Hah-Hah!… Obama Camp Blames John Kerry For Debate Loss (Video)

Too funny.
Team Obama blamed Lurch for the embarrassing debate loss in front of 67 million Americans on Wednesday night.
CBS reported:

Alex Marlow at Breitbart has the transcript:

Norah O’Donnell: “Some Democrats say [Obama’s] campaign needs a wake-up call. Bill Plante is here with that part of the story. Bill, you’ve been talking to your sources; what are they saying?

Correspondent Bill Plante: “Well Norah, they’re simply upset and really outraged. They blame the President’s team, first of all, for not preparing him to meet the challenge of an aggressive Mitt Romney. They say that nobody in the room challenged him, including the guy that he was debating with, John Kerry, because, as they say, he wants to be Secretary of State so he’s not going to get in the President’s face. And Presidents are used to deference; they’re not used to people challenging them like that. So they think that the debate prep was terrible, but they also fault the President himself for not understanding that Romney was going to be more aggressive.”

    How in the world could Paul Ryan make VP Joe Biden seem out of touch? Tongue firmly planted in cheek.

    at least lurch is man enough to admit he made a mistake in not helping obama more. He will throw himself under the bus to save obama the trouble of throwing him under the bus, he is one heck of a guy.

    Presidents are used to deference

    President Bush surely didn’t get any deference . . . .

    Liberals Blame Racism, Environmentalism for Obama’s Debate Loss

    Michael Moore


    For the past 2 days, the Right has been pounding their “Obama is an angry black man video.” Did this affect O, that he had to appear timid?


    or this: 2007 Daily Caller video of Obama praising Rev. Wright and in Obama style dialect.
    But the truth is:

    Obama’s losing debate performance may be more devastating to his re-election chances than most members of the chattering class realize. Here’s why.

    For the past few years, the Obama folks have been riding what they think is the political equivalent of famed Triple Crown winner Secretariat. Every move they have made and every word they have uttered has been filtered through that lens. And of course the sympathetic media has been complicit.

    The problem for Team Obama is that it was never true. Barack Obama was elected in 2008 in large part because of his personality — he was cool — and as a consequence of historical factors that no longer apply.

    Nor was Team Obama’s caricature of Mitt Romney as a weird, profoundly out-of-touch plutocrat accurate, as Romney proved Wednesday night.

    Once these realities dawn on the Obama folks — and I’m sure they are by now — the Obama campaign will fall apart. There will be a lot of second-guessing at their headquarters in Chicago. Staples will be used as projectiles. It’ll be ugly.

    As they say, the bigger they are, the harder they fall.

    But, so far no one as Blamed Bush for Obama’s poor performance.

  • Clafoutis

    I wish John Kerry would decide he’s not going to take this abuse.

    I wish he’d speak out — and reveal what REALLY happened trying to prep Bathhouse Barry for the debate.

    C’mon, John — grow a pair.

    not a single one of them realize The One is nothing more than an empty suit. A con man. Not one of them realize there’s a very good reason his academic records are sealed. I cringe every time I hear someone say how “intelligent” Obama is.

    the best part is that all this time, his adoring media puppets thought they were helping by “protecting” him from tough questions. Turns out that may be his undoing. Gotta’ love the irony.

  • The best comment I read about this was that John Kerry was going to be sent back to Easter Island with all the other long faced Moai! Bwhahahahaha!

    Always blaming everyone and everything for his own failings… Obama is a textbook pathological narcissist.

    Hilarious: Obama’s Friends Explain Why He Lost The Debate
    (Hint: It Might Involve Him Being Too Smart, Too Kind, Too High-Minded, and Too Cool)

    Mockery on Twitter, compiled by Twitchy.

    Here’s the original article.

    Here are the Top Ten reasons Obama lost the debate, per Obama’s friends, as sympathetically reported by The New Yorker:

    1. He’s Just Too Interested In Finding Common Ground and Rising Above Petty Disputes To Lower Himself To Being An Effective Debater.

    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—but he won as a voice of conciliation. He avoided the Ames Moot Court Competition, where near contemporaries like Cass Sunstein, Deval Patrick, and Kathleen Sullivan made their names.

    When Obama avoids competition, it’s always because he could win — if he wanted to. But he’s too good for that.

    It’s never because he’s just not good at it.

  • Any normal person would be insulted if this number of excuses were made to cover their poor performance. It’s rather pathetic, but whatevs!

    President Barack Obama will have to do some serious acting tonight.

    Obama returns to Hollywood for yet another star-studded fundraiser, but this time he’ll have to sell his minions on the notion that his disastrous debate performance Wednesday in Denver was a one-time only affair.

    President Barack Obama returns to Los Angeles Sunday for a star-bedecked celebrity concert and fundraising dinner. In the wake of his Denver debate troubles, however, the long scheduled visit has acquired another, equally urgent purpose—reassuring his Hollywood supporters that he’s fighting to win the race and he’s poised for a comeback in the next televised forum with former Gov. Mitt Romney….

    There’s also no doubt that the president’s Hollywood supporters were deeply shaken by his lackluster performance in this week’s debate with Republican nominee Romney….

    The cloud of anxious fallout from Denver has all but overshadowed what otherwise would be considered a particularly glittering and gala L.A. appearance for Obama. His Sunday evening will kick off with a concert at downtown L.A.’s Nokia Theater featuring Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Hudson, Earth Wind and Fire, and Jon Bon Jovi. Presidential pal Clooney will make a special appearance to introduce Wonder. Afterward, Obama will head next door for a $25,000-per-plate dinner at Wolfgang Puck’s chic WP24.
