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.

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."

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park
