Last night, I finished watching the Romney/Obama debate, ate a bowl of ice cream in a daze, and was about to go to bed when I got an email from the President: SUBJECT: Hey David — I hope I made you proud out there explaining the vision we share for this country. Now we need to go win this election -- the most important thing that will happen tonight is what you do (or don’t do) to help in the little time we have left: https://contribute.barackobama.com/ Thank you, Barack Usually I love getting chatty emails from the most powerful man on earth.
The comments after this article are amazing. It's as if leftists don't want jobs, or have a house that they might have wanted to put on the market for the last 4 years, or care about the horrendous debt their children are going to be saddled with.
They want Obama, and they cannot listen to reason.
I love the ones from the people who have convinced themselves that Obama's dismal performance was a deliberate "rope-a-dope" to set Romney up for a late-round knockout. That's hysterical. There's no way he or his handlers would plan to throw away the first debate, leaving that impression in the minds of voters who very well may not watch the subsequent debates.
"New Republic", eh? "New Socialist State" would be more apropos. The commenters on that site are, what I would describe in one word, DELUSIONAL.
The ONLY reason that I can think of that "the Foreign National calling himself Obama" may have had a reason for smirking while he was getting intellectually spanked by a true American adult is that he has already FIXED the election by commandeering the voting booths in the proper states (Ohio, Fla., Mich., etc).
I guess I must be a mean person because I really enjoyed reading the shared angst of the leftist commenters after the article. It was like reliving conversations with so many bitter cubicle dweller losers who imagined themselves so much more brilliant and deserving than the guys signing their paychecks, but who remained cubicle dwellers for 40 years. That goes double for the "I am woman, hear me whine" types.
The comments by the wigged-out lefties after the article are priceless.
1. Romney is a big, fat liar. Nyah, nyah 2. Romney's a nasty, abusive bully like my ex-husband, boss, pastor, [insert authority figure here] 3. Obama was so insanely clever, he blew it on purpose to energize the base.
Yeah, right...... Obama loves himself faaaaar too much to allow himself to take such a public beatdown. He simply isn't up to the job. He can only talk extemporaneously on The View or Leno. Ask him a difficult question, and he crumbles without a TelePrompTer.
Face it, David...when it comes right down to it, liberals THINK they're so much smarter than the rest of us. In reality, they're so freakin' dumb it's pathetic. As they sit in their ivory towers staring at that vision of utopia...they can be sold on anything, even a media manufactured empty suit. Obama DID bring his A game to the debate. Problem for your side is, it's been a D- game all along. Unfortunately for him, the media glossover wasn't available in this format...he had to do it on his own.
Thank you fellow posters for suggesting that I read the NR comments. The intellect of the left has really atrophied since I was a NR reader way back in my liberal days. I guess my then liberal peers have joined me in moving to the right during the Reagan years. But where did THESE people come from?
I too received Barry's e-mail after the debate but was laughing too hard to give my usual highly sarcastic answer to the likes of Michelle, Stephanie, Barry, Jim, Rufus, etc. when they get into barry-worship mode.
As for the comments after the article, it was a complete train of all the usual excuses, accusing Romney of everything from being a successful businessman to a racist.
Romney wasn't attacking skin color, he was attacking lies and stupidity. But, to them, Barry does not lie and he isn't stupid so it must have been racism.

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
A witness in the case of the murder of Venezuelan Ambassador Olga Fonseca in Kenya 2012 told a court in Nairobi on Wednesday that the diplomatic mission would use the diplomatic bag for drug-trafficking purposes. "I am aware that the embassy was used to traffic drugs using the diplomatic bag," said former embassy driver Kevin Lameck, AFP reported. Fonseca, aged 57, was found strangled to death in her residence in Nairobi in July 2012. Seven people have been accused in the case, including Dwight Sagaray, the then first secretary of the embassy. Lameck´s statement was issued during cross-examination by Sagarya´s defense Lawyer Katwa Kigen.
A group of 25 people identified as members of Colombian rebel National Liberation Army (ELN) evicted some 150 people out of a tourist resort south Táchira state, specifically in La Espuma town, southwest Venezuela, local press reported. According to newspaper El Diario de Los Andes, the troops carried rifles and were dressed in military uniforms. They kicked people out of their rooms.

Socialism: Venezuela´s President Nicolas Maduro unveiled his big plan for socialism Monday night, just as a blackout engulfed the country. Sure, it´s comical. But it´s less so upon realizing that California may see the same thing. The downward slide in Caracas is becoming more of a cautionary tale than just a freak show of Stalinist communist throwbacks run wild. In California, energy officials warn that the state and others like it face a catastrophic collapse of its power grid due to the many green energy schemes that have made managing energy flow difficult. "Energy officials worry a lot these days
Looting and robbing spread to several areas of the Argentine city of Cordoba on Tuesday evening and night following a walkout from the police in the midst of a conflict over pay and other benefits. The Supermarkets association has anticipated its members will not open their stores on Wednesday unless police forces are back patrolling the streets of Argentina´s third largest city which is also an important manufacturing pole. Television film showed mostly youngsters breaking into supermarkets and robbing food, drinks and electronics, while the stores were defenseless. Women could also be seen.
ZAGREB, CROATIA – A majority of Croatians voted in a referendum Sunday to ban gay marriages in what is a major victory for the Catholic Church-backed conservatives in the European Union´s newest nation. The state electoral commission, citing initial results, said 65 percent of those who voted answered "yes" to the referendum question: "Do you agree that marriage is matrimony between a man and a woman?" About 34 percent voted against. The result meant that Croatia´s constitution will be amended to ban same-sex marriage. The vote has deeply divided Croatia. Liberal groups have said the referendum´s question infringes on basic human rights. The
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
