Was it a lack of a teleprompter,
poor body language, or 'the smirk'
now being mocked by the GOP
in new video? Why Obama failed

Daily Mail [UK], by Hugo Gye

As the Obama campaign goes into damage-control mode following the President's disappointing performance in last night's first debate, questions have been raised over why the incumbent was unable to meet expectations and defeat Mitt Romney in the head-to-head clash. Suggestions for Mr Obama's failure in Denver have ranged from poor body language to a lack of preparation--to the absence of his trusty teleprompter. Democratic campaign bosses have acknowledged that presentation is 'not the President's strong suit', but failed to account for his undercooked performance. Former Vice President Al Gore, no stranger to high-profile debates, claimed that Mr Obama was disadvantaged

Comments:
"Undercooked performance." I like that. Yes, that was it.

The OBVIOUS and correct answer as to "why" is simple. Obama is not now, nor has he ever been up to the task. Four and a half years of the media carrying Obama's water and covering for his incompetence, ignorance, arrogance and laziness couldn't help him when its just him and his opponent.

In the words of Londo Molari ...... arrogance and stupidity all in one package. How efficient.

Every piece on the debate brings up the point of Obama looking down at the podium and what a mistake that was. On Rush Limbaugh's show today he asked why Obama would do that and had his theory. The answer is simple. It is nothing new for Obama. Hs a very polite humble man and has the habit of bowing when he meets people, but especially heads of state.

He is not going to get smarter between now and October 16. It was a myth that he was smart, but he just is not and he is lazy. He is the Affirmative Action President. You could lock him in a room from now until the next debate and he would not be able to understand or remember what he needs to say. Sorry - he is a dope!

I hear that the cost for the tele-prompters and crew is several million annually for President Obidiot. Like to know if any the other presidents spent this much on these special aids for low mentality speakers.

Oh, for heaven's sake. How dumb are these people for even asking these sort of handwringing questions!

If they want to salvage whatever positive feelings people have for them, they had better wake up...quick.

Of course, they won't (or they would have before).

They thought they hitched their wagons to a star. They hitched them to a plain, old....jackass.

What Poster #4 expressed has crossed my mind, also.

My personal belief is that 0bit is a cocaine addict; I think he's high pretty often. I also believe he a pretty big drinker. I've wondered, after seeing him, if his toadies had given him something to bring him down from a cocaine high, or perhaps had withheld cocaine to keep him from appearing high. Something was entirely off in his demeanor last night.

#3, the Telegraph did NOT say Romney lost. In fact, I just posted an editorial highly complimentary to Romney. What you read was the header of ONE article by the paper's token left-wing idiot. The T is a conservative newspaper and provides us with great conservative writers like Janet Daley, Christopher Booker, James Delingpole and many others. Toby Harnden was the T's American editor until he went to the Daily Mail earlier this year.

I wonder if #4 and #11 hit the proverbial nail on the head. Something in his manner is just not normal, health wise that is. The tiny select group in his sphere must be keeping a lot of health secrets. Will O. release his health report , or will it be a faux report the same as the last one?

I agree with # 4

Is he going to play victim again ? The high altitude excuse was a good one.

Anybody check for bruises today ? Mooche wasn't happy when she led him off the stage.

Asian pollution is causing a ´dramatic´

America say scientists

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

Russia Spent More of Its Wealth

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

´Up to 11 killed´ as soldiers loyal
to Kiev seize eastern Ukrainian
airport from pro-Russian separatist
as ´anti-terror operation´ begins
Daily Mail [UK], by Simon Tomlinson, Damien Gayle    Original Article

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Daphne du Maurier ´overlooked´

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

2014 dawns as the BLOOD MOON rises

A total lunar eclipse will turn the moon a dark blood red tonight. Just after Mars reaches its closest point to earth in six years, a distance of a mere 57.4 million miles, a total lunar eclipse will spectacularly change the colour of the moon. But don´t get too twitchy with the curtains in the early hours--only people in north and south America will be able to see it with the naked eye. If you live in the UK, mainland Europe or most of the rest of the world by far your best chance of seeing the eclipse is right

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
