Obama Gets Snippy with Lehrer: “I Had Five Seconds Before You Interrupted Me” (Video)

This was not one of Barack’s better moments at the debate last night.

Barack got snippy with moderator Jim Lehrer:
“I had five seconds before you interrupted me.”

You’ve gotta love Mitt Romney’s facial expressions after Obama went after the moderator.

    Come on, Obama did that with a smile.

  • Campfollower

    Not to be over confident, but positive signs today. Husband works with fellow former Marines at a local office. All are/have been close but this campaign has brought out some racial tension. Friends are black, successful, educated but Obama is their guy no matter what. They haven’t wanted any facts, blame Bush, etc. All came in this morning saying, “Wow” about Romney. Of course, their man was “off his game” but they are at least thinking about some things, Romney’s temperament and presentation and performance….impressed them.

    And on the local black rap station (according to my 23 year old daughter) the DJ’s spoke well about Romney and invited black republicans to call them to discuss the evening. This is Atlanta. This is something positive….even having them recognize that there are black republicans is progress.

    One more quick comment: as a journalist, I’ve never before seen another journalist INJECT himself into a debate the way Lehrer actually HELPED or tried to help Obama last night.

    Chris Wallace on FOX was kind to the senior journalist, but really. Unheard of. The worst. If he was in his 20’s or a new journalist, they’d probably fire him. They’d almost have to.

    Anyone unfortunate enough to know personally and unavoidably someone with narcissistic personality disorder (aka malignant narcissism) will recognize with discomfort, distaste and, possibly, nausea that smile on Kenya Boy’s face in the lower pic. It’s the smile that says with confidence (and is sometimes even accompanied with these or similar words), “You know you won’t really hold me accountable for what I just said/did, now, don’t you? After all, it is charming lil’ ol’ me, your favorite BSer. We’re tight, the two of us. We understand each other because we both love me so much.” And, being so familiar with that smile and the meaning behind it, don’t you want to reach out and slap it from his face? I know I’d like to.

    Besides not being able to add, or understand Economics 101, Obama can’t tell time. . or lies. .

    he asked for 5 seconds yet took a few minutes more. .

    And Jim Lehrer was giving Obama a pass and started with round one when he tried to let obama have the last word filled with lies and falsehoods. . good for Romney to say, hey it is my turn to rebut since The President started the segment. . .

    MSMS heads exploding. . .
    You know that we are on target by their shock and anger.

  • AuntieMadder

    @ Campfollower #2: Those are good bits from Atlanta. Thanks for sharing.

    One of the most accurate predictions I ever made here …because Obama is so predictable………posted at 6:54 on ” stage is set ” thread

    The REAL win for Romney was busting through the MSM cocoon last night.

    While Lehrer was NOT a particularly good moderator, he actually did put his hand up and stoped o from commenting one time in mid phrase. Shocked the heck out of me. obama too, I’ll wager.

    obama was obviously miffed that Lehrer wasn’t being a “team” player.

  • Spider

    Leherer was in semi-retirement going into last night, now he will be banished to Siberia by his leftist colleagues.

    It was a perfect night for Mitt. He shined, Oblamer whined.

  • Bogdan from Australia

    It is really mind bogling that so many Yanks could fall for that crawling piece of $**t they call b.HUSSAIN obama.

    I was smelling his revolting stink here in Aussie from the distance of 20 000kms the very moment he had appeared on the politcal scene and it was immediately clear to me that he was a commie PARASITE determined to damage your great country.

    Let’s hope that the American people will begin to demand b. HUSSAIN obama being made accountable for the unprecedented act of vandaism inflicted on America.

    It is a matter of a fundamental importance because such PLUNDER must NEVER be allowed to happen again.

    If American people manage to clasify this properly as a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY and punish perpetrators accordingly, the other countries (like my own Eunuchalia) shall follow and perhaps there will be a hope that the PARASITES will never have opportunity to commit another “generational theft” as Sarah Palin brilliantly described it.

    Greetings from Aussie. I will be as nervous during your election as yourselves.

    I’ll try to find the rap version for all of the black zombies who voted for him four years ago.

    Obama should have threatened to cut funding for PBS.

  • dwdude

    yes, i noticed him helping too. lehrer was setting obama up by framing the questions. i think it’s so common with the media it’s become an automatic response. but i also noticed it ceased later on when romney wouldn’t have any of it and obama scolded lehrer on the five seconds. after he droned on and on to make not much of a point, i knew it was over when lehrer scolded obama back for taking way longer than he asked for. can’t wait for foreign policy when mitt throws back the “shoot first, aim later” comment

    No Mr. President, You HAD FOUR YEARS!!!!

