Skip to comments.Why Obama Will Lose All Three Debates
Posted on 10/08/2012 6:02:09 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
President Obama had a terrible debate last week. Supporters and opponents were shocked that he could be so off his game. They shouldn't have been. That they were indicates that they don't understand Obama's serious, likely insurmountable re-election problem.
Obama supporters and detractors expect the old Obama to show better form in the next debate. But that is not going to happen! It cannot, because Obama's critical problem is not correctable.
Obama's Real Problem
The media seemed more surprised by Obama's performance than Romney's. It was Romney who was the surprise and exposed Obama's Achilles heel. Daniel Henninger observed (my emphasis added):
... no one expected or predicted that Barack Obama could be so pushed off his game or look so flustered in a contest of articulating ideas.Obama's problem, to put it politely, is his looseness with facts. He is the quintessential "sound-bite" president. Truth for him is whatever he chooses it to be, whatever is necessary to turn things in his favor. His self-aggrandizement and arrogance, coupled with a hero-worshiping media, has enabled him to such an extent that it is possible that he no longer believes there is truth other than what he wants it to be. That is his problem, and it has been reinforced for most of his life.
Obama created his own fantasy bubble. He began by inventing history in two so-called autobiographies. Challenging anything in his self-created Alice in Wonderland world brought automatic charges of racism and other attacks from his defenders. After years of living in his bubble, one wonders whether Mr. Obama even knows objectivity or truth. This psychopathology was reinforced by admirers to the extent that Obama has made it a key tool in his political arsenal.

I'm not so sure. 0bama will have advance copies of the questions and will have polished responses to each. That's the advantage of having left moderators.
VERY well said.
abiguity which allowed the useful idiots of the electorate to project themselves as “just like obama”.
Obama is a failure and nobody wants to self identify with a failure.
Depends on the dosage. I haven’t seen any untoward side effects in people taking Nuvigil other than inability to fall asleep. It basically decreases general tiredness. You seem more awake, more alert. I suspect he’ll be on it and it will at the very least help to erase his first performance. I wonder if ANY ‘jour no-lista’ has the balls or ovaries to ask the question and find out if he took any neurological enhancement drug before the debate. Who am I kidding. Those pussies will be cheering the First Fag on to victory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOW! Love that line...I hope the Romney speach writers that lurk on FR pick up on it.
Obamas failure in the debate was the fault of the news media. Because they have shielded and protected him all during his political career, he has never had to explain anything or defend himself. He only appears on talk shows that throw him softballs. Reporters never ask him probing questions. The debate was the first time he has had to face the real world.
Ha...he can't even get his feet straight...let alone his thoughts.
Send him back to Harvard for "walking 101"
Sometimes I think that the combined IQ of a group is like resistors combined in parallel.
The more you put in parallel, the lower the IQ. And the resulting IQ is always lower than the lowest of any individual in the group.
I think you just coined a useful word. Mind if I steal it and use it shamelessly?
A typo, of course. It did come out as an illiteration, though, didn’t it?
My little fantasy of what I would like to see Romney do in the next debate is challenge Obama - ask him point blank if Obama believes he - Romney - is a liar. Ask him “Mr. President, your campaign staff and supporters have come out since the last debate and called me a liar. Do you sir think I am a liar?” If Obama stammers that some of Romney’s position is stretching the truth, Romney should ask him to be specific. Which positions? Put Obama on the defense. Again, just my little fantasy.
Just the thought of him still enrages me!
The ‘UH’s’ and the ‘Duh’s’ will never go away.
He absolutely NEEDS the teleprompter and can NOT think on his feet or talk intelligently without it.
This is where the ‘47%’question will come up...and Obama will be ready with his snarky response and part of the crowd will cheer and the press will declare him the winner on that moment...So Romney better be ready for it and have a sharp reply.
I expect the next debates to be pretty rigged (advance copy of the questions, a moderator more "in tune" with his way of operating, etc.).
A lot of good points in this article.
I think it was liberal vs conservative principles that crumbled obama.
You think the first “debate” wasn’t a setup?
With Jim Lehrer coaching Obama moment by moment?
