Not the Man He Thought He Knew
Wall Street Journal, by James Taranto

Barack Obama has an explanation for his poor performance in Wednesday night's debate: The other guy was an impostor. "When I got onto the stage, I met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney," the president said at a Denver rally yesterday: (Snip)Jeremiah Wright and Mitt Romney are two of the most important men in Barack Obama's life, and for reasons that transcend the merely personal. His dealings with them are crucial to his relationships, respectively, with God and with his country. He called Wright his "spiritual mentor" and credited him with saving his soul;

FTA: "Obama seems to lack the basic emotional skill--surely of enormous importance to any task of political leadership--of accurately sizing up other men, whether they be allies or rivals, and of adjusting his view of them to take account of new information."

That's a great observation. But I don't think it goes far enough. He is a user and a liar. He used Jeremiah wright for political connections and cover, knowing full well what he preached ( and agreeing). He then threw him, hard, under the bus, wink wink. As to Mitt, it's all projection. He is projecting onto Romney what he is and does.

Loved the Seinfeld jerk store reference.

Given the venue of the Mile High City perhaps the stooges at his rally knew what the heck he was saying.....I surely didn't get it. But then I'm down here at sea level.

Obama demands that we believe what he is saying, no matter how much of a stretch it is.
After his empty chair performance in the debate Obama just gets harder and harder to believe.

Two weeks ago, Obama said he is "eye-candy". He really believes that and he didn't know how to act when standing next to a really handsome man. He was no longer the "prettiest" face on stage. Jealousy set in and he forgot all of his lines. LOL!

Jerimiah Wright was not thrown under the bus according to Ed Klein in the book The Ameteur.....he was well paid and prepared for the denial that came his way. O and his mentor will once again embrace.

We all know that the Obamboozler couldn't recognize the truth if it bit him in the backside. Now we see that it took him and a team of writers 14 hours to figure out what happened to the seat of his pants...

Obama should scold his handlers. It's all their fault for not giving Mitt his copy of the script. Romney is a Republican, and everybody knows Republicans are supposed to turn the other cheek and then bend over for more unmentionable mistreatment.

So now, Obama has to go out there and create ridiculous lies about Mitt to save face.
.... Wonder when they will attempt to accuse Mitt of being racist. After all, the race card is what got the man elected in the first place.

President Romney stayed on stage with his wonderful family around him....

#10, you are on a roll today. Great question you had: "Wonder when they will attempt to accuse Mitt of being racist. After all, the race card is what got the man elected in the first place."

More and more people quietly agree, but they are intimidated into silence. In other elections, most people displayed signs for their candidate or weren't too quiet about whom they were going to vote. This year is very different - I don't see many signs or bumper stickers. I substitute teach most days and worry that if I put a Romney bumper sticker on my car, I'll have some damage when I get out of school. I do look to see if there are any Obama stickers on cars, but I don't see many. It could be they are too embarrassed now.

FTA: ''[Obama] didn't show a spark of anger, even when Romney slyly found a way to call him a boy, comparing Obama's statements to the sorts of childish lies his "five boys" used to tell.
How the right's hard-core racists must have howled at that! Mitt, at long last, has secured his base.''

Another example of the derangement of the liberal mind. Took some serious pretzel-work, but the liberal moonbat managed to squeeze in the expected 'racism' crap. These people are certifiable.

Obama was never the big dog the MSM helped him play on TV.

That became painfully clear when we watched him go on stage and shrink before our eyes. On his own and confronted by a man who really is strong and confident, Obama reacted as outmatched bullies often do. He tried to make himself a smaller target. He stuck to the only "weapon" he has needed for the past four years...talking points.

Watching Romney take down the president and the MSM at the same time was the best thing I've seen on TV in a long time.

#13....I don't put a Romney-Ryan sticker on my car for the same reason. In my travels around the DC metro area, I look for Obama bumper stickers every day. It's a rare day when I see more than two of them. I occasionally see an old one from 2008, but not many new ones. A neighbor of mine had one on her car in 2008, but it's gone and has not been replaced this year. I see very few yard signs for Obama this year. I was in DC yesterday (16th Street area) and only saw one yard sign for BO & Joe.

