Top Obama aide says
performing in debates is 'not the
President's strong suit' and asks
for media's help against Mitt
Romney

Daily Mail, by Toby Harnden

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 10/4/2012 1:39:54 PM

David Axelrod, President Barack Obama's top strategist, has said that the campaign will take a 'hard look' at how to approach future debates and admitted that 'I'm sure that we will make adjustments'. All but stating that Mitt Romney had won the Denver debate, Axelrod conceded that the performance aspect was 'not the President's strong suit in these events' but insisted that 'I don't see us adding huge amounts of additional prep time'. Axelrod, speaking on a campaign conference call, made an appeal to reporters to make the points that Obama himself had failed to make in the debate

As the White House goes into "leg-breaking" mode obama will just sink further behind. 60% of the country will find it a major turnoff, and shocking development as well.

I'm wondering when the FEC will step in and make the alphabet stations count thier air time as direct contributions to Obama's campaign, especially MSNBC.

Funny, we were told he was a gifted speaker, a master orator, and he himself said he was often the smartest guy in the room. And he was so fine, so polished, so "presidential" during the debates with McCain, right?

Now, all of a suddes, it's "not his strong suit"?

I smell desperation in the air.

The only way they could "help" more is to kidnap Romney's kids, but the boys aren't in grade school now.

If Axie's pleading for MORE help from the media isn't an admission that the media is biased in favor of jug ears, then nothing ever will be.
Rather than comment on Axie's desperation, we should focus on the fact that it isn't the media's job to bale out a candidate, it is merely to report news. But sadly we all know that the msm will never be real news organizations.

The problem with flashing the bat signal for help from the media is of course that the media has been pedal to the metal all out in the help and promote Obama business from the beginning of his first presidential campaign until now. They have done everything they know to do to get him elected president and to shield him from criticism and close scrutiny. They have dug up all the dirt on his critics, including Romney, and repeated it over and over again. There is really nothing more the media can do to help Obama. If there were, there isn't the slightest doubt it would be done, and done gladly.

The rationalization that Obama is just not all that good in debates reminds one of Michelle's response when a guidance counselor advised her she didn't have the SAT scores to go to an Ivy League college. She was undeterred, saying "I just don't test well."

Obama doesn't debate well, Michelle doesn't test well. No matter. They still have what it takes to do what they are trying to do. The fact, painfully obvious, that they are making a mess of everything they touch is not their fault but the fault of GWB and the Republicans. Our friends in the media are in a tricky, slippery spot. They created and animated these Frankenstein monsters. What are they(the media) going to do with and about them now? It is more than certain that the best minds in the business are pondering the question of how to make lemonade from the lemons they have on their hands and that they have inflicted on the American people.

SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine, Ukraine - Masked gunmen stormed the parliament of Ukraine´s strategic Crimea region as Russian fighter jets screamed above the border, while Ukraine´s newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with the strong backing of the West - the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow reportedly granted shelter to Ukraine´s fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference Friday near the Ukrainian border.

Piers Morgan and CNN Plan

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

NEW ORLEANS — AJ McCarron got up slowly and walked alone to the sideline with the full weight of another dispiriting loss weighing him down. His fumble on a sack turned into an Oklahoma touchdown with 47 seconds left, sealing the Sooners’ 45-31 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night. In a painful twist, McCarron ended his illustrious college career by losing twice in a row after going 36-2 in his first 38 games at Alabama. Oklahoma, a 17-point underdog, scored two touchdowns off his interceptions in the first half before capping the upset by returning his

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
