Clueless: Obama Thought He Won Debate Until Told Otherwise

Daily Witness October 11, 2012 647

According to an article in the Daily Mail UK, President Obama walked off the stage after his underwhelming debate performance convinced he was the winner. Against the intuitive grain of 60 million viewers and a breathlessly fawning press who winced through a painfully dismal showing, Obama was content that he had delivered the rhetorical goods. He only realized he sank like a Chevy Volt dropped in water after his senior aides broke the news to the surprised, and disturbingly oblivious, Commander in Chief. Apparently, the most transparent President in history in also the least self-aware.

Senior aides had been wrought with anxiety for weeks that Obama wouldn’t fare well since he stubbornly refused to rigorously prepare: “’President Obama made it clear he wanted to be doing anything else – anything – but debate prep. He kept breaking off whenever he got the opportunity and never really focused on the event.” While campaigning in Nevada, Obama even poked fun at his own reluctance to hunker down: “ It’s a drag. They’re making me do my homework.”

Some aides anonymously revealed that Obama’s disdain for Romney runs so deep he considered preparation for the contest, and Romney as well, beneath him. His dripping contempt was palpable on the stage, as he refused to make sustained eye-contact with Romney, looking down at his shoes as if they were outfitted with a teleprompter.

In fact, the President spent much of the debate rambling through vapid talking points like he was lost in a fugue-state, tongue tied and generally torpid. It was obvious that he did not adequately prepare but now we know it wasn’t because of a demanding schedule (the day before the debate he visited the Hoover Dam instead of practicing, much to his advisors’ chagrin). He shirked what would seem like a top priority duty because he couldn’t muster even the duplicitous feint of respect for an opposing viewpoint, disgusted that someone has the audacity to challenge his ex officio proclamations.

But we learned even more than that, or at least had our growing suspicions about Obama dispositively confirmed. Despite all the contentless folderol about the virtue and wonder of bipartisan cooperation he spouted during his first campaign for president, Obama loathes dissent and only begrudgingly and condescendingly tolerates being contradicted. His brand of strident confidence crosses a line into elitist hubris, shorn of every follicle of humility, convinced that all who disagree with him are benighted fools or evil adversaries.

In other words, there is something at the heart of Obama’s animating ethos that abhors democracy, which necessarily gives free reign to a spirited exchange of competing ideas. His famous thin-skinned hypersensitivity is a symptom of a lack of self-reflection–criticism shocks him like personal offense since it never really occurs to him that he might be wrong.

And given our persistent economic doldrums, our embassies across the world on fire, Iran’s inexorable march towards a nuclear bomb, the increasingly bombastic assertiveness of China and Russia, and an unemployment rate that could only be lowered on his watch by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are good reasons for him to reconsider his convictions. But alas, he marches on into blissful oblivion, convinced he’s winning the war of ideas effortlessly, assured his floundering is perceived by the world as triumph.

This raises, even shouts out, the question: what other issues only appear to him through the filter of happy self-deceit? Does Obama really believe our enemies in the Middle East are so charmed by his swagger that they would never coordinate at attack on our embassies? Is he convinced we are grateful he has kept us unburdened by the crushing demands of regular employment? Is he under the impression Americans are thrilled they have skyrocketing health care costs, byzantine bureaucracy, and increasingly limited insurance options to cheerfully distract them from the despair of disease? Who are these nameless senior aides and why aren’t they correcting him more often?

It is hard to imagine Obama will do much better in the next debate, unless better means meaner and more aggressively mendacious. His biggest vulnerability at the podium is his dour resentment for having to be there in the first place, piqued that he should have to account for his himself before the people that elected him, that he now, at least purportedly, represents. Obama will attempt to feign interest but will only manage angry indifference–debates are for disciples of democracy, not technocratic kings.

    why do I get the feeling this article borders on WHITE SUPREMACY???? Hey maybe its just me!

      You are right. It IS just you.
      I do, however, predict that Obama’s next debate performance will be better. It would be difficult for him to do worse.

      • sara

        It has already been reported that Obama has become so jealous that he means to be the meanest he can be towards his Opponent Romney.and that means reallly MEAN. Watch out Mitt, Obama will be doing his Homework this time around…..

    • edwlh

      Yes, it is just you. Why do you libs make everything out to be about race? Romney did better than Nobama. He would also make a better president. Live with it.

      • YepSure

        It’s Obama, not Nobama. If you can’t even spell the guy’s name, your credibility is gonna take a hit.

        Sure, Obama lost the first debate badly, but Romney takes a new position every day and is either lying or misinformed on many key issues, including the feasibility of his own tax plan. Which is a more serious problem?

        • James

          Obama. That is the more serious problem. Glad I could help clear that up for ya.

        • Mr. Lee

          Wow! Yepsure, you aren’t very smart. edwith was saying Nobama on purpose……(tongue in cheek…Nobama means No Obama)

Could you be living in France where the wealthy are leaving in droves? You see OTHERS don’t want to subsidize you! Yes, you are repulsive and lazy. In America we despise people like YOU – so stay in your bankrupt Europe and be “happy”. I take it your “gay” too ….try be normal for a change and the risk of aids is reduced to nearly 0%.

      “AMERICA GET REAL”
      Bring back Obummer the Hussein so that the SHARIA could replace Democracy, Western Values could lay back so Death by Stoning could be the next legislation. Don’t take it as a doomsday prophesy, take it as a warning. He will be free to implement his IDEALS when he is under no pressure, that is unless he succeeds in changing the Constitution of America, the signs of which are not very visible only to the politically BLIND.

      • scmaize

    • James

      Obama, Truly an African-American whose African relatives probably sold Black Americans ancestors into slavery. And who today butcher each other on the African Continent. I am a poor American and I do have Cancer and I have had Open Heart Valve repair and have had cateract eye surgery and I was taken care of because I didn’t have the means to take care of it myself. America has been very good to me even without Obama care. Because as a rich and prosperous nation it could afford to help me. But how is a economically devastated America going to care for the poor? You can have all kinds of great social programs but it takes money to make them work. If you don’t understand that I can’t help. You GET REAL! And Romney never said anything like what you are saying. It is really easy to win an Argument when you get to put words in your opponents mouth.

      • hottrika

        Very well articulated. Mitt haters are just ignorant fools believing everything the media dishes out to them as Gospel.

    • hottrika

      We all saw how obummer WON.

    • James

      Clueless. Unless maybe you’re just kidding? That’s it isn’t it? Sometimes the sarcasm is just too subtle for me. Sorry if that was your intent then I apologize. Or maybe he only won because Obama is a loser? And that was a week ago and now Biden has lost, if you mean smiled a lot while lying. Oh yea the economy doing great and that Ambassador thing in Libya that Obama has been lying about for weeks. Other than the economy and foreign policy and well everything else Obama is doing a great job. Fantastic Debate performance by Both members of the Obama/Biden Clown Club.

Is this a ‘Commander-in-Chief’ who has not done a days’s duty in any Military Academy In the USA..? and with a simple nod of the head allowed the American Heroic Seals to capture Osama bin Laden when Barak Obama [sounds similar doesn't it] would not have known the first thing of how to go about it …..

      The truth is some sections of Americans are just interested in personality issues. To me it’s not about how best the candidates talk that matters. There are great distinction between speech and action. Americans should not depend their future on mere words of politicians. The truth is Americans really need help for a better future. The American problem was not created by Obama, the problem in my view started long ago but they didn’t realize it. The bush Administration really destroyed the American economy since the government per security issues over spent and was war oriented than focusing on the deficits. Likewise the banks just looking to their gain margins. America at this moment needs unity of action not just a section of politicians to use mere words to guarantee the safety of Americans. It’s not time for which party or personality to fix the problem. We shouldn’t look at parties, if then one can say the democrates will be better since Mr. Clinton fix the economy, gave it to Mr. Bush who destroyed it by going to fight an enemy that he has no direct plan to fight and rather destroyed innocent countries. I think the Obama administration is under a lot PREASURE causing the Americans not to look back and see the great jobs they are doing from inheriting an economy attacked by financial crisis whose real identity was revealed by Mr. Bush and the Wall Street etc, killing Osama who Mr. Bush used as a medium to cause collateral damage to innocent individuals and several countries

      If there were, they would not be so openly published. At any rate it has already been stated that Obama means to be his meanest and most deliberately malicious he can be in the next Round with Romey.

    Great article! Powerfully written and right on target. And let’s not forget just how far Obama’s disdain reaches – to the more than half of us that don’t support him. He can’t stand us.

    So it’s time again to show a sitting President that the power in this country ultimately resides with the people, not with him. He’ll have had his one term, and we’ll have learned a valuable lesson in the dangers of gullibility.

        I recall watching (and being amazed) at a TV reporter in a black neighborhood during the pre election run up in 2008 asking people what they thought of the Republican candidates and their promises for election..NOT ONE asked even knew who they even were,but were openly verbal that they were voting for Obama,and stated that they had never bothered to vote before…That speaks volumes.for what may just happen again this upcoming election sadly…If so …the “late great USA” will result….

      But Romney writes off 47% of the country? That who really has a disdain for their opposition!

      • Soulphoenix

        Well, some people are completely unable to separate an election strategy (that is, which voter groups to focus on) from a plan for governing once elected.

        In BOTH cases, Obama ignores those who won’t ever support him, not just in his election strategy. Hope, Change, and Unity were a carefully fabricated election LIE.

        • Sniffbandit

          I only wish Obama would ignore me. It is much worse than that. He attacks so many people. Doctors cut off legs vs treating diabetes, people that work for insurance compnaies are greedy, people that work at banks are evil, cops that arrest his friends act stupidly, anyone who works for a drug company, an oil company, coal workers, religious organizations, GM’s secured bond holders, GM’s non-union workers’ pension funds, small business owners, anyone who has worked hard and is successful. It would be fantastic to just have him leave us alone. All he seem to like are the unemployed, fire fighters, teachers and union workers. If he hasn’t come after you, your business, or where you work yet, give it time, he will.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_G7BNEBGKRKSRWA45DG6GQJFITE Arany

        He did not write them off, he said 47% will never vote for him no matter what. This is TRUE. Why is this considered “disdain”???

      • Senior8

        In truth, can you actually say that he is 100% incorrect with his statement ?
        I would suggest a disclosure of just how many Americans (legal/illegal) have/are/will continue living in the welfare world as a way of life,and have no intention of gainful employment would be very interesting to see. In most countries there is a sub-culture of “Don’t work/won’t work” and the USA is included. My statement is directed towards the Obama administration as well as the Republican,,and solely an attempt to get at the true facts.not politically driven statements…

    • political ruse

      lol gullibility yeah?

      gullibility is thinking there is any difference between obama and any future president who will replace him, they’re all just different faces of the same dictatorial government.

      lol the power is with the people? you are killing me here, how can so many people be so gullible? the people have no say in how the country is run, the slave drivers give you the illusion of choice by letting you “pick” a new president every few years, giving you an insignificant individual vote for one of two people that THEY already decided on, just to give everyone a new face to get angry at over the next few years, before it’s time tolet them angrily chase him out and replace him with another decoy… meanwhile NOTHING EVER CHANGES.