Obama at the debate looked frustrated. This, in my opinion, is because he knew that he didn't have adequate intelligence to deal with an unscripted conversation and certainly could not confront Mitt Romney's vastly superior intelligence. Being a rather slow-witted individual, he just wanted off stage. There is no mystery as to what the situation was. It was simply a display of the pipsqueak's mediocre natural abilities.

Give the guy a break. He thought that going on the View and David Letterman Show, to answer the tough questions that they would surely ask him, would be great debate prep. How could he or his handlers have known that the answers he gave them (telling the View that he is "eye candy" and telling Letterman that he didn't know how much the deficit was) wouldn't work in a Presidential debate? /S

I've always thought our President was just a Hugo Chavez wannabe.

From this article, Taranto posits that the coddled Barack, mmm mmm mmm, is instead and amalgam of Nick Marshall's estrogen infused upbringing (in What Women Want) and Xerxes' stroked egotism as described in the movie 300. Therefore, the Churchill bust was really returned due to jealousy over Winston's high thread count silk underwear and not British colonialism.

And Obama's hormone response the next morning after the debate, is indicative.
Taranto might be on to something.

#16 Those who see sly racism in the most innocuous of comments remind me of my college literature professor who read sex into the most innocent and least sexual of stories and poems, right down to the shedding of autumn leaves in Vermont being a metaphor for a striptease, and a walk into the snowy woods being a reference to female frigidity. The racism is in their own minds, and they read it into everything around them.

Recently Paul Ryan spoke at the American Values summit (do not remember exact name). He said many great things, but one thing in particular lit up the place. He said that one thing BO is good at is setting up Straw Men in order to knock them down.

Because BO is so arrogant, he thought he could waltz in and dazzle the watching world with his swagger and pomp.

Now, now that 60+ million people watched this first debate, a straw man became obvious, and it wasn't Mitt Romney.

Next day, of course, BO resorted to his straw man construction --or an attempt at it-- with the usual culprits throwing in their two cents.

I think, and i hope and pray, that we are on much firmer and more real grounding.

Looking forward to the Ryan/Biden tete-a-tete!!!

I was kinda amazed to see how Obama had recovered during his stump speech on Thursday, the day after the debate. He was his old self, seeming none the worse for wear.
Then I remembered he was reading from TOTUS. Ya gotta give serious credit to Jon Favreau, the wunderkind that leads the speechwriting team at the WH (who rewrote OB's 2004 DNC speech for him in Boston).

Without Jon's words and TOTUS at debates, he is screwed.

When was the last time Obama and Ambassador Chris Stephens were together, alone? Did they have a lover's spat? (both are gay). It was reported that one of the gay choir guys in Rev. Wright's church had an untimely death early in the run up to '08. This kind of problem isn't unknown among the secretive, closeted homosexual community.

the congress has aleady had hearings on eliminating 401Ks. Number one, the govt wants to stop the $80 billion in deductions whatev they are called. and two,
the 401K money is to be 'removed',confiscated, turned in to be matched up w/ your soc sec and then the govt will re-jigger it to pay you 4.4%annuity or pension.All this discussion was at zerohedge.com last year.

Nobody told el Presidente he had no clothes on--again!

Any person not prejudiced for any reason against Mitt Romney could have foretold his debate performances (including the next two.

He can think on his feet and change the game according to what the other dish out. What can o come up with to throw him off stride short of law breaking--not that that would stop o and co.

The past is prologue and he had all kinds of syuff and approaches thrown at him in the primaries (via Newt called a liar and class warfare for one)including Palin getting NC for Newt and then trying to get the pack to drag the primary out, wasting GOP standard bearer's money.

Certain strengths above the run of the mill they may never guess at as they project their own desires and motivations onto him. IOW, they still do not know him.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
