Optimal Binders Full of Fail ^ | October 21, 2012 | Derek Hunter

Progressives are not having a good week.

After a debate “victory” for President Obama, which amounted to simply being caffeinated because the bar was set so low after the first debate, his Libya lies are still haunting him. Yes, moderator Candy Crowley saved his bacon in the moment, but she ended up costing him by forcing a reluctant media to continue to cover the story. He may have won the night, but he lost the week because of it.

Had the president simply taken responsibility for his administration’s security failures, apologized, said it would haunt him and shape his actions from that moment forward to ensure it never happened again, this scandal would be done. But narcissists don’t man-up because they can’t admit they’ve made mistakes.

Instead, we had Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accept responsibility the day before the debate, which forced the man in charge to. Thus, five weeks after the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, five weeks after lying about denying repeated pleas for more security, five weeks after muddying blame by demonizing an innocent American who made a video – with nowhere else to go and no way to continue to hide behind Hillary’s pantsuit – the president finally took responsibility. Then he lied about having called it a terrorist attack.

That was the story after the debate. So whatever victory he had that night was wiped away by the reality of failed leadership and his callously calling the murder of 4 Americans “not optimal.”

Even debate night, as his media allies did their touchdown dance, polls showed Mitt Romney destroyed the president on every issue.

CNN’s snap poll had Obama with a 46 percent to 39 percent advantage but found people supported Romney’s answers on the issues they cared about most:

On the economy it was Romney, 58-40.
On health care, it was Romney, 49-46.
On taxes, Romney, 51-44.
On the deficit, Romney, 59-36.

If that’s what a debate victory looks like for Obama, may he win them all.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, to build on his “win,” the president and his allies set about trying to mock Romney for this “binders of women” comment. And it backfired.

Democrats must think women are stupid enough to think Romney actively seeking out qualified women through collecting three-ring binders of resumes means he’s a sexist. Especially when the Obama administration pays women 18 percent less than men.

But progressives seem to think women can be bought off like a puppy, with free birth control pills as milk bones. The mentality that all you need to do is feed women a can of contraception kibble and they’ll be loyal is the real war on women.

Sandra Flukes of the world aside, most women would like a job and the ability to buy not only their own contraception, but whatever else they want. But progressives see Americans, particularly women and minorities, as special needs children being bullied on the schoolyard of life. They have no faith in the individual’s ability to succeed, to thrive.

But people aspire, women aspire. No amount of handouts can suffocate human nature in everyone.

As the week continued, the desperation grew.

The week of failure culminated in the president reciting the cheesy accusation Mitt Romney suffers from “Romnesia” – the inability to remember past positions. This from the man who promised to cut the deficit in half his first term, who hasn’t signed a budget in more than three years, who called adding $4 trillion to the national debt in eight years “unpatriotic” … then racked up nearly $6 trillion in four years; who promised unemployment at 5.3 percent and delivered 43 straight months of 8 percent or higher. Perhaps he’s suffering from “Obamnesia”?

Considering his campaign got this childish theme from a homophobic leftist who calls Republicans “traitors,” President “New Tone” not only thinks women are stupid, he hopes everyone is.

Just when you thought progressives couldn’t get any dumber – enter MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell.

Mitt Romney’s son, Tagg, was asked how he feels when he hears the president call his father a liar. Tagg had the natural reaction of anyone who loves their father and said he’d like to hit him, but that he’s not going to because that’s how politics is.

O’Donnell, a child of privilege who attended an exclusive private school, then Harvard, put on his best fake Boston accent to challenge Tagg to a fight. It was always clear O’Donnell was a waste of human flesh with desperation for attention and relevance wrapped around him like flies around a horse’s ass. Now it’s clear he’s a cowardly creature comprised of what drops uncontrollably out of the place those flies circle.

Maybe O’Donnell didn’t love his father, and maybe his children don’t love him the way normal people love their families (and who could blame them?), but this was a new level of pathetic even for him.

But just like “binders” and “Romnesia,” desperate times inspire desperate measures.

President Obama, Lawrence O’Donnell and their progressive brethren have nothing to offer and bring nothing to the table but an inability to learn from their failures. They read their own press releases and believe them. They also write them first.

President Obama could have avoided his current situation by simply not being an epic failure as president, but O’Donnell simply isn’t bright enough to have avoided his fate. Let’s hope more voters than not, particularly in swing states such as Ohio, see through this fog of feces from the left and vote against a life of servitude to government.

