Obama 'believed he had BEATEN Romney' in Denver debate - after ignoring advice of top aides....
dailymail.co.uk ^ | 10/9/2012 | Toby Harnden

Posted on 10/09/2012 11:18:30 AM PDT by TBBT

- Obama believes he'd got the better of Romney as he walked off stage to the dismay of his aides, according to a Democrat close to the campaign - The President failed to prepare properly, opting instead to visit the Hoover Dam the day before the showdown - Democrat claims he was so disdainful of Romney that he didn't think he needed to even engage with him - Had one-liners on 47% prepared but chose not to use them

watching his debate against Mitt Romney already knew it had been a disaster for him.

But what nobody knew, until now, was that Obama believed he had actually won.

In an extraordinary insight into the events leading up to the 90 minute showdown which changed the face of the election, a Democrat close to the Obama campaign today reveals that the President also did not take his debate preparation seriously, ignored the advice of senior aides and ignored one-liners that had been prepared to wound Romney.

Delusional. OK Now I am thinking that like Chavez, Obama will think he has won the election even after he loses in a landslide.

I think he has delusions of minimal adequacy.

Yeah, the most brilliant man that has ever lived or ever will live. He doesn’t even have a feel for politics once in power.

Unless he’s got an ace up his sleeve (and given his imagined brilliance and his throwing everything but the kitchen sink with no result, I doubt it), he will be shocked at the level of vehemence with which the people of the United States revoke and pass to another, the executive power granted him.

Most arrogant SOB on the face of the earth! Glad he got his clock cleaned.

Did he think Romney would suck up to him and not challenge his woeful record like the MSM? For someone who is supposed to be the “smartest” man in America, he is a fool and proved it to nearly the whole country last week.

If he thought he was ahead he is stupider than I thought he was..I hope he keeps thinking that and preforms just like he did in Colorado when he debates Romney again.. IT doesn’t matter his ignorant followers will vote for him if he murdered someone and they saw him do it..

Obama has a giant ego, he really believes that everyone bends over and kisses his ass..his large ego isn’t all his fault though, this is what happens when you have 90 percent of the media saying how wonderful you are and how you are the best thing since sliced bread. Obama answers to NO ONE in the media because he knows they all adore him..just you watch, if it looks like Obama’s goose is cooked a few days before the election the media will abandon him. The media adores him, but they adore themselves more

Worse than that. He seemed to say at various points that there were 57... or 58... or 59. (I lost track.)

If the guy is going to be wrong, at least he could be consistent. :)

Two comments:

1. Once again, Americans have to get the real news from the Daily Mail. Stories not acceptable to be published in Pravda...I mean, the American media.

2. If 0bama really believed he won that debate, he really doesn’t have any sort of contact with reality.

This matches my own analysis of Obama.

He is an average intellect, and average speaker, who has ben convinced of his own greatness since he was young, due mainly to the adulation and willingness of others to help him advance.

Obama is actually greatly burdened by both his high self-estimation and his left-wing fantasies, to which he clings, despite the fact they never work out in reality.

It is impossible for Obama to prepare for a debate. In order to prepare one has to be challenged during the preparation sessions. This guy’s ego can’t stand it, not one bit, not even in practice. NOBODY, NOBODY dares to question the greatness of his majesty lord Obama, not even his own people in a practice session for a debate.

Oh, and I agree with Obama, he did win the debates. He should just relax and take it easy. Go to the beach, play some golf. No need at all Oh Great and Magnificent Obama to prepare for the next debate.

Vice President Joe Biden faces Representative Paul Ryan, the Republican vice-presidential nominee, in a debate in Danville, Kentucky on Thursday. It will be the only time the two men - one of who was born in 1942, the other in 1970 - will debate.

Biden, 69, is vastly more experienced that the 42-year-old Ryan. The Obama campaign is counting on him to vigorously attack the Romney-Ryan ticket in a way that the President did not.

Should be good.

Same delusional bum that picked those green energy companies for investment. As Romney’s friend said, he doesn’t just pick winners and losers, he picks the losers. Not surprising he picked himself as the winner, it goes right along.

He believes and has lived the entitlement crap that he preaches. That attitude got him where he is today and anyone that says diffrently must be a racist. I hope it helps him circle the drain on the next go around with mittens.

This is what really scares me.

What happens on November 7th? Does he lose that last tenuous grasp? Does he "take revenge on America" and starting issuing Executive Orders meant to destroy us without any pretense of what's good for us?

“He believes there are 59 states so what else is new..”

Actually, when he was campaigning in Oregon in 2008 he told the crowd he had been to 57 states and had one more to go.

So you owe him an apology, Max. He knew there are only 58 states (since Canada, the 59th state, had already been spun off).

He probably does believe this. And why not? In fact, it remains to be seen if he’s wrong or not. I think its going to be a very, very close race and there will be a lot of voter fraud. Further, a lot of women who he may have momentarily lost will come back and vote for him. I still think its Obama’s election to lose.

I love when Biden took 11 minutes to ask Sam Alito a single question during Alito’s confirmation hearings, and Alito answered-—in six words.

Joe is a moron, plain and simple.

Very simple.

Yes, he thought Romney would be the same kind of pushover that McCain was. In fact, he thinks all white, male GOPers are easy to roll. Why wouldn't he, dealing with Boehner and McConnel. Obama figured he could do his passive/aggressive insult shtick just as he did with McCain in the debates and in the stimulus meetings.

Who still believes that Americans root for the underdog?

Might Obama (or his media morons), position himself as the ‘underdog’ for the sympathy vote - without sacrificing the perception that he is strong and resilient?

How could zero have possibly thought he won that with fact after fact thrown in his face - many of which he couldn’t even respond to? I’m not sure I buy this. His whole demeanor showed resignation, defeat, capitulation. I actually thought he recognized that Mitt is superior.

I know what they’re saying but I also know what I saw. Zero must look the same when Valerie and Michelle yell at him. Some world leader he is.

This can be a Romney ad: Do you want a president who considers the advice of his advisors, or one who ignores it?

Obama also believes, just like he said many yrs ago and was caught on tape saying so, that if you give enough free stuff to people, they will vote the way you tell them to vote..which is true..that is why Romney was right about the 47 percent..that is the number Obama is stuck on because that is the percentage of people who sit at home waiting for their Govt goodies to arrive