      “democracy” is nothing but a scam, a dictatorial government with a face that changes to give the illusion that the people control it, while nothing could ever possibly be further from the truth, politicians never, NEVER represent the wishes of their constituents, they have their own agendas and obligations to financial supporters, no law was ever passed because the people wanted it or lifted because the people wanted rid of, no politician works for the people, not one, they only sere themselves

Start one yourself instead of whining?

      This was not the only place where the psychology behind Obama’s behavior was was easily seen He has the personality and the character flaws of a dictator and this shows in everything he does.

      What isn’t visible was his affirmative action education. Surely he should have understood he had help all the way – or, maybe he did and that’s why he stated so strongly that,
      “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

    Not much to add here, the author of the article has delved into the disturbing psychology of Obama’s narcissistic delusion of kingship and infallibility. A trademark of all socialist/communist tyrannical want to be despots. Americans should be very afraid when this empty suit sitting in an empty chair trucks with foreign leaders who want to kill us. If what we all saw behind the podium last week is any indication of how he acts around global heads of state and terrorist leaders then we’ve been in trouble for a very long time. And the media need pay a price for the cover up as well!

        To whom do you mean “be quiet to you”?

    • http://twitter.com/TedGlassKC Ted Glass

      Yup, those terrorist leaders aren’t scared of Obama at all. Just ask Bin Laden or those Somali Pirates…

      And he’s such a tyrannical leader the way he wasn’t able to get anything past the obstructionist Republican controlled house, what a despot!

      • WingedPegasus

        Somali pirates are still in action (try and keep up with current events), Obama is the beneficiary of years of work prior to him coming to office in hunting down Osama. In fact, Obama is on record for wanting to let Gitmo detainees go and to stop the interrogation practices which lead to the info necessary to get Osama. And since you’re so tardy in your knowledge of current events, Al Qaeda is moving into all areas of the Middle East, Pakistan, and Afghanistan and guess what, Obama is funding them through his Egyptian buddies in the Muslim Brotherhood. So, no, they’re not scared. They are sending people here to vote for the dictator in chief so that they’ll have more time to complete the destruction of Israel and then go after you and then us.
        Oh, Republicans in the ONE house of our system is meaningless because the dictator uses his pen to sign executive orders to get his way and orders his various unelected departments to set up rules and regulations which the rest of us must live under regardless of how we voted. —Tyranny!

        • http://twitter.com/TedGlassKC Ted Glass

          Except the Somali pirates that captured a pirate captain and then were killed by Navy Seals. America shouldn’t be fixing the world’s problems, but when people attack us or our people we should take them down. This President has done that.

          Enhanced Interrogation techniques did not lead to the killing of bin Laden, try to keep up with current events and analysis.

          The Muslim Brotherhood is being funded? Don’t you mean the Egyptian Government. You don’t even know what that aide goes towards. In your little warped sense of reality you see Obama handing a Muslim a gun, and that Muslim handing it to al qaeda. That’s just incorrect.

          Executive orders don’t take the place of real legislation, such as the American Jobs Act. And what specific executive orders represent tyranny. The one exempting religious institutions from covering contraceptives? Should that one go? How about orders related to Human Trafficking? How about Gulf Coast restoration? Hey if congress isn’t willing to act because they’ve taken a do nothing get Obama out approach, then i approve of whatever methods available to get something done.

          • WingedPegasus

            ….Really, ask the parents of the U.S. soldiers killed by Afghan police and army regulars if anyone is paying the price. I’m sure Ambassador Stevens and the three other heroes who died with him would disagree with your assessment. And since you are behind in your current events, you should know that the current president of Egypt is the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and that the Egyptian parliament has elected a MAJORITY Muslim Brotherhood membership so, the Egyptian Government and the Muslim brotherhood are now ONE IN THE SAME. Oh, and just today the Egyptian Government (Muslim brotherhood) has called for jihad against Jerusalem. Obama’s Arab Spring is becoming a Arab Halloween nightmare. So you catch up now.
            And, if you don’t think that closing down oil production in the gulf,closing coal mines in Pa., W.Va., and Ohio without congressional oversight isn’t one man rule than I have a bridge here in Brooklyn to sell you. As far as human trafficking, what are you talking about? Saudi Arabia, North Africa, Mexico, Russia, what? Contraception? we didn’t need an executive order about that until your buddy tried to issue a REGULATION (not a bill or a law) through HHS to force religious organizations to hand out the crap.
            Finally, the last sentance in your post is a final indictment and proof of your Alinskyite, Marxist, Dictatorial proclivities. You’d go along with anything regardless of the methods to get whatever result that you want even if it involved trashing the rules of a civil society. You prove my opening point when I suggest that we Americans should all be very afraid of YOU.

            You can’t answer my questions about Egypt’s democratic process so you have to change the subject? Typical weak argument tactic.

            This “liberal media” you talk about really isn’t so liberal. They’re really just reporting the facts. He did overwhelmingly win the Latino and African-American votes. He also won the youth vote and women’s votes. The only thing he didn’t win was the old white dude vote.

            That’s exactly what Obama is doing every time he & his ADMINISTRATION turns a blind eye..case in point..Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Syria, Iran..although with Libya..for SOME reason, he decided to be proactive at all, which is amazing..without the approval of Congress which is IMPEACHABLE! He and his are the JOKE that just keeps on giving..and we will be laughing and/or crying about it for years and years to come!

          • Florida Girl

            Exactly right, Terry. Congress wasn’t even out of session for some of his signing of executive orders – it was the weekend for goodness sake.
            This election is so important, just hope all the Ted’s of the U.S. get lost on election day.

          • OregonJeff

            The President doesn’t need Congressional approval to *initiate* a strike. He only has to get approval within 30 days of the start of the strike or call it off before then. You *really* need to figure out how things work in this country.

          Sorry Ted, unless Obama kills EVERY pirate, or EVERY terrorist, he is a complete failure. Unlike President Bush, who simply had to pass the vague “he’s kept us safe” test.

          • WingedPegasus

            Unlike your friend in the white house, my political philosophy is to capture and convict in a court of law. Obama although he railed against “waterboarding” to get relevant intel has no problem just killing terrorist rather than capturing, getting info, and then trying them in a military tribunal. This president has killed more foreign citizens through surgical strikes than any president in U.S. history. In fact, the cold blooded tendencies and seeming celebratory atmosphere which surrounds the killings is unique in an American president and frankly, lends to the conclusion that we are dealing with a darkly sick administration reminiscent of Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot. So, stop obsessing over Bush, it’s 2012 not 2008.
            Please tell me that you’re not going to vote more than twice this November or how about this, why not stay home because you are just not informed enough to vote at all. You dilute the vote of all of us who actually know that there is trouble within our nation.

          • http://twitter.com/Briant1 Briant1

            You really turned me around on this whole thing. I hope to someday be as “informed” as all you guys. It’s truly amazing that you can ascertain my level of voter information from a 2 sentence post. Personally I’d bet I’m as informed if not more so than you guys, but since I probably don’t vote the way you guys do, I’m assuming that automatically means I’m an idiot by default. In your world.

            You guys keep knocking things around your echo chamber, reinforcing each others opinion that you are making America a better place, and the rest of us will somehow try to muddle through, lacking your keen intellect and superior wit.

            Oh, and I’ll knock off the comparisons to Bush. I realize it’s been 4 years, and frankly I’m embarrassed. The Right never mentioned Bill Clinton after 2000, so I guess I’ll just follow their shining example.

            Hitler’s campaign slogan was “Forward.” Get it?

            Um, so what? Hitler killed his political opponents in the night of the long knives, encouraged violence against Jews, intellectuals, gypsies, gays and other minorities, created concentration camps killing millions, promoted hatred and went on a bloodthirsty rampage to conquer his neighbors in a feverish attempt to take over the world. Obama seeks consensus, works within the law, and is seeking a stronger social contract that includes everyone doing their share. Your comparison is spurious.

          • Katie

            Your statement that Obama works within the law is a laughable, to say the least. He bypasses Congress with his freakin’ “executive orders” and if something “smells,” he invokes “executive privilege.” Social Contract? Fair share, bla bla bla. Life isn’t fair and isn’t meant to be. Get over it.

            INITIALLY, the German people LOVED Hitler. He gave them free stuff. First thing was “healthcare.” Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

            This man is on a mission to destroy our once-great country, and people like you are making it possible. In the meantime, continue believing what you want to believe. But you might want to pay some attention to BENGHAZI.

          • Florida Cracker

            Well, it appears that Obama does not call a terriorist a terriorist – he just can’t bring himself to say it. He bows to the King of Saudi Arabia, he states before the United Nations that the name of the prophet should not be blemished, that the call to prayer is the most beautiful sound on earth—face it, he’s a Muslim. He likes the Muslim Brotherhood, he has aided them in coming into power after the start of the Arab Spring movement. Then he acts so surprised and sits with his mouth open when they attack our embasy and kill our Ambassador and others in a cleverly planned attack, the the big O doesn’t get it? or he just plain lied. I favor the second option here. He was taught the Koran when he was a child and knows what happens to anyone not believing it. They are killed, killed, killed. It’s predictable.

            “We are not at war with Islam.. we are at war with Al-Qaida ” consistent claim by Obama. Well guess what Odumba…They are Islamic !!

          • OregonJeff

            It’s irrelevant that they’re Islamic.

            The KKK is Christian. Hitler was Christian, too. Are we at war with Christians then, too?

          • Senior8

            Irrelevant that they are part of the Islamic goal to make the world Islamic ?! I suggest that you read the Qu’ran (as I have) to get an idea of what Islam is all about…

          • OregonJeff

            I suggest you read the Bible (as you clearly haven’t if you think the Qu’ran is the only “holy” book demanding world domination).

          • Senior8

            Please fill me in on the latest murders,be-headings,,bombings and terrorism that the Bible has “Christians”involved in!. and yes, I have read the Bible, but it very obvious that you haven’t read the Qu’ran whose extremist followers are carrying out the atrocities in the name of Islam. Have you not noticed the deathly silence and lack of Muslims out in the streets protesting about the atrocities carried out in the name of Islam ?. Print a cartoon though……,or say ANYTHING about Mohammed ,and see their reaction. The peaceful ideology(not religion)…Continue to keep your head in the sand and one day you may just have to learn to speak Arabic and adhere to Sharia law…

          • OregonJeff

            All one has to do is look at Africa to see lots of really bad things being done by Christians in the name of god. That you call it an ideology and not a religion is quite telling. If that were the case, Christianity is only an ideology, too.

          • Senior8

          This was the moment that I realised you were a nutcase. I guess I’m on the wrong website if 70 people agree with that statement.
          “Oh, Republicans in the ONE house of our system is meaningless” – yes, how dare Obama pass executive orders when he was elected to do so! He was elected to pass legislation. Republicans refuse to let him pass legislation because they’re still back in the 20th century.

          You are aware the rest of the world laughs at your Republican Party right? We turn into FOX News if we want a laugh. I love liberty! But if you guys still think that you have an amazing health care system when it’s one of the worst in the developed countries list, and ignore the social benefits to Obamacare so you can keep labeling him a ‘socialist/communist/dictator/Hitler.’

          He’s not a Muslim. He’s clearly a Christian. He doesn’t support the Muslim Brotherhood. Have you ever considered he’s just a man like anyone else, trying to do the best by his country? If you want to attack his policies, sure, by all means go ahead. You’re entitled to do so. I implore you take part of the political process, you have a right to do so. But when you spread ignorance like this, you make the rest of the world sit back and laugh.

