Skip to comments.Obama as George Costanza: Behind the scenes of Obama’s debate recovery
Posted on 10/09/2012 5:30:38 AM PDT by TigerClaws
A recent Obama rally in the battleground state of Colorado turned into something of a Seinfeldian air. Not because it was about nothing, it wasn't. But because the president responded to attacks from challenger Mitt Romney in a way he had not done during Wednesday's debate -- when 67 million Americans were watching.
On that night, Romney told the president, "You said you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas. Look, I've been in business for 25 years. I have no idea what you're talking about. I maybe need to get a new accountant."
For all the talking by the Obama campaign about Romney's taxes and off shore accounts, the president didn't say anything. Not a thing! Until 14 hours later.

Can’t stands ya!! How fitting!
And we all know what an intelligent, selfless, and hard-working person George Costanza was.
obama didn’t say anything for 14 hours?
Of course not, he never had a teleprompter during the debate where the real obama is filtered out. He cannot think outside of his marxist America hating box, so if he would have said anything it would have made matters worse for him.
Hey Barky, some store is on the phone, they say they want you back..............
Nor did he challenge the truth of Romney’s assertion. He made an ignorant joke, but he cited no ‘law’ or statute in the tax code to back up his own statement. So where is it? Maybe it’s not really there?
The analogy in this story fits perfectly... even the ending, which should have included with "... and Mitt Romney retorts, 'That should come as no surprise. YOU'RE their all-time best seller.!"
From the comments section:
“romneys first act is to appoint obama as ambassador to libya”
The analogy in this story fits perfectly... even the ending, which should have included "... and Mitt Romney retorts, 'That should come as no surprise. YOU'RE their all-time best seller.!"
the jerk store ran out of jerks, love it
That is my point also. If there is such a law he had 14 hrs to find it and quote it in that speech——he didn’t.
He intimated that Romney was a jerk, when does a president call his opponent a jerk?
He called Romney Big Bird. I will take Big Bird over Urkle any day.
The second presidential debate will be in "town meeting" format. They will do what they need to do to ensure that all Obama's questions are from shills, where the answers will be in Obama's notes, while all Romney questions will be "gotcha" questions.
Yep. There’s tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. There is a business expense of moving - overseas or to Chicago.
I didn’t see much factchecker activity on that boner. And I bet dimes to donuts Obama is still using it.
I will go with Romney on this one. Yes, there may be various tax credits or deductions you may receive doing business overseas to avoid double taxation--much of it due to reciprocity with other nations--but I doubt there is any incentive to relocate overseas apart from the lower labor costs and regulatory burden.
The point is that instead of the US trying to penalize US and multinationals from relocating to overseas locations, we should be trying to create a welcoming business climate that attracts businesses here. Millions of Americans are being employed by foreign firms. Hell, the Italians bought Chrysler. Obama is an idiot.
It’s not you Barry, it’s us.
Next thing you know he is going to tell us that was Art Vandelay at the debate not Barak Obama.
Does this mean Obama takes naps under the desk in the Oval Office?
A: I am more concerned with the Mid East policy of the unknown person who has gained control of both the Presidency and the Media is to unite the moon worshiping inhabitants under the banner of the Muslim Brotherhood which was spawned eighty years ago with the help and approval of Adolph Hitler.
Obama is a fraud and is the enemy of the Constitution and plans to make all Americans either subservient to his evil god or dead. Either way it does not matter to scum such as this impostor that now threatens all that is good and decent in the world.
The current regime has declared war on freedom, on free enterprise, and on freedom of thoughts and expression. The only thing that Obama and his evil minions, and I do not exclude the moderator, have accomplished in the last few years is to prove that Freedom is fragile.
WE THE PEOPLE must unite to stop this vile creature from dowsing the last lamp of freedom on the planet.
This is the moment in history, that YOU decide the fate of your children and grandchildren.
America has two centuries of being an exceptional role model of freedom and advancement of all that is good and decent, because when the time of defending our inalienable rights from attack, our ancestors have stood shoulder to shoulder to squash the enemy of good. The enemy of justice. The enemy of opportunity. The enemy of freedom.
My fellow Americans, now is the time to stand up and be counted.
The time is NOW to throw out this regime and to right the wrongs of their demented plans.
It's really "Teleprompter Wit". That's wit someone who is dumber than a box of rocks gains as he reads a teleprompter.
The “o” is George with the Pensky file. He sits at his desk all day long with the Pensky file but has no idea what’s in it and how to analyse it. The “o” sits in the oval office or golf course scared to death that someone will get by his layers of protection and ask him a question of substance. Hopefully the same thing will happen to “o”...his boss came back to the office and gave him the boot.
"Is this man really the President of the United States?"
And Tapper gives the answer:
"No, he just plays one on TV!"
Hey, Obama, the jerk store called and their out of YOU!
It’s never lupus.
Jerry: ‘The ocean called, they’re running outta shrimp’?
George: Yeah, yeah, yeah. But then, I said to him, ‘Oh yeah? Well, the jerk store called, and they’re running outta you.’
Jerry: (Smiling) Really? That’s great. You said that to him?
George: (Confessing) Well, actually, I thought it up on the way over here.
Jerry: Oh. That’s not quite the same.
