Is Obama overrated
as a candidate?

Washington Post, by Chris Cillizza

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/7/2012 11:51:36 PM

In his closing remarks at the first debate in Denver last week, President Obama uttered the following sentence: “Four years ago, I said that I’m not a perfect man and I wouldn’t be a perfect president.” For anyone who has watched Obama campaign for a second term this year, the phrase is old hat — part of the president’s seemingly self-effacing acknowledgment that he has, is and will continue to make mistakes but that he does so in the service of trying to do the right thing. But the now-familiar phrase took on a different — and more troubling

However, in answer to the question, yes, he is overrated.

People usually tell you who they are, we just don't believe them. He told us he would stand with his Muzlim brothers. He told us he wouldn't be a perfect prez. He also said he was a choomer. Many didn't believe him and voted for him anyway. Now they will repeat the same mistake.
They just happened to see the real Zippy on stage in the first debate.

He was over rated in 2004, he was over rated in 2008 and he's over rated today. It was the press that insisted that 0bama was the light bringer, g-ds gift to the masses, smartest man on earth. 0bama didn't "defeat" or "outmaneuver" Hillary Clinton. The truth is that the press destroyed her while ignoring anything negative about 0bama.

0bama is the creation of the media. He is no more "presidential" material than Martin Sheen. 0bama is a creation, a facade, a myth. Obama IS Styrofoam Greek columns.

If I am not mistaken, Cillizza is a reliable fanboy of Obama. I am noticing that, since the debate, it seems to be popular to pile on the Obama basking wagon. Let's hope this keep up. We're gonna need a big victory to overcome the Chavez-style fraud the dims have planned.

Like all Marxist socialists, IMO the people pulling his strings tend to get bored with prepping 0bama with the right programming and just fill him with a serving of praise and some platitudes and send him out while they concentrate on looting the system and enslaving the masses. Oops, 0bama fell over. Time to prop him up again. But it might be too late.

read all the comments at the end of the article. there are still an awful lot of obama lovers and romney haters out there. i just wonder why, if romney lied so much during the debate, pres. obama didn't question the lie and correct it. clearly, he can't think on his feet. all he can do is read the teleprompter and give silly interviews with silly people. let's see some brilliance. i haven't seen it once in all these 4 years of this president.

The left and media bought their own baloney and hype about Obama,that's why they're so shell shocked about Obama's debate performance.Matthews couldn't figure it out because Obama's IQ is in the stratosphere.

The whole reason for Obama being president is redistribution.Without that as a theme,he's lost. He did manage to attack rich people but it was clumsily delivered.

There's no way Obama is going to be prepared for the next debate without getting the questions ahead of time.

I still think he is a perfect man and a perfect president. I think this because I get my hard-hitting, objective news from the mainstream media, and they not only tell the truth but not once have tried to cover-up or lie for President Perfection. Not once! It's so great that we have such a free press, that when Eternal Perfection comes along in the form of socialist mulatto with a teleprompter, that this free press is brave enough to proclaim His perfection for four whole years without the slightest little tingle of dissent! It's just awesome, as is He.

The writer is as close to objective as one can be and keep their job at WAPO. If it wasn't for WAPO owning a for-profit "university" they would be bankrupt. We need an obscene profits tax on Kaplan since it gets most of its revenue from government student loans.

I keep expecting Jake Tapper to get fired from ABC at any time for the crime of sometimtes pulling back the curtain on the all powerful Wizard of Odd. UpChuck Todd and the rest of the Andrea Mitchells at NBC are really getting testy these days. I guess the Obama bundlers who (COMmmunistCAST)own them are putting pressure on them to turn this thing back around. Everyone needs to buy a "Journalists for Obama" tee-shirt. A lot of the Dims don't even know its a joke, but if we don't turn out to vote, the joke will be on us again.

Don't get too excited over the sudden media enlightenment. The second debate is a 'townhall' that will be heavily stacked with birkenstock liberals all stoked up with handwritten gotcha questions. The media are too heavily invested in this election to let him lose now. Romney will need to make fools out of Obama and the audience.

I think what we are seeing from the press is not even buyer's remorse. It is a scramble to rescue their own credibility.
Picture a used car salesman trying to sell a shiny sports car that he knows has been in a flood and needs major mechanical repairs. While on a test drive the muffler falls off on the road. Does he continue to draw the eye to the great color and leather seats, or does he express his disgust at his mechanics for not being more diligent and then guide the customer to another car. If he continues to say this is a fine car, the customer will no longer trust him.
The press is just trying to critique O in hopes of regaining the respect of their readers. They have hopes of selling them many cars over the years.
#5 is right. O is the competent reader of prepared speeches. He is not, and never was a genius or superior politician. He had all the required elements that the puppet masters needed. Then 911 happened and they realized that his name was going to be a problem. But they pressed on anyway because their investment had been so great and it still had the potential for success.