            Obama may be a Christian, though I strongly doubt it, but he’s a man who sat for 20 years listening to
            the sermons of his “CLOSE FRIEND AND MENTOR”, the anti-Semitic, ANTI-WHITE RACIST, Rev. Jeremiah Wright; a man who cursed America. (“God DAMN America”, remember? !)

            And don’t forget Michelle’s comment when Obama was nominated: “this is the first time I’ve felt proud of America.” A wonderful First Lady.

Oh that’s right you would die waiting in line or they will use equipment from the stoneage. Also you will still love Obama’s social benefits for everyone when YOU will be paying more and more and more and more for the folks that aren’t contributing at all. They don’t need to, you are doing it for them! As long as they keep getting their Iphones and flat screen TV’s they are happy. Oh and keep being enamored with Obama’s foreign policies….He is in bed with lots of dictators and bows to every world leader..that’s a good thing.
            As far as Obama being a Christian, now I am sitting back and laughing @ YOU! You are right, the Lord Jesus Christ surely is for abortion in the 3rd trimester….It’s not a baby, only a blob of tissue~

The truth is being spread and laugh all you want – the rest of the world does not love Obama as much as you do. When they laugh, it’s because of uninformed people like you. Obama is a muslim, and he is trying his best to dismantle our country. I hope you get your days mixed up and miss election day Nov. 6 or just get lost driving to the polls.

            U.S aid to Egypt as of 9-14-2012 (3 days after the burning of our flag and the breaching of our embassy wall in Cairo) is 450 million dollars, twice the amount given when Egypt was considered one of our allies. I’ve been to Egypt and I’ve been to Cairo, I’ve had interaction with the people there, how about you? And, if you are calling me a nut case because of my factual representation that the new Egyptian government is now controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood (the parent organization of Al qaeda) then you my friend are the delusional one here. Also, your implication that I’ve suggested that Obama is a Muslim is a typical Alinskyite ploy to lie and change the subject. I haven’t stated that here, but I do know that after Obama received pleas from Egyptian Coptic Christians for help and relief from being murdered and having their churches burned down that Obama decided to increase aid from 250 million to 450 million. Of course in your world, we shouldn’t make much of that, but we can make fun of FOX news (which I rarely watch, my news comes from the Internet ). Also, you have demonstrated your lack of knowledge of how government works when you state that the president “passes executive orders”. That was my point, he doesn’t need to “pass” anything. He signs a “order” and no one has a right to say a thing about it. Well, that may be okay in some parts of the world, but we in America like to have a discussion and have our laws go through a check and balance system. See, we don’t like dictators over here. You mentioned “Hitler”, sounds like a guilty conscience because I certainly didn’t mention him in my post; or, will you say I had regardless? (probably).And finally, you imploring me to take part in the political system. I won my first election in 1981 and went on to win two more after that. It was the people who voted for me not a gang of thugs with batons standing in front of a polling place in South Philly. So you just run along, spread your Guy Fawkes, neo com/socialist brand of anarchy to someone who is dull enough to actually believe in your cynicism.

            You’re not actually interested in the facts. You’re just hoping I’ll be foolish enough to let you derail this conversation by talking about whether the sources of my info are part of a “liberal media” or “in the bag for Obama”, etc. Nice try, troll.

        Nor pasr the Demonrat House and Senate for 2 years other than the ACA which will be radically changed in Jan. due to popular demand. Four wasted years and trillions of wasted dollars.

        • Robert Illes

          The “Two Years of Democratic Congress” which supposedly means just SO much could be done is just another lame right wing talking point. First the Democrats also included (and still do) conservative obstructionists such as Ben Nelson, Bill Nelson, Mary Landrieu, Blanche Lincoln, Joe Lieberman, Max Baucus, etc. They are why we lost the “public option” in health care. Second, Ted Kennedy and Robert Byrd were ill most of the time (i.e., till January 2011). Third Al Franken’s election was held up by bogus recounts before he could be seated as #60. There was only a brief window when there were 60 Democrat Senators, but still subject to the filibuster. They did manage to pass the ACA, thank God. And then, Kennedy died and the great Scott Brown was elected, and Byrd was replaced by a similarly right wing Democrat in West Virginia. And the rest of the time, true to this day, the Republicans followed Mitch McConnell’s dictum to block EVERYTHING Obama advanced because their STATED primary purpose was not jobs, energy, infrastructure, education, housing, relief or anything else positive for the American people, but rather, “making sure Obama is a one term President”. That unpatriotic, treacherous “strategy” was determined at a meeting of Rethugs on January 20, 2009 – not a rumor, fact copped to by Newt Gingrich, right wing hero.

            I love the way you guys talk about Scott Brown’s election, in MASSACHUSETTS, in the ‘KENNEDY SEAT,’ as if it was just a random weather event. It was a DAMNING indictment of the profound FAILURE of the modern Democratic Party to listen to voters, to be accountable, to work with the other members of Congress to accomplish durable legislation, to GOVERN.
            After the 2010 midterms, Obama admitted his party had gotten a ‘shellacking.’ What lessons did he learn? Apparently, only that if people think they have an alternative they’ll vote for it – which is why he’s spent the last two years trying to convince voters they don’t have an alternative. The man is the most profoundly anti-democratic leader this country has ever seen. Huey Long could give him lessons in humility; Malcolm X in civility. Except, of course, Obama can’t take lessons from anyone. He’s a lecturer, not a listener.

          • Florida Cracker

            Yes, he’s a lecturer and he does not like it when someone disagrees or opposes him. Just think about his facial expressions the night of the Presidential Debate. Can’t wait for the next temper tantrum, he can’t take someone standing up to him and having the gall to disagree with him.

          • Senior8

            Talk about facial expressions !?…How about the laughing,sneering,, condescending,eye rolling ,gaffe prone liability Biden ?!..I thought I was watching Edgar Bergen’s dummy Charley MCarthy…Democrats still insist that Biden won the debate with Ryan ,who outclassed Biden without even opening his mouth. !

            He’s is only a listener (but doesn’t hear) when he hasn’t rehearsed and hasn’t his trusty teleprompter with him !.It was such a pleasure and confirmation on the debate with Romney when Obama had the look of a deer caught in the headlights at night,but still the Dem “lemmings” will blindly follow !

          • Florida Cracker

            In a way, that is what is so sad about it. These staunch Obama supporters just don’t know what radical islamists want to do to all non-believers. They will find out the hard way that their goal is to take over control of the world and they are taught from childhood to hate and kill.

Thank you for bringing up this point, It is very true that not everyone who disagrees with the golden one is a conservative. But that’s their strategy – name Dems who do not agree with Obama are standing up for what’s right.

          • Morpheus

            Thanks Florida Girl and Terry Gingo. I often vote Democrat on the local levels here in Delaware, but presidentially, I am going with Romney and Ryan. It’s a shame and a disappointment regarding how this administration has gone, and even worse how he has chosen to try and explain what he has done, or rather, not bother explaining but simply try attacking the other candidate. It’s embarrassing how he, and even more, Biden, have been acting, but you’re absolutely correct that it doesn’t take far-right partisanship to oppose Obama at this point. It really takes maturity and principle right now.

That’s how he got the ACA, as well as all the backroom deals. And don’t forget Bart Stupak, who was promised no money for abortions for his vote, well we all know how that promise stood don’t we? The Dems. were in charge the last two years under Bush, used an Omnibus spending bill instead of a budget. Still haven’t passed a budget under Obama after how many years is it now? I hope to The God Almighty, that he is a one term president.

You just laid out a pretty succinct and truthful history of the obstacles any progressive legislation faced during Obama’s first term but conservatives will never acknowledge that.

Then the Americanpeople decided that the Dems behavior was not honorable and overwhelmingly voted the Dems out and gave the Republicans the majority in the house.

      • fd1001

        I just find unbelievable people blaming the congress. People are being brainwashed to forget how a democracy works.
        In just about every democracy (and I mean EVERY) the legislative is as a legitimate a power as the executive. It is also elected by the people – it doesn’t and never was intended only to endorse the executive.

        And, the chief of the executive is also the political leader of the government, and is responsible for negotiation with congress to get what he wants, it is part of his job. People blame Bush for the war in Iraq – and with good reason – even though congress approved of it, but it was his responsibility to get it approved (and also, all the other mess), so he got the blame, deservedly.

        This is the most elementary fact of a democracy, there is something wrong when a full grown-up politician pass on the blame on to the legislative and is supported a-criticaly by the press and a large number of people. A pity, America was such a nice dream.

        • Florida Girl

          Well, until the Obama mess, America was a success. He has done nothing good for us or to us. It seems people don’t really know how the government is supposed to work.

They both like baseball, and they both like to be able to earn lots of money and spend it as they please. The rich aren’t the ‘job creators’ they claim to be, and the poor really need to pull themselves up by the bootstraps. Basically, both sides are right, and both are wrong. That’s okay.

          • captaindash

            That makes no sense. If we are self sufficient with our Canadian supply of oil, why would we compete for American oil just because America one day produces more? If you have a home garden and produce enough carrots for your family, would you really feel the need to buy carrots from me because I produce twice as much? BTW, I did say hi 2 my mom 4 you (as your name suggests). She smiled and remembered all the good times.

          • SayHi2YourMom4Me

            Converse logic applies. If the US becomes the biggest oil producer, why would we compete for YOUR oil as you said? Please, spare me your retarded carrot stories. Oil is bought and sold on the international market anyway by big traders and it can potentially come from anywhere that produces it. I mean, it’s not really something I’m an expert in, but I’m pretty sure Canada is exporting and importing oil and fuel all over the place, just like everyone else is. Oh, and please spare me your retarded carrot stories.

          • captaindash

            Uh…..stay in school. The ‘reverse logic’ theory makes even less sense than your first comment, silly. I never said you’d compete for oir oil if you produced enough for yourselves. Maybe I’ll type slower. Silly American. The carrot logic still applies because as of now, we export oil to you. If that situation changes, and the oil sands up here dry out, we will import oil from you. See, this is why the world hates America (and I’ve lived in So Cal and travelled all over the US so I am well versed in American collective thought). They hate you because no matter what, you have to justify everything where America comes out on top. If you’re attacked, it’s because the world is jealous of your freedoms. If you’re broke, it’s because you have to police the world blah blah blah. I lived there during sept 11th. I can’t count how often I heard the term “sleeping giant”. Really? Nobody awoke the sleeping giant. The wars fought since were a dismal failure and are bankrupting you. That sucks for Canada since we are America’s number one trading partner. By a considerable margin, I might add. Most Americans think China is all that economically matters to ya’ll, yet your chilly hat of a neighbour trades hundreds of billions more with you. Yes, we are very influential, and until 2020, you’ll be importing oil from us. And water. Probably carrots too. So play nice.

          • SayHi2YourMom4Me

            Whoops did I get a little nasty? “Play nice” goes both ways. Sorry for trying to come out on top, you know, up until right now I thought that was something that people in general liked to do, but I suppose it’s just an American thing like you said. Look, you did say “enjoy competing for our oil” or something along those lines… so what do you think is going to happen when your number one trading partner becomes a net exporter in a decade or two? I never insulted Canada. I never claimed to know stuff about Canadians or assumed I know how they all thought. If you want to play nice, then play nice!

