Obama’s Old Friends React to the Debate
New Yorker, by David Remnick

Original Article

Posted By:BabyBlueEyes, 10/6/2012 8:44:00 AM

When Barack Obama was a student at Harvard Law School, he was never known as a particularly good debater. In class, if he thought that a fellow student had said something foolish, he showed no forensic bloodlust. He did not go out of his way to defeat someone in argument; instead he tried, always with a certain decorous courtesy, to try to persuade, to reframe his interlocutor’s view, to signal his understanding while disagreeing. Obama became president of the law review—the first African-American to do so

Yes, and when asked, friends of the Captain of the Titanic stated that the ship didn't just smash into the iceberg and doom it's riders. Instead, the ship was professorial and attempted to be inclusive to the pressure of the iceberg as it pressed into the side of the ship, neatly tearing a gigantic hole which then thoughtfully shared the air space both within and without the hull of the ship.

Ask Representative Paul Ryan and Supreme Court Justices about the polite man who reached out to work across the divide of philosophical differences.

I bet they would have a different opinion of him...especially the liberal justices who received the very rude "shout-out" from the Pres the State of the Union.

This article needs a barf-alert and a big Baloney!

Unfinbelievable! He got to be editor of the review because of affirmative action. He is not a conciliator, he is a gutless liar. If it wasn't for his syncophants he would be collecting garbage like his brother in the campaign ad.

FTA:“The President has always been someone who takes the truth seriously and has a great faith in the American people and their ability to handle big ideas,” Burns said. “He doesn’t patronize them. He uses the campaign as an educative process. He wants to win but also wants to be clear about his ideas…." To borrow a British term, I am completely Gobsmacked! And this friends is only one of many whoppers!

"He showed no forensic bloodlust".
Do a search on his debate as State Senator when he was arguing against medical treatment for botched abortion babies born alive.
"The baby or fetus, whatever you want to call it doesn't come out limp and cold"..
There is an audio of him..listen, then send it to your friends.

The anticipated resuscitation has begun. In this charming display of CPR we learn that the reason Obama lost is that he is too substantive, has such a high regard for the truth, and is repulsed by the ugly aggression of political campaigning.

This remarkable fantasy might stand at least a glimmer of a chance of persuading if we did not have the spectacle of Obama demagoguing before friendly audiences to test it against. As it turns out, Obama is a magnificent debater - when he is attacking Straw Men and when there is no opponent present to challenge him. Nor are his supposed politeness and reverence for the truth on display in his solo performances. He manages to misrepresent, distort, deceive, denigrate and defame with the best of them. He is an artist at character assassination as per Alinsky - again, as long as there is no adversary present to contradict him. He is actually a kind of rhetorical bully when he is picking upon an absent opponent. He romps and stomps and shouts and howls and walks all over his adversary - as long as the latter is not there to defend himself.

Entiae non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem = keep it simple, stupid.

The dude is a dishonest dope. That's all there is to it. There is no more. Intricate and subtle hypotheses are not require to save the appearances. He performed precisely as a dishonest dope would be expected to perform under the circumstances of the debate.

Sigh. More liberal Obamabot spin. Obama got crushed. Plain and simple. This is true on both style and substance. Polls after the debate said people, by more than 3 to 1, thought Romney won. I'll give this writer credit. At least he didn't try to peddle the latest liberal meme. That is, Romney had a "cheat sheet" on his handkerchief and that every time he wiped his nose he looked at his notes.

I do recall his mastery at out-debating the smartest woman in the world, Hillary. His debating ability must stem from that one storyline in the eyes of so many sheep in this nation. The only problem with this theory is that She is the worst candidate ever to stand on a stage-bar none. And He needed a teleprompter to do something as simple as that

Obama was expecting the fawning debate treatment he got in 2008 (remember the SNL skit, where the CNN folks were asking Obama if he was comfortable, wanted a glass of water, etc.).

Obama's idea of fairness is where he gets to bring a gun to a knife fight.

Life's a ....

And yeah, we never knew Obama had "old friends."

If Barack skews cerebral, so does pee wee herman.
A law school graduate should be able to think on his feet, rebut opponents' arguments, and be as tough as necessary.
(Any fellow l dotters who live in pennsylvania, go to the PCN channel, where the appellate court cases are shown. You will see that every attorney arguing before the coourts has the necessary skills unknown to barack.
Law schools require moot court as a required course. I doubt very much if barack took that course.

Obama was President of Harvard Law Review, and was not an editor. It takes scholarship to be an editor, but apparently he was elected president by law review memers, because he was seen as a conciliator. Half the members were lefties and half righties. Choom guy helped bring a divisive membership together, or something.
I heard this back in 2004 in Boston, when he had come to prominence after the D convention there. A colleague told me that he had heard about Obama as presidential material way back in the HLS days.

Let's see-he studied law, but can't argue aggressively and eschewed moot court competition, he was president of the law review, and apparently did not write a single thing during his tenure, yet argument and persuasive writing are key attributes of a good lawyer. There is a old saying that those who can't do teach. Perhaps that is why Obama seems more suited as a lecturer (not professor) at a law school as opposed to one required to think and act on his feet without aids such as teleprompters.

We need to make sure we don't get too far ahead of ourselves. He is an empty suit but anyone who thinks that was the real Obama forgets the 1st Bush/Kerry debate (It's hard work). IMHO Obama realized early on that he was woefully unprepared and just decided to cover-up like a boxer until next round. That was why he didn't use his best stuff (the 47%, Bain, etc.) He knew Romney was ready to respond to it and he wasn't to defend it so he didn't want to waste it.

I don't think they all really believe the BS they spew, but they have to do it. There is no deviation from the Party line allowed, and they all must do their part to reinforce the fantasy, when asked, and give a politically correct answer. They all live in liberal la la land, and this is what they do, indoctrinate, propagandize, self-reinforce each other in their delusions.

The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket.

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."




For Dems, a problem with seniors

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing
