Keeler: Where was President Barack Obama during the first debate?
This was not the Barack Obama who famously said, "I'm LeBron, baby," brimming with overconfidence before his 2004 speech.
This was not the sharp-elbowed Obama who would never be described as a soft player on the basketball court.
This was some other guy who simply lacked fire.
If the FBI is not busy in Benghazi, they should be checking out the abduction of the president.
