Attending a star-studded concert that included the likes of Katy Perry and Stevie Wonder where money was raised money for his campaign, President Obama said "everybody here is incredible professionals, they're such great friends and they just perform flawlessly, night after night."

"I can't always say the same," the President said to laughter from the crowd at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.

I guess that means he’s going to really tear up the floor boards in the next debate. Go for it, 0bunky!

That’s all Obama thinks the job is.
PERFORMING like an actor in a TV show.

Obama’s performance in the “economy debate” mirrored his performance in that area.....EPIC FAIL! Now Obama is cracking jokes about it!

The next debate will be on foreign relations. This another area of EPIC FAIL for Obama......

If Obama claims his crowning success is the killing of Osama bin Laudin, all Romney needs to do is remind him that the effort began in the Bush Administration using “Advanced Interogation Techniques,” that Obama opposed; in Gitmo, a place Obama wants to close; on terrorists that Obama wants to release or give US civil rights to; by a military that Obama dislikes.... and the killing of Osama is the only place where Obama can truthfully say was “BUSH’s FAULT!”

How this guy garners the love and adoration shown him is beyond my ability to comprehend.

The next Debate will be another rigged Townhall just like they pulled on Bush way back when. Look for a new version of the Pony Tailed Guy in the audience. Probably the Obama Phone Woman.

The last Debate is on Foreign Policy.

“The last Debate is on Foreign Policy.”

I stand corrected, Thanks!

You’re right about any townhall debate being “rigged.” I hope tgat Romney has a counter to this a the ready! I suspect that Mitt will be as well prepared as the first time.....

That's ghetto talk. Or dumb speak. Grammar run through a limb shredder.

"Everyone here is incredibly professional" would work.

Obama does not want to be around when the horrors of his policies hit the fan.

He will be 2,000+ miles away from the mainland, in a 35 Million dollar fortress.

It’s obvious he doesn’t want to be the President, but he does want all the perks of being President.

Notice how he continues to resort to what amounts to a lousy, stand-up comedy routine on the stump?

That’s all he has. He can’t run on his record, he can only crack jokes, go on talk shows late-night, and call Romney a liar.

But when face to face in a debate, he’s limp and can’t perform.

What you could’nt hold it together for one evening let alone a series of them.

Hello, huge Presidential debate in front of 70 million does not compare to schlepping out lip synched numbers from autocues at the MGM Las Vegas like Cher.

and that is exactly why i think he is throwing the election and does not want to win because he knows what is going to hit him in a 2nd term and it aint going to be pretty but as usual the GOP will have to clean up the mess again.

Making jokes, albeit unfunny ones, is all he’s got. There’s no there there. No substance. No rebuttals to Romneys arguments except jokes or calling Romney a liar. Yeah, that’s super presidential. We can’t survive 4 more years with no leadership. In addition, obuttboy is a sick puppy and needs more or better meds for starters.

Zero has had a disaster going for 4 years that has caused a ton of pain that will be really hard to reverse. He deserves to lose for this - not for a bad debate performance.

Obama not only sees the debate as a performance, clearly he views the Presidency that way too.

The clear implication being that he can,and does,perform flawlessly on *most* nights (and,presumably,days as well).

No,it didn't fail...it was just set improperly.It was set to "ghetto" instead of "rich white leftists".

If you're a liberal, Zero hasn't performed enough. If you're a Conservative, Zero has had the most destructive performance in the history of our country--enough to make Jimmah Cahtah happy to be Number 2!

That said...

To quote mooova: Clueless, classless piece of trailertrash.
And, he’s our president.
Lord, save us...


To those of faith: The Lord has given us everything we need to save ourselves. But we do need to pull ourselves together, educate others, get our Conservative message out, vote the 0 and any D'rats and RINOs out of office, and hold those in office accountable.

It starts with our votes.

Yes that would work too and it has a somewhat different inference to it. Was he saying the people there were acting very professionally at that moment towards him or was he saying that those people were professionals in their careers and very good at them? TOTUS mangles the English language so badly it's hard to know what he intended to convey.

In all seriousness I can follow authentic American ebonics better than I can his Choom Gang gibberish.

This, I believe, is correct. He was flattering them by saying they all perform flawlessly all the time, while he (little self-deprecating smirk) had one off night.

Of course, musical performers have Autotune, recorded backup tracks, support people ... and anyone who has ever attended a performance knows that a performer is sometimes better, sometimes worse, and never "flawless." But why let reality intrude into a cloud of leftist mutual-admiration opium-smoke?

“everybody here is incredible professionals,” - 0bama

Or it could mean...

"Everybody, I would like to introduce you to some incredible professionals."

(At which point he asks his teleprompter technicians to stand up and take a bow.)
