Grading the Eye-Candy Man’s Debate
Gene Lalor | October 8, 2012
The first debate between theÂ two antagonists vying for the privilege to lead the United States of America for the next four years, each intending to impress the American electorate with his intelligence, knowledge, and expertise, represented not only a crushing blow to Barack Hussein Obama’sÂ re-election prospects.Â
It alsoÂ stands as yet another exposÃ© of his fundamental ineptitude and his outrageous pretensions to being the much-heralded, most brilliant, and most articulate president in our nation’s history.Â
Â In fact, absent his teleprompters which his handlers customarily use to dictateÂ everything he says and how he says it, Obama came across asÂ an ignorant doltÂ serving far above his pay grade and totally unqualifiedÂ toÂ speak intelligently, let alone serve as president.Â
When my son was a freshman at Penn State, his professor in a public speaking class assigned his first speech a C- and explained his reason for the low grade: My son had used the “uh-word” excessively, a sign he either hadn’t prepared well enough, that he wasn’t confident in the speech’s contents, or that he knew he was wrong in what he said.
BuzzFeed.com has compiled an amusing/scaryÂ video collection of our scholar-president’s wasted 51 secondsÂ repeatedly uttering the “uh-word.”Â (http://tinyurl.com/8be7pzz)
A lousy overall performance anyway, it would have been awarded a D+ at best by my son’s prof based onÂ his “uhs”Â alone.Â
However,Â like most teachers, the professor was probably an Obama-lovingÂ ditz who would have cited the same lameÂ excuses Democrats offered for Obama’s fiasco: Denver’s high altitude which deprived him of oxygen and confused him, John Kerry who failed him in debate prep by not confronting him,Â Jim Lehrer who was biased and “too old and too white” to be a moderator, Romney’s repetitive liesÂ that bewidered him, and his 20th wedding anniversaryÂ which distracted him.Â
Leftist loonie Bill Maher suggested our admitted pot-headed prez had spent the million dollarsÂ heÂ contributed to Obama’s campaign on marijuana:Â ”He looked tired. He had trouble getting his answers out. Looks like he took my million and spent it all on weed!”Â Â
UnstatedÂ excusesÂ such as concern over when he could hit the golf course again or whether a President Romney will allow him to take the family on another taxpayer-funded extravagant vacation may come soon.Â
At least theyÂ haven’t blamed G.W. Bush!Â Yet.Â
To be fair, the press-conference-averse president hadn’t debated forÂ years and heÂ had become accustomed to leftist media adulation and softball interviewsÂ when heÂ was asked probingÂ questionsÂ dealing withÂ his favorite chili, his iPod playlist, Carly Rae Jepsenâ€™s hit single “Call Me Maybe,” and referred to himself as “eye candy.”Â
Prior to Mitt Romney, the last time anyone had challenged Barack Obama face-to-face may have been whenÂ he was asked to explain his relationship with his radical pastor of 20 yearsÂ or when his daughters persuaded him to “evolve” over the issue of same-sex marriage.Â
Last Wednesday, Barack Hussein Obama hadn’t prepared well enough because he’s Obama and feels everyone else is a lightweight not worth his bother, heÂ wasn’t confident in his responses and observationsÂ becauseÂ he only believes in what he’s told to believe, and he knew everything he said was a lie.Â
A D+ for Obama in Debate #1 would be a gift.Â I’m sure he will do better on October 16th andÂ perhapsÂ manage a C-, that is if he shows up.
