Procrastinator in chief avoids debate prep, visits Hoover Dam instead
Twitchy ^ | October 2, 2012

Pres Obama takes another break from debate prep to visit the Hoover Dam.

2 Oct 12 Reply Retweet Favorite

President Obama, trembling under the weight of those pesky “constraints of governing,” hasn’t exactly expressed much interest in prepping for tomorrow night’s presidential debate. In fact, just yesterday, he was whining about having to stay inside to do his debate homework. A drag, indeed. Evidently, the all work and no play got to be too much for the dull boy, and he took a field trip to the Hoover Dam.

"Its spectacular and I've never seen it before," Pres Obama tells reporters about his visit to the Hoover Dam.

Pres Obama said an aide told him they were only 15 minutes away from Hoover Dam "and I said well we've got to go check it out."

Pres Obama was surprised to learn that most of the power generated at Hoover Dam goes to southern California & not to Las Vegas.

Obama's questions on 1st visit to Hoover Dam: Where does the power go? How long did it take to build? How many people were killed building?

During his visit, President Obama made it pretty clear that he did not want to discuss the debate:

But when reporters started asking about his debate preps, Pres Obama ended the chat and turned away.

Some people also remarked on the similarity between today’s photo op and an MSNBC ad featuring Rachel Maddow at Hoover Dam:

Obama went to the Hoover dam to remind people of the @maddow Hoover Dam ad's message earlier. Maybe?

It definitely does look familiar …

(VIDEO AT LINK)

Given the president’s reluctance to even acknowledge tomorrow’s debate, it’s entirely possible that he’d rather be leaning forward than brushing up on his debating skills.

Watch him bring up the Hoover dam tomorrow. He's debate prepping, ya know? He'll take credit for building it before he was born, and then say we need stimulus money for more infrastructure like the Hoover Dam. Then he'll want it named the Obama Dam, but I'll just be thinking Damn Obama!

It likely will. Even if he’s a master crammer, he still needs the time to mentally organize the information so he can make use of it, as no debate is ever really predictable.

I half-think he wants to walk away so he can enjoy his pension and the rest of his life. His behavior is indicative of somebody who really isn’t looking forward to the near-future.

He is not worried, his people have preped the questioners about what to ask.

First question to POS: Do you recall how you felt when you killed Osama.

First question to Romney: How can you belong to a church who denied heaven to blacks. Don’t you think that is kind of racist?

Next question to POS: When you and the lovely first lady go on vacation, who decides where you will go?

Next question to Romney: How do you live with your decision to have been a principal of a preditory firm like Bain which moved jobs overseas, closed domestic companies and removed benefits from over worked and under paid employees of firms which were bought by Bain?

and so on.

He doesn't need to prep

the media will softball him with slow pitches over the plate and look for questions to box in hapless Romney

and being hapless..Romney will not attack them over it like Newt did and cling to his Barack the socialist trying to extinguish the culture of evil mostly old dead white guy America is afterall a nice guy

it is the stupidest run campaign I have seen in my life next to Dole..it's worse than McCain

just look at his advisers...who's who of RINO putas like Gillespie and other GOP moderates of this era..same fools who are experts at grasping defeat from the jaws of victory and who were the quickest to distance themselves from Reagan after his last term

sickening...

he may pull it off given the hatred for Obama but it won't be cause he did shite right

Several years ago, people accused GWB of using a radio to “cheat” during a debate.

I wouldn’t put it beyond the teleprompter reader in chief to actually have some sort of plan along similar lines so he can get through without sounding like some sort of ghetto thug not having TOTUS to carry him along.

That would explain his apparent lack of interest in preparing.

I was thinking this very same thing the other day. I've never seen a race where it looks like neither candidate wants the job, until now, that is. They've probably both been informed of bad things on the horizon and would rather curl up into the fetal position.

It seemed like Obama was praising Hoover Dam. Nice...impressive dam, and very impressive project. Money invested by the federal government that STILL is returning bank.

So, what are Obama’s Hoover Dams: Solyndra, and related? Maybe his plan (if not already done) to take down multiple dams in the Northwest, because the Sierra Club demands it.

