Gore Blames Altitude for
Obama's Debate Woes

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 10/4/2012 8:45:01 AM

"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.

Yeah Al, he should have debated from the presidential oxygen tent, but Valerie Jarrett forgot to pack it.

Oh well, perhaps for the next debate he can wear shoulder pads and get made up like Ronald Regan like you did and walk around the stage breathing into Romney's face, you big dope.

Altitude doesn't seem to bother Obama for fundraising or teleprompting during his Greek column event in 2008. Lack of air? No. More like lack of ideas, lack of facts, lack of logic, lack of soul.

Obama is a total, 100%, red-diaper fraud.

Algore is just plain wrong. Didn't Obama spend three or four days at a posh resort with a fabulous golf course? I saw photos over the weekend. It was a Westin like the one in Scottsdale.

There was no altitude problem...Snarky just coming down off some drugs he'd been using...and actual altitude had nothing to do with it.

Now what else can I add to the list?

The Oval Office is at or near sea-level Al - so how do you explain Obama's performance over the last 4 years?

Personally, I think that Obama was distracted by reports of ManBearPig sightings in the Denver area.

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.

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.

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.

O and his groupies have spent so many vacations in Aspen (nearly twice Denver's altitude), maybe it was the LOWER altitude that gave him the bends.

Also, I wonder how the majority of his Colorado supporters (who happen to live in Denver) will take to their fair city being blamed for his lousy performance.

Banana Republicans: New Head Of
Virginia GOP on Eric Cantor’s Payroll
PJ Media, by David Steinberg    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 4/15/2014 3:11:20 PM     Post Reply
On a local website co-managed by Shaun Kenney, the newly appointed executive director of the Virginia GOP, a colleague of Kenney’s admitted last night that Kenney’s political fundraising and consulting firm is employed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Cantor is now campaigning to retain his seat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Cantor’s challenger for the GOP primary on June 10 — Dave Brat — is politically on Cantor’s right, and is thus receiving national interest from conservative/Tea Party groups that are disappointed with Cantor’s record as majority leader. The magnitude of the revelation can not be overstated: GOP voters

DENVER – Denver Public Schools administrators believe they are the first school district in the nation to actively seek out people who were initially brought to the United States illegally to now teach in the classroom.

U.S. Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine, said he’s considering caucusing with Republicans if they win a majority of seats in the Senate during the midterm elections. Shortly after he voted with Republicans on Wednesday against the Paycheck Fairness Act, a piece of legislation that Democrats have prioritized ahead of the November elections, King was asked whether he might align with Republicans. Since he was elected in 2012, the two-term Maine governor has caucused with Democrats and voted with them on most issues. “I’ll make my decision at the time based on what I think is best for Maine,”

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status.

The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

The U.S. trade deficit climbed to the highest level in five months in February as demand for American exports fell while imports increased slightly.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