            Really? You can identify a communist visually? That’s incredible especially considering your latest sighting involves the man at the head of the wealthiest capitalist democracy of all time. If you wanna split hairs, America technically isn’t totally capitalist. In all of North America you pay a large percentage of your wages to the government who redistributes it. Therefore they’re socialist democracies. And yes, there are marxists in every country. Just like there are child molesters in every country. Doesn’t mean Obama is a communist. Stay in school.

            Obozo’s background should tell you a lot. Unfortunately, the cheer-leading liberal media continues to cover for him. Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals were implemented during the campaign. See the movie 2016 Obama’s America, The Hope and the Change, and lastly, why don’t you read his books. In his own words, he said he will “side with the Muslims when the political winds shift.” The people in Germany loved Hitler too. So you can attack me all you want. There are so many disturbing facts about this fraud in the WH it is frightening. But instead of paying attention to these conveniently hidden facts, you chose to instead believe the attack ads that targeted Mr. Romney, most of which were out and out lies.

            You really think he’ll “side with the Muslims when the political winds shift”? You really think he said that in one of his books? Why don’t you respond with the name of the book and the page number we can all find it on.

            Obama has a great record to run on. Romney was the one telling all the lies. It’s unfortunate that you can’t see that. Now, you can sit there and complain or you can get to work with the majority that voted for Obama and get this country moving forward.

          • Katie

            Anyone who was MENTORED by a Communist makes me wonder about their thinking. Our belief systems are formed in childhood.

            I posted the quote from the book a few minutes ago.

            If he had such a great record to run on, why didn’t he just campaign by bragging about this “record”? He even said when he was a senator that those with no record to run on just attack their opponents.

            This “majority” you speak of is a laugh. Not exactly a landslide, far from it. I’m not “getting to work” with his supporters. I firmly disagree with his policies, and there are many others that feel the same way, the other half of the country.

            Other than that, I won’t continue this debate since I have bigger fish to fry. I’ll not continue arguing with idiots. It’s a waste of time. Instead I’m preparing for what is going to happen to this country. Watch and see…

          • OregonJeff

            So now Alinsky was a communist? What *exactly* is a communist? Interestingly, Alinsky was asked in an interview if he’d ever considered joining the Communist Party. This was his response:

            “Not at any time. I’ve never joined any organization—not even the ones I’ve organized myself. I prize my own independence too much. And philosophically, I could never accept any rigid dogma or ideology, whether it’s Christianity or Marxism. One of the most important things in life is what Judge Learned Hand described as ‘that ever-gnawing inner doubt as to whether you’re right.’ If you don’t have that, if you think you’ve got an inside track to absolute truth, you become doctrinaire, humorless and intellectually constipated. The greatest crimes in history have been perpetrated by such religious and political and racial fanatics, from the persecutions of the Inquisition on down to Communist purges and Nazi genocide.”

            Further, there’s no way Obama could have been mentored by Alinsky. Obama was born in 1961. He was in Hawaii until the age of 6. Then he moved to Indonesia. He returned to Hawaii in 1971 at the age of 10. Alinsky died in 1972. Not much opportunity to be mentored, is there?

            You “quoted” something earlier, but you didn’t indicate which book or what page I can find it on. You won’t either, because it isn’t in any of his books. Nice try though.

            If you think Obama didn’t run on his record, you weren’t paying attention to anything he said this election cycle. He talked about reducing unemployment. He talked about ending the war in Iraq and the drawdown in Afghanistan. He talked about getting Bin Laden. He talked about saving the auto industry. He talked about repairing and strengthening our foreign relations. He talked about strong sanctions against Iran. He talked about numerous things on his record.

            Yes, a majority is still a majority. He won by approximately 3% of the vote. Why does it have to be a landslide for you to get on board?

            I suspect you “firmly disagree with his policies” because you’re grossly misinformed about what those policies are. Maybe start by turning off Fox News, Glenn Beck, and Rush Limbaugh.

            By “prepare for what is going to happen to this country” you mean sit on your hands while progressives get to work and get things done, right?

          • Katie

            Obozo was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis. Davis was a friend of Obobo’s grandparents, who were also Communists.

            Obozo was registered in Hawaii when he was four days old. That’s why he uses a “certificate of live birth.” Anyone could get one in Hawaii at the time … it didn’t matter WHERE they were born.

            Just keep believing his BS. “HE” didn’t get Bin Laden. The Navy Seals did. “HE” didn’t “save” the auto industry. The TAXPAYERS did and they are STILL owed billions of dollars.

            And yeah, uh-huh, “HE” sure has strengthened our relationship with Israel. The animosity he has exhibited toward “Bebe” is blatantly obvious.

            And on and on… You really give this man too much credit. I just don’t buy his story. You’ve made your choice. It wasn’t mine and I’ll stick with that belief.

          • OregonJeff

            You have any proof that A) Frank Marshall Davis was a mentor of Obama or that B) Davis or Obama’s grandparents were Communists?

            Can you define Communist?

            Obama was born in Hawaii. If you’re going to go the whole birther route then you clearly have no attachment to reality.

            Yes, the Navy Seals were the ones who actually got Bin Laden. Historically speaking, however, Obama will get the credit for that every bit as much as previous presidents have been given credit for things accomplished under their leadership.

            The same is true for the auto industry. The American taxpayer doesn’t get any credit whatsoever. The American taxpayer didn’t want anything to do with the bailout. However, it’s the President’s leadership that resulted in that bailout happening. Historically speaking, he will get credit for it. Yes, there’s still some money owed in those bailouts, but it’s secured in preferred stock. As GM continues to grow, that stock value will continue to grow. At some point, the government can sell that stock and recoup any outstanding balance owed.

            I don’t know where you get this idea that he’s exhibited animosity towards Israel or Bibi Netanyahu (it’s not “Bebe”).

            You should quit listening to the crap on FOX.

          • DB1954

            Frank Marshall Davis was Obama’s “mentor” from age 10 to about 18. He was also his biological father. Look at the pics of Davis and Obama Jr., then look at Obama Sr. Junior looks NOTHING like his alleged father, and almost a dead ringer for Davis.

          • DB1954

            Alinsky purposively refused to say that he was a communist. That was and is still today his strategy. Alinsky never admitted what he really was–a Marxist.

          • OregonJeff

            Or, perhaps the more reasonable response is that he wasn’t a communist and didn’t see any value in being labeled.

            Oh, and “is still his strategy today”? You do know that Alinsky died many years ago, right?

            I find it curious that you somehow magically know that he was a Marxist.

        The nightmare was the one Bush created with his incompetence, allowing over 3000 people to die, allowing the debt to escalate, allowing Wall Street to go wild while we almost went into another depression. Thanks alot Republicans!

        • bytebear

          Ironically, each of those things can be attributed to Democratic decisions, from Clinton decimating our military and failing to pursue Bin Laden, to the regulations of Fanny and Freddy which caused the housing bubble (thanks to Barney Frank), to congress switching sides from Rep to Dem in ’06 which then changed policies despite Bush, which caused the economic meltdown.

          • Senior8

            Please explain how President Clinton “let him go”.

            Then, for extra credit, explain why Bush when *actually* quit looking for Bin Laden and said he wasn’t a priority how that *wasn’t* “letting him go”.

            You mad because Obama (a Democrat) got the job done?

          • Senior8

            USN Seals “got the job done” and don’t even try to say Obama got the job done even though he claims it !!…….Obama has as much knowledge about the US military as Big Bird… Oh wait….he calls USN medics (Corpsmen) “Corpse men” and also the USN has “ships” underwater….the dumb ass doesn’t even know that they are called submarines and they are “boats!” Of course he knows how to sign his name and that was the extent of his participation/knowledge..The military “got the job done” and don’t forget it !
            Some Commander-in-Chief” !

          • OregonJeff

            Sure they got the job done. They didn’t send themselves, however. They didn’t authorize the programs that got the intel they needed. They didn’t authorize Bin Laden’s capture or death. Obama did all that.

            If you’re going to make the case that Obama doesn’t get at least some credit for getting Bin Laden, then you can’t also say Clinton gets the credit for letting him go.

            “Not to mention that President “Slick Willy” Clinton had Bin Laden and let him go…or has everyone forgot ?1..”

            Yeah, just like that.

            Guaranteed Obama has more military knowledge than you do. You’re being petty about his mispronouncing “corpsman”. I’m sure you’ve never mispronounced a word in your life. His reference to “ships” was intentional. He was mirroring Romney’s ridiculous statements about “ships”. Obama knows they’re called submarines. He said “We have these ‘ships that go underwater’. They’re called nuclear submarines.”

            If this is the best you’ve got against Obama, you might as well quit because this is pathetic.

          • Senior8

            You’re absolutely right …My knowledge gained from 30 years in the USN count for nothing. !.Thanks for your expertise on EVERYTHING……another “arm chair” general. the US is full of them ! “Fall out you’re dismissed” !…. …….

          • Sam_Dobermann

            This is just silly. The military cutback was done during Bush I when Cheney was SecDef: it was their “peace dividend” and needed to make the deficit look smaller.

            Barney Frank had nothing to do with the housing bubble; as a Democrat he had no power to do much to even affect legislation. Besides, neither Fannie nor Freddy make housing loans. It was George W Bush with his goal of putting 5.5 million minority families into their “own” home as part of his “Ownership society” that did it. George even order banks and mortgage brokers to come up with more “creative” ways to finance home buying. it was george Bush who said that not having a down payment or having poor credit shouldn’t mean you couldn’t buy a home. (Look up GW Bush’s press release on Oct 15, 2003 and others available in his archives.) George Bush blew the housing bubble.

            The housing market started to crash in 2006, however the Democrats didn’t take office until January 2007 and Old Bush found and used his veto pen. Policies hardly changed.

            You have been given pith poor talking points. Pathetic Republicans,

            There are two types of Republicans, the rich and the stupid. The rich ones strive to keep the stupid ones stupid and the stupid ones strive to keep the rich ones rich.

      Owe bama…..really? Ok fact time the debt will be at about $16.5 trillion dollars thats $5.9 trillion more than when he took office. Ok math time. When Bush came to office we had no debt in fact we were $2 trillion dollars in the black. So 16.5-5.9=10.6(the debt when bush left office) 10.6+2= 12.6. Ok that is 12.6 trillion dollars that Bush burned thru so even if you take Obamas debt and double it its still less than bush. Romeny wants the same finacial policies as the bush admin and that is what you want for the country a possible $25.2 trillion debt instead of a $16.9 trillion dollar debt..you people confuse me to no end.

            Sen. Obama, who has taught courses in constitutional law at the University of Chicago, has regularly referred to himself as “a constitutional law professor,” most famously at a March 30, 2007, fundraiser when he said, “I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution.” A spokesman for the Republican National Committee immediately took exception to Obama’s remarks, pointing out that Obama’s title at the University of Chicago was “senior lecturer” and not “professor.”

            No real argument so you go back to name calling. Pitiful argument. We should then reply Idiot Wrapped in a Moron Democrat? Makes as much sense as your statement about Republicans. Try getting some intelligence into the conversation, please. Name calling, like cussing, indicates a lack of vocabulary.

