Anatomy of a Disastrous
Debate Performance

PJ Media, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/7/2012 6:26:25 PM

The Romney-Obama debate was bizarre for so many reasons. Usually spin masters needle the media immediately to “prove” that their so-so candidate won. But after this debate, almost no one made the argument that Obama was close to winning — so great was the risk for even a toadying media to look ridiculous and so clear-cut the ineptness of the president. Instead, the eventual spin veered to why Obama lost (e.g., altitude, a supposed tranquilizer, a supposed mysterious Kleenex for Romney, a national security crisis, etc.) and was the stuff of fantasies.

Obama knew in the first five minutes that he was not going to be allowed to lie to Gov. Romney's face.

He waited until the next day when Romney was not there to defend himself to spew more lies.

He's sent his surrogates to lie lie and lie some more.

Pathetic loser.

What did anyone expect from a lazy, disconnected from his job, puffball president. He doesn't do his job, he only parrots what his handlers put on the teleprompter, and when it comes time for him to man up - nothing, vapid and empty, there is nothing there.
An empty bag of hot air is about the best we can explain it. Heated up by who knows what others are pulling this puppets strings?

tut tut!! Juan Williams completely defended Obama. He looked right at the camera soon after the debate and declared Obama the winner. He did not back down.

"The realization that another rant by a liberal commentator could cement the reputation of Obama as an incompetent and add to the image of a hopelessly inept president will temper post-debate media anger. The moderator cannot afford to be laissez-faire in the fashion of Jim Lehrer, and will prove far more partisan." Count on it. This is war, and they will not go down without a bitter fight. The headlines for Oct. 17 have already been written. Obama will be the winner, your opinion be damned.

Someone compared Juan Williams to a crash dummy. When I'm forced to look at him that's all I can think of. Between him and Bob Beckel I can't think of anyone more obnoxious. Oh wait, I just thought of one more guy.

A razor-sharp analysis by VDH. The media will now pull out all they have to rescue their boy. It's going to be disgusting, folks, take an extra blood pressure pill. I think we have an October surprise similar to the George H.W. Bush lies about an affair coming. It was a lie but they ran with it in the weeks leading to the election. After all, lying for the 'right cause' is acceptable to these POS.

Juan Williams has offered himself in sacrifice upon the Alter of Amorality. In wondering why, I have to assume it's all about ethnicity. How sad, because that makes him a hugh racist.

The presidential debates are nothing more than an set-up to play 'gotcha' with Mitt Romney and, for that matter, all Republican candidates who came before this day. Only Newt had the guts to tear them apart during one such debate .... to great applause, I might add.

I have little doubt that the moderators will continue to 'rescue' their lame candidate when necessary. Who can forget Georgie Porgie's interview with Obama, who referred to his 'Muslim faith?' Georgie quickly reminded the president that he meant to say his 'Christian faith.'

Someone told the bamster -- he could be "king".......

He believed it -- and enjoys all the "extras" perks that come with being the prez. He didn't know -- however -- being prez is a JOB and he would be called on to lead. Not from a teleprompter -- but -- from his ability.

Romney has always been better positioned than the biased media and their captive pollsters were willing to allow. Now they are seven months pregnant and they can't hide it anymore. I predict a bouncing eight pound Republican baby on Nov 6.

More than anything, Hansen calls attention to the most horrible aspect of our culture- children brought up (like Obama) without having much of anything demanded of them. (They even tried to make kids stop working on their parents’ farms???) If you just paid attention, and understood that, you knew better than to vote for him. (137 “present” votes??)

One poster here, who teaches, said on another article that his urban students were horribly disappointed in Obama’s debate performance. Tragic.Those kids (and their parents) don’t get it –nor do the host of liberal idiots Hansen names. You get to success, to self-realization, empowerment, whatever –through trial and error. By doing –doing it wrong and then doing it again until its right. So many kids are being deprived of that! (And the ones that aren’t stand out by a mile!)

That’s why our parents did things like gave us those piano lessons, etc. –to learn, not the skill of piano playing, but competence, to learn discipline and how it builds success. Good schools do that. Bad parents don’t.

Anyone looking at Obama’s life –including the last three years-would be an imbecile to expect anything else of him.

two things I noticed in the debate that haven't been talked about or reported that I've seen.

First, did you notice that when the question had something to do with how each of them would work with members of the opposition party TOTUS got in his obligatory, I got Bin Laden soundbite - apropos of nothing pertinent in the current discussion. That's his crutch right now and it doesn't even belong to him; the SEALS and the army pilots are the heros.

