And if the last two debate performances from Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are any indication of what to expect during tonight’s debate, the President is going to need all the excuses he can get.
In the spirit of “Saturday Night Live,” Red Alert has pre-butted tonight’s debate with with five excuses for Obama’s bad debate performance tonight:

4. The location threw him off.
3. He was distracted by Mitt Romney’s hair

2. The Clinton Factor
Obama was too busy brainstorming ways to throw Hillary Clinton under the bus over the Libya attack to fully listen to questions from the audience.
1. Holy Smokes, Batman!
Whoever poisoned Joe Biden’s holding room last week with laughing gas has struck again! Somebody call Batman!
