As the whoppers tumbled from his smiling lips, Pinocchio Romney’s nose grew so long that it was practically poking out the eye of his mournful opponent. But even had it struck raw cornea, the president would have politely removed the intruding proboscis to say, “Governor Romney, I probably agree that the nation could do with a good eye watering, though we disagree on the manner in which it would be administered,” or some such snappy retort. Quick! Somebody call the Rejoinder-Implant Service before it’s too late! Which it already may be.
This guy Simon takes Obama talking points and then some. I don't think this professor of art history is someone who could understand what Romney said, so instead of trying to understand he just calls Romney a liar.
Yeah, yada, yada, Romney lied. That's all you've got? Well, that line/lyin' ain't working any more, Professor. To the willfully blind people like you, inconvenient truths are lies. How sad to be so self-delusional.
Obama didn't suddenly "throw it all away" during the debate. He's been throwing it all away for 4 long years and millions of people are finally getting a glimpse of the real person behind the carefully-crafted media facade.
Let's suppose that Romney was better practiced and better prepared, etc., that Obama and that is why he won the debate. What does that say about the candidates? Just what John Sununu told Andrea Mitchell: Obama is lazy and detached and Romney is engaged. It's time for Obama to go.
Axelgrease has announced to the media that the new strategery is to call Romney & Ryan liars. So far they've all dutifully fallen in line. Being called a liar by the party of liars? Doesn't that negate the charge?
I've been laboring under the delusion for a long time that Obama's "handlers" have been feeding him the lines.
True, but I learned yesterday that OB, Ax, Ploufe and a few others hit on the "Romney Lies" meme that they will use from now on in the campaign. Beautiful that they telegraphed this to us and Mitt's campaign.
Gee Mr Perfesser, you forgot to throw in the use of the word 'boys' when you referenced the Governor's line about his sons attempts to lie to him. Think of the impact your whining could create if you could have just pushed some ,uh, race to the top of your bucket of warmed-over intellectual swill.
Not just poor analysis, but staggeringly bad writing. Enough with the Pinnochio comparison. Let's understand the professor's most basic belief, that democrats represent fairness, integrity, and competence. Where did that come from? When the books are written on the current administration, those three tenets will not be included in the titles. Rather, we will understand that the most basic belief of dems is, "whatever it takes." airness, integrity and competence be damned.
Schama Wow!! It works real hard to clean up messes left by failed and stumbling presidents. Yes folks, for just $19.95 (plus S&H), you, too can have your very own Schama. And, as a special, introductory offer, if you call right now, we add a second Schama for only the cost of S&H. Two Schama Wows for the price of one!!!
The author suffers from the same plague Obama does; as an historian he spouts any theories he chooses, without real time vetting.
When Obama’s talking points were immediately and adroitly parried, he was left standing mute with no counter, because no one had ever done that to him before. in his cozy Media-shieled cocoon, the Obama storybook man had never been tempered by mano a mano debate.
While Romney did what he had practiced over years of business presentations, withdraw to a quiet place with his cadre of high-octane advisors and master his material, Obama dallied with celebrities and dawdled listlessly on his prep at a Las Vegas resort. Someone in his camp missed the old truth that you fight like you train.
And the sad fact for the Democrats is, there is no time left to train some competence into their boy. The next two Presidential Commision debates are a spectre of horror looming over pummeled president.
Ya gotta laugh at the stupidity of the libtards. For months, the Dems have been plastering the media with a false caricature of Romney--he wants to poison our water, give money to Wall Street, raise taxes on the poor, end Medicare, etc... AND THESE IDIOTS BELIEVED THEIR OWN PROPAGANDA! Then we have a debate where Obama can't confront Romney face-to-face with these blatant lies without being called out. And Romney systematically trashes the Dems' made-up lies about him. And they now call Romney a liar for not living up to the lies they made about him? Seriously, these people are a waste of oxygen.
