Why Obama Will Lose
All Three Debates

American Thinker, by Monty Pelerin

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 10/8/2012 8:18:16 AM

President Obama had a terrible debate last week. Supporters and opponents were shocked that he could be so off his game. They shouldn't have been. That they were indicates that they don't understand Obama's serious, likely insurmountable re-election problem. Obama supporters and detractors expect the old Obama to show better form in the next debate. But that is not going to happen! It cannot, because Obama's critical problem is not correctable.

His flashy smile can't make up for what he doesn't know or for what he's done the past 4 years.

He will come ready to re-fight the last debate. Pre-loaded with a string of lies to attack Romney with. The audience will be packed with dupes spouting pre-screened questions.

All Romney has to do is not play their game. Sidestep the questions and lies. No matter what is asked or said, use the time to get his own points across. Given that this is a Foreign policy debate, this could be a rout.

Romney: "For one of our greatest allies in a time of increasingly instability and violence in the the Middle East, I took time from my campaign to meet with Prime Minster Netanyahu. I did not think like the President that being a guest on "The View" and saying that he was "eye candy" exhibited any kind of leadership from the world's greatest defender of liberty."

The overarching leftoid response to Romneys win was some variation of "Even though Romney spewed nothing but lies" followed by a long winded recitation of how hard it is to be president and pure amazement at how poorly the annointed one performed, although obviously it wasn't his fault (Romneys cheat hanky and all).

Very few followed the "spewed lies" comment with any refutation of fact. They simply left the word Lie hang out there hoping it would stick. Those that did try to refute were left with unconvincing arguments like "Just because Romney didn't specically call for a 5 trillion dollar tax hike expert economists have shown that it could happen as a result of ... insert boogeyman conspiracy plot here.

If anything Obama is even more vulnerable on Foreign policy. Most of us had Obama's utopian worldview in our late teens. He relates so well with college students BECAUSE he has that same naieve understanding of the world.

He's pushing a worldview most in the country have strongly held, and then completely abandoned in the face of the cold harsh reality of human nature.

He is going to be the Tobacco Salesman in a room full of ex smokers. He's toast.

I liked the analogy of the golden and pit bull. Very true. obama does not speak extemporaneously very well and it shows. No teleprompter to read and he just isn't very good or believable. I am sure he will boo hoo with someone from the crowd and offer a Kleenex and he cannot offer any answers. I am also looking forward to the Ryan/biden debate. I know they keep saying how good biden is but I don't believe it for a minute.

Exactly!
Foxnews had Debbie Blabbermouth-Shultz on yesterday morning. She was asked a direct question…she responded with a thirty second dissertation that had absolutely nothing to do with the question but was actually a repeat of democrat talking points. Of course she wasn't called on it.
Romney and Ryan should do the same thing when hit with 'gottcha' questions.

You can bet your boots Romney is not going to fall into his own inevitability of winning the last two debates, but will be more determined to even perfect his last performance.

What I do expect, is for Obama to try to charm his Town Hall questioners. 'Too late the phalarope,' they will be looking past that for answers. The media of course realizes it must find a little something wonderful to prop up their boy.

Look for a manufactured "October Surprise" before the next R/O debate if (probable) the debate on Thursday between Joe and Paul goes south for the administration. Word's out he's thinking about bombing or irritating Libya somehow so he can look presidential. It's all about the ME at this point. Any little skirmish there will require his "leadership" which will trump the debate.

He'd rather not be "present" at anymore of these "ridiculous" events. Give him Hollyweird where he can shine!

The Obamamedia spin-talkers have all gotten the memo that their idol got taken to the woodshed because Romney lied with the journal-list understood implication that Jim Leher was "too passive."
[Translation: Leher failed to provide softballs tailored to Obama's know talking-point repertoire.]

Absolute certain prediction for debate #2: The "town hall" will be packed with Obama supporters all reading written questions provided in advance by Obama operatives.

We will be lucky if any of the "audience" are Romney supporters rather than Obama supporters who lied in whatever screening takes place.

Simple, his supposed nice smile is now a negative...he is arrogant and condescending and uses the smile as a signal he's upset.

Also he's got nothing to talk about but bash Mitt, and Mitt is not taking it one more second, he's fighting back and kicking Obama's rear all over the stage.

Love it Libs, it gets worse!

As Romney was applying the surgeon's scalpel to Obama's half-truths and outright falsehoods in last Wednesday's debate, the outmatched and humiliated incumbent's face wore the phony smile of ignominious defeat.

"Monty Pelerin"--I like that nom de plume!--is surely correct that Obama won't improve in the next two debates because those abilities just don't inhere in him. He's spent a lifetime pretending to be someone he will never be: an eminence grise, a deep thinker, a wonk with abilities above those of the people whom he has chosen to surround him. In truth he's just a noisemaker that someone else must program.

Obama's trembling smile reminds me of a passage in Tom Wolfe's great Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers.

