Sam Donaldson had some harsh words this weekend for President Obama's performance at Wednesday's debate.
Appearing on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show, the former ABC White House correspondent said, "If he comes to the next two debates with the same demeanor, with the same passive resistance, hes losing" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Sam Donaldson: 'If Obama Comes to the Next Two Debates With the Same Demeanor He's Losing'
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Sam, huge impact of that debate Wednesday night?
SAM DONALDSON: Big. Think John Kennedy in 1960, think Ronald Reagan in 1980. It's possibly that big because the president seemed to be on a glide path toward re-election, and all of a sudden here comes the raging bull, Mitt Romney, out of the dock, and the toreador runs for the safety exits instead of counterpunching, instead of getting him hard. What happened to Barack Obama? I'm not certain. I don't know. But I know this: if he comes to the next two debates with the same demeanor, with the same passive resistance, hes losing.
His rug is probably mohair. He raises mohair goats, and I think with a govt subsidy.
“Who is the coolest guy
That is what am
Fast talkin’, slow walkin’
Good lookin’ Mohair Sam”
It appears Moochel is wearing his pair and is a little uncomfortable trying to carry his for him....
Barry on the other hand is saying...good swap!...Now watch what my finger can do...
I read a pretty interesting article by Byron York today that went over O’s “work” history.
To summarize..got bored easily, impatient with his ideas not being implemented quickly, always wanted a higher office...and didn’t stay on a job or political position more than 4-5 years.
Looks like his time line may have maxed out. I don’t think he wants the job any longer either.
Watch the following youtube wherein Gore comes up behind a speaking Bush, Bush nods with a bemused look
If they separate, who will get the house? Would that mean double security?
Its not the softball qustions Obama gets vs. The zingers Romney will. It all matters on how Romney reacts to Obama’s softball answers and nails him to the wall for his lies. Judging on how Romney fared well in the first debate, i’m sure he’ll do fine kicking some tail!
Don’t recall journalists being worried about McCain’s first debate performance. I thought he thought they were his friend.
You know his posture just appears really weak. Even the position of his feet signal weakness.
There is just no doubt whatsoever as to who wears the testicles in that family.
I am sure you have heard the saying ‘If looks could kill’
Your scenario could happen given the media and chosen moderators.
But don’t sound so gleeful.
Maybe it won’t.
He is losing regardless, Sam you irrelevant old demagouge.
I think someone does some wishful thinking and dreaming
What do you mean if? Please have a little more confidence
My wife says the same thing. Me? I can SEE what she is talking about, but... that would just be too strange..
Get over it. Newt isn’t the nominee
Obama will bounce back in the ‘town hall’ this week. It’ll be full of planted soft balls for him and gotchas for Romney.
Immediately after the debate, the first pundit I heard was Donaldson who claimed he wasn’t sure who won the debate!
I guess we just have to wait and see, don’t we?
I did see Mitt go over to his podium and do something, but I don't remember the Zero's coming back in.
That picture is so full of hate by the Zero's, love the look on Romney as he knows they are looking at him with spite.
