As predicted in my first post on the US presidential election poker game, Barack Obama duly moved smoothly into the second game of the three ‘presidential’ debates. This time he was in an aggressive mode causing his opponent to be flustered and to fold at the death in the last few seconds. This enabled Obama to hit Mr.Romney with the 47% ‘zinger’ with no chance to reply. Brilliant! What a player!
So what will be in Obama’s hand in the third and final debate? I predict it will be a fistful of zingers. These cards will be a straight flush of:
The Sensata China Syndrome (outsourcing)
The 47% moochers (again)
The Bain effect
The Income tax question
The War on Women
This is a very good hand and it is difficult to see Mr.Romney getting back at this without totally losing his cool. Looking forward to it!
