Obama Says Debate Prep ‘Going Great’
Wall Street Journal- Washington Wire ^ | October 14, 2012, 5:26 PM | Carol E. Lee

Posted on 10/15/2012 4:07:40 AM PDT by MuttTheHoople

Mr. Obama took a break Sunday from studying and engaging in mock sessions with his staff at a five-star waterfront resort here to deliver pizzas to one of his nearby campaign offices and make a couple phone calls to supporters, just as he did while preparing for his first debate in Henderson, Nev., two weeks ago.

He then took a seat between two women and picked up the phone. “I’m gonna do my work,” he said, adding: “Everybody’s so serious!”

Prep is going great! He’s clobbering Kerry in every round, just like last time!

I bet he had a plan to come out in gay fetish wardrobe.

Will he mimic Biden? More than likely. But I think he will play heavily on some form of guilt/sympathy card, like give socialism a working chance, just because it failed in Russia doesn’t mean it cannot be a success in America.

“guilt/sympathy card”

Don’t forget about the other card. You know, the one that starts with R.

Guilt and Sympathy card:

He'll accuse Romney of abusing a mentally challenged black man in Denver.

If he goes that route, Romney needs to school him with the unemployment statistics in each of the European countries and ask the town hall attendees if that’s the future they want for their kids.

That's fine, Barry - you just keep on doin' what you do and "prep" (LOL) for your debate - what a jackass.

We haven't had a president doing the people's work for the last 4 years; so why start now??

So .... Biden brought up gay marriage before Obozo was ready to talk about it and he had to go ahead and endorse it. Biden backed the WH into a corner by saying that “we” didn’t know about the security requests at Benghazi .... WH had to double-down on the lie ( & piss off Hildabeast) or call Biden a liar. The point of all this .... I’m just waiting for Biden to commit one more major gaffe and ‘out’ Obozo.

I noticed the scurrelous Obama campaign keeps using the word “specifics” regarding Romney and Ryan.

The only “specifics” given at all have come from Romney.

We have yet to hear any “specifics” from Obama on what he plans for 4 more years. Now, I want him to be very “specific” about his intentions. All Obama ever does is talk about his version of what Romney intends but he never talks about his own plans at all, and never offers “specifics”.

I wish the Romney camp would turn this word right back on Obama. It would be a winner and it would also shut them up.

This! Obama can’t say what he wants to do or else nobody outside that liberal townhall meeting will vote for him.

“He continues to act like a 14 year old smart-ass”

Yes, his remarks remind me of a little kid with poor grades telling mommy: “OK mom, I’m studying this time and it’s going great”.

This shouldn’t even be news. It makes him look like he has a learning disability (laziness or lacking upstairs) and needs extra loving support to prod him along.

Candy Crowley must be going to give him a mulligan on every hole he gets himself in trying to defend/explain his dismal economic and foreign policy.

This debate will be a "townhall" with CNN's Candy Crowley advocating for Obama so expect the "War on Women," 47%, "fair share," Bain Capital, tax returns, homosexual agenda and even Romney's Mormonism to appear.

It WILL be ugly for Romney. Pray he handles himself well.

Telling the world he killed Osama, he should be scared out of his wits for his own life.

If Obama doesn’t do well tomorrow it won’t be his fault. After all, he inherited a terrible performance from the previous debate.

Superficially Kerry and Romney seem similar. They are both somewhat awkward on a personal level; they are both very rich; they have both been successful politicians in Massachusetts; and they are both famous as flip-floppers.

But Romney actually made most of his money the hard way and appears to have a more forceful, quick, and logical mind than Kerry. Plus Romney actually takes debate preparation more seriously than Kerry or Obama ever will.

Wow! That's a pretty snazzy looking 5***** resort!!

Who is paying the huge bill for all this fancy "studying"... the Obama Campaign or the overburdened US taxpayers!!??

Is this pretender incapable of doing some study at the White Hut or Camp David, where the expenses are already sunk? Or, is this just another excuse to get Moochelle and Mama another 5***** vacation courtesy of the long-suffering American taxpayers or (much less likely) the well-heeled Chinese, er, I mean, Democrat donors?

But, I suppose if you think are the Emperor, you figure you might as well live like one!

By the way, isn't this a bit far for the usual Intelligence boffins to commute to present the King's Daily Intel Brief? Or is His Majesty still foregoing those for more important things?
