He Thought He Won

Obama Didn’t Know?

 

 

” If this is true, it’s amazing.  And I’m not ashamed to say, it makes me feel giddy.  From the Daily Mail UK:

When President Barack Obama stepped off the stage in Denver last week the 60 million Americans watching the debate against Mitt Romney already knew it had been a disaster for him.

But what nobody knew, until now, was that Obama believed he had actually won.

In an extraordinary insight into the events leading up to the 90 minute showdown which changed the face of the election, a Democrat close to the Obama campaign today reveals that the President also did not take his debate preparation seriously, ignored the advice of senior aides and ignored one-liners that had been prepared to wound Romney.”

  ““Barone: Obama believes success is a gift from government”

” Perhaps the rain made the teleprompter unreadable. That’s one thought I had on pondering Barack Obama’s comments to a rain-soaked rally in Roanoke, Va., last Friday. Perhaps he didn’t really mean what he said. Or perhaps — as is often the case with people when unanchored from a prepared text — he revealed what he really thinks. ”

    It certainly is revealing every time this “smartest of all White House occupants” slips his leash from his Telebuddy minder and speaks extemporaneously .

   Some hidden truth always seems to find its way to the surface .

Yes indeed Wile E , you were elected to tell a good story . What an a….le .

  ” When I think about what we’ve done well and what we haven’t done well,” the president said, “the mistake of my first term – couple of years – was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that’s important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially
during tough times.” “

  ” You can tell that President Obama’s press conference statement Friday morning — “The PRIVATE SECTOR IS DOING FINE”— is a big problem for Democrats, the left, and much of the media simply because they’re spending so much time and energy denying that it is.”

Read this and visit the reason for the denial .

Blumer goes on

 
   ” Even on a percentage basis, it’s clear that the private sector, where employment is almost 4% lower than it was at peak employment, is still the biggest problem — or “drag,” if you will — of the bunch. Wait until you see what that means in terms of actual headcount: ”

  Denial is all they can do at this point . This is a George H W Bush scanner moment . Of course the press wasn’t carrying Bush Sr’s water as with our dear Wile E but these kind of numbers cannot be ignored or buried on page 23 .

   Which leaves us , the producing , wealth creating , government subsidizing , taxpaying citizens about like this …

We realize that in the past we’ve portrayed our buddy Wile E as Obama , as we will continue to do , and that this time we used him as a metaphor for US .

Our apologies …

  We are thinking though , that the above picture could also represent  (hopefully) Obama and his chances come November …

   That’s a more pleasant reality to strive towards .

Ed Morrissey :

“Anyone want to try defining “overnight” for me, just so that we have a rule of thumb going forward? On Inauguration Day, I would have accepted “2009″ or even “his first two years in office” as plausible answers. Instead, five months out from election day, somehow dawn still has yet to break. His braintrust is now actually on the cusp of arguing, in all seriousness, that it’s unfair to judge him on what’s happened in the jobs market over the course of his entire first term.”

From the WSJ

“President Obama, in speech after speech, proudly makes the following point: Although we inherited the worst recession since the Great Depression, we have generated net new jobs every month, and while we need to do more, we are going in the right direction.

Of course, recoveries always go in the right direction—that is, things get better over time. But merely going in the right direction is an incredibly low performance standard. Moreover, since deep recessions are generally followed by more robust recoveries, this should have been one of the strongest recoveries ever.”

  In order to facilitate growth one has to reduce taxes and regulation . Government spending our tax dollars (stimulus) does not spur private industry and when the stimulus primarily went to prop up union jobs ( democratic constituencies) it was bound to provide anemic or non-existent growth . How anemic you ask ? 

“Sadly, this recovery is near the bottom of all 11. Cumulative nonfarm job growth is just 1.9% 34 months into recovery, the ninth-worst performance and well below the average job growth of 6.5%. Cumulative GDP growth is just 6.8% 11 quarters into this recovery, less than half the average (15.2%) and the worst of all 11.”

 This is what you get when you have a leadership made up primarily of people that have no business experience and don’t have the first clue what it takes to create a job .

Just another case of “we the people ” knowing better what’s going on than our clueless leaders . Remind me again , what do we pay them for ?

“Voters overwhelmingly reject the idea that the war on terror is over one year after the death of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden, although most feel his al Qaeda terrorist group is weaker today. But a majority also still thinks a terrorist attack is possible in the next year.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 11% of Likely U.S. Voters think the war on terror is over. Seventy-nine percent (79%) say that war, declared after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America, is not over. Another 11% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Biden and Obama’s Big Stick . I’ve posted the video ( actually two different versions ) over at the Politics page but this one deserves the wider exposure that the Editorial page offers . The man is absolutely clueless . His stupidity does not speak well of the voters in Delaware.
