Why was President Obama
so bad?

Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 10/4/2012 6:36:15 PM

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?

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.

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!

In 90-minutes, BHO made Clint Eastwood's day!

And mine!!!

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.

Why was he so bad? Several simple (and pretty obvious) reasons:

1. Arrogance. Thinking it was in the bag, Obama didn't bother to prepare.

2. Laziness. Obama didn't really want to prepare and laziness reinforced arrogance.

3. Not smart. Obama has perfectly average intelligence, maybe in the 115-125 IQ range.

4. Doesn't read. Thinking he knows it all already, Obama doesn't update his mental maps or add to his store of knowledge.

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.

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.

Kafir

PS: Forever to be known as ‘The epitome of the Peter Principle’.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

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'

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.
