Axelrod: Obama 'taken
aback by the brazenness' of
Romney's debate performance

Politico, by Mackenzie Weinger

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/7/2012 11:57:40 AM

Obama senior campaign adviser David Axelrod on Sunday said Republican Mitt Romney delivered a “very good performance” at the first presidential debate that was “completely un-rooted in fact” and the president was “taken aback at the brazenness” of the Republican nominee's answers.(snip)As for why Obama did not address Romney’s “47 percent” comments at the debate, Axelrod said “the president obviously didn’t see the appropriate opportunity.” “The president was earnestly trying to answer questions that were asked on the topics that were being discussed, and he didn’t find the opportunity to raise it, and it’s obviously well known,” Axelrod said.

Comments:
I predict 0bama is going to over do it in the next debate and make himself appear even more of a buffoon (if that's even possible) before the world.
0bama can not win against the actuality of Romney if they insist on staying in their utopian fantasy bubble & will suffocate from an overdose of reality if they overreach and deal with Mitt in truthful terms. In short, 0bama is doomed.

I would use the word "assertive"..as a strang, take charge successful businessman would do.
Now picture how the Arabs will be taken "aback" by an strong assertive President named Romney. The Arabs only pay attention to strength in leadership.

Looking at Ramussen this AM, Obama could spend the next debate in a fetal position and get over 40% of the vote.

All these excuses why Obama bombed add up to the fact that Obama isn't good at thinking on his feet. What a joke to say he wanted to answer the questions that were asked! He didn't answer them, to begin with, but politicians are noted for not answering questions, instead turning them around to suit their agenda. Obama could have done anything with the questions, but didn't. And enough for "Romney lied." What B.S.

The only effect Romney had on the Man Child was when he used his "I've raised five sons" line, and that is what caused the meltdown. 0bama is not as smart as some would like us to believe, but he is smart enough to know that Romney called him a child and a LIAR! To the Narcissist in Chief that was just too much to bear. It is probably the first time in his life anyone ever spoke the truth to him.

#6 is thinking along the same line I am: How does this look to other countries? Our supposed president can't answer a question without going off on irrelevant tangents and looks totally incompetent. Four more years of this? If he wins, we're doomed.

Fellow Ldotters, please get out and help the campaign. If you live in a state that is not a swing state, there are ways you can make calls to help in the swing states. If you live in a swing state, get out there and talk to your acquaintances, volunteer with the campaigns - for senate too.

If you are unable to do these things, write a check. We've got to win this thing. Thanks.

The "taken aback by brazenness" excuse has at least two intrinsic problems. (1) It implies that president seriously underestimated his opponent, which is certainly nothing of which to be proud. (2) More significantly, it seems to contradict itself, for if the much referred "lies" were all that obvious and abundant, it should have been that much easier to spot and refute them in the debate. To be simply stunned into submissive silence by the aggressive mendacity of a debate opponent may signify to some people a superior moral and intellectual vantage a la Woodrow Wilson's (in)famous remark that there is such a thing as a nation being too proud to fight. The problem is that such sancta simplicitas, even -indeed especially- if authentic, is not what the office of president of the United States demands.

It is mere nonsense of course, as anyone who has beheld the demagoguery of Obama on the stump in front of friendly audiences knows quite well. Obama has no problem denouncing, defaming and debating opponents - when they are not present to contradict him. Obama's problem is by no means that he is too ethical and intellectual to win a debate with the Father of Lies, the devil incarnate in the form of Mitt Romney. Obama's problem is that he is neither intelligent nor informed enough to hold his own with a capable opponent who does not agree with him about everything.

I would bet that everyone here has noticed how much of a tough guy Obama is when his opponent is not in the room.

Obama is a punk... not a black punk or a white punk... just a plain old punk.

He fights by making faces after the debate is over.

What this shows is that the dems will say anything to win. The only "brazen" thing that Romney did is refuse to accept BO's distortions as "truth". It was rather pathetic.

BO said Romney was for $5 trillion in tax breaks and Romney said it was NOT true. He also said that his guiding principle was that the amount of money paid by the wealthy would not decrease. That's a pretty straight forward declaration. BO repeated the lie. Romney corrected him. I think it happened 4 or 5 times. Romney refused to let BO lie. I guess that is pretty brazen.

The dems and the media are trying to create a theme that Romney some how cheated, first with the handkerchief nonsense and now that Romney was somehow excessively aggressive. The people that saw the debate KNOW what Romney was really like . He listened to what BO said and responded to it. He corrected BO's lies. Since most of what BO says is lies, Romney was doing a lot of correction. I'm sure it didn't sit well with the narcissistic BO.

I loved the young men who lie story. POW!

Axelbox seems to have a flair for redundant sayings. When he speaks of Obama being 'taken aback,' I would suggest that it is a rather extravagant use of the term.

Still, we have come to expect such deceptive reasoning from duplicitous communists.

He's toured the world, and I won't mention anybody in particular, but he thinks Mitt was more brazen than all of them? He is having a fit of vapors over nasty Mitt Romney after everyone he has supposedly sized up in our name? Lordy.

Cairo -- U.S. Sen. John McCain says this summer´s ouster of former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy was a coup, a description that goes against the statements so far from the Obama administration. The White House has avoided using that term for the Egyptian military´s ouster of Morsy.

A growing number of states are targeting what they see as a threat to their court systems: the influence of international laws. North Carolina last month became the seventh state to pass legislation barring judges from considering foreign law in their decisions, including sharia. The bill awaits the signature of Republican Gov. Pat McCrory. Six other states — Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Tennessee — have already enacted similar legislation since 2010, and at least 26 have introduced such measures, according to The Pew Research Center´s Religion and Public Life Project.

A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap.
