Why was President Obama
so bad?

Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 10/4/2012 6:36:15 PM

The Barack Obama who stood on the debate stage in Denver Wednesday night was virtually unrecognizable to the person who swept to victory in 2008 or even the man who had built a narrow-but-clear edge in the 2012 race. In the wake of the debate, Democrats conceded that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney had dominated the proceedings and quickly moved on to a deeper — and harder to answer — question: What the hell was wrong with the president? Theories abound — up to an including that Obama, who had done debate prep in Las Vegas, struggled to

FTA: "Obama is, without question, the most gifted speaker in politics right now." Why do people keep rolling out that stale, stinky piece of trash? Says who, Chris? You and your Dem-loving buddies? Seriously? Half the speakers at the Republican National Convention were clearly better at the podium, and they didn't feel the need to pander with some urban jive-talkin' either. Sheesh, can't we get past this lie?

The truth is slowly starting to dawn on some but by no means all Obama fans. It is strikingly simple - but for them it is terrible as an army with banners: Obama is really nothing but a gifted BS artist. They have been deceived. He is a mixture of a Toastmaster and a run of the mill rabble rouser who SOUNDS like he knows what he is talking about(to some people anyway) - but it turns out he is nothing but hot air when challenged. His world view and politics, like those of most Leftists, are simply sophomoric, the attitudes and ideals of a late adolescent without significant experience of life. Like other Leftists, he dwells in a fantasy world that he considers infinitely superior to the real world of flesh and blood with all of its limitations and contradictions. The media made him president and propped him up and shielded him as long as they could. They could not save him last night. They cannot save him now, though they will certainly try. Humpty Dumpy fell off a wall, and all the King's men cannot put him together again.

Obama just goes out and throws lies about his opponent out there. Last night, he was not allowed to get away with it.
Today he was back on the trail of lies.
Obama stated that Romney said "we don't need more teachers". 60 million people watched the debate, can anyone recall Romney saying that? He used the same old tired 5 trillion in tax cuts for the rich.
See what I mean? Didn't Obama pay attention last night..and the dumb masses eat this crap up.

In his four-years as POTUS, BHO has discovered that the presidency requires more than voting "present." His narcissism carried him only so far, even with his chorus of the main stream media. Standing alone on a stage, facing a man of accomplishment in both academics and business, he allowed the nation to see just how shallow are his ideas, his intelligence and his oratory. He allowed the nation to see the vacuum of his intellect and the sham of his presidency.

Standing alone on that stage, facing Mitt Romney, BHO needed only his cell-phone ~ to call 911!

In 90-minutes, BHO made Clint Eastwood's day!

And mine!!!

What people witnessed was the destruction of an illusion. Obama was never a great orator, just a good reader. This was the first occasion where he was matched against a competent debater and he failed miserably. In the "town hall" setting that everybody is waiting for, Obama will do just as badly. He is not a president and it showed. It would not have mattered if he had spent more time practicing with the other liar (JF'N Kerry) instead of playing golf for three days. He just doesn't have it.

Why was he so bad? Several simple (and pretty obvious) reasons:

1. Arrogance. Thinking it was in the bag, Obama didn't bother to prepare.

2. Laziness. Obama didn't really want to prepare and laziness reinforced arrogance.

3. Not smart. Obama has perfectly average intelligence, maybe in the 115-125 IQ range.

4. Doesn't read. Thinking he knows it all already, Obama doesn't update his mental maps or add to his store of knowledge.

It's the narcissism. They have huge feelings of entitlemwnt (like they are just going to be handed the debate-like he was they presidency) and they suffer from extremely limited self-definition. (As in, he thinks he's the greatest, no matter what the truth is....)

Adds up to real loser against someone who has a high level of competency.

The simple answer is that Obama isn't a real leader but an actor that plays the role of presidend hired by Soros-types on the sidelines to bring about the radical change on America that these shadowy figures want but cannot accomplish openly.

Only difference is a real actor has the insight that he is only mimicking the real thing, whereas Obama himself thinks he is a great leader. If pride goes before a fall, Obama is going to find himself falling.. and falling... in a seemlessly bottomless abyss.

