Here's the RNC's New
Attack Ad Targeting
Obama's Debate "Smirk"

Slate Magazine, by Josh Voorhees

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/4/2012 7:11:41 AM

Well, that didn't take long. About 12 hours after last night's debate wrapped up the RNC went live with an online video attacking what it's calling President Obama's debate "smirk." Here was the blast that went out to reporters (via the Washington Examiner): "Good morning, we're out with a new video 'Smirk' highlighting the president's debate performance where he was visibly uncomfortable as he struggled to give Americans answers on how he'll turn our country around with another four years. As Morning Joe said this morning—it appeared as if Obama thought debating was beneath him."

Comments:
Attack Ad ?
There's not s single voice in the ad other than Mitt taking Barry to the woodshed last night juxtaposed to shots of 0bama SEETHING with hate and trying to cover it with his smirk.
The ad is straightforward, effective & devestating.

I'm honestly not sure anymore if what we see as condescension is not some variant of desperation mingled with terror. Remember: deep down, the man knows he is a fraud.

During that beat down by Gov. Romney, Obama was making a list of his staff members, czars, and advisors who either get a pink slip or have to resign to spend more time with their family. Smirk this!

That wasn't an attack ad, it was the cold simple truth. If the Mainstream Media were doing their jobs, you'd hear it on the news instead of a paid commercial.

This doesn't begin to pay the smirker back for the pain and suffering he has put the citizens and the nation itself through during his occupation. I feel great that some of the truth of his exploits were exposed to so many millions last night. It is a good start, but I want much more on the national stage, for all to see.

The Emperor is unmasked as having no clothes. Obama's smirk is an attempt to mask his fear.
His mind was likely spinning as to what he should say in response, but there is no defense for his failed Presidency. Obama feared looking like a fool and a wimp, and fears losing.

Hah, I don't need no stinkin 'qualified mortgage', whatever that is. Have Val Jar arrange Diamond Head CC membership. Tell Val Jar to start BO's quarantine process for move to Oahu. Remind Val Jar to tell Holder to work on blanket pardons. Oh, tell Val Jar to tell Hillary to go real slow on Libya cause I don't wanna answer a whole bunch of questions before I leave.

Naming the ad "smirk" was the only thing wrong with it. That makes one focus on the preezy rather than Romney's message. This wasn't Algore's sighs. It was just the face of someone being taken to the woodshed but trying not to look like it.

While Romney is ticking off all of Obama's supposed "failures," I see Obama barely being able to contain his pride in the destruction he has wrought. I see Obama thinking "Yeah! I did that!" I see a person being scolded and thinking to himself "Yeah! And I'd do it again, too!"

It is also rather frightening, because it could also be taken as the half-smile of a man who is the only one in the room who knows something is about to happen. Maybe he knows he's already lost and he's just looking forward to his retirement in Hawaii. I sure hope that's all it is. Either way, it's spooky for its inappropriateness.

I actually think Obama wasn't listening to Romney; that he didn't hear a word Romney was saying.

I think he was reading tweets off his iphone (or whatever device he had) and grimacing because they are coming in too slowly to be useful and was rather desperately looking for one he can use, NOW.

Dumb campaign prep idea (vintage Jarrett)...to be quietly, privately coached during the campaign via tweets ... and quite likely against the debate rules.

Osama bin Laden´s son-in-law, the voice of fiery al-Qaida propaganda videotapes after the Sept. 11 attacks, was convicted Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans for his role as the terror group´s spokesman. The verdict came after about five hours of deliberation in the case against Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the highest-ranking al-Qaeda figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. The Kuwaiti imam had testified during a three-week trial that he answered bin Laden´s request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the widely circulated videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions like

BRUSSELS - President Barack Obama says he´s concerned that some NATO allies are reducing their spending on defense. Obama says for collective defense to work, everybody has to pitch in. He says that´s necessary to ensure that NATO remains a credible force in the world. Obama says NATO can´t just be a U.S. or British exercise. Obama spoke at a news conference with European Union leaders in Brussels amid concern about Russia´s annexation of the Ukrainian region of Crimea.

"When you shrink that affects what can eat you, what you can eat, how successful you´re going to be at reproducing. Bigger is generally better." Lips collaborated with other scientists to get a better understanding on why exactly salamanders were shrinking. The most likely culprit: global warming. As temperatures heat up, so do the animals´ metabolisms. Lips and her colleagues determined that

Hillary Clinton secured the funding during her time at the State Department, when she made clean cookstoves a national priority and launched the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, vowing to invest $50 million in clean-burning stoves.

Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.

When NASA astronauts were suiting up to go to space in the 1960s, they had to make a big decision before they explored the world above us: How large of a man are you? Getting it wrong could damage the mission. According to a former NASA life support system expert who helped construct space diapers, otherwise known as Maximum Absorbency Garment systems, each astronaut in the Gemini and Apollo programs had to wear a condom-type sheath with a hole at the end for urination inside their suits. In an interview on the Science Channel´s Moon Machines documentary series about early space travel, engineer

A new species of praying mantis, Liturgusa algorei, indigenous to the thick rain forests of Peru has been named after former vice president Al Gore; one of 19 new species of the insect recently identified by entomologist Gavin Svenson. The discoveries came after Svenson, curator of invertebrate zoology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, decided to search through both old collections at museums and embark on field expeditions into the forests of Central and South America. Unlike the patient, zen-like praying mantis we´re all familiar with, these equatorial cousins take a decidedly different approach to both hunting and self-preservation. "This group,

President Obama, like most Kenyan politicians, loves beating about the bush and avoiding the real issue. In Kenya, we all know the big problem is corruption, but we are addressing virtually everything else but corruption. And so in America, our cousin President Obama dances around serious issues like the typical Kenyan he is. When Russia invaded Georgia in 2008, Obama thundered with indignation and a fulsome, righteous — and justified — anger. The people of Georgia thought he would follow through on his fiery words with real action to set their country free of Russia’s torment, but wapi! With Cousin Barry, as with

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?
