Recently, on MSNBC's Morning Joe show, there was this discussion:
Let me also say that you can see this attitude in the speeches being given by Obama and Biden. For the President smoothness is being replaced with anger and hardness. The same is true with Biden. I personally think that Team Obama is infuriated over the fact that they spent a summer and millions attacking Romney and they have been unable to move the needle in any positive way for themselves, nor have they significantly moved it against Romney. I also think the Ryan appointment took them all by surprise. Now, they're being forced to talk about high debt and spending without a resulting improvement in the economy or jobs.