As the election draws closer, progressive’s lies will grow more desperate. They can’t defend the president’s record, which is why he doesn’t even try; they can’t offer a positive agenda for the future, which is why the president hasn’t even bothered. All they have are childish slogans and pranks that would make junior high school students shake their heads.

The last true thing President Obama said may have been in 2008 when he said, “[I]f you don't have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.” When the “hope” has changed and your word is deemed worthless, it’s no longer “optimal” to do anything but smear.

This past Friday evening, my wife asked me to drop by a store while we were out. Mark Levin was on at the time so I stayed in the truck. He was going on about how stupid the Romnesia quip was and then started to retort by calling the pResident “Obamarrhea”.

Great article. This point of how shallow and bankrupt the liberals are on what's important is highlighted on this clip from Morning Joe (Poll-Panicky Mika Fights With Producer To Lead With 'Binder-Gate'.

0 has lost even Morning Joe and Mark Halperin due to the pathetic nature of what his campaign is about ... Big Bird, free contraception for Flukes and binders?!

Ridiculous. This is all 0 has to talk about?! An act of Desperation. EPIC FAIL!

There millions of women in the USA who are not much different from me.

I am tired of being portrayed as a helpless female who cannot run her own life, pay her own bills & make her own decisions and then pay for them herself. I am incensed by such an attitude-especially from a person who is supposed to be the President of this country! I don’t think I am alone.

I was on the honor roll in high school—and I did that myself, Mr Obama. You were not even born yet!! I did the studying and I took the tests. In those days, we were NOT ‘graded on the curve’, as you most likely were—but then MY grades are available to anyone who wants to see them & yours are frozen, so we will never know, will we?? We were graded on the 100 % correct method.

I worked at whatever jobs I could find, changing locations to get anything better which offered more chance for advancement & better pay. I did that, Not you, Mr Obama.

I bought my first car in 1957—a 1957 Pontiac. Only 4 months old, but fellow worker got drafted and I bought his car. The payments came out of my weekly paycheck at Kroger. I did that, not you Mr Obama.

I moved to another state after a divorce (another epic fail by a male) and found work, got an apartment & bought the ONLY new car I have ever owned. I eventually sold that car to a person in Sweden who restored it. It was still running and had just short of 445,000 miles on it. I did that, not you, Mr Obama.

I bought my first house when I was 26 years old. I had a very small inheritance buyout of my mother’s estate-—a grand total of $5000-—and I bought my first house. I did that, not you, Mr Obama.

I went to a community college to study accounting at NIGHT after working 5-6 days a week in an office job. I took all the accounting classes offered & my grade average was 4.0. Cannot get any higher than that. Those grade are also available—not frozen! I put my social life on hold for over 4 years. I did that, not you, Mr Obama.

I financially supported my Father in the last 8-9 years of his life. He was trying to live on $253 a month Soc Sec. I bought his heat, lawnmower, other necessities and paid his property taxes. You were barely 19 years old when he passed away. I did that, not you, Mr Obama.

I bought my 2nd house when I was 49 years old. I rented it out for a few years & then I moved into it myself, selling the 1st house. I did that, not you, Mr Obama.

In the meantime, I got involved in a sport called endurance horse riding. I was the RESERVE NATIONAL CHAMPION one year & I drove the truck-trailer-horse to events and rode those miles myself. At that time, I was totally self-employed and had over 15 bookkeeping clients. I did that, not you, Mr Obama.

I bought my 3rd house in 2005 and sold the 2nd house & downsized. I paid for the new house entirely. I live on Soc Sec and I pay my own bills & still make my own decisions at an age which exceeds 70. I am still able to do that. I did that move without your help, either, Mr Obama.

I paid for my own ‘female’ needs during my whole life. I didn’t ask or demand free birth control pills or free abortionsor free Tampons or free Kotex. And by the way—Birth Control doesn’t cost anywhere near $3000 a year, so don’t believe Sandra Fluke!! I didn’t ask for food stamps. Or Section 8 housing. Or free legal & medical aid. Or free school lunches.

I am pretty sure that I am not an anomoly in the female population of the USA. I did what I needed to do to take care of myself. I was self employed at the age of 39 and still am. Your favorite sons—the UNIONS—made me sure I would not live under their dictates until I died. They were liars, just like you, Mr Obama.

I am pretty sure there are lots of women here on FR and all over the country whose story isn’t much different than mine.

We are certainly tired of being told how stupid & helpless we are and that only YOU and your corrupt Federal government can take care of us properly!!

I say—NOT ON YOUR LIFE, Mr Obma.

Go back to Kenya or Indonesia and leave us alone!!