    And you still are INCOMPETENT, INCOHERENT, INEPT and INEXPERIENCED (and radical too)

    Learn to tell time.

    I am happy too. Don’t get me wrong…but

    #5: You’re speaking to me!
    My ex husband has a verified case of NPD & I know that smile all too well. Even Obama’s voice – (pitch & tone), attitude, & the constant stream of BS coming out of his mouth is a carbon copy of the ex. Only difference between the 2 (other than the fact BHO’s made a great career out of his narcissism), is the skin color.
    One reason I can’t stand listening to him is that it’s like hearing the blather I had to endure in my past life! LOL (The other reason is that it’s this usurping commie troll that’s hell bent on my country’s destruction, of course) 😉
    Let that be a lesson to teenagers in love. Ya never know if you may end up with your worst nightmare. My 20 year old daughter learned this from growing up & seeing Mom deal with it first hand. She’s got a great catch of a boyfriend that treats her like gold, but even after 2 years she treads sloooowly & lightly.

    Hey………….cut Lehrer a break. Giving Obama 4 extra minutes to yak did not help him. I am just so thankful that he allowed Romney to talk at all. They usually have set the questions up against the Repub so they have to spend the entire time debating the moderator.

    Obama is so used to having his azz covered with Scoopers that his eyes were begging.

    How dare he have to respond. Can you believe that he actually told Lehrer it was time to move on?

    Lehrer better watch his back. Those knives (Matthews) are coming and little Barry gets even.

  • owl

    Hey Romney camp……………….This morning someone mentioned what I think would be the most perfect ad to follow up this debate.

    Flood the airwaves with Ann Romney’s best line “This man will not fail”.

  • listingstarboard

    The next Presidential debate format is worrisome–a town hall forum moderated by that rancid cow Candy Crowley with the questions coming from “undecided” voters chosen by Gallup. You know, the same Gallup that is being sued by Obama’s DOJ. Romney will need to bring it even harder next time.

    #1 “Come on, Obama did that with a smile.”

    You want that, CT? Here…it’s yours.

    But Lehrer didn’t find it so amusing:

    “Your five seconds went away a long time ago.”

    No fair, Mom. He’s winning and getting the best of the night.
    No fair. I want a do-over.
    You guys wouldn’t let me bring the teleprompter.
    I want prepare questions from now one with prepared responses.
    Michelle, make them stop.
    Ah, umm, Hope & Change.
    Mitt didn’t answer that. We all answered that.

    Of course! Jim Lehrer will need to be openly punished by the Left for his complete failure to support Obama during this debate. After all, that’s WHY he was chosen as moderator in the first place!

    In the coming next few weeks, I fully expect Jim Lehrer to be shunned by his commie comrades in leftist-dominated PBS, suddenly announce his retirement and go quietly into the night.

    If there’s one thing that we’ve learned from the Left over the years, it’s that they don’t tolerate failure and they have to publicly humiliate those who do fail so they can send a clear message to everybody else about what’s expected from their fellow comrades.

    Here is a good perspective on Rope-a-Dope Obama


  • BurmaShave

    OK it’s official: This time it’s Jim Lehrer’s fault.

    It seems impossible to pin the tail on this donkey (Obama). {snort}

  • Sandy

    The split screen said it all. Romney looked healthy and energetic while Obama appeared beaten down and had dirty teeth next to those front caps.

    In Romney people saw a man who was eager for the challenge, a man who had faced tough challenges and and won. Obama on the other hand had depended on other people to grease his path. They greased it so well he fell on his face.

  • FurryGuy

    Oh yeah, Leher is getting taken to the woodshed by the Left for his treasonous moderation:

    Tough reviews for Jim Lehrer as debate moderator

  • BarbaraS

    In that photo Romney is looking at obama like “i can’t believe what an idiot you are”.

  • MicahStone

    The bottom line: Romney showed up to do the job, while OBOZO simply expected his socialist media stooge to, as always, cover his A – but lehrer failed in his MOST IMPORTANT ASSIGNMENT. OBOZO is soooooo upset at lehrer’s failure to make him look good (and slime Romney), he might take back a couple of million dollars of lehrer’s taxpayer-funded, BIG GOVERNMENT provided PBS salary.