Second did you notice how often TOTUS was nodding his head in agreement with Gov. Romney? It was so weird, he was being slammed and he just kept nodding in agreement. He's so use to sycophants telling him what he wants to hear that he didn't even register what was being said to and about him.

The leftists in the Democrat Party and the MSM are furious with Obama because they have taken their best shot in 50 years at transforming the Republic into Euro-America, and their meticulously groomed and prepped ball carrier has fumbled the ball. And they realize too late in the day that they made a fool’s mistake to think that an unaccomplished, undisciplined, untested lazy Choomster was not Presidential material, but rather a certain failure waiting to happen.

The left’s most excellent Presidency has proved to have feet of sand, and the once-and-for-all American Socialist Reformation is not to be.

Victor Davis Hanson is on target once again. As he points out, Obama has been so pampered and protected by the MSM and opinion-shapers in general that he is actually unable to perform on his own unaided. Hanson's point that Obama sees himself as the representative of the preoccupations and neuroses of the liberal "intellectual" class is right on.

Here in Houston, for decades there was a sign on the back fence of a home off of Westpark, which is a road locals use to avoid freeway traffic because it is unusually fast and wide. The sign said, "Vote Democratic."

About four months after Obama's election, the word "SUCKERS" appeared in black paint. I very much regret not getting a picture.

I hadn't noticed that 18. It seemed to me that often when Romney was speaking, Barry's attention was somewhere else: like looking at his Blackberry, disguised as notes. He was probably nodding in agreement as ValJar or Axelrod told him what he was to say when next it was his turn to speak.

It's completely understandable that the leftist media machine would feel betrayed by Obama - especially front line propagandists like Chris Matthews. Here they've been working 'round the clock for years, making up and selling the fiction about his brilliance and wonderful leadership, and then he shows up at the one crucial event where he alone has to run with the ball and he drops it like he was sedated.

He'll give a better performance next time but only in style... and with the help of an audience allowed to participate as his hallelujah choir.

Again, remember WAG THE DOG, Dustin Hoffman the crazed movie producer priving to his secret agent Robert De Niro, that he could CONTROL the Diane Sawyer LIVE on the air.
She was wearing an earphone and repeated exactly what he PHONED IN. Ray Bradbury, Jerry Sohl, George Clayton Johnson readers KNOW an ear piece can be implanted in one's ear. Is that better than a teleprompter?
It's his only way out, listening to his commie comrade Valerie Jaret's every word.
Also, Biden, being the top intelligence man for the Jesuit army, will do brilliantly. He is a life long Catholic with incredible memorization training. His bluster is cover.
Brilliant cover.

And, #24, what a shame it is that the affirmative-action candidate, Barack Obama, undeservedly received the honor of becoming our first black president.

(For that is what Zero is ... affirmative action all the way.)

Think what true pride black Americans --and ALL Americans-- could have taken in a bona fide, qualified first black president.

We all know there are better-qualified, conservative African-Americans out there who could wipe the floor with Obama in a debate. Allen West, for one.

I think one of the reasons the person dressed up to be president failed at the first debate is because he got confused and thought he was playing the part of Kingfish from the old Amos and Andy show and was speaking at a meeting of the Knights of the Mystic Sea. That would be a role he might possibly be capable of pulling off; acting like a president is outside of his range IMHO.

35 - Sure, there are intelligent, honorable blacks who'd be great political representatives. Blacks don't want them! Obama IS what they want. The shiftless, lazy, uncooperative, venal, careless, scofflaw bum: that's the pefect winning black politician. They want their leaders to embody their ideal: the worthless layabout who suddenly wins the $10 million lottery. Hard work? Self-sacrifice? Integrity? Don't make me laugh. Those are all "whitey" traits, and will get you absolutely nowhere when it comes to selecting a leader among blacks. Why do all black-run communities end up as dumps? Because the people in them are irresistibly drawn to flashy conmen instead of sober, moral workhorses. It could have been predicted that, when given a chance to have a black president (and you only get ONE chance to be the first at anything) blacks would throw up this cheap little nobody.

My...my...what a difference one debate makes. The anatomy of a disastrous debate performance is easy to explain in Obie's case:

Ability to Lead = 0
Ability to exhibit high character = 0
Ability to exhibit good judgement = 0

Bottom line - 0 + 0 + 0 = 0 according to my math. As I said the other day, no rounding required.

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

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

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

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
