Team Obama Blames John Kerry for Debate Loss
Breitbart ^ | Oct. 6, 2012 | Alexander Marlow

Posted on 10/06/2012 4:16:14 PM PDT by tapatio

The Obama campaign has been reeling since losing the first Presidential debate of this election cycle in front of 67 million viewers. They've tried--and thus far failed--to craft a narrative to explain away the debacle in Denver. Previously, we reported to you that Obama Senior Advisor David Plouffe, who ran the President's successful 2008 campaign, (falsely) accused Mitt Romney of lying. In a rare comedic moment from the typically robotic former Vice President Al Gore, he suggested on Current TV that the Mile High City's altitude was the reason Obama was low on energy and enthusiasm. Neither of those caught on with the mainstream pro-Obama media.

Somehow I ended up on a left wing mailing list of Move On. This is an email re how the left wing progressives feel about the debate:

Dear MoveOn member,

That was infuriating.

During last night’s presidential debate, Mitt Romney smirked his way through dozens of mischaracterizations, distortions, and outright lies. The moderator, Jim Lehrer, never cut him off. And now the mainstream media is saying that Mitt won the debate.

We can’t let Romney “win” the debate on a boatload of lies.

He lied about his tax plan, his deficit plan, and Medicare. He lied about what “Obamacare” would do. He lied, baldly and convincingly, about Obama’s entire presidency.1

We need to move quickly to set the record straight. Our online team worked overnight preparing a media blitz—including online ads targeted at swing-state voters—correcting the worst lies in an easy-to-share format.

Chip in $5 to get the truth out—countering Mitt’s lies.

If we don’t fight back now with the truth, some of those lies will stick, and Romney could pull ahead.

Already, Romney and his Super PAC friends have spent millions on blatantly false ads attacking President Obama for gutting work requirements for welfare and cutting $700 million from Medicare.

Last night was more of the same.

And research shows that when lies get repeated enough times people will believe them—no matter how outlandish they might seem. The only way to keep Romney honest is to make sure the facts get corrected on the spot.

We’re now in the moment when millions of undecided voters who don’t usually pay attention to politics start to focus.

This is it. This is what MoveOn’s massive online network is for. Let’s use it.

Please chip in $5.

Thanks for all you do.

–Angie, Mark, Lenore, Tate, and the rest of the team

It was his and the wookie’s anniversary.

I'm sure it had to have already been mentioned elsewhere, though I haven't seen it, but I think this speaks volumes about the real nature of their marriage together.

The debate schedules were put in place months ago. You don't think someone from Team Obama, particularly TOTUS or FLOTUS themselves, would've mentioned that Wednesday, October 3rd, was a landmark anniversary date (20th year) and the debate should be scheduled for another night?! OK, rule Monday out because of MNF, but why not Tuesday or Thursday?

Was avoiding going head-to-head against Dancing With The Stars, or some other vacuous tv show, more important than your 20th wedding anniversary?!

Well, apparently Diurnal (or should I say D' Urinal) got the ZOT Kitties excited. He/she/it doesn't come up on a search. Nor can we see what caused the ruckus since his post was deleted. Oh, heck. In any event, it's time for some fun...

We need to go back to allowing ONLY Americans to be elected to the presidency. Barry is a girlyman and never takes the blame for anything.

Point worth repeating. In all our/your/everyone's slicing and dicing and analyzing, we've overlooked the fact that Obama has not yet manned up and taken the blame for his poor performance. He has yet to say, "I did poorly and it was my fault."

That is the difference between what we've got, and what the People expected in a President. Buck stops, etc. etc.

I hope the people who believed the media crap in 2008 are finally, now, repenting at leisure.

Oh, and guys? We told you so!!!

Kerry promised that would end the Romney campaign when Mitt tried to explain his actions by saying his dad brainwashed him . . . .

Okay, you win the Recondite Reference of the Week Award for that one .... going all the way back to George Romney's "I was brainwashed about Vietnam" blivet. Good fetch.

Obama reminds me of Eddie Haskell...a phony, pampered, whining, conniving, brown noser, who uses people, blames others for his mistakes and thinks he’s a lot smarter than he really is.

