Carville: Romney 'Had A Good Night,' While Obama 'Didn't Want To Be There'

Following tonight’s first presidential debate, liberal pundit James Carville told his fellow CNN panelists that, despite his support for President Barack Obama, he has to admit that it looked like GOP challenger Mitt Romney had a better performance.

“I had one overwhelming impression,” he said. “I did everything I could not to reach it, but it looked like Romney wanted to be there and President Obama didn’t want to be there.”

He continued: “It seemed like Romney was happy to be there. Obama gave me the impression that the whole thing was kind a lot of trouble.”

The former Bill Clinton strategist then admitted he believes Romney “had a good night.”

“I think he wanted to be there,” concluded Carville. “I think he knew he needed this, and I think Obama gave the sense he wasn’t happy to be at this debate.”
