Bil Maher has a lot of nerve giving a million bucks to a politician and then proceeding to call anybody else stupid.

Comrade Maher belittled the Dear Leader? That does it - he forfeits his seat on the Supreme Soviet.

Bill Maher can say whatever he wants.

It's you I have a problem with if either you're sitting on the fence, or waffling on your own support of this administration.

Next time give it to charity you stupid fark. The guy raised $180 million last month alone. I think he's good on cash.

Obama is a master troll, however. I wonder what strategy he is playing at with this.
 
2012-10-06 07:12:55 PM  
This is one of many ways Dems are different then Repubs. They will actually call out the crap their candidates do rather than try to rewrite the facts.
 
2012-10-06 07:13:17 PM  
It's possible this is the real explanation for Obama's lackluster performance.
 
2012-10-06 07:15:34 PM  
0bama kept calm and pointed out Romney's lies when he could and made sure to speak slowly and not give any bad soundbites that can be used against him in the future. He knew what he was doing, and with a large lead you don't want to go full derp and come across as angry.

That pisses me off. Because when we do, the response from conservatives is the vote Republican because those people are never wrong. And any criticism you mentioned gets brought up in the future of how ALL Democrats are bad. Plus you agreed with that statement and are now backpedaling. However, criticize the Republican candidates and you are a commie who hates America.

Makh: Obama is a master troll, however. I wonder what strategy he is playing at with this.


There's no strategy per say...at least not one that was evident in the actual debate.

The bottom line:

1. The guy's not perfect and he's never been great at debates, particularly the non-town hall style.
2. Try debating someone who stands there and insists over and over again that the sky is green and their tax plan will create potato deficit. It's pretty farking hard.

I'm not sure why so many bricks are still being shiat over one debate. At the end of the day the biggest things that have come out of it are Romney wanting to kill big bird, a laundry list of bullshiat Romney said that's already showing up in ads, and Obama having said nothing stupid that can be used against him. Romney no doubt won a battle....and it's even more noteworthy than normal given the fact the guy has been a complete fark up for months on end without a single positive news cycle under his belt. But is it going to have a long term impact on the polls...particularly with the job numbers and the recent surplus news from the CBO? I for one really doubt it.

whidbey: Bill Maher can say whatever he wants.

It's you I have a problem with if either you're sitting on the fence, or waffling on your own support of this administration.


Seriously?

Maher didn't say he was sitting on the fence. He just pointed out that the president performed MISERABLY in Wednesday's debate. And, that, simply, is the truth.

Mr. Obama, in my opinion, did worse than Mr. Bush in 2004. He did worse than Mr. Reagan in 1984. He did worse than Carter in 1980.

The ONLY thing the president had going for him to this point was an image of competence and an opponent who was batshiat insane. But, Mr. Obama DID NOT come across as competent in the debate. He came across as completely unprepared and out of his depth. Mr. Romney came across as nearly human. And, so what if Romney lied constantly? Being dishonest has NEVER been a handicap in American elections.

A lot of people have told me I've being too pessimistic...but, I honestly think that the president needs two STELLAR performances to undo the damage he did to himself this week. If he can't manage that, then I suspect he'll lose the election.  And, as a "bonus," I suspect the Democrats will lose the Senate to boot.

The remaining debates will likely be a draw. I think Obama's shiatty performance was a combination of wanting to play it safe combined with the staggering cynicism of Romney completely rewriting his entire platform in 90 minutes. Obama should have recognized this and called him out on it in the moment, not 24 hours later. But it won't farking happen again. Romney's bump will be temporary.

He's going to play the Joe Biden card. Old school Democrat with absolutely nothing to lose is going to go nuts on the policy/numbers wonk who wants to undo Social Security and Medicare.  Come Thursday morning every one will know the real Romney/Ryan plan, and last weeks debate will be forgotten.

shower_in_my_socks: The remaining debates will likely be a draw...Romney's bump will be temporary.


If the remaining debates are a draw, I would bet on a Romney presidency. Seriously.

As I wrote earlier, the president was being buoyed by the impression that he was the only adult running (and, for that matter, the only adult in Washington). But, Mr. Obama's miserable performance washed all that away. He was unprepared and looked like a scared schoolboy.

The president has to erase that impression or, I genuinely believe, he'll be a one-termer.

Of course they do, but they've received absolutely jack shiat for it so far except for Romney being down in the polls for months on end. A trend that's only showing signs of being reversed by Romney wielding retard strength in the debate combined with Obama playing prevent defense. Basically their combined half a billion dollars hasn't returned squat for them...and it's not like Romney won't generate piles and piles of cash and tax cuts for them in the event he wins whether they donated or not.

No Mr. Maher, Obama didn't do anything with the money you gave him because you didn't give him any money. Giving to a SuperPAC is not the same thing as giving to a candidate. I would think someone in your position would understand this.

i kinda felt that way too. i do think he might have been a bit fatique but then again, why take any chances when you are clearly winning?

Obama was playing it super safe and not giving the other side any talking points. he let Rmoney blow his load and kept his cool because he's President and he's going to get a second term.

this had not dimished one iota my conviction that Obama will win in november. i only question i have is will the win be to what degree will he win.

I don't know if they've blown it on nothing yet or not. Romney is still competitive. If not for the carpet bombing of ads he wouldn't be anywhere near winning.

But haven't you heard?? A year of campaigning, a billion dollars in ads, a favorable electoral college map, an improving economy, still better fav/unfav ratings than Romney, and incredibly strong polling numbers in key states like Ohio is all undone by one shiatty debate! It's true! Unless Obama removes Romney's head and spine like Sub Zero in the next debate we're all dooooooomed!

Then why the fark didn't the president call out that lying farker on his bullshiat? Why did Mr. Obama nod, as if agreeing, when that shiatbag Romney made noises about the "unsustainability" of Social Security? Why did the president allow Mr. Romney to recast the election as a referendum on the last 4 years instead of a contest between two choices for the future (which is much more favorable to the incumbent)?

And, by the way, why are Farkers making excuses for the president? He failed. Epically. Extraordinarily.

I'm not going to whistle past the graveyard and post things I want to be true when I don't believe everything is okay. I don't understand why anybody would.

I suppose we'll probably never know. Personally I think the thing keeping Romney in it has had far more to do with the state of the economy and the fact 40+% of the population long ago decided they wouldn't vote for Obama even with a gun to their head. I have a hard time believing the ads have had that large of an impact given there's no way to make Romney look good (unless you count standing by in a debate and letting him lie his ass off for 90 minutes) and there's been four years of Fox News telling anyone willing to listen that he's a Socialist Kenyan out to destroy America and take our guns.

Anyone who took that to be anywhere near a factually correct statement is an idiot. And anyone who took it to be intended as anything close to a factual statement needs to get that stick that is clearly lodged up their ass removed.

Comedians often say things that are not in any real sense "true" in order to make a point or create laughter. This might come as a shock to you but when many comedians discuss their personal lives, you should probably not take what they are saying as strictly autobiographical.
