Obama: 'I was just too polite'

~~SNIP~~

"I mean, you know, the debate, I think it’s fair to say I was just too polite, because, you know, it’s hard to sometimes just keep on saying, 'And what you’re saying isn’t true,'" he told Tom Joyner in an interview Tuesday. "It gets repetitive. But, you know, the good news is, is that’s just the first one... And, you know, I think it’s fair to say that we will see a little more activity at the next one."

~~SNIP~~

"Yeah, I understand, but you know, what happens, though, is that when people lose one game, you know, this is a long haul," Obama replied.

~~SNIP~~

"You know, across the board these are issues that matter to people day

You can tell how polite he is in his ads filled with lies and half truths.

Obama is so inept that he doesn't know when to stfu.

It wasn't that long ago that the community organizer was telling his minions to get in the oppositions' faces.

I was in a week long program to help me be a better trial lawyer. We had to give our presentations in front of a mix of teachers and students who slammed a book on the table if I said “you know” or “ah” or anything else except what needed to be said. It really worked. Scarred me for life.

It’s easy to be “polite” when you don’t know what the heck the answer is, genius.

If Obama does end up losing the election, this debate will eat at him for the rest of his life.

Truly, I believe he needs to stop being so polite. That’s his whole problem. //sarcasm off// That explanation is as dumb as his idea after the midterm losses that he’d not talked often enough to the American people.

Obama is going to lose the next two debates.

This whole “Romney was telling soooo many lies” BS is to try to shield him from his fanboys who are now starting to see how dim this guy really is.

Why doesn’t he tell is what these supposed lies were if they were so obvious?

This is why I want to reach through the radio and strangle Sean Hannity when I listen to his show - Every other word out of his mouth is "YOUKNOW"

Caroline Kennedy

Hillary Clinton

Barack Obama

The absolute worst offenders.

Exactly. Yeah Obama always has a problem with being too polite. Like right after his election when he gave the finger to the Republicans in a budget meeting and told McCain basically “I won deal with it”.

The more he tries to explain his defeat the weaker he sounds. I learned as an athlete when you lose a game the best way to put it behind you is first to accept the reality that you failed and the other person was better. Making excuses or taking shots at the guy who beat you is pathetic.

Just man up and quietly prepare better next time.

Another day another excuse, pathetic. He is going to overcompensate in the next debate and it will be worse, even with the moderator and the msm kneepadding for him.

We want that smug, rude, cocky, in-your-face, racially inflammatory, thoroughly unlikeable Alinksy version of Barack on TV next week!

Wouldn’t it be smarter to stop making excuses and just let it rest? The guy’s narcissism won’t let him leave it alone.

It's weird, Obama is still reminding everyone of his blowout last week. For someone who spends his days watching ESPN, where this years NFL meme is about having a quarterback with a "short memory" and (after a loss)moving on to preparation for next Sunday's opponent, I really wonder if Obama is screwed up on dope or bad whiskey.

Seriously, No. One. Can. Be. This. Stupid. Distract us with Big Bird? 23 million Americans are out of work and we're going to vote for him because of a fictious Bird? Obama! Its some guy in a yellow chicken suit! It's NOT REAL!!!

You should have grown up with my mother. Oy Veh! It’s probably a miracle I talk to anyone. I’m 53 and she’ll still correct my grammar mistakes. Thankfully, we live on opposite coasts.

The first excuse was he didn’t want to do his homework because it was such a drag. Then, it was he was tired from the 4 year campaign. Then, it was the altitude. Now, it’s because he’s just too nice. Tomorrow, it’ll be because he wore the wrong color panties. Next week, it’ll be back to Bush’s fault.