          He may be a Harvard professor, but he acts childish. How do you know he is not jealous of Romney? He acts like he dislikes white people and the minister he had for 20 years preached racism and hate for whites. Even said “Gxd Dxxn the United States of America”. It would be easier to leave race out of this if Obama would. We are all grown up here but not every one acts like it, including our petulent president.

      • DianaPawelski

        You are so right. BO is a MULATTO. He is not black just because he doesn’t embrace his mother’s side. He will always be a Mulatto. RACE HAS NOTHING TO DO with us not liking BO. SAD that a lot of these people don’t KNOW WHAT THE WORD RACIST MEANS. Before they start calling us racist they need to look the word up.

        Didn’t you hear the speech to a black audience where he told them that the black people in New Orleans affected by Hurricane Katrina were not well taken care of because they were black? Obama himself brings race into it when it suits his purpose, which is quite often.

        In the last election, 95% of blacks voted for Obama and 47% of whites voted for McCain. Had 95% of the whites voted for McCain, we’d have heard that he was elected by “white racists”.

        So we can truly say Obama was elected by black racists.

        • waraji

          What you just said is inconsistent.

          So, “Had 95% of the whites voted for McCain…”, it would be wrong to call them “white racists” ? I agree with you.

          But then it is also wrong to call the 95% of blacks voting for Obama racist.

How did he become a multi-millioinaire in office? How were he and his wife capable of making well over 200k a year while she “worked” in a law office and he “worked” with the community teaching them how to register to vote(Acorn)??

    Ha ha what a load of biased crap. Politics in america is more of a joke than in England. Most of these people commenting don’t base their comments on political sense but rather they predetermine thier candidate before the argument has started. Politics isn’t taking a side and sticking to it through thick and thin, Thats sports!!

    Obama isn’t the best, Romney will be worse! So to all you Die hard republicans! Sports are more fitting a hobby than politics. If you want to support one team whether right or wrong.

    To my republican “friends” The last guy you put in power was Bush!!! Can you not see how hypocritical it is to judge Obama so harshly so soon after he took power from your candidate!! He couldn’t run a shop let alone the USA.

    Republicans you do not have any grounds to judge Obama harshly even though he is crap. As a Brit I have more right given the idiots you’ve voted in so recently.

            Nancy Pelosi, press
            conference, September 7, 2006:

            Even if [Osama bin Laden] is caught tomorrow, it is five years too late. He has done more damage the longer he has been out there. But, in fact, the damage that he has done . . . is done. And even to capture him now I don’t think makes us any safer.

            After ST6 dispatched OBL Nancy Pelosi said this:

            The death of Osama bin Laden marks the most significant development in our fight against al-Qaida. . . . I salute President Obama, his national security team, Director Panetta, our men and women in the intelligence community and military, and other nations who supported this effort for their leadership in achieving this major accomplishment. The death of Osama bin Laden is historic.

      • AKdoc

        TJ:
        I suggest that you do further research into this operation…you will find that when BHO was informed that BinLaden had been found he did not immediately say ‘take him out’, no he said, “I need to sleep on this”; the Seal Team was frustrated by his inability to make a decision and say ‘go’.
        Remember please that as an Illinois state senator he was present for 126 votes on various bills, he voted ‘ay or nay’ only four times’ and ‘present’ 122 times…sounds like a man who has trouble making decisions.

        I also recommend that you read the April 30, 2012 Wall Street Journal piece by the US Attorney General, Michael Mukasey, entitled ‘Obama and Bin Laden Bragging Right’s. You will read that BHO played CYA to the point where he positioned himself with a responsibility escape clause. In a memo from then CIA director Leon Panetta where-in the president authorized the operation is this escape clause, “The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRavens hands”. Which is to say, if the operation went wrong, the fault would be Admiral McRaven’s and not the presidents.

        Here are the Narcissist-in-chiefs own words in describing his role in this highly dangerous mission being carried out by Seal Team 6:
        “I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority . . . even as I continued our broader effort. . . . Then, after years of painstaking work by my intelligence community I was briefed . . . I met repeatedly with my national security team . . . And finally last week I determined that I had enough intelligence to take action. . . . Today, at my direction . . .”. A person hearing this description might think the man carried out the operation by himself. Yet the sad message is that other presidents (from Abe Lincoln and Dwight D. Eisenhower to George W. Bush) when it came time for them to give their victory speeches you will not find one mention of their role; all credit was given to the soldiers who actually caused the victory.
        Just thought you might be interested or at least hope you will be interested enough to research the issue.

          Actually, the statement isn’t meant to say anything other than what it explicitly says. Has any president given an order for military action and not left the actual strategic operation to our military commanders? If so, enlighten us.

          Only in a world where we celebrate our own uncompromising and irrational disdain for the opposition do we interpret commonplace statements as “escape clauses.”

            You ask that I name one soldier who has the gonads to stand up to his C-I-C &/or Brass for his beliefs: most recently, General Ham of the Africa Corps who was just relieved of duty, by his second in command for his stand on saving the Bengazi Survivors…

            by Fear.

            I found it on the WND website…it is interesting as it gives military background initially and then gets into specifics that support the generals thinking. I hope you take the time to read it…one past and present example he cites as evidence is extremely close to my heart…as a field combat corpsman (medic) with the Marines I know all to well the miracle known as ‘Dust-Off Medical Evac’s” and the countless lives they have saved, the general supports his hypothesis of fear based on BHO’s new Medivac Rules…he then speaks to the Bengazi fiasco.

            Bottom line for me, PG, is my belief that Obama is a ‘Ruler not a Leader’.

          actually he brought up alot of stuff and pretending like it didnt happen doesnt make it go away he presented bill after bill after bill to the Republicans and you know what they did they said piss off we are going to vote on abortion over and over and over and over and over then we are going to talk about ending planned parent hood because they do abortions. Ok smart guy tell me this when that 16 year old girl gives birth to an unplanned child (that could have been avoided had she had some free condoms) and does not have the means to care for it what would you have her do. Now since im sure that you would end all food assistance we can cross that off. Ok easy right? Get a Job, crap she cant do that either because she cant pay for someone to watch her child because her childcare assistance is Social Welfair. Cant have that taking care of our own crap going on, slash it. Medicaid goes because its a hand out right. Ok so we now have a prostitute mom with a kid that has no vaccines or medical care. And its not just one its happening all over the place. What dont like my story? Try this one 16 year old girl goes to PP askes for condoms uses condom does not get pregnant at 16 goes to school gets good job…you get the picture ending PP because they offer abortion (a legal safe RIGHT) as a last Option is like throwing away a $100 bill because you dont like the color green. The America you are talking about is not a good place it is a place of suffering and pain for millions if you did your research and by research i dont mean what fox news says you would see that chances are the policies Romney is talking about are going to affect you but not in the good way you think it will. He is out for him and his rich buddies he does not give a shit about you and that is a fact. You people talk about small gov right? Ok here is an idea get your gov out of my girl parts…OK? Why women or people making less than 1million a year would vote for this guy is baffling. Fox is not news I’m sorry its not it is propaganda flat out. know how you know? Everything these people talk about is somehow linked to one man and his evil plan. There is no evil plan you idiot take off the tin foil hat and join us here in reality.

          • Matt A.

            It’s hard to take this seriously due to all the grammar and spelling “oddities”. But honestly, thinking Republicans want to leave everyone who is living through tough circumstances to fend for themselves or die is fallacious. Maybe a select few radicals, but hating your fellow man and not wanting to help is not a common trend among any American. While I think some aspects of PP are unnecessary or wasteful, some of it is beneficial. Reforming/reorganizing it is much closer to what would actually be done.

            Also, this “war on women” is just ridiculous. “Discrimination” has nothing to do with any political party, and should be eliminated outright. I feel as though some feminists are pushing for more than just equal rights however; similar to how Affirmative Action is “equal” for all races (fyi, it’s not). I am all for equal rights for everyone, but giving certain people privileges just because they are different (except for people with actual conditions that need aid, such as the disabled, elderly, or people with severe mental conditions) is, to borrow a liberal phrase, “a bunch of malarkey”.

            As for jihadist Muslims (not the whole Muslim faith), I think the president is ignorant of the mindset of these people. Appeasement, weakness, non-intervention; none of that will discourage them or make them think “Oh, maybe America’s not so bad after all.” They think of us as the “Great Satan”, whereas Israel is only the “Little Satan”. Israel is closer, and surrounded by Muslim countries that have radical inhabitants, so they see the true face of jihadist terrorists on a daily basis. Hopefully, in the case that President Obama is reelected, he will see them for what the really are thanks to the embassy attack in Libya.

            I don’t think the president is a bad guy, just not a very effective or knowledgeable leader. So if he wants to champion women’s rights, aid for lower-income Americans and the elderly, then do it. Just don’t do it instead of doing the job of the president.

            -this is coming from a young, post-college programmer who is disillusioned with the current president and would like to see better, positive changes. Slow economic growth and more social programs is not really a positive change. I don’t think Obama still has the younger voter demographic in his camp; most people I know (pretty much all independent) are voting Romney; because at least he has his priorities straight.

        Obama was a community organizer when the Intel search for Bn Laden was in place as.Clinton had him and let him go in the ’90s !!!…..Navy Seals killed Bin Laden under the order of Obama as required (as he is CIC of the armed forces) by being POTUS. Did he do that on his own knowledge/efforts ? Of course not!,,,that is what military intel is all about, so let’s not .give him the credit for what the military did.!.

            OK, so it’s ok for the president to claim full responsibility for “getting Bin Laden”, but a business man who actually works his whole life, risks HIS life savings, mortgages HIS house, employs and pays taxes and health benefits for 50 people, and yes, thinks he deserves to takes a profit, if he is lucky… Well.. according to our preident, “he didn’t build that”.. !!!.. An I’m sure you are OK with that… right? You ok with all the obvious outright lies half truths, baseless attacks and contradictions ? Your OK with the Media giving him a free pass on everything.. not accountabiltiy what so ever.. Your OK with him being able to say enything he chosses, facts are completely unneccesary.. why? Becuase no one in the media is bothering to check, and if they do they sure aren’t printing that he is lying.. after all why should a little thing like lying stop the Liberal agenda.. We wouldn’t want to make the american Sheple from their slumber, tey might start asking questions… we can’t have that.. The end always justifies the means in the mind of the liberal. No questions allowed, unless your a supporter, and the answer will help to proagate the lies as fact… . I wonder, do you listen to or read anything other than the MSM news? Have you ever taken the time to actually check to see if the words that come out of the presidents mouth are true? We have a narcisistic presedent who loves to talk about all he has done, even though the evidence doesn’t support his claims, attacks and broad brushes everyone that disagrees with him as ignorant or stupid or a hater or racist, yet he claims he is not devicive.. Racial tentions are worse now than at any point I can remember because he and his adminstration are the first to play the race card.. He is also the first to defend the radical inslamists when they commited an act of WAR buy attacking US Embassy… Is was, afterall, justified for these poeple to murder US citizend because some ignorant american made a mean spirited film about Mohammed.. Oh my…! We just must not tolerate that.. So insead of going after the murderers, we go after the american who was exercising his right to free speach. Seriously? And you are OK with all this… right? So, if all this is OK with you, where do we go from here?

