Obama After the Debate

"Nobody had to tell President Barack Obama he had whiffed when he walked off the stage in Denver Wednesday night -- nor was he in the mood for a lot of advice," Politico reports.

Said an adviser: "You could tell he was pissed."

"At first, Obama didn't think his performance was a complete disaster. But he began Thursday morning by watching excerpts of his own performance and was especially struck by his own tentative, grim demeanor -- especially when he and a more relaxed Mitt Romney were broadcast in split-screen. It was worse than he thought, according to one person close to the situation. He was subdued but positive on a conference call with staff."
