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. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans

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."

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
