Al Gore offered an explanation Wednesday night for President Obama's poor debate performance:
“I’m going to say something controversial here . . . Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. 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... Maybe."Speaking from experience, I would say that Gore may be right. Every time I have flown into Denver it has always taken me awhile to adjust to the altitude. When your lungs are not acclimated to the thin air, it does makes you lethargic and off your game.
And, believe me we all know, even conservatives, that the president was off his game.
