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.

And he was issuing orders to divisions that no longer existed.
Nuvigil's side effects include "frenzied, abnormally excited mood; hallucinating (seeing things or hearing voices that do not exist); anxiety; depression; thinking about killing or harming yourself". Oh, yes, Obama on Nuvigil in a stressful situation would potentially be FUN to watch!
remember the next debate is in NY (I think) and Gallop (I believe) will PICK the undecided voters to ask question.....as the whole debate will be questions from people.....I smell a set up here..........
One of the most important things we can do here in the Heartland is to watch and record these upcoming debates. Especially we must identify the persons asking questions in the Town Hall format. As we have seen in the past few years the Democrats are not at all shy about putting their own people in to ask embarrassing questions. We on the other hand can turn that around on them and identify any party hacks that get infiltrated and set up as “unbiased” questioners.
Basically, what you’re saying is that Obama won’t say anything intelligent, but he’ll say it a lot faster.
Thats gone now.
ZZZactly. Perceptive Post of the Day. His campaign won't blow up, but it is already doing through serious deflation.
I wish I had an old suit to sit out in my empty chair to show how Obama is an empty suit. All academic verbage and hypothicals that he wants to apply to reality because true substance means people actually have to work and save rather then have things hand by an overlord government which is how Obama came to be who and what he is.
After he loses the next two debates. Unemployment will be down to 4%.

If you elect me President I will lead us out of this death spiral by unleashing the unstoppable energy of the American Spirit. We will grow our economy and there will be more opportunity for everyone.
Mr Obama is fixated on creating a floor that no one can fall below. I believe the American dream is to live a life where there is no ceiling on how far we can rise.
Do not be prisoner of what you fear might happen. Fear is a great enemy that saps your will. Instead be an activist in the name of your own individual prosperity.
One of the greatest gifts a person can give to their family, to their community and to their nation is the gift of self reliance. By so doing you provide resources for yourself and also those in need. By being self reliant you contribute to the well being of the whole in a quiet yet powerful way.
We must unleash the power of the private sector in order to create opportunity for self reliance. Mr Obama will continue to expand the reach and cost of the public sector government bureaucracies. All well intentioned government programs with nice sounding names.
But the reality is that government can never provide the quality of life that a free man or woman acting in his/her own best interests will provide for themselves. Unless of course you hold one of those government jobs. The unspoken truth is that when it comes right down to it...government does of great job of taking care of government, but a very poor job of taking care of people.
Your choice is to be a servant of government, dependent on a government agency, or will you be an agent of your own destiny, capitalizing on the opportunities available in a free America where you can rise to any height unfettered by a domineering government class that is addicted to the fruits of your labor.
“The REAL problem is that obama is a not-very-bright puppet. His puppet-masters put his speeches on his teleprompter.
Without his teleprompter, obama is toast!!!!”
I don’t recall the 08 campaign as I have blocked that love fest out of my mind. What happened during the debates of the campaign. Was he as bad as this past debate? If so, I don’t think it will matter.
Man, talk about an opening line that Romney should start with, "Mr President, this election represents the judgement of history, and I am hear to give an accounting of what you have done..."
followed up with a truthful telling of obama's record. He would be so thrown off his game plan, that he wouldn't be able to recover.
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?
>> “You watch. He’ll be sharper, more awake, no uh’s and duh’s” <<
They’re going to replace him with his brother?
There was no ambiguity. Stupid people just ignored the facts! Everyone now sees
Obama is nothing but a charlatan because the MSM can't cover for his sorry ass!
Those that chose to be willfully blind, but know who this prick is by now are just complete idiots.
