Why Obama Lost
Daily Beast, by David Frum

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 10/4/2012 8:38:28 AM

Mitt Romney dominated and Barack Obama stumbled in Denver Wednesday night. What went right for Romney and wrong for the president? These things: Romney arrived with a strategic plan; Obama didn’t. Romney was quick on his feet; Obama slow on his feet. Romney showed EQ as well as IQ; Obama didn’t. Let's take them in reverse order. Emotional Intelligence vs. Plain Old Intelligence. Romney, the multimillionaire, arrived in a suit, shirt and tie that looked like they’d been purchased at Macy’s. I doubt he’ll ever wear them again, but for one night, he looked the way most non-zillionaires look when they dress for business.

It was simple as free markets versus marxism.

Obama is spending the morning scouring his Obamacare package to see if it covers asswhippings.

Fianlly America can see the Emperor truly has no clothes. To comment on Romney's suit is classic mental disease from a liberal. Romney could have shown up in jeans and whooped Obama. Obama has gotten a free ride all his life and borrowing from Alfred E. Neumann, Obama didn't prepare at all...."what, me work?"

Poor David is trying to figure out why his Obamessiah was so lame last night.

I've got news for you, David. Your guy just isn't that smart. Absent a fawning press helping him and his trusty teleprompter, he is about as knowledgeable about the economy as the local WalMart greeter.
Maybe, as an Affirmative Action concession, we should allow Axelrod to prepare the questions and Obama to use his teleprompter for the next debate.

David Frum...former Republican...turned sour puss democrat lover. Non-relevant person if I ever saw one. I could care less what he thought of Romney's suit. I thought he looked great, but as #4 said, it really didn't matter what he wore, he still would have whipped Obama, hands down!

Hi David, just wanted to let you know that there were many of us that had to listen to the audio of the debate and weren't able to see the Macy's suit you refer to. That said, your guy still lost. Optics be darned, facts are facts. Your guy is not entitled to his own facts. I saw the photos this morning and your guy did look nice however, except for that perpetual smirk/scowl thing he had going on. Did that come from Macy's?

A flaming Obot scrambling around trying to find the pony.

I wouldn't be surprised to hear some of the lines he's trying to feed to The Once turning up in the next debate. Except that it won't be on the economy. Oh, woe.

The only thing dumber than this pathetic piece is Albore's contention that it was the altitude in Denver that dulled Obama.

I'd say it was his ignorance of the facts required to run his office and the absence of a teleprompter, which could only have fed him what he already had: A bunch of loose talking points from which he had to try to pull a few that fit the topic.

David offers more non sequiturs and spin like this about Romney needing a new accountant "He’s got you paying a lower tax rate than the White House cleaning staff!"

Of course there is an easy answer. "Well, Mr. President, if you understood our economy you would know that we encourage people to invest in business by providing a favorable tax rate when they do. Those investments generate business and jobs. That's what I do with my money, invest it into the economy to create jobs. It's similar to the way that people put money into a savings account and it is made available for people to borrow for things like mortgages. That's how our economy works Mr. President."

Liberals like David and BO are clueless about the whole process so are prime to sounding stupid, as BO found out last night.

During the debate, did I hear correctly that the pResident used Lincoln (continental railroad) and Eisenhower (interstate highway system) as models of bold vision projects (by Republicans) on par with Johnson's Great Society? Is he equating Obamacare with those projects?

Did either of the first two projects approach $16 billion, with results still not obvious? I would love to see the equivalent $$/percentage of GDP comparisons.

Mr. Gore:
The altitude in Denver is Zero.

The ELEVATION is 5,280' +-.

No matter where you are standing you have zero altitude unless you are above ground level.

Words matter.

Let me get this straight. Obama lost because:

1. Romney wore a cheaper suit than he did?
2. He looked down instead of the at Romney?
3. He wasn't as warm and engaging as Romney?
4. He allowed Romney to confuse him with facts?
5. Romney has a "Hugely unpopular economic plan?

It couldn't have had anything to do with the fact that 60% of the American people don't want Obamacare or that his stimulus solution to the economy hasn't worked the last three times he tried it, so he's going to try it again or because the economy in general is in a death spiral of his making or that he hasn't got a clue as to how to conduct foreign policy or people are tired of the Chicago style corruption of his regime. Nah, it couldn't be any of those things.

Obama and minions have spent the last few years creating inside their pea sized brains a Romney that doesn't exist. They believe their own lies.
So, the REAL Romney shows up to debate, laying out the arena of conservative ideas, and Marxism has nothing to argue. Without lies, the democrats have nothing.

Didn't Mrs Romney say she bought some of his dress shirts at Costco? I don't think the Romney's are all that concerned about where they buy their clothes or which designer they are wearing. I suspect they are more concerned about getting value for their money. That would be nice to have in a President, in my opinion, and something we don't have now.

The Worst Wing- How the East Wing

New Republic, by Reid Cherlin    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 3/25/2014 9:13:32 AM     Post Reply
In the fall of 2010, the nasty midterms drawing to a close, Michelle Obama was contemplating her next move. Two years into her tenure as first lady, the breathless fixation on guest lists and china selections was subsiding into routine, and she wanted a plan for the rest of her husband’s time in office. Of course, her calendar would never lack for National Hostess duties—the obligatory social functions outlined in binders left by Laura Bush’s team. She had already launched Let’s Move!, the childhood obesity initiative, and Joining Forces, a program to help military families and veterans, was also in

New York Soon to

ALBANY — New York, whose status as the most populous state has long been ceded, will soon fall behind Florida into fourth place, a long-anticipated drop that is rife with symbolism and that could carry potentially serious economic consequences in coming years. When the Census Bureau releases its latest population estimates on Monday, demographers expect that Florida and New York will be narrowly separated — perhaps by as little as a few thousand people — and that if Florida does not pass New York this time, it almost certainly will do so in 2014. The census figures underscore immigration trends, as foreign-born migrants continue to

The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News

The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be

When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.

It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city. "I´m going to be a successful mayor because of it, because it´s going to give me a level of independence," he told the Advance in an exclusive interview. "I´m not constructing a campaign around the approval of my peers. I´m constructing a campaign around the aspirations of my neighbors."

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
