Obama the debater: Making
Jimmy Carter look awesome

Washington Times, by Charles Hurt

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/4/2012 1:39:43 AM

Party like it’s 1980! Bewildered and lost without his teleprompter, President Obama flailed all around the debate stage last night. He was stuttering, nervous and petulant. It was like he had been called in front of the principal after goofing around for four years and blowing off all his homework. Not since Jimmy Carter faced Ronald Reagan has the U.S. presidency been so embarrassingly represented in public. Actually, that’s an insult to Jimmy Carter. The split screen was most devastating. Mitt Romney spoke forthrightly, with carefully studied facts and details at the ready. He looked right at the president and

Comments:
This was a hit dead center on how 0bama performed in the debate. If you can call it that. Jimmuh Carter is now not not the worst president or worst debater for president in modern times.

There is no doubt that Romney commanded that stage and that includes the moderator. This is what a good leader does!

Is anyone but me worried about Obama having some type of "Rope-a-Dope strategy?

He just looked so bad. Could he be hoping try and beat Romney in the next debates and to look so much better by comparison?

Interesting take at Hillbuzz.org where they claim Obama's weight loss is caused by his drug use.

Remember when Rick Lazio stormed Hillary Clinton's podium and for all intents and purposes was declared the loser for being so aggressive towards her?

I expect something along these lines to come out in an attack form on Romney.Pushy,disrespectful,rude,you name it.The left only licks it's wounds so long before they come bouncing back in a vicious manner.

The real problem for Obama is trying to defend the indefensible.Foreign policy should be another target rich environment for Romney.

Right now, somewhere in the country, Barack Hussein Obama is having a nightmare: Two more debates with this guy? Nothing doing. A preening peacock will in no way be upstaged by some businessman with a neat haircut. Look for a distraction coming, most likely a military action or some civil emergency which will allow Barry to gracefully bow out whilst he attends to this dire emergency.

My favorite line was when Romney said "~ people tell me government picks winners and losers, but why are you always picking the losers?"

Also, obama said something in the past tense. Pretty sure he said "~ when I was President"

I couldn't believe how many time Mitt had to scold Yomama about mis-characterizing his position on taxes. Was it 3,4,5 or 6 time in the first half hour. The WOn stuck with his lies and prepared spin because he had nothing else to fall back on except the lie. Romney mopped the floor with the Nappy Headed One. The only thing I can say about their ties is the Mitt's red tie was perfect and the blue tie Zippy had on matched his purple lips perfectly. By the end of the 3rd debate, The Fresh Prince of Putting will be a Master Debater.

This is what happens when an adult comes into the room. Why is that? We have an president who through his whole career has been pushed along because of Affirmative Action. Affirmative Action allows the unqualified to qualify. What the real shame is that when presented with a challenged, they have no tools to cope with the situation. By that time it's too late. You can't create knowledge out of the ether.

...one of the better pieces I've read tonight...kinda like watching someone getting a wedgie done to them. Worse when you think he was probably was all wee wee'd up by the time the tightie whities got pulled on him...

...his glares and quiet pleads to Lehrer only added to the obvious, he is not up to the job. His attempts to reach for his inspirational voice on some of his standard lines even failed. The columns were crumbling and the tide was moving in...and he got to go home with the wife...

...I loved this evening...

I loved it! Every second of it! But best of all was when Michelle took the sobbing Barry off the stage and nobody said good-bye, but before the Romneys left, there was cheering and adoration from the crowd! Love CSPAN!

We do not have to worry about Mitt, like we did McCain. He can handle it!

Told my wife prior to the debates that Romney's only hope is to not play "their" game. When asked a question (pre-leaked to the Choomster), just talk about what you want to talk about.

Romney did it and did not let the moderator cut him off as he responded to the lies.

Beautiful.

Accepting that Mitt was brilliant and Obama is an idiot, it was almost as if Obama stopped trying. He's ready to move on to his Hawaiian estate where he can live like a king and not have to do any work. (Not that he's done any since he got there, but he's expected to!)

