The Email Obama Should’ve
Sent After the Debate

New Republic, by David Rees

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 10/6/2012 1:13:39 AM

Last night, I finished watching the Romney/Obama debate, ate a bowl of ice cream in a daze, and was about to go to bed when I got an email from the President: SUBJECT: Hey David — I hope I made you proud out there explaining the vision we share for this country. Now we need to go win this election -- the most important thing that will happen tonight is what you do (or don’t do) to help in the little time we have left: https://contribute.barackobama.com/ Thank you, Barack Usually I love getting chatty emails from the most powerful man on earth.

Comments:
Even the left retches at his emails.

The comments after this article are amazing. It's as if leftists don't want jobs, or have a house that they might have wanted to put on the market for the last 4 years, or care about the horrendous debt their children are going to be saddled with.

They want Obama, and they cannot listen to reason.

Yes, it was a fun article, fully displaying the dismay of all the lefties. But spare yourself reading the comments section. There they are buying the DNC meme that Mr. Romney lied.

Funny, you'd think he'd have been caught red-handed if he tried to lie in a debate (assuming, of course, his opponent was making even a minimum effort).

I love the ones from the people who have convinced themselves that Obama's dismal performance was a deliberate "rope-a-dope" to set Romney up for a late-round knockout. That's hysterical. There's no way he or his handlers would plan to throw away the first debate, leaving that impression in the minds of voters who very well may not watch the subsequent debates.

The commenters after the article are the type I have said for a long time. Liberals are gullible and will believe 1,000 lies before they will attempt to believe ONE truth.

I'm glad I went to school and was educated before the boomers came along and got brainwashed into Marxism.

Too right #3, Too many states have early voting for Obama to risk losing their votes with that pathetic performance.

This was the real Obama not the fake package complete with greek columns and fainting fans. I pity us if the voters fall for that charade again.

"New Republic", eh? "New Socialist State" would be more apropos. The commenters on that site are, what I would describe in one word, DELUSIONAL.

The ONLY reason that I can think of that "the Foreign National calling himself Obama" may have had a reason for smirking while he was getting intellectually spanked by a true American adult is that he has already FIXED the election by commandeering the voting booths in the proper states (Ohio, Fla., Mich., etc).

I guess I must be a mean person because I really enjoyed reading the shared angst of the leftist commenters after the article. It was like reliving conversations with so many bitter cubicle dweller losers who imagined themselves so much more brilliant and deserving than the guys signing their paychecks, but who remained cubicle dwellers for 40 years. That goes double for the "I am woman, hear me whine" types.

The comments by the wigged-out lefties after the article are priceless.

Three themes:

1. Romney is a big, fat liar. Nyah, nyah
2. Romney's a nasty, abusive bully like my ex-husband, boss, pastor, [insert authority figure here]
3. Obama was so insanely clever, he blew it on purpose to energize the base.

Yeah, right...... Obama loves himself faaaaar too much to allow himself to take such a public beatdown. He simply isn't up to the job. He can only talk extemporaneously on The View or Leno. Ask him a difficult question, and he crumbles without a TelePrompTer.

Face it, David...when it comes right down to it, liberals THINK they're so much smarter than the rest of us. In reality, they're so freakin' dumb it's pathetic. As they sit in their ivory towers staring at that vision of utopia...they can be sold on anything, even a media manufactured empty suit. Obama DID bring his A game to the debate. Problem for your side is, it's been a D- game all along. Unfortunately for him, the media glossover wasn't available in this format...he had to do it on his own.

Thank you fellow posters for suggesting that I read the NR comments. The intellect of the left has really atrophied since I was a NR reader way back in my liberal days. I guess my then liberal peers have joined me in moving to the right during the Reagan years. But where did THESE people come from?

I got that one too. I wrote back telling him I wanted him go attack, attack, ATTACK, next debate and he really needed to go for the throat.

If he takes my advice, we might see another debacle where he acts like a total jerk and loses self control when Mr. Romney keeps his.

Already his "5 seconds" thing is a joke.

I too received Barry's e-mail after the debate but was laughing too hard to give my usual highly sarcastic answer to the likes of Michelle, Stephanie, Barry, Jim, Rufus, etc. when they get into barry-worship mode.

As for the comments after the article, it was a complete train of all the usual excuses, accusing Romney of everything from being a successful businessman to a racist.

Romney wasn't attacking skin color, he was attacking lies and stupidity. But, to them, Barry does not lie and he isn't stupid so it must have been racism.

The NYC Dunkin´ Donuts location at 37th Street and 8th Avenue has some explaining to do after a video surfaced earlier this week showing a rat just doing rat things on top of some pastries.

Is British TV chef Nigella Lawson’s archenemy ex-husband Charles Saatchi behind the move to deny her entry to the US? The powerful businessman has a family connection to the Obama campaign and the current US Ambassador in London, Matthew Barzun. Barzun was appointed as US Ambassador by President Obama last year. The former CNET exec is a longtime activist in the Democratic party, and was a prominent fund-raiser for the 2008 Obama campaign, organizing mass events. Saatchi’s nephew, Edward Saatchi, also worked on the 2008 Obama campaign as a manager and founded NationalField, a social network to allow campaign staff to share information.

Classical music legend Itzhak Perlman says he was abandoned at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport after he arrived in town for a charity concert Monday afternoon.

This time, the person who met him was upset that he had carry-on luggage and then abandoned him before they arrived at customs.

SANTIAGO, Chile — A powerful magnitude-8.2 earthquake struck off northern Chile on Tuesday night, setting off a small tsunami that forced evacuations along the country’s entire Pacific coast. Officials reported two deaths and several serious injuries, but the area apparently escaped major damage as landslides blocked roads, power failed for thousands, an airport was damaged and several businesses caught fire. Iquique Gov. Gonzalo Prieto told Radio Cooperativa that two people were known to have died after the quake hit at 8:46 p.m. and several others had serious injuries. The mayor of Tarapaca attributed the deaths to heart attacks. The U.S. Geological Survey

SANTIAGO - A major earthquake of magnitude 8.0 struck off the coast of Chile on Tuesday, triggering a tsunami that hit the northern part of the country and a tsunami warning for all of South and Central America´s Pacific coast. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was very shallow, only 6.2 miles below the seabed, and struck at 6:46 p.m. local time (2346 GMT) 62 miles northwest of the mining port of Iquique, near the Peruvian border.

Hemisphere: Venezuela´s price and currency controls have wrought what they always wreak: monster shortages. And it stinks, literally, with toilet paper, diapers, soap and deodorant joining drugs on the list. That shutoff from global standards is what prevents willing buyers from acquiring goods from abroad, the source of 80% of Venezuela´s consumer staples. No foreign currency, no purchases. Further down the line, price controls have driven more shortages as costs to produce in an economy with a 56% inflation rate have made it impossible to turn a profit.

"Once we saw that his leg was going over the window, Jenny called police," Konrad Lightner said in an interview with KTLA-TV.

Geopolitics: So are Vladimir Putin´s actions in Ukraine just self-defense, as he claims, or a sign of a new sort of war with the West? Conclusions of a 19th century contemporary of Alexis de Tocqueville suggest the latter. Back in 1839, around the time political thinker de Tocqueville made his long visit to the U.S. and found an exceptional nation, writing about it in his classic "Democracy in America," another curious Frenchman, the Marquis de Custine, made a similar pilgrimage to Russia. Fully prepared to fall in love with autocratic czarism, de Custine was instead repelled by a harsh tyranny combined with

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

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

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