He is our own personal Hugo Chavez however: look out for the Chicago methodology. Already a scandal re: foreign (and accepted) campaign donations, the business re: the WARN notices for layoffs, with Obama promising to pay for any lawsuits that result for lack of compliance, no i,d. to vote, military not getting material for voting despite huge amounts of $ being spent to guarantee it, etc. etc. etc. This will NOT be an honest election.

Plenty of good people before you - LONG BEFORE YOU - have figured this guy out, and you just ridiculed us. You expect us to believe YOU'RE one of the Super-Smarts in charge of shaping our opinions? In your wet dreams, buddy.

Now, pull your head out, and get busy! I dare you to publish what you find out there - it's not that difficult, and it's voluminous! Forget your cocktail party tonight - those people have steered you wrong, you dope.

I wonder if the Zero has an A.B. Normal brain. It is not capable of remembering facts, figures, etc. about our economy, domestic policy, and so much more. So he just Alinskyfies everything and hopes it will cover his lack of cognitive ability. The severe lack of functioning brain cells is hi-lighted by a debate format.

Also wondering if they will chemically enhance him for his next performance and he will be so over the top that it will make heads spin.

And the Press has gone way too far to rescue its credibility re: Obama. With the excerption of a few, like Jake Tapper at ABC who manage to be decent, they are so in the bag as to be laughable........take NBC in general, for example, with the leadership of Brian Williams and Tom Brocaw------in their own way they are as terrible as a Chris Matthews, maybe even more so because they are supposedly giving us "straight" news and not raging opinion. Just look at the fact that NBC under Williams had to tap dance like mad re: Holder's indictment, as they had mentioned Fast & Furious just once over the past year!

I think the media is beginning to show its immaturity. Like the youth of today, the media wants ALWAYS to be first first first, because to have something RARE is to be the coolest in the room. Just like the teenager or young adult who will spend crazy amounts of money on trendy and expensive clothes, the media wants to be at the top of the trends, too.

The newest trend is to express doubt in Obama and question his ability to lead. It makes you look oh so wise if you're a far lefty. It has nothing to do with wanting to look more conservative or give approval to Romney, it's simply something different, and therefore, rare. "Oh, Obama, he's SOOOOO 2008!" Rarity = coolness. Even Saturday Night Live has been part of this trend, trying to look so prescient and wise.

Great posts, guys!! Yessir, #39.

The left is just filled with empty-headed, shallow, silly nitwits. Obama is "young, good-looking (??), can read well, is brilliant, a law professor (not), went to the right schools, etc etc"

All of which are hollow nothingness. None of which is related to doing a good job as anything, including -especially- as president.

They love actors too (I used to be one -a pro) and that I don't get. Actors read what other people have written -they may be good at that, but it doesn't translate into brainpower or good sense. In many cases, they aren't just not smart, they don't have the sense to tie their own shoes. But the left "admire" them. And actually listen to them. (Think for a moment of Sean Penn in that boat in New Orleans. Right?)

The left are all silly, shallow people. The Obama debacle has been a eye-opener for some, maybe even Chris Cillizza (probably not). May be some good news there.

He is overrated on every scale imaginable. Earth to the LSM: he's never done anything in his life except run for office. There's no there, there. The emperor has no clothes. He's the man behind the screen. Take away his TelePrompter and he's dead. (I'll stop now; call me if you begin to get the leg tingles.)

No.s 41 & 45 said it right. Lefties like to project their own "good intentions" & bad luck stories on the chosen few they vote for. Shallowness & the "cool" factor are actual job qualifiers for dems. I'll take it one further, I know an extreme lib who was very impressed with BO's books - BO had an aboriginal name, a citizen-of-the-world upbringing & he took drugs to expand his "awareness." This made him a special kind of exotic rebel - unbound by normal, white-bread conventions! These loser qualities are what appealed to this particular lib. In other words - they had a lot in common & he was voting for someone who was no better than he was.

This getting full credit for "trying" is something that is ingrained in certain segments of our population. The idea that all you have to do is show up and you get the same result as the guy who actually accomplishes something is the equivalent of not keeping score.

It is pernicious and corrosive to our society. It has to stop.

