The Obama campaign adviser broke down the Denver debate in a nearly 30-minute session with reporters.
Listen to the entire call above.
Here are some key quotes:
On the President’s failure to raise Romney’s 47% remarks: “He made a choice last night to answer the questions that were asked.”
On Romney’s performance: “He may win the Oscar for his performance last night, but he’s not going to win the Presidency on his performance last night.”
On future debate strategy:
- “It’s like a playoffs…. You evaluate after every contest and make adjustments and I’m sure we will make adjustments.”
- “[The President] has to make some adjustments to the fact that [Romney] is kind of a serial artful dodger.”
- We will “hold Gov. Romney accountable for the things he said in the first debate and make him justify those claims.”
