full title....Obama finally gets in his witty replies to Romney - 48 hours late. Wonder if the TWO teleprompters helped?

Speaking at an event in Fairfax, Virginia, a relaxed and confident President Barack Obama had plenty of witty retorts and quotable sound bites to aim at his challenger Mitt Romney.

The problem was that they came a day and a half after he had been demolished by Romney during the first presidential debate in Denver and were scripted and delivered with the aid of a pair of teleprompters flanking the stage.

‘Now, my opponent, you know, has been trying to do a two-step and reposition and got an extreme makeover,’ Obama, speaking against a backdrop of 150 women of shapes sizes and ethnicities gathered on a stage at George Mason University, said to chuckles.

Hey Tony.

Don't confuse witty with smarmy.

It is RACIST to not allow Ubama to use a TelePrompTer during the debates.

My dear wife, born in Germany, tells me that there is a phrase “The Ghost on the Stairs”.

After an evening of back-and-forthing with your friends, as you drag yourself up to bed, you think of all of those witty rejoinders you should have said.... but, too late.

I hope every “female” behind him ends up unemployed and broke.

Just seeing them makes me physically ill knowing that my vote goes up against people that stupid.

“‘Now, my opponent, you know, has been trying to do a two-step and reposition and got an extreme makeover,’”

And by the way, I dont even know how this was even witty. It is barely coherent.

Just the other night I wanted to say something regarding what a person at the dinner table said. But after only about three sentences from other people the topic was in the rear-view mirror. I kept my mouth shut. I learned that as a child after being ridiculed by older kids.

Still see it in very young kids today - which is okay for a child, sort of cute even. Where they want to join in the conversation but just don’t have it all together quickly in order to respond in an adult way. Hmmm.

We should be careful here, folks...

All it will take is for one doctor to declare that Barack Obama is a FUNCTIONING RETARD, and Holder’s D.O.J. can order the Presidential Debate Commission to provide Obama with a teleprompter, in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act!!

Reminds me of the blonde who goes to a dinner party. The party’s over so she goes home.
She undresses & goes to bed, thinks things over for a while then goes to sleep.
At 4:30 in the morning, she sits up in bed and laughs at the joke she heard at the dinner party.

The teleprompter techs are the hardest working employees at the White House - and now they have to type phonetically, so dumbass will say ‘Marine Core’ instead of saying ‘Marine Corpse’ it’s unbefreakinlievable!

The teleprompter should just run for president.

It really does not need this puny runt Obama to assist it.

Sounds like my Mother-in-law. Yes, she was a blond.

They left out the rest of the remarks. Here’s the remainder of the transcript:

“And to Joey Jones, who called me a doodyhead back in second grade, let me just say, I know you are, but what am I?”

“Trickle down government” was the quotable quote of the day and succinctly describes Obama’s four years to a T. Unfortunately it was said by a Republican candidate so it will not be repeated ad nauseum in the MSM as it would have had it been delivered by a Dem candidate.

It’s time for that picture of Zero using teleprompters to address an elementary school class to make its appearance in ads.

So this was Zero’s George Costanza and his “jerk-store-is-running-out-of-you” moment?

Right this sleazy little twit Obama didn’t have the guts to say this crap to Romney’s face. He waits until Romney is unavailable to give it back. That is the sign of a true liar and coward.

Well, I guess that is what slimey little snakes do.

I think in French it is something like l'esprit de les escaliers--the spirit of the staircase (the witty retorts you think of while leaving the house where the party or dinner was held).

Thanks. I think I saw a comic strip once where "the spirit of the staircase" was mentioned--probably a Peanuts strip.
