Maybe he’s not that smart…

Media manufactured Obama. Media told everyone how brilliant he is, how professorial, how lucky we were to have him as -resident. Obama reveled in the hype and  believed it all. Last nights debate put an end to all that. Maybe someone should define for him what a debate entails. All the excuses coming  from the media and leftist pundits won’t change how badly it went. Saying he was “rusty” and “unprepared”? He’s the President of the United States, he’s supposed to be prepared. That’s part of the job description.

Yes, it was as bad as it seemed.

No, it wasn’t Jim Lehrer’s fault for letting Romney expound; Obama got more time (four minutes more) than Romney. Besides, it’s not the moderator’s job to call a debater out on questionable assertions. It’s the opponent’s job.

Yes, it wasn’t the best atmospherics for Obama to look down, purse his lips, appear distracted, while Romney was attentive, engaged, relaxed. But this was much more than atmospherics. This was about one candidate who came with a frame for the evening, and who was prepared to engage on every question; and another who, perhaps because of his documented faith in his own abilities, felt he could wing it with snatches of familiar verbiage.

Today Obama is back out on the stump, saying the same stupid things he said last night. From Big Government:

Today, President Obama, smarting over his shellacking last night by Mitt Romney in the first presidential debate, took to the stump in Denver. It was a far more comfortable setting – one with no opponent, no moderator, no clock, and no accountability. Plus a teleprompter.

Obama’s biggest fear is the people will see the real Mitt Romney, not some soundbites from the campaign, and like what they see. Obama showed his true face in the debate, one of disdain for the American people he is supposed to lead. Romney showed true leadership and skill. It seems to come down to a choice between a successful, smart, principled businessman who understands how the economy works or a guy who wants to take your “stuff” and give it away for votes and, who blames every mistake he’s made on someone else. Do we really want more of the same for four more years?  Obamanomics Decimated the American Middle Class, Working Poor

Since 2009, the middle 20% of American households saw their average incomes drop 4%. In 2011 alone, they fell 1.7%. The poorest 20% have fared even worse under Obama, Census data show. Their incomes have dropped more than 7% since 2009, and are now lower than they’ve been at any time since 1985, after adjusting for inflation.

Meanwhile, the wealthiest have managed to eke out gains in two of the past three years. In 2011, the top 20% saw their average income climb almost 2%, the Census data show.

These results are in direct contrast of what President Obama said his policies would produce when he ran for president in 2008.

What the Media, and Obama, doesn’t understand is, you can’t defend the indefensible and you can’t hide from the truth.

  1. Europe reacts to the debate…
    “That is something Obama has sought to exploit in the past. In the run-up to a G8 meeting at Camp David in May, White House officials firmly pressed their European counterparts to rally behind Obama’s policy initiatives, according to those involved.

    “It was like all of the G8 apart from Russia and Japan were expected to be part of the Obama re-election campaign,” the chief of staff of one European leader told Reuters at the time.

    Washington has also applied quiet pressure on Europe in recent months about the need to avoid a major blow-up in the debt crisis ahead of the election, in part so as not to rattle the U.S. economy, several EU officials have told Reuters”.

      Europe, you can take zero barry, The First Gay President. The USA does not want the buh-rock hussein obama. Take him and keep him, along with Moochelle . They spend more than the entire Royal Family.

  4. Obama praised the Cleveland Clinic…but, the Clinic doesn’t think so highly of him

    “Cleveland Clinic chief executive Toby Cosgrove, leader of the hospital that President Barack Obama praised in the Denver debate for doing “smart things,” criticized Obamacare’s stifling effect on innovation, the Republican National Committee reported.

    Obama’s been fawned over and put on a pedestal since birth. He thinks he can do no wrong; and the people in his past bolstered that impression. He always blames someone else for his shortcomings. Last night, Baby Barry finally got scolded and made to stand in the corner. Must be a rude awakening for Golden Boy.

    • “I WON”…..”I’m the President”… Never going to forget the arrogance in those words…Oh, how the mighty have fallen… 😀

      • I was only three when Reagan was elected, so could someone who remembers answer a question? Did Carter hit the ground with this loud of a thud?

        I told you he has a natal astrological aspect that guarantees a quick rise followed by a fall from the top. I pray that means this election.

          Look at this quote from Rush:

          RUSH LIMBAUGH: Obama Had ‘One Of The Greatest Falls From Great Heights I’ve Ever Seen’ At The Debate

          This is EXACTLY what I was saying the astrology shows. Gave me shivers. The transit that I felt would set this natal promise in motion started the day of the debate and will conti ue thru the election.

    How anyone can think that Obama is smarter than Gov. Romney is beyond me. Gov. Romney received both an MBA and a law degree from Harvard simultaneously. I can’t imagine how hard that must have been. All Obama did was get a law degree. I would put Gov. Romney’s “smarts” against Obama’s any day of the week.

    • Francine

      I saw a comment somewhere, MOTUS? Maybe, anyway, it was about some people thinking the debate would be Harvard Business School vs Harvard Law School and it turned out to be Harvard Business School vs Community (organizer) College, lol.

      • Funnnnneeeee! 😀

    This is pretty big . . . According to Megan Kelly, Joe Trippi tweeted that voter registration for the GOP has DOUBLED starting 20 minutes into the debate and that rate has not subsided. WooHOO!!!

      I should say “online registration”.

    • and the early voting in OH where Romney has closed the gap in a number of counties…even {gasp} Cuyahoga County (die hard D territory.

    • Obviously Hilda Solis wants to keep her job…lying should help/s

      • Francine

        “Suspicion about the federal government’s September jobs report has fallen on Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, who appeared on CNBC this morning and defended the numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), claiming — falsely — that upward revisions of 86,000 jobs were from the private sector. In fact, the new number is entirely accounted for by upwards revisions to state and federal government payrolls. The BLS reported that while only 114,000 jobs were created in September — which would have translated into a rise in unemployment from 8.1% to 8.2% — the unemployment rate fell dramatically to 7.8%. That unusual drop is the fastest in nearly three decades, and was unexpected even in the rosiest predictions. One reason for the rise was an upward revision of 86,000 to the July and August jobs numbers — all of which came from a 91,000 increase in the estimate of public sector jobs. Private sector job estimates were actually revised downward by 5,000. In addition, the BLS reported a large rise in the number of part-time jobs, adding 600,000 jobs to the total — a dramatic increase of 7.5%, not explained by any other economic indicators — and raising questions about whether the government had changed the way it counted part-time workers. … [S]olis describes the 86,000 upward revision as if it were an increase in private sector jobs, though in fact the increase came entirely from revisions to public sector payrolls by cash-strapped federal and state governments. Instead of shedding jobs, as previously claimed, governments have been adding jobs.” –Breitbart’s Joel B. Pollak

        • I work in the financial sector. It is our job to examine all the information, comb through the reports, crunch the numbers and advise people on what will happen next. We took a good hard look at the last jobs report and today’s. There is no honest way the # is 7.8%.

        Hilda’s doing what libs do best–lying and twisting the facts to suit their cause.

  15. Revolt of the ‘Spooks’….

    […]President Barack Obama’s administration faces mounting opposition from within the ranks of U.S. intelligence agencies over what career officers say is a “cover up” of intelligence information about terrorism in North Africa.

    Intelligence held back from senior officials and the public includes numerous classified reports revealing clear Iranian support for jihadists throughout the tumultuous North Africa and Middle East region, as well as notably widespread al Qaeda penetration into Egypt and Libya in the months before the deadly Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.[…]
