- 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.
