Obama finally gets in his witty replies to Romney-48 hours late.Did the 2 teleprompters help a bit?
Mail Online ^ | 5 October 2012 | TOBY HARNDEN

Speaking at an event in Fairfax, Virginia, a relaxed and confident President Barack Obama had plenty of witty retorts and quotable sound bites to aim at his challenger Mitt Romney. The problem was that they came a day and a half after he had been demolished by Romney during the first presidential debate in Denver and were scripted and delivered with the aid of a pair of teleprompters flanking the stage.

None of obama’s remarks to date have been witty, intelligent, or germane.

Obama had the look of a person who knew he was lying, and knew everybody could tell.

Oboma’s all set if at the next debate Romney isn’t present.

hey, this is the transparent presidency!

it wasn’t fair that those that are really in charge couldn’t use the puppet strings of the TOTUS to tell him what to say?

how can they claim to be compassionate and leave this buffoon on his own?

it is not fair. he should only have to appear with the left-wing hollywood types and only have to talk to those that slobber over him or get tingles up their legs.

greatest orator ever? all the left wingers went limp when saw the impotency of their messiah.

Blessings, bobo

I described it as a teenager who meekly endured a 90 minute lecture from his dad, then leaves the house to meet up with his buddies and begins to tell them his fictionalized version of what happened...unfortunately, in this case, there were 70 million witnesses.

Saw a bit on (I think) Greta last night. Someone was asking the debate audience members leaving if they thought it was unfair for the prez not to have been allowed to use the TOTUS. Overwhelmingly they said it was unfair; that he should have been able to use the teleprompter.

Sad.

Another Freeper described it perfectly....Obama is the stereotypical punk who gets his butt kicked, runs away with his tail between his legs, and then talks tough once he’s safely out of range.

Childish prattle.

Like, that wasn’t the real Romney at the debate.

Like, paid sychophants at Obama’s rallies and I quote “slurp slurp gulp gulp slurp gulp” (man that koolaid was sooooo goooooood!).

it is sad. each generation seems to get dumbed down by our union led skool systems.

they don’t know what a debate is.

they don’t know what the constitution says, which most of our representatives don’t understand, but they take an oath to.

i watched the video from stern questioning obama voters. they shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

if you have no skin in the game, no brains, can’t even identify the nominees or their position, you are too stupid to vote.

the Founding Fathers had it right.

Blessings, bobo

Barack knew that he really gave Romney a good butt whipping.

Then the drugs wore off.

It's a good thing Barack has Valerie Jarrett to wipe the coke off his
nose and keep him supplied with Krispy Kreme donuts or it would
have been much worse.

One day I was walking down an alley heading back home in the middle of the day when I saw a little rat dog in front of me barking like a maniac. Ferocious. The closer I got to the dog, the more subdued and less frequent his barks became. And when I was right on top of him it was more like just air escaping his lungs while looking down at his paws. But with each step I took away from him, the barks got a little louder until there was sufficient distance between us, then he started channeling his inner doberman again. I laughed all the way home.

The most adept liars can look you in the eye and blatantly lie. Schemers caught red-handed look at the floor. I was astonished to see him gazing at the floor because he is such an adept liar.

The first debate was a great example of what happens when the moderator stays out of it and there is actual give and take between the candidates. In a contest of ideas the Left ALWAYS come up short.

Their slogans and cute catch phrases are designed to appeal to emotion and not the intellect. They only sound good when they can’t be challenged by the other side.

This is like the QB who couldn’t complete a pass in the Sunday game going 10 for 10 in the following day’s practice session.

Ya gotta do it when it counts - no mulligans.

Romney had better be careful at the next debate. Barry is going to drag out “the big guns”. A guy dressed in a chicken suit and some puppets. The 47% love it. To heck with jobs and the economy. We must save the chicken suit guy!

Yup.

BTW I understand Larry David is a liberal, but I wonder what he'd make of all this (see George Costanza).

He can't think on his feet and he's not all that bright - he needs someone to give him a script. Unscripted, what you saw is all he's got.

As Charles Krauthammer stated, this is what the French call “the wit of the staircase.” i.e. the witty things that someone should have said at a party but doesn’t think of until on the way OUT.

In the debate Obama didn't have the cojones to lie to Mitt Romney's face after Mitt called him on a few of his lies and more than once

Now this fugly jug eared POS is back to lying on the campaign trail, it is what he likes, it is what he does best

Stella got his teleprompter back.

How would you use a teleprompter in a debate?

I can just imagine it.

“What is your plan to reduce the deficit?”

“I beg to disagree, my health plan does not cut 700 billion from Medicare it just reduces payments to doctors and hospitals.”

Add your own scenario.

LOL! Thanks for the correction! I was semi-dozing when I watched the clip, and missed where the students had come from.
