Not the Man He Thought He Knew
Wall Street Journal, by James Taranto

Original Article

Barack Obama has an explanation for his poor performance in Wednesday night's debate: The other guy was an impostor. "When I got onto the stage, I met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney," the president said at a Denver rally yesterday: (Snip)Jeremiah Wright and Mitt Romney are two of the most important men in Barack Obama's life, and for reasons that transcend the merely personal. His dealings with them are crucial to his relationships, respectively, with God and with his country. He called Wright his "spiritual mentor" and credited him with saving his soul;

FTA: "Obama seems to lack the basic emotional skill--surely of enormous importance to any task of political leadership--of accurately sizing up other men, whether they be allies or rivals, and of adjusting his view of them to take account of new information."

That's a great observation. But I don't think it goes far enough. He is a user and a liar. He used Jeremiah wright for political connections and cover, knowing full well what he preached ( and agreeing). He then threw him, hard, under the bus, wink wink. As to Mitt, it's all projection. He is projecting onto Romney what he is and does.

Loved the Seinfeld jerk store reference.

Given the venue of the Mile High City perhaps the stooges at his rally knew what the heck he was saying.....I surely didn't get it. But then I'm down here at sea level.

Obama demands that we believe what he is saying, no matter how much of a stretch it is.
After his empty chair performance in the debate Obama just gets harder and harder to believe.

Two weeks ago, Obama said he is "eye-candy". He really believes that and he didn't know how to act when standing next to a really handsome man. He was no longer the "prettiest" face on stage. Jealousy set in and he forgot all of his lines. LOL!

Jerimiah Wright was not thrown under the bus according to Ed Klein in the book The Ameteur.....he was well paid and prepared for the denial that came his way. O and his mentor will once again embrace.

We all know that the Obamboozler couldn't recognize the truth if it bit him in the backside. Now we see that it took him and a team of writers 14 hours to figure out what happened to the seat of his pants...

Obama should scold his handlers. It's all their fault for not giving Mitt his copy of the script. Romney is a Republican, and everybody knows Republicans are supposed to turn the other cheek and then bend over for more unmentionable mistreatment.

So now, Obama has to go out there and create ridiculous lies about Mitt to save face.
.... Wonder when they will attempt to accuse Mitt of being racist. After all, the race card is what got the man elected in the first place.

President Romney stayed on stage with his wonderful family around him....

The difference between the two men is obvious....

#10, you are on a roll today. Great question you had: "Wonder when they will attempt to accuse Mitt of being racist. After all, the race card is what got the man elected in the first place."

More and more people quietly agree, but they are intimidated into silence. In other elections, most people displayed signs for their candidate or weren't too quiet about whom they were going to vote. This year is very different - I don't see many signs or bumper stickers. I substitute teach most days and worry that if I put a Romney bumper sticker on my car, I'll have some damage when I get out of school. I do look to see if there are any Obama stickers on cars, but I don't see many. It could be they are too embarrassed now.

FTA: ''[Obama] didn't show a spark of anger, even when Romney slyly found a way to call him a boy, comparing Obama's statements to the sorts of childish lies his "five boys" used to tell.
How the right's hard-core racists must have howled at that! Mitt, at long last, has secured his base.''

Another example of the derangement of the liberal mind. Took some serious pretzel-work, but the liberal moonbat managed to squeeze in the expected 'racism' crap. These people are certifiable.

Obama was never the big dog the MSM helped him play on TV.

That became painfully clear when we watched him go on stage and shrink before our eyes. On his own and confronted by a man who really is strong and confident, Obama reacted as outmatched bullies often do. He tried to make himself a smaller target. He stuck to the only "weapon" he has needed for the past four years...talking points.

Watching Romney take down the president and the MSM at the same time was the best thing I've seen on TV in a long time.

#13....I don't put a Romney-Ryan sticker on my car for the same reason. In my travels around the DC metro area, I look for Obama bumper stickers every day. It's a rare day when I see more than two of them. I occasionally see an old one from 2008, but not many new ones. A neighbor of mine had one on her car in 2008, but it's gone and has not been replaced this year. I see very few yard signs for Obama this year. I was in DC yesterday (16th Street area) and only saw one yard sign for BO & Joe.

Obama at the debate looked frustrated. This, in my opinion, is because he knew that he didn't have adequate intelligence to deal with an unscripted conversation and certainly could not confront Mitt Romney's vastly superior intelligence. Being a rather slow-witted individual, he just wanted off stage. There is no mystery as to what the situation was. It was simply a display of the pipsqueak's mediocre natural abilities.

Give the guy a break. He thought that going on the View and David Letterman Show, to answer the tough questions that they would surely ask him, would be great debate prep. How could he or his handlers have known that the answers he gave them (telling the View that he is "eye candy" and telling Letterman that he didn't know how much the deficit was) wouldn't work in a Presidential debate? /S

I've always thought our President was just a Hugo Chavez wannabe.

From this article, Taranto posits that the coddled Barack, mmm mmm mmm, is instead and amalgam of Nick Marshall's estrogen infused upbringing (in What Women Want) and Xerxes' stroked egotism as described in the movie 300. Therefore, the Churchill bust was really returned due to jealousy over Winston's high thread count silk underwear and not British colonialism.

And Obama's hormone response the next morning after the debate, is indicative.
Taranto might be on to something.

#16 Those who see sly racism in the most innocuous of comments remind me of my college literature professor who read sex into the most innocent and least sexual of stories and poems, right down to the shedding of autumn leaves in Vermont being a metaphor for a striptease, and a walk into the snowy woods being a reference to female frigidity. The racism is in their own minds, and they read it into everything around them.