Remember the "Bush lied, People died" meme that floated around for years. That the leftist accusers always accuse the Conservatives of doing exactly what they are doing, in spades, is a tell. It's like the little kid yelling "Mom, Jimmy is eating cookies' to cover up that HE's eating the cookies.
Why won't the left admit the won is nothing without his teleprompter notes written by someone else???? On the campaign trail he does the same teleprompter speech. Funny, I didn't her the left complain when Univision ask the won real questions.
The Texas Republican Party is reopening the filing period for Rep. Steve Stockman´s (R-Texas) congressional district after his last-second decision to run instead against Sen. John Cornyn (R). Stockman filed for Cornyn´s seat rather than reelection just minutes before the state´s legal filing deadline Monday night, giving aspiring politicians in the district no heads up that he was doing so. The party´s move gives candidates an additional week, with the new filing deadline set for next Monday. Texas Republican Party spokesman Spencer Yeldell said the party was reopening the filing because it´s required by Texas´s election code. Stockman is facing a steep uphill
Hill staffers that signed up for ObamaCare through the Washington, D.C., healthcare exchange, called DC Health Link (DCHL), are being told to confirm their enrollments in person, and not to rely on data provided by the website. The Hill obtained an email sent to staffers on Wednesday warning them that “it is essential that you confirm your coverage in DCHL through the Disbursing Office.” “Do not rely on your ‘My Account’ page or other correspondence from DCHL,” the email reads. “Please do not assume you are covered unless you have seen the confirmation letter from the Disbursing Office,” the email continues. Hill workers had
The Obama administration expedited visa applications for about two dozen foreign investors for a Las Vegas casino hotel after pressure from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his staff, the Washington Times reported Tuesday. The Times, citing internal government documents, said the decision to overturn a prior, normally non-appealable visa decision ultimately benefited several companies whose executives have been heavy Democratic donors. The paper said it also came despite concerns about “suspicious financial activity” involving some Asian applicants. Reid, who represents Nevada, personally reached out to the top official at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Alejandro Mayorkas, setting in motion a process that
California’s budding doctor rebellion against Obamacare appears to be genuinely spontaneous, lacking leadership from a single individual or organization. As the Washington Examiner has reported in recent days, an estimated 70 percent of California´s physicians -- ranging from general practitioners to specialists -- are "just saying no" to Obamacare´s Covered California health insurance exchange. Although it appears leaderless, some observers believe that very spontaneity may make the doctor rebellion a formidable force in California’s health-care future. “Doctors are realizing what is happening and spontaneously they are acting like this. There’s a movement growing,” said Sally Pipes, president of the San Francisco-based
Democrats make a lot of silly statements. The trick isn’t finding a pronouncement by a liberal politician which — in a way nearly unique to politics — simultaneously brings a grimace, a giggle, and a groan, but figuring out whether the speaker is an outright liar or just living in a liberal echo chamber reminiscent of Pauline Kael (or at least the political mythology surrounding her). Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is a reliable representative of the outright liar camp: No echo is loud enough to make her actually believe that Democratic candidates will
It’s long been said that Democrats and their supporters who cry “racism!” at everything that smells like opposition to their left-wing agenda are misguided, or in some cases, smear merchants who lack all credibility whatsoever (looking at you, MSNBC). Well, get a load of the T-shirt that this recently departed national figure – whose impeccable left-wing bonafides should never be doubted – has on:(Snip for photo)That’s anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela wearing a T-shirt that endorses getting an ID and voting in 1998. We’ll anxiously be waiting your apology. Oh wait, you won’t apologize, will you?
No, Obamacare isn’t Katrina for Democrats. Katrina was an act of God and/or nature, a phenomenon beyond the control of mere human beings, a catastrophe not of choice, but of nature’s necessity, outside the realm of man’s will. George W. Bush didn’t cause it to happen, nothing he did could have made it not happen, and he surely did not make it worse. The federal response wasn’t inspired, but the reason this mattered was that the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisiana were not only perhaps the two stupidest people ever to hold public office, but the stupidest people
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
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
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
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
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
