How poorly did Barack Obama do in Wednesday's debate?
So poorly that Bill Maher, one of his benefactors, tweeted, "i can't believe i'm saying this, but Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter":

An hour later, this:
Obama made a lot of great points tonight. Unfortunately, most of them were for Romney— Bill Maher (@billmaher) October 4, 2012
For Barack Obama, losing Bill Maher could be as serious as Lyndon Johnson losing Walter Cronkite.
Well, maybe that's overstating it a tad, but it sure is indicative of how poorly the President did Wednesday.
It will be interesting to see what Maher says about this on his HBO program Friday after he's had 48 hours to read all the Democrat talking points concerning this debate.
Given his financial support for Obama, I'm sure he gets the best ones.