No, Hoover Dam represents everything that Obama is not - it was a (rare) wise investment by the feds, and it created REAL JOBS, and HUGE GROWTH for this country.

Rehearsing for the debates for several days and sightseeing, too. And I bet he spends his evenings watching Honey Boo-Boo shows so he can catch up on what's going on in the world. That is when he is not watching tapes of himself on The View or Letterman.

Looks like neither candidate wants the job? Are you kidding? Mitt has been running for about 6 years now, probably planning since his dad ran. He’s out campaigning almost every day, raising millions, planning strategy, etc. You gotta want to win to go through all of that work. I and most people I know wouldn’t last a week. It looks exhausting with all of the travel and living on a plane and in hotels.

Without any internal guide, these toddlers-by-choice have become increasingly feral, erratic, and destructive— they are going nuts expecting a strong outside hand to eventually stop them.

No smackdown ever comes, so they push the outrageous behavior as far as it needs to go, desperate that someone will eventually force an end to the madness.

Pretty much sums up leftists, muslims, rap culture, garden-variety abusers and bullies, the media... anyone who only functions on raw emotion and the base survival instinct of ego: power for the sake of power. Narcissists, all.

At least a 2YO doesn’t know any better, and *supposed to be* trained out of his miserable, self-serving world by his parents and other responible adults who understand the importance of civilizing the little devil.

You might be right. You usually are. But, this time, I hope you are wrong.

The one question in my mind is what has happened to all of the money that the campaign and the PACs have raised?

When are we going to see the fruits of that labor?

I’m not in a battleground state, but I am in a light blue state. Obama is 3 points ahead here, according to the last poll. Michelle was in Seattle...why?

There’s something going on and I don’t understand the reasoning behind it.

Romney’s poll numbers are getting better without the expenditures.

There’s something going on and I don’t understand the reasoning behind it.

There is a malevolent, lying, controlling spirit that hangs over Washington. It's the same one that runs the Middle East peace process. Most pols are on board with it by default (it's speaks in their native tongue - deceit), but the rest it must "invite" with whatever threat will work. Fear has been a pretty reliable motivator.

Well there goes the squishy GOP, because the spineless amoebas can be easily squished into a corner.

The GOP has allowed the enemy to dictate the terms (think "peace" process). The terms always mean surrender, death, and destruction, so long as the enemy is crafting the documents.

When are we going to see the fruits of that [fundraising] labor?

When an invertebrate in the mix is willing to stand up and claim a spine.

One president stood in stark opposition to the way of the world (and its lying spirit): Ronald Reagan. Everybody knows it. He prospered and functioned on a level so far above the media gotcha games and perverse tactics of the left that they marveled in awe and respect (even if in complete revulsion and bitterness).

He succeed because at the core of his being was Truth. Just plain old goodness, love, and strength of character. He wasn't perfect, but his heart was. That is, he was like David, a man after God's own heart (and David pulled some really evil and self-serving stunts). Reagan's enemies preferred the path of lies. Thus they could only hope to craft schemes to bring him down.

The point is, while the GOP is full of gutless worms, we know it is capable of producing a warrior (read: fearless) David who can take down Goliath with one well-aimed stone.

I've got to hope that the desperate times (of universal deceit) that have placed America into immediate peril, will push Mitt to jump on the same highway that Reagan travelled. No speed bumps, deer, or toll booths.

That's the only road out of the wilderness, yet no pol thusfar is willing to take it. *That's* what everyone is nervous about.

Speaking of polls (and Goliath), we know that truth is crucified at the place of the poll. The message was written here long ago, for anyone who finds it of interest:

Mark 15

22 And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.
23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

1115 Golgotha {gol-goth-ah'} of Aramaic origin [cf 01538]

01538 gulgoleth {gul-go'-leth}
by reduplication from 01556; TWOT - 353l; n f
AV - poll 7, scull 2, every man 2, head 1; 12
1) head, poll, skull
1a) skull
1b) head, poll (of census)

Screw the polls and their deceiving "expected" outcomes. What we need is for Goliath to lose *his* head at the place of the truth.

Every state is a battleground state, a valley of decision as it were.
