The Barack Obama who stood on the debate stage in Denver Wednesday night was virtually unrecognizable to the person who swept to victory in 2008 or even the man who had built a narrow-but-clear edge in the 2012 race. In the wake of the debate, Democrats conceded that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney had dominated the proceedings and quickly moved on to a deeper — and harder to answer — question: What the hell was wrong with the president? Theories abound — up to an including that Obama, who had done debate prep in Las Vegas, struggled to
FTA: "Obama is, without question, the most gifted speaker in politics right now." Why do people keep rolling out that stale, stinky piece of trash? Says who, Chris? You and your Dem-loving buddies? Seriously? Half the speakers at the Republican National Convention were clearly better at the podium, and they didn't feel the need to pander with some urban jive-talkin' either. Sheesh, can't we get past this lie?
Rhetorical question, right? He was so bad because he is a POS. He is the Manchurian Candidate, a fake person on the end of a lot of strings. Hard to make him more than that without all the props, teleprompters, paid mobs, etc.
The truth is slowly starting to dawn on some but by no means all Obama fans. It is strikingly simple - but for them it is terrible as an army with banners: Obama is really nothing but a gifted BS artist. They have been deceived. He is a mixture of a Toastmaster and a run of the mill rabble rouser who SOUNDS like he knows what he is talking about(to some people anyway) - but it turns out he is nothing but hot air when challenged. His world view and politics, like those of most Leftists, are simply sophomoric, the attitudes and ideals of a late adolescent without significant experience of life. Like other Leftists, he dwells in a fantasy world that he considers infinitely superior to the real world of flesh and blood with all of its limitations and contradictions. The media made him president and propped him up and shielded him as long as they could. They could not save him last night. They cannot save him now, though they will certainly try. Humpty Dumpy fell off a wall, and all the King's men cannot put him together again.
After the debate, the Øtard went running into the arms of Reggie Love who consoled him until the wee hours. Mooch went home and ate her half-side of Waygu cow midnight snack. And Joey Biden kept wondering when someone would let him out of the shed.
This is a B.S. article and they know it. O'Bozo got full three minutes to spew his garbage than Mitt. That he could not capitalize on that is not Lehrer's fault. Zippy met more than his match for the first time and came apart like a cheap sweater. No navel gazing is necessary.
Obama just goes out and throws lies about his opponent out there. Last night, he was not allowed to get away with it. Today he was back on the trail of lies. Obama stated that Romney said "we don't need more teachers". 60 million people watched the debate, can anyone recall Romney saying that? He used the same old tired 5 trillion in tax cuts for the rich. See what I mean? Didn't Obama pay attention last night..and the dumb masses eat this crap up.
In his four-years as POTUS, BHO has discovered that the presidency requires more than voting "present." His narcissism carried him only so far, even with his chorus of the main stream media. Standing alone on a stage, facing a man of accomplishment in both academics and business, he allowed the nation to see just how shallow are his ideas, his intelligence and his oratory. He allowed the nation to see the vacuum of his intellect and the sham of his presidency.
Standing alone on that stage, facing Mitt Romney, BHO needed only his cell-phone ~ to call 911!
What people witnessed was the destruction of an illusion. Obama was never a great orator, just a good reader. This was the first occasion where he was matched against a competent debater and he failed miserably. In the "town hall" setting that everybody is waiting for, Obama will do just as badly. He is not a president and it showed. It would not have mattered if he had spent more time practicing with the other liar (JF'N Kerry) instead of playing golf for three days. He just doesn't have it.
CNN and CBS will be gunning for Romney in the next two debates. Expect those gotcha questions like "would you support taking birth control from college women?" from the start. The networks are no doubt meeting in secret to frame a strategy.
It's the narcissism. They have huge feelings of entitlemwnt (like they are just going to be handed the debate-like he was they presidency) and they suffer from extremely limited self-definition. (As in, he thinks he's the greatest, no matter what the truth is....)
Adds up to real loser against someone who has a high level of competency.
Speaking of which...exactly what does this say about John McCain???
The simple answer is that Obama isn't a real leader but an actor that plays the role of presidend hired by Soros-types on the sidelines to bring about the radical change on America that these shadowy figures want but cannot accomplish openly.
Only difference is a real actor has the insight that he is only mimicking the real thing, whereas Obama himself thinks he is a great leader. If pride goes before a fall, Obama is going to find himself falling.. and falling... in a seemlessly bottomless abyss.
“No, I’m not a President but I slept in a White House last night.”
Along with being an arrogant empty suit, I believe he is suffering from depression and really doesn’t want four more years of being knocked around by a GOP House along with a new GOP Senate.
I also think their internal poll numbers show that they have no chance of winning without an October-Surprise or a major FUBAR by Romney and to depend on either is a crap shoot.
His and the Wookie’s expressions on stage last night show they are both down and dejected.
It’s one thing to rabble-rouse and race-bait and tell lies in front of a bunch of adoring losers but something totally different to act Presidential in front of 65+ million Americans where 35 million really don’t like you.
PS: Forever to be known as ‘The epitome of the Peter Principle’.
Shame on the DNC and MSM for foisting this less than mediocre, unqualified slacker on America. Reality caught up to this big nothing Wednesday night. Obama is a racist, a socialist and definitely not good for America.
Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,
Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.
The victim in an early morning shooting in Walker County has been identified as Ronald Westbrook, a 72-year-old Alzheimer´s patient. Westbrook was shot outside the home of Joe Hendricks on Cottage Crest Court about 4 am. Westbrook lived about two-and-a-half miles from where he was shot and had apparently wandered away from home. Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. The sheriff said Hendricks heard a suspicious sound outside the house and called 911.
The sister of a U.S. marine stabbed to death by a British man in Thailand said she hopes ´someone kills him slowly and painfully in prison´ as the killer was today jailed for 25 years. Lee Aldhouse, 30, from Birmingham, known as ´Pitbull´ in Muay Thai kickboxing circles, pleaded guilty to the murder of 23-year-old Dashawn Longfellow in an attempt to avoid execution or life in jail. (Snip) Aldhouse admitted murdering Mr Longfellow, a decorated veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, after a fight in a bar in the seaside resort of Rawai, on southern tip of the island
George Zimmerman was arrested Monday after he cocked and pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend, shattered a glass-top table then pushed her out of the house and barricaded himself inside after she ordered him to move out, according to the Seminole County Sheriff´s Office. He surrendered peacefully a few minutes later and was hauled off to jail, where he was being held without bail on domestic violence and aggravated assault charges. It was the second time in three months that the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer, who was acquitted of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, was handcuffed after being accused of domestic
A Georgia restaurant owner has been ordered to remove the patriotic flags flying above his eatery, Fox 5 Atlanta reported. Darren Miller, owner of CJ’s Hot Dogs in McDonough, was cited on Friday by a code enforcement officer for flying flags above his restaurant that honor the military.The restaurant, Fox 5 reports, is dedicated to police officers, firefighters and those serving in the military and Miller says it’s his right to pay tribute to each group -- both inside and outside his restaurant. Three months ago, Miller put up the American flag, the Georgia state flag and banners for every
During an interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl for “This Week,” Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker — while offering praise for his GOP colleagues — dismissed Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rand Paul, Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Paul Ryan as the ideal 2016 Republican presidential nominee. “I think it’s got to be an outsider. I think both the presidential and the vice presidential nominee should either be a former or current governor, people who have done successful things in their states, who have taken on big reforms, who are ready to move America forward,” Walker responded when asked by Karl to
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