Can't wait for Biden/Paul! the one-two punch! Followed by foreign policy debate!

Great article, Charles!
The president's handlers obviously drilled him on his revealing 'I'm about to tell a lie' moments .... especially since there was an article exposing these Obama body language movements and utterances. He almost slipped up on one common lie preface as he began to spout, 'Let me be clear' but caught himself before finishing that comment.
... That was a hoot! You could almost hear Empty Suit thinking, 'Oooops.'

Obama's target audiences during this campaign have been junior colleges where most in the crowd are english-as-second-languagers. He grins and struts, and they shower adoration, neither understainding nor caring what he's yakking about. Throw in the free phones and so'o'the-border food stamps, and the world is O's oyster.

That explains why he dodged meeting any leaders at the UN -- if they were any higher up than a junior collegiate, he was totally ill equipped to have a conversation on any topic other than free phones, Vegas or golf.

During the debate, I listened to Romney, muted Obama and flipped between them and Gossip Girl. Obama was more insipid, even muted, than the latter. His hands, however, were flying -- he used them incessantly, swooping, cupping, sweeping, stabbing, stirring. They were a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing.

I agree with all posters above but want to point out #2's reps one. We have seen the empty chair for almost four long years, but it probably the first time Dems recognized what an empty chair looks like in person.
Obama did not consider the fact that he represents not only himself, but his Party. Last night he was a big embarrassment to his Party. So sad. /s

#9 - Interesting observation, re military action a la October surprise. There was an article on Breitbart last evening that there is something planned. My military son alerted me to it - a strike at Libyan targets. Plural. ''End'' of October, whatever that means and that definition is flexible. You could well be right that something will get in the way of the next debate(s).

I think the stage was set at the git-go, when Barcky wished his beloved Wookie a happy anniversary. NO CROWD REACTION. None. He couldn't believe the crowd wasn't cheering him and her, anyway, despite Jim Lehrer's admonitions against it.

For Barcky, it was downhill from there.

Heh.....

FTA - "Who knew anyone on the planet could make Mitt Romney look easy, relaxed, smooth and human?"

Not necessary, Charles. You can take that line out and the lack of it will have no impact on your article. Some of us think obit is less than human. He thinks he's God, so he sorta agrees with us. As for cool, obit looks more like a fool. He's just a show up guy. But, that's just my take.

The President seemed angry from the first moment, even in his anniversary homage to Michelle, especially when he asserted grumpily that next year they wouldn't be celebrating in front of 40 million people. He looked so ornery I kept expecting the finger to be deployed. Besides angry, he looked sick, with sallow coloring, dark circles. In contrast, Mitt looked terrific, vibrant, energized, in command of the situation, and much healthier. And when they walked out on the stage and shook hands, Mitt looked taller, which prognosticators seem to think significant.

Great job Mr Romney! I am not surprised at all by either candidate's performance. Zero is a, well... zero. But I am amazed at how surprised our side seems to be about Romney's performance?!?! Every time Romney speaks he has total command of the facts and speaks with itelligence and experience. He never backs down and is unafraid to play hardball. When are some conservatives going to realize we have a great candidate who will make a great POTUS? I just don't get it.

Romney performed last night just as I knew he would. Romney/Ryan 2012!!!

Governor Romney was Reaganesque! I was so proud.

#9 I was thinking the same thing during the debate. He will have to find something to get out of the other two. A national emergency will do just fine. It was obvious he was in waaaay over his head which is what many of us have been saying all along.

#34 I have been saying for a long time that he is having to take something to cope with his life. He appears to be in a daze most of the time. I wouldn't be surprised to find a meth lab sitting next to the beer brewery in the White House. With his whistling false teeth we wouldn't be able to see the rotting teeth that goes with being a meth junky. Before it was over, my husband and I had decided he doesn't really want to be re-elected.

