AverageAmericanGuy: Ben Stein was suggesting the same type of thing on the OraTV post-debate show yesterday.

It's hilarious to see all you libs running around looking for any perspective that makes Obama come off as the winner of last night's debate. He lost badly.

He may be a gifted speaker, but his debate skills are not very good.

/or maybe he's doing a rope-a-dope and allowing himself to get reamed in the debates on purpose.


It's equally hilarious to see you rightwingers chanting "Imperator Gloriosus" and strewing rose pedals in Mittens' path.

There may have been some intentional strategy in play by keeping things low-key, but even I think Obama was taken aback by the sheer volume of bullshiat flowing from Romney's side of the stage. A poster yesterday mentioned it was like trying to fight a swarm of bees with logic... you just couldn't do it. The problem, the reason Romney "won", is because he effectively ignored and laid waste to the basic premise of a debate, which is to discuss issues. There was no discussion, it was simply Romney running around in REGURGITATE $BULLSHIAT mode through a high-flow valve. So congrats to him, I guess.

I suspect the next two debates will have a substantially different outcome now that Romney's shot his wad in the first one.

themeaningoflifeisnot: As a Democrat and Obama supporter, even I don't buy this one bit. There was no real advantage to letting Romney reinvigorate himself Wednesday night. Obama should have stomped on him and watched while a Romney loss in the debate started to shut down his contributors. He didn't even come close to doing that. And now, instead of being pissed and wanting to know why Obama didn't fight back on every front and stand up for what's right, all of these Obama supporters are spouting this long game bullshiat and he didn't want Romney to get sympathy votes so he tanked--not just a draw--but he tanked.

C'mon, get real. Obama blew it. No 47%, no Bain, hardly even touched Romney on his refusal to bailout the auto industry. Who gives a shiat about the fact checkers when the story your performance creates is all about how bad you were? He has to do better next time out and we should expect him to be better instead of making incredible excuses for him.


this. As an Obama supporter, the denial among other Obama supporters is much more disheartening than Obama's loss. While I'm skeptical that Romney's win was anything more than putting a stop to the hemorrhagging of his campaign, that in and of itself is a kind of victory and a bigger victory than Obama can really claim. Romney spewing non-stop bullshiat would be a big deal if I thought pointing out those inconsistencies would actually sway votes at this point. If anything, Romney's appearance was more about tossing out red meat to his (lukewarm) supporters than debating any kind of policy, this is likely the same scenario in the next 2 debates*. I don't think Obama is down for the count by this loss an am hopeful that he does comeback in a big way, but an Obama win really could've been a knock-out blow for Romney. I don't buy the "long game" excuse one bit.

*it will be interesting to see if the Biden/Ryan debates show a similar strategy. Ryan seems to genuinely believe the bullshiat where Romney seems to merely recognise it more as politically advantageous.


that bosnian sniper: Or admitting there are, in fact, portions of Obamacare that do right. The "repeal and replace" canard isn't going to cover for that


ignoring the obvious doubletalk from Romney, I'm surprised it's actually taken this long for Romney to embrace Romneycare. I always figured, at least post-Primaries, he would talk up Romneycare vs Obamacare as some kind of muddled States' Rights argument... and the Republicans would probably regurgitate that nonsense because Obamacare's biggest flaw to them was that it did not originate from a Republican congress or President.

"He's probably more accustomed to that kind of "debate." You know, because he's a rich asshole the president that tells other people what to do.

The problem is that simpletons equate being bossy likeable with being a leader."


What I found remarkable was the next morning BO was at a Denver campaign stop, with teleprompters no less. The press didn't crop them from the photo this time. He needs those for campaign stop rambles of talking points repeated over and over too? Note to Axlewater: in your "aggressive" looking into why this happened, consider taking away the teleprompters from BO for the next week or so, it will be good training for the next debate.

And this altitude thing is complete bullshiat. I've occasionally handled cases in Denver, and never once felt the affects of altitude while doing my job. I can see the possibility if it was an athletic performance, but not for a damn debate.

Badafuco: I've lived at an elevation of 35 feet most of my life. I recently went to Colorado Springs for 3 days. I went hiking at the Garden of the Gods the same day I flew in. Felt just fine. Never felt out of breath or light headed.


I agree that altitude is a lame excuse (and not being mentioned by Obama's team). Obama is in excellent physical shape and debates are not exactly aerobic.
 
