I see something a bit different. Obama seldomly engages Romney, much more time/eye contact with Jim Lehrer and directly with the camera. I do this quite often in meetings with people who I have no respect for and am planning on dropping a bomb on.
Let them have their say, let them state their case, then just pummel them with reality.
If you do it early people believe you are picking on them and have an axe to grind. If you allow them to make their case then kick there ass you have a much greater buy in.

In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

The next debate is going to be much more intense. Obama has to score a knockout, or he will be toast, so he is going to double-down on his strategy of demonizing Romney, but it will not work. Romney came off as informed, passionate and decent. He's not the ogre that the media is trying to present. Obama came off as defensive, unfocused and weaker. He's not the stellar statesman that the media is trying to present. The winner last night was Romney, and the losers were Obama and the mainstream media, which couldn't protect him.--Odysseus

Rufus dog made that whole thing up. A person doesn't not make I contact for several reasons and none of them have to do with having no respect for the other person. It is usually an unconscious behavior of submission or an unconscious effort to hide something. To have no respect for someone is to be fearless in staring them down.
These are generalizations of course but I think they hold more water than the "I don't respect them" excuse. The OP is trying to make the other DUers fell better about Obama's disappointing performance.
