Fox News’s Brit Hume saiys that unlike many pundits and commentators, he wasn’t surprised by President Barack Obama’s poor debate performance.
“This idea that [Mitt] Romney won the debate because Obama basically didn’t show up, I don’t buy that,” Hume said on the “Fox News Sunday” panel.
Hume said the Obama he heard on the debate stage was not much different from the Obama he’s heard over the past four years. Obama "sounded very much like himself," Hume said.
The president wasn’t “terribly bad” as a debater, but “he has a very weak case” and Romney was “on his game,” Hume said.
“The president was saddled with weak circumstances, and therefore a weak case, and it was not surprising to me that he did not argue it well,” Hume said.
Obama’s supporters were shocked because “they all thought he was 10-feet tall — he’s not 10-feet tall, never has been,” Hume said.