2012-10-05 08:15:26 AM  

ralinsilver: I still dont see how romney "won". After watching they both seemed fine. Sure Mitt was louder and more animated. But that was the only difference. Is that all that is required to "win"


Romney talked a lot of smack that Obama didn't respond to, but he responded to anything Obama said that he didn't like. Also, Romney showed some "Alpha Male" control of the room which is a form of winning to many people.

CPennypacker: Yawn teleprompter. I'd rather have a candidate who has to read his ideas off a tv screen than one that has no ideas in the first place.


So you think what Obama reads from the teleprompter are actually "his" ideas?
Obama couldn't string two sentences togethor about "his" platform the other night, yet we have been told he's one of the most intelllegient president's ever? That Obama is one of the greatest orators, ever?

If Obama had a solid understanding of "his" platform and ideas,, I thnk he would have been able to at least hold his own the other night.

What I saw the other night was shocking.

Obama's remarks the day after seem so pathetic.

People who think thier guy Obama can do no wrong will never admit it and will blindly follow him. But for onjective thinkers, I belive they have to admit, the other night in no way helped Obama.
 
2012-10-05 08:20:24 AM  

Kimothy: Obama was in a no-win situation. If he'd come out as aggressive against Romney, he'd have been lambasted and beaten up in the press. This of course made many of his supporters angry, and got the press asking the question, why didn't he go after Romney?

Now for the next two debates, when he does go after Romney, instead of being lambasted in the press and public, people will see him as getting it together and really debating. Now he's got everyone's permission to go be a bulldog, and he won't receive the criticism he'd have gotten last night.

It's the same thing he did to McCain. Obama is a long-plan thinker.


While I'd love to think that is true, I'm not sure, I think he just blew it.

So in a national crisis, say benghazi, you'd rather BO read off a temelprompter to answer the call at 3 am? maybe the teleprompter wasn't there, and thats why he didn't answer the phone that night. Seriously - the teleprompter is like copying homework during college coursework. It gets you through most of the class, but when the test comes, you just don't know the answers. BO really ought to give them up for awhile, or call in sick for the next debate. I don't think the debate preps can presuppose every item, and BO needs to think - and talk - on the fly. For example, "the 90B you wasted on green energy - that would have paid for 200 million teachers". Tough to retort, gotta be a quick thinker. Whoops, I mean thinker/talker - a non-teleprompted thinker/talker not barfing up someone else's lines..

Yes he beat a decorated Vietnam veteran and then right wing starlet and navigated this country through 4 difficult years of economic recovery including making tough decisions on FP issues such as the OBL raid, shooting the pirates and navigating a mine field that was the withdraw from Iraq. But he can't handle the pressure of a mendacious, smug, Upper Class Twit of the Year who literally lied about every position he's ever had on anything

OK, your a likeable guy, but obviously don't have the answers, maybe your teleprompter isn't working this morning. I imagine "OK your too stupid" is about all BO could come up with that night when Mitt left jabbed him with that one, but he was smart enough not to say that. BO needs to put the teleprompters away for the next week is all I was saying. Romney/Ryan is no McCain/Palin. And there is a lot to explain on the last 4 years. See ya later.

Well both he and Obama are Nobel prize winners.

I belive in the last election, Obama won due to many of the undecided voters thinking " Maybe what Obama is talking about is possible, maybe - just maybe all this soaring rhetoric, and promises of healing the planet, living in a post racial enviroment, mending relationships around the world might actually happen" and so they voted with the longshot Obama rather than the Milquetoast Mcain canadate.

4 years later and we see we're really not that better off. Obama is faltering and has trouble running on his achievments. These debates are critical for the undecided voters. Obama shows up and drops the ball.

There's blood in the water and I think Obama is in serious trouble.

There's red food coloring in the water, maybe. You're right that the US hasn't become a golden paradise in the past 4 years. You're wrong in claiming that this is all or even mostly Obama's fault. He's not blameless, and no one credible suggests that he's been perfect, but he arrived in the middle of a hundred-year shiat blizzard and got the fleet of plows out as quickly as he could. Meanwhile, the GOP gremlins have been chewing the wheels and wiring off of the plows as fast and hard as they can while simultaneously denying they're doing so and denying any responsibility for calling down the shiat blizzard in the first place.

The democrats as a group have earned maybe a C+ over the past 4 years. The republicans have earned an expulsion for grossly unAmerican misconduct.

Talking to some folks that know about debate forensics, I was told that Obama was obviously trying to "lose." They said he broke several basic rules, including looking down a lot and not making eye contact, repeating the same points over and over without even really changing the language, and using stale, repeated lines from his past speeches and ads. He did this way too much for it to have just simply been an off day for him, they said. And something about his opening and closing remarks were full of several basic no-nos that they felt there was no way his team would have let it be done accidentally. He had to know what he was doing, they said.