No-one can know just WHO will be the next President of the Most Powerful Country in the World today after that awesome day and may one be forgiven for hoping and praying it will not be he, the one born in Kenya {as opposed to being born in Hawaii as he maintains}.. and raised in Indonesia, namely Barak Hussein Obama.

    If it were scored like most debates in college and highschool debate clubs, I think Obama would have been the winner. His points were for the most part accurate and honest. Romney was just saying what his advisors had told him would sound good at the moment even though much of what he said contradicted his prior stands, logic, and the rules of mathematics. But, of course, that is not what matters for these sound bite style debates. To paraprase an old line from Captain Kirk of the old Star Trek, when will Obama learn that he’s not playing chess, he’s playing poker (and full contact poker at that).

    • kela

      you are spot on, how can Americans be swept off their footing so cheaply like this!!!. Obama inherited a “sinking America” at least in economic terms, being captained by a republican. keeping it afloat deserves a credit. Even an averagely intelligent person can see that

  • jessix

    It’s little wonder Obama feels this way. As an Affirmative Action student all he needed to do was to show up! He didn’t have the requirements other students had; The difficult ones were waived for Affirmative Action students.

    As for grading, Harvard stopped giving grades in order to “better accomodate Affirmative Action students”. Barry Soetoro was a class “pet” of sorts and fellow students helped him through any difficulties that remained.

    When one has depended on Affirmative Action for years to get through, one cannot take credit for “accomplishments” – they didn’t build anything on their own – Somebody else made that happen”!

    “Editor of the Harvard Law Review” was the affirmative action gift that fooled the intellectual Liberals. None would suspect such a sacriligious “gift” that indicated the smartest of the smart Harvard students was given to an Affirmative Action student just so Harvard could be written up by the NY Times as having named it’s “First Black Student Named Editor of the Harvard Law Review”.

    This is the type of publicity Harvard craves and they went to an extreme to get it This was the first and only time in over 100 years of Harvard history that such a student, (non-honors, no achievements) was given this position.

    We haven’t seen Harvard bragging about this president have we?

    I wonder why?

    • http://twitter.com/TedGlassKC Ted Glass

      You know very little about Affirmative Action and how it affects students educational requirements. Go read some more Ayn Rand.

  • Dejay

    As an outsider who happened to watch the debate, I thought Obama won too – he simple had the better answers. Romney couldn’t explain anything he wants to do and flip flopped again on his positions. Why do people get blinded by empty rhetorics? Arguments and facts should count, not waving around like an empty shirt in the wind.
    So how DO you debate with someone who is dishonest?

    • http://twitter.com/TedGlassKC Ted Glass

      Like Biden did i guess. Its not easy when the things they’ve said for months during the campaign and you’ve studied on in debate prep they now come out and completely walk away from. Slippery as a snake has new meaning.

    • http://www.facebook.com/scox12 Steve Cox

      Your an outsider? Talk about who is being dishonest.. Obama lost by a mile and beyond.

      • Dejay

        I would define dishonesty as saying one thing while meaning something else. Saying one thing and then suddenly saying something else is either dishonest or at the very least it’s stupid and inconsistent. People should be outraged by this behavior and not overly polite and soft debate performance.
        Sure I’m biased. As an European, my stake in this election is to see someone DIPLOMATIC to avoid an escalation of the middle east crisis. Force alone will not help against Russia’s and China’s oil interests in the region.

  • jessix

    I don’t see how Obama can prepare for a debate. He is unable to think on his feet and when speaking off the cuff he will make worse “gaffes” than Biden.

    Barack Obama has no basic knowledge of the workings of the presidency. He is not smart and this is immediately obvious to those who meet him in person. He has nothing to say because his head is nearly “empty”.

    Obama’s empty Harvard credentials were affirmative action gifts. Obama is not bad as an actor. He has carried this charade by himself for over 3 years.

    How can he “fake” his participation in a debate? He doesnt know how to do anything, but he is good at designating chores and taking credit for what others accomplish.
    I’m surprised that his supporters saw how ineffective he was immediately and almost immediately came out of their communal “spell” that must have been cast over all of them as a group.

    Few continue to make excuses for him after his performance in the first debate. This itself is amazing to me.

    • http://twitter.com/TedGlassKC Ted Glass

        it is just anti-Obama rhetoric. even if affirmative action got him in the door, it can not account for him making it to the top of his class. for someone to even bring that up, let’s me know what they really feel. i just hate when people don’t deal in facts, but childish criticism. i’m no political science or economics major, but i can check facts, and some of these people lead me to believe, they never have checked facts about either side. opinions you can argue with, not facts.

    I thought he won too, when I watched the debate, and, insofar he didn’t tell 38 lies in 47 minutes, or whatever the ratio for Romney was, he did win. His biggest criticism was from loud mouths like Chris Matthews and Ed Schultz after the debate (forget Fox; they wrote their views before the debate) – arguably “progressives” – who were most angry that he didn’t counter Romney’s lies. That’s what’d I’d call faint praise. Mark McGwire was the greatest slugger ever – till he copped to steroids. So why was Romney such a big winner?

  • SpeakOfTheTruth

    I feel like he is being extremely misrepresented. These may have been the actions he took, but certainly the words this writer uses are extreme, and exaggerate, misinterpret them. They are being twisted, because I know for certain he cares more than that. Don’t be fooled, really. Romney is a snake, and I’ll bet he only cares for a select few of Americans.

    The bottom line is … like MLK, Al Sharpton, and Jessie Jackson, Obama sees himself as a great “orator”, “preacher” … where “style over substance” in a one-way dialogue can work.

    Remember, too, he’s never had a real job … from a “burn the Constitution” college education under the tutelage of the “grand masters” of socialism, he jumped right in to teaching what he had just learned [with no experience added] to a flock of willing sheep. A few years later, he’s President … all because George W was an idiot and he gave a “glorious” speech four years earlier.

    And he gets elected because 95% of black voters voted for him. [That surely tells us who the real racists in this country are, no?]

This guy goes off into neo con fairyland about Obama thinking he can charm the middle east etc.. It’s total BS! Obama has done alot of good for this country. To paint him in one brush as some arrogant non reflective guy is soo baseless. Let’s reverse the debate. Romney reversed almost every position he previously stated in the debate. Romney’s 47% comment sure looks like Romney wrote off almost half the electorate as not him being concerned about. As Obama has said as President he represents all Americans. Not just the people who voted for him.

Ivan has ZERO credilbility in his posts other than the fact he hates the President. Move along nothing to see here except an Obama hater. I do agree Obama should have prepared for the debate better, But I have not seen any factual reporting stating Obama thought he won the debate or that his disdain is for Romney is on the scale Ivan says it is. In fact I have seen reports people physically at the debate said Obama’s head was down because he was writing notes. No doubt a mistake on his part but it wasn’t because he had soo much disdain for Romney he couldn’t look him in the eye. DO YOU PEOPLE ON HERE GET IT?. This guy Ivan hates Obama! FINE that is his right to hate Obama. But don’t let his hate cloud the facts as to why Obama lost the debate. Ivan is seeing what he wants to see in the President. I totally disagree with Ivana other than the fact I do agree Obama should have been better prepared for the debate.

    The truth is some sections of Americans are just interested in personality issues. To me it’s not about how best the candidates talk that matters. There are great distinction between speech and action. Americans should not depend their future on mere words of politicians. The truth is Americans really need help for a better future. The American problem was not created by Obama, the problem in my view started long ago but they didn’t realize it. The bush Administration really destroyed the American economy since the government per security issues over spent and was war oriented than focusing on the deficits. Likewise the banks just looking to their gain margins. America at this moment needs unity of action not just a section of politicians to use mere words to guarantee the safety of Americans. It’s not time for which party or personality to fix the problem. We shouldn’t look at parties, if then one can say the democrates will be better since Mr. Clinton fix the economy, gave it to Mr. Bush who destroyed it by going to fight an enemy that he has no direct plan to fight and rather destroyed innocent countries. I think the Obama administration is under a lot PREASURE causing the Americans not to look back and see the great jobs they are doing from inheriting an economy attacked by financial crisis whose real identity was revealed by Mr. Bush and the Wall Street etc, killing Osama who Mr. Bush used as a medium to cause collateral damage to innocent individuals and several countries who depend on the US currency etc for survival. Americans like any other country needs unity at this moment. God bless America

    • http://profiles.google.com/raichall Mojo the Awkward

      I agree that ad hominems debase the discourse; having said that, character is a valid consideration in electoral politics, and there is abundant empirical evidence that Obama’s character is self-aggrandizing, hubristic, overconfident, and dismissive of ideas that don’t chime with his own.
      Although a lot has been made of Romney’s own diffidence and lack of ‘chumminess,’ there’s little doubt that underneath the stiffness and formality, the Governor has a generous and compassionate heart. In the midst of a foaming attack-dog performance in the VP debate, Biden admitted that even he didn’t doubt Romney’s personal commitment to individuals. The willingness of the Obama-Biden ticket to attack Romney’s character by casting aspersions on his treatment of schoolmates, pets, and the cancer-struck wives of workers at plants his company once invested in (and look for a second objectively at how tenuous that last connection – which itself overstates the linkage beyond the point of mendacity, and constitutes the dirtiest, most inaccurate, cheap shot in the history of politics – really is, and ask yourself what that says about the desperation of Team Obama) represents a pragmatic calculation about their best electoral strategy. Romney’s own much-ballyhooed pivot to the center after appealing to his base during the primary represents a similar kind of calculation – but, I would submit, Romney has done what every Presidential candidate has done in the era of political parties, whereas Obama has plumbed new depths.
      Naturally, I’m writing this from the perspective of somebody who thought Obama exhibited dangerous signs of vainglory back in 2008; candidly, I’ll tell you that I’m not completely delighted with Romney, since I’m a libertarian and he really isn’t one. But I do think he cleaves closer to the mainstream than does Obama – that’s not so much a comment on his ideological positions as his willingness to make those considerations secondary to the paramount goal of achieving buy-in from stakeholders to a decision and translating that into productive outcomes.
      The President is, by his own admission, somebody who would rather implement a tax rate hike on the rich EVEN IF doing so reduced the amount and proportion of taxes paid by the rich. He made this claim, presumably, because he is THAT CERTAIN this would not result, despite the mass of historical data that shows the surprising and counterintuitive truth about marginal income tax rates and their relation to growth and revenues (the alternative, that he believes it is more important that the rich APPEAR to pay more taxes to low-information voters than that they actually DO pay, would make him either more stupid or more cynical than I’m prepared to believe on the balance of the available evidence).
      We can say that Romney, at a Republican primary, pledged that he wouldn’t raise $1 in taxes even in exchange for $10 in cuts – but that is something of an entirely different nature, reflecting a firm and consistent conviction from the Governor that raising marginal tax rates on individual income stifles growth and reduces overall revenues. Romney and Ryan, and myself for what that’s worth, believe that when Presidents implement marginal tax rate cuts and commit to supporting entrepreneurial innovation, as John F Kennedy did, as Reagan did, then the results are significant economic growth and expansion of the tax base with concomitant revenue increases. Heck, Bush in 2006 was taking in half a trillion more in tax revenues than Clinton ever did – and a larger proportion of those were paid by the infamous ‘millionaires and billionaires’ because his pro-growth tax policy created more of them to pay taxes. Bush didn’t get the full benefit of tax policy, partly because he dallied with demand-side cuts that have less growth impact, but mainly because of his deficit spending fetish. Obama, of course, has allied a continuation of these ills – to a heightened degree – with a demonization of business and a pile of red tape. Unsurprisingly, economic growth lags even the weak pace under Bush as a result.
      Obama’s campaign rests on convincing voters that nobody could do a better job. Even George W Bush did a better job. That’s why I’m voting for the alternative: Hope and Change.