I was watching the news from Venezuela this morning, with Chavez' 54% victory... interviews were done with people in the streets, and one man saying "We need socialism so we can have a better life."

Those words chilled me to the core. It's happening here. It has to be stopped, or there'll be no going back.

Overrated by whom? He is a great speech giver only to those who like sophomoric and empty pomposity. As a candidate he is what he is, a media invention. And they are having an increasingly difficult time trying to pass him off as an accomplished politician (and person). The media failures are reflected in the title of this article.

As far as Bill Clinton is concerned, he is another of their foundlings. Does Chris remember how upset their hero was when he pointed his finger at the public and declared, "I did not have sex with that woman"? Now Chris tells us how magnificent his precious Bill was under duress. What a crock!

These media types certainly can convince themselves of the most insincere thoughts. Does Chris think that maybe they themselves are highly overrated as propagandists?

Some democrat saw him before the time he was elected and thought, this is a good speaker, we can mold him into a person who can take over this country and make it like we want it - liberal through and through. SO someone started programing Obama and now that is what we are seeing. Obama is not a smart man, he is just been programmed like a puppet to say and do things like his handlers want him to be. This is a conspiricy to take over this country by the liberals and they have capured the media and now they have gone with it. It is working, probably even better than they ever dreamed it would. It will continue to work as there are so many stupid people in this country.

The problem is not that 0bama is overrated.

The problem is that 0bama is UNDERRATED.

As an intentional destroyer of the USA.

Too many of you people think that he has brought all this about because he is incompetent and ignorant.

NO,
He has brought this about because he was raised from infancy to hate the USA, Capitalism, and western civilization in general, and is intentionally doing all he can to remake it into a second world marxist / maoist hellhole.

What I have never understood is why people buy the myth that Obama said this, Obama did that, Obama believes such and so.

Obama does not exist. There is a stooge made to look like him, a cardboard cutout at the front of a robot whose controls are manipulated by Valerie Jarrett and her cadre of Muslims and leftists to direct his every movement and program his teleprompter.

Obama was fine with that while rose petals were being strewn in his path. Now that he's the one getting pies in the face, it's not so much fun. He wants to gather his toys and go to Hawaii.

'The latest jobs report is out, showing the economy added 114,000 jobs, beating estimates of 113,000. The unemployment rate fell to 7.8%, the Department of Labor reported, due to the addition of 873,000 people who self-identified as employed.
That rate was a sharp drop from the 8.1% a month earlier. Those jobs were mostly part-time in nature. Also, the 7.8% jobless rate understates the problem of the underemployed. What would the unemployment rate be if all the people who want a job suddenly re-entered the workforce? Answer: 11.63%.' - Source: Elizabeth McDonald, Fox Business News

What I am waiting from the repubics to find out the dark forces behind obozo.
Because, I think many of you agree with me that obozo is just a convenient front for anti-American cabal.
For them he was the front that will speed up the final goal - transformation of America or maybe seizure of power! Not hillary, not many other dems - they were too "American" unlike this person.
So, in mine conspiracy theory polluted mind we need to not only win this elections, but find these forces and expose them, so we have the support of majority of Americans to not get in this dire situation again!

Continuing my comment #62.
#30 - the media doesn't do "credibility" anymore. Did pravda of voelkischer beobachter do "credibility"? No, they did propaganda under the orders from the Ministry of Propaganda! (which in our case is whoever is behind the scenes.
Many of you mention jarrett as a composer and conductor. I think there are mightier forces at the base of this cabal. They needed money and broad base to vet enough of the operatives. I am from former soviet union and they made me study the history of the communist party of USSR. I will tell you this: that kind of movement has to have huge amount of money, places for conspiracy meeting, for storing documents, working on vetting prospective members, etc
And our repubics completely missed this!

"Obama IS Styrofoam Greek columns." Perfect, you nailed it #5.

"0bama is the creation of the media. He is no more "presidential" material than Martin Sheen. 0bama is a creation, a facade, a myth. Obama IS Styrofoam Greek columns."

True also. I've been trying to tell my friends that Obama is a fake, fraud and phony for a long, long time. Do they listen,......? No, of course not.

