WHAT IS THE SOUND OF ONE HAND CLAPPING?

31 Dec

Most of our well informed cable TV pundits  rave on about how badly the President did. They opine that it was a disaster! Chris Mathews almost had a heart attack?

 

What was the President thinking?

 

What we should be asking is,

 

“WHAT WERE THE PUNDITS THINKING?”

 

Only a very insecure person or a fool would want to waste their time bantering with a BS artist like Mitt, the “etch a sketch” man.  It would have been a draining experience for the president because “turn on a dime’ Romney would bouncing all over the stage, throwing out comments that were made up as he went and amounting to nothing more than a lot of empty rhetoric.

 

Using the Zen approach was the wisest move for the President by allowing Romney throw the BS out there and letting hit the wall rather than him. This debate was no different than “what’s the sound of one hand clapping” koan.

 

There was another hint of this approach in the third debate when the President responded with “please proceed” to one of Mitt’s foot in mouth moments.

 

In the big picture it was Romney who lost the first debate by being so full of himself he “proceeded” to have a debate with himself as Obama (to his credit) let the BS fly by getting out of the way, and, when all is said and done, won the election