      I’m truly saddened that you don’t have the judgment to tell the difference between the Democrats divisiveness, distraction, and outright lying, and the GOP’s simple statements of the truth of Obama and Democrat’s record. Judgment is a required survival mechanism when it’s based on facts and fairness. I’m a lifelong registered Independent, no party ax to grind, but it’s clear to me that Democrats are no longer interested in a strong, successful Republic.

  • NedReader

    Obama was told to hide his anger no matter what and because he was concentrating on that he delivered a limp, flaccid performance in the first debate.
    Biden was told to attack but to always smile while you attack because if you smile you won’t come accross as mean. So he concentrated on smiling and he delivered a disturbingly sneering, disrespectful performance.
    So my prediction is that Obama’s advisors will tell him to try to dominate in the next debate and without Obama’s normal anger controls in place he will give an angry rage filled performance which will be just as devastating to his campaign as his listless flaccid performance in the first debate.

    Its not that Obama has disdain for Romney, he is intimidated by him

  • http://www.facebook.com/jtopps1 Jeffery Topps

    During an interview with Brett Baier in 2010, Obama revealed that he didn’t like “the process” in D.C. By that he meant having to compromise, discuss and work with the opposition. He was very clear in that he would prefer to act unilaterally. Recall his childish, “I won!,” early on in his presidency. He has taken this to heart with his excessive Executive Orders. A second term will be more of the same and less of the way the government was created to operate.

    • wvobiwan

      That’s spot-on. Obama has become the most Imperialistic, tyrannical President we’ve ever had. The courts will be working for years after we send Barry home in Nov to undo all the illegal executive orders decreed by this would-be king.

  • lerose55

    I think the article says it all. Obama have been traveling, campaigning, being on daytime & nighttime talk shows laughing and clowning around, dinner parties with the stars, dinners at the White House w/ different sporting teams members. It must be nice on the American peoples money, and yet he finds it a bore to study for the debate, what is wrong with this picture. The White House was not meant to be party time. And then he has a bad attitude, his way or no way. He is bleeding our Countries finances. Medical Ins. thats mandatory and will not be very affortable-Socializing us and then fines to people who cannot afford it. What is he going to put people in jail? I am out of work for almost 2 years now, I cannot pay for the first time in my life. This past 4 years has to been the worse, yes it started w/Bush, but Obama has multipiled that several, times over. He claims unemployment is down, what about all the people that gave up finding job, what about the people who had full time jobs and could only replace it with a part time job, and with that no medical benefits. Plus the people who grabbed the Seasonal Jobs, and come January they will be out of work again. Unemployment numbers back over 8% again. Obama should bow out leave the Presdency, and that will save our Country from bankruptcy. We were not important enough for you to forgo your site seeing the day of your debate. He and the Mrs. might as well take some more vacations on the American people before they are out of the White House for good. You should all go on the site see what the Obamas are having built for his retirement house in Hawaii, after they leaves the White House. I hope we are not paying for it. It will be ready in 2014 or 2016 not sure. Its Beautiful

  • raptorep

    Obama is a failure from a purely political viewpoint, hard facts and numbers don’t lie, the average income of ALL Americans are down over $4K, the middle east is melting down, the economy never recovered and has been about flat since the crash and remember the unemployment numbers ONLY account for those on Unemployment Insurance Benefits NOT those who have given up or who are under employed, the number may go down but the reality is there is still too few jobs being created. Bush gave us a mess, but Obama has done very little to help either despite rhetoric and misleading employment numbers, the reality doesn’t match what is coming from the President’s mouth.

  • Greg Hiller

    I’m taken a back by this beautifully written article. Such excellent usage of the English language is a rarity.

    I agree to a large extent with the first part of what’s spoken about, and I think that this is a genuine feeling that President Obama holds: Maybe subconsciously; but probably he’s to an extent aware of it, and bases this way of thinking on his far superior education level, his knowledge, the actual facts themselves, and his prior life as an academic, him having been a university professor and lecturer.
    Add to this, that Obama will be much more aware than most of us, that loads of what the other guy says is nonsense, and just spoken out to please a certain audience. As indeed does often seem to be the case with the present Republican candidate.
    From after the point in this text about his aides worrying about his unwill to prepare himself; understandably in my opinion, I find that the substance of this article changes, and becomes unlikely to be reality. More probably extremely unlikely.
    Whatever one can try and criticise Obama for, during a term during which the World has erupted into the most terrible economic turmoil since the 1930’s, one thing stands out. He’s basically a very nice guy, and he’s doing things for the whole country in the best way he sees fit. – I don’t believe a word Romney speaks is true, I’m afraid to say.
    At heart I’d always vote Republican, never Democrat. – However, starting with George W., through McCain, and now again with Romney, I just couldn’t bring myself to vote for any of these candidates.
    I believe that if the GOP had chosen Ron Paul, they’d have won hands down, even if the doctor, medical specialist, anti-war and anti money-wasting candidate, didn’t appeal to all of the more extreme thinking, mainly religious, segments of the electorate. – Ron Paul was also simply much better than Obama.Any small loss of Tea Party type votes would have been overwhelmingly compensated by huge numbers of Democrats who would have supported Paul. It is such a pity that the great majority of Republicans were not able to grasp the intelligence and great ability of this guy.

  • sunnyelf

    Obama did win. Fifteen percent of Americans agree with him that he won. The majority is not always right… see however many examples in our history you care to count. Romney changed his story and was all bluster, pretending to move to center and to feel injured by Obama’s reference to his actual recent statements. It’s not uncommon for the loud kid to win an argument in this country, over the quieter kid who has more integrity.

      And then look at debate #3….. which was a perfect example of how Romney did that and Obama was “all bluster”. Romney, however, was more respectful than Obama was in his first debate, and Romney did not directly attack the president in the first debate. Looks like Obama didn’t care, and let Romney have it. >.> I think everyone who likes Obama has very weird priorities for our country, otherwise I don’t see how they think he’s a good president.

    I was so happy to see this article! As I grow older, I find I am not always as articulate as I once was; I don’t really know why, since I get just as angry at the sort of bullshyte that this president has heaped upon us for the past 3+ years.

    When I listened to Mr. Obama speak for the very first time, I realized that I could never vote for him for anything. Not because he is black; I didn’t even notice that at first, and when I did, I didn’t care. Still don’t. What I did notice, and what almost sent me to my knees (literally), was that the minute he started talking, I could see and hear the ghost of my late and rarely lamented mother. The best way I can describe her, and Mr. Obama as well, is that she was a complete and utter narcissistic bi-polar fright-fest. She apparently saw everyone around her in a shade of gray. She could not conceive of the possibility that anyone could be so boneheaded, and fundamentally evil that they could disagree with her in any way. No-one could have an opinion, wants and needs, or hopes and fears, if she did not allow it. But in that incredibly unlikely event, she was consoled by the fact that they were wrong because, of course, she was right.

    Mr. Obama is a perfect example of my mother. She was, and he is: snarky, sarcastic, dismissive, superior in attitude if not in fact, distainful of all others……well, you get the point. Unfortunately, all she could do is make everyone around her so miserable that they eventually “divorced her” and dragged themselves out of her orbit any way they could. Even more unfortunately, Mr. Obama literally holds all of out lives in his hands. All we can do is hope that enough thinking people will congregate at the voting boxes, and “divorce” Mr. Obama, send him back to his long suffering family and friends, and hope that the damage that he and his satelites have done is reversible at the least.

    However, all I can do is vote, and hope that everyone around me in this still great country will do the same, even if they don’t agree with me. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, find a way to get out and vote. I am in a wheelchair and a lot of pain, and if I can do it, then y’all all can too. May you blessed be, three times three.

    The commentary here is pretty one sided. However, WingedPegasus, Obama is far from a Marxist and Obama is far from a narcissist. Bush actually told reporters that he could not think of any mistakes he made in 4 years. bytebear, actually Bush had Osama in his sights at Tora Bora and let him go. He did not think it was important. Adkoc, sure he had the numbers but he had bluedog democrats and they did not vote with the Dems due to their more conservative or anti-Obama traits. They are all gone now. Remember? wrongsite.bad is accusing Obama of backing the Muslim Brotherhood … that is simply childish at best. That is a wish that can never be a fact.

    I bet that when he heard he lost, he was FURIOUS at AMERICANS for not adoring him no matter what, as he had dreamed. It came across in the other debates — he was angry at US, not just Romney. Not to mention he came across as totally out of touch with us the first time.

    I know how to read people, and he acted in the other debates exactly how I thought he would. The failure could not be in him — it must be in us, he felt, as I read him, but he felt he needed to woo us anyways, even though he doesn’t really like us. To use us to keep his power. So he hunkered down on those ten total days of very strange debate prep not because he cared about us, but quite the opposite. It was an excuse to get away from us for a while.

    I think most of us picked up on it, though maybe subconsciously.

  • psyclone

    It’s absolutely hilarious to see how obsessed the Obama-haters are. They glom onto this article’s paranoiac amateur psychology as if they were agreeing with Bill Frist’s video ridiculous diagnosis of Terry Schiavo’s condition from a video, and then piggyback onto the article with their own ridiculous suppositional examples of “human nature”. It’s so adorable that they still are pathetically stuck on a debate performance from nearly a month ago, since apparently that is all they have to hang their hats on. They certainly haven’t had anything else for the past year to get excited about with this disaster of a candidate. (Anyone remember the laughable GOP clown-car primaries? Or was the trauma too awful?) Forget Romney’s pathological and brazenly opportunistic lying – no, that doesn’t merit a mention with this set. And forget how Obama cleaned Romney’s clock in the 2 subsequent debates, especially with that fantastic “bayonets and horses” rejoinder that caught Romney totally flatfooted. No, these things don’t matter to people who themselves don’t give a rat’s ass about Romney – to them he’s just the only available non-Obama, and an ever-diminishing one at that.

    I’m sure their heads would explode if they found out who signed into law a virtually identical health-care bill for Massachusetts! Ha!

    • Matt A.

      The whole “Bayonets and horses” quip in regard to the size of the navy was extremely disrespectful of our armed forces. Romney clearly stated that top officials in the US Navy needed more assets to be able to adequately defend America and its interests. Obama said “suck it up and deal with it” in as many words, because “we have better stuff”. Yes we do, but we also have more to deal with. I don’t want someone who thinks he knows better than career professionals in our armed forces making decisions for them. I doubt he knows about the logistics of adequately running our armed forces, and he apparently doesn’t listen to those that do.

