Was Obama rattled by developing donor scandal story?
Washington Examiner ^

Posted on 10/04/2012 5:37:49 PM PDT by TigerClaws

President Obama reelection campaign, rattled by his Wednesday night debate performance, could be in for even worse news. According to knowlegable sources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.

Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday.

Likely so TC, but Obama is constantly looking for excuses. It’s “never his fault”, always someone (or something) else. Spoilt little boy’s excuse.

No, he is just stupid without a teleprompter.

You mean there’s something more scandalous than George Soros buying our President and other civil liabilities?

He was rattled because he couldn’t remember if he had wished a happy anniversary shoutout to Michelle . . . or Reggie Love.

“I’m surprised. I was shocked, actually,” Sidney Barthwell, a district court magistrate in Michigan who attended Cranbrook with Romney and Harvard Law School with Obama, told The Daily. “That was not the Barack Obama I’ve seen through the years. I’m thinking the man might have had the flu or something.”

We can only HOPE he was rattled by this burgeoning scandal, but, I think he was just pissed that his regular Wednesday at the White House Party Night was postponed—he was going through withdrawal.

Yes, 2008. There was one lady FReeper on here (forget her name) who posted frequently and suspected that his "small" donations actually were received that way to avoid limits on individual donors.

At the end of the 2008 presidential campaign, the Obama-Biden effort was hit with a similar scandal. At the time, the Washington Post reported that the Obama campaign let donors use "largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor's identity."

He wasn’t rattled, he’s just not a competent person and could not defend his record. He tried to use his pathetic campaign speech rhetoric, but none of that stuff works when there is someone to rebut it. The media could not run interference during those 90 minutes.

It could've been a lot of things including that the ego maniac believed no one could out perform him, but I'd prefer to believe it was a prayer request posted here and the response by Freepers with prayers for Mitt Romney and Our Country.

Don't stop praying until we rid ourselves of the evil that has befallen our beloved Country!

I think the man is too arrogant to be rattled by anything. He is so used to be propped up by his party and the MSM and given passes that he actually believes the hype. Back in the 2008 election he debated an opponent who disarmed himself before the debates. In fact, McCain's entire campaign was run as if he really hoped that Obama would win. He even fired campaign staffers who simply pointed out factual information about Obama and his record. So now that we have a Republican candidate who acts as if he truly wants to win, Obama is finding it harder than he expected.

Meanwhile, I agree we need to continue to pray for God's mercy on our country and that Obama loses the election, or our country as we know it will be gone forever. There will be no possibility of return if Obama gets to have way. I pray that he remains strong in the battle with God's help.

Fun trivia:

Hassan Nemazee was born in Washington in 1950 and graduated with honors from Harvard University in 1972, according to his Web site. The online site lists affiliations with institutions including the RAND Center for Middle East Public Policy, the Asia Society, Harvard’s Center for International Affairs and Nemazee Hospital in Shiraz, Iran*, which was built into a modern facility by his father, Mohamed Nemazee, according to the site. -VIA 62 posted on 09/22/2009 3:50:43 AM PDT by maggief

[Obama advisor Valerie] Jarrett was born in Shiraz, Iran to American parents James E. Bowman and Barbara Taylor Bowman. Her father, a pathologist and geneticist, ran a hospital for children in Shiraz, as part of a program where American doctors and agricultural experts sought to help jump-start developing countries’ health and farming efforts. When she was five, the family moved to London for one year, returning to Chicago in 1963.----http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valerie_Jarrett

I don't know if it's the same hospital but Obama trivia can sure be fun.

Other Obama donors are curiosities as well, seems more than just Nemazee landed in jail already.

...... The Syrian-born Rezko is an infamous Chicago slumlord, fast-food restauranteur, and sleazy political operator who played a key role in the Blagojevich case- as well as the unlikley ascension to power of Barrack Hussein Obama.Obama's longtime ally, friend, and top fundraiser was found guilty of 16/24 counts of felony influence peddling back in June 2008...... Nemazee, Rezko, two felons so far... there's more. I'm guessing there's something that will come out relating to the video maker too.

But I don't think Obama was "off his game" ... he just didn't have a teleprompter and he was so bad even the press didn't know what to do to help him recover. Maybe Media Matters' website broke down during the debate and they had no marching orders!

You never know maybe after last night the media will be bolder. I mean, if there is a chance their candidate isn’t going to win they need to be brown nosing Romney.

I sincerely beleive that is what happened, and praise God for it,

There were a lot of folks out there binding and rebuking the spirit of this thing each time it spoke,

the blinders have come off for many,

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

“Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 18:18
