L.A. Times Lays Groundwork to Explain Obama Debate Performance
Breitbart ^

Posted on 09/27/2012 6:13:35 AM PDT by Perdogg

The first presidential debate is only a week away, but the L. A. Times is laying the groundwork to explain a bad Obama performance in the contest. In a September 26 article, L. A. Times writer Christi Parsons is already foreseeing the possibility of a rocky Obama performance. Her reason why Obama may under perform? He's busy.

As far as Parsons is concerned, Obama is at a disadvantage for the up coming debates because he is busy being president and has less time for debate practice than Romney.

All Romney has to do is repeat what he did to Gingrich in Florida and this race is over.

She also knows that without a teleprompter or total control of questions, Obama isn’t very good.

Why not explain. The Obama media has been explaining his poor performance for almost 4 years now. We expect the same BS we have been getting so far.

Yeah, appearing on the View really cuts into your debate prep time.

Obama will be given all the questions ahead of time; he will study up and his answers will be polished. The moderators will protect him at all cost.

Agree completely. If Obama has a bad night after this kind of advantage, he truly is an incredible imbecile.

I thought I read somewhere that they both would have a copy of the questions. If thats true, it would be the only thing that would save obama.

You think he's not going to have control of the questions? Not literally of course. But for all practical purposes he may as well have.

Surely the smartest man in the world does not need much time to prepare. The media are digging their own grave (and ours) by helping this economy busting idiot.

As I posted on a previous thread, he’ll not only have the
questions, he’ll have scripted answers in simple language that won’t allow him to trip himself up. He’s taking three days off to prepare to read those answers. The “busy” narrative won’t fly.

“Mr. pResident, what are your kids names?”

“Mr. Romney, Exactly how many rounds of ammunition were fired in Iraq from 2006 through 2010, not counting those
fired during Ramadan, and what caliber were they?”

The liberal media are trying to lower expectations for Obama. That’s a waste of time when every sensible American expects nothing but wrong answers and destruction from that community organizer.

Hers is exactly the opposite conclusion an intelligent person would reach:

If he’s so busy and focused on doing his job, then in a debate for his job, he should be able to rattle off anything about his job, right off the top of his head.

He should have complete command of the debates.

Obama has mastered the Black NFL Player shtick: look cool, be a clown — and the American people will forgive any lack of talent or egregious behavior.

I'm expecting him to belittle Romney and say things like”Well you are not the President, I am and you do not get all the info I do and standing there questioning me with no facts must be easy but the fact is I have the facts, I have the intel and know much more than you do”

Guarantee that the jug eared turd will mention how he is the President.

He’s busy collecting cash from Hollywood and Vegas and providing his magnificent being as “eye candy” for the old crones on “The View.” The problem he and his presstitutes have is that he won’t have his TOTUS to give him the answers,. That’s why he’ll give his deadly dull, 5 minute non-answers to the debate questions. We’ve all seen this movie before.

It should be a fair debate. So Romney should offer to do it with one teleprompter tied behind his back.

Obama is at a disadvantage for the up coming debates because he is busy playing golf and dragging the cash sack all over the country.

If that’s his approach, I guarantee he will lose the election. Americans hate a failure. But they reserve their most intense disgust for those who are arrogant in their failure.

Unlikely. Both Romney and his GOP-e milquetoast handlers despise Newt FAR more than they do President Bonzo and the debate performance will reflect that fact.

Besides, if Ronmey dares go 'out of character' and says anything the least bit accurate about Bonzo, the media will beat him to death and release instant polls showing how 'unlikeable' Mitt is. It will be like when big, bad mean Ricky Lazio attacked that poor, sweet little Hitlery girl all over again.

Mitt Romney should work in a line like the following:

Mr. President, I'm sure you're only here at this debate for "eye candy," but it's representative of your last four years in the White House...

Her reason why Obama may under perform? He's busy.

He has time for "Pimp with a Limp".

He has time to party with Jay-Z and Beyonce.

He has the time to proclaim himself "eye candy" on "The View".

He has the time to party in Vegas during a major international crisis.

Somehow, I don't think "he's busy" is going to work as an excuse.

I guess the LA Times got their talking points from some Dem PR firms... It would be nice if they would wait until after the debate to decide where to kiss Obama’s butt... or how to kiss it... whatever.