      • psyclone

        Har! No, Romney was just trying to pull a fast one on the debate audience by playing with numbers and completely mischaracterizing the state of readiness of our armed forces. Only a complete partisan hack would assume that Obama of all people doesn’t understand the capabilities of the US Navy….seriously, based on what? Our battle fleet, as small as Romney seems to think it is, is still larger than the next 13 countries’ battle fleets *combined*. And 11 of those are our allies. So please, spare me Romney’s phony and contrived concern that’s only there to dupe people into thinking that Obama is trying to weaken the country out of malice.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Apparently none of these folks, neither the terribly inept detractors with their fox news style accusations, since no one and I mean no one has been able to find one smidgen of evidence of Obama’s wrongdoing, or the right minded supporters of one of the most important figures in the history of the United States of America, was able to see through this great president’s strategy, which he rightfully kept to himself and will continue to do so. Of course he did not prepare, as he was told to. He played a card very few are willing or prepared enough to play. He played dumb, with the perfect and coherent skill that only a master politician and statesman is able to pull off. He let Mittens win the first one so that his adversary would use that fact to inflate his already overly swollen plastic head. Of course Mittens did exactly that and nearly blew the whole ball game. But his wealthy supporters who would put us back to the middle ages in the name of inhuman laws that respect only the Bubba mentality and the bottom line in their current accounts over the short term got to work to save him from his own idiocy – clearly demonstrated in his choosing such an inept running mate.

    It is very clear that Obama, whether he wins this election or not is a winner and has changed the presidency of the United States of America back from an office held by the likes of W and his great Big Daddy, etc. to the respectable leader of the free world and coherent guide of the most important nation on the face of this earth at present. No one with their bigoted attitudes can take that away from him. You can be sure that if Romney wins, that great office will suffer its worse nightmares again as occurred with W in his first two years with Bin Laden’s attack on the little whiner he had known for so many years, because the little creep deserved it. The innocents killed were of no more import to W than they were to Bin Laden, evidenced by his hiding in an elementary school under his brother’s governorship in Florida during the peak of the crisis, reading a children’s book upside down. Not since Leonardo Da Vinci has someone been so intelligent and capable in his reading and writing skills.

    It’s however not the fault of the supporters of these terrible pretenders as they do not know any better. They listen to bigoted and easily palatable racist views that seem to reflect what they heard from daddy or someone else who taught them that they were supposedly superior. Actually, anyone who does not see that those who are free and wealthy have a duty to protect and instruct those who aren’t so lucky because we are not many races but one humanity – one life that must work for the improvement of all people and all life on this precious planet we inhabit are blind to anything beyond their own noses. Those who only work toward their individual material wealth with no regard for the damage and destruction they have wrought by their daily decisions to support unworthy men and narrow-minded causes, will in the end pay the ultimate price basically because they can never truly be happy or find satisfaction in their lives. Unlike people such as President Obama, who not only truly work for the improvement of all the United States but also for the betterment of the entire world. He is a happy man and needs no other reward that what his actions and development bring him.

  • MAwrestler

    Psycho-pathological reading of Obama from a conservative propagandist. What would you expect? The article’s tone drips with contempt and hatred of the President. The only thing worse are the commenters who see it as insightful, even though the portrait of Obama hardly resembles the man the American public knows.

    During the Watergate investigations, President Nixon was forced to resign or be impeached for the attempted cover-up of breaking into a hotel room to uncover the Democrats election strategy. This was sold as a constitution crisis by the left.

    Now President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, and a host of the lefts most shrill talking heads, willfully try to cover up their mendacious storyline
    blaming the deaths of four Americans, on a obscure video. They refused
    ambassador Christopher Stevens numerous requests to increase security in
    Benghazi, on the anniversary of 911. An Ambassador killed, and three other fine Americans dead who by all accounts refused orders to stand down, and tried to save the ambassadors life.

    The disastrous foreign policy of this administration, and the deaths of these four Americans, should bring immediate calls for impeachment and several high level resignations.

    Why don’t those who just don’t like Obama just admit it upfront instead of thinking of a million reasons that really don’t make sense. Just admit that you personally just don’t like him and that’s fine. That’s honest. Please just stop trying to make your emotions seem rational. A rational person begins with credible evidence first and makes decisions methodically. In the process there are no emotional outbursts belittling anyone.

As any Brit will tell you, The Daily Mail is a festering mess of prejudices, lies and half-truths that no-one with half a brain takes seriously.

    Typos in the first paragraph, broad generalizations, and wild inaccuracies. This article is ridiculous. If you’d ever participated in public debate, you’d know that when you’re performing, often times you don’t see things in the same light as people watching and it takes hearing it from other people afterward to fully understand the impression you left with your audience.
    And what a stupid concept for an article. If you take issue with Obama’s presidency, let’s hear about concrete policies you disagree with, rather than wishy-washy nonsense about how Obama thought he did after a debate.

  • http://twitter.com/A3Sun Aditya Aggarwal

    I am democrat – I will tell you I was let down by Obama in the first debate. I was surprised by the lies told by Romney in that debate with such as straight face that it felt so real – even when I knew if was all not possible – Reduced deficit by tax cuts – How many times we have tried? – Under Reagan, Bushes. Every time it has created more deficits. Out of $16T deficit $10.4T are created due to that policies. and even out of $5.4T deficit under Obama majority of – 80- 65% was due to unpaid – unnecessary wars started by Bush, tax cuts and the great recession which was started by Republican -GOP policies which Romney wanted to repeat again.

    I was surprised about – his Iran stance – It was too Hawkish – to push ourselves in war – just like Bush did with Iraq.

    He had no problem spending addition $2T on defense when people have no jobs and would not like to spent on health care.

    I think we would have won House if Obama had good performance in first debate. Not only that – Obama – had the right policy and right strategy for the country but he was not able to communicate it – just like Bill Clinton was able to do it.

    e.g. Talk about 5 point plan
    1. Tax rate cut but tax revenue to be the same there by creating millions of jobs – by cutting loop holes – Man! are we stupid there are no such big loop holes to pay for the such as huge tax cuts. Majority of economist told it. But even after agreeing to find such as large loop holes – this means the effective tax rate remains the same – So how millions of jobs will be created!!!!

    2. Drill baby Drill is the future for Energy self-sufficiency – Man! oil is a limited quantity. We are going to run out of it if not today in 20 to 50 years. It takes 20-30 years to put new infrastructure for alternate energy. So we have to do more on alternate energy and it is the only viable strategy on long run. Actually, I would save the oil as much as possible in US for rainy day.

    3. We will increase $2T in defense where let citizens have no money for health insurance or spend nothing on education or spend on research or reduce deficit.

    4. Kill Obamacare – Now healthcare was in private hands till last year. US pays the highest per person in healthcare compared to developed countries and average health parameters are in some of the worst. So how is that !!!

  • propagandabuster…

    Republicans: Stop whining and get to work on the real problems that face us.

But his loss will then be all our loss, unless, of course , you are very wealthy.

  • Bob4Hope

    Nonsense. Obama did win that debate. He performed the facts flawlessly. He lost the ‘acting audition’ … Foolishly, he thought the facts actually matter to the future of the nation … The fact that Romney lied his a$$ off, yet was perceived to be the winner in the media … is an obscenity … and disgrace to our nation. Thank goodness the elections was not so rigged as to stop his election.

    Shame … I never knew Americans were so racist. But I guess I would be falling into the ignorance pit where most of the commentators are swimming. Obama was voted into office by Americans of all colour and creed so I will avoid generalising (NOT ALL AMERICANS ARE RACIST). It would appear Martin Luther King’s Dream is still a pipe dream. The red states … are they accommodating of people of colour? I have never heard or read such acidic rhetoric after Democrats lost to Republican presidents who never benefited America. I believe the world is following American politics with interest. All I can say is that the world is learning to look elsewhere for lessons on democracy, human rights etc. What is going to happen when a latino campaigns for the white house? Or let alone a native American? Noone complained when the scandinavian Arnold “Schwarzinigger” was elected governor when he cant even speak English with an Amerian accent!!

    This is great, this whole thread show you just why America is in the massive hole it is in. Morons like Katie who whinge and complain and refuse to try to make things go forward, instead content to argue and fight every point her opposition bring forward. That’s basically the crux of the American way, your whole political system is set up to ensure nothing gets done. Obama has a good set of morals and the right ideas to take your country forward yet he will be fought every step of the way by you people and in 4 years time you will be in the same position you are in now only the hole will be a whole lot deeper. Whether you love or hate him, he has been put in charge and you people should be doing everything possible to help the country move forward, because the alternative right now, if you be honest with yourselves is very dire….. you guys are dead broke and in an impossible amount of debt. You have enemies all over the world and you owe China the largest portion of your debt….. better start working together or you guys will be sunk and it wont be long either.

  • MattT

    I’ve never seen hate for anyone democrat more than Obama. Why is this?

    I think it’s because he is not white and has an odd name. He is a citizen of the US and is a Christian (however important that is).

    He isn’t a terrorist that supports Al-Queda. He isn’t planning to take over America as a dictator or else he’d have already done it. He didn’t get the nobel peace prize because he DEMANDED it, he was given it by someone else. You wouldn’t condemn someone for being given a car by someone else would you?

    At the end of the day there are two sides to politics. There are the people vs the governing body. It is the governing bodies job to make sure the people are regulated and a country is kept intact. It is the peoples job to keep society running and make the government isn’t too powerful. Party lines are just plain dumb.

    To all Republicans that state that Obama should have ‘fixed’ the economy, that would require interference from the government on a FREE MARKET ECONOMY, which Republicans are COMPLETELY against.

    If you are going to hate Obama, at least just say it straight up and admit it’s because he has a foreign sounding name and is of colour. Say what you really mean.

A friend of mine went for his 5 year colonoscopy screening. He had polyps removed, so every 5 years for him. Or so he (we) thought.

    It sure looks to me like he won. Maybe the article should be titled:

    Just because Romney was thinking that he won, whereas Obama was content with how it went, doesn’t mean that Romney actually must have won. The goal is who the people had more confidence in. After all, it is the job where the guy could make everyone else drop their ambitions to go fight in someone else’s war.

    This article doesn’t have a clue. It seems like the author is simply anti-Obama, and therefore is attempting to pick things out of the air to go along with this view. A lack of preparation, if we accept this to be true, does not translate to abhorring democracy. That’s quite a wild leap there. Also, it never occurs to him that he might be wrong? Have you read his autobiography? Have you seen anything from Obama that you haven’t watched with a distrustful, biased eye and therefore drawn conclusions because of that? Obama may not be the greatest President of all time, and he may be struggling with some things, but to say that he abhors democracy is histrionic in the extreme.

    This whole, misinformed tirade is nothing but an ignorant ad homimem attack. Obama didn’t make enough of an impression during the debate so he’s a narcissist….! Yeah, that’s it!!!!

    You know what? I saw the last half of the first debate, and I thought he won, too. He didn’t seem to emotionally charged up, but, he called the BS and refuted it. It didn’t have the pro-wrestling pitch of the second debate, but I’m glad for that. It’s a shame when attention is diverted away from the substance of a candidate’s message and onto the delivery of the message.

    Word of advice: stop with the arm-chair psychoanalysis of what you THINK is going on in a candidates mind and keep with the issues. It’s always preposterously obscene when right-wingers last a Democrat politician for lack of commitment to democratic ideals. You’ll have more luck sermonizing about big government and smothering taxes than convincing us that Karl Rove and Dick Cheney are models of transparency.