You've just described the typical privlege-academy product who goes into government, his eyes glowing in the dark with his power need, to work long hours for a pittance, just so he can get his hands on something.

And they all want to have cool armored trains and firing squads, like Zhivago's Strelnikov.

Noam Chomsky called them "the New Mandarins". Newsweek, 15 years ago, followed Chomsky when their writers described as "Mandarins" the rising tide of the "new style" politicians like Bill Clinton, Lamar Alexander, the Kennedys, and the rest of the privilege-academy products who never worked an honest job in their lives and don't intend to.

"...is that the same john kerry who served in viet nam?"

Know you're being facetious, but...

Yup, the same guy who supposedly took fire in Cambodia on Christmas - bwahahaha. The same guy who requested safe off-shore swift boat duty (for base comforts versus haze gray and under way), until said boats were re-assigned up river into the "sh*t", much to Kerry's chagrin.

The same guy who got his 3 Purple Hearts from scratches to bug out of VN (within 6 months?), one of which he put in himself. The same guy who a following swift boat 50 cal gunner (best viewpoint on said boat) said he turned his boat and ran, leaving the other two boats in the midst of a cross-fire.

The same guy who threw his medals over the fence at the WH and testified against his shipmates and other forces in VN. Yes, the very same POS.

60 milliion other Citizens also saw that for the first time where his bitches in the press couldn’t cover for him and he couldn’t run. They are now reacting the only way they can. Lie!

Crisply accurate call. This debate really pushed the godling in their faces, they guy they've been saying for four solid years practically walked on water.

Now they're getting a taste of reality -- this guy walks on golf courses. And it shows. His work ethic showed in his debate prep. It all showed.

In 1972, the media drones, rebuffed and rejected by the People in the Coven's 9:1 choice of McGovern over Nixon, set out vindictively to "prove" the People wrong and justify their favoritism for a parlor-pink senator.

Now the shoe is on the other foot, and all they can do is look on helplessly as their handiwork, their lovingly tooled train-wreck of a candidate, begins to come apart on national television.

Jumped-up rent-boy, weed-puffing playboy, down-low phony with a phonied-up and covered-up past, Manchurian handlers and jihadi pals, Saudi money, shady connections all over the place, even a few Arkancides here and there -- let it all come out.

When it's over, please God, ever so many of these self-made giants of the Democratic Party will be in prison, including everyone who signed affidavits and guaranties of this imposter's bona fides. That means you, Nancy Pelosi. And you, Tom Daschle. And Vernon Jordan -- you get a year in federal, just for "walking him around". Axelgrease, Holder, Plouffe, Jarrett, Jennings the Child-Molester, all the Communist conspirators, the czars, the helpers, the handlers -- everybody falls.

HAHA!!! I just went on a Sam Kinison video spree on YouTube.

Man, that guy was frigging hilarious...I just sw the episode of Married With Children where he was Al’s Guardian Angel.

Many clips of him on Rodney Dangerfield’s show out there, too.

I remember Sam well, and miss his comedy. He died too young.

Reality bites -- hadn't heard that one. So he tried to fox the detailers and find a cushy groove that would allow him to wait out the war sucking down brews on an anchored LST and then say, years later on the stump, "I served in-country, I'm a 'Nam veteran" -- and they sent him up the river into the Delta? Ex-cellent.

The same guy who threw his medals over the fence at the WH ....

Additional detail, FRiend -- they weren't his medals. He talked another guy out of his medals and threw those over the fence. He kept his. Only now he can't show them, he doesn't dare.

Does Kerry get another Purple Heart for taking the Denver hit? This hit might sting longer than the first ones.

Exactly. As long as he continues to blame everyone but the man in the mirror, he’ll continue to fail to fix the debate problem.

There’s no way he’s going to get back the brain cells he smoked away. Even with the teleprompter, he talks like a high school kid reading a report. His voice inflection is way out of sync with the content of his wording.

That’s Powers Booth. He was Curly Bill Brocius in Tombstone. That’s the source for the photo. The statement, “Well, Bye!” was from a scene where the Earps were leaving Tombstone for California.
