(Associated Posers) WASHINGTON DC President Obama's supporters have blamed everything from the altitude in Denver to Jim Lehrer for his dismal performance at the first presidential debate against challenger Mitt Romney. For many Americans it was the first chance to see an unscripted Barack Obama and Mitt Romney without the media spin.
For his part Barack Obama declared he hadn't debated Mitt Romney at all That wasn't the real Mitt Romney!. Later his campaign released a statement saying that a Mitt Romney clone had been used, the evidence they said was self evident.
The supporters of President Obama have also blamed John Kerry, his debate coach for the bruising their guy took. Romney cheated some of them said pointing to possible poisonous fumes form Mitt Romney's handkerchief. Meanwhile Obama spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter appeared on CNN and finally admitted that their main accusation in the first debate that Romney wanted a $5 trillion tax cut had been completely made up.
Yes, we lied. So what? Can we move to the next topic please?
Meanwhile David Axelrod begged the media to do a better job of protecting the President and attacking Mitt Romney saying We can't do this alone, there is no way we can win this Mano-a-mano. We need the media to help us out.
Obama Senior Advisor David Plouffe says that John Kerry was just not up to keeping a lazy student interested in debate prep. He couldn't keep his pupil in the seat. Turn his back and Barack Obama was visiting a hydro-electric dam somewhere. We thought being an older, white rich guy him and Mitt Romney would have a lot in common. We didn't take into account that John married money, twice, and Mitt earned his through capitalistic thievery
James Carville pointed out several times on television The President brought spitwads to a chainsaw fight. Clint Eastwood called him an empty chair and for some reason he set out to become one.
Meanwhile top Democrat strategists agreed that the second debate must be about Mitt Romney and not the last four years. The economy is in the crapper, we have the blow up in the middle east being called a bump in the road, we have Joe Biden and we have almost nothing positive to show for these last four years. It behooves our team and the media to make Mitt Romney the focus
When asked if the Presidents' debate performance could be blamed on the President himself David Plouffe was adamant Absolutely not. He has little to do with anything. Nobody expects Barack to lower himself like that, so we can't be disappointed if he doesn't.
David Axelrod agreed President Obama can't be blamed for anything. He is perfection personified and it was racist for you to ask such a question. Holding people responsible for their own actions is the old way of doing things, we are more enlightened now. No one on our side is ever going to blame Obama for anything he does. 65 million people saw that mess, now the media must convince people it never happened.
New polls now give Mitt Romney a small advantage, a slight lead since the debate.

Satire? Are you sure about that??? hahahaha
Thanks for taking the time, GeronL. It helps keep all the depressing stuff from clogging up the giggle pipes. Ain’t nuttin’ worse than clogged giggle pipes.
I just made it more true with the made up quotes
Anyone who has glommed onto the Agitator-in-Chief seems to be coming down with a case of humongous-stinkitis. Tomato sauce won’t disguise it. And not even an old stink-eye will repel it. The only known cure is to cut it off before it stinks to high heaven or else it will continue to stink up everything it contacts.
Their libs, they might cut off the wrong parts.
I say the Man Upstairs gets first dibs.
You know what? We live in the age of unaccountability. That’s right, nobody from your elected dog catcher all the way to the POTUS is being held accountable. Oh sure, there is a piece of meat thrown to the dogs occasionally and a county supervisor is slapped on the bottom, which if he happens to be gay or a chick into the S&M he or she much enjoys, or the Congress Ethics Committee will hold hearings that result in a goose egg, but my statement above stands. Generally speaking, there is no accountability in our political and judicial system. Obumster, the Kenyan Usurper made some very specific promises in 2008 and later. Who among his voters and the media is holding his feet to the fireplace?
Let’s go home. There have been multiple threads here making bold, confident predictions about the election, and Obamugabe’s wipe out. A landslide for our guy, who hasn’t really been our guy, but let’s forget about that for a minute. Will the authors of these predictions be ever held accountable? I recall that similar optimistic predictions were made here in 2008. (And incidentally, if you dare to express some skepticism about these rosy predictions be prepared to be branded an Obummer supporter and invited to return to DU!)
There really is a difference this time.
First of all, a strong majority of Americans (in my opinion) are scared witless about what a second Obama term will do to their lives and the country at large.
We didn't perceive that we were up against such an extreme threat of certain disaster in 2008.
Romney just did something to Obama that McCain couldn't dream of doing. He took him to the woodshed and bruised his behind so bad that he'll be hurting for years (if not decades) to come.
Romney also exhibited something on Wednesday night that McCain could never achieve; real honesty, commitment to our fundamental American principles, courage, grit, and clear-eyed determination to do whatever it takes to turn this country around.
If a solid Romney skeptic like me can see that, then surely most other conservatives can.
Gibbs just said Obama was debating a clone of Mitt Romney.
dang, I was right.
America got to see the real Romney and the real Obama for the time. You can see how upset the MSM and libs were about this. They might not let it happen again.
Too true, but how can they stop Obama from being Obama? These are the sorts of moments when they're helpless to protect him from himself.
It's going to be a joy watching him roundhouse kick himself in the head again.