Recently Paul Ryan spoke at the American Values summit (do not remember exact name). He said many great things, but one thing in particular lit up the place. He said that one thing BO is good at is setting up Straw Men in order to knock them down.

Because BO is so arrogant, he thought he could waltz in and dazzle the watching world with his swagger and pomp.

Now, now that 60+ million people watched this first debate, a straw man became obvious, and it wasn't Mitt Romney.

Next day, of course, BO resorted to his straw man construction --or an attempt at it-- with the usual culprits throwing in their two cents.

I think, and i hope and pray, that we are on much firmer and more real grounding.

Looking forward to the Ryan/Biden tete-a-tete!!!

I was kinda amazed to see how Obama had recovered during his stump speech on Thursday, the day after the debate. He was his old self, seeming none the worse for wear.
Then I remembered he was reading from TOTUS. Ya gotta give serious credit to Jon Favreau, the wunderkind that leads the speechwriting team at the WH (who rewrote OB's 2004 DNC speech for him in Boston).

Without Jon's words and TOTUS at debates, he is screwed.

When was the last time Obama and Ambassador Chris Stephens were together, alone? Did they have a lover's spat? (both are gay). It was reported that one of the gay choir guys in Rev. Wright's church had an untimely death early in the run up to '08. This kind of problem isn't unknown among the secretive, closeted homosexual community.

the congress has aleady had hearings on eliminating 401Ks. Number one, the govt wants to stop the $80 billion in deductions whatev they are called. and two,
the 401K money is to be 'removed',confiscated, turned in to be matched up w/ your soc sec and then the govt will re-jigger it to pay you 4.4%annuity or pension.All this discussion was at zerohedge.com last year.

Nobody told el Presidente he had no clothes on--again!

Any person not prejudiced for any reason against Mitt Romney could have foretold his debate performances (including the next two.

He can think on his feet and change the game according to what the other dish out. What can o come up with to throw him off stride short of law breaking--not that that would stop o and co.

The past is prologue and he had all kinds of syuff and approaches thrown at him in the primaries (via Newt called a liar and class warfare for one)including Palin getting NC for Newt and then trying to get the pack to drag the primary out, wasting GOP standard bearer's money.

Certain strengths above the run of the mill they may never guess at as they project their own desires and motivations onto him. IOW, they still do not know him.

Leland Yee’s campaign debt at root of
criminal behavior, authorities allege
Sacramento Bee [CA], by Jim Miller    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/31/2014 12:33:03 PM     Post Reply
In more than a decade of campaigns for the California Legislature, San Francisco mayor and secretary of state, state Sen. Leland Yee raised in excess of $5 million. Yet it was a campaign debt only a fraction of that amount that federal officials allege pulled the veteran politician into a sprawling sting operation. The 137-page FBI affidavit against Yee and more than 20 other defendants says the San Francisco Democrat’s focus on retiring a $70,000 campaign debt from his unsuccessful 2011 mayor’s race and raising money for his 2014 candidacy for secretary of state led him to accept bribes in return

The FBI isn’t breaking up with the SPLC —

Last week, the FBI received a lot of attention and praise from conservative sources for finally eliminating the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) from its website’s list of “hate crimes” resources. However, while a headline at Breitbart says the FBI “dumps [SPLC] as hate crimes resource,” and an article at The Daily Caller said the FBI was “breaking ties” with the SPLC, a public statement from the FBI and the agency’s own website indicate the removal may mean just that — removal from the site, not a diminishing of the relationship between the two organizations.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Political hunt for sex abusers puts

The push from the commander in chief, generals and politicians to punish sexual offenders has become so relentless that it endangers the fairness of the military justice system, defense lawyers say. They worry that a cacophony of public statements vouching for accusers and demanding justice can sway military judges and jurors who are trained to take lawful orders. A military judge already has ruled that “unlawful command influence” infected the infamous case of an Army general charged with a string of sex offenses. “I think it’s troublesome when you have the president and the secretary of defense making certain pronouncements about what’s to

7.5 quake on California fault could be

Experts say a bigger earthquake along the lesser-known fault that gave Southern California a moderate shake could do more damage to the region than the long-dreaded “Big One” from the more famous San Andreas Fault. The Puente Hills thrust fault, which brought Friday night’s magnitude-5.1 quake centered in La Habra and well over 100 aftershocks by Sunday, stretches from northern Orange County under downtown Los Angeles into Hollywood — a heavily populated swath of the Los Angeles area. A magnitude-7.5 earthquake along that fault could prove more catastrophic than one along the San Andreas, which runs along the outskirts of

Cuomo and legislative leaders unless they approved a sweeping system of publicly financed campaigns, The Post has learned. Jonathan Soros, who has already spent millions on campaign contributions and television advertising in an ironic campaign to “get private money out of politics,’’ warned Cuomo and the Senate’s co-leaders, Republican Dean Skelos (Nassau) and Democrat Jeff Klein (Bronx), Friday in direct conversations that he would launch election-year attacks against them, and encouraged others to do the same, if

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Today sees the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s (IPCC) latest findings on the state of "global warming" and the news isn´t good. Here are some of the highlights: Giant malarial mosquitoes the size of crane flies may descend en masse and drain us of our blood so quickly with their powerful razor sharp probosces that we won´t even have time to be infected - we´ll be dead before we hit the floor; Bangladesh, Tuvalu, The Maldives and Florida will all be submerged; Four horsemen with skulls for faces, glowing red eyes and huge scythes will gallop across
