The Fix offers four reasons why President Obama gave such a lame performance in Wednesday night's debate with Mitt Romney. But the oddest theory comes from former vice president Al Gore:
"I'm going to say something controversial here," Gore told Current TV, the network he co-founded. "Obama arrived in Denver at 2 pm today, just a few hours before the debate started. Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet and you only have a few hours to adjust, I don't know."
I wonder if acclimating to the mile high altitude had anything to do with Team Romney's decision to head to Denver today for debate prep?
