.
Some other points:
Total talking time: Obama 42:50, Romney 38:30.
CBS News insta-poll: 46% said Romney won. 22% said Obama won. 32% said tie.
CNN's insta-poll of registered voters: 67 percent said Romney won, 25 percent said Obama.
