President Obama seemed distracted and disconnected during last week’s debate with Gov. Romney. He kept scribbling stuff on a notepad. Well, you can stop wondering what was up because I have the answer: Mr. Obama was doing a crossword puzzle–probably the New York Times, or the L.A. Times. Romney’s blathering inadvertently triggered some answers–just not the ones the nation wanted.
As someone obsessed with crosswords in the past (I’m now crossword-free, thank God), I completely empathize with POTUS’ predicament. He’ll do better next time.
