(At Least They Aren’t Blaming Bush!): Obama Team Blames Romney, John Kerry, The Moderator AND The Altitude For Obama’s Disastrous Debate Fiasco

October 8, 2012

Rest assurred, if the Obama campaign could have figured out a way to demonize George W. Bush to explain Obama’s failure in his first debate, they would have done so.  After all, that’s pretty much how they’ve explained ALL THE OTHER Obama failures up to now.

Team Obama Blames John Kerry for Debate Loss

The Obama campaign has been reeling since losing the first Presidential debate of this election cycle in front of 67 million viewers.  They’ve tried–and thus far failed–to craft a narrative to explain away the debacle in Denver.  Previously, we reported to you that Obama Senior Advisor David Plouffe, who ran the President’s successful 2008 campaign, (falsely) accused Mitt Romney of lying.  In a rare comedic moment from the typically robotic former Vice President Al Gore, he suggested on Current TV that the Mile High City’s altitude was the reason Obama was low on energy and enthusiasm.  And, of course, Obama’s chronically dishonest deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter and several others passed the buck to the moderator, Jim Lehrer. None of the above caught on, even with the mainstream pro-Obama media.

Now the Obama Administration is floating their latest excuse: that the campaign, particularly John Kerry (who played the role of Romney in simulated debates), did not channel Mitt’s aggression enough.

From CBS’s “This Morning”:

Norah O’Donnell: “Some Democrats say [Obama’s] campaign needs a wake-up call.  Bill Plante is here with that part of the story.  Bill, you’ve been talking to your sources; what are they saying?

Correspondent Bill Plante: “Well Norah, they’re simply upset and really outraged.  They blame the President’s team, first of all, for not preparing him to meet the challenge of an aggressive Mitt Romney.  They say that nobody in the room challenged him, including the guy that he was debating with, John Kerry, because, as they say, he wants to be Secretary of State so he’s not going to get in the President’s face. And Presidents are used to deference; they’re not used to people challenging them like that.  So they think that the debate prep was terrible, but they also fault the President himself for not understanding that Romney was going to be more aggressive.”

The 2012 Obama campaign continues to be a stark contrast from their 2008 effort.  In 2008, then Senator Obama used youthful ebullience, soaring rhetoric, and a precise campaign infrastructure to capture the hearts and minds of the American people.  In 2012, the President seems increasingly lethargic and quick to make excuses for missteps on the campaign trail.

What once was “Hope and Change” is now “Mope and Blame,” and this time it’s John Kerry under the President’s bus.

Along with the liberal New Yorker and of course Clint Eastwood, I blame the chair:

Actually, we ought to lay the blame for a president who was clearly incompetent on the backs of the American people, who were so dispicably foolish in 2008 it was unreal.  But as stupid and as depraved as it is to believe the Emperor had clothes on in 2008, anybody who still thinks the naked turd stinking up the presidency is anything but an empty suit when we desperately need a leader is simply in the category of “demon-possessed.”

List Of How Our Country Went To Hell While Obama On Vacation #6 Almost As Long As It Is Scary

August 27, 2010

If there was ever a “Let them eat cake” administration, this one’s it.

I like the hilariously cynical “Newsflash” part of this ABC News title.  It brings out the massively disconnected look of contempt for the “forgotten man” in Obama’s eyes.

“Wave at all the little nobodies, daughters, wave at all the little nobodies.  Emperor worship is all they have left to live for.”

Breaking News: President Obama Says “I’m Having a Great Time” On Vacation
August 25, 2010 12:42 PM

Last night President Obama and First Lady Obama dined at State Road Restaurant in West Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard.

Their dinner companions were family friends Dr. Eric and Cheryl Whitaker, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, and lawyer and business executive Vernon Jordan and wife Ann Dibble Jordan.

As they departed the restaurant at 9:55 pm ET, reporters asked the president if he was enjoying his vacation even with the rain.

“I’m having a great time,” the president said. “Doing a lot of reading”

[Snip]

Kenworth said she’d been asked not to talk about what the Obamas ordered, but “the whole table got lobster tempura with island corn succotash and lemon vinaigrette” in addition to their individual entrees.

You wouldn’t have asked for about 310 million doggy bags for those lobster tempura leftovers, would you, Barry?

Meanwhile, back in the real world, the American people are watching their economy go directly to hell.  As in, “Go to hell.  Go directly to hell.  Do not pass ‘Recovery Summer,’ do not collect $200.”

Obama’s having a grand old time because he doesn’t give a flying fart about the following facts that have gripped the country while he was gripping a golf club:

The mainstream media’s adjective of the day to summarize all of the above is “unexpected,” of course.

And my favorite headline while Obama was on vacation #6 (not hard give the competition) comes from Überlefty David Letterman:

Okay, scratch that: THIS is my favorite headline:

All of these things were reported as occurring during one of Obama’s four golf outings on his sixth vacation so far just this year.

And the bad news is that I am very likely missing some real important seriously bad news that’s happened during Obama’s little holiday from responsibility (but after all, it IS “Bush’s fault,” right?  And why should Obama do anything to take responsibility when he can just continue to demonize Bush?).

But, I mean Obama’s having a good time, right?  Just imagine how much the worse our our sucky little lives would have been if Obama’s vacation lacked some luxury that turned his smile into a frown…

Michelle Obama, the Bride of Messiah, decried America as a “downright mean” place in 2008, that was “guided by fear.” Maybe so.  But thanks to your husband, Michelle, it’s gotten a whole hell of a lot meaner and a whole hell of a lot more fearful in the two years since in which Obama has led us down the path to ruin.

May Obama, having the rest and clarity of yet another vacation, decide to resign from office before it’s too late to save what is left of the nation.

You probably won’t listen to my version of “In the name of God, GO!”  But it would sure be better for America – and even for your own party – if you did.

On the bright side, for you, Barry:

There’s a place for “the hungry, the naked, the homeless, the crippled, the blind, the lepers, all those people who feel unwanted, unloved, uncared for throughout society, people that have become a burden to the society and are shunned by everyone.”

Mother Teresa started it, and it’s still running strong. Although you don’t deserve it, Barry, there will be a place for you to go after you’ve imploded the entire American and global economies.
