- 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.

Unless he is insane ... and therein lies the rub...
Actually, I think Oblahblah thought that smirking and looking down was all he needed to do to “win”. It must of been a hell of a surprise to him when the MSM didn’t report on his ingenious debate strategy.
It will be too late for to have an affect. Will only embarass himself further. I hope he tries it.
My favorite Christmas movie of all time is “A wish for wings that work” with Opus the penguin, etc. In the end some birds grab him and lift him up and he is “flying”, and Opus is all excited “hey guys - I’m flying - I’m REALLY flying!!”
After the closing credits one of the characters appears and says “Don’t get cocky”.
Exactly. There was some hidden intelligent meaning there. No need to make him look stupid. -er.
One liners in a debate, yeah, that will work! Kerry was his sparring partner. One liners because he can’t remember anything else.
self ping for later read
He can't win a debate on his own. Only the enemedia can help him.
I agree. Even the things he did say wasn’t relevant and some was simply mishmash - it made no sense. I got confirmation of that with the after reports w/Rudy said the same - he couldn’t follow him.
What gets me is that this STILL is the narrative that Obama only lost on STYLE,not substance.
He got thrashed on BOTH style and substance. This is covering up the reality that the “47 %” thing wouldn’t make one bit of difference.
It is like claiming that Custer lost because he wore the wrong hat.
I hope he tries it with Ryan.
Who gave it to him?
Bingo. Obama must be doing blow, pot , chooms, smoking like a chimney, drinking booze and a wreck.
Yes. Worse, he will give away whatever nuclear secrets that he can. I've been expecting it for four years.
What shocked him is the MSM reported he lost. He was expecting them to sing his praises. And if the MSM said he’d won, the idiotic liberal voters would have believed it.
I am not sure about that. Obama is narcissistic. His mental illness is furthered along by the press touting his grandeur.
There is an interesting post over on HIllbuzz from someone who has had to deal with a narcissist. It is in reference to the theory that Obama concocted the disaster of a scheme over in Libya.
You can’t judge Obama by your standards. You have to use the standards of someone who is mentally ill.
I think it is possible that he believed he won. He can do no wrong. There is no Plan B because , of course, Plan A will work.
Must be primo quality stuff you’ve been smoking!
How did this guy ever get to be “likeable”? He’s a total douche.
yes, Obama is the poster boy for the Dunning-Krueger effect
I actually want to see Mitt laugh out loud at one of Obama's over zealous jabs. It would be a moment for the ages, and would deeply shame Obama in front of his Hopeful minions.
OBAMA: "My opponent wants to throw Big Bird into the street."
ROMNEY: "Oh, you mean the 1%er millionaire on government assistance? LOL!"
“He says he has been to 57, one to go and two his staff wouldn’t let him go to. Total = 60 states. He increased the number of states by 20%.”
O.K., I’ll grant you Alaska to bump it up to 59, but do we really have to count Hawaii?
As Dennis Miller said “He looked very mayorial”
If there was an 0bama Greatness Award . 0bama would award the first one to himself.
Oh, boy! First 0bama throws Hawaii under the bus by blaming his laziness on growing up there and now you want to throw it off the island. (see what I did there?) I’m going to start to feel sorry for Hawaii if this keeps up. (right up until the snow starts flying here in CO)
“I agree, if he looses I sure don’t believe he will go away quietly. It’s obvious he’s thin skinned and a poor sport.”
This brings up a question I have. How did President Carter behave when he lost? I was way to you, so I have no idea. The last President to lose an election was President George H.W. Bush and from what I can tell he seemed to deal with it in a classy manner.
"The Anosognosics Dilemma: Somethings Wrong but Youll Never Know What It Is (Part 1)"
LOL aka The 0bama Syndrome!
I don’t recall how Carter acted when he lost...just went back to Georgia quietly is my impression but Gore could be a good comparison for BO. Gore lost his mind.
“I dont recall how Carter acted when he lost...just went back to Georgia quietly is my impression but Gore could be a good comparison for BO. Gore lost his mind.”
I think that your right. Gore would be a great way to predict obamas post election behavior. Except, I think he may make us all forget about Gore.
“get out of my house.”
suu - WEEEET !!!
Anyone thinking there could be rioting around some U.S cities if Obumpo loses OR wins??? (bite my tongue)
Be prepared - - -
Prominent Members of Chicago Black Community: Those closest to Obama know there’s no 2nd term
And Axlerod is offering the zingers to Biden to use...should be pretty funny.
Obama is bat shit crazy, pathologically narcissistic and absolutely coming apart at the seams over this debate loss.
Though the media will never allow it to happen, if he were to lose a second debate, there is no doubt that he would have a full blown meltdown.
This is finally entertaining!
when Romney trounces Zero in debate #2, maybe he will claim it’s “only a flesh wound” like Monty Python’s black knight...
More proof that it may take more than a crowbar to dislodge this turd from the WH on January 20th.
I bet he still thinks he won and, all the analysis is wrong.
I definately think that there will be. Yesterday on Wilkow, he had someone, he discussed his personal theory how he purposely incited the riots in Middle East by pointing out that video to try to cover for his failures. His theory was, that this was a typicaly community organizer (agitator) move but on a grandiose scale.
Thanks for sharing that info--- its like an informative education sometimes here on FR. It seems a bit indirectly similar in definition to the 'Peter Principle' except the one doing the self- promoting is the narcissist egoist individual via falsely rational self delusions.
It’s called narcissistic personality disorder.
if his perception is that distorted, we don’t need him running the US!
<He has no actual experience in financial management, business management, tax planning, consulting or any other experience besides community organizing on the streets of Chicago.
Everything you said, and one further - he is not in control of day to day WH activity and policy. I’m not saying there’s some puppet master running everything, but that he pays so little attention, and is so little in control of what’s going on, that he can’t speak from his heart and mind.
What kind of president can’t speak about his own policies without a teleprompter? Who can’t speak about his own belief system? Why couldn’t he say ‘I did this, because I believe X, and my policies are X’?
The man is an empty suit.