“No, I’m not a President but I slept in a White House last night.”

Along with being an arrogant empty suit, I believe he is suffering from depression and really doesn’t want four more years of being knocked around by a GOP House along with a new GOP Senate.

I also think their internal poll numbers show that they have no chance of winning without an October-Surprise or a major FUBAR by Romney and to depend on either is a crap shoot.

His and the Wookie’s expressions on stage last night show they are both down and dejected.

It’s one thing to rabble-rouse and race-bait and tell lies in front of a bunch of adoring losers but something totally different to act Presidential in front of 65+ million Americans where 35 million really don’t like you.

Kafir

Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

De Klerk shared the Nobel peace prize with Mandela in 1993 for brokering the end of apartheid and, when the ANC leader was elected president in the first multiracial election, entered into a government of national unity as his deputy. De Klerk, 77, said in remarks to the BBC: "It´s a very sad moment for the whole of South Africa and I´m sure millions of people around the world. "I fully associate myself

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

WARSAW — Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. arrived here Tuesday for a lightning visit to reassure Poland and the Baltic states that the United States will protect them from any Russian aggression similar to the actions it has taken in Crimea. In two days of meetings with the leaders of Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, Mr. Biden is expected to pledge new but modest military and economic measures to shore up the NATO alliance and build solidarity in the face of the deepening crisis in Ukraine. Mr. Biden’s trip is designed to send a visible message to Russia, reinforcing sanctions the

I had an extraordinary telephone conservation with my 86-year-old black dad, a lifelong Democrat and huge Obama fan. He called to ask me, “Is Obama anti-Christian?” Dad has been a Christian pastor for over 50 years. I said, “Dad, I have been telling you about Obama´s anti-Christian policies for the past five years.” Dad replied, “And I have not been listening.” Dad confessed that he simply could not bring himself to go against a black man in the White House. I felt that dad was expressing the sentiments of many blacks of his era. I asked him to explain why

Catholic League president Bill Donohue is blasting beer companies that pulled their support for the St. Patrick´s Day parades this year. Donohue Mondaycalled for Catholics to boycott the companies behind Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams for dropping their sponsorship of the parades in New York City and Boston over the refusal of organizers to allow gays and lesbians from marching under a banner. In an email, Donohue blamed the "bullying" against the parade on its "Catholic element." "I have had my last Guinness and Sam Adams. Heineken was always slop, so there is no sacrifice there," Donohue wrote. "I urge

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

First lady Michelle Obama "has been looking for an opportunity to go to China," a White House official said on Monday. And she considers it a "real treat" to take her daughters and her mother with her -- a trip she´s making at considerable expense to taxpayers, although the White House refused to give a dollar figure. "You know, the first lady has talked about the importance of young people here in the United States learning about other cultures. She believes that about her own children, and has seen this as a really unique opportunity to share a very different

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed. That´s why this series of photos -- shot by LIFE magazine in 1969 as part of a feature on outstanding college students -- is so fascinating. It captures

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

“I think we’re in for a tsunami-type election in 2014,” Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus told the audience at Tuesday morning’s Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington, D.C. Looking ahead to this fall’s midterm elections, Priebus boldly predicted big gains for the GOP, especially in the Senate. ”My belief is, it’s going to be a very big win, especially at the U.S. Senate level, and we may add some seats in congressional races,” Priebus predicted. “But I need to and we need to at the RNC make sure that we can capture the positives and the benefits we’ve been

WASHINGTON—In what was described as a major ramping up of sanctions, Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Tuesday that the United States had frozen Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Netflix account, effective immediately. “Unless and until Mr. Putin calls off the annexation of Crimea, no more ‘House of Cards’ or ‘Orange Is the New Black’ for him,” Mr. Kerry said. “The United States will not stand by and reward the annexation of another sovereign nation with a policy of streaming as usual.” While all of the sanctions Mr. Kerry announced on Tuesday were Netflix-related, he warned Mr. Putin that
