In front of a politically mixed crowd and with a record he can't defend, he played it overly cautious, dropping a lot of balls as a result. Yet back on the campaign trail and in front of a friendly audience. he did nothing but criticize Romney, making snarky jokes and not once comparing his policies to Mtts. That's the loser way out, the weakling way out - never face to face with the competition but behind his back and trying to convince your "friends" what a great job you did beating up on the other guy. SMALL BALL!
