Team Obama Blames
John Kerry for Debate Loss

Breitbart Big Government, by Alexander Marlow

Original Article

Posted By:Bubbasuncle, 10/6/2012 8:50:49 PM

The Obama campaign has been reeling since losing the first Presidential debate of this election cycle in front of 67 million viewers. They've tried--and thus far failed--to craft a narrative to explain away the debacle in Denver. Previously, we reported to you that Obama Senior Advisor David Plouffe, who ran the President's successful 2008 campaign, (falsely) accused Mitt Romney of lying. In a rare comedic moment from the typically robotic former Vice President Al Gore, he suggested on Current TV that the Mile High City's altitude was the reason Obama was low on energy and

Unbelievable. Anyone who thought John Kerry, well known phony warrior and insufferable blowhard, could emulate Mitt Romney is a complete idiot. At least blame the person who selected Kerry.

First, not all Americans were taken captive by this idiot. Secondly, will obama ever, EVER take blame for anything. If he had just said I blew it I could accept that. But excuse after excuse is just a fantasy land. Our middle school was undefeated in soccer. They tied their last game with the cross town rival. One of the star players works as a student worker in the library. When I asked him what happened he said, "It was my fault. I misjudged the ball and I made a bad play. I blame myself." It's pretty bad when a 13 year old can man up to a disappointment but our so called president can't. This says a lot about his character.

I think that Kerry just earned himself a second yacht by taking the fall for the Big O. There is absolutely no ethics in the WH. Who cares WHY Obama could not hold his own in the debate,
the fact is, he didn't, and the reasons and blame are owned by Obama, no one else. It is up to HIM to be prepared, not to his lackeys.

They're saying Jean Fraud did not "channel Mitt's aggression enough". But then Jean Fraud wants to be secretary of state and was afraid to be in the president's face which any fool - especially those fools close to Obama - is a very, very bad thing to do.

The petulant, thin-skinned preezy is his own worst enemy.

O&Co underestimated Mitt Romney. Period.

And if by chance they'd not underestimated him, Obie still wouldn't have been able to cram for that exam. He is supposed to be the president. He's supposed to have four years of his own accomplishments internalized - no one should have to coach him on his own accomplishments. But he has none.

I refuse to feel sorry for John Kerry after what he has done to our country. Chickens coming home to roost....

It was hemorrhoids, or perhaps even "the pain of psoriasis," really, really bad athlete's foot, his schwanz was caught in his zipper, and that was why he couldn't concentrate and he kept looking down, or perhaps it was the dandruff he noticed on his shoulder that threw our glorious Prez off his stride.

Maybe his pet Gerbil just croaked, or perhaps Obama forgot his lucky pink Blankie, or maybe Michelle hit him an unusually potent dose of "Malocchio," the old "Evil Eye," and he forgot to do the "horn" sign to counteract it like he usually did.

Or it coulda just been too much CHOOM in the Green Room, or maybe even that mean ol' disrespectful, chain saw totin, "Chain Saw Massacre" Romney or, perhaps a la "The Terminator," Romney was actually replaced by a know it all killer robot from the future.

All good, believable potential explanations for why Obama did not prevail.

What happened to Obama in the debate happened because he never really had a legitimate opponent before who really knew the issues and who was not afraid to sound off. Then you have the missing factors that always serve as Obama's crutches, but who could not run interference for Obama in a one on one debate, like his teleprompter and the liberal media.

You have to figure that Kerry can now forget about being Secretary of State, unless President Romney gives him the job and that is not likely. Why would Kerry want to be Secretary of State anyway as that job would suck.

Kerry didn't tell him he wasn't really dressed regally but, in fact, had on no clothes. Didn't want to jinx his job chances?

They need to substitute softball tossers Chrissy Matthews for the moderator so he can rely on help to get through the next debate.

They can practice until they waste away and still obama will have to walk alone onto the stage?

They may prep him to parade around the stage with long strides, but still his record will attend him. Romney can remember and recall--without notes on his handkerchief.

Hell hath no fury like a naked empty chair.

Okay, so my job isn't as intense as the President's... I'll admit that. But I've had countless times where I've been called upon without *any* warning to provide a rundown on a major project, including questions about critical issues, etc. And while I hadn't had *formal* prep time, I was able to hold my own because *I was living the project* daily. If you're involved and living it, you've got 80% covered and you can wing the rest. Prep time may polish up the presentation, but the substance *should* be there anyway.

What a sad admission the Dems have to make, that the President can't speak to issues without kid-gloving him through it. It's lucky for us that major world issues are all planned ahead of time, and the darkest forces in the world are led by men who are polite enough give a President time to prepare his reactions.

A key component of the liberal makeup is the automatic air of superiority. If you aren't a liberal, then they believe you obviously aren't as intelligent and sophisticated as they are. The truth is they are rarely anywhere as intelligent as they think they are. They just limit their exposure to people who agree with them.

Obama coasted through life thanks to affirmative action. He's never had to do anything or bear the consequences of his decisions. The press has never questioned anything he's done. Suddenly, he found himself in front of someone who didn't automatically worship Obama, and who is far more intelligent and knowledgeable.

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
End to His Prime-Time Show

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

Federal authorities said Thursday they have arrested and charged a Texas man in connection with the “knockout game,” accusing him of a hate crime for targeting a black man for a vicious street attack. Most knockout victims that have appeared in news reports have been white, but the Justice Department said in this instance the victim was a 79-year-old black man, and stepped in with federal charges. “Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,” said Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. attorney for the southern district of Texas. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with

"They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress," said Podesta of what Obama´s White House team faces.

Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration.

CHINA - a 38-year-old man leaped to his death after an argument with his girlfriend who insisted they continue shopping. (snip) Eyewitnesses said Hsiao could be heard telling his girlfriend that they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on hitting one more store where there was a sale on shoes. An eyewitness said: "He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime, and it was pointless buying any more. She started shouting at him, accusing him of being a skinflint, and of spoiling Christmas. It was a really heated argument."

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