Their theory is that Obama was merely extending the game of lowered expectations that both sides traditionally employ leading up to a debate in order to make a meh performance look better. Apparently this is not some groundbreaking tactic; he apparently did something similar with McCain. So now: Expectations are going to be REALLY low for Obama and REALLY high for Romney going into debate no. 2. Plus, Romney has tipped his hand pretty hard. They said to expect Obama to come out moderately but effectively more aggressive and for Romney to be caught off guard by that, and Obama will more than likely be seen as "winning" the next debate.

Some people do worse than others at altitude... especially smokers. I'm not saying it's "the reason" for an unexpectedly weak performance, but it might have been a contributing factor. The man looked tired. Period.

I remember years ago, when GHWB was prez, he and Gorbechev had some big treaty negotiations. The White House and Kremlin agreed it should be on completely neutral territory, and Poppy's team suggested on a ship at sea. According to multiple sources, Gorby was seasick the entire time while Bush (an old sailor from way back) had no problems at all. Nice advantage, if you can get it.

What played a bigger role is the fact that Obama doesn't need to debate Romney.
If he does he risks a gaff or giving ammunition to the republicans. His opponent is aggressive and will push on any numbers dropped on the table.
Instead he can sit back and let the media do its job of taking apart Romney while they also polishing the image of the president.

I was mocking your statement "nobody is making excuses for Obama's debate performance" by using the most prevalent and ridiculous excuse in this thread, that Obama deliberately threw the debate so that he could lay the smack down in a later debate.

TheCruxOfTheBiscuitIsTheApostrophe: CPennypacker: TheCruxOfTheBiscuitIsTheApostrophe: CPennypacker: Danger Mouse: CPennypacker: ....Nobody is making excuses for Obama's debate perfomance. I guess good ideas to you are just who can shout the most BS the loudest.

- Blink -

Huh? did you just say "No one is making excuses for Obama's performance" ? It's what this whole thread is about!!!! It's exactly what the topic is about. Talk about B.S. You're so full of it, I'm surprised your font isn't brown.

Honestly, you sound like Homer Simpson.1111


Wow.

By no one I meant no one in our exchange. Get it?

According to Fark forensics experts, CPennypacker is deliberately trying to come across as a nitwit in order to bring the shiat in another thread. Makes perfectly good sense.

/this whole thing is laughable. Obama lost the debate because he got out-debated.

What? He did get out debated. He looked like he was asleep.

I'll explain.

I was mocking your statement "nobody is making excuses for Obama's debate performance" by using the most prevalent and ridiculous excuse in this thread, that Obama deliberately threw the debate so that he could lay the smack down in a later debate.

Sorry to shamelessly use your comment to demonstrate the astoundingly stupid excuses being used to explain what was simply a beating.


Eh I'm fine with it. I can't wait to see the excuses that bubble up on November 6th

TheCruxOfTheBiscuitIsTheApostrophe: way south: What played a bigger role is the fact that Obama doesn't need to debate Romney.
If he does he risks a gaff or giving ammunition to the republicans. His opponent is aggressive and will push on any numbers dropped on the table.
Instead he can sit back and let the media do its job of taking apart Romney while they also polishing the image of the president. 

/No one watches debates anyway.

And by no one you mean 67 million people.


Alot of televisions were tuned to the channel, where they would have seen one candidate practically lecturing the other for over an hour.
What did the voters take away from the whole thing?

Big bird.

/Which is highlighted in the summary everyone got the next day.
/Which is all they needed to know.
/Which is how you know no one was actually watching the debate.

shotglasss: Bigdogdaddy: I guess maybe he's been busy Presidentin' and probably had other things on his mind. Romney hasn't even had a job for 4 frikkin' years, unless you count sitting in his vault playing Scrooge McDuck.

That, or Obama just really didn't want it bad...and I hope that's not it.

How much Presidentin' does Obammy accomplish while sitting on The View? Or on Letterman? Or on the golf course? Or at the fundraisers he's at every night? Or throwing down with JayZ while not allowing pictures to be taken of him slamming eight hundred dollar bottles of champagne?

He wants the job desperately, because it gets him invited to all the cool parties and it lets him destroy the lives of millions of people he hates.


Wow, that's the most stupid I ever read in 6 sentences. Bonus points because most of them weren't complete anyway.
