Forum Post: Why Obama lost the Debate...

He is a strawman for special intrests. His handlers could not guide him via teleprompter. Looking down and away is a sign of submission. He's a Beta, with out doubt. Opinions welcome.

Bill Maher tweeted that Obama needed his teleprompter - that's the reason he lost - he was at a loss for words -

Was Bill reading that statement offf a teleprompter? Just a thought.

[-] 2 points by Shayneh (-482) 1 year ago

Nah, you know how Bill Maher is - he has no tact - doesn't matter who it is.

During next debates, turn off the sound and watch macro/micro facial expressions and body language. It will be very easy to tell who "won".

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

Its late and I'm tired. Thank you for your opinions. I enjoyed them all. Good night.

Maybe he was sandbagging to rob Mittens of his underdog points. Remember, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't really plotting against you!

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

Good point. But thats a very minor thing," under dog points". If he had kicked ass his bump would be 10 times higher than "under dog points"

I started to watch the October 3rd debate. The first question about jobs, Obama started talking about how happy he is to be married to his wife. I shut it off.

Obama and Mitt both won. The public still thinks today, like they did two days ago, that this is as good as it gets.

America lost.

you corporate cronies need to quit worrying about wich puppet wins the stage for the next 1% free for all. WTFU

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

Sorry child, I'm far from a "corporate crony". 52yrs old and proud to say I've never worked for a corp. I go my own way.

[-] 1 points by JustinDM (251) from Atascadero, CA 1 year ago

anyone who has advocated for a Repub or Dem pesident in the last 20 years has done 'work' for corp's. Maybe you just never got payed.

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

I cant support Reps or Dems. They are equally corrupt. Even have many of the same paymasters.

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1241) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

Why did he lose the debate? Who cares. Obama came off as being a human being and he tried to show the moderator some respect. Romney failed on both counts.

[-] 1 points by Shayneh (-482) 1 year ago

Yah, Romney slapped him down - Obama usually comes off as being smug - "look at me, I'm the man" - hold on I'll sing you a song" - it goes on and on.

He looked like a "deer in headlights" getting ready to be taken out.

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1241) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

If being rude is your strategy I say go with it. It could work I suppose.

[-] 1 points by Shayneh (-482) 1 year ago

Romney wasn't rude - just tactical - and showed confidence - Obama on the other hand continually looked down while Romney was directly looking at him when he was talking.

Body language says a lot about an individual - I wonder what happened to Obama - someone said he suffered from "altitude adjustment" because he only came in two hours before the debate.

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

When watching a Professional Politician speak, it is better to watch body language and facial expression. His indicated total submission. He was obviously lost without a teleprompter. When pressed he resorted to old talking points as a safety mechanisim.

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1241) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

Romney was rude.

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

I'm not a fan of Romney. He did what Alphas do. he controlled his environment very well. He ran that show. That ability is what it takes to run a country. Can you imagine how bad someone like Putin would run over Obama?

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1241) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

Then what should we do, elect Tony Saprano?

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

Rather have Tony than Mr Rogers.

[-] 1 points by stevebol (1241) from Milwaukee, WI 1 year ago

Why?

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

In the world we face, you ask "why"?

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

McCain "won" a debate in 08. Look at what an ass kicking that election turned into.

[-] 1 points by Shayneh (-482) 1 year ago

You are forgetting - next week we are going to have the "Gaff Biden" debating Ryan. It is anticipated that there will be more people watching this debate then any of the other debates.

I wonder why?

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

I'll watch that. Should be fun. Biden is an old war horse and will not enjoy a young punk button holing him on issues. The chance of an epic fuk up is worth staying up.

[-] 1 points by Shayneh (-482) 1 year ago

I agree - should be very interesting.

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

Not living in '08. An incumbent President should not be as submissive as he was. This President even managed to piss off the far left, his base. WTF?

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

If thats how it went, then that beacause thats how they wanted it to go dude. Central planning, mass mindset manipulation.

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

The public is easily manipulated. The media will make sure Obama wins in the end.

[-] 0 points by Clicheisking (-210) 1 year ago

Doesn't matter. Obama will still win reelection.

[-] 1 points by Skippy2 (485) 1 year ago

He might if he can find his nuts in the bottom of his wife's purse.
