If by “polite” he means “clueless and unprepared,” then yes.

Oh, great. Remove the "polite" from O'bama.

THAT's the ticket.

I predicted this last week: Obama, having had so much criticism for not being aggressive enough and "too nice," will be angry, aggressive, breathing fire . . . in a foreign policy debate, where people want to see a calm, resolve, sober approach. If I didn't know better I'd say Romney set him up with a body blow for the haymaker.

Worse for Zero, this is a townhall where people are not going to want an angry aggressive person talking to them.

I wonder if this means we are about to be treated to the return of the “middle” finger approach to dissing the people he is debating.

” “You have a seven-game series, we’re up two zero and we lose one,” he explained. “

The President has twice the work cut out for him after the first debate.

He has to remove the stink of the first debate, and demonstrate competence on this next debate’s topic: FOREIGN POLICY.

Good luck with that.

Implication:

Romney was impolite.

Always accuse your enemy of what you do yourself.

Good luck with that, Mr. President. I’m sure “activity” will be easier than real preparation, and that’s the important thing, right?

I get the feeling that the President is revving up to make a bigger ass of himself at next week’s debate than he did at last weeks debate.

By my count this is the fourth version of the excuse.

Romney bullied Leher

Romney had notes .

Romney lied so stupendously that zero was dumbfounded

zero is just too nice.

“Tom Joyner Morning Show,” is a “black” drve-time program.

I remember having to hear it one morning while they did their “news” segment.

Just a bunch of left-wing fools giving some of the most moronic commentary to the events of the day. Usually when the news story got to something outside the country, they were bat$hit clueless as to what the story was about.

Perfect venue for O.

OK, then, what was game one and two?

Face it, this was game one - and the first game he’s ever played as president, and he got exposed.

The Dems are especially fond this year of setting up straw men.

Here, they set up two straw games.

We’ve got millions of people who’ve got health care now because of our health care bill and they won’t have it if Mitt Romney is elected president.
He actually things obamacare is a net electoral plus for him.

Yes. I was telling folks last week that Obama supporters what him to hit back harder. What that (should) mean is that he pummels Romney with more and “better” facts. What I maintain is that Obama doesn’t have the ability to do that because his policies suck (can use those) and his “facts” are lies that Romney will obliterate.

So the only “harder” hits Zero has is to speak with an angry, louder voice. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let him do that. If he does, he will come across as an angry bully with no substance...which is all he really is.

In short, he only has two choices, wimp out again, or play to his true angry empty self. He can NOT win with substance because he has none. Period.

But that lib pundit said last week that Obama’s debate handicap is he can’t come across as too forceful or else he’d be seen as “an angry black man” by those redneck white racists in the south & midwest. /s

Some of us been saying this for a while...keep the pressure on him and he will blow and when he does, his true colors will come out: a bully in an empty suit yelling from a band box. Just need someone to ask the right question in the right mannor next week, something like, you told us you were going to cut the deficit in half yet the record shows it went the other way, 4 years in a row. Were you misleading us then or now? That would light the fuse. Next up, you said the only war we should have been involved in was Afghanistan, well, you were forced to expand it and now you are planning to leave with a date specific. Why.
BOOM. You said if you got your stimules, the unemployment would go down to under 6%, why has it not and why can I not find a job at my former level of income. Super NOVA.

Too polite???

Too evil (fascist/socialist views), Too unprepared, Too arrogant, too feminine.

It’s great that Obutthole now thinks he needs to be LESS “polite” because that means he’ll unleash his inner meanness in the next debate (we all know it’s lurking there, ready to erupt).

His meanness will backfire on him when the masses see the guy who used to deliver windy speeches full of platitudes — is really a mean, insecure S.O.B.

Is this part of his ego-centric personality? Why does he continue to yammer on about the debate, giving numerous excuses about his dismal performance? Every single pundit I’ve seen has said he and his team simply should have said something like, “it wasn’t my best night - but wait until the next debate!”

The weather, the altitude, the moderator, the ‘lies’ - whatever! Accept responsibility for a poor performance and move on!

First, it was revealed how unintelligent he is.
Now, it’s time to reveal how petulant, mean, and angry he is.

How was he up 2 games to Zero? This was the first game, you putz!! If this is a seven-game series, the series is:

OBAMA - 0
