"Obama arrived in Denver at 2 p.m. today — just a few hours before the debate started," Gore said on his network, Current. "Romney did his debate prep in Denver. When you go to 5,000 feet, and you only have a few hours to adjust, I don't know..." "The president had an off night," a pundit on the liberal network said.
Comments: Wow. WOW. What can I say?
Staff: that's the entire article, but it includes a video snip.
Gosh, I woulda expected that even if Dear Leader(US)'s belt broke and his pants fell to the floor, and he heaved a booger at Lehrer, the media whores would have still called this an amazingly effective performance.
Even listening to Serpent Head Carville bash Obama, well, I figured that his loyalties were with the Clintons so that he had no compunction in saying the emperor wore no clothes.
And I think that Romney did okay, nothing spectacular, but Obama did so, so, so poorly, it looks like a home run.
My guess is Candy Crowley is getting her instructions right now for the next show. "Don't let Obama look bad if youse knows whats good for yas," says Ma Cutter from the campaign.
Let's see. Let's see. What ELSE can we blame on the climate? Ah yes, that annoying little problem in Libya, poor unemployment numbers, and small crowds at Ozippo's campaign rallies. Oh, and how much money people are willing to donate to O this year.
Now what else can I add to the list?
Gore, you're a fool, but keep talking--you're making somebody somewhere look like a genius!
Earlier today I wondered out loud if some broken down leftist would blame Obama's juvelile debate performance on the altitude, and Al Goresh didn't disappoint. I guess this means that the Lightworker (with the light daily workload) and the Linebacker won't be joining the Mile High Club anytime soon. You know Zippy'd be there if he had Reggie, though.
For the most uncompromising and entertaining look at the "debate" go to Kevin DuJan's post-debate commentary at Hillbuzz.org. He thinks that one of the two participants is coming down off hard drugs. Since good Mormons don't do drugs (or alcohol or even caffeine), that kind of narrows it down.
Denver's so high up I wonder how people manage to drive from Kansas to Denver and still navigate I-70? How do thousands of airline passengers fly into Denver and actually find their way to where they're going? I give Gore 1 point for imagination.
AlGore seems to have forgotten that Barack was in Vegas "prepping" for the debate, at anywhere from 2200-2500 feet above sea level. So, his entire increase was around 2500 feet. No way it made a difference despite what the ManBearPig might believe in his scientifically challenged world.
While I don't think altitude is any kind of excuse, I do know that I get terrible altitude sickness whenever I go to Denver, Santa Fe, etc. Romney arrived in Denver three days before the debates while zippy flew in at the last minute. Bad planning on the 0bama team if they didn't take the altitude into consideration.
My, my, but algore is off his game. He could've hit a homerun and explained why global warming was the cause of hussein's dismal night, which in turn would prove AGW existed! And how, you may ask yourself, could this be so?
Simple, due to global warming (the manmade stuff, of course) the water on hussein's brain rose to such a level he couldn't think straight! QED baby!
algore has never had to worry about altitude sickness himself as on functioning brain cell has little in the way of oxygen requirements. The only thing that might have affected 0bama's performance wasn't the altitude but was all those choom fumes over the years.
LOS ANGELES – Federal officials on Monday unsealed five criminal cases filed against 18 current and former Los Angeles County sheriff´s deputies as part of an FBI investigation into allegations of civil rights abuses and corruption in the nation´s largest jail system. The charges were announced at a press conference after 16 of 18 defendants were arrested earlier in the day. They were expected to be arraigned later in U.S. District Court. (Snip) One federal indictment filed Nov. 20 named seven deputies charged with conspiracy and obstruction of justice. It is unclear from the indictment whether they are currently employed
Skiers and snowboarders searching for "the steep and deep" this winter may find the concept has taken on a much less appealing connotation: The price of the sport is getting so steep that some believe it may be becoming the exclusive domain of those whose pockets are exceedingly deep. "You have the haves and the have mores," said Douglas Quinby, principal analyst at PhoCusWright, which conducts market research on the travel industry. (Snip)Skiing, of course, has never been considered an inexpensive activity, but the sport has seen a significant upward shift in visitor demographics in recent years.
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
The newly-unveiled uniforms for the U.S. Olympic snowboarding team are star-spangled and red, white and blue — but they´re not made in America. The hodgepodge design, which designer Burton Snowboards says was inspired by a vintage quilt, features the faded colors of Old Glory and stars on the shoulder, base-layer henleys, hats and gloves. But like Ralph Lauren, which designed U.S. Olympic gear for the 2012 games in London, Vermont-based Burton is now defending its decision to use a global set of vendors to complete the job ahead of the Sochi Games, which begin on Feb. 7.
New York - Did stores shoot themselves in the foot? Target, Macy´s and other retailers offered holiday discounts in early November and opened stores on Thanksgiving Day. It was an effort to attract shoppers before Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving that traditionally kicks off the holiday shopping season. Those tactics drew bigger crowds, but failed to motivate Americans to spend. A record 141 million people are expected to shop in stores and online over the four-day Thanksgiving weekend that ends Sunday, up from last year´s 137 million, according to the results of a survey of nearly 4,500 shoppers
Janet Yellen moved one step closer to becoming the next chair of the Federal Reserve, after the Senate Banking Committee voted to move her nomination forward for a full Senate vote. The committee voted 14-8 to send Yellen´s nomination on for consideration before the full Senate. That vote on the Senate floor has not yet been scheduled, but is expected to occur in early December. Three Republicans joined Democrats on the committee in voting in favor of Yellen: Bob Corker of Tennessee, Mark Kirk of Illinois and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma. Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia was the only
LAS VEGAS — A U.S. Navy sailor told his high school sweetheart he wanted to marry her the moment he laid eyes on her after an 11-month deployment off the coast of war-torn Syria. Seaman Apprentice Dylan Ruffer got his wish Tuesday shortly after stepping off a plane at Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Ruffer and Madison Meinhardt, both 19, tied the knot just after midnight under a tulle-covered arch in front of the arrivals escalators. More than 200 invited guests, passengers and others looked on. "Seeing her for the first time, it was amazing," Ruffer told reporters. A reception followed
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
