In his defense, George Costanza did once discover a winning formula for himself.
Debate fallout: is President Obama swiping tactics from George Costanza?
Obama has released several statements during the last few days calling Romney out on every supposed falsehood that he may have stated during the debate. But many pundits have said that this tactic, as proven by George Costanza in The Comeback, is too little and too late.
In the Seinfeld episode, Costanza gets made fun of for eating too much shrimp during a work meeting. But he comes up with the perfect comeback… after he leaves the office and no one is around to hear it.
And then when he does manage to use it in front of others, it still backfires:
I wonder if Obama will also adopt Costanza’s “do the opposite” strategy?
At this point, it couldn’t hurt!