"'Ha-unnnnh,' says the Flak Catcher. It is one of those laughs that starts out as a laugh but ends up like he got hit in the stomach halfway through. It's the first assault on his dignity. So he breaks into his s***-eating grin, which is always phase two. Why do so many bureaucrats, deans, preachers, college presidents, try to smile when the mau-mauing starts? It's fatal, this smiling. When some bad dude is challenging your manhood, your smile just proves that he is right and you are chickens***--unless you are a bad man yourself with so much heart that you can make that smile say, 'Just keep on talking, sucker, because I'm gonna count to ten and then squash you.'"

Obama the Flak Catcher has been transformed into a spear catcher.

Every thing said about b0 is true and it may not matter. See Star Parker's article immediately above.
We, Lucialle readers, are not the significant part of the electorate that we once were. We have to show the non-white, non-married, non-religious that b0 is just as bad for them as he is for us. No sale = no sale.

America in Decline
American Thinker, by Barry Shaw    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 3/24/2014 9:47:03 AM     Post Reply
When Barack Obama was running for president he promised, some say threatened, to fundamentally change America. The doubters now say he has fundamentally ruined America. Whichever way one views it, America is in serious decline. For a president that promised to reduce the national debt, Obama has added a massive seven trillion dollars to that debt. Under his presidency, America has accumulated as much new debt as it did in its first 227 years. He heads an Administration that produces food stamps, pries into people’s private lives, and sets government agencies against political opponents. Obama is following the guidebook of Saul Alinsky,

Jeff Bezos, the multi-billionaire (via Amazon.com) new owner of the Washington Post has got a messy situation on his hands, and unless he steps in, it appears that his new property is in danger of losing the prestige that was its primary asset. After a false hit piece on the Koch Brothers claiming they were the largest holder of Canadian oil sands land rights was devastatingly debunked by John Hinderaker of Powerline (see also: Washington Post busted!), the authors of the incorrect article responded conceding nothing, not apologizing or retracting their falsehoods, but only made their situation worse.

The Democrats’ game plan invoking Saul Alinsky’s rule # 13, “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it,” has already reached the stage of self-parody when it comes to demonizing the Koch brothers. It’s time to star mocking them ruthlessly. Case in point: The New York Times. Richard Baehr points out that in an article on a PAC backing Senate Democrats: The name Koch or Kochs comes up 14 times. And it’s not that long an article. Harry Reid’s characterization of them is of course included. But there is no attempt to identify to what degree Kochs support Americans for

Without a steady stream of water and electricity, child-care service providers who typically operate out of their own homes could go out of business. Yet, hundreds of Rhode Island residents – not to mention others across the country -- who offer these services must now pay union dues that can be used to support lobbying efforts aimed at securing anti-energy regulations at odds with their best interests. Help is on the way in the form of First Amendment legal challenges filed in other states that have worked their way up to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Adventures in Obamacareland, in which our protagonist is: - encouraged to lie and report that he did not have existing health insurance, making the number of uninsured look higher; - discovers new reasons to doubt the numbers of people reported as signing up for Obamacare; - and learns that one of the supposed reasons behind the (Un)Affordable Care Act was a total sham.

Progressives pride themselves on their highly evolved psyches, their awe-inspiring good intentions and their admirable sense of right and wrong. Indeed, so sure are they that they are right, disagreement can only be an insult. Opposition triggers instant hatred, in a chorus chanted so loudly that nothing said, no evidence presented, will be heard or considered. Indeed, in order to cement a belief, whatever the left decides to believe magically becomes new science, granted an exemption from any sort of scientific process because the leftist has declared that a consensus of leftists makes something scientific.

When we remember the Jewish children thrown alive into ditches by the Nazis and then think about the little girls outside Walmart selling cookies, it seems an offense to decency to suggest any comparison between the Bund Deutsche Madel (League of German Girls, or BDM) and the Girl Scouts. Nevertheless, both Nazism and post-1960s American feminism (neo-feminism in this essay) envision exclusionary, utopian socialist societies. Both indoctrinate girls from a young age to advance their visions. And there are parallels in structure, activities, and ethos. Changes to the Girl Scout Law reveal the core of the shifts from individually focused, morally

Ever since President Obama was elected in 2008, his administration has taken on the appearance of an “imperial presidency” while Congress has acted as a tableau of figureheads. Americans need look no further than Obama’s executive actions concerning the delay in the ObamaCare mandates, the recess appointments, and his changes in the immigration laws. President Obama had no qualms in his recent State of the Union address in declaring that he will use the power of the pen and will sidestep Congress whenever and wherever possible.

Though the Obama presidency has years to go, he has already initiated his legacy project. It’s called My Brother’s Keeper and attempts to help “at risk” young men of color – those prone to crime, mayhem, drug addiction, and fathering illegitimate children. Clearly a worthy cause, and it has already attracted $150 million in private support. The goal also seems reasonable, since unruly young men (regardless of color) have long troubled society and cures abound thanks to eons of experience. That’s the good news. The bad news is that Obama’s putative cure is a modern-day Progressive nightmare. It will fail while

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

As President Obama prepares to visit Saudi Arabia on Friday, many in the Middle East are wondering why he is making a trip with no discernible purpose. No one is quite sure what Obama is supposed to do while in Riyadh. According to the White House, in addition to a one-on-one talk with 90-year-old Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz, Obama hopes to attend a summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council. But there may be no summit — since the GCC is now badly split. The council’s members are Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar. One bloc — the
