Obama plans Virginia debate camp
politico44 ^ | 10/5/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 10/05/2012 10:34:17 AM PDT by ColdOne

To remedy this, there will be more extensive preparation for Obama before the next showdown -- now much higher stakes for Obama -- at Hofstra University. Obama will set up debate camp at the end of next week in Williamsburg, Va.

Now that is funny. Like he will pay attention/apply himself any more than he did at this last “debate camp”.

I just don’t think he has it in him.

I don't think we need to worry too much. He'll go in enthusiastic but within a few hours, his eyes will glaze over, he'll start day-dreaming, he'll start doodling on his notepad. At some point, Axelrod will say, “Yo. Barack! Are you paying attention?”

There are a lot of nice golf courses around Williamsburg.

Perhaps this time he will get a firm grip on himself and master debate camp.

It’s a town hall debate. If he comes off harsher than last night, he may anger independents for being too mean.

You can’t be that tough on an opponent during a town hall. Ask Gore how that helped him..

No matter how many talking points/lies they feed into his brain, he'll not be able to properly file, organize and then retrieve them in any coherent manner.

The only way 0 can be on his "speaking game" is with TOTUS.

When the work of debate preparation starts to become a “drag”, like the last one, maybe he go go on over and play at “Bush” Gardens.

Rehab, crash courses in capitalism, basic economics, the Constitution and Realpolitiks, and perhaps intensive instruction and meditation on the Boy Scout Oath and Law, would help him more than a Debate Camp designed to put lipstick on a pig.

Michelle will be in charge of the cafeteria menu;

Steven Chu will be in charge of deciding when “lights out” will be!

Arne Duncan will be in charge of bunkbed assignments.

Anita Dunn will be in charge of yard exercises and song selection.

Tom Vilsak will take charge of which shifts get to work in the rice fields, and which days of the week will be work days and which shall be days devoted to self-introspection and learning songs for Ms. Dunns’ yard exercises.

Every camp attendee will receive, as part of their tuition, a free cellular phone and email account.

Anyone urinating in the woods will receive beatings from Ken Salazr until their morale and demeanor improves.

Each attendee will be required to sign a pledge of allegiance to Mr. 0bama, and tuitions may, on a case by case basis, be reviewed for eligibility for student aid. Such aid, however, will be in the form of tuition loans, to be repaid over a period of 7 years, and will not be dischargeable in the event of attendee bankruptcy.

Virginia is a battleground state. He will be campaigning there in addition to debate prep. This is a smokescreen as VA is slipping away.

If he knew what he was doing in the first place, as president, he wouldn't need so much prep, would he....

He wasn't presidential material in 2008 and he isn't now - just a propped up backbencher.

This will be interesting. Here we have a malignant narcissist who got totally outclassed in a venue he thought he owned. He’s going to stew on that endlessly ‘til the next debate. Meanwhile, his handlers will be pouring advice, criticism, coaching, facts at him like a fire hydrant, trying to straighten him out. It won’t work. No amount of last-minute debate prep can fix a guy who simply doesn’t understand what he’s talking about.

He won’t be able to escape the public scorn seeping through the cocoon they keep him in and it will work on him like dripping acid. Speaking of dripping acid, there’s the Mooch; she’s gonna be all over his butt. She even started before he got off the stage.

His state of mind when he has to step out on the stage again with Romney will be very tenuous. He will have tried to rebuild the mythic bubble around his ego by latching onto every lame excuse proffered but deep inside he’ll know that he’s not up to the task. We may see something spectacular in the next debate.

This was my prayer request for the first debate and it will continue to be for the second......

I'll be missing the debate tonight, but I just wanted to offer a prayer for Romney, who, after all is fighting this battle for us. I believe with all my heart that if we don't win this election we will never see another republican president. Father I lift up Romney to you, I pray for the wisdom of Solomon, the guidance of the Holy Spirit and a sharp tongue to sting his opponent. I also pray that You cause confusion in the mind of Obama and that his tongue will stick to the roof of his mouth... In Jesus name I pray!

WE SERVE and awesome God who hears our prayers and sees our tears and the injustice that is being abused by the mediaDEMONS!

On the other hand, Obama received a grievous head wound Wednesday night and now the "debate camp counselors" will try to give him a voice with an ear and throat implant.

Yes - whatever else one says about Bill Clinton (and there’s a lot that could be said!) he was - and probably still is - an impressive debater. Obama is not in the same league.

His internal polling everywhere sucks and that is why he was just going through the motions in the debate.

The look on Moochie's face afterward was one of "that mean white boy has crapped in our Easter basket."

They both know that only a miracle can win for them and the Miracle-Lip Special Sauce jar is empty.

Makes Cumberland College's 222-0 loss to Georgia Tech pale in comparison.

As Dennis Miller said, "Obama got owned. Repossessed and re-owned.

The guy has no clue about economics, world affairs or anything else. He's a puppet, the debate proved it to anyone who was dumb enough to think otherwise!

. I don't think a sitting president, with four years under his belt, should need all that preparation. He was NEVER qualified for any job, anywhere, especially not the leader of a country!

Town Hall format w/the questions filtered by handlers could be big trouble for Romney.

Guy at Bush/Clinton TH debate was not allowed to ask tough question of Clinton, later said the whole thing was a setup.
