The Lehrer debate on Wednesday, October 3, was an utter disaster for Obama. He seemed to be saying, "I HATE this job. Get me out of here so I can play golf and hang with my peeps." It was the worst performance by an incumbent President in my experience...maybe the worst performance by ANY candidate, including the awful job Walter Mondale did in '84. Romney is no Ronald Reagan, but he appeared "presidential" and in full control of the facts. Obama, on the other hand, told obvious lies over an over and Romney even called him on them a time or two--which has been uncharacteristic so far in this campaign.
Maybe the worst lie, Obama told is how he's always "fought for the middle class" and "will continue to do so." Obama's "handlers" understand that the only way to bring down this country is to force as many in the middle class into poverty and that you don't do that by ATTACKING the middle class. You do it by attacking the SOURCES of middle class incomes....the wealthy, corporations and small businesses who do most of the hiring. The REAL unemployment rate in this country is in the neighborhood of 20%, or more. That includes those who're CAPABLE of working, but are not. In large measure, these are people who have just gotten discouraged by the lack of opportunity in this country and dropped out to live on their spouse's or parent's income or on some sort of government assistance. They aren't COUNTED in the government's unemployment figures. Lots of these people WILL return to work as soon as the economy recovers, which it simply WON'T do as long as Democrats are in control of it.
All in all, it was an epic FAIL for Obama...just like his "presidency" has been.
He probably has advisers telling him there is a 68% probability of a major world economic collapse in the next four years, and he does not want to be in charge when that happens.
You know I just started thinking the same thing. Maybe Obama wants to get out knowing what a stink bomb he’s planted after the election.