It’s a big weekend for the Bush family, which is enjoying a renaissance of sorts after several years in the political wilderness. Throngs of former administration officials, members of Congress and others descended Friday on College Station, Tex., to fete former president George H.W. Bush on the 25th anniversary of his arrival in office. One of the highlights of the weekend will be a live interview with his son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who has quietly been exploring a 2016 presidential campaign. About 180 miles to the north, former president George W. Bush is hosting an event of a

Put aside the numbers for a moment, and the daily argument. "Seven point one million people have signed up!" "But six million people lost their coverage and were forced onto the exchanges! That´s no triumph, it´s a manipulation. And how many of the 7.1 million have paid?" "We can´t say, but 7.1 million is a big number and redeems the program." "Is it a real number?"

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional. Barack Obama inexplicably remains, as of this writing, president of the United States of America, but Mr. Eich has just been forced out as CEO

Oregon State University, disdaining responsibility for trashing distribution boxes that were intended for a politically conservative student newspaper, has still paid $1,000 plus $100,000 in legal fees after a former student, William Rogers, filed suit against them. The lawsuit, filed in 2009 by supporters of the newspaper The Liberty, contended that the university president and other school officials permitted the official campus newspaper access to distribution bins, but school officials removed the bins for The Liberty. The suit alleged that school officials confiscated distribution bins for The Liberty and tossed them onto a trash heap. The bins, which contained copies

House Republicans have scheduled a vote next week to hold Lois G. Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about her role in the Internal Revenue Service’s tea party targeting scandal, setting up a major battle over constitutional rights versus Congress‘ ability to oversee the government. Rep. Darrell E. Issa, the House’s top investigator, said Thursday that as a senior official at the center of the IRS targeting, Ms. Lerner will either talk or face penalties for refusing to help the committee get to the bottom of who orchestrated the targeting and what the motives were. “Ms. Lerner’s

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

When his aides get discouraged about the prospects for Middle East peace, Secretary of State John F. Kerry often bucks them up with a phrase: “Don’t be afraid to be caught trying.” But as his tireless efforts to broker Israeli-Palestinian negotiations hit bottom Thursday, with Israel’s cancellation of prisoner releases that were considered crucial to keeping the talks alive, there are some around Kerry — including on his senior staff and inside the White House — who believe the time is approaching for him to say, “Enough.” Kerry risks being seen as trying too hard at the expense of a

The American left is outraged that the Supreme Court has voted 5 to 4 that limits to the aggregate amount of donations to federal campaigns have been found unconstitutional. Prior to the ruling, there was a 123,200 limit ($48,600 for candidates and $74,600 in contributions to PACs) on the total amount a single donor could contribute in a two year federal campaign cycle. The ruling did not affect the existing $2,600 limit on the maximum donation to any Congressional campaign. As you might have already guessed, Harry Reid had the most predictable reaction, invoking the Koch Brothers. “The Supreme Court today

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trying to put Obamacare’s problems behind him, President Obama renewed his election-year push for an increase in the minimum wage Wednesday and the White House urged fellow Democrats to latch on to the issue for their own political gain. Speaking at the University of Michigan, the president again fiercely advocated for a rise in the nation’s minimum wage, trying to keep the issue front and center as the November midterm elections creep closer. “In America, we don’t believe in opportunity for a few — we believe that everybody should have a chance at success,” Mr. Obama

Compromise on smaller minimum

President Obama campaigned in Michigan with Dem Senate candidate Gary Peters, making the case for a hike in the federal minimum wage to $10.10. Unfortunately, the wrangling in the Senate today suggests the idea is going to die. Senator Susan Collins has said she’s trying to craft a bipartisan compromise on the minimum wage that could win Republican support — a compromise that would require hiking the minimum wage to an unspecified point below the $10.10 per hour that Obama and Democrats want. Today Harry Reid ruled out the idea, insisting that Dems won’t agree to anything below $10.10. In

THE SUPREME Court on Wednesday overturned yet another federal law meant to check corruption and influence-peddling in national politics. The ruling shows two things: The Roberts Court’s destructive view on these matters wasn’t changed by the backlash to its Citizens United holding, and Congress must respond by designing new rules that can pass the court’s overly skeptical review. If lawmakers tackle the issue forthrightly, they have some workable options. The court eliminated an overall limit on how much donors could give to candidates, parties and various other committees over the course of an election cycle. The idea had been to

President Obama expressed the White House’s frustration with news coverage of the Affordable Care Act’s rocky rollout by taking a jab at the press on Tuesday. During his ObamaCare enrollment victory lap speech in the Rose Garden, the president swiped at reporters, who the White House believes were too eager to spotlight every incremental development associated with the site´s botched launch. “I want to make sure everybody understands – in the months, years ahead, I guarantee you there will be additional challenges to implementing this law,” Obama said. “There will be days when the website stumbles.

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets
