Axelrod: Obama 'taken
aback by the brazenness' of
Romney's debate performance

Politico, by Mackenzie Weinger

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/7/2012 11:57:40 AM

Obama senior campaign adviser David Axelrod on Sunday said Republican Mitt Romney delivered a “very good performance” at the first presidential debate that was “completely un-rooted in fact” and the president was “taken aback at the brazenness” of the Republican nominee's answers.(snip)As for why Obama did not address Romney’s “47 percent” comments at the debate, Axelrod said “the president obviously didn’t see the appropriate opportunity.” “The president was earnestly trying to answer questions that were asked on the topics that were being discussed, and he didn’t find the opportunity to raise it, and it’s obviously well known,” Axelrod said.

I predict 0bama is going to over do it in the next debate and make himself appear even more of a buffoon (if that's even possible) before the world.
0bama can not win against the actuality of Romney if they insist on staying in their utopian fantasy bubble & will suffocate from an overdose of reality if they overreach and deal with Mitt in truthful terms. In short, 0bama is doomed.

I would use the word "assertive"..as a strang, take charge successful businessman would do.
Now picture how the Arabs will be taken "aback" by an strong assertive President named Romney. The Arabs only pay attention to strength in leadership.

Looking at Ramussen this AM, Obama could spend the next debate in a fetal position and get over 40% of the vote.

All these excuses why Obama bombed add up to the fact that Obama isn't good at thinking on his feet. What a joke to say he wanted to answer the questions that were asked! He didn't answer them, to begin with, but politicians are noted for not answering questions, instead turning them around to suit their agenda. Obama could have done anything with the questions, but didn't. And enough for "Romney lied." What B.S.

The only effect Romney had on the Man Child was when he used his "I've raised five sons" line, and that is what caused the meltdown. 0bama is not as smart as some would like us to believe, but he is smart enough to know that Romney called him a child and a LIAR! To the Narcissist in Chief that was just too much to bear. It is probably the first time in his life anyone ever spoke the truth to him.

Has this joker ever been held accountable for anything???? This is just crap talk because you don't have any answers for your first term. I can't wait for the foreign policy debate.

#6 is thinking along the same line I am: How does this look to other countries? Our supposed president can't answer a question without going off on irrelevant tangents and looks totally incompetent. Four more years of this? If he wins, we're doomed.

Fellow Ldotters, please get out and help the campaign. If you live in a state that is not a swing state, there are ways you can make calls to help in the swing states. If you live in a swing state, get out there and talk to your acquaintances, volunteer with the campaigns - for senate too.

If you are unable to do these things, write a check. We've got to win this thing. Thanks.

The "taken aback by brazenness" excuse has at least two intrinsic problems. (1) It implies that president seriously underestimated his opponent, which is certainly nothing of which to be proud. (2) More significantly, it seems to contradict itself, for if the much referred "lies" were all that obvious and abundant, it should have been that much easier to spot and refute them in the debate. To be simply stunned into submissive silence by the aggressive mendacity of a debate opponent may signify to some people a superior moral and intellectual vantage a la Woodrow Wilson's (in)famous remark that there is such a thing as a nation being too proud to fight. The problem is that such sancta simplicitas, even -indeed especially- if authentic, is not what the office of president of the United States demands.

It is mere nonsense of course, as anyone who has beheld the demagoguery of Obama on the stump in front of friendly audiences knows quite well. Obama has no problem denouncing, defaming and debating opponents - when they are not present to contradict him. Obama's problem is by no means that he is too ethical and intellectual to win a debate with the Father of Lies, the devil incarnate in the form of Mitt Romney. Obama's problem is that he is neither intelligent nor informed enough to hold his own with a capable opponent who does not agree with him about everything.

I would bet that everyone here has noticed how much of a tough guy Obama is when his opponent is not in the room.

Obama is a punk... not a black punk or a white punk... just a plain old punk.

He fights by making faces after the debate is over.

So, by this logic, if Putin or any other leader is "brazen" with BO, it is only to be expected that they will then get everything they want.

This explains about the kneeling in front of other leaders and the laughingstock that America is becoming in the world.

Meanwhile BO sits back and sucks in all the Choomsmoke he can with the windows closed tightly.

What this shows is that the dems will say anything to win. The only "brazen" thing that Romney did is refuse to accept BO's distortions as "truth". It was rather pathetic.

BO said Romney was for $5 trillion in tax breaks and Romney said it was NOT true. He also said that his guiding principle was that the amount of money paid by the wealthy would not decrease. That's a pretty straight forward declaration. BO repeated the lie. Romney corrected him. I think it happened 4 or 5 times. Romney refused to let BO lie. I guess that is pretty brazen.

The dems and the media are trying to create a theme that Romney some how cheated, first with the handkerchief nonsense and now that Romney was somehow excessively aggressive. The people that saw the debate KNOW what Romney was really like . He listened to what BO said and responded to it. He corrected BO's lies. Since most of what BO says is lies, Romney was doing a lot of correction. I'm sure it didn't sit well with the narcissistic BO.

I loved the young men who lie story. POW!

'taken aback' by the brazenness' of
Romney's debate performance?

Axelbox seems to have a flair for redundant sayings. When he speaks of Obama being 'taken aback,' I would suggest that it is a rather extravagant use of the term.

Still, we have come to expect such deceptive reasoning from duplicitous communists.

Axelbox mover over, it is time for your girlie man to head back to the Windy City.

He's toured the world, and I won't mention anybody in particular, but he thinks Mitt was more brazen than all of them? He is having a fit of vapors over nasty Mitt Romney after everyone he has supposedly sized up in our name? Lordy.

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday.

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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
