Lehrer a lifetime appointment?

I understand why Supreme Court Justices are appointed for life.

And I think Jim Lehrer is a national treasure.

He’s always been soft spoken.

But he’s 78, it seems his voice was too soft for the room he was in tonight — and that didn’t work.

I’d rather see a debate with no moderator than what we saw tonight.

All I’m hearing is that Romney was tough and Obama was weak.

That’s not how it occurs to me.

It looked to me like Romney was pushy and forceful.

Just like Obama did in 2008 debates (and has made an effort to do as President, even though he hasn’t been characterized this way), he completely respects his opponent.

He respects his elders.

He attacks hard in ads and with drones — and refuses to attack in conversation.

And he wins elections.
