'SNL' mocks Obama's lackluster debate appearance
Las Angeles Times ^ | October 7, 2012 | Claire Zulkey

..........The most pointed sketch, however, mocked MSNBC for considering the debate “the worst thing that ever happened anywhere.” In the segment, Kenan Thompson played an Al Sharpton struggling to come up with any number of excuses for why Obama performed the way he did, positing that perhaps Romney and Obama switched bodies, or that with “no way” to know exactly how high above sea level Denver is, Obama struggled with an altitude “upwards of a million” feet above Earth. Cecily Strong took over as Rachel Maddow, who decided to look on the bright side by focusing smugly on one of Romney’s few slips of the tongue and then gloating over an unflattering frame of Romney (“Nice face, governor”)....

Obama came to the debate to bash the straw man arguments his spin has created about Romney.

When the REAL Romney shows up and not the cartoon figure the Obama press created, Obama was shocked. He believed his own spin.

Romney presented himself unfiltered to the American public and it was a shock to all who had not seen him unfiltered before.

When Romney didn't mimic the straw man arguments Obama spouts, they say he lied.

The American public was looking for a reason to vote for Romney and he provided it.

I’ve said this all along..

OBAMA will not get over 42-43% of the Popular Vote.. PERIOD. Anyone telling you otherwise is blowing sunshine up your butt.

OBama will also NOT CARRY A SINGLE STATE he did not win by 55% of the popular vote, with the exception of MN, and he will lose at LEAST a few states he won by 55% or more as well.. WI for example

I agree that Biden will get his clock cleaned by Ryan as well. This isn’t something new... the Press tried to prop up Edwards if you remember correctly and destroyed Cheney for years, and what happened when they debated? Cheney treated Edwards (rightly so) like an uninformed grammar school child. This is typical folks.. the debates and the conventions are the ONLY times the Republican candidate gets to be seen unfiltered or edited by the American people directly.... And with Conventions being too early for most of the swing voters, and carried less and less by the networks... its the DEBATES where the Republican can finally be seen. And when this happens, propped up dems are shown to be the vapuous fools they are.

Biden will do the dazzle with BS routine.

It will be a charm offensive since Biden has nothing in terms of facts or brain power of the facts. He did not last as senator by being an Obama.

Biden will fight to win PERCEPTION not the debate points.

Sorry, I’ve seen Biden and I’ve seen Ryan... Yes, Biden will try to charm, but I don’t think old grey haired gaffe machine is going to disarm Ryan.

He doesn’t have the personality or charm to pull it off.

May not be the routing of last week, but Biden winning? Don’t see it happening.

“Obama has become a bad joke to the American People.”

I think that Hussein’s sycophants are finally realizing this. Perhaps they’ll think it would be best to be on the winning side and change their wicked ways. How dumb must they feel to have hitched their wagons to Obama’s star?

In truth, I expect they’ll rally around Hussein even more, due to ideology.
