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.”

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Why doesn’t Obama blame the ones he really wants to blame — The American People? He did so much for us and we are ungrateful enough to want someone else as President. We are so baaaaad.

    Ok Obama have it your way. At the next debate jump up and down and act like a total lunatic and see how that plays with the public. Fact is Romney acts like a President and has the ability to become a good one. Kiss it goodbye baby — you just jumped the shark.

    Obama never seems to run out of people to blame. If Roosevelt acted like this we would all be speaking German now.

    Gee what would happen if Russia or China or NK or Iran decide to get into Obama’s face? WIll he fold up like the cheap suit he is?

    Maybe they will switch sides so Obama can get away with giving mitt the finger like he
    did to Hill and M’cain. He does it by rubbing his cheek and every schoolkid knows that trick. so the audience laughs and the oppoing ar throw of message as the look around.
    This is all Kabuki, All a distraction from Obama numbers and the gas,etc and the Exec orders and transforming our beauitful republic to a soviet-style eastern block collection of what? No tenth amendment any more…Maybe a collection of proto-gulags.

    If The Republicans win big the Dem Party will form a circular firing squad with everyone blaming everyone else for the loss. The conclusion they will finally come to is that Obama really did win after all but Romney and The Republican Party have conspired to keep Obama from the Presidency.

    So, we’ve got somebody who proposes to be the chief executive, somebody who will select people to whom responsibility will be delegated, who is to spell out their charter and duties, and make sure they are carrying them out. Now, one of the candidates let’s his flunkees admit that he failed to adequately select and control a delagatee whose performance was immediately apparent. And, as if that is not damning enough, he let’s that admission become his position by letting it stand.

    Zero demonstrates daily why he is unfit to lead. Let’s hope he offs himself when he loses by a landslide.

    **SHOCK** Obama Nearly Matches 2008 Monthly Fundraising Record

    me: I would say that when a president has been absent as a president and during his uninspiring Senate time, going on campaigns, dinners with Hollywood, favors received or what I call payola. Well, then, Rocket Man Money man and he just doesn’t want to be out done. PERIOD.

    Here is what article says:

    Amidst reports President Barack Obama’s campaign has tried to block national outlets from publishing stories about a potential campaign finance scandal, the Obama campaign announced on Twitter Saturday it raised $181 million in September in conjunction with the Democratic National Committee.

    According to the campaign’s tweets, 1,825,813 people donated to the campaign in September and, despite the sluggish economy and less enthusiasm for Obama than in 2008, 567,000 of those donors were new, meaning they had not donated to the campaign before in 2008 or 2012.

    In addition, 98% contributions to the Obama campaign in September were $250 or less, and the average contribution was $53.

    Under Federal Election Commission (FEC) regulations, campaigns have to make their “best efforts” to collect information about contributors who donate $50-$200, but those who donate less than $200 do not have to be publicly disclosed.

    Further, all donations less than $50 fall under the “Pass-the-Hat” rule, which means campaigns do not have to make their “best efforts” to collect identifying information on these donors and can actually report all such donations under a lump sum.

    This means that the Obama campaign must legally disclose only about half of its September donors.

    David Plouffe, the campaign’s senior adviser who was Obama’s campaign manager in 2008, in his 2009 book, The Audacity to Win, compared the campaign’s online fundraising performance in 2008 to an erupting volcano.

    “There were times when we were raising $250,000, $300,000, even $500,000 an hour,” Plouffe wrote. “It was remarkable, and critical.”{………..}



    Oh, that says it, another Cover up, gee, I should have known.

    Debate: What Romney Did, What Obama Didn’t, What Ryan Should–And How Romney Can Take It All


    Psychological theories abound as to why Obama failed to attack Romney last week, but left-wing comedian Bill Maher–who donated $1 million to the Obama campaign–might have said it best in a tweet: “I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Obama looks like he DOES need a teleprompter.” Summing up the liberal-left disappointment with Obama in a single sight gag, the New Yorker magazine, on its latest cover, showed the President as invisible–just an empty chair onstage with Romney, a belated vindication of Clint Eastwood’s August 30 “speech” at the Tampa convention.

    But the problem for Obama is that his onstage failure of nerve was more than a missed opportunity to slug Romney in front of 67 million TV viewers. The real problem is that Obama effectively undercut the validity of his whole campaign. That is, if the President himself doesn’t think that all those negative attacks on Romney are worth mentioning in person, why should voters pay attention to them as they appear in commercials? If the White House in Washington isn’t heeding the message of Axelrod & Co. in Chicago, why should the rest of us? In other words, what exactly is the Chicago gang doing with that anticipated billion dollars in campaign funds? Are they a rogue operation of political hit men? Does Obama keep tabs on his own campaigners?

    Once again: If the Obama campaign attacks on Romney are true, why didn’t Obama himself repeat them in Denver, man to man? And if attacks are not true, then why should the American people heed them?

    Meanwhile, the result for Romney has been seismic. It’s not that Romney was superman; he was good, but not great–more on that later. Instead, the earthquake from Denver was Obama’s own fecklessness, thereby shaking the foundations of his own political support.[………………….]

    More about all that new money BHO’s getting. He’s at it again —

    One last thing, I’m listening to Bob Woodward on Hannity (night of 10-5-12) who is saying that there is a major, looming campaign donation scandal, involving overseas contributions and Obama’s campaign. Remember the name DooDadPro from the Powerline story above.

    According to knowlegable sources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.

    Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday. Source: Hot Air

    Why would a campaign turn-off credit card verification systems?

    Before the 2008 election, I spent hours at the Federal Election Commission website, documenting the donations to Obama from Arabic/sounding/seeming names, and linked back to them.

    Never had so much hate mail in all my 5+ years of blogging.

    Wonder if John Kerry realizes he ain’t nothing but another bump in Obama’s road. The blame belongs to everybody but the “Anointed One”. The more of these fools we get rid of this election the better off the country will be.

    ” 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. ”

    Here’s why this is BS. The president won the coin flip and went first. There was nobody in in his face (although Romney may have been in his head) and he still gave a pathetic response to an open-ended question about jobs. The president had a chance to take control of the debate from the get-go and botched it badly. That’s no one’s fault but his own.

    Normally success has a thousand fathers and failure is an orphan. With Obama failure ends up having a thousand fathers as he blames hundreds and throws dozens under the bus.

    Columbia classmate: Obama using IRS to punish me

    [Root won a complete victory three months ago in tax court, which
    found no taxes owed in his 2007 and 2008 filings. But then, he said,
    something shocking happened – something his tax attorney has
    never heard of in his entire career. Root was hit with a new audit
    just five days later, for 2009 and 2010.

    “That order had to come from the highest
    levels of government,” he asserted.

    “Obama is using the power of the IRS and other government agencies
    to punish his political opposition and intimidate and silence his critics,”
    Root charged.]

    we know it”s true, i hope he can sue or something, if not, he’ll
    find himself a “political prisoner” if O wins (by crock and crook)
