Skip to comments.Obama's debate flop pins 'loser' tag on Kerry
Posted on 10/09/2012 5:56:42 PM PDT by pietraynor
Barack Obama was not the only loser in the first presidential debate with challenger Mitt Romney on Wednesday. Sen. John Kerry took it on the chin as well.
And, incidentally, so did the Obama lapdogs in the liberal mainstream media who have been apologizing, protecting and covering up for Obama since the day he arrived on the national political scene.
Obama, hesitant, defensive and unprepared in his 90-minute encounter with an aggressive Romney, left the stage in Denver looking as though he had just been waterboarded. And Kerry, Obama's debate coach, could not get out of town fast enough.
And who can blame him? Obama was so bad he should have spent another day as a tourist at Hoover Dam, as he did the day before the debate, and sent out Kerry to cope with the Romney tsunami.
But you couldn't find Kerry. Unlike his counterpart, Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio, who played Obama in Romney's preparatory mock debates, Kerry was not even on hand at the post-debate "spin room," where supporters meet with the media to place their spin on what just took place.

I just don’t get it, I mean, uh, Kerry to blame???
I mean , really, a vietnam War hero?
A “decorated” soldier ( albeit, decorated with a band-aid).
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA wonder where Teresa was???
LOL!!!! Toooooo funnny!!!!
Obama blows off his prep, Lurch takes the whipping.
Pretty funny that Kerry takes the blame - since you know Obama wouldn’t have listened to a thing Kerry tried to tell him, anyway.
Don’t forget Kerry’s feckless campaign manager Bob Shrum.
A couple of effetes.
This is sweet, Kerry is paying a big price for this debacle, and this late in his career, this will be his last big public, image making role.
I guess, with the lovely Terrayza at hand, poor Jon Carry just never developed the technique of a master debater
As if Kerry wasn’t a loser before the debate? LOL!
The loser John Kerry, but then I repeat myself.
This is becoming mental.
I think _bama needs a nice longggg rest and I for one am going to do whatever I can to see he gets it.
Thats how much I care.
Someday, Obama will actually take responsibility for something.
In a way, blaming Kerry, though, is kind of deserved. Kerry is such a jerk and a waste of space that he deserves to be thrown undr the bus.
HUH-HUH-HUH HUH-HUH-HUH HUH-HUH-HUH
Holy cow, Obama swift boats Kerry.
Yeah, he's been there for decades.
I just dont get it, I mean, uh, Kerry to blame???
I mean , really, a vietnam War hero?
Once again old horse face “ absent from duty”
Blah blah blah...
Obama acts like he doesn’t care - like he doesn’t even need to be convincing or have the facts.
Just needs to cheerlead the zombies.
As he confided to Russian Medvedev, it’s his last election.
No fan of Kerry but... to blame him.. really??
The problem for Obama is ... he’s trying to defend the indefensible, and the debate requires it without the “media’s” cloak of protection. Obama’s policies suck across the board and the best debate sparring partner in the world won’t save him.
Is that Bill Frist ? I’ve been wondering where he went.
Failure after failure and everyone gets blamed but Oblamer.