From 2005-2008 Obama was in DC living the bachelor life while his wife was in Chicago. I wonder if he hooked up with Chris Stevens. Maybe he was on his list like the choirmaster at his church. And something had to be done. For sure, Obama is on the weed.

NO! Just lazy, lazy, lazy and convinced (and how could he not be?) that he was the smartest man in the room and that the Press and the People would cover for him. All he had to do was show up! He must be fuming now, and won't make that mistake at the "Town Hall", but I am also sure that the Chicago Mafia will pull every dirty trick in the book to stack the deck re: the audience, etc. And that will be NOTHING compared to what they will pull at the election. My hope is that the toady Press, realizing that the Emperor has no clothes and that THEY may be implicated, will start to do some actual reporting Re: Libya and the WARN ACT re: military contractors having to give notice prior to layoffs AND the fact that the Administration says it will pay for any potential lawsuits WITH OUR $ per usual.

It's time for everyone to get their guard up. The Dims will do ANYTHING to stay in power, and after last night, you can bet they are planning to come out swinging big time. Brace yourselves: if you thought the Dim campaign was nasty up to this point, I predict we haven't seen anything like what is coming. There is nothing more dangerous than a wounded, desperate demoncrat party that is fearful it may be on the verge of losing its grip on the presidency.

For the next 33 days, there is going to be an avalanche of dirty tricks, lies, bogus voter registration, etc. Any and every thing that can be thought up will be in play. And, as mentioned, military action against Libya is not out of the question. If Obozo can launch air strikes against Libya in retaliation of Benghazi, then there will be an element of Americans who will be drawn to Obozo for it. After all, can't undermine the president or change presidents in the middle of a war, now can we.

Two more debates: The worst is yet to come.

But be mindful, this could have been a setup. Who knows?

It's simply amazing that Zippy was never so fully exposed before this! Look for the media to rally round their champion, who deserved the Big Zero that he is.

Did you get the feeling that zero might vote for Mitt? That was sure his demeanor as he seemed to accept that he iwas so completely outclassed.

Zero must have been thinking that all in all he'd rather be at the $35 million estate in Hawaii - forever just him and the wookie. "You hear me, Barack?" (my favorite Sagman line). LOL

Obama is a Brand... like Nike, HP, Ford, you name it... If Obama is compared to a pair a shoes, people bought them because marketing knows how the hype them up and make people want them, but in Obama's case, America put them on and try to run in them and you slid, they fall apart and they made our feet hurt.
To the people that never wore them, they look great, and people are impressed by them, but if you did, you end up trashing them and chalk it up to experience.
Democrats just hate the truth that their guy is a phony and a fake and should never have been elected president.

"I felt like a dying clown with a streak of Rin Tin Tin." (from the Who's "Who Are You")

The Lightworker (sic) probably felt that way when he sulked offstage blinking back the tears and grinding his teeth in impotent rage as the Linebacker glowered. But since he's never composed a single memorable--let alone poetic--line in his life, he could never give voice to the quote above. Obama, who has spent a lifetime being elevated to positions he is in no way qualified for, is the utmost personification of the Peter Principle. He's a loser whom other losers believe to be something special, and his pResidency is a total loss.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

Mitt Romney and President Obama each racked up early and expected victories Tuesday night in relatively safe territory, while some of the biggest battlegrounds that will decide the election remained too close to call. All the big swing states where polls have closed -- Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina -- were too close to call, Fox News projects.

As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican. Thirty-one percent identified as independent or something else, and Romney has a big edge among this group - 56 percent to 40 percent for Mr. Obama.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia. President Obama has been hugely unpopular in the Mountain State since he first ran

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

Bevin has said he didn´t know it was a rally supporting cockfighting and thought it was a "state´s rights" rally. After ducking other calls for comment, Bevin went on WHAS radio´s "Terry Meiners Show" on Thursday to talk about the rally, cockfighting and other things. "I´ve never been to a cockfight, I don´t condone cockfighting, but here´s the thing: I´m not going to disparage people for exercising their First Amendment rights,"
